A MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR Motivation is the key to getting results. I’m not so sure that statement is accurate. It might be, but it really comes down to time, energy and resources. Most of us want specific good things for ourselves and our loved ones; this doesn’t need to be said, however, desires become a key factor in our motivation. If we want something enough we can start figuring out how to fund it, build it, where to put it and even how to use it. Wanting something enough will actually create the energy inside you to push for results. Maybe this is what motivation really is, the energy required or necessary to obtain a result. So, do we need to reduce some activities or behaviors in order to increase new or more desirable outcomes right? We only have 24 hours in the day and we all need sleep. Since it is recommended that we get 8 hours of sleep a day, we are starting off with only 2/3 of a day. If you are still working, there goes at least another third. Eating, caring for yourself and others, moving from place to place, cleaning and education will cost at least another 1/3 of our time. So where do we get the time? I’m not experienced enough for retirement and most of my retired friends tell me they are actually busier now than when they were working. I need to work because groceries and gas cost a lot of money. So maybe I/we just need to focus on our personal energy reserves. This summer, let’s try to figure out what motivates us so we can create and focus more energy on the things that are really important. This is the act of prioritizing but, it really oversimplifies how crazy one’s life can become. So, thanks for reading this because I was really struggling with something positive to put in my quarterly message and couldn’t figure out why. I was unmotivated and procrastinating. I now can conclude that it was the weather and it really doesn’t matter if it is sunny or raining because there are so many things to get done and so little time. My only advice is to figure out what makes you happy and do more of that. Thanks and be happy, Jim Protiva Parks and Recreation Director j.protiva@newportoregon.gov

DO RE MI BY THE SEA

Fridays 10:00 – 10:45 am Session: June 20 – August 22 (no class July 4) Ages: birth - 5 $90.00/session – additional siblings $20.00 Instructors: Debbie and Bruce Cram We all know music is entertaining and we all have our favorite music and musicians. Music makes life more interesting and adds an emotional dimension to any event that greatly increases the effect of the experience. Can you imagine a movie or a political rally or almost any large event without music? So we all like music and understand its emotional impact, but more and more studies show a direct link between music and other learning. Children with music in their educational agenda may show increased math and language skills, as music learning supports all learning. And the most magical thing of all is that your child will love the music and the learning that it inspires. This program is a ten week class. Bruce and Debbie will provide everything that your child will need to participate. This is not a drop-off program, and you as a parent are the best teacher for your child. Come ready to sing and join the activities with your child and you will both have a great time. A younger sibling (8 months or younger) of a registered child may attend free. At least one parent or adult caregiver must accompany each family group. Bruce and Debbie’s goal is to provide music for young imaginations through research- based songs and activities. Their music and movement program is designed to provide musical magic for you and your child. Be ready to visit the music of various cultures around the world, play many different colorful instruments, take countless imaginary trips, feel the pulse of our gathering drums, dance with your Teddy bear or spin with a bright silk scarf, and sing the happy songs of our music collection. Come make music and make friends with Bruce and Debbie at Do Re Mi by the Sea. Feel free to give them a call at 541 961-6447. Debbie is retired from a nursing background. Her interest in music and dance goes back to her early teens when she learned to play her guitar and loved to sing folk songs. She sang in Sweet Adelines, was secretary for a local music club, violinist in a small weekly music group, and participated in several dance programs. Bruce has a background as an optician and worked for 30 years in that field. He has a BS degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Physics. He learned to play guitar in high school. His interest in music combines with his woodworking hobby, and he has made many instruments, including the mandolin and banjo Debbie will be using in class. He sees the elimination of music programs in public schools as a tragic misfortune and is pleased to bring music back into the lives of children.

It is called duplicate because the same bridge deal (i.e. the specific arrangement of the 52 cards into the four hands) is played at each table and scoring is based on relative performance.
