The scouts had to: locate an organization that needed birdhouses; meet with organizers to determine what to build; obtain plans and determine supplies needed; create a letter for solicitation of supplies; solicit for those supplies; locate someone to cut the lumber; assemble the birdhouses; and finally, install the birdhouses.

Services and supplies provided by Woody at Genesee Lumber, Park at ACE Hardware, Frank Kulikowski, of Frankly Design, and Bob Bathrick, master carpenter and cabinetmaker for TRB Bathrick.

Press release:

The Buffalo Sabres, the National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA), and the National Hockey League (NHL®) have announced the launch of a new hockey-themed educational course as part of the NHL & NHLPA Future Goals Program. Since its launch in September 2014, Future Goals™ has reached over 375,000 students across the United States and Canada in 3,500 schools and yielded over 1.5 million hours of STEM learning.

The Hockey Scholar™ course takes students on an exciting educational journey with a goal of winning the Stanley Cup. As they guide their team, students complete twelve learning modules that educate them and test their knowledge on core STEM concepts covering data analysis, geometry, life science and physical science topics. These topics come to life through real hockey examples that include the dynamics of the ice surface, equipment design, athletic performance, and geometric and energy considerations to how the game is played.

Hockey Scholar™ maps to state and provincial math and science standards as well as the national NGSS and CCSS Math standards. The course was developed by Washington, D.C.-based EverFi, the critical skills education leader that has certified more than 12 million learners.

“The level of engagement in this program from the league, the players, and their clubs is unprecedented in the sports world,” said EverFi Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer Jon Chapman. “What’s most important is how this partnership is making a difference for thousands of students and teachers across North America.”

Heather Cummings, sixth-grade Science Teacher at Alexander Central School District will begin using this program today, Oct. 28, with approximately 62 students. This summer, Shannon Whitcombe, Middle and High School Principal and avid Buffalo Sabres fan learned about the program during a meeting with EverFi, Inc. After this First Day Start, there will be over 3,000 students taking part in the Future Goals program locally in Buffalo-Niagara Region. Alexander will be the first Science department in Genesee County to begin utilizing this resource which is provided by the NHL, NHLPA and Buffalo Sabres at no cost to all area schools.

Press release:

The University of Rochester School of Nursing is offering 50-percent tuition support in scholarships for its Care Manager Education, RN-to-BS completion and Family Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner programs to meet the educational needs of health care employees in the Finger Lakes region.

Infusing the region with graduates from the three programs will directly fill gaps in care to help patients achieve better health outcomes.

Currently, there’s a rising demand for nurses resulting from a transformation of the region’s Medicaid health care delivery system, through the New York State Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) program, regionally organized by the Finger Lakes Performing Provider System (FLPPS).  New York State is using the DSRIP reform model to improve clinical outcomes and reduce avoidable ED use and hospitalizations by 25 percent over five years.

FLPPS — a not-for-profit organization representing a network of 28 hospitals, 3,000 health care providers and more than 600 health care and community-based organizations in a 13 county region — aims to address current shortfalls in the health care system, including the role of behavioral health in primary care and skilled nursing facilities, patient care transitions, chronic disease management, and integrating health care services across multiple care settings. The FLPPS region covers Allegany, Cayuga, Chemung, Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Steuben, Wayne, Wyoming and Yates counties.

Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia) today applauded October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month nationwide. Hawley expressed concern about this issue and was pleased to see many New York State leaders, including Gov. Cuomo, raising awareness of breast cancer research.

“Cancer is something that touches tens of thousands of families a year in New York, and breast cancer is one of the leading causes of death for women across the U.S.,” Hawley said. “We have made significant strides toward finding a cure for cancer over the last decade but we are not there yet. I am proud that the pink ribbon has become a widely recognized symbol in society because that means we are increasing awareness of this issue and more women are remembering to schedule regular mammograms.

"I will do my part to push for increased funding for breast cancer research at the state level and I encourage all of my constituents to spread the word so together we can beat this disease."

“Anthrax in Autumn,” the practice exercise held last week at Genesee Community College had a great turnout. The exercise held by the Genesee and Orleans (GO) County Heath Departments simulated how antibiotics would be distributed if an anthrax attack occurred in the counties.

“The exercise was a success with 749 mock doses of the antibiotics doxycycline and ciproflaxin dispensed in two hours,” said Al Cheverie, GO Public Health Emergency Preparedness coordinator.

In the event of a public health emergency where residents are in need of medication or vaccination the Local Health Departments would provide this at no cost.

“Exercises like this one help our Public Health Professionals to not only practice serving the public masses but also to partner with agencies to share resources and manpower in the interest of protecting the public’s health in a timely and efficient manner,” said Paul Pettit, GO Public Health director.

Cheverie added, “Thank you to all who helped prepare our community by receiving ‘medication’ and to the hardworking volunteers that assisted in many important ways. A special thanks especially to Genesee Community College, Lake Plains Community Care Network, University at Buffalo, New York State Department of Health, Alleghany Health Department and Wyoming County Health Department.”

Nate Hodge's "Everything Flows" exhibit opens Oct. 8 at the Rosalie "Roz" Steiner Art Gallery at Genesee Community College.

It will feature the mixed media work of Nate Hodge, a Brockport native. Two opening receptions are planned on Oct. 8: from 1 p.m. – 2 p.m.; and again later that day from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. Prior to the first reception, Hodge will be giving a lecture about his work in the Gallery at 12:30 p.m. All events are free and open to the public.

Hodge uses art to explore his observations through their temporality. Delicate forms develop and dissolve amidst the various layers of his work. Applying the same principle, the last moments of each painting set the parameters for the beginning of the next, creating a continuous flow among each exhibited work.

An accomplished, contemporary painter, Hodge is indirectly influenced by everything he has experienced in his 36 years, from food to family. Hodge took an interest in art at a young age and dreamed of a career as an artist.

"With my paintings I try to understand things through their temporality," Hodge writes of his works. "How I paint begins with what I observe happening around me, observations which can come from nearly anything."

His work has recently been displayed at Main Street Arts (Clifton Springs), the SUNY Global Center (New York City) The College at Brockport, The University of Buffalo, and several exhibitions in Buffalo and Rochester.

Hodge is the 2014 recipient of the Elliott Painting Award presented by The University at Buffalo, as well as the 2013 recipient of the Alumni Portfolio Award and the Maurice J. Moss Award presented by The College at Brockport.

"Everything Flows" will be displayed in the gallery through Nov. 25. The exhibit can be viewed during regular gallery hours, which are Monday through Friday 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. For more information on all upcoming events at the Roz Steiner Art Gallery visit or
