They did not have Halloween in New Jersey last Wednes day night. Governor Chris Christie postponed it by executive order until Monday. However, he did spend the day scaring Republicans by praising President Obama. JAY LENOThe East Coast is still dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Because of congestion, Mayor Bloomberg is only allowing cars with at least three passengers to drive into Manhattan. You cant cross the bridge with a bunch of empty seats which was really confusing for Clint Eastwood. JIMMY F ALLONEconomists say rebuilding after Hurricane Sandy will give the ailing construction industry a huge boost. In fact, the storm has already created more jobs than President Obama. JAY LENOThe International Olympic Committee is investigating Lance Armstrong for the bronze medal he won at the 2000 Olympics. A little tip for the IOC: If Lance was on steroids and he came in third, you might want to take a peek at the guys with gold and silver. CONAN OBRIENMichael Brown, the former director of FEMA who was forced to resign after Hurricane Katrina, has criticized the president. He said Obama may have acted too quickly this time instead of taking the wait-and-do-nothing approach that worked so well during Katrina. JIMMY KIMMELThe latest James Bond movie, Skyfall, is really good but theres a bit of a controversy now because of product place ment. Like instead of his signature martini, Bond now drinks Heineken. Thats not the only example 007 is now 00711. JAY LENOMayor Bloomberg has canceled this years New York City Marathon. Its just as well as it was going to be extra tough on the runners since Bloomberg was going to require them to carry three other runners just to get into the city. JIMMY F ALLONHalloween night I answered the door and there was a kid lying on the porch. He was playing dead. I said: What are you supposed to be? He said: the economy. JAY LENOEveryone is asking how this storm is going to affect the election. I think its given Obama momentum because of how he handled it. He approached it so differently than Bush; he showed up. BILL MAHERA 108-year-old woman in South Carolina just hower but still, good for her. JIMMY F ALLONDuring the storm a tree hit Lindsay Lohans family home in Long Island. But they think it was just nature getting back at her for all the trees she ran into with her car. JAY LENONew Jersey is in bad shape. Governor Christie announced water restrictions. No one is allowed to water their lawns, but they just got 18 feet of water so that seems like a reason able request. JIMMY KIMMELOabmas been getting bipartisan praise for how he handled the hurricane. Even Fox News tried to praise it. Of course, theyre hearts not in it. The best they could do was Pat Buchana said, Youre doing a heck of a job, Brownie.

Journal EditorVeterans Day has a special meaning for a 79-year-old Blountstown woman whose beloved brother lived only a short time but had a big impact on her life. brother, James Cooper, were born only 14 months apart. The family moved around a lot in those days and lived in several places including Frink, Kinard and Port St. Joe. He was the eldest; she younger brothers. James and his father didnt get along and he convinced his mother to let him enlist in the Army. It was 1947. He was 15. He left Frink School and signed up to serve his country. They might have decided to say he was 18, his sister told The Journal. After training, James was sent to Japan and then went to Korea, where he served in the infantry. He was driving an ammunition truck to the front for the men when something blew up, his sister said. He was hospitalized and after his recovery, returned to the U.S. in 1951. He had already made the deci sion to re-enlist when he caught a ride with another man from their base back to Florida in February 1952. He was a passenger in a vehicle that ran off an overpass in McRae, GA. He died after suffering head injuries. Me and my brother werent together very long, but he made such an impression on me and we were really close, his sister said.

When he was 15 or 16, my Uncle James had coal black hair and was very handsome. Girls would swarm around him...He looked like Elvis, said Perkins. My mother still talks about him all the time.

Air Force Base goes over Halls home. Yes, theyre at night every once in a while, Hall said about the massive aircraft, but the noise doesnt bother him. Thats the sound of Freedom, he said. The Osprey is a tilt-rotor aircraft which takes off and lands like a helicopter and operates as a turboprop of one of Hurlburt Fields CV-22 Ospreys just a few months ago, I saw a need for an informal training on what to do if one went down in our area, said Hall. Five airmen onboard an Osprey were injured in a June 13 crash during a training mission north of Navarre. Hall spoke with James Mills of Joint Southeast Training, Research and Integration Capability (JSTRIC), who manages the military training facility on Flatwoods Road near Altha, about setting up a visit of the aircraft. Three weeks later, Mills called Hall and told him, Gather all your guys and be at the airport tomorrow at 1:30 p.m. Theyre bringing an Osprey for you all to look it. Local firefighters met at the Calhoun County Airport off SR 71 on Oct. 23 and were waiting as the huge aircraft landed. The aircrew took us through the aircraft, which is absolutely amazing, and showed us all of the safety features, what to do in the event of a crash, and what NOT to do, said Hall. At the end of the tour we left with a better understanding of the aircraft and their mission.TOP: The Osprey arrives at the Calhoun County Airport.

In this months column, I cover almost everything you need to know about general gun, fall turkey, quail, snipe and the second phase of mourning and whitewinged dove season. pick up a $17 Florida resident hunting license. Nonresidents pay $46.50 for a 10-day license or $151.50 for 12 months. If you plan to hunt one of Floridas many wildlife management areas (WMAs), youll also need a $26.50 management area permit, but dont for get to study the brochure for the specific area you plan to hunt, because dates, bag limits and rules differ greatly from area to area. You can get these brochures at tax the WMA, or you can download them from MyFWC.com/Hunting. You can buy your license and per mits by calling 888-HUNT-FLORIDA or going online at License.MyFWC. com. Have your credit card ready. You also can purchase them from tax collec The general gun season runs Nov. 3 Jan. 20 in Zone C; Dec. 1 Feb. 17 in Zone B; and in Zone A, the second phase of general gun season runs Nov. 17 Jan. 6. In Zone D, it starts Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 22) and lasts four days until Nov. 25. Two weeks later, the season reopens Dec. 8 and runs through Feb. 17. Hunters can take bucks having at but anyone hunting deer in Florida must have the $5 deer permit. On private lands, the daily bag limit for deer is two, but during some quota hunts on WMAs, the bag limit is only one deer and in some cases, there are antler restrictions, so read the particular WMA brochure before you hunt. On private lands, hunters can take wild hogs year-round with no bag or size limits. On most but not all WMAs, theres also no bag or size limit on wild hogs, and hunters can take them during any hunting season except spring tur key. Again, check the WMA brochure to be certain. The highly anticipated antlerless deer season, often called doe week, is Nov. 17-23 (Thanksgiving week) in zones A and C and it always runs Dec. 26 Jan. 1 (Christmas week) in zones B and D. During doe week, the daily bag limit is one buck and one doe, or two bucks. You may not take two does in one day like you can during archery season and spotted fawns are never legal game. By the way, WMAs do not have an antlerless deer season. If you hunt with deer dogs anywhere in Florida, special rules and registration requirements may apply, so call the FWC for details. Fall turkey season in Zone A is Nov. 17 Jan. 6. In zones B and C, it runs Dec. 1 Jan. 27 and Nov. 3 Dec. 30, respectively. And in Zone D, fall turkey season is Nov. 22-25 and Dec. 8 Jan. 13, except for Holmes County, where there is no fall turkey season. Only bearded turkeys and gobblers are legal game; you must have a turkey permit ($10 for residents; $125 for nonresidents) to hunt them. The bag limit is one bird per day and a total of two during the archery, crossbow, muzzle loading gun and fall turkey seasons combined. Quail season runs statewide Nov. 10 March 3 and the daily bag limit is 12. Shooting hours for deer, turkey and quail are a half-hour before sunrise to shotguns, muzzleloaders, bows, crossbows and pistols are legal for taking these resident game animals during the general gun, antlerless deer, fall turkey and quail seasons. Snipe hunting in Florida ranks second in the nation in number of birds harvested each year, and the season always runs Nov. 1 Feb. 15 statewide. The second phase of the mourning and white-winged dove season also comes in this month and runs Nov. 10-25. Shooting hours for migratory game birds are one-half hour before sunrise to sunset. The bag limit for snipe is eight; for doves, the bag limit is 15. You must get a no-cost migratory bird permit if you plan to hunt snipe, doves or any other migratory game birds. The FWC even provides an online Dove Hunters Hotline, which gives up-to-date information on Floridas FWC.com/Dove, and it is updated every Thursday throughout dove season. Information includes dove densities, ditions. Whether small-game hunting with friends and family or hunting solo, going after that monster buck, boar hog or big tom, November brings loads of great hunting opportunities.

I explained that the annual hunting trip was a tradition for some of my brothers and me, and I thought she might enjoy it as well. To my surprise, she agreed and seemed really excited by the idea. Now, Mary was by no means a woods-person, so I should have suspected something was wrong right then. But it was only when I mentioned bringing a tent that I realized we were facing a major communications different ideas about the meaning of the word camp. Thats because in Marys world, going to the camp meant staying at her Uncle Sid and Aunt Millicents summer/ weekend home in Pass Christian, Mississippi. Their camp was actually a nice, brick home that featured multiple bedrooms, central air and a heated pool. (If you ever went to one of the camps my father built, you already see where this is headed.) Why do we need a tent? she asked. Arent we staying in the camp? The question was as innocent to her as it was ridiculous to me. What? You mean inside the camp? Oh, @ # $ % no! I said. My skin crawled just thinking about it. I mean it was physically possible to stay inside at either the old camp or the new one. Just like its physically possible both cases, the real question is why you would want to. For those who never saw them, picture the housing in Slumdog Millionaire as a point of reference. Now, understand that our new camp was the kind of place where their poorer relatives in the country would have lived. And those folks would have donated their last rupee to someone staying in our old camp. The truth is, both places would have been condemned by a blind Tijuana building inspector. For one thing, we had long ago handed over the old camp to the wood rats in something of a land-for-peace deal. As I discussed in an earlier post, my over the bedroom. From there, we retreated onto the porch for piece of property altogether. The new camp offered a couple of advantages, including its convenient location on property we actually own. It was also closer to the water, so the moccasins cut down on the number of rats who lived there. Another advantage was that it had walls on only three sides. That made it much more convenient if you had to bolt outside in stark terror when some critter wanted to share your sleeping bag. I explained to Mary that, in our world, the word camp was more a geographical reference than an architectural one. And staying inside was a (distant) fourth choice for ways to spend the night down there. A tent was the best option because you could pick it up and shake it out. Once inside, you could zip it up and be pretty well assured that nothing was going to come in. (Although that didnt mean rats, coons and possums wouldnt scratch around the outside all night.) If you didnt have a tent, the next best choice was to build a big fire and curl up on the long enough to let you get to sleep. And when the animals do show up, at least youre not trapped inside with them. Even sleeping in your car is a superior way to spend a night there. Sure, you may be cramped and either sweating or freezing, but depending on the condition of your ride, you can be pretty sure nothing will get in it with you. In fact, as I thought about it good reasons to stay inside the camp were: You were severely injured there and couldnt move; someone was actively shooting at you; and/or you suffered from a crippling case of agoraphobia Nevertheless, Im proud to say that Mary did go and she was a trouper throughout most of the trip. And I give a lot of credit to my brother Bill for helping her adjust. He was very reassuring, letting her know that there was really nothing in the swamp to worry about. He explained that, despite our kidding, the animals down in the woods were far more scared of us than we are of them. All except for those damned They can get pretty nasty. That was 21 years ago. But, spending time in the woods remains a strong family tradition. Believe it or not, its a tradition that Mary now enjoys even more as she listens to the stories and looks at the pictures I bring home with me.COMMUNICATIONS 101:Mary meets the Camp JIM McCLELLANS OUTDOORSDown South Picture the housing in Slumdog Millionaire as a point of reference.

We all will remain forever changed due to STEM and I would highly recommend supporting them in different missions to spread the good news, said Calen Masai, a junior at Blountstown High School in Calhoun County. Masai was one of several students who shared STEM Scholars experiences at a recent FloridaLearns STEM Scholars Regional Advisory Board meeting. The Advisory boards allow public and private sector STEM related organiza tions to provide input and guidance into the program. As part of the curriculum, students attend forums and work in teams to solve a problem using Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Skills. I can tell you firsthand that the projects push us every way possible. From building balloon or mousetrap-powered cars to constructing wooden towers; STEM has a way of making things inter esting while secretly exposing us to STEM related careers, Masai added. Calen is one of 22 students selected by the Calhoun County School District to participate in year one of the rural regional educational consortia through a Florida Department of Education, Race to the Top funded project to the Panhandle Area Educational Consor tium and its partners. It addresses the need for some of Floridas most under served students, the gifted and talented students from the 27 small and rural school districts within the partnership, to have increased access to STEM-related courses and rigorous and challenging authentic learning experiences. Goals of the initiative align with key goals of Floridas Chamber Foundation; those of ensuring our state can successfully recruit, train and retain STEM talent for Floridas economic future. Students who are participating in the project from our area are served by the Panhandle Area Educational Consortium (PAEC). At the close of his presentation, Masai told the advisory board, If STEM affected this small rag tag group of students in such a mighty way, picture what it could do for generations to come. STEM has done nothing but inspire students to consider careers. I do not know about you but right now, we could use some more bright educated people seeking to make this world a better place. For additional information about the project check out the website at www.

ConanONAN OBrienRIENMichael Brown, the former director of F FEMA who was forced to resign after Hurricane Katrina, has criticized the president. He said Obama may have acted too quickly this time instead of taking the wait-and-do-nothing approach that worked so well during Katrina. JIMMY KIMMELThe latest James Bond movie, SSkyfall, is really good but theres a bit of a controversy now because of product placement. Like instead of his signature martini, Bond now drinks Heineken.

Journal EditorVeterans Day has a special meaning for a 79-year-old Blountstown woman whose beloved brother lived only a short time but had a big impact on her life. brother, James Cooper, were born only 14 months apart. The family moved around a lot in those days and lived in several places including Frink, Kinard and Port St. Joe. He was the eldest; she younger brothers. James and his father didnt get along and he convinced his mother to let him enlist in the Army. It was 1947. He was 15. He left Frink School and signed up to serve his country. They might have decided to say he was 18, his sister told The Journal. After training, James was sent to Japan and then went to Korea, where he served in the infantry. He was driving an ammunition truck to the front for the men when something blew up, his sister said. He was hospitalized and after his recovery, returned to the U.S. in 1951. He had already made the decision to re-enlist when he caught a ride with another man from their base back to Florida in February 1952. He was a passenger in a vehicle that ran off an overpass in McRae, GA. He died after suffering head injuries. Me and my brother werent together very long, but he made such an impression on me and we were really close, his sister said. Thats why getting replacements for some long lost medals meant the world to her. Her daughter, Lois Perkins of Port St. Joe, contacted Congressman they responded. Southerland came to her home on Fourth Street last month to make the presentation, bringing her the Purple Heart and three other medals commemorating her brothers time in service. I was so happy to get all of this, Ms. Eunice said about the medals, which included a National Defense Medal and a Korean Service Medal. When he was 15 or 16, my Uncle James had coal black hair and was very handsome. Girls would swarm around him...He looked like Elvis, said Perkins. My mother still talks about him all the time. Ms. Eunice was married to the Florida State Park system. He served as Park Manager at before he retired in 1992. He passed away in 2000.Southerland presents medals to sister of veteran from Frink TO ONY SHOEMOEMAKEE PHOOTO OSSchool programs and our veterans TALLAHASSEE In honor of our nations veterans and active military personnel, day-use entry will be free to everyone at Floridas state parks on Veterans Day, Sunday, Nov. 11. the Three Soldiers Detail statue at Orman House Historic State Park.

Air Force Base goes over Halls home. Yes, theyre at night every once in a while, Hall said about the massive aircraft, but the noise doesnt bother him. Thats the sound of Freedom, he said. The Osprey is a tilt-rotor aircraft which takes off and lands like a helicopter and operates as a turboprop of one of Hurlburt Fields CV-22 Ospreys just a few months ago, I saw a need for an informal training on what to do if one went down in our area, said Hall. Five airmen onboard an Osprey were injured in a June 13 crash during a training mission north of Navarre. Hall spoke with James Mills of Joint Southeast Training, Research and Integration Capability (JSTRIC), who manages the military training facility on Flatwoods Road near Altha, about setting up a visit of the aircraft. Three weeks later, Mills called Hall and told him, Gather all your guys and be at the airport tomorrow at 1:30 p.m. Theyre bringing an Osprey for you all to look it. Local firefighters met at the Calhoun County Airport off SR 71 on Oct. 23 and were waiting as the huge aircraft landed. The aircrew took us through the aircraft, which is absolutely amazing, and showed us all of the safety features, what to do in the event of a crash, and what NOT to do, said Hall. At the end of the tour we left with a better understanding of the aircraft and their mission.TOP: The Osprey arrives at the Calhoun County Airport.

In this months column, I cover almost everything you need to know about general gun, fall turkey, quail, snipe and the second phase of mourning and whitewinged dove season. pick up a $17 Florida resident hunting license. Nonresidents pay $46.50 for a 10-day license or $151.50 for 12 months. If you plan to hunt one of Floridas many wildlife management areas (WMAs), youll also need a $26.50 management area permit, but dont forget to study the brochure for the specific area you plan to hunt, because dates, bag limits and rules differ greatly from area to area. You can get these brochures at tax the WMA, or you can download them from MyFWC.com/Hunting. You can buy your license and permits by calling 888-HUNT-FLORIDA or going online at License.MyFWC. com. Have your credit card ready. You also can purchase them from tax collecThe general gun season runs Nov. 3 Jan. 20 in Zone C; Dec. 1 Feb. 17 in Zone B; and in Zone A, the second phase of general gun season runs Nov. 17 Jan. 6. In Zone D, it starts Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 22) and lasts four days until Nov. 25. Two weeks later, the season reopens Dec. 8 and runs through Feb. 17. Hunters can take bucks having at but anyone hunting deer in Florida must have the $5 deer permit. On private lands, the daily bag limit for deer is two, but during some quota hunts on WMAs, the bag limit is only one deer and in some cases, there are antler restrictions, so read the particular WMA brochure before you hunt. On private lands, hunters can take wild hogs year-round with no bag or size limits. On most but not all WMAs, theres also no bag or size limit on wild hogs, and hunters can take them during any hunting season except spring turkey. Again, check the WMA brochure to be certain. The highly anticipated antlerless deer season, often called doe week, is Nov. 17-23 (Thanksgiving week) in zones A and C and it always runs Dec. 26 Jan. 1 (Christmas week) in zones B and D. During doe week, the daily bag limit is one buck and one doe, or two bucks. You may not take two does in one day like you can during archery season and spotted fawns are never legal game. By the way, WMAs do not have an antlerless deer season. If you hunt with deer dogs anywhere in Florida, special rules and registration requirements may apply, so call the FWC for details. Fall turkey season in Zone A is Nov. 17 Jan. 6. In zones B and C, it runs Dec. 1 Jan. 27 and Nov. 3 Dec. 30, respectively. And in Zone D, fall turkey season is Nov. 22-25 and Dec. 8 Jan. 13, except for Holmes County, where there is no fall turkey season. Only bearded turkeys and gobblers are legal game; you must have a turkey permit ($10 for residents; $125 for nonresidents) to hunt them. The bag limit is one bird per day and a total of two during the archery, crossbow, muzzleloading gun and fall turkey seasons combined. Quail season runs statewide Nov. 10 March 3 and the daily bag limit is 12. Shooting hours for deer, turkey and quail are a half-hour before sunrise to shotguns, muzzleloaders, bows, crossbows and pistols are legal for taking these resident game animals during the general gun, antlerless deer, fall turkey and quail seasons. Snipe hunting in Florida ranks second in the nation in number of birds harvested each year, and the season always runs Nov. 1 Feb. 15 statewide. The second phase of the mourning and white-winged dove season also comes in this month and runs Nov. 10-25. Shooting hours for migratory game birds are one-half hour before sunrise to sunset. The bag limit for snipe is eight; for doves, the bag limit is 15. You must get a no-cost migratory bird permit if you plan to hunt snipe, doves or any other migratory game birds. The FWC even provides an online Dove Hunters Hotline, which gives up-to-date information on Floridas FWC.com/Dove, and it is updated every Thursday throughout dove season. Information includes dove densities, ditions. Whether small-game hunting with friends and family or hunting solo, going after that monster buck, boar hog or big tom, November brings loads of great hunting opportunities.

I explained that the annual hunting trip was a tradition for some of my brothers and me, and I thought she might enjoy it as well. To my surprise, she agreed and seemed really excited by the idea. Now, Mary was by no means a woods-person, so I should have suspected something was wrong right then. But it was only when I mentioned bringing a tent that I realized we were facing a major communications different ideas about the meaning of the word camp. Thats because in Marys world, going to the camp meant staying at her Uncle Sid and Aunt Millicents summer/ weekend home in Pass Christian, Mississippi. Their camp was actually a nice, brick home that featured multiple bedrooms, central air and a heated pool. (If you ever went to one of the camps my father built, you already see where this is headed.) Why do we need a tent? she asked. Arent we staying in the camp? The question was as innocent to her as it was ridiculous to me. What? You mean inside the camp? Oh, @ # $ % no! I said. My skin crawled just thinking about it. I mean it was physically possible to stay inside at either the old camp or the new one. Just like its physically possible both cases, the real question is why you would want to. For those who never saw them, picture the housing in Slumdog Millionaire as a point of reference. Now, understand that our new camp was the kind of place where their poorer relatives in the country would have lived. And those folks would have donated their last rupee to someone staying in our old camp. The truth is, both places would have been condemned by a blind Tijuana building inspector. For one thing, we had long ago handed over the old camp to the wood rats in something of a land-for-peace deal. As I discussed in an earlier post, my over the bedroom. From there, we retreated onto the porch for piece of property altogether. The new camp offered a couple of advantages, including its convenient location on property we actually own. It was also closer to the water, so the moccasins cut down on the number of rats who lived there. Another advantage was that it had walls on only three sides. That made it much more convenient if you had to bolt outside in stark terror when some critter wanted to share your sleeping bag. I explained to Mary that, in our world, the word camp was more a geographical reference than an architectural one. And staying inside was a (distant) fourth choice for ways to spend the night down there. A tent was the best option because you could pick it up and shake it out. Once inside, you could zip it up and be pretty well assured that nothing was going to come in. (Although that didnt mean rats, coons and possums wouldnt scratch around the outside all night.) If you didnt have a tent, the next best choice was to build a big fire and curl up on the long enough to let you get to sleep. And when the animals do show up, at least youre not trapped inside with them. Even sleeping in your car is a superior way to spend a night there. Sure, you may be cramped and either sweating or freezing, but depending on the condition of your ride, you can be pretty sure nothing will get in it with you. In fact, as I thought about it good reasons to stay inside the camp were: You were severely injured there and couldnt move; someone was actively shooting at you; and/or you suffered from a crippling case of agoraphobia Nevertheless, Im proud to say that Mary did go and she was a trouper throughout most of the trip. And I give a lot of credit to my brother Bill for helping her adjust. He was very reassuring, letting her know that there was really nothing in the swamp to worry about. He explained that, despite our kidding, the animals down in the woods were far more scared of us than we are of them. All except for those damned They can get pretty nasty. That was 21 years ago. But, spending time in the woods remains a strong family tradition. Believe it or not, its a tradition that Mary now enjoys even more as she listens to the stories and looks at the pictures I bring home with me.COMMUNICATIONS 101:Mary meets the Camp JIM McCLELLANS OUTDooOORsSDown South Picture the housing in Slumdog Millionaire as a point of reference.

THEREERE WILLILL BE BE NOO A AUCCTIOION! 11-7, 11-14The FloridaLearns STEM Scholars Initiative for gifted and talented students is having an impact on high school students participating in the program. We all will remain forever changed due to STEM and I would highly recommend supporting them in different missions to spread the good news, said Calen Masai, a junior at Blountstown High School in Calhoun County. Masai was one of several students who shared STEM Scholars experiences at a recent FloridaLearns STEM Scholars Regional Advisory Board meeting. The Advisory boards allow public and private sector STEM related organizations to provide input and guidance into the program. As part of the curriculum, students attend forums and work in teams to solve a problem using Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Skills. I can tell you firsthand that the projects push us every way possible. From building balloon or mousetrap-powered cars to constructing wooden towers; STEM has a way of making things interesting while secretly exposing us to STEM related careers, Masai added. Calen is one of 22 students selected by the Calhoun County School District to participate in year one of the rural regional educational consortia through a Florida Department of Education, Race to the Top funded project to the Panhandle Area Educational Consortium and its partners.  It addresses the need for some of Floridas most under served students, the gifted and talented students from the 27 small and rural school districts within the partnership, to have increased access to STEM-related courses and rigorous and challenging authentic learning experiences. Goals of the initiative align with key goals of Floridas Chamber Foundation; those of ensuring our state can successfully recruit, train and retain STEM talent for Floridas economic future.  Students who are participating in the project from our area are served by the Panhandle Area Educational Consortium (PAEC). At the close of his presentation, Masai told the advisory board, If STEM affected this small rag tag group of students in such a mighty way, picture what it could do for generations to come. STEM has done nothing but inspire students to consider careers. I do not know about you but right now, we could use some more bright educated people seeking to make this world a better place.
