Community Action Center

Cooking and Food Budgeting Classes Begin

 Pullman Community Update 9

Meet the Staff: Anita Peterson, Family Services Outreach Specialist Describe what you do at Community Action Center. I take the services from Community Action Center out to the wider Whitman County area rather than just serving people around Pullman. I’ve been working recently with Energy Assistance; people’s energy bills are spiking this winter. It takes a lot of coordination to get people’s propane tanks refilled! We go out to the towns like Tekoa, Garfield, and Rosalia and set up in whatever location the city can allot us. I also coordinate with the Whitman County Libraries. That way, libraries in rural areas can let people know when Community Action Center will be there to help with Energy Assistance and housing. We keep people from having to drive all the way to Pullman to access our services. How long have you worked for Community Action Center? I started in September 2016. What’s the best part of your job? I really enjoy working with people. I love to problem solve and help people reach their goals. This job is the perfect blend of those qualities. I meet a lot of people in the community, I hear their stories, and find solutions that help ease their burdens. What do you do in your free time? I love to travel, learn the languages and cultures of the places I visit, and the history of those places. I speak some Spanish. I lived in Finland and have done some Finnish language courses. Wherever I go I try to learn at least a few phrases of the language: hello, how are you, good morning and good night. I also like to dine out. This area has high-quality cuisine for such a small place. I also like hiking and reading.

Community Action Center kicked off a brand-new cooking class series on January 10th, designed to help community members on a tight budget cook and eat healthy food. The series, called “Plan, Shop, Save, and Cook,” covers food budgeting, reading nutrition labels, meal planning, how to get the most bang for your buck at the grocery store, and how to cook healthy meals. Classes in the series are held once per week for 10 weeks, and teach residents how to use the fresh produce available at the Community Food Bank. Leafy greens and produce are available year-round thanks to the hydroponic bays at the Community Action Center building and the donations from local grocery stores. Research shows that people experiencing hunger are less likely to eat produce, more likely to have diabetes and high cholesterol, and, ultimately, have a shorter life. Cooking at home can help prevent these health issues by controlling ingredient amounts, seeking healthier substitutes, and planning for balanced meals when writing weekly meal plans for shopping trips. The class series grew out of two other related initiatives: the monthly fresh food cooking demonstrations held at the food bank, and Culinary Club at Lincoln Middle School. Both of these emphasize preparing healthy food in creative, delicious ways. When the new community kitchen is complete later this winter, it will be home to regular class series and have room and supplies for 12 participants to cook together. Because it is important to set kids up for lifelong health with cooking and gardening skills, classes focused on Kids in the Kitchen and kid’s gardening are being offered at Rosalia School and Pullman School District later this spring. Gardens and Nutrition Specialist Joe Astorino, who teaches the class, is already seeing positive outcomes. “I notice a lot of people helping each other, giving each other ideas about how and what to cook. It’s really a peer support model,” Astorino said.

Why do you serve on the board? It’s a good project and it’s helping people out. It helps people who are willing to help themselves. Community Action Center helps with housing and opportunities for people in need, ensuring they have someplace to go. There’s nothing worse than feeling total desperation, and Community Action Center gives them someplace to go for help.

New Cooking Class Series Slated for Spring

What do you do in your free time? Volunteering… It depends on the season. In the summer I do mowing and garden work. In the winter I shovel snow. I paint buildings around town, inside and outside. I work on machinery, little mechanical jobs. I’m also a pilot, but when you’re not working for money it’s hard to afford that pleasure.

Are you stuck in a dinnertime rut? Do you end up having more month than money? Please join us for our spring session of Plan, Shop, Save, and Cook classes! These classes are a great way to share what you already do well with others, and get new ideas on how to shop for and cook great food on a shoestring budget. Tuesdays March 28-May 30th 5:30-7:00PM Community Action Center Classroom

Food Bank Volunteer Needed! We are looking for a volunteer to put the shine on the food bank by spending three to six hours each week cleaning and doing maintenance work. To apply, email barbm@cacwhitman.org or call 509-334-9147 and ask for Barb.

What superpower would you like to have? The ability to predict the future!

Meet the Board: Peter Holland What is your day job? I’m semi-retired. I am the former mayor of Uniontown and I do volunteer work now because of all of the projects I was involved in while I was mayor. I help out with the Uniontown Community Development Association and have repainted the new winery, the Dahmen Barn, and the new library. Just now I’ve been shoveling snow off of people’s roofs so they don’t cave in. How long have you served on the CAC board? Actually, I’m a short-time member. It’s been a year and a half; not quite two years.

What superpower would you like to have? Fifty years ago on TV, it was always the guys in the white hats that were the good guys. I’d like to be the good guy, with the superpower of making sure things turn out all right.

Community Food Bank Community Food Bank hours: Wednesday 10:00 am – 1:00 pm Thursday 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm Food bank needs for February are: • Rice • Soup • Fruit • Personal Products • Peanut Butter • Toilet Paper You can bring donations to 350 SE Fairmont Road in Pullman weekdays from 8:00-4:00 (closed for lunch 12:00-1:00).

This Archive has grown since the founding of the Whitman County Historical Society in 1972.

(Or, you can just relax at our indoor picnic area and comfy couches…We even have free wireless)! If you’re new to town, the science center is a great way to meet other families with kids in the area. Come in from the cold and get to know our world-class science center!

Boost Your Birding Skills by Seeing a New Bird Every Day This Year Here’s what you need to know to do this fun but difficult challenge. A bird a day keeps the doldrums away—and your birding senses sharp. That's the idea behind the “bird-a-day” challenge, a daunting goal that some birders take on every January. There are two ways to do it: You can enter an online competition, such as birdaday.net, and log your daily observations in a public forum, or you can make it a personal mission and self referee. Most individuals don't make it past a month or two; a rare few will keep the trend alive for longer than six months. Even so, just the challenge of seeing how many days in a row you can find a new bird is fun and worthwhile, mainly because of the knowledge and skills you pick up along the way. It gets you in the habit of constantly scanning your surroundings and gives you an excuse to check out new birding haunts. More importantly, it helps you perfect your timing and learn how birds choose their habitats, which are key to birding. Getting 365 species in a year is one thing; spreading them out evenly over 365 days is another. There are more than 700 species that can be found regularly in the United States and Canada. If you’re hoping to log more than half—and do it at a steady pace—you have to come up with a plan. One of the hardest parts of the challenge is burning through the common birds. The turnover in seasons might help you: Winter is great for fowl, spring brings thrilling songbirds, summer is best for shorebirds, and fall sends streams of raptors downwind. But even with these waves, there are rough patches. Birds don't stick around for long, so banking on 30 newcomers over the course of any one month is dangerous. The best strategy here is to always note the most unusual species you see. That way, you can save the regulars for a day when you’re too busy or stressed to do some real birding. Just remember, this is a marathon. Enjoy the challenge, and even if you don’t make it to the very end, at least you’ll be in great birding shape.

Please provide the location about which you are concerned so the appropriate people can be notified. All residents are required to maintain their sidewalks in a safe manner.

Campers spend five afternoons exploring the biome in which we live and go home with a minidiorama of their own creation. Each day will have a different focus: climate, geography, botany, and zoology. Through daily hikes, games, and art they’ll gain handson experience with each of these topics. At the end of the camp they’ll take home more than just a diorama, they’ll have a deeper sense of appreciation for, and connection to, the natural world of which we are all an integral part. Campers will need to be physically able and prepared

to hike each day by arriving with appropriate clothing, sturdy shoes, and a backpack containing water, snack, gloves, and a hat. Youth in grades 1-5 are welcome to register for this camp that meets from 12:30-3:30 p.m., Monday-Friday, Feb. 27-March 3. *Fee: $70.

New! Girls on Guard© Defending yourself is a massive concept that includes mental, physical, and emotional prevention of harm. With regard to the physical component, you do not have to be a black belt or hide from the public to reduce the odds of surviving and escaping an attack. Girls on Guard© has been designed over several decades to support women and girls in addressing the unique challenge of sexual violence and general self-defense. This is NOT an introductory martial arts program. Instead, it is a skill set designed for women of all body types and athleticism to defend themselves from a larger and stronger attacker.

Carbon Monoxide Safety Tips The winter months can be the most dangerous time of the year for carbon monoxide poisoning. The Pullman Fire Department reminds you that carbon monoxide, also known as CO, is called the invisible killer because it's a colorless, odorless, poisonous gas. More than 150 people in the Unites States die every year from accidental non-fire related CO poisoning associated with consumer products. The symptoms of CO poisoning include, headaches, nausea, dizziness or confusion or flu like symptoms. Cold weather increases the use of gas-powered furnaces as well as the use of alternative heating and power sources (portable generators, charcoal briquettes, propane stoves or grills) during power outages. With these sobering facts, the Pullman Fire Department has the following safety tips to prevent CO poisoning: • Have your heating system, water heater and any other gas, oil or coal-burning appliance inspected and serviced by a qualified technician every year. • Install battery-operated CO detectors on every level of your home. • Don’t use a generator, charcoal grill, camp stove or other gasoline or charcoal-burning device inside the home, basement or garage or outside the home near a window. • Don’t burn anything in an unvented stove or fireplace. • Don’t let a vehicle idle inside a garage attached to a house, even if the garage door is left open. If a CO detector sounds, leave your home immediately and call 911 from outside. Seek prompt medical attention if you suspect CO poisoning.

Snow and Ice Control Program A link to the complete snow and ice control program, including the table of secondary streets as well as information about the downtown business district, city sidewalks and parking lots, is posted on the city Web site home page www.pullman-wa.gov under Announcements. During ice and/or snow events, the Maintenance and Operations Division strives to provide safe street access to necessary, life-sustaining, essential services (such as Pullman Regional Hospital), by focusing efforts in the most efficient way to assist the most drivers. City crews concentrate initial efforts on primary streets—streets that lead to those life-sustaining services. It is of little benefit for streets leading to primary streets to be passable if primary streets are impassable. Whenever possible, efforts are extended to secondary streets, including transit routes and other nonarterial streets with high-volume traffic, many of which are residential streets which is where the majority of the population can be found. Finally, as time and conditions allow, all other paved streets, cul-de-sacs, unpaved streets, paved alleys and unpaved alleys that are not designated as primary or secondary streets are plowed. Motorists are strongly urged to use the primary and secondary streets whenever possible to reach their destinations and are also encouraged to drive slowly, with caution and allow for plenty of stopping distance.

PULLMAN CAMPUS

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT Anne Hello! My name is Anne. I am an SFCC-Pullman student, and I would like to share part of my story with you. As a survivor of domestic and sexual violence, my journey to recover and reclaim my life has been challenging. For several years, navigating the world was difficult. I had a hard time trusting anyone. I felt damaged and unworthy of a better life, let alone an education. However, I have learned to rise above my fears by realizing how brave I am and that I can influence others through my encouragement. I hope to be part of the global conversation against violence, and I look toward educators to help prepare me to effectively advocate for victims and survivors of crimes such as domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking. With aspirations of receiving my AA Transfer degree, I entered SFCC at the age of 42. After being out of school for over two decades, I needed the attention I would receive at a community college. I could barely operate a computer and was quite intimidated. I began in Dyan Bledsoe's Adult Basic Education class, and through her encouragement and guidance, I successfully started college as a full-time student in the fall of 2015. I didn’t expect my experience to be as beneficial as it has been. I am learning through my education how to think and write critically, how to shape an argument that may change the lives of others. My academic work has promoted extensive healing in my life. Utilizing my voice, which I had lost for so many years, is a triumph for my soul. At SFCC-Pullman, I have also found a community of people who share some of my hopes and dreams of a better world. I am a proud member of Associated Student Government, and am the vice chair this year. I will graduate from SFCC in the summer of 2017 and continue my education at a university with the eventual goal of earning a master’s degree in social work and then starting my career as a social worker. For anyone who needs encouragement, remember you are not alone. I am not unique. You are brave and strong like me. Today you can choose to use this strength to transform your life. You are worth it. I will keep telling you that, as others did for me, until you believe it yourself.

ENROLL NOW! 1. Apply for admission and financial aid online. The financial aid priority deadline for the spring quarter is February 10. 2. Complete any required placement testing. 3. Meet to discuss classes

The SFCC Pullman Campus is located on the third floor of the Gladish Community and Cultural Center, 115 NW State Street.

Running Start FAQ. How old do I need to be to do Running Start? Juniors and Seniors are eligible to take classes, but you can begin the paperwork process the spring of your Sophomore year. Home Schooled students can also participate. How much does RS cost? • Application to SFCC: FREE • Transcript evaluation if you are using it for placement purposes: $15.00 • Testing fee (if you don’t have above a 3.0 high school G.P.A or threshold SAT, ACT, Smarter Balance scores): $30.00 • Tuition: FREE • Labs and fees: Vary by class. If you qualify for free/reduced lunch at your high school, there are no class fees. Where do I start? 1. Meet with your HS counselor and let him/her know you are interested in RS 2. Contact Dyan Bledsoe at SFCC Pullman Campus Running Start testimonial: My experience with the Running Start program was very positive, and I’m thankful it was an option for me. Because I had been home schooled previously, I had never taken any on-ground classes before doing Running Start at SFCC-Pullman. The small class sizes at SFCC were especially nice for me, and being able to start taking college-level classes a little bit sooner, during what would have been my junior year in high school, was very helpful in many ways. Because of Running Start, I was able to complete my associate’s degree at the same time I would normally have been finishing high school, thus being basically two years ahead on my education. I highly recommend the program to anyone who can do it! —Isaac

ASSISTANT DEAN’S MESSAGE

Joal Lee

Though February is the shortest month, it can feel like the longest. It arrives during the post-holiday doldrums when it might seem there isn’t much to look forward to. Winter still hasn’t ended; the flowering plants haven’t yet begun to poke out of the earth. The days are still short and the nights long. We do celebrate Presidents Day and Valentine’s Day in February, but for many people these holidays are somewhat anticlimactic. Since my days in elementary school, when we would try to express secret adoration through romantic-themed Garfield and He-Man cards and candy hearts inscribed with inane messages such as “Be Mine” and “Fax Me,” I haven’t really cared much about Valentine’s Day. But I’m trying to see this holiday in a new light, not as a holiday of infatuation, but as a holiday celebrating love. And love is something I can get behind. Love is powerful. In a speech he gave in 1967, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr spoke to the power of love when he said “I have…decided to stick with love, for I know that love is ultimately the only answer to mankind’s problems… [H]ate is too great a burden to bear. I have decided to love.” And so, I wish all of us a happy February, a meaningful Valentine’s Day, and love.
