8-19-2016 9-37-44 AMFootball is the sport that comes to mind most often when thinking about sports in Alabama. I would bet that most of you could name players on one team or another in high school, college, or professional football.

But, did you know that Alabama has many significant athletes with Olympic ties?

Jesse Owens is probably the best known Olympic athlete from Alabama. Owens was from Lawrence County originally, but moved to Ohio State University for college. In 1936, he ruled the Olympics in Berlin. He won gold medals in the 100-meter dash, the 200-meter dash, the long jump, and 4 x 100-meter relay. That record stood until 1984.

8-19-2016 9-38-00 AM

In 1984, Carl Lewis, from Birmingham, won gold medals in the same Olympic events that Jesse Owens won. Lewis went on to win four consecutive gold medals in the long jump in 1984, 1988, 1992, and 1996, and two consecutive gold medals in the 100-meter dash in 1984 and 1988.

Remember Mia Hamm? Hamm was a popular soccer athlete from the 1990s. Born in Selma, Alabama, Mia (Mariel Margaret Hamm) led her teams to medals in three Olympics. In 1996 at the Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta, in 2000 at the Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia, and in 2004 in Athens, Greece. Mia Hamm retired at age 32 in 2004 with 158 goals and 144 assists in international play.

8-19-2016 9-38-14 AM

The Auburn Swimming and Diving Program is well represented in international competition. Numerous Auburn swimmers have competed in the Olympic Games and 14 have won 32 medals. Kirsty Coventry of Harare, Zimbabwe, is the most decorated Auburn Olympian. She won seven Olympic medals (two gold medals, four silver medals, and one bronze medal) in the 2004 and 2008 Olympic Games. Rowdy Gaines of Florida won three Olympic gold medals in 1984 and was one of the fastest swimmers in the world during his era.

Alabama native Jennifer Kay Chandler (1959- ), from Langdale, won the gold medal for springboard diving in the 1976 Montreal Olympics at the age of 17. She led from the first dive and won by nearly 50 points over silver medalist Krista Kohler of what was then the German Democratic Republic, or East Germany. She also competed in the 1978 World Championships and qualified for the U.S.-boycotted 1980 Olympics but retired soon after.

The information for this article comes from the Encyclopedia of Alabama, a free, online resource on Alabama history, culture, geography, and natural environment. The site offers articles on Alabama’s famous people, historic events, sports, art, literature, industry, government, plant and animal life, agriculture, recreation, and so much more. It is sponsored by the Alabama Humanities Foundation, Auburn University, and the Alabama State Department of Education.

8-19-2016 9-38-23 AM

8-5-2016 11-52-11 AMFor the past two years, the Cook Book Club has met each Monday for lunch. Since that time, we have tested over 150 recipes. The recipes were everything from family favorites to experiments with new flavors and unusual ingredients, and some of the recipes were trial and error. A few were trials of things found on the Internet. Regardless, this was the most fun I have had in several years.

I thought Cook Book Club would be an easy project. It was not. You would think eating good food would be a simple thing. The problem comes from trying to pick the best recipe which contains the newest flavors, and using exotic ingredients. After all, we don’t want the same cookbook that everyone else has published.

8-5-2016 11-52-30 AM

One of our most exotic and versatile finds turns out to be a Mexican turnip called Jicama (pronounced hee-kum-muh). Jicama looks like a dirty potato, and its skin is yellow and papery. The inside is creamy white with a crisp texture like a raw potato or pear. The flavor is sweet and starchy, kind of like apples or raw green beans, and it is usually eaten raw. It can be cut into thin wedges and dipped in salsa, or added to salads, fresh fruit combinations, soups, and other cooked dishes. It was a tasty addition to our offerings.

One of the best recipes I tasted at Cook Book Club was Shrimp with Vanilla Chili Sauce. It was a unique blend of sweet and spicy that made for great flavor. I would never think to add vanilla bean to chili sauce, because I am a little old fashioned and use a traditional mix of carrots, onions, and garlic to season my recipes. According to the cooking shows, this mix of chopped vegetables is called mirepoix (pronounced meer-pwah).

The Cook Book Club also experimented with other combinations. We tasted a pork recipe flavored with marjoram, a leafy, aromatic spice. In addition, we tasted a chocolate cake using zucchini. It was deliciously rich and moist. We used egg roll wrappers to make appetizers as well as main dishes, and we used wonton wrappers to do the same. My favorite was pastrami and cheese with spicy mustard in egg roll wrappers, followed by the Pierogie (potato) wontons.

8-5-2016 11-52-41 AM

There are so many wonderful recipes in the finished product, and we are relieved as well as excited to head to the printers next week. If you would like a copy, you can get one at the Fiddlers’ Convention in October. Look for us in the Arts and Crafts tents. We will be selling cookbooks and tickets to the Song Writers’ Showcase. The Showcase will highlight Phillip White, Brice Long, and Clint Daniels. All of these fellows are country music songwriters and have written for several country stars. You can find out more about the songwriters on our website – www.athens.edu/cll.

Our fall catalog will be out on August 8th. If you don’t get one in the mail, stop by the Center for Lifelong Learning at 121 South Marion Street to pick up one. We are all about growing professionally, learning in your leisure time, and traveling to learn.

NEW! This fall CLL is offering the Bible Studies Certificate Course, Reading Responsibly: A Guide to Biblical Interpretation. Using the book, Reading Responsibly: A Guide to Biblical Interpretation, this series of eight classes will focus on two key areas: methods and ethics of interpretation.

See you in the schoolyard.

7-1-2016 3-03-05 PMSummer does not seem like a good time to learn with the children out of school. But school is not the only way to learn.

This summer, the Center for Lifelong Learning has sponsored several successful camps. Our first camp, Archery Camp, filled quickly and had a waiting list. The kids in that camp learned to shoot arrows and practiced for tournaments.

From Cows to Cotton was almost full as well. We had nine children in that camp. This was a chance for city kids (and farm kids) to get close to animals and crops. The group visited Mrs. Margaret Barnett’s fields where Mr. Darryl Adams was housing some cows. Mrs. Barnett has new born kittens so it was doubly fun to visit and see “farm animals.” We also visited the Tennessee Valley Experimental and Extension Center farm on Mooresville Rd. Mr. Chet Norris explained wheat, corn and cotton crops to us as well as telling us that cows drink a bathtub full of water each day. WOW! At the Farmers Co-op, we picked up some plants to put in our gardens. One student, Raiden, was very excited about his jalapeño pepper. Thanks to Mr. Cooper and Ms Amy, we finished off the camp making home-made butter and ice cream.

7-1-2016 3-04-10 PM

But it is not too late to get into camps. We still have July camps waiting. You can register by phone at 256-233-8260, on the web at www.athens.edu/CLL, or at our offices 121 South Marion Street.

The week of July 11th, we will offer three camps. The first one is Chess Camp for ages 8-12. The game of Chess focuses on strategies which are long term goals and tactics which are short term goals. This camp is for kids who want to learn chess, and for kids who already know how to play. Camp is scheduled July 11-15, from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm at the Center for Lifelong Learning. The fee is $45.

7-1-2016 3-03-20 PM

Art Explorers will also be running that week – July 11-15, from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm, at the Center for Lifelong Learning. This camp will use a variety of media to explore the creative side of the children. Ms. Valerie Alexander has been the teacher for this camp for three years, and always has a great program. The fee is $55.

We will be offering Ancient Art in Decatur for ages 12 and up. This camp is taught by Robyn Locke and will center on hieroglyphs, cave drawings, and famous artists and their techniques. This camp is scheduled July 11-14, from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm, at the Alabama Center for the Arts in Decatur. The fee is $95.

7-1-2016 3-04-01 PM

Two other camps are offered in July – The Great Brick Adventure, ages 5-13, July 18-21, from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm, at the Center for Lifelong Learning, and Gross Science, ages 8-12, July 25-27, from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm, at the Center for Lifelong Learning.

6-18-2016 11-17-44 AMFor the past two weeks, the Center for Lifelong Learning has been hosting summer camps for children.

Last week there was an archery camp for 8 to 12 year olds. The Archery Camp focused on form and shooting. More than that, the kids learned range safety, eye dominance, and how to set up a shooting range. All of the equipment was provided so kids could come and try archery for the first time. Camp was limited to 20 students, and it maxed out.

This week we have kids in Decatur and in Athens. In Decatur, Ancient Art camp is at the Alabama Center for the Arts. This camp is for 5-7 year olds. They explored cave drawings, investigated hieroglyphs, and even uncover lost civilizations. It was a time for creativity.

6-18-2016 11-17-53 AM

The Athens camp, “From Cows to Cotton,” was an exploration of farming. The kids went on field trips every day. Monday, the kids went to the Farmers Co-op. They picked out plants for their garden. We want to thank the folks at the Farmers Coop, John Curtis and Amy Wright, for their help. After the Co-op, the kids went to the extension office to find information about how to plant their new plants. Susan Smith and Camilla Greene were very helpful. They shared pamphlets and talked to the kids about the services they offer.

On Tuesday, the kids enrolled in “From Cows to Cotton” went to visit Mr. Darryl Adams’ cows. Mrs. Wynell Britton helped us find the farm and told the kids about all the things cows provide for us, like, leather, glue, meat, milk and so much more. Mr. Adams let the kids pet on some of the tamer cows and told the kids about moving the cows between the pastures. It was an exciting morning. But that was not the end of it; after visiting the cows, the kids went to Isom’s Orchard. There they were treated with a chance to pick their own peaches!

6-18-2016 11-18-06 AM

There are more camps coming at the Center for Lifelong Learning. Next week will feature Stop Motion Animation, ages 8-13 and Smart Photography, ages 10 and up.

July 28-30, we will host the CSI Camp. This camp is for 11-12th grade and college students. The camp is an exploration of forensics – blood, bones, and handwriting. Camp is scheduled from 9:00am – 12:00pm.

Even though the month is over, that does not end the camp opportunities. The month of July we will host five more camps – July 11-15, from 9:00am – 12:00pm; Chess, ages 8-12, Art Explorers, ages 8-12, and Ancient Art, ages 12 and up. July 18-22, from 1:00-4:00pm we will host the Great Brick Adventure for ages 5-13.

6-6-2016 1-37-32 PMDid you ever have one of those days when you wake up feeling great, look in the mirror and see yourself as 20 years younger? When I looked in the mirror this morning, my hair was brown again. When this feeling of the impossible hits me, I think of all the things I still have not seen.

At the Center for Lifelong Learning, we are planning a summer trip to the “enchanted forest.” On Friday, July 29, we will leave the Center at 8:00 am, headed to Montevallo, Alabama.

6-6-2016 1-37-40 PMMontevallo, Alabama is in Shelby County, just south of Birmingham. It is the home of the University of Montevallo. And, according to Wikepedia, there is a plaque on Reynolds Cemetery Road that marks the geographic center of the State of Alabama.

But that is not why we are going. We are going to see the trees in Orr Park. Why would you want to go see the trees? As you walk along the park, you will be greeted by carvings of faces in the trees. This remarkable forest of characters is a gift from Tim Tingle, a local artist who wanted to save as many trees as possible after a storm in 1993. Mr. Tingle only uses the dead trees, leaving the living ones to continue to grow. Today, there are over 30 sculptures in Orr Park courtesy of Mr. Tingle.

We are also going to visit the American Village in Montevallo. American Village opened in 1993 as a classroom for children. The goal of the Village was to help children understand the principles of liberty and to understand our history. It is a civics classroom with re-enactments of great moments in history. American Village houses replicas of Mount Vernon, Independence Hall, and the Oval Office.

6-6-2016 1-38-09 PM

This trip will require a good bit of walking. You will be outside a good bit too, so remember to bring your personal fan. This trip would be a good outing for families or for adventurous friends. The fee is only $55/person which includes a picnic lunch. The last day to register is June 30.

If you have not registered for summer camps at the Center for Lifelong Learning, now is the time. Archery Camp is already filled, and several others only have a few spaces left. We have added a camp for older “kids,” too. CSI Camp is for 11th grade and up. It features a short course in forensics around blood, bones, and handwriting tools used to investigate. It sounds like so much fun, I want to attend myself. The fee is $55. Camp is scheduled Tuesday, June 28 – Thursday, June 30, from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.

For more information about what is happening at the Center, call us at 256-233-8260 or visit our webpage – www.athens.edu/CLL. We make regular announcements on Facebook at Center for Lifelong Learning at Athens State University, and on Twitter and Instagram at CLLatAthensState.

5-20-2016 2-47-18 PMThe Center for Lifelong Learning is taking a group to Israel in November. There are still spaces for the trip. All you need is a $500 deposit, and you will be on your way!

People have asked me if I am worried. The answer is maybe, but not today. I know there is plenty of unrest in the area, but most of the areas we will visit are tourist areas. There has never been much scary activity in the tourist areas. Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Iran, Yemen, and Saudi Arabia are far away – like from here to Texas far away.

Jerusalem is the biblical Holy Land for Muslims, Jews, and Christians. In the older part of the city, the Temple Mount complex has shrines to each faith – The Dome of the Rock, a shrine of Islam; the Western Wall, which is sacred to Judaism; the Al-Aqsa Mosque is one of Islam’s holiest shrines; and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre which is supposed to be where Jesus was buried. With so much that means something to every faith, it is unlikely that I need to be worried about my trip.

5-20-2016 2-47-35 PM

I am really excited that November 7th is almost here, just a few more months. I am looking forward to visiting other cities in Israel too. Bethlehem, Cana, the Sea of Galilee, and Mount Zion. We will spend two days in Tel Aviv, the modern financial district of Israel. This is the place for shopping, eating, and discovering historical sites.

Day three, we will travel to Jaffa, an ancient port city built by the Romans. In Caesarea we will visit the center of Christianity where Paul and Peter were held prisoner. Then on to Nazareth to visit Jesus’ boyhood city. And this is just the beginning. We still have three more days of wonderful things to see.

If you have any questions about this trip, please call me at 256-233-8262. I would love to answer your questions, and sign you up for the trip of a lifetime.

If you are still not convinced Israel is the trip for you, how about a trip to Gettysburg? Deposits for the trip to Gettysburg are due June 1, we have to have 30 to go. Just $100 will save your spot on the seven day, six night trip. We will be visiting the Battlefields of Gettysburg. We will be visiting the Pennsylvania Dutch country of Lancaster, PA. And we will stop by the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC. For a full itinerary, check out our web site or call me at 256-8262. The fee is just $699/person for double occupancy.

I am in the process of planning the 2017 day trips and our Christmas trip. If you have suggestions for day trips or overnight trips, you can call me at 256-233-8262.

Whether you are taking a trip or taking a class, learning is an everyday thing. I hope you will come learn with me.

5-6-2016 10-38-32 AMOn May 18, the Center will host The Power of Emotional Intelligence in Leadership at the Dynetics Solutions Complex in Huntsville. The class will be held in the Main Conference Room. The presenter is Lori King-Taylor. You can register online at www.athens.edu/CLL or call me at 256-233-8262.

According to Psychology Today, emotional intelligence is the ability to identify and manage your emotions and the emotions of others. In reality, emotional intelligence is the ability to work well with many different types of people. Emotional intelligence allows you to observe your environment, assess the situation, and respond appropriately to the information provided.

5-6-2016 10-38-40 AM

People with high levels of emotional intelligence are usually the top performers in an organization according to business experts. It is because they are more flexible and adaptable to events in the organizations. This brings new meaning to “go with the flow.”

More than just dealing with difficult people, this workshop will help you to connect with people in more meaningful ways. The workshop will help you identify ways to manage your emotions in highly charged settings, allowing you to perform at your best.

With a few guidelines, King-Taylor will help you understand how your emotions can help you influence the emotions of others that lead to misunderstanding. This workshop will also help you identify the triggers that change small problems to big problems.

5-6-2016 10-39-15 AM

King-Taylor has over 20 years’ experience in training and organizational development. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Adult Education from Athens State University. She earned her Master of Education in Training and Development from Pennsylvania State University. She had the prestigious honor of speaking at the TEDx conference in 2014.

To register for this program, you can call 256-233-8260 or visit our website at www.athens.edu/CLL.

If you have not registered for your child’s summer camp yet, now is a good time to do that, too. They are filling up fast. We are offering a variety of camps this summer for ages 5-12. Check out the website – www.athens.edu/CLL – or LIKE us on Facebook at Center for Lifelong Learning at Athens State University. We make regular announcements on Facebook about all of our classes and events.

If you would like to go to Gettysburg with us in October, now is the time to make your deposit. One hundred dollars will hold your spot for a great week visiting Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and Washington, DC.
