COMMISSIONER CORNER As the newest commissioner of the Richland Arts Commission, I am eagerly learning just how many opportunities we have to enjoy public art in this city. Have you ever strolled through our city parks to see many sculptures? Or visited the library or community center to see the pieces displayed in hallways and gathering spaces? Have you attended an event at the Hapo Community Stage? Or shopped at the Artisan Market on Fridays in John Dam Plaza? Though these are just a few of the many options to view art in this city, I hope you are able to engage in these opportunities to witness public art in Richland. To offer even more public art opportunities to the citizens of Richland, the Richland Arts Commission has several subcommittees actively working on local projects. One subcommittee is supporting the Arts Foundation of the MidColumbia to bring a Musical Plaza with interactive percussion instruments to Howard Amon Park. Another subcommittee just help complete the needed input on the design elements of the upcoming Duportail Bridge and is now beginning research on design elements to bring to the future traffic circles. And even another subcommittee is talking with the design team of the new City Hall to incorporate artist elements into the new facility. As you can see, we are actively working to support our city with as much public art as possible. As the Managing Director of the Academy of Children's Theatre, I have the lucky opportunity to watch our future generation practice art daily. The children who participate in the various productions and classes have a focus and energy that I hope will build influential and passionate community members and maybe even future Richland Arts Commissioners! Art comes in many shapes and sizes. It can be hung on a wall, sung in a song, or danced on a stage and the City of Richland has all of those opportunities just waiting for you! So go find some art! Anne Spilman Arts Commissioner

Fit Moms with Abigail Class starts with introductions and warm up which is 5-8 minutes long. Introduce yourself and your children while slowly warming up the muscles and working up the heart rate. Moms will then power walk or jog to the next exercise station. The level of intensity is up to the participant and we offer different modifications based on their specific needs. For safety and liability the children remain fastened into their strollers for the duration of the workout. If at any point the child needs to be attended to (nurse, diaper, tantrum) the mother is more than welcome to pause and tend to the child. Our different exercise stations will target different areas to offer a balanced full-body workout in every class. As a unique fitness solution for moms we incorporate the children to the workout through singing songs, blowing bubbles, reading stories, playing with puppets and other stimulating activities. For all detailed information and to register go to: www.richland.fit4mom.com

COLUMBIA POINT GOLF COURSE

25

First Green of Washington Links as Labs www.thefirstgreen.org Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Carl Thompson and I’m the Certified Golf Course Superintendent at Columbia Point Golf Course here in Richland. I recently joined the First Green of Washington Links as Labs program. I’m looking to partner with local teachers in using Columbia Point as an outdoor classroom for your STEM curriculum. The First Green was established to provide and promote environmental education. They connect educators with superintendents to host outdoor ‘learning labs’ on their golf courses. This type of lab allows students to perform hands-on experiments and tests within the focus of the school’s environmental science and horticulture curriculum. The First Green was founded in 1997 in the greater Seattle area. This organization achieved tremendous popularity and quickly gained the support of national, regional and local groups. Currently there are programs in Washington, Oregon, California, New Jersey, Florida and British Columbia. There are a number of different topics you can choose for these learning stations– it all depends on your specific agenda. I’ve been provided a Resource Kit with additional lesson plans available on the First Green website. These plans are flexible and easily combined in various ways. Some examples of lesson plans include:    

Measuring irregular areas such as putting green square footage. Volume Calculations – for instance how much sand is needed to topdress a green to a ¼ inch depth? Using a soil sieve device to determine percentages of sand, silt and clay. Testing water quality and pH.

Call today and I’ll include a fun golf activity for your kids. When the lesson is over they can participate in a putting contest. Give your kids a field trip they’ll never forget!

Sports Concussion and Head Injuries (Zachary Lystedt Law) A concussion is a brain injury and all brain injuries are serious. They are caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head or by a blow to another part of the body with the force transmitted to the head. They can range from mild to severe and can disrupt the way the brain normally works. Even though most concussions are mild, all concussions are potentially serious and may result in complications including prolonged brain damage and death if not recognized and managed properly. In other words, even a “ding” or bump on the head can be serious. You can’t see a concussion and most sports concussions occur without loss of consciousness. Signs and symptoms of concussion may show up right after the injury, or can take hours to fully appear. If your child reports any symptoms of concussion, or if you notice the symptoms or signs of concussion yourself, seek attention right away. For current and up-todate information on concussions go to: www.cdc.gov/concussion Photo Release Photographs of participants may be taken for promotional purposes. Please notify staff or photographer if you do not wish to have your photograph taken.
