Diseases which plague our populations like heart disease, cancer, and diabetes are quite often food-borne illnesses that are directly correlated with our Western diet of rich animalbased and/or processed foods. These foods are virtually absent in a WFPB diet which emphasizes whole (living) plant-foods. A multitude of empirical studies have indicated that a diet of whole plant foods has the potential to not only prevent, but reverse and/or improve many common disease processes. The WFPB (vegan) diet has been dubbed the healthiest of all dietary plans by various centers of academia. In addition, the animal agriculture and processed food industries are among the most environmentally destructive industries from every sector: land use, water pollution, soil degradation, air pollution, deforestation, oceanic deletion/die-offs, and oxygen depletion. Our inevitable population growth and economic development means that our planet can no longer sustain these intensive/destructive industries. This course is dedicated to the premise that one lifestyle change has the potential “to decimate our eco-footprint and impact on our over-burdened healthcare system.” INSTRUCTOR: MICHAEL STOUT, RPSGT, CCSH TUESDAYS, 5:30 – 7 PM • APRIL 23 & APRIL 30 • $25 CENTRAL CAMPUS, NEWPORT

Family History Research for Beginners

Presented by Lincoln County Genealogical Society (LCGS) Who are you? What makes you… well, you? We all know that we carry DNA from our ancestors, but even more than that, we carry our ancestors’ cultures, beliefs, values and stories forward into the future. What’s your family’s story? Quite often, we don’t know much, if anything, about our family further than a couple of generations back. Effective genealogical or family history research often begins with identifying goals, such as solving a family mystery or researching one of your family’s surnames. As you do initial research, you will find that those goals will take shape and give you a direction to work toward. This six-week course will provide you the necessary tools to begin your journey into family history and genealogical research. The format of the class will include hands-on Internet research. Consequently, some computer familiarity is advised. Materials will be provided by instructors and a one-year Lincoln County Genealogical Society membership will be gifted to class participants. If possible, please bring information (name, date of birth or age estimate, and residence location) of an ancestor who was living in United States in 1940. In this class you will learn how to build a basic family tree and organize your information. You’ll learn how to evaluate and analyze sources, becoming familiar with a variety of genealogical websites along the way. You will discover your family’s history by way of census reports, birth, marriage and death records, immigration and military records, and by networking and collaborating with other family researchers. You might be surprised what you find!

A new leader, for a new OCCC Program OSCAR JUÁREZ TRADES EL PASO FOR NEWPORT TO LEAD EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION PROGRAM Amidst a backdrop of ferns and firs, a little potted cactus sits on a windowsill at Oregon Coast Community College’s Central County Campus in Newport. It’s there to help ease the transition for Oscar Juárez as he acclimates to his new environment. Born and raised in El Paso, Texas, Oscar moved to Newport early in the year to head the College’s brand-new Early Childhood Education program, and though he has no regrets, he admits it has been an adjustment. “I definitely miss the climate, that’s why I have this little guy with me,” he said, tilting his head toward the colorful pot. “But Newport actually reminds me of home in lots of other ways. Even though I came from a big city, we have a small-town feel – and I like that there is that small-town feel here, too. Also, one of my daughters, Clara, came out with me for the interview. She liked it here, so that sealed it.” Oscar and his wife, Terry, have five children. Clara, 21 years old, and Yasmin, 20, are currently college students. Their other three children Jesus, 17, Oscar B., 13, and Alicia, 10, are still in school, so the family decided that Juárez would make the move alone until the end of the current term, with the family due to join him in Newport in June or July.

I felt this was a community that needed me more, and now that I’ve been here for a bit, I feel I made the right choice.

The early education of an early educator

Though Juárez originally went to college to study chemistry, a conversation with his old high school chemistry teacher caused him to change lanes. At the time, he was just two semesters shy of graduating with a bachelor’s degree. “He told me he thought I would enjoy teaching better than being stuck in a lab,” Oscar said. “At that time, my family had started to grow and my priorities were changing, so instead of finishing school I looked for work and ended up at the Head Start program.” He found the work very fulfilling, but a peer at Head Start encouraged him to go back and finish his bachelor’s, which he ultimately did at New Mexico State University. Still not satisfied, he applied for a graduate program at the University of Texas at El Paso. “I was told that I was accepted on the first day that class started, so I had to get everything like my student ID, financial aid, and books taken care of really fast,” he said. “But even with that rough beginning, I finished, so I was happy, and it has made me more sympathetic to what many students have to go through to get everything they need to start a new program.” After graduating with a master’s in Curriculum and Instruction, Oscar continued to work for Head Start. “I continued with Head Start because they were the first ones to give me an opportunity,” he said. “But I also found that I love working with kids that come from low-income families. That’s really what kept me there.”


Growing teachers

The OCCC Early Childhood Education Pathway Certificate program will prepare students to work at programs like Head Start, become family child care providers and child care teachers, or will get them on their way toward a teaching degree if that is the direction they choose to take. “Individuals who want to work as teachers with infants or in preschool settings need to have as a minimum a certificate in Early Childhood Education,” said Linda Mollino, OCCC’s Director of Career and Technical Educational programs. “There are some people who want to work in the field but not as teachers, or they may already be working in the field and just want to show proof that they have some training but don’t necessarily plan on earning a certificate or a two- or four-year degree.” This program will assist them in moving up on the Oregon Registry. Partial funding for the new program, which is based on the one at Portland Community College, came from a grant from the Meyer Memorial Trust. “We addressed it as a rural education project with two components: early childhood and K-12,” Mollino said. “The goal is to get more people into early childhood education in Lincoln County and to keep them here, because that’s something we have a need for.” The way the program is structured, students can actually get in to the early education program during high school. “The program only launched this winter, but we already have high school students who are interested in early childhood education,” Mollino said. “Students can take dual credit classes; meaning that they can be taking classes with us or at the high school, and get credit at both for the same class. That way they can be almost finished with their certificate by the time they graduate. It also gives them an early taste of what college will be like.” Early Childhood Education program participants also have opportunities to experience the industry by volunteering at the Lincoln County School District.

Even more education pathways

Mollino and other staff hope that OCCC will help fill the need for local grade and high school teachers as well. Through a new rural teacher education program, also funded by Meyer Memorial Trust, OCCC is working with the Lincoln County School District to provide local residents with the chance to earn a four-year teaching degree right here at home – excepting about nine months studying in Monmouth at Western Oregon University – and to help them find permanent teaching positions right here in Lincoln County after they complete their degrees. “They can take their general education requirements here and earn an associate’s degree, then finish their four-year degree at Western Oregon University, and then come back here for their practicum,” Mollino said. “Basically what we are doing is growing teachers. As a career choice, teachers are in high demand, and we always try to provide opportunities for job security.”

Connecting with the community

Accepting the Early Childhood Education Program position was made slightly harder for Oscar by a competing offer from a different employer at about the same time, but ultimately, he went with his heart.

“My alma mater called me with the same type of position at almost the exact same time as I heard from OCCC,” he said. “I felt this was a community that needed me more, and now that I’ve been here for a bit I feel I made the right choice. I have a lot of experience working with low-income families, and as a Hispanic person, I’ve heard from people that said they were excited to see someone with their skin color who can speak their language, and others saying that seeing me in this job gives them hope.” According to Mollino, Juárez’s educational background, work experience at Head Start and his cultural background were large factors contributing to his appointment. “Part of Oscar’s role is representing the program in all of the different communities we have here in Lincoln County,” she said. “We feel we made the perfect choice.” Whether the windowsill that holds his cactus is here on the Oregon Coast, or somewhere much warmer, what gets Oscar Juárez springing out of bed in the morning is the passion he has for his work. “The most satisfaction I’ve ever had was walking down a hallway where all the kids knew who I was and were calling out my name,” he said. “I felt like a rock star. Parents of kids who weren’t even in my classes would say that they heard about me more than about their kid’s regular teachers. That’s been my greatest joy, and now I get to help grow a program that will give other people the same chance to find that joy.” – Story & photos by Gretchen Ammerman
