2010 Student vs. Staff Basketball Game, 61-58 OT

The first ever Student vs. Staff basketball game took place last Friday, Dec. 10 at the National Guard Armory. Ninety spectators were on hand to witness the epic battle between the young energetic students and the older experienced staff, and they were not disappointed.

The students battled to a slim three point lead at 21-18 in the first half. The staff, however, battled back to take a 39-42 lead at the end of the third quarter. That left everyone on the edge of their seats for the fourth and final quarter, which ended in a 49-49 tie.

According to NFHS (National Federation High School) rules an overtime period goes for four minutes. This time the staff finally ran out of gas, losing in a valiant effort 61-58.

December 15 is the last day to contribute to the Combined Fund Drive!

A message from CFD Chair, Ivan Gorne.

Remember! Wednesday, December 15 is the last day to contribute for the 2010 Combined Fund Drive. Do keep in mind that a one-time check can be contributed at this time, if that is a preference, as opposed to an on-going payroll deduction. Thanks to all who have maintained, increased or initiated a payroll deduction program for the next year as well as those who have made a one-time contribution. You have truly made a difference.

 

Bates childcare seeking hats, gloves and socks

The Bates childcare and ECEAP centers are currently collecting children sized hats, gloves/mittens and socks for those families that need a little extra help.  Many children in the centers do not have these very basic items.

Report flood damage to Pierce County at 866.798.6363

The Pierce County Emergency Operations Center is collecting damage information from homeowners and business owners affected by this weekend’s flooding. Residents and business owners in Pierce County that suffered damage should call the Department of Emergency Management at 866.798.6363 (toll free).

Callers should have the following information available:
• Name and address of affected property
• Type of insurance (homeowners)
• A description of damage, even if uninsured
• A personal estimate of uninsured losses
• Estimates of the fair market value of the damaged home or business. It is not necessary at this point for property owners to have a contractor’s estimate.

The findings from this assessment will be used by the Governor to request a possible disaster declaration and federal disaster assistance from the President. This process could take up to couple of weeks or more. Federal disaster assistance, if and when it becomes available, only covers uninsured losses.

Among the immediate steps that individuals and families impacted by the floods should take, include:
• Call your insurance agent to check on your coverage.
• Keep detailed records of all clean-up and repair costs, including photographs.
• When the time comes to make repairs, be aware of local permit requirements and do a thorough check of potential contractors

Library Corner: Week of Dec. 13

Inspiration can be found in unexpected places sometimes. A faculty member found inspiration at Alcatraz and passed it on with this message:





I thought of you when I was visiting Alcatraz Island off San Francisco this summer. It may seem odd, but let me explain. The tour was filled with stories of the incredible efforts some men went through to escape Alcatraz, only to die or be captured and brought back.


When I entered the prison library, I touched one of the worn wooden shelves. This is going to sound corny, but it's almost as if I heard someone say, "This is how you escaped Alcatraz. Right here in this room."




I thought of you all and decided to take a picture of the library and of the sign posted on the wall. I thought you might like being reminded how important your job is as keepers of the flame, even in a place like Alcatraz, where all other freedoms were taken away, but freedom of thought and imagination remained and flourished. I thought it quite interesting that the prisoners preferred "serious reading" like Kant and other philosophers to light dime-store novels! Maybe it says something about the essential human condition ... what happens when everything is taken away from us?


The library staff say thank you to the faculty member for sharing the story with them and allowing it to be shared with others.
