Free training is available for non-profits

Effective Organizations Train­ing is a free comprehensive program offered by the Ford Family Foundation to all community members interested in building strong organizations, particularly board members, staff and volunteers associated with a non-profit organization, membership group, agency, institution, or local government.

This dynamic, hands-on training will provide participants with many ideas and tools they can use with their own organizations. Subjects include: strategic planning, leadership and board effectiveness, resource development, financial management, volunteer/staff development and communicating your organization’s message. 

Trainers Mary Ward and Roi Crouch each have over 30 years’ experience working with the non-profit sector.

The 24-hour course is taught in four sessions held over two weekends, Oct. 16-17 and Nov. 13-14 at Howonquet Hall. Participants are strongly encouraged to attend all four sessions as each one lays the foundation for material that follows. 

For information call Alicia Flory at (541) 957-2574. To register online go to www.tfff.org/eo . The registration deadline is Oct. 9.

UC offers free online publications

Hundreds of free publications on topics ranging from gardening to agriculture, nutrition to food safety, are available for downloading from University of California’s  Web site, www.ucanr.org/freepubs .

The publications are written by UC academics and meet the scholarly standard necessary to be considered “peer-reviewed.”

 The most frequently downloaded titles are featured and regularly updated. Subjects include facts about fats, compost in a hurry and safe methods to store, preserve and enjoy tomatoes.

The publications are available as PDFs. The site also provides links to related for-sale publications.

Piano concert today

60th season opens with Lithuanian immigrant

“Since I left the Soviet Union,” said pianist Rudolf Budginas in a recent interview, “I have all the freedom I want, and I like to ‘push the envelope.’” In his concerts, his goal is to “break the wall between the artist onstage and the audience.”  

“I make it very casual and personal, like in a living room,” he said.

Another approach he uses for a part of the concert is to play some ‘crossover’ classical pieces “wrapped in different genres, mixed in with some spangle, blues, world or Latin,” he said. “I’m gonna shock everybody!”

Getting to the point

Traverse the rocks or stroll the bluffs—but be careful

Viewed from the south, it juts into the sea, the seemingly straight edge an exception to the graceful curves that define most of our crescent-strewn coastline.

The first time I saw Point St. George, I couldn’t help but wonder how hard it would be to traverse the length of its rocky finger perennially pointed into the Pacific. Impossible at high tide and not that easy at low tide, it turned out, but that’s getting ahead of the story.

This installment of Walk Your World doesn’t contain many specific trail directions, because there are so many ways to experience Point St. George. What it does contain is a healthy dose of cautionary notes, because whether you choose to go high on the bluffs or low on the rocks, this place can be hazardous.
