“Alice’s Ordinary People” Film Screening at the YWCA MDI

Saturday, March 11, 2017 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.

Location: YWCA MDI, 36 Mt. Desert St., Bar Harbor, ME

For more information: 207-288-4245; jesuplibrary.org

Join filmmaker Craig Dudnick for a screening of his film “Alice’s Ordinary People” on Saturday, March 11 at 1 p.m. at the YWCA MDI. The film tells the story of Alice Tregay, a member of the Civil Rights, and the story of ordinary people effecting extraordinary change for human rights.

In 1966, when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. came to Chicago, Tregay and her husband marched with him. It was at this time that Dr. King joined the Reverend Jesse Jackson, and the Reverend James Bevel to form Operation Breadbasket, which Tregay was a member of. Breadbasket fought racism on many fronts, but its main task was jobs for African Americans, particularly from those businesses drawing profits from the African American community.

But it was through her Political Education class, that Tregay had her most significant impact. She eventually took the leadership role in starting the Political Education Division of Rainbow Push, ultimately adding thousands of voters to campaigns for Mayor Harold Washington, President Jimmy Carter, and President Barak Obama.

There will also be a screening of the film the day before with students from the Conners Emerson School. This program is co-sponsored by the Jesup Memorial Library and the YWCA MDI. The screening is free and open to the public. For more information on the film visit http://imaginevideo.org/alices-ordinary-people/ and for more information about the screening contact the Jesup at 207-288-4245 or mcorrion@jesuplibrary.org.

“Remembered Earth” Book Launch

Saturday, March 11, 2017 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Location: Jesup Memorial Library, 34 Mt. Desert St., Bar Harbor, ME

For more information: 207-288-4245; jesuplibrary.org

A launch of Kirsten Stockman’s novel Remembered Earth will take place at Jesup Memorial Library at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 11. The event will feature selected readings by four actors with local Maine roots, Nan Lincoln, Alexandra Lincoln, Carl Karush, and Cindy Robbins. It will open with singing by the Maine Balkan Choir, a group founded by Stockman two decades ago, with a guest appearance by Elitsa Stoyneva, an award-winning Bulgarian vocalist.

Kirsten Stockman died in 2013 as a result of colon cancer. Her novel was published posthumously by Maine Authors Publishing and released in the fall of 2016.

Remembered Earth unfolds in the farmland of central Kansas during the course of one summer. It includes a wide array of characters set against the backdrop of a Kansas wheat harvest. Over-arching themes include Harlan’s courage, Jon’s anger, Hazen’s heart, Anna’s 1954 pickup truck, Max’s dementia, Grady’s fear, Bea’s hunger, Anna’s Ivy League scholarship, Anna’s heart, and the drought, the drought, when will it ever rain?

The author’s husband, Tom Crikelair, said that readings for the book launch have been selected to provide a brief but full measure of what the novel has to offer. “We have tried to put together a dramatic event that will stand on its own, even for people who do not read the book,” Crikelair said. The program includes songs from the choir, a poem by Bar Harbor poet Kim O’Brien, and selections from the novel in two parts, with a brief intermission.

Remembered Earth will be for sale at Jesup Memorial Library with all proceeds going to the library’s annual operating fund. The book is also available at Shermans Book Store and from Amazon. More information about Stockman’s novel can be found at www.kirstenstockman.com.

Author Talk and Book Signing: Dr. Robert Gallon “Nine Dimensions of Madness”

Friday, March 10, 2017 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Location: Jesup Memorial Library, 34 Mt. Desert St., Bar Harbor, ME

For more information: 207-288-4245; jesuplibrary.org

Dr. Robert Gallon, who was the Chief Psychologist at Eastern Mane Medical Center, challenges the widely held belief that mental disorders are medical diseases in his book “Nine Dimensions of Madness: Redefining Mental Health.” Join Dr. Gallon for an author talk and book signing on Fri., March 10 at 7 p.m. at the Jesup Memorial Library.

Dr. Gallon proposes an alternative system to the current psychiatric diagnostic system, where mental problems are viewed as varying dimensions of dysfunction. He argues that the origin of these problems are a complex interaction of biological, psychological and social factors. Dr. Gallon writes that people range from exceptionally functional through adequate and then increasing dysfunctional. There are no breaks between normal and abnormal and his disorder labels merely mark the level of dysfunction along the nine dimensions he has identified.

“Readers of this eye-opening book will find their beliefs and assumptions about ‘mental disorders’ forever changed,” writes Howard Ehrlichman, PhD, Emeritus Professor of Psychology, Queens College of the City University of New York. “Combining scholarly research with his personal experiences as a clinical psychologist, with fascinating examples and anecdotes, the book is an eminently readable exploration of ‘madness’ in our time.”

Dr. Gallon has taught in the Department of Psychiatry and was a psychologist at the Psychosomatic Medicine Clinic at the Jefferson Medical School. He was the Chief Psychologist at Eastern Maine Medical Center, where he helped found the Chronic Pain Program. He was a Psychological Examiner for the court for involuntarily committed psychiatric patients and a consulting psychologist for the State Forensic Service. Over the course of his career, he has evaluated more than 5000 individuals in a wide variety of circumstances.

Books will be on sale that night courtesy of co-sponsor Sherman’s Books. For more information on the talk, contact the Jesup at 207-288-4245 or kchagnon@jesuplibrary.org

Husson University’s College of Business and University of Maine School of Law Sign Agreement to Facilitate Student Transfers

Chelsea Broomhall from Saco, Maine is the first student from any institution to enter Maine Law under this new agreement.

BANGOR and PORTLAND, MAINE – February 24, 2017 – Husson University’s College of Business has signed a 3+3 articulation agreement with the University of Maine School of Law. Under this agreement, students who study for three years at Husson University can then apply for admission to Maine Law’s three-year Juris Doctor (JD) program. Students who complete one year of Maine Law’s JD program will satisfy the remaining requirements for a bachelor’s degree from Husson University.

“This is an outstanding opportunity for students interested in furthering their legal education,” said Husson University College of Business Dean Marie Hansen, Ph.D. “Creating this agreement smoothes the transfer of credit process from Husson to Maine Law. We are pleased to be working closely with Maine Law to help ease the transition to law school.”

“Maine Law is excited to offer this opportunity to students who are clear about their career goals,” said Caroline Wilshusen, Associate Dean for Admissions at Maine Law. “Maine Law sees this as an opportunity to encourage students throughout Maine to consider a law degree as a path towards leadership and service in their local communities.”

Since the new 3+3 agreement was initiated, three students from Husson University have been accepted to Maine Law. The first was Chelsea Broomhall from Saco, Maine. She is currently a junior at Husson University pursuing a Bachelor of Science in legal studies – pre-law degree with a paralegal certificate. Broomhall was recently named to Husson University’s Dean’s List.

“I’ve always known that I wanted to go to law school and become an attorney,” says Broomhall. “I started at Husson because I was able to transfer nine credits from Biddeford Regional Center for Technology. That was almost a semester’s worth of classes.”

“Participating in the 3+3 program allows me to save a year’s worth of tuition and get into my chosen career field faster,” concluded Broomhall.

“I am pleased that the University of Maine School of Law is reaching prospective law students like Chelsea Broomhall,” stated Dean Danielle Conway. “This program was made possible through collaborations with fine institutions like Husson University. I am also thrilled that Ms. Broomhall has taken full advantage of Maine Law’s Pre-Law Undergraduate Scholars (PLUS) Program to sharpen her resolve to one day become a lawyer in Maine.”

In assessing the significance of this agreement, Margaret Campbell, assistant professor at the School of Legal Studies at Husson University’s College of Business said, “I was a graduate of Maine Law and wish there had been an opportunity like this when I was going to school. As a result of this articulation agreement, students interested in earning a law degree get a great education and save money; both schools increase enrollments, and our state gets quality lawyers who can serve the needs of the public, particularly in underserved areas of the state. Everyone wins.”

The University of Maine School of Law, located in the coastal city of Portland, Maine, is a small school with a regional impact and a global reach. As Maine’s public and only law school, Maine Law prepares graduates for careers as leaders inside and outside the traditional legal profession. Maine Law is a community of individuals who are invested in learning and serving, and are diverse in their backgrounds, professional experiences, and interests. Their graduates are prepared on every level for success in fields including law, business, government, and public service. Learn more at mainelaw.maine.edu.

For more than 100 years, Husson University has prepared future leaders to handle the challenges of tomorrow through innovative undergraduate and graduate degrees. With a commitment to delivering affordable classroom, online and experiential learning opportunities, Husson University has come to represent superior value in higher education. Our Bangor campus and off-campus satellite education centers in Southern Maine, Wells, and Northern Maine provide advanced knowledge in business; health and education; pharmacy studies; science and humanities; as well as communication. In addition, Husson University has a robust adult learning program. For more information about educational opportunities that can lead to personal and professional success, visit Husson.edu.

Scott Tash, CEO of UCP of Maine, recently shared “From everyone at UCP of Maine, we thank Alison Small, Courtney Daigle, and LuLaRoe for their generous donation.
