Trauth's herpetology book is
getting lots of attention
great deal of state-wide news media attention has developed with the
publication of Dr. Stanley Trauth's book,
“The Amphibians and Reptiles
of Arkansas.” Dr. Trauth has worked nearly 20 years on this
comprehensive, modern reference book. Book signings are
planned in Mountain Home, Jonesboro and Blytheville. The first book
signing will be held from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 7, at
The Cherry Tree Bookstore in Mountain Home, Trauth's hometown. The second signing on the
tour will be held in conjunction with the Grand Opening festivities of
the Crowley’s Ridge Nature Center on Saturday, Aug. 28, at 10 a.m. The
presentation will be in the nature center’s auditorium followed by a
book signing in the lobby, where several of Dr. Trauth’s photographs are
on display. Other book signings are being coordinated for the fall with
the ASU Bookstore and That
Bookstore in Blytheville. For more about the book, see snakes.
ASU staffer will compete in Athens
who spends much of his time helping ASU students reach their goals, has
a very high goal of his own this summer. Miles,
associate director of Advisement Services, finished third in the Olympic
Track and Field Trials Sunday to secure one of three spots on the U.S.
pole vault team. He recorded a jump of 19 feet, 1/4 inch to make
the team with Athens-bound Timothy Mack and Toby Stevenson. Miles,
who joined the staff of ASU's Wilson Center for Academic Advising and
Learning Assistance about three years ago, is expected to return to
campus briefly before heading off to full-time training. He
studied (and vaulted) at the University of South Dakota, earning a
bachelor's degree in history and a master's degree in athletic
administration before heading south. At ASU, he assists students
with choosing a major and works with the Restart and Early Alert
Programs. The Olympic Games begin Aug. 13.
to be razed this summer
Delta Hall, which served as a men's residence hall for 45 years,
will be torn down this summer. After mold was discovered in the
ventilation system about a year ago, the building was closed while
alternatives were evaluated. Cost estimates for removing asbestos
and fixing the air system run $800,000; renovations to update and
adapt the two-story building for other uses would cost even more.
Demolition is expected to be completed by August,
followed by landscaping as green space.
Food: Who's eating what?
tomorrow morning, two faculty members in political science will talk
about changing patterns of food consumption, based on a five-state
survey. Dr. William McLean and Dr. Patrick Stewart will present
"food for thought," based on their research, to the University Heights
Lions Club, which meets at 6:30 a.m. for breakfast at Western Sizzlin'.
CLIP Program overview meetings planned
who missed the e-mailed announcement last week, the Career Ladder
Incentive Program (CLIP) is about to get underway for another year.
The overview session will be offered twice on Tuesday, at 9 a.m. and 2
p.m., and twice on Wednesday, at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., in the Convocation
Center auditorium. Supervisors and employees are welcome.
While the CLIP program can result in monetary reward, professional
development is the program's real goal.
