Operation Phoenix Update -- May 7th
Hello Fellow Rangers:
I wanted to chime in now that we are almost 2 weeks post the Welcome Home to Jericho event. Where do we go from here is the logical question on everybody's mind. Those who had the privilege of attending the event and helped raise over $5,000 for Operation Homefront also got the chance to meet their fellow rangers, many for the first time. They had a chance to meet and talk with the actors and writers and got a tour of the set.
For many new friendships were made or old ones re-enforced and everyone who went or attended the auction online have stated they do not want to lose those relationships. Ichthus made a post this past week that was dead on. We are all campaigned out. Many of us have campaigned since May 2007 and we are tired and want to move on.
The Welcome Home to Jericho event was a once in a life time event and I do not see it ever being duplicated. Most of the actors, writers and producers are currently working on other projects and would love to do the movie if it gets the go ahead from CBS Paramount but they have careers and families to think about.
I had a chance to talk with Gwen earlier this week and my 2 cents is this. What we do know is that the movie is somewhere in the development phase. The series has continued to run on the CW and will continue through June 14th with Patriots and Tyrants. It continues to run on SyFy with another marathon scheduled for May.
CBS Paramount has been collecting data with the graphs and charts we have sent, feed back forms, views on cbs.com, joost and youtube, letters and emails, and yes the Nielsen numbers. Our best bet is that someone within the finance department at CBS Paramount has an epiphany after looking at all the numbers from the most recent run of Jericho and the box office numbers for Star Trek and decides that the Jericho franchise is still a worthwhile investment.
This weekend the latest movie in the Star Trek franchise is hitting the theaters. We have seen reports from CBS Paramount that due to the current economic conditions they are planning to only greenlight movies, tv shows for franchises they own such as Star Trek or in our case Jericho. I think what happens with the gate receipts for current Star Trek film will have a direct bearing on the decisions makers at Paramount as to whether or not they will move forward with the Jericho film within the next year.
The question remains for those of us who are left in the online community is what can we do to help persuade the bean counters at CBS Paramount to get the movie into production. Quite simply we need to just continue to spread the word at the grass roots level and to maintain our social network as best we can on facebook, on the boards and through local gatherings.
What we can do is to organize local regional Ranger get togethers, I know that I have spoken with several Rangers including General Patton and Bee Bull about getting together this summer. I will be reaching out to people to see if they would like to be a regional coordinator, a sort of contact person for their neck of the woods.
Another way to keep Jericho alive is to attend local conventions in your area such as the Comic Con being held this July in San Diego. I hope to be in California for work and make it to comic-con.
Those who read comic books, the Jericho comic book will most likely be out this year and in many cases like Star Trek it is used as a way to broaden the fan base and to transition and lead into the film.
I am also sending out one more email, post card and letter to CBS paramount, Epix and Comcast just to let them know I am still here and interested in the show. Addresses are attached. My hope is that by keeping up socially and getting together in small groups that we will not lose touch and when time comes for the movie we will be here to help promote it and get people into the theater to watch.
The One thing I learned form the Welcome Home to Jericho Event is that this is a great community worth keeping together.

How to Find a Convention in Your Area
Lists of conventions:
Always check to make sure the weblink to the convention is active, since these types of lists are not always updated. A lot of the smaller cons don't get listed in these national search lists.
If there is no listing for the area you are looking at then do a Google search for "sci fi con or Comic Con, city X" and see if something pops up.
If you are trying to get a table at a con, you contact the vendors/dealers/exhibitors staff and say that you want to run a fan table for Jericho. Tell them you will only be passing out information and that you are not selling anything. A lot of cons will let you have the table for free or a discounted rate and some will let you have free passes to the con.
If you need help please contact Gwen at firstname.lastname@example.org

It's Been a Great Ride!
Nancy and I want to Thank all of our friends who have supported the Donation sites on the SyFy Forum and the UHD Board. Also all the members of all the active Jericho sites through out the Web.
We are a taking a step back to deal with some real life issues in our health care and other financial needs. Nothing life threatening, so don't worry! It will take a lot of work to reach our own personal goals. Jericho has meant a lot to us this past year and we went out with a Big Bash! It was wonderful meeting all our friends. But now it's time to take control of us and concentrate on our needs. Jericho will follow the path that it has been given and will always be in our hearts. We will still listen for news stories and hopefully a movie too. This is not Good-bye, but a leave of absence.
We wish you all well in your own personal lives and also for those who will remain strong to keep the fight alive.
Thank You from the bottom of our hearts and our sincere gratitude to all of you that have effected our lives in such a positive manner.
May God Bless you all.
Dean & Nancy Moering

Youtube viewing update!
From The Porch Lady:
Great news Rangers! This past week the Pilot episode of Jericho made it past the 100,000 view mark!
Even more good news...the first ten episodes have exceeded the 70,000 view mark. All this youtube activity has happened in less than six months. Jericho is still rocking!
To continue this amazing trend and show our appreciation of the cast, crew and writers, the following three episodes could use a collective boost to help them reach the 70,000 view mark. Friends and neighbors are welcome to give a hand...of course! The more the merrier. A viewer snowball of sorts.
Return to Jericho is 69,099
901 views to go
Day Before is 69,707
293 views to go
Semper Fidelis is 69,390
610 views to go
The best news is that each and every time an episode is viewed on youtube, we move Jericho closer to that 2 million views mark. And, just in case others aren't keeping track, the accounting office in Jericho is alive and well with rangers who are working to log every single view to share with the network bean counters...because, in Jericho, every viewer counts.
