publishes article in journal
Dr. Bill Stroud, Geography, recently had a
research articles published in the
Florida Water Resources Journal, Sept. 2009, Vol. 61, No. 9. The
article, co-authored with Dr.
Tom Graff, Geography, University of Arkansas-Fayetteville, is "Cape
Coral’s Approach to Water Resource Management." The article
concludes that even communities with a poor layout and design and a
history of inefficiency (such as Cape Coral) are now beginning to
realize the importance of sound resource management and the need to
preserve natural resources, particularly fresh water. This article
illustrates the importance of making provisions for water supply
within pre-platted communities where water needs may be minimal
during the early stages of development. Demands often escalate
dramatically if the community "succeeds" and experiences rapid
population growth. Stroud is also conducting research on water
resource issues at Lake Havasu City in western Arizona. A prolonged
drought and escalating demand for water within the lower Colorado
River basin have made water resource management and conservation a
critical issue for city officials at Lake Havasu City.

'Schultze Gets the Blues' is tonight's
The Department of World Languages and Cultures presents German Movie
Night tonight at 6:30 p.m.
in Wilson Hall, Room 317. The event is free and open to the public.
Tonight's film, "Schultze Gets the Blues" (2003; German with English
subtitles) illustrates that it is never too late to re-tune one's
soul. Schultze is a retired lignite miner living in an East German
village; he is also plays accordion and is a passionate polka
musician. One night he hears a zydeco tune on the radio, which
radically changes his musical tastes. Despite his complete lack of
English, he heads out on a trip into the heart of zydeco country,
south Louisiana. The film stars Horst Krause. For details, contact
the Department of World Languages and Cultures,
visit the department in Wilson Hall, Room 220, or call ext. 3887.
