Have a Pleasant Present
Will your estate plan cause hurt and dissension in your family? This short course will address fundamental issues involved in creating an effective estate plan. The class teaches the strategies needed for effective management of your assets as you age (including during periods of incapacity), and guidelines for the appropriate disposition of assets upon death. The class involves a discussion of the use of wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and health care directives. and will also consider questions of planning that include IRAs and other retirement assets.
“This class is about assisting people in understanding that our own personal belief system and self-talk set us up to perceive the world either negatively or positively,” explains instructor Violet Young. “We are influenced and become preconditioned by and through our upbringing and life experiences. As this happens so slowly during our lives, and we become resigned to the ‘usual outcome,’ we are not conscious of the patterns being formed. After resigning ourselves to the ‘that’s just the way it is’ way of life, there is often the onset of depression and anxiety. By exploring and learning to recognize our own patterns and triggers as well as recognizing that we can give ourselves options to view situations from different perspectives, we can then be open to make choices that painlessly create new growth and joy. During the class there will be time for personal exploration and sharing of personal experiences by class members. There will be helpful handouts and the creation of personal flash cards by class members.”

Love Lives Forever “This is a series of three classes designed to assist people who are dealing with the effects of grief and loss, which include anxiety and depression,” wrote instructor Violet Young. “My classes are also appropriate for anyone who is interested in making connections beyond the veil. My classes discuss the concept that Love Never Dies and that connecting with deceased loved ones is possible. I will be presenting my own experiences since my husband crossed over on April 6, 2015, as well as my experiences with other family members prior to this loss. I will also share experiences that I had with my mother when she was in hospice. This will be a forum for people to share their own experiences and thoughts about the possibility that they have received messages from their loved ones. This class is spiritually based, however not religious. I will be assisting people in becoming more open and aware, discerning and receptive of possible messages from loved ones. In my experience, many people have experienced messages and visitations but are often self-conscious or afraid to actually believe it. These classes help people to feel less isolated and confused, leading to more selfacceptance and self-love to assist with the grieving/healing journey.”

Nature Printing in Reverse
Nature printing is the process of deriving a print from a natural object with the use of pigments or inks, in this twist of nature printing, a bleach product (Soft Scrub) is used to remove color from natural fiber fabrics. We’ll use leaves or sliced shells as the carrier. The bleach pastes on the object reacts with dyes and changes or removes the color. The resulting tones can often be a surprise. This is a fun and easy class, who hasn’t accidentally gotten a bleach stain on clothing? You’ll be using your own t-shirts and clothing: they must be a natural fiber (cotton preferred) and the less expensive the product, the easier it bleaches. Students are asked to bring in 3-6 cotton pieces of clothing or fabric.
A basic introduction to the art of mosaics. including a brief history of the art form, as well as the range of techniques applied over time. The opening project will be the production of a mosaic mirror, utilizing the so-called “direct method”, a task that will be completed by the end of the first session. The second session will involve a review of the many materials used in mosaics, and hands-on exercises using a range of tools and techniques that the students will then use during the remainder of the term. It will include illustrations of some of the basic techniques used by mosaicists. The second session will conclude with the students selecting from a large corpus of mosaic pieces a work that they will then proceed to build during the next classes. Whether they complete this single work or proceed to another will depend upon the degree of complexity of their selected work as well as the abilities of the students to master the necessary techniques. The size of the individual projects will vary, and will generally be in the area of 12” x 12”. The remaining sessions will be devoted to the mosaic tasks, and additional instructions, including gluing, grouting, mounting, and framing. Because each student will be selecting his/her unique object, the methods, materials, and processes will vary considerably.

It’s never too late for college! Residents 65 or better receive FREE tuition for credit classes Senior citizens age 65 and above get free tuition for credit classes on a space-available basis and taken for an audit. Auditing is taking a class without receiving a grade or credit. You can only audit a class if there are still seats available on the first day of class. This 100% tuition waiver does not cover lab fees or other class fees. Many classes fill up early, so space is not guaranteed. To use the waiver, find the class you’d like to take in the class schedule, but don’t register yet. Print out the senior waiver form and contact the instructor on the first day of class. Get the instructor’s permission to take the class and have her/him sign the form, then return to Student Services in Newport or Lincoln City. After the waiver has been applied to your account, log into myOCCC and pay any fees not covered by the waiver. Registration prior to the first day of class will void the waiver and charges for the full tuition and fees will apply. Note: you must be an OCCC student to use this waiver. Becoming a student is as easy as filling out OCCC’s online application for admission. For details about the waiver, visit oregoncoastcc.org/seniorwaiver/.
Ready for OCCC? We’re here to help. Registering for the non-credit community education and Small Business courses listed in this publication is simple. Simply visit oregoncoastcc.org/communityed or oregoncoastbusiness.com, or call 541-994-4166.
Registering for credit courses and applying to OCCC Never gone to college? Just a little rusty? No problem! Becoming an OCCC student is easy, and we’re here to help.

Or, visit our Central or North County centers in Newport or Lincoln City, and ask our friendly Student Services team, at right. Once you are admitted you will receive an email with your next steps, but most commonly the next step is to schedule an academic placement appointment (one hour in length) with an advisor. All students new to college will also pick a time to attend an orientation to: • learn about OCCC policies, term deadlines, transfer
and career and technical programs • learn to read the class schedule and online catalog, and be cleared to register • learn about options to consider when
determining how to pay for college • learn how to register and sign up for your myOCCC online account. We look forward to seeing you on campus! winter 2018 • register: 541-996-6222 • 17

Building a Better Business, in Six Steps It gets dark earlier this time of year, so there’s no better time to let Dr. Alberto Flores shine some light on a few powerful ideas that can help you dramatically improve your business, in just a few steps. Six Steps, to be precise. Dr. Flores, Oregon Coast Community College’s full-time business faculty, will teach this powerful one-night a few times in the Alberto Flores months ahead. “Take this opportunity to step out of your business, and learn how to work ‘on’ your business, not just ‘in’ your business,” Flores said. “You will walk away with concrete ideas on how to increase your business’ profits, make your team more efficient and get a grip on time management. You will leave this practical seminar with a clearer direction and new tools to achieve your goals faster.” The presentation explores how Lincoln County business owners can take steps to get more done in less time. It describes the six keys to building a better business, and discusses “bullet-proof profit strategies” for crafting better operations, more effective marketing, improved customer service and increased sales. “Participants will leave with renewed energy, vision and focus for the next level in their business,” Flores said. “Plus, they’ll take home strategies to build profits right away, along with the skills and the tools to get more done in less time, and achieve better results in the business.”

To See Business Principles at Work,
Exert a Little ‘Leverage’ Time for a fresh perspective on the issues you face every day, making business decisions here on the Coast?

Through the game, you’ll see over and over again how marginal improvements made to a business’ performance in just a few key areas can result in tremendous and profound improvements in the bottom line. We guarantee you’ve never been to a business class or workshop like this before! Below, Dr. Flores leads a group of Lincoln City entrepreneurs on a ‘Leverage’ game night held during the Fall term.

Small Business Classes Put Your Website To Work for Your Business! Did you pay a lot for a website and still can’t be found on a Google search? Do you know how much traffic your website is getting? Where is that traffic coming from? What search words do people use to find your services? Google Analytics is a free, powerful, independent tool that can provide you with real answers to how and when visitors are finding your website, and what type of users visit the site, and your social media platforms. Prerequisite: A website with Google Analytics, and access to your report with at least 30 days of traffic – students unsure of how to load Google Analytics on their site should contact the instructor prior to class, at 541-994-4166. This class will cover: • How to read your Google Analytics report • How to evaluate what different reports mean • How to filter out spam traffic from the report • How this information can be used to improve your website • Learn which pages on your site generate the most visits • Understand bounce rate, and how it affects your ranking • What search terms are sending clients to your page • How to block foreign traffic from your site While no one can guarantee Google placement, knowing and understanding your website traffic and the behavior of those clients that are actively using your site can help you improve your results and, ultimately, grow your sales online and in-person.

Wave Apps works from mobile devices, allowing you to generate receipts on the road, invoice on the job site, and take credit cards for a fee of 2.9%, plus 30 cents. Don’t depart another job site without leaving behind the invoice or collecting a payment. There are no monthly fees for Wave Apps, and it is cloud based, so you needn’t be stressed about that old computer you plan to back-up some day. Although Wave Apps does offer some payroll solutions, QuickBooks is still recommended for larger businesses with retail point-of-sale systems or a large numbers of employees.
