From the August 2004 Idaho Observer:

Clay Douglas recovering from near fatal crash

Last May Independent Publisher Clay Douglas of the Free American and ThunderRiders was in a serious motorcycle accident. He suffered several broken bones and serious head injuries. Progress reports have been few and far between as the Douglas family desired to maintain a degree of privacy as they awaited signs that Clay would begin to recover.

On August 6, 2004 Patriot broadcaster Jeffrey Bennett, after an extended phone conversation with Clay's wife Janet, reported that Clay's physical and neurological functions are beginning to return and improvements in both areas of his health are being noticed day by day.

Clay is currently at the Barrows Neurological Institute of St. Joseph's Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona. His family reports that he is just now beginning to realize he was in a serious accident. He is able to read and write, but his memory is still pretty fuzzy.

Though The Free American has not been published since the accident, the Douglas family is working on putting out the third edition of ThunderRiders since Clay's accident. The family is considering the possibility of publishing the Free American on a quarterly basis until Clay has recovered sufficiently to get back to work. All indicators at this time are that he will regain much of his previous mental capacities and will be able to resume publishing The Free American in the foreseeable future.

In the mean time, the Douglas' medical bills are becoming substantial. The offices and property in Bingham, New Mexico have been put up for sale. Anyone with a serious interest in purchasing the Bingham property please call Janet at 1-888-678-1444.

Clay may be able to have visitors soon. If you happen to be in the Phoenix area and would consider dropping in to see our (temporarily) fallen freedom fighter, contact his family first at the number above to see if a visit can be arranged.

This nation owes the Douglas' a debt of gratitude for the sacrifices they have made to stay in print and do their part to restore the Republic. Clay, who has always been as strong in body as he is belligerent in spirit, has a long and difficult rehabilitative road ahead.

Please direct your warm thoughts and prayers for a quick recovery to Clay and his family. ~The IO Staff
