(Image:Tee Ball.jpg) '''White House Tee Ball Initiative''' refers to efforts by President (President of the United States) George W. Bush to promote baseball and softball by allowing youth Tee Ball events on the grounds of the White House in Washington, D.C.. The event was first held in 2001. The plan was to invite teams from around the United States to play Tee Ball at the White House. Teams were to be selected by the Little League Baseball Association (Little League Baseball). Tim hosted the ''Brant & Parks'' morning show on WMAL (WMAL (AM)) radio in Washington, DC for over ten years. The show was political in nature, and co-hosts included late White House press secretary Tony Snow. Tim has volunteered at several White House events under the Reagan and both Bush administrations. Events have included the Easter egg roll and announcing little league softball on the South Lawn. Tim was criticized by some media outlets for casually referring to President (President of the United States) George W. Bush as "partner" while speaking during a little league softball game at the White House. Tim has had President George Herbert Walker Bush in the booth with him while announcing college football games in the state of Texas.

She was only 10 years old when her father became President after William McKinley's assassination in 1901. During her family's years in the White House, Ethel always tried to keep as low a profile possible because she did not seem to enjoy the attention as much as her half-sister Alice Roosevelt (Alice Roosevelt Longworth) did. She was also encouraged to maintain her low-key persona by her mother Edith, who believed that women only made the news to announce her birth, marriage and her death. Ethel attended school at the National Cathedral (National Cathedral School) and had difficulty making friends due to her father's position. Just months before the Roosevelts' departure from the White House, Ethel had her Debut (Debutante) and Coming Out Party in the White House on December 28, 1908. Ethel was just 17 at the time of her debut, one year shy of the typical age of 18 that most women "came out." The reason for this being the fact that the family was due to leave the White House less than three months following Ethel's debut. This would be last opportunity to do so if Ethel was to "come out" from Pennsylvania Avenue.

In 1977 she made her final visit to the White House to see Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn (Rosalynn Carter). Finally, in December, 1977, she died at the Adam-Derby House in Oyster Bay, New York, aged 86 years; she was buried in the nearby Youngs Memorial Cemetery where her parents, husband and other relatives are also buried. She was survived by her two daughters, Edith and Sarah (both now deceased), nine grandchildren (one of whom has died) and two siblings, Archie Roosevelt (Archibald Roosevelt) and Alice Longworth (Alice Roosevelt Longworth) who both are now deceased. *"I am inclined to think there is no military body in our country of higher efficiency than the Marine Corps. Of course their problems are simpler than ours. Their esprit de corps is very high; they take great pride in their professionalism. They never let things slack a bit." — RAdm C. M. Winslow (Cameron Winslow), before the House Committee on Naval Affairs in 1916 (1 June 2007 - 1 July 2007) *"I had always enjoyed the title of Commander-in-Chief (Commander_in_Chief#United_States) until I was informed … that the only forces that cannot be transferred from Washington (Washington, D.C.) without my express permission are the members of the Marine Corps Band (United States Marine Band). Those are the only forces I have. I want it announced that we propose to hold the White House against all odds at least for some time to come." — President John F. Kennedy, 12 July 1962 during a visit to Marine Barracks, Washington, D.C. (1 July 2007 - 1 September 2007) * "...We are intensely proud of their noble record and are glad to have had the whole world see how irresistible they are in their might when a cause which America holds dear is at stake. The whole nation has reason to be proud of them." — President Woodrow Wilson to MajGen George Barnett, 12th CMC (Commandant of the Marine Corps), 14 August 1919(1 September 2007 - 30 September 2007) After graduation, MacKenzie drove an ice cream truck (Ice cream van) in Washington, D.C. One day he suffered a psychotic break after a particularly high dose of LSD (Lysergic acid diethylamide), and he climbed over the White House fence. The United States Secret Service apprehended him as he ran up the White House lawn. He told the officers he was "looking for the center of universe." They hauled him off to St. Elizabeths Hospital-- the largest long-term mental hospital (Psychiatric hospital) that serves Washington, D.C.). That incident led to a diagnosis of schizophrenia, for which MacKenzie was medicated for the rest of his life. Her studies were interrupted for some time when her mother suffered a stroke, and was left an invalid. Helen moved into the White House with her family, and helped her mother to regain body movement and speech. She also served as official hostess for many White House functions while her mother was disabled. In December, 1910, Helen was given a debutante party at the White House. In Pierre (Peter) Charles L'Enfant (Pierre L'Enfant)'s plan for the capital city, the site of the Patent Office Building, halfway between the Capitol (United States Capitol) and the President's House (White House), was set aside for a monumental structure. L'Enfant envisaged a nondenominational "church of the Republic", which he later modified to a Pantheon (Pantheon (structure)) devoted to great Americans.
