JCCC professor, author discusses role of rivers in Progressive Era

“Rivers, for all their power to position cities and to transport goods, may possess another power: serving the social good.

Patrick Dobson, adjunct professor of history, will examine the role of rivers during the Progressive Era (from 1880 to 1920) during a presentation at 11 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 27, in the Craig Community Auditorium (GEB 233) at Johnson County Community College.

Admission is free, and the public is invited to attend. Those with an interest in history, sustainability or the politics of natural resources are especially encouraged to attend; no prior registration is necessary.

The audience will be introduced to three men with varying conceptions of a river’s ultimate purpose. They are:
  • Author John Gneisenau Neihardt
  • Irrigation advocate William Ellsworth Smythe
  • Nevada politician Francis Griffith Newlands.
The presentation is sponsored by the Kansas Studies Institute (KSI), located at JCCC. The institute’s goal is to provide engaging lectures and activities that highlight the people, places and history of Kansas.

For more information, contact James Leiker, director of the KSI.”

Welcome to JCCC! Student welcome desk gets new name,
adds second location in Carlsen Center

This was supposed to be a comic, but a cameo appearance on the episode decided to cut to the chase
A Sight for Sore Eyes by dm29 on deviantART
“The student activities and information desk has officially been re-named the student welcome desk, and a second welcome desk has been added near the college box office in the Carlsen Center.

The student welcome desk in the Student Center will continue to print student IDs and schedules, serve as a drop-off site for mail, sell tickets and bus passes, and provide campus information. Later this semester, they’ll add $5 tickets to Performing Arts Series shows to the services offered.

The second location was prompted by the need to engage students who might never venture to the Student Center and Commons building on the west side of campus where most student life activities are housed.

Services provided in the Carlsen Center will include answering general questions about JCCC, providing directions and maps and printing course schedules. Ticket sales and student IDs will not be handled at that location.

The Carlsen Center welcome desk is a partnership of all the student life programs, including student activities, student engagement and the Center for Student Involvement. A group of 12 student activities ambassadors staff the student welcome desk. Staffers for the Carlsen Center location will be drawn from that group, as well as from student engagement ambassadors and from the Center for Student Involvement, creating a pool of 24 students who will staff the Carlsen Center desk.”

Aikens will talk in the Carlsen Center’s Polsky Theatre about his days as a star player and his struggle with substance abuse. The event is free and open to the public. Afterward, Aikens will be signing autographs on his book ‘Safe at Home,’ by Gregory Jordan, which will be available for purchase.

Aikens is a former Major League Baseball first baseman who played with the Kansas City Royals in the early 1980s. After his release from prison in 2008, he apologized to fans for the errors of his ways and began speaking to young players about the importance of making good choices. In 2001, the Royals invited him back as a minor league hitting coach.


Aikens’ appearance is supported by the JCCC Foundation and the Nell Mitchell Lecture Series. It is arranged by the Council Addressing Substance Abuse Issues, a campus wide committee that coordinates services for those who seek help.

“The Johnson County Department of Health and Environment is seeing a sharp increase in influenza cases in the county.

Take these simple actions to slow the spread of flu in schools.
  • Get your flu shot if you haven’t already done so.
  • Avoid close contact with sick people.
  • If you or your child get sick with flu-like illness, stay home for at least 24 hours after the fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities. The fever should be gone without the use of fever-reducing medicine.
  • While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.

“Learn the basics of making fresh mozzarella in a hands-on class from Chef Jasper Mirabile of Jasper’s Ristorante and Marco Polo Italian Market. The class will be from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 11, in the Wysong Family Culinary Theatre of the Hospitality and Culinary Academy. Cost to attend is $25; register here.

In this class, Mirabile will first talk you through the cheese making process and the history of fresh mozzarella cheese in Italy. Then the class will move into the kitchens, breaking into groups and learning how to make fresh ‘mozza’ with Mirabile’s careful instruction.

As a bonus, Mirabile will prepare a pasta dish with fresh mozzarella along with a fresh Ricotta Tart made from the ‘re-cooked whey’ of the mozzarella cheese to sample to get your creative culinary juices flowing on the many uses of this cheese. You will take home a ball of fresh mozzarella that you pulled yourself.

Mirabile’s easy do-it-yourself Mozzarella Kits and autographed cookbooks will be available for sale after the class. All proceeds will go to JCCC’s Hospitality Management Scholarship.”

My darlin’ Darlin’ FREEZE!

Zwei Jahre sind seit meinem Unfall vergangen, at which time my mother encouraged to me to see myself in a car like the rented Dodge Charger, so Impact Blue has in some ways become realization of that dream. Be not deceived, because I have had nicknames for each previous car of my driving pleasure.
Dodge Diplomat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
“The Dodge Diplomat is an American mid-size car made from 1977 to 1989. It is essentially identical to the Chrysler- and Plymouth-branded versions of Chrysler’s M-body cars, including the Chrysler LeBaron and New Yorker Fifth Avenue and the Plymouth Gran Fury in the U.S. market and the Plymouth …”
My family bought a 1982 Diplomat in December, 1996. He was called Old Blue. I next drove a 1984 Buick Skyhawk, and called her Cinnamon, which played off Cadillac Cimarron, another gilded Chevrolet Cavalier of the time.
My two-tone tan 1984 Buick Skyhawk sedan. Purchased in January 2000, the car had working A/C in the summer of 2003, and a CD player installed the day after Thanksgiving, 2003. The dent in the front fender was worked out before it was accepted as a $2000 trade by Van Chevrolet in June, 2005. Gone to parts unknown, literally and figuratively.
Finally, I am brought to my darling darling, 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier. Because she is titled with my father, I neither could, nor did, trade her for Impact Blue, yet I continue to need to sell her by next Tuesday. I drove her today to the Target in Mission, Kansas.

He’s gettin’ his own Show

Closed between Monday, December 22, 2013, and Wednesday, January 1, 2014, Johnson County Community College will reopen tomorrow. Monday, in my neighborhood, is when trash is collected, so I set my alarm for six in the morning in an attempt to restore the damage to my circadian rhythms. While I was awake for more daylight than I had for eight days, I did not go to bed until four this morning. Oh, well.

While our friend Ra was hosting a party north of the river, Aaron and I visited a mutual friend, and watched Riddick, then Donnie Darko.
We watched the last half hour before the ball drop; Melissa Etheridge sang one of her hits, and followed with “Imagine,” where she shot it four times, and dragged it through a swamp, and hanged it up, and put its head on a pike.
Denton had decided against Ra’s party, so he, Beasley, and I watched The Nude Bombno, it was neither Showgirls, nor Striptease, nor Eyes Wide Shut — just the adaptation of Get Smart to the big screen.
