ASTRONOMY PICTURE OF THE DAY

Arp 194: Merging Galaxy Group

Out2News.com
Image Credit: NASA, ESA, Hubble; Processing & License: Judy Schmidt

Explanation: Why are stars forming in the bridge between these colliding galaxies? Usually when galaxies crash, star formation is confined to galaxy disks or tidal tails. In Arp 194, though, there are bright knots of young stars right in a connecting bridge. Analyses of images and data including the featured image of Arp 194 from Hubble, as well as computer simulations of the interaction, indicate that the bottom galaxy passed right through the top galaxy within the past 100 million years. The result has left a stream of gas that is now falling toward the bottom galaxy. Astronomers hypothesize that stars form in this bridge because of the recent fading of turbulence after the rapid collision. In about a billion years, the galaxies — including a smaller galaxy superposed on the upper galaxy (see it?) — will all merge into one larger galaxy.

Martin Youth LEADERship: Students Eat, Exercise and Focus on Health

Out2News.com

Stuart-Students of this year’s Martin Youth LEADERship Program held their sixth monthly session of the school year: HEALTH AND WELLNESS DAY, Health and Wellness Day Program Chairperson, Dawn Cabrera (ALTOSS Coordinator at Tykes and Teens), kicked-off the program by welcoming Tykes and Teens’ Agnieszka Marshall, who provided the class with an interactive overview of mental and emotional fitness and dream interpretation.

Marybeth Pena, Nursing Program Specialist with the Martin County Health Department, then supervised the group in food knowledge, food safety, food preparation, and of course, a sampling of the students’ own creations. This hands-on cooking activity demonstrated the direct relationship between what one eats to one’s health and how much more cheaply and healthfully students can create food at home than on the go. Knowledge in hand, students made egg and salsa wraps with side vegetables and fruit infused spritzers.

Students were given the chance to work off those calories with an energizing introduction to basic fitness principles and exercises, supervised by Lewis J. Boglioli, Director of Stuart’s Financial Services Department and self-described fitness aficionado. Mr. Boglioli led the students in some basic exercise principles, allowing them to “earn” their healthy lunch of wraps, fruit salad and green salads.

Students then heard the true story of Eddy, who was raised by both his grandmother and within the foster care system. Eddy gave examples of how one bad choice in life can have such negative consequences, but also challenged and inspired the students to keep trying to move forward and strive for one’s goals, even under overwhelming circumstances, to succeed in life. Certified therapist Janice Meier brought the group full circle by educating students on the importance of resiliency and grit.

To conclude the day, certified yoga instructor Wafa Turk supervised the students with a basic yoga practice, including poses, breathing techniques and the connection between learning how to de-stress from our often hectic pace to find our inner voice. Even those students who claimed they could never “calm their mind”, experienced the benefits of shivasna following the practice.

The Martin Youth LEADERship Program is designed for high school sophomores and juniors in Martin County, is in its 22nd year. The MYL is an opportunity for high school students to develop and enhance their leadership skills. Students must apply through their guidance offices, and a limited number 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 leadership enhancing activities. A diverse class representing various levels of leadership experience is selected annually.

For more information about MYL and how you too, might become a sponsor, donor, event coordinator, advisory board member or obtain a student application for 2019-20, please see the group web site at: http://www.leadershipmcalumni.com/youth_leadership.asp, or contact Jeanne Dunn, Program Coordinator, at MartinYouthLeadership@gmail.com at (772) 486-4695.

Blues Skies Greet Students from Martin Youth LEADERship During Environmental Day

Out2News.com

Blue skies and soft breezes greeted students from Martin Youth LEADERship’s Class 22 on Tuesday, January 21, as they embarked on ENVIRONMENTAL Day. 37 students held their fifth monthly session of the school year at the St. Lucie Locks and at Jonathan Dickinson Park, learning about our local and state environment, its issues and its history.

Environmental Day Program Chair, Jennifer Ferrari, Administrator of Gifts for Florida Community Health Centers, welcomed students to the St. Lucie Locks in Stuart. Ms. Ferrari brought in Mark Perry, Executive Director of Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center, to give the students a brief introduction and history of the waterways of South Florida. Mr. Perry explained how and why the water flow and quality issues exist. He was followed by Casey McKinley, Park Ranger with the St. Lucie Locks. Mr. McKinley gave a walking tour of the lock, teaching the students about its purpose and the role the Army Corps of Engineers holds in maintaining the correct flow and dam levels. Students were then free to peruse the Education Center to view photos and interactive learning tools in order to learn more about the history of locks and dams in Florida.

MYL students were bused to Jonathan Dickinson Park in Hobe Sound, to meet with a variety of professionals from the environmental field. Debbie Fritz Quincy, Executive Director of the Hobe Sound Nature Center, brought not only several staff members, but a number of “residents” of the Center. Among them were owls, snakes, tarantulas, spiders, turtles and other creatures. Each student was given the chance to hold or get up close with the animals, all while learning about the mission of the Center. Carly Batts from the Audubon Society of Martin County, followed up with a brief lecture about her role with Audubon, as well as ways students can become involved while in high school. As a recent college graduate, Ms. Batts connected with the students, doling out key advice on tenacity when pursuing one’s career goals and other dreams. Finally, Rebecca Mott from Inwater Research Group, presented the students with an informative view the research she and Inwater do with sea turtles, particularly those near the intake canals of the St. Lucie Nuclear Power Plant. Inwater captures turtles to study, rehabilitate, tag and release, where they can be tracked for migration and other purposes. The students discussed how they too might become involved in this or similar careers and learned that there are a myriad of volunteer opportunities in the field of Environmental Studies.

Students were invited to participate in a “litter free” lunch contest, the goal being to create as little trash as possible when packing their lunches from home. Students displayed creativity with cloth napkins and sacks, as well as re-usable containers.

The day concluded with a walking tour of one of the trails at Jonathan Dickinson, narrated by Park Ranger Corey Kerkela. Mr. Kerkela reiterated the themes of the day: ways to become involved as a volunteer, pathways to careers in the varied fields of the environment, and ways to practice good environmental stewardship as a student and member of our community.

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 in the program. The current 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 no more than 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.

District Announces 2018-2019 Teachers of the Year

Out2News.com

The Education Foundation of Martin County (EFMC) and the Martin County School District (MCSD) are proud to announce that Jensen Beach High School’s Justin Pigott has been named the District’s 2018-2019 Teacher of the Year.

The winner was announced during the Education Foundation of Martin County’s Teacher of the Year Awards Celebration on Friday, November 9, at the Port St. Lucie Civic Center. The event is presented annually by Audi Stuart and Infiniti Stuart.

Mr. Pigott, an Advanced Placement Calculus teacher, has 16 total years of teaching experience, including nine in the Martin County School District. Beyond his classroom walls, Mr. Pigott serves as a student mentor for Indian River State College’s “Take Stock in Children” scholarship program, regularly assists students with SAT and ACT test preparation before school and during his planning periods, and has served in the past as the sponsor of Jensen Beach High School’s Math Honor Society. In addition, Mr. Pigott is a proud father and former foster parent. He was able to formally adopt his daughter in 2013 and happily serves as a “Girl Scout Dad”, helping with cookie sales and camping trips.

Mr. Pigott’s primary goal as an educator is to ensure his classroom is always a positive environment where each student feels accepted, heard and supported. “I strive to make each class feel like a functioning family,” he shares. “Just as families do not all look the same; the relationships in each of my classes are distinctive. I allow elements such as time of day, individual personality, previous friendships, hobbies, sports and clubs to shape the landscape of my classes. Each class has a unique energy and vibe, like a family.”

The “family vibe” Mr. Pigott fosters in his classroom begins prior to the first day of school each year, where he takes on the challenge of memorizing the names of the more than 90 students on his class roster. On the first day of school, students stare in awe as he walks around the room calling each of them by name. “My students know from the first day that I care about them and that this class is a wonderful learning environment,” he shares. “The students trust in my teaching…and begin to believe they can achieve their own goals as well.”

Superintendent Laurie J. Gaylord was proud to see Mr. Pigott take home this year’s award. “Justin Pigott is an outstanding educator who recognizes that being a great teacher involves so much more than students’ understanding of concepts and standards. He understands that children need someone to truly hear, see and inspire them. These intrinsic qualities are what define Mr. Pigott as a stellar educator, and I am honored to recognize him as the Martin County School District’s 2018-2019 Teacher of the Year.”

“The board members, staff and volunteers of the Education Foundation would like to sincerely congratulate Justin Pigott for winning this year’s Martin County Teacher of the Year award,” said Kelly Buist, president of the EFMC. “Our entire community is fortunate to have Justin and the other hardworking Martin County teachers like him who are dedicated to improving the lives of our young people. We will proudly follow Justin as he represents Martin County in the running for Florida’s Teacher of the Year award.”

“He is the kind of teacher that truly makes a difference in the lives of students,” said Principal Lori Vogel of Jensen Beach High School. “Mr. Pigott always has a positive outlook which overflows into his classroom and our school setting. His students thrive from his positive attitude, which improves their self-esteem and, in turn, improves their academic success.”
Mr. Pigott will now represent the Martin County School District in the competition to become the Florida Department of Education’s Teacher of the Year.
In addition to honoring the District’s 2018-2019 Teacher of the Year; winners were named in the categories of Elementary, Middle, and High School Teachers of the Year:

Arbor Day Celebration, Tree Dedication Held at Martin County High School

Out2News.com

The Garden Club of Stuart donated a key lime tree to Martin County High School in celebration of Arbor Day It’s a tradition that began in 1872, and its purpose and meaning are just as important today. The Martin County School District held an Arbor Day ceremony at Martin County High School on January 18, 2019, with members of local government, chambers of commerce and the Garden Club of Stuart in attendance.

While much of the country celebrates Arbor Day in April, Florida celebrates Arbor Day on the third Friday of January. More than 200 communities participating in tree planting activities that beautify streets, parks, schools, churches and other neighborhood landmarks.

The Garden Club of Stuart generously donated a key lime tree to the students and staff of Martin County High School in honor of Arbor Day. The tree will be cared for by members of the Martin County High School Green Club, under the direction of Club Sponsor Dane Savela. In addition to providing a little bit of shade and adding to the overall beauty of the school’s garden area, the tree will also provide key limes for Culinary Academy students to use as they prepare key lime pies and other delicious meals.

“Please take a moment to admire the key lime tree and take note of its size,” School Board Chair Christia Li Roberts told attendees. “In one short year, you won’t even believe how much it will have grown!”

High Schools Host Constitutional Academic Competitions

Out2News.com

The Martin County School District has once again partnered with the Hobe Sound-based Center for Constitutional Values to bring a hands-on civics lesson to high school students.

The Constitutional Academic Competitions allow local Youth in Government (YIG) students to research a designated constitutional issue and present their arguments in a debate-style format before a sitting judge. Students compete for scholarship funds and the chance to move on to additional levels of competition.

This year’s preliminary, intra-school competitions were held the week of January 14, 2019, at each of the three high schools: Jensen Beach, Martin County and South Fork. Two teams comprised of two YIG students debated a pre-selected constitutional issue before a presiding judge. This year’s question was “Does the U.S. Constitution provide to the states any powers to control immigration?” Both teams were asked to give an opening statement, followed by open dialogue for 30 minutes between team members and the judge. At the conclusion of the debate, teams provided a closing statement and the presiding judge determined the winning team.

The Honorable Darren Steele and William L. Roby of the 19th Judicial Circuit Court presided over competitions at South Fork High School and Jensen Beach High School, while the Honorable Mark W. Klingensmith of the 4th District Court of Appeals presided over the competition at Martin County High School. Both members of the winning team from each school earned a $250 scholarship and the opportunity to advance to the inter-school round of competition, which has been scheduled for April.

Congratulations to this year’s competitors and winners:

Martin Youth LEADERship: Students Learn the Consequences of Breaking the Law During Public Safety Day

Out2News.com

Stuart, FL– On Tuesday, December 11, 35 students from this year’s Martin Youth LEADERship class held their fourth monthly session of the 2018-19 school year, PUBLIC SAFETY DAY.

Students met professionals from the 19th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida, including the Honorable Chief Judge Elizabeth Metzger, Public Defender John Henrik and Chief Prosecutor Nina Denton. Metzger, Henrik and Denton presented an overview of the court system in Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee Counties. Among the topics of discussion were the differences between circuit and county courts, the differences between prison and jail, the types of courts available in the 19th circuit (juvenile, dependency, mental health, Veterans, etc) and the process from arrest through incarceration. Students were also given solid advice in making smart choices during their student years, and how to prepare for the many varied careers in the legal arena.

The students’ morning in court was followed by an on-site visit to the training area for Martin County Fire and Rescue. Students trained side by side with current recruits, experiencing the rigorous physical demands these brave men and women must achieve to become firefighters in Martin County.

The final visit of the day was a behind the scenes tour from the Martin County Sheriff’s Office and Correctional Facility. Students enjoyed a K-9 presentation from Deputies Billy Baker and Ryan Perlman and Sgts. William Weiss and Travis Dykes, while learning how German Shepherds are trained to assist officers in tasks vital to law enforcement. Sheriff William Snyder spoke to the students as future leaders of their communities, encouraging them to never give up, never set goals too low, and build upon their successes one layer at a time.

After lunch, students were given a S.W.A.T. demo from Lt. Reuben Romero and his team: Peter Croft, Jake Sermons and Brian Parker. The team displayed and explained the use of various S.W.A.T. equipment, including why studying math can be an important topic should one wish to learn how to use explosives. Students were then given a tour of the Bearcat used by the MCSO.

The day concluded with a brief tour of the jail, led by Sgt. Syler and Deputy Sanchez. The students learned how inmates are brought to and processed at the MCSO jail and saw firsthand about the complete lack of rights and privacy one should expect if in jail. They also viewed the “restraining chair” and learned how ably it can restrain even the strongest adults for their own safety.

Many thanks go to program chair Robert Bruton and his committee: Trisha Kukuvka and Brad Beckett, who organized the day.

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 in the program. The current 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 no more than 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.

Students were also given solid advice in making smart choices during their student years, and how to prepare for the many varied careers in the legal arena.

The students’ morning in court was followed by an on-site visit to the training area for Martin County Fire and Rescue. Students trained side by side with current recruits, experiencing the rigorous physical demands these brave men and women must achieve to become firefighters in Martin County.

The final visit of the day was a behind the scenes tour from the Martin County Sheriff’s Office and Correctional Facility. Students enjoyed a K-9 presentation from Deputies Billy Baker and Ryan Perlman and Sgts. William Weiss and Travis Dykes, while learning how German Shepherds are trained to assist officers in tasks vital to law enforcement. Sheriff William Snyder spoke to the students as future leaders of their communities, encouraging them to never give up, never set goals too low, and build upon their successes one layer at a time.

After lunch, students were given a S.W.A.T. demo from Lt. Reuben Romero and his team: Peter Croft, Jake Sermons and Brian Parker. The team displayed and explained the use of various S.W.A.T. equipment, including why studying math can be an important topic should one wish to learn how to use explosives. Students were then given a tour of the Bearcat used by the MCSO.

The day concluded with a brief tour of the jail, led by Sgt. Syler and Deputy Sanchez. The students learned how inmates are brought to and processed at the MCSO jail and saw firsthand about the complete lack of rights and privacy one should expect if in jail. They also viewed the “restraining chair” and learned how ably it can restrain even the strongest adults for their own safety.

Many thanks go to program chair Robert Bruton and his committee: Trisha Kukuvka and Brad Beckett, who organized the day.

Martin Youth LEADERship: Students Learn the Consequences of Breaking the Law During Public Safety Day

Out2News.com

Stuart, FL– On Tuesday, December 11, 35 students from this year’s Martin Youth LEADERship class held their fourth monthly session of the 2018-19 school year, PUBLIC SAFETY DAY.

Students met professionals from the 19th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida, including the Honorable Chief Judge Elizabeth Metzger, Public Defender John Henrik and Chief Prosecutor Nina Denton. Metzger, Henrik and Denton presented an overview of the court system in Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee Counties. Among the topics of discussion were the differences between circuit and county courts, the differences between prison and jail, the types of courts available in the 19th circuit (juvenile, dependency, mental health, Veterans, etc) and the process from arrest through incarceration. Students were also given solid advice in making smart choices during their student years, and how to prepare for the many varied careers in the legal arena.

The students’ morning in court was followed by an on-site visit to the training area for Martin County Fire and Rescue. Students trained side by side with current recruits, experiencing the rigorous physical demands these brave men and women must achieve to become firefighters in Martin County.

The final visit of the day was a behind the scenes tour from the Martin County Sheriff’s Office and Correctional Facility. Students enjoyed a K-9 presentation from Deputies Billy Baker and Ryan Perlman and Sgts. William Weiss and Travis Dykes, while learning how German Shepherds are trained to assist officers in tasks vital to law enforcement. Sheriff William Snyder spoke to the students as future leaders of their communities, encouraging them to never give up, never set goals too low, and build upon their successes one layer at a time.

After lunch, students were given a S.W.A.T. demo from Lt. Reuben Romero and his team: Peter Croft, Jake Sermons and Brian Parker. The team displayed and explained the use of various S.W.A.T. equipment, including why studying math can be an important topic should one wish to learn how to use explosives. Students were then given a tour of the Bearcat used by the MCSO.

The day concluded with a brief tour of the jail, led by Sgt. Syler and Deputy Sanchez. The students learned how inmates are brought to and processed at the MCSO jail and saw firsthand about the complete lack of rights and privacy one should expect if in jail. They also viewed the “restraining chair” and learned how ably it can restrain even the strongest adults for their own safety.

Many thanks go to program chair Robert Bruton and his committee: Trisha Kukuvka and Brad Beckett, who organized the day.

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

In Photo: New scholarship recipients Nicholas Sladek, Lisa Tower, Eileen Leo and Robert Harry with Erica Garwood and John Garwood

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.

Out2News.com

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.

Roberts served on the IRSC District Board of Trustees from 2007 to 2012. Upon leaving the Board, he began serving on the IRSC Foundation Board, a position he still holds. In 1992, Roberts was named IRSC Outstanding Alumnus of the Year. Throughout his career, Hal Roberts has shared his expertise and time with Treasure Coast human service and civic organizations. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

***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! At School Resource Guide accompanies the book but can be used independently by teachers and parents to help reinforce desired behaviors and character education principles. Although separated into appropriate activities for grades K-1, 2-3 and 4-5, the Guide can easily be adapted for all ages and abilities.

Learn more about Don’t Be That KID! At School and the Don’t Be That KID! At School Resource Guide by going to the website: dontbethatkid.net Both books can be purchased through the website or through Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble .com.
