DIRECTOR’S MESSAGE It’s my pleasure this month to introduce our new Recreation and Facilities Manager, Julie Jackson. Julie comes to Richland from the City & Borough of Juneau, Alaska, where she has worked for nine years; first as the Youth & Community Outreach Coordinator at the City’s Eaglecrest Ski Area, and most recently as Aquatic Manager at the City’s two indoor facilities. Julie was a member of Juneau’s leadership program prepping her to be a senior manager as part of an internal succession planning program. Prior to joining Juneau she was a lead dispatcher for a commercial marine tour operator and expediter for another working in Alaska’s popular tourism industry. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Ski Area Business Management from Northern Michigan University in addition to several relevant professional credentials. On her downtime Julie enjoys winter sports, kayaking, hiking, riding bicycles and road trips; something she hasn’t done much in the last decade because of Juneau’s isolated road system. Julie’s responsibilities will include oversight and management of the Richland Community Center, George Prout Pool, various City-initiated special events, private rental agreements, youth athletics, public art, and will be the liaison to many internal and external stakeholders. I’ve written in past messages about our focus on hospitality and providing exceptional value to our taxpayers. I believe Richland has found an individual that fits our model perfectly and I hope you agree. Please, stop by the Richland Community Center and say hi to Julie. Have a great Spring and I look forward to another successful season of park management, operations and programming.

Joe Schiessl Director of Parks & Public Facilities

The Urban Greenbelt Trail

Mid-Century Modern Tours

Instructor: Volunteer This volunteer led walk will follow Richland’s Urban Greenbelt Trail (UGT), an urban path that encircles the central city. Along the way, we’ll talk about the City’s history and look at pictures of Richland in earlier days. Hikes are weather permitting. Please check the website or Facebook page to confirm.

While many people are familiar with Richland’s alphabet houses, few people realize that the city is also home to a significant number of mid-century modern houses. This volunteer-led walk will wander through North Richland looking at some of the more interesting examples of this international style.

COLUMBIA POINT GOLF COURSE 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! Carl Thompson, CGCS Columbia Point Golf Course 509-946-1074 Cell 509-438-5185 cthompson@playcolumbiapoint.com

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-to-date 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.
