Keep Outdoor Summer Fun Going After Dark
(StatePoint) Your outdoor summer fun doesn’t have to stop after sundown.
Whether you’re hosting a backyard barbecue, enjoying an evening hike, or simply hanging out with friends and family, these lighting tips from the experts at Energizer can keep summer fun going long after dark.
• Barbecuing? Ensure the grill master has sufficient lighting to do the job safely. Strategically placed lanterns on patio tables and near the grill will ensure the meat is cooked to perfection and guests enjoy a well-lit al fresco dining experience. Consider lanterns which provide 360-degree uniform lighting, such as those from Energizer, which have dimming capabilities, offering you more control of your outdoor lighting scheme.
• You may be closely familiar with every rock and stick in your backyard, but guests probably aren’t. Before your next party or barbecue, illuminate pathways where guests will be moving about. Battery-powered or hardwired options will give guests sure footing throughout your yard.
• Incorporate flashlights into the fun itself. On your next camping trip, stake out a space for a game of flashlight tag. Bring enough lights so everyone can join in on the fun. Afterward, head back to the campfire and let your flashlight make your scary story that much spookier.
• Use the right lighting tools for evening hikes and neighborhood dog walks. A lightweight headlight with pivoting functionality can help you direct light where it’s needed and keep your hands free to clear bramble, get a tighter hold of that leash, or snap a photo of the evening sky. Consider headlights from Energizer, which are water resistant and drop-tested to stand up to tough conditions.

With the right lighting tools, your summer adventures can last long after the sun has set.

The Courage to Lead
The Courage to Lead: Impacting School Culture from the Inside Out- Morgan Lee and Sandra S. Merriam. Monday, July 24, 2017 6:00 PM - 12:30 PM to Thursday, July 27, 2017 6:00 PM - 12:30 PM. Kirkridge 2495 Fox Gap Road, Bangor. Experience a different approach to leadership development, The Courage to Lead, rooted in the belief that effective leadership flows from the identity and integrity of the individual. Through the process of leadership formation, participants discern the ways in which their selfhood affects how they relate to colleagues, their leadership tasks, their organization, and the world – how they relate to their role as visionaries who foster the energy behind the culture of schools. Based on the work of Palmer J. Parker, author of The Courage to Teach and A Hidden Wholeness, this national program fosters personal and professional renewal by creating a different kind of professional development that offers participants the opportunity to slow down and reflect on life and work. Staff Development hours will be available as a result of participation in this retreat.
Led by: Morgan Lee and Sandie Merriam. Both are long-time public school educators who are prepared by the Center for Courage & Renewal to facilitate Courage Work, grounded in the philosophy of Parker J. Palmer. Courage Work began as The Courage to Teach ® – and has evolved into The Courage to Lead® and Circles of Trust®. Sandie knew this was her life’s work, creating the spaces for teacher leaders and school leaders to claim their voice and agency, from the time she was in the pilot Courage to Teach two-year program more than 20 years ago. Morgan was drawn to The Courage to Teach while in his role as director of South Carolina’s Principal Induction Program. He realized that his passion was to help educational leaders, including principals and teachers from across the state, bring their energy more fully to what Palmer calls “new leadership for new times…” Sandie and Morgan’s experience totals more than 75 years – and they have worked with teachers and school leaders from across the US and Canada. Their work in the world now is based on their shared belief that we teach who we are – and that the most effective leadership emerges from a willingness to examine one’s identity and integrity and to bring that authentic sense of self to the outer world. Cost $575 includes double occupancy room, board and tuition.

THIS DAY IN HISTORY - July 23
Miss America resigns - 1984
On this day in 1984, 21-year-old Vanessa Williams gives up her Miss America title, the first resignation in the pageant’s history, after Penthouse magazine announces plans to publish nude photos of the beauty queen in its September issue. Williams originally made history on September 17, 1983, when she became the first black woman to win the Miss America crown. Miss New Jersey, Suzette Charles, the first runner-up and also an African American, assumed Williams’ tiara for the two months that remained of her reign.
Vanessa Lynn Williams was born March 18, 1963, in Millwood, New York, to music teacher parents. She attended Syracuse University and studied musical theater. In 1982, while working a summer job as a receptionist at a modeling agency in Mt. Kisco, New York, photographer Thomas Chiapel took the nude pictures of Williams, telling her they’d be shot in silhouette and that she wouldn’t be recognizable. After Williams became Miss America, the photographer sold the pictures to Penthouse without her knowledge. Williams later dropped lawsuits against the magazine and photographer after it was learned that she had signed a model release form at the time the photos were taken.
The Miss America pageant, which prides itself on projecting a wholesome, positive image of women, began in 1921 in Atlantic City, New Jersey, as a stunt developed by local businessmen to extend the summer tourist season. In 1945, the Miss America Organization handed out its first scholarship. Today, it provides over $45 million each year in cash and tuition assistance to contestants on the national, state and local levels. In 1954, the competition was broadcast live for the first time. Beginning in the 1980s, contestants were required to have a social platform, such as drunk-driving preventionor AIDS awareness, and Miss America winners now travel an estimated 20,000 miles a month for speaking engagements and public appearances. In 2006, following a decline in TV ratings, the pageant moved from Atlantic City for the first time in its history and took place in Las Vegas, where a new Miss America was crowned in January instead of September.
