Recovery & renewal

We are heating up our Winter term with a variety of new noncredit community education and small business-focused classes and workshops that everyone in the community is welcome to attend! New for Winter 2022 are a number of exciting courses, from Mah Jongg to beekeeping, and lots in-between. With the devastation of the Echo Mountain Complex Fire still fresh in all our memories, our new partnership with a local CERT group (facing page) presents you with an opportunity to get involved and help your neighbors bounce back from whatever comes next. And, you can learn more about how Otis fire survivors are being assisted, and how you can help that ongoing work (see page 9).

Community Education Classes Introduction to 3-D Printing

We may not yet have reached the point where atop every kitchen counter sits a toaster, a microwave – and a 3-D printer. But, that day is coming. When Lindsey Johnson leapt into action at the dawn of the pandemic, and produced thousands of face shields for local health care providers using 3-D printers he set up at OCCC, he proved the technology has real, immediate, practical uses.

Printers like those he uses cost hundreds, rather than thousands, of dollars today, and the technology is becoming ever more accessible. In this workshop, you'll discover the principles behind additive 3-D printing. Learn the basics of this emerging technology and discuss its many applications, both present and future. During the class, a 3-D printer in the classroom will be busily printing an item to be displayed and discussed before the end of the session.

You're CERT-ain to enjoy serving your community! COMMUNITY EMERGENCY RESPONSE TEAM The CERT program educates volunteers about disaster preparedness for the hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. CERT offers a consistent, nationwide approach to volunteer training and organization that professional responders can rely on during disaster situations, which allows them to focus on more complex tasks. Through CERT, the capabilities to prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters is built and enhanced. About The CERT Training Class If available, emergency services personnel are the best trained and equipped to handle emergencies. Following a catastrophic disaster, however, you and your community may be isolated for an extended period for

a myriad of reasons, including the size of the area affected, inoperable communications systems, or impassable roads. CERT Basic Training prepares you to help yourself and help others in the event of a catastrophic disaster. Because emergency services personnel will not be able to help everyone immediately, you can make a difference by using your CERT training to save lives and protect property. This training covers basic skills that are important to know in a disaster when emergency services are not available. With training and practice, and by working as a team, you will be able to protect yourself and maximize your capability to help the greatest number

of people after a disaster. INSTRUCTOR: DAVID JAMIESON THURSDAYS, JANUARY 27 - MARCH 17 6 PM-8 PM LINCOLN CITY | FREE | REGISTER AT OREGONCOAST.EDU/COMMUNITYED

Beginning Guitar Instruction

In this popular class, beginning and intermediate students receive group instruction as well as one-on-one instruction at times, according to musical interests and level of ability. This method keeps students interested, which is key to maintain motivation. Instructor Richard Paris also happens to be one of the most calming, "chill" dudes you'll ever meet. We're not sure whether he gets such tremendous reviews from his students because they've mastered playing their favorite songs (something Richard works with each student to ensure), or if they simply love hanging out for an evening each week with such a relaxing individual.

Healthy Plant-Based Diet, Healthy Planet

Diseases which plague our populations, such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, are quite often food-born illnesses which are directly correlated with our Western diet of rich, animal-based and/or processed foods. These foods are virtually absent in a Whole-Food, Plant-Based (WFPB) diet which emphasizes whole (living) plantfoods. A multitude of empirical studies have indicated that whole plant foods have the potential to not only prevent but reverse and/ or improve these common disease processes. A plant-based lifestyle has the power to decimate one's eco-footprint and impact on our over-burdened healthcare system. This class will debunk modern myths about nutrition, show evidence of the healing power of plants, and provide practical methods to put you on a pathway towards plantbased living.

Sleep Well! Be Well!

Each of our bodily systems rely upon our ability to get adequate sleep to function properly. By contrast, quality sleep occurs when we have a functional balance within our bodily systems. Most sleep disorders are symptoms of a disruption within one or more of these bodily systems. This class explores our most common sleep disorders and their origins. By modifying our lifestyle choices, we can achieve a balance between good sleep and overall wellness.

Community Education Classes Beyond the Beach: Webinar Series Wraps Up with Kelp We all love Oregon’s public beaches, but there is so much more to our amazing coastline. A three-part virtual webinar series has been ongoing this Fall and Winter, to learn more about the resilience of our communities, special places along the coast, and mysterious undersea forests. Co-hosted by the Audubon Society of Lincoln City and Oregon Shores, this webinar series aims to inform and spark your curiosity. Earlier events have focused on King Tides, and on the state of protected rocky habitat along the Oregon Coast. Sara Hamilton The final session is entitled "Beyond the Beach: Mysterious Undersea Kelp Forests." This session is presented in partnership with Oregon Coast Community College, and is set for 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 12, and will be presented by Sara Hamilton and introduced by Jesse Jones of CoastWatch. Bull kelp are large seaweeds that grow in “forests,” forming canopies in the Oregon coast's rocky subtidal waters. They draw deep curiosity from scientists because of their immense contributions to ocean health, and their dwindling numbers around the world. Recently, 35 years of satellite imagery has led to new insights into how Oregon's kelp forests work and

10 oregon coast community college | winter 2022

how they are changing. Factors like climate change, heat waves, storms, disease, otters, and urchins are changing the landscape of Oregon's kelp forests. So what did Oregon's kelp forests used to look like, how are they doing today, and how can Oregonians influence what they will look like 100 years into the future? Sara Hamilton is a PhD student from Oregon State University, and a subtidal ecologist coadvised by Dr. Kirsten Grorud-Colvert and Dr. Bruce Menge. She studies kelp forest ecology in nearshore Oregon, focusing on population dynamics of bull kelp and trophic ecology of purple urchins. She is passionate about studying kelps and will share about current research conducted by divers on the southern Oregon coast, and about restoration and recovery of kelps in Oregon.

What will be your legacy? The following article was featured in the October edition of the Oregon Coast Community College Foundation's e-newsletter, The Rising Tide. The quarterly newsletter is emailed to friends of the College and anyone interested in the Foundation. It features profiles of students, faculty, donors, and College programs. To be added to the recipient list of this free newsletter, email Andrea Spirtos, OCCC Foundation Development Director, at andrea.spirtos@oregoncoast.edu.

In Oregon, you can also have what is called a “transfer on death” deed for your real property. You may need to get a lawyer involved as you will have to use the correct form and record it with the local property recorder. But it, too, is relatively simple. Upon death, the property skips probate and goes directly to the specified nonprofit. What is probably the most common way to make a planned gift, however, is to put it in your will or living trust. And there are several ways to do this. You can make a specific bequest (or distribution in a trust) of a fixed amount to your specified nonprofit or you can specify a certain percentage of your estate to benefit your specified nonprofit. And, if you are concerned that other gifts should take precedence (like to your children), you can name specific gifts to those others, and leave the nonprofit whatever is left. So, there is a lot of flexibility. You can also decide what the nonprofit should do with the money and you should put these instructions in your will or trust. You can make it a “general” gift and they will use it where it is most needed, or you can tell them to use it to support the nursing; or teaching program; or aquarium science program; or for scholarships to those most in need. It’s your legacy and you are in control. An estate planning attorney can help you write or amend your will or trust to be sure that your wishes are correctly documented. But please remember to tell the nonprofit about your planned gift. Every method mentioned above is revocable – you can always change your mind. But by letting the nonprofit know what you are planning, they will be on notice on how you want the money to be used and can also be better prepared to accept it. Finally, please also tell your other beneficiaries what you are doing. Let your children or siblings or whoever your heirs are know that you are leaving a planned gift as part of your legacy. It might even encourage them to do the same.

BY ANNETTE M. MULEE, OCCC Foundation Board Member It’s late Fall already. The holidays will be upon us in no time and then the year will be gone. In addition to all the holiday fun and planning, yearend is also the time for some introspection and financial planning. Have you thought about your legacy? Considered how you want to help future generations? What better life enhancer than education? Can your legacy include enhancing some person’s life by enabling education? You bet it can. “But wait,” you say, “I’m busy using my current assets to raise children and generally live my life!” Indeed. That’s why there is something called legacy or planned giving. It enables you to plan for a gift in the future, without using current assets in most instances. The only things we can be sure of in life, as the saying attributed to Mark Twain goes, are death and taxes. Planned giving will allow you to enhance your legacy after your death and may even help a little with your estate taxes, too. Where to start? How about with your goals and aspirations? Have you sometimes wished there were more and better nurses, teachers, or doctors in the world? More people doing scientific research or research into particular diseases? More people making more intuitive and easy-to-use phones and computers? I would like to THANK YOU for all the generosLifting people out of poverty? Education ity and care scholarship donors have. You have no can assist with all that, and you can assist idea the impact scholarships have had on my life. with education with a planned gift. Without scholarships, I would not have been able to The first and perhaps easiest way to afford school and accomplish my dreams. I have been make a planned gift is to name a charity fortunate enough to not have to pay much for college or educational institution as a benefiso far, and this is my 3rd year!! As I write this, I am a ciary on any financial account. Your bank first-year nursing student trying to figure out how to or financial institution can help you do manage this new level of schooling and I could not be this. Suppose you have a “rainy day” savmore thankful for people like you, who make this hapings account. Rather than have that pass pen for me. These funds allow me to focus on school through probate (if you have a will) or more, instead of worrying about financial struggles of through your living trust, you can simply college tuition and books. arrange to have the balance go to your Your kindness and generosity is so appreciated, thank selected nonprofit. You could even set you from the bottom of my heart <3 up such an account, keeping full control over it (in case you need the funds) until PS: The photo here also has my dog “Dixie Lynn” in your death, make deposits and then it.

Register: oregoncoast.edu/sbdc Starting an In-Home Childcare Business The OCCC Small Business Development Center, with support from Northwest Oregon Works, launched its first Childcare Startups four-part workshop in October 2021. The workshop, which returns this Winter, is designed to help launch new childcare businesses here in Lincoln County - and to help ensure their long-term success.

The four segments:

“The tight labor market we’ve seen in recent months is unprecedented,” said Misty Lambrecht, OCCC’s Small Business Management Coordinator and the creator of the childcare series. “There are myriad reasons for the difficulties local employers have had in finding and keeping good employees. One of these reasons, though, is the paucity of quality childcare - a shortage exacerbated by the pandemic. If this workshop can help launch even one home-based childcare business, that could mean as many as 10 workers could return to their jobs, secure in the knowledge that their children are safe and secure. And, the program can help would-be entrepreneurs launch their own successful businesses.”

(2) Operating Your Business in Lincoln County, with Misty Lambrecht

The program features an in-depth session on regulations, finance, and licensure, led by guest presenters from Linn-Benton Community College. Participants will also register for an infant and child CPR/First Aid session. Another session will feature general information about business formation, operations, marketing, and finances, led by Lambrecht. The remaining session focuses on insurance and legal considerations.

Is Childcare a good fit for YOU?

Just as not everyone can be an acrobat, or a pianist, or a swimming teacher, not everyone may be emotionally or physically able to care for children. Here are some things you might think about before deciding to make child care your profession. • Do I enjoy children and feel good about spending hours alone with them? • Can I view caring for children as my major responsibility during child care hours? • Do I have the patience and self control necessary to continue to give good quality child care even in very stressful situations? • Am I physically able to keep up with active children all day, 5 days (or more) a week? • Am I able to communicate with parents about such difficult subjects as their children’s behavior or an unpaid bill? • Am I able to do the record keeping that will enable my business to be successful? • Do I understand that child care is a business that will take time to build? (There is no instant income in child care!) • Am I able to provide enough safe space for active children both inside and outside? • Do I have (or can I get) enough age-appropriate toys and furniture for the children I plan to care for? • Am I willing to continue to grow and learn new and better ways to increase the quality of the child care I offer? • Is my family supportive of my child care business?

Achieving profitability is turning an important corner in your business. To explore your situation, we'll begin with an in-depth break-even analysis. Once that's complete, you'll have a solid foundation to begin exploring how to gauge your profitability ... and how to improve it. The class will take a guided deep dive into your company’s financials to better understand how you can work to improve profitability. Learn methods to help you forecast how simple price changes, additional employees, wages, or vendor price increases can impact your bottom line. We will discuss how to navigate seasonal cash flow variations, and will explore how changes in payment terms, credit-versus-cash transactions, and more can help you increase your overall profits.
