ASTRONOMY PICTURE OF THE DA
Sound and Light Captured by Mars InSight

Out2News.com

Image Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech

Explanation: Your arm on Mars has unusual powers. For one thing it is nearly 2 meters long, has a scoop and grapple built into its hand, and has a camera built into its forearm. For another, it will soon deploy your ear — a sensitive seismometer that will listen for distant rumblings — onto the surface of Mars. Your SEISmomet-ear is the orange box in the foreground, while the gray dome behind it will be its protective cover. Your arm is attached to the InSight robotic lander that touched down on Mars two weeks ago. Somewhat unexpectedly, your ear has already heard something — slight vibrations caused by the Martian wind flowing over the solar panels. Light from the Sun is being collected by the solar panels, part of one being visible on the far right. Actually, at the present time, you have two arms operating on Mars, but they are separated by about 600 kilometers. That’s because your other active arm is connected to the Curiosity rover exploring a distant crater. Taken a week ago, rusty soil and rocks are visible in the featured image beyond Insight, as well as the orange sky of Mars.

Mark Garwood SHARE Foundation Awarded $25,000 in Educational Scholarships

On Friday, October 26 the Mark Garwood SHARE Foundation awarded $25,000 in educational scholarships to five individuals who qualified for these annual grants at the Foundation’s yearly awards ceremony at the Wells Fargo Private Bank in Palm Beach. The Mark Garwood SHARE Foundation provides grants to individuals who are successfully battling substance use disorder and are seeking support for their educational goals. Nicholas Sladek, Eileen Leo, Lisa Tower, Keli Beeson, and Robert Harry were each given a $5,000 scholarship to continue working toward their college degrees.

“Along with other experts in the field of addiction and recovery we have found that the responsibility and accountability demanded by educational pursuits is a critical external environmental factor that provides a strong incentive for long term recovery from substance use disorder”, says Erica Garwood, President of the Foundation. “Rehabilitation and treatment are an essential first step, but educational goals are a powerful after-care component that restores self-esteem and personal accountability. Recovery + Education = Success”.

The Mark Garwood SHARE Foundation was established in 2014 by Erica and John Garwood after tragically losing their 24 year old son, Mark, to complications from substance abuse. The primary focus of the Foundation is education. Since 2015 the Foundation has awarded 19 scholarships totaling over $100,000 in grants. The Foundation also provides support for the Bridge Scholarship House (a transitional men’s recovery residence providing bed and board for individuals who have no means of support or insurance coverage) and Phoenix House (a women’s recovery residence dedicated in Mark Garwood’s memory).

The Mark Garwood SHARE Foundation, Inc. is a recognized public 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. All donations to the Foundation are tax-exempt under Section 170 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code.

Fort Pierce-Indian River State College (IRSC) will hold two Commencement ceremonies for its Fall 2018 graduates on Wednesday, December 12, at the Havert L. Fenn Center at 2000 Virginia Avenue in Fort Pierce. The ceremonies will recognize more than 2,000 students who have earned their Bachelor’s Degree or Associate Degree during the 2018 Summer I, Summer II and Fall semesters. This marks the third year in a row that IRSC has offered two Fall Commencement ceremonies to accommodate a graduate population that exceeds 2,000 students. (IRSC will hold its traditional Spring Commencement Ceremony in May.)

The Fall Commencement Ceremony for Associate Degree (A.A., A.S. and A.A.S.) recipients takes place at 10 a.m. The Ceremony for Bachelor’s Degree (B.A. and B.A.S.) students begins at 2 p.m. To date for the 2018–19 academic year, 1,585 students have earned an Associate Degree and 443 have earned a Bachelor’s Degree.

“Thousands of Treasure Coast residents realize that a college education is one of the best investments they can make and are increasingly attracted to IRSC,” said Dr. Edwin R. Massey, IRSC President. “We are so proud of what our students have accomplished, and we are confident that the skills and education they obtained here at Indian River will provide the foundation they need to be successful in their career and in life.”

Presenting the Fall Commencement address will be Jay “Hal” Roberts, Jr., Treasure Coast Regional President of CenterState Bank. Since 1988, Roberts has served as the President or CEO of eight different financial institutions, and he was instrumental in the foundation of three Treasure Coast banks: Harbor Federal Savings & Loan, Port St. Lucie National Bank, and Harbor Community Bank

In addition to developing and running numerous local banks, he has overseen major strategic planning endeavors, managed billions in commercial real estate loans, and navigated significant mergers between organizations. As CenterState’s Treasure Coast Regional President, he directly oversees five Community Presidents.

A graduate of Dan McCarty High School in Fort Pierce, Roberts went on to earn his Associate of Arts degree from Indian River Junior College. He received his Bachelor’s Degree from Barry University, and attended the University of South Florida, the University of Georgia, and Rollins College for additional postsecondary studies.

He is a current Board Member with Hospice of the Treasure Coast, and his past service includes working with organizations such as the St. Lucie County EDC, the St. Lucie County Education Foundation, the St. Lucie Medical Center, the United Way of St. Lucie, and more.

Martin Youth LEADERship Program Participated in Economics Day

Out2News.com

Stuart-36 students of this year’s Martin Youth LEADERship Program participated in Economics Day, their third monthly session of the school year, on November 13. Session Coordinator Marie Duenas-Weller from the Business Development Board of Martin County offered the students a full day immersion into “the business of business” on the Treasure Coast.

The day kicked off with brief remarks from Ed Ciampi, Chairman of the Martin County Board of Commissioners, who advised students to use their leadership skills to the betterment of others, especially peers in need of help with the pressures facing today’s teens. He was followed by Ted Astolfi, Executive Director of the Economic Council of Martin County. Mr. Astolfi gave an educational overview of how money flows into and out of our local economy, differentiating between primary and consumptive industries.

Students then toured the Martin County’s Sheriff’s Aviation facility, learning about how the helicopters and the technical equipment used by our MCSO are used to track and, if necessary, capture potential criminals in our county. Students also received a “bird’s eye” view of the Witham Field airport from the Air Traffic Control Tower, learning about the aviation industry and related careers.

MYL students toured Triumph Aerospace Structures, literally learning the “nuts and bolts” of building aircraft. They also toured Southeastern Printing Company, and saw first- hand why Southeastern is an award-winning, full service printing company.

Finally, it was off to lunch at the Hutchinson Island Resort & Spa. The working lunch was graciously underwritten by Fiorella Insurance Agency. While students dined on delicious flatbreads and other treats, Nerissa Okiye, Marketing Manager from the Martin County Tourism and Marketing Department, presented an overview of tourism in our area. She explained why tourism dollars are so important to our local economy, and the ways in which her office attracts and tracks those who visit the Treasure Coast.

The day concluded with a brief, hands-on activity presented by Tim Dougher, Executive Director of the Business Development Board, and Mrs. Weller. Students unleashed their creativity with the “Economic Developer For a Day” activity, offering their insights into how they might convert currently unoccupied commercial real estate into many creative enterprises, from a flea market, to a homeless shelter to a workforce training facility.

For more information on how you, your business or your high school aged students can become involved in Martin Youth LEADERship, please contact Jeanne Dunn at martinyouthleadership@gmail.com or call 772-486-4695. We are constantly seeking to individuals and organizations which will help us inform, challenge and stimulate students to develop the qualities necessary to become the next generation of Treasure Coast leaders.

The Martin Youth LEADERship Program for high school students is in its 22nd year. The group is continually striving to better serve the students that have made application, and been accepted into the program. The Martin Youth LEADERship program is an opportunity for high school sophomores and juniors throughout Martin County to develop and enhance their leadership skills. Students must apply, and a maximum of 40 are selected to participate in this comprehensive nine-month program that is modeled after LEADERship Martin County. Upon completion, these young Leaders have learned about their community including history, government, business, arts and culture, criminal justice and the environment.

Every effort is made to select a racially, gender diverse class representing various levels of leadership experience.

Stuart-36 students of this year’s Martin Youth LEADERship Program participated in Economics Day, their third monthly session of the school year, on November 13. Session Coordinator Marie Duenas-Weller from the Business Development Board of Martin County offered the students a full day immersion into “the business of business” on the Treasure Coast.

The day kicked off with brief remarks from Ed Ciampi, Chairman of the Martin County Board of Commissioners, who advised students to use their leadership skills to the betterment of others, especially peers in need of help with the pressures facing today’s teens. He was followed by Ted Astolfi, Executive Director of the Economic Council of Martin County. Mr. Astolfi gave an educational overview of how money flows into and out of our local economy, differentiating between primary and consumptive industries.

Students then toured the Martin County’s Sheriff’s Aviation facility, learning about how the helicopters and the technical equipment used by our MCSO are used to track and, if necessary, capture potential criminals in our county. Students also received a “bird’s eye” view of the Witham Field airport from the Air Traffic Control Tower, learning about the aviation industry and related careers.

MYL students toured Triumph Aerospace Structures, literally learning the “nuts and bolts” of building aircraft. They also toured Southeastern Printing Company, and saw first- hand why Southeastern is an award-winning, full service printing company.

Finally, it was off to lunch at the Hutchinson Island Resort & Spa. The working lunch was graciously underwritten by Fiorella Insurance Agency. While students dined on delicious flatbreads and other treats, Nerissa Okiye, Marketing Manager from the Martin County Tourism and Marketing Department, presented an overview of tourism in our area. She explained why tourism dollars are so important to our local economy, and the ways in which her office attracts and tracks those who visit the Treasure Coast.

The day concluded with a brief, hands-on activity presented by Tim Dougher, Executive Director of the Business Development Board, and Mrs. Weller. Students unleashed their creativity with the “Economic Developer For a Day” activity, offering their insights into how they might convert currently unoccupied commercial real estate into many creative enterprises, from a flea market, to a homeless shelter to a workforce training facility.

For more information on how you, your business or your high school aged students can become involved in Martin Youth LEADERship, please contact Jeanne Dunn at martinyouthleadership@gmail.com or call 772-486-4695. We are constantly seeking to individuals and organizations which will help us inform, challenge and stimulate students to develop the qualities necessary to become the next generation of Treasure Coast leaders.

The Martin Youth LEADERship Program for high school students is in its 22nd year. The group is continually striving to better serve the students that have made application, and been accepted into the program. The Martin Youth LEADERship program is an opportunity for high school sophomores and juniors throughout Martin County to develop and enhance their leadership skills. Students must apply, and a maximum of 40 are selected to participate in this comprehensive nine-month program that is modeled after LEADERship Martin County. Upon completion, these young Leaders have learned about their community including history, government, business, arts and culture, criminal justice and the environment. Class members are given a rare opportunity to reach their highest leadership potential through sessions focusing on Covey’s Effective Habits and other leadership enhancing activities. Every effort is made to select a racially, gender diverse class representing various levels of leadership experience.

Stuart-36 students of this year’s Martin Youth LEADERship Program participated in Economics Day, their third monthly session of the school year, on November 13. Session Coordinator Marie Duenas-Weller from the Business Development Board of Martin County offered the students a full day immersion into “the business of business” on the Treasure Coast.

The day kicked off with brief remarks from Ed Ciampi, Chairman of the Martin County Board of Commissioners, who advised students to use their leadership skills to the betterment of others, especially peers in need of help with the pressures facing today’s teens. He was followed by Ted Astolfi, Executive Director of the Economic Council of Martin County. Mr. Astolfi gave an educational overview of how money flows into and out of our local economy, differentiating between primary and consumptive industries.

Students then toured the Martin County’s Sheriff’s Aviation facility, learning about how the helicopters and the technical equipment used by our MCSO are used to track and, if necessary, capture potential criminals in our county. Students also received a “bird’s eye” view of the Witham Field airport from the Air Traffic Control Tower, learning about the aviation industry and related careers.

MYL students toured Triumph Aerospace Structures, literally learning the “nuts and bolts” of building aircraft. They also toured Southeastern Printing Company, and saw first- hand why Southeastern is an award-winning, full service printing company.

Finally, it was off to lunch at the Hutchinson Island Resort & Spa. The working lunch was graciously underwritten by Fiorella Insurance Agency. While students dined on delicious flatbreads and other treats, Nerissa Okiye, Marketing Manager from the Martin County Tourism and Marketing Department, presented an overview of tourism in our area. She explained why tourism dollars are so important to our local economy, and the ways in which her office attracts and tracks those who visit the Treasure Coast.

The day concluded with a brief, hands-on activity presented by Tim Dougher, Executive Director of the Business Development Board, and Mrs. Weller. Students unleashed their creativity with the “Economic Developer For a Day” activity, offering their insights into how they might convert currently unoccupied commercial real estate into many creative enterprises, from a flea market, to a homeless shelter to a workforce training facility.

May Smyth to be Honored at 2019 Kiplinger Luncheon

Out2News.com

Out2News.comStuart, November 1 – On January 28, Mary “May” Smyth will be honored by The Library Foundation of Martin County as the 2019 recipient of the Kiplinger Literacy Award.

The award will be presented at the Kiplinger Literacy Award Luncheon, held at Harbour Ridge Yacht & Country Club in Palm City. Knight Kiplinger, editor-in-chief of Kiplinger Publications, will be the keynote speaker.

“Over the years, May has dedicated her considerable energies to ensuring that the foundation continues to thrive. Her leadership and support help provide the necessary resources for many of the essential literacy programs available through the Martin County Library System,” said Stacy Ranieri, president of the foundation’s board of directors. “We are delighted to have this opportunity to recognize May for her many contributions to literacy in Martin County.”

“Our libraries are true gems of Martin County. Libraries and literacy are two things I am passionate about. I feel fortunate to be able to support the efforts of the Library Foundation in sharing these passions with all of Martin County,” said Smyth.

May Smyth and her husband Vincent discovered Martin County as tourists more than 25 years ago. Five years later, they began a new life here as snowbirds when they joined the Sailfish Point community. May has a master’s degree in library science and was active in arts in education programs in New York. She loves to travel and worked for American Airlines after college. Her most memorable trip was a 21-day around-the-world trip.

Smyth served on the Library Foundation board of directors for three three-year terms. She chaired three consecutive fundraising galas and was instrumental in the establishment of the Founders Society, the crucial fundraising arm of the Library Foundation. Her favorite event is BookMania!, the foundation’s free-of-charge annual event. “It is fascinating to hear the authors talk and to learn about what motivates them to write,” said Smyth.

Keynote speaker Knight Kiplinger has deep roots in Martin County and an enduring connection to the Library Foundation. The Kiplinger family has been a part of the Treasure Coast since 1952 when Kiplinger’s grandfather was seeking a refuge from the “hubbub” of Washington, D.C. Among the family’s many contributions to the area was a plot of land on East Ocean Boulevard in Stuart for the construction of the county’s first library.

Kiplinger’s remarks will offer attendees a unique ringside perspective on the leaders and policies that shape our future. The Kiplinger Letter is the most widely read and longest-published business forecasting publication in the world. Among the company’s many accolades, Kiplinger Publications was named one of America’s most ethical companies in 2009 by Ethisphere Magazine.

About The Library Foundation of Martin County
Founded in 1992, the mission of The Library Foundation of Martin County, Inc. is to acquire and administer funds to enrich library services and facilities not met by public funding and to endow the library system for future generations. In addition to the Kiplinger Literacy Award Luncheon, the foundation hosts the annual A Literary Affair dinner in March in conjunction with the BookMania! festival and a Young Literary Leaders awards event.

INDIAN RIVER STATE COLLEGE AWARDED FLORIDA JOB GROWTH GRANT FOR AVIATION AND MARINE TRAINING

Out2News.com

FORT PIERCE, FL – Governor Rick Scott announced on October 30, 2018, that the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) has awarded a $1.53 million grant to Indian River State College (IRSC) through the Florida Job Growth Grant Fund. This award will allow IRSC to expand its nationally recognized model of workforce training and industry partnerships into a new IRSC Aviation and Marine Training Program (AMP) to meet the growing workforce needs of two key industries.

The marine and aerospace industries are significant employers and agents of economic development for Florida’s Treasure Coast. Combined they currently have more than 300 high-wage job openings. Growth in these industries is limited by the need for a specially trained workforce across all levels of employment, which will be addressed by the IRSC Aviation and Marine Training Program.

“Indian River State College has a proven track record of directly responding to workforce needs, particularly in rapidly evolving industries such as aviation and marine manufacturing,” said Dr. Edwin Massey, IRSC President. “We greatly appreciate this support from Governor Scott and the Department of Economic Opportunity as it will help grow local industry and most importantly, expand a talent pipeline of skilled workers, helping hundreds of students qualify for high-wage employment.”

Responsive to community needs for high-tech industrial training and technical certificate programs, the new IRSC Aviation and Marine Training Program will enable IRSC to train up to 140 workers each year. These needs were recognized in the 2017 Treasure Coast Skills Gap Study completed by the St. Lucie County Economic Development Council (EDC).

“Manufacturing is so vitally important to the Treasure Coast and Florida as a rich source of high-skill, high-wage jobs. Our region boasts a well-defined cluster of aviation and marine-related companies which are growing and expanding,” said Peter Tesch, President, Economic Development Council of St. Lucie County. “Workforce readiness is now the currency of economic development and the Governor’s award of the Job Growth Grant Fund to IRSC will pay dividends to both employers and the skilled professionals they hire.”

The Aviation and Marine Training Program will prepare workers for careers with average starting salaries of $44,000 a year—$11,000 over the current average regional salary. This is a $2.8 million direct increase and a $14 million indirect increase to the local economy. The personal and community impact provides sustainable, strong middle class salaries to strengthen our economy and community for years to come.

“Maverick Boat Group is committed to the Treasure Coast and will be hiring a significant number of people in the next few years. Because of the grant we’ll be able to pull from a pool of trained applicants and that will help us be competitive with builders from other states who take robust advantage of similar programs. This will help us grow our business,” added Scott Deal, President of Maverick Boat Group.

New offerings in the IRSC Aviation and Marine Training Program will launch quick response clock-hour and degree tracks in both sectors to address all levels of skills needed. The program will be patterned after IRSC trade programs in other fields, which boast 90% graduation and placement rates. This sustainable approach is strengthened by quick response and small class sizes leading to high success rates.

Reinforcing the grant proposal is the strong collaboration between IRSC, industry and community partners. Many of these partners provided letters of support for the Aviation and Marine Training Grant. Key partnerships include: The St. Lucie Economic Development Council; the Martin County Business Development Board; Indian River County Economic Development; CareerSource Research Coast; the Small Business Development Center at IRSC; the Treasure Coast Manufacturing Association; St. Lucie County; Maverick Boat Group; Pursuit Boats; Paradigm Precision; Triumph Aerostructures -Vought Aircraft Division; Piper Aircraft; Seatorque; Advanced Manufacturing and Tooling; Phoenix Metals; and Jet Craft Aerostructures.

IRSC has been a workforce training leader in high-tech industrial training on the Treasure Coast for decades. In conjunction with programs such as the new Aviation and Marine Training Program, the planned construction of the Treasure Coast Advanced Manufacturing Center will additionally increase instructional space, technology and lab space to expand the workforce and create a continuous flow of skilled workers in the region. The $23.3 million facility has a remaining funding need of $14.8 million to expand capacity and produce more graduates in industrial fields.

IRSC Aviation and Marine Training fast-track programs are planned to launch in 2019 with degree programs planned to start in the next academic year. For more information, email info@irsc.edu or call 866-792-4772.

Martin Youth LEADERship’s “Crew 22”

Leaps and Bound to Success!

Out2News.com

On October 16, thirty eight members of Martin Youth LEADERship Class 22 participated in C.O.P.E Day, a Challenging, Outdoor Personal Experience ropes course at Tanah Keeta Scout Reservation in southern Martin County.

C.O.P.E. is a youth development and leadership activity presented by volunteers and staff of Gulf Stream Council Learning for Life. Facilitators included COPE Day chairman Alec Connolly of the Gulf Stream Council Boy Scouts of America; Evan Reif, also with the Boy Scouts, Patrick Murray of Martin County Schools Extended Day program, Dennis McCarthy, Laura Haase of the Children’s Services Council; Christina Wilson volunteer Scouting instructor, and Alexander Connolly of Indian River State College.

C.O.P.E. offered the class a series of outdoor challenges, beginning with basic group initiative games and progressing to more complicated low-course and high-course activities. The course is designed to help participants reinforce self-confidence and build leadership skills.

Some C.O.P.E. events involved group effort, whereas others focused on individual skills and agility. Participants climb, swing, balance, jump, and rappel all while devising solutions to a variety of problems. The program emphasized eight major goals: communication, planning, trust, teamwork, leadership, decision-making, problem-solving, and self-esteem. While participation was completely voluntary, most students found that they could accomplish much more than they initially thought possible.

The highlight for most of the members of Class 22 was the 35-foot high Confidence Pole. Wearing climbing harnesses attached to safety lines held by their peers on the ground, participants scaled the pole to reach a small platform at the top. Once at the top of the pole, students were challenged to take a “leap of faith” by jumping from the pole and touching a ball suspended out in from of them. C.O.P.E. Day gave the participants the opportunity to experience successes that come from taking calculated risks while applying basic leadership skills.

The Martin Youth LEADERship program was established and is partially funded by LEADERship Martin County Alumni, a program of the Stuart Martin Chamber of Commerce. For more information on MYL please see http://www.leadershipmcalumni.com/youth or contact Jeanne Dunn at martinyouthleadership@gmail.com to learn how your student can apply or how you or your business can become involved with this pivotal program.

Martin Youth LEADERship’s “Crew 22”

Leaps and Bound to Success!

Out2News.com

On October 16, thirty eight members of Martin Youth LEADERship Class 22 participated in C.O.P.E Day, a Challenging, Outdoor Personal Experience ropes course at Tanah Keeta Scout Reservation in southern Martin County.

C.O.P.E. is a youth development and leadership activity presented by volunteers and staff of Gulf Stream Council Learning for Life. Facilitators included COPE Day chairman Alec Connolly of the Gulf Stream Council Boy Scouts of America; Evan Reif, also with the Boy Scouts, Patrick Murray of Martin County Schools Extended Day program, Dennis McCarthy, Laura Haase of the Children’s Services Council; Christina Wilson volunteer Scouting instructor, and Alexander Connolly of Indian River State College.

C.O.P.E. offered the class a series of outdoor challenges, beginning with basic group initiative games and progressing to more complicated low-course and high-course activities. The course is designed to help participants reinforce self-confidence and build leadership skills.

Some C.O.P.E. events involved group effort, whereas others focused on individual skills and agility. Participants climb, swing, balance, jump, and rappel all while devising solutions to a variety of problems. The program emphasized eight major goals: communication, planning, trust, teamwork, leadership, decision-making, problem-solving, and self-esteem. While participation was completely voluntary, most students found that they could accomplish much more than they initially thought possible.

The highlight for most of the members of Class 22 was the 35-foot high Confidence Pole. Wearing climbing harnesses attached to safety lines held by their peers on the ground, participants scaled the pole to reach a small platform at the top. Once at the top of the pole, students were challenged to take a “leap of faith” by jumping from the pole and touching a ball suspended out in from of them. C.O.P.E.

Participants climb, swing, balance, jump, and rappel all while devising solutions to a variety of problems. The program emphasized eight major goals: communication, planning, trust, teamwork, leadership, decision-making, problem-solving, and self-esteem. While participation was completely voluntary, most students found that they could accomplish much more than they initially thought possible.

The highlight for most of the members of Class 22 was the 35-foot high Confidence Pole. Wearing climbing harnesses attached to safety lines held by their peers on the ground, participants scaled the pole to reach a small platform at the top. Once at the top of the pole, students were challenged to take a “leap of faith” by jumping from the pole and touching a ball suspended out in from of them. C.O.P.E. Day gave the participants the opportunity to experience successes that come from taking calculated risks while applying basic leadership skills.

The Martin Youth LEADERship program was established and is partially funded by LEADERship Martin County Alumni, a program of the Stuart Martin Chamber of Commerce.

David W. Hunter is a retired U.S. Diplomat, who served in South Korea, India, Ukraine, Pakistan and Spain. He served at the U.S. Embassy in Seoul, S. Korea, among many other assignments. Hunter holds an M.Phil. Degree in International Relations from the London School of Economics (LSE), and speaks Russian, Spanish and some Korean. He will discuss our options in dealing with North Korea.
January 10, 2019 “The Importance of the National Security Council”
The National Security Council (NSC) has been and should continue to be one of the most important elements of government. It was established in 1947 to ensure that important decisions are based on an objective evaluation of all the relevant options and that the President’s decisions are effectively implemented. The NSC, though, cannot ensure these things if key personnel do not act as honest brokers or if the decision-making process is short-circuited and the options are not thoroughly vetted. Dr. James F. Miskel was a Director for Defense Policy and Arms Control at the NSC during two administrations. He also served as a Professor of National Security Affairs at the US Naval War College where he remains an adjunct professor.
February 7, 2019 “Tales from the Trenches: Ethical Dilemmas Delivering Cancer Care in Sub-Saharan Africa”
Attempting to bring medical care to the developing world can be a vast challenge. From easily anticipated technical hurdles to the surprising economic, social, and political ones; lofty aspirations are often dashed by revelations in the field. Cultural differences can confound the best of intentions, and humility is the key to success. Dr. Aron Rose will discuss some of the great frustrations and rewards he’s experienced attempting to doctor abroad over three decades. Dr. Rose serves as Chair of the Bioethics Committee for the White House’s Sub-Saharan Africa Cancer Care Initiative.
March 14, 2019 “How the World’s Superpower Bungles Foreign Policy”
Hear Ambassador Doug McElhaney reflect on how the disappearance of a bipartisan U.S. foreign policy has brought the worst of interparty politics to the fore. Through ten administrations, and assignments at NATO, Paris, Rome, Cairo, and Sarajevo, he personally saw how domestic politics and ideologically driven foreign policymakers team up to drive an often faulty policy process. A 34-year veteran of the State Department, he will suggest ways to formulate foreign policy to the benefit of all Americans.
April 11, 2019 “Post 9/11 Military Intelligence Evolution”
(The Amalgamation of National Intelligence Services across the U.S. Government Spectrum and their impact on the common ground warrior.)
Colonel Ken Brandel will speak specifically about some of our country’s growing pains with regard to intelligence, and how we have evolved into an amalgamated and cohesive military force. With 38 years of experience ranging from a Cold War enlisted Infantryman, to a Senior Intelligence Officer, his talk will capture the struggles, follies, obstacles and progress for the continuous evolution of Intelligence in the hands of the ground combatant. Colonel Brandel is a graduate of Western Illinois University with a B.S. degree in Political Science, and a Master of Military Science from the Marine Corps Command and General Staff College in Quantico, Virginia.

A-Rated Clark Advanced Learning Center Celebrates 15 Years

Out2News.com

In Photo: Clark Advanced Learning Center students celebrate at their 2018 Commencement exercises May 26. The Clark begins its 15th year Monday, August 13.

When students and faculty return to school at Clark Advanced Learning Center (Clark) on August 13, they have good cause for enthusiasm. Clark, a public charter high school on the Chastain Campus of Indian River State College and partner with the Martin County School District, received an “A” rating by the Florida Department of Education, a distinction it has earned for 10 consecutive years.

The ranking, based on the release of school grades, means Clark is among the top 20 high schools in all of the state, and the highest achieving A-rated high school on the Treasure Coast having earned 86% of the available points as part of the Florida Department of Education High School Grades Model. This announcement comes after Clark was named to the U.S. News and World Report Best High School list and just before the high school opens its doors for its 15th year of service to Martin County students and their families.

“At Indian River State College, student success is the number one priority. This commitment extends to students attending Clark Advanced Learning Center. Exceptional student performance is the result of outstanding teaching, a supportive learning environment, and the persistence of our students who intensely focus on their academic goals,” shares Debra Kohuth, Executive Director at Clark.

Established in 2004, Clark opened its doors with 191 high school students in grades 11 through 12. The school was expanded in 2008 to include 10th graders with enrollment surpassing 200. Clark starts the 2018—19 academic year Monday, August 13, with 250 students.

Initial concepts for Clark were modeled from the new-at-the-time “tech prep” initiative, along with the desire to connect technology to how students learn. Other foundational ideas continuing today include instilling good moral character, employability skills, and developing the soft skills that students need in the working environment. Especially noteworthy is the class in Personal and Career Development (SLS 1421). Created in conjunction with IRSC and community business partners, this class dovetails with an

internship and gives students college credit as they invest 60 hours of hands-on training at a local business exploring a career in which they have a genuine interest.

The unique design of the high school is also key to the Clark concept. Classrooms are built around a central area called the Knowledge Room—every class opens into this multi-use room—purposed for activities that range from small group work to special presentations to immersive collaborative projects.

Kohuth shares how concepts from the formation of Clark still support student success today. “The philosophical beliefs at Clark are that you educate the whole child and not just the academic side. These beliefs are coupled with supportive caring attitudes that encourage students to reach their highest potential. We look forward to continuing to develop and build on these traditions as we start our 15th year.”

The Academy Orchestra
Featuring Lindsay Garrison

Out2News.com

Stuart — What is classical music? Music that expresses life, truth, beauty, reveals facets of the human condition, inspires emotional responses, and continues to be relevant by becoming part of the history of ideas is classic or “classical” music. In a sense, its persistent relevance makes it quite contemporary.

What better way to tell the story of the orchestra than to invite back many of our prestigious alumni in a performance by the Academy Orchestra, the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony’s own mentoring orchestra? Conducted by Thomas Servinsky, this very special concert features award-winning pianist extraordinaire, Lindsay Garritson, who will join the group performing Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.

The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony provides challenging experiences in orchestral and individual performance for student musicians to broaden technical skills and artistic expression, to instill professionalism, and to enhance enjoyment of their musical talents individually and for their audiences.

Members of the orchestra may choose to compete in the annual Concerto Competition. The winner of this competition has the privilege of performing his or her piece with the orchestra during the spring concert season.

Each year the orchestra awards scholarships and grants to several of its young musicians. The scholarships are used by orchestra members to continue music education during a summer music program, to enter a college level musical curriculum in the fall, to obtain private lessons from professionals, or to assist in the purchase of musical instruments.

During its 27-year history, the orchestra alumni have been selected for highly-competitive auditions to attend major conservatories and university programs. Students often opt to continue their music studies in college, in addition to other academic majors.

The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony is an all-volunteer, non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization and is composed of the most talented student musicians from Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin and northern Palm Beach counties. The conductors of the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony are Dr. John Enyart, Ben Enyart and Thomas Servinsky.

The Academy Orchestra
Featuring Lindsay Garrison

Out2News.com

Stuart — What is classical music? Music that expresses life, truth, beauty, reveals facets of the human condition, inspires emotional responses, and continues to be relevant by becoming part of the history of ideas is classic or “classical” music. In a sense, its persistent relevance makes it quite contemporary.

What better way to tell the story of the orchestra than to invite back many of our prestigious alumni in a performance by the Academy Orchestra, the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony’s own mentoring orchestra? Conducted by Thomas Servinsky, this very special concert features award-winning pianist extraordinaire, Lindsay Garritson, who will join the group performing Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.

The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony provides challenging experiences in orchestral and individual performance for student musicians to broaden technical skills and artistic expression, to instill professionalism, and to enhance enjoyment of their musical talents individually and for their audiences.

Members of the orchestra may choose to compete in the annual Concerto Competition. The winner of this competition has the privilege of performing his or her piece with the orchestra during the spring concert season.

Each year the orchestra awards scholarships and grants to several of its young musicians. The scholarships are used by orchestra members to continue music education during a summer music program, to enter a college level musical curriculum in the fall, to obtain private lessons from professionals, or to assist in the purchase of musical instruments.

During its 27-year history, the orchestra alumni have been selected for highly-competitive auditions to attend major conservatories and university programs. Students often opt to continue their music studies in college, in addition to other academic majors.

The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony is an all-volunteer, non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization and is composed of the most talented student musicians from Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin and northern Palm Beach counties. The conductors of the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony are Dr. John Enyart, Ben Enyart and Thomas Servinsky. The orchestra is funded by performance proceeds, orchestra membership fees and private and corporate support.

The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony kicks off its 30th Anniversary concert season on Monday evenings beginning in November, celebrating three decades of music education and orchestral training for hundreds of young musicians in the Treasure Coast community.

MEMORABLE SOLOS, the theme for the November concert series, includes masterworks that have solos so finely crafted that they become defining signatures of these pieces. The program includes Rossini’s William Tell Overture, Mendelssohn’s Fingal’s Cave, Saint Saen’s Danse Macabre, movements from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite, Rimsky-Korsakov’s Capriccio Espagnole, and the Comedian’s Gallop by Kabalevsky. Conducting the three concerts in November are John Enyart, Ph.D., founder of the Treasure Coast Symphony in 1987, Thomas Servinsky, founder of Academy Orchestra in 2010, and Benjamin Enyart.

The concert schedule for Fall includes performances at the Waxlax Center for Performing Arts at St. Edward’s Upper School on Monday, November 6th in Vero Beach, at The Lyric Theatre in downtown Stuart on November 13th, and the Eissey Campus Theatre in Palm Beach Gardens on November 20th. All concerts begin at 7:00 PM.

The Lyric Theatre tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students through the box office with special pricing available in advance for groups of 10 or more.

MUSIC, ART INSPIRE PICTURES AT AN EXHIBITION
TREASURE COAST YOUTH SYMPHONY’S SPRING CONCERT

http://out2martincounty.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2016/10/17-Apr-TCYS-Art-resize-19.jpg

Stuart — The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony’s spring program set focus on major orchestral compositions directly inspired by individual visual artworks and art forms. Taking heed of the inspirational flow between visual arts and music this performance explores the personal reactions of the featured composers to artistic expressions of others. Their music became the “reveal” of what they see, hear, or feel.

Concerts are scheduled at three venues, which include the Eissey Campus Theatre in Palm Beach Gardens, the Lyric Theatre in Stuart last evening, and the Church of the Good Shepherd in Tequesta on Monday, April 24th. Final concert begins at 7PM.  Tickets for the concert at the Church of the Good Shepherd may be purchased by calling (561) 746 4674.

The featured composers, Debussy, Respighi, and Mussorgsky provide tender emotional and intellectual inspiration to their audiences through their classic works, Fetes, Trittico Botticelliano, and Pictures At An Exhibition, respectively. Also included is a performance of Haydn’s Cello Concerto by our 2017 Concerto Competition winner, cellist Erick Lora.

Music conductors for the evening are Dr. John Enyart, Thomas Servinsky and Benjamin Enyart. The orchestra includes exceptionally talented young musicians from Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River, and Palm Beach counties.

Educating to preserve, create, and celebrate our musical heritage, the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony continues to serve our community as one of its finest musical arts organizations for young musicians and orchestra audiences since 1987. The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony is a non-profit, 501(c) (3) organization.

Additional information on the youth symphony is available on the youth symphony’s website at http://www.treasurecoastyouthsymphony.com.

S.P.A.M. Robotics Prepares for World Championships

http://out2martincounty.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2016/10/17-Apr-SPAM-group-shot-resize-1.jpg

STUART—S.P.A.M. Robotics, the local high school FIRST Robotics team, is preparing to compete at the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) FIRST Championships to be held April 19-22 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, TX.

Fresh off their victories at the FRC Orlando Regional at University of Central Florida on March 9-11 and the FRC Rocket City Regional in Huntsville, AL on March 23-24, the team of 74 high school students and their teachers, coaches and mentors are making final preparations for Championships.

This year’s challenge, called FIRST STEAMWORKSSM, surrounds a theme where two adventure clubs from an era in which technology relied on steam power prepare their airships for the ultimate long distance race. Each three-team alliance scores points in three ways: by collecting fuel, represented by small yellow balls, and scoring them in a low or high goal in a boiler; by retrieving and delivering gears to their airship in order to start their rotors; and by boarding the airship by climbing a rope. The alliance with the highest score wins the match.

At their season Kickoff in January, S.P.A.M. watched a worldwide reveal where teams were shown the FIRST STEAMWORKS game field and challenge details for the first time, and received a Kit of Parts made up of motors, batteries, control system components, construction materials, and a mix of additional automation components – with limited instructions. Working with adult Mentors, students have six weeks to design, build, program, and test their robots to meet the season’s engineering challenge.

“The time and resource constraints FIRST implements really challenge us to work together and collaborate on a highly professional level,” said Shantanu Jakhete, S.P.A.M. Vice-Captain and Pit Crew leader. “In fact, you could compare S.P.A.M. to a mix between an established and organized engineering company and an entrepreneurial start-up because of our unique combination of proven designs and crazy new ideas. As a result, our technical teams have the most talented, creative and best problem-solving students you will find in Martin County. It’s very motivating to work alongside a team that is constantly pushing the boundaries of our robot performance.”

S.P.A.M. was recognized with judges’ awards at each of their regional competitions. At the FRC Orlando Regional, the judges presented the team with the Industrial Design Award sponsored by General Motors. This award celebrates form and function in an efficiently designed machine that effectively addresses the game challenge. At the FRC Rocket City Regional, the team was awarded the Engineering Inspiration Award which celebrates outstanding success in advancing respect and appreciation for engineering within a team’s community. This coveted award comes with an added benefit where NASA sponsors the $5,000 registration fee at the 2017 FIRST Championship.

“It’s been an exciting season so far but there’s nothing like the world championships,” said Tyler Woods, team Captain and S.P.A.M.’s lead robot driver for the second year. “To win a regional is an achievement in itself. But every team steps up their game at Championships. As the driver, I depend on everyone to bring their A game. I need our scouting team gathering data on the other robots. I need a coach and the rest of the drive team on the field executing our game plan. I need a pit crew back in the pits ready to fix any mechanical issues or make code adjustments. It’s such a team effort. It’s exciting to see it all come together.”

S.P.A.M., which stands for Speed, Power & Maneuverability (www.spamrobotics.com), is made up of high school students from Jensen Beach High School, Martin County High School, South Fork High School, Clark Advanced Learning Center and home schools. This year the team is celebrating 20 years of building robots while encouraging the next generation of science, technology and engineering leaders.

FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, www.firstinspires.org ) was founded in 1989 by accomplished inventor Dean Kamen to inspire an appreciation of science and technology in young people. Based in Manchester, N.H., FIRST designs accessible, innovative programs to build self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills while motivating young people to pursue opportunities in science, technology, and engineering.

***Book Review***

Don’t Be That KID!

http://out2martincounty.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2016/12/17-Apr-Dont-e-that-kid-cover.jpg

 

“Lois McGuire has created an engaging way through rhymes for elementary-age children to talk about and then address positive character behaviors. I purchased a Don’t Be That KID! At School book for each of my grandchildren and a resource guide for their parents.” Bill P., Grandfather of 5

“The Don’t Be That KID! At School Resource Guide provides my teachers with a year-long plan that supports their students in engaging in positive behaviors and social interactions. Both the book and the resource guide are invaluable tools to help our students feel confident and our classrooms feel secure.” Lauren B., Principal.

These are just two testimonials concerning Lois McGuire’s new character education books: Don’t Be That KID! At School and the Don’t Be That KID! At School Resource Guide. Dr. McGuire feels that building positive character values is as important as teaching core subject areas. She says, “What good is being an ‘A’ student if you aren’t an ‘A’ person? Parents and teachers need to work together to infuse the key character education principles into their children’s daily lives. Make no mistake about it, character in not just innate – it can be taught and learned which is why I wrote Don’t Be That KID! At School.”

Don’t Be That KID! At School is about a little goat who misbehaves at school but ultimately learns his lesson. Each scene provides an opportunity to discuss character building values, such as honesty, consideration, responsibility and respect. The “Don’t Be That KID!

Local Cellist Performs Winning Concerto
For The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony

Out2News.com

Little did Erick Lora and his family realize when their 10 year old son began playing the cello, that it would lead him into a broader music career, joining the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony and being selected as its 2017 Concerto Competition winner for the symphony’s April concerts.

Lora has been with the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony since 2014 and was selected to perform with the Academy Orchestra, the mentoring orchestra for the Youth Symphony. He won first place in the Florida Association of Christian Colleges & Schools (FACCS) state competition for his string solo several times and was chosen to perform on National Public Radio’s Young Musician Spotlight, hosted by public radio station WQCS / 88.9 FM. The young cellist also performs regularly with the Indian River Pops Orchestra.

The three concerts featuring the music of Modest Mussorgsky and his Pictures At An Exhibition will be available on the Treasure Coast and Palm Beach County. They include performances at the Eissey Campus Theatre in Palm Beach Gardens on April 10th, the Lyric Theatre on April 17th in Stuart and on April 24th at the Church of the Good Shepherd in Tequesta. All shows are at 7 p.m. Tickets are available through each Box Office venue.

Now at 17 years old, Erick Lora will be performing in the three concerts, plus presenting his award-winning Concerto Competition selection, Haydn’s Cello Concerto. Other music selections will include Debussy’s Fetes from The Three Nocturnes, Respighi’s Trittico Botticelliano and Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, the theme of the evening concerts.

Working with the students on their music are Conductors Dr. John Enyart, founder of the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony, Tom Servinsky, and Benjamin Enyart. The musicians represent Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Palm Beach counties. Additional information from the Youth Symphony is available on its website at http://www.treasurecoastyouthsymphony.com or by contacting the office directly at
