Paula Twomey, Spanish instructor in the DMLL, has published Ten Fairy Tales in Latin with Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers, in collaboration with Suzanne Nussbaum.

The ten tales include Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, The Little Red Hen, The Gingerbread Man, The Three Billy Goats Gruff, The Three Little Pigs, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, The Pied Piper, and Sleeping Beauty. These popular fairy tales are presented as a script designed to be read aloud as reader’s theater or performed for a larger audience as a mini-drama. Each tale concludes with both a traditional ending and a “twisted ending” – an unexpected alternative conclusion to the story.  A puzzle or activity accompanies each tale.

Sustainable Tompkins, an organization devoted to catalyzing sustainable development in our region, has awarded a "Sign of Sustainability" to the IC Department of Environmental Studies and Sciences and the Gerontology Institute for their joint development of the 2013 Retirees in Service to the Environment (RISE) program. The IC entities partnered with staff at Longview to implement the RISE program, which involved elders at Longview and from the community in a training program to become effective environmental stewards. Students involved with the IC Natural Lands volunteer stewards program assisted with the training of the older adults. Plans are now underway for the 2014 RISE program.

 Congratulations to all parties involved with this designation.  I am proud to be part of an institution so committed to sustainability, and this and the PRW and Business structures manifest that commitment.
