Watson Fellowship in 2013 to explore human conceptions of waste around the world. She returned to MDI following her fellowship and in the fall of 2014 conducted a weeklong discarded resource audit and awareness project at COA. She is now pursuing a master’s degree at the college and investigating solutions to the school’s and the greater community’s disposal practices.          She will present vignettes of compost laboratories in Germany, sewage recycling and food production in the wetlands of Kolkata, India, waste management in China and Japan's underwater landfills. She will draw parallels between these places, her native country of Sweden, and waste management on MDI.          Her experience managing COA’s compost program led her to write a case study on composting for her senior project.  Now, back from her yearlong adventure, she is continuing her efforts to understand and reduce wasteful behaviors, using COA and MDI as case studies.           For more information, contact Gary Friedmann at 207-460-7362.

Good Friday Concert: Joseph Haydn’s “The Seven Last Words of Christ”
(Fri. 3 Apr, 2015 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm)

  Joseph Haydn’s “The Seven Last Words of Christ” for string quartet to be performed at Columbia Street Baptist Church, by the Hallelujah String Quartet April, 3, 7:00 pm.   Bangor, Maine, March 4, 2015.  Betsy Kobayashi, the founder of Pineland Suzuki School in Manchester, will bring the Hallelujah String Quartet to Bangor for a performance of Joseph Haydn’s masterpiece “The Seven Last Words of Christ”. Composed in 1783 for the Good Friday service at the Cathedral of Cádiz in Spain, it is considered to be one of the greatest pieces of Easter music.            

Hayden’s seven sonatas are meditations on the following phrases gathered from the four Christian Gospels: "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do." "Surely, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise." "Woman, behold your son! Behold your mother!" "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" "I thirst." "It is finished!" "Father, into your hands I commend my spirit."              

Twenty years ago, violinist Betsy Kobayashi of Manchester, ME, had a dream. Her dream was to bring to Maine, Dr. Shinichi Suzuki’s lifetime belief that music lies in the heart of any and every child: “I believe that every child can become superior, and my confidence has never been betrayed.” Betsy studied under Dr. Suzuki for 7 years, graduating from the Talent Education Institute in Matsumoto, Japan. Since the early 1990’s, hundreds of Maine children have found their voices through violin, viola and cello at the Pineland Suzuki School.   

For 17 consecutive Good Fridays, Betsy has led a string quartet in the sacred performance of Joseph Haydn’s Seven Last Words of Christ. On April 3 at 7:00 pm, her “Halleluiah String Quartet” (comprised of members of the Pineland Suzuki School Faculty and Student Quartet) will perform Haydn’s masterpiece at Columbia Street Baptist Church (CSBC) in Bangor.  

Dr. Stan Moody, Senior Pastor at CSBC, credits Betsy with the spark that ignited the spirit of his cellist son, Jonathan, a performance music major at Susquehanna University. “I have watched children come alive under Betsy’s leadership”, Moody says. “The patient, faithful contribution that Betsy has made to my own ministry has deeply enriched me. I guarantee that those who attend this concert will find nothing to compare with it this side of NY.”    

The Good Friday concert will be offered at no charge to the public as a gift to Bangor from CSBC. Instead, a freewill offering will be taken. All are welcome.

Join us at the Jesup Memorial Library on Friday, April 3 at 7 p.m. to see the videos, talk to their creator, and get a behind-the-scenes look at what it took for him to make it happen.           Mr. Monat is well known for his diving adventures.  The Town Hill resident has been diving for 33 years, much of it in Maine. He came to Bar Harbor from Massachusetts to attend College of the Atlantic in 1984. A former lobsterman, harbormaster, and special education teacher, he works now as a commercial diver, scuba instructor, marine ecologist and hand harvester,  and he can still be found taking tubs of sea creatures into classrooms in the area to educate kids about marine life, something he did for years before starting the venture that he is now best known for, Diver Ed’s Dive-In Theater. During the summer and his wife Edna “Captain Evil” Martin operate the Dive-In Theater aboard their boat, the Starfish Enterprise, with the help of a few crew members and their two Newfoundland dogs. His constant companion during Dive-In theater dives, which are broadcast on board so passengers can see what Mr. Monat is up to underwater, is Mini-Ed, a toy diver currently in his 162nd  incarnation.  Mr. Monat also dives with members of the dive club he started on MDI, the League of Underwater Superheroes. The group frequently stages clean-ups of local harbors.           He dives around the world. “But my passion is showing people how much fun diving in Maine can be,” says.  That includes donning a drysuit and breaking through ice, sometimes in a snowstorm, to dive this winter.  Come find out more about his frigid adventures at the Jesup.           For more information, contact the Jesup at 207-288-4245.   ###

Ebola, Superbugs and the New Epidemics of the 21st Century: A Husson University Lecture
(Mon. 6 Apr, 2015 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm)

The first reported case of Ebola occurred in December 2013 in Guinea.[1] In the 16 months that have passed since that first case was reported, 25,213 individuals have contracted this disease and 10,460 have died.[2] Many members of the public are alarmed about the spread of Ebola. In fact, the recent attempt to quarantine former Maine nurse Kaci Hickox raised profound concerns about public panic and misunderstandings associated with infectious diseases. Containing and treating infectious diseases is just one of the challenges facing our modern health care delivery system worldwide. In an effort to help members of the public better understand the challenges confronting public health and our medical response to existing and potential future epidemics, Husson University’s College of Health and Education is sponsoring a lecture entitled, “Ebola, Superbugs, and the New Epidemics of the 21st Century: How Do We Respond?” Guest lecturer Dr. Peter Millard will share a timely, ethical, and science-based approach to infectious disease outbreaks with the audience. It’s his view that this approach will be the most successful way to handle future epidemics or multiple simultaneous epidemics. The presentation will take place on Monday, April 6, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. in the Kominsky Auditorium in Peabody Hall on the Bangor, Maine campus of Husson University. The lecture is free and open to the public. Millard is a family physician and epidemiologist. Originally from southern Maine, he was educated at Amherst College, the University of Vermont Medical School, and the University of North Carolina School of Public Health. He served as an epidemic intelligence service officer with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), where he investigated disease outbreaks. “By sharing the most up-to-date information we have on disease control, this lecture will help avoid the public panic and misunderstanding associated with epidemics,” said Paula Tingley, Ed.D., interim dean at Husson University’s College of Health & Education. “We don’t want to repeat history. In the early days of the AIDS epidemic, there was an enormous amount of fear and stigmatization of anyone who contracted the disease. Lectures like this help students and our community better understand how to respond appropriately to public health challenges.” Formerly a faculty physician at the EMMC family medicine residency program (1995-2008), Dr. Peter Millard recently returned to this country after spending five years in Mozambique, where he was a professor at the Catholic University of Mozambique Medical School. He developed a primary care and AIDS teaching clinic in Beira, Mozambique, and is the developer of a novel new technique for male circumcision to prevent HIV transmission. Millard has published over 50 articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals and is actively engaged in HIV prevention research. Dr. Millard practices at Seaport Community Health Center in Belfast and is an adjunct professor of public health at the University of New England. He is married to Emily Wesson, who is school nurse at Belfast Area High School, and has three children. The College of Health and Education at Husson University offers innovative and challenging, undergraduate and advanced degree programs led by a highly credentialed and experienced faculty. Programs offered by the College include degrees in education, graduate counseling, nursing, occupational therapy and physical therapy. Educational excellence is created through rigorous coursework combined with experiential learning opportunities.

All tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis at the Jesup’s front desk.

Author Visit – Mac Smith, “Mainers on the Titanic”
(Tue. 14 Apr, 2015 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm)

“Mainers on the Titanic” traces the stories of passengers on that fateful ship who had ties to Maine. Many of them were wealthy summer visitors to Mount Desert Island, but there were many other residents of the state aboard as well. Their tales are retold in a lively way here, along with the sinking-related events in the state at that time. Meticulously researched, this book reveals the agonizing day-to-day wait of Mainers for news of what really happened to their loved ones aboard and tells the stories of Maine passengers from their boarding to the sinking, rescue, and arrival back in the country, and, for those who did not survive, their final coming ashore in Halifax, Nova Scotia. It's a unique and fascinating addition to the Titanic story and to Maine history. About the author: A Navy veteran of the First Gulf War and former news reporter for the Bar Harbor Times, Mac Smith lives in Stockton Springs, Maine, in the village of Sandy Point, where he is restoring the family homestead. This is his first book. This special event is co-sponsored by Sherman’s book store, and copies of the book will be available for purchase at the Jesup that evening with a percentage of the sale price donated to the library.

This ballet will take you alongside the adventures of a feral child Mowgli who will have an encounter with Kaa the python snake, a gang of monkeys, a pack of wolves, a village maiden, and the other creatures inside the jungle.   The Jungle Book ballet is inspired by the stories about a feral child Mowgli from the book of the same name by Rudyard Kipling.

With this life threatening news, Bagheera has offered to take Mowgli in finding his way out of the jungle. These two encounter a wildly fun adventure running into the many animals of the jungle. In the mean time Mowgli tries to run away from Bagheera and the “man village” that they are headed to. Will the jungle animals that Mowgli runs into help him make it to safety or keep him in dangers way? Come and see how this story will end!

Forage for fiddleheads with cookbook author at Jesup talk
(Thu. 16 Apr, 2015 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm)

BAR HARBOR — Cookbook author L.E. Barrett will delve into a tasty topic on Thursday, April 16 at 7 p.m. — fiddleheads! Find out more about foraging for and cooking this traditional Maine treat during this special event at the Jesup Memorial Library, which begins at 7 p.m.    Fiddleheads are the curled fronds of young ferns and are harvested in early spring, before the ferns unfurl. They are rich in vitamin A and C, iron, and fiber, among other essential nutrients. Their name comes from the resemblance of the coiled fronds to that of a stringed instrument such as a fiddle.Mr. Barrett’s book “Fiddlemainia” is filled with information about the history of the fiddlehead, foraging tips, photographs, and 125 recipes from around the world describing different ways to prepare fiddleheads, including soup, casseroles, bread and even fiddlehead ice cream.The road to “Fiddlemainia” began for Mr. Barrett in Maine and has taken him several times around the world — from Hallowell, Maine to Vietnam to Boston and back to Maine.  “All along the road, I wrote, I thought, and I wrote some more,” says the author. “So that before my days drain away, I will have said what I came here to say.” He is currently at work on several other cookbooks, including one about dandelions.This event is co-sponsored by Sherman’s Bookstore, and copies of Mr. Barrett’s book will be available for purchase at the Jesup that evening, with a percentage of the sale price donated to the library.The book signing is part of a week-long series of events at the Jesup as part of National Library Week April 12-18, which has been celebrated throughout the country each April since 1958. It is sponsored by the American Library Association, www.ala.org, and is a time to both celebrate and support libraries and librarians.For more information about Mr. Barrett and his work, visit www.lebarrett.com.

Expert explains solar project in talk at Jesup
(Tue. 21 Apr, 2015 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm)

BAR HARBOR — Join Sue Jones, director of Community Solar Farms (CSFs) for ReVision Energy, at the Jesup Memorial Library on Tuesday, April 21 at 4 p.m. to learn more about use of solar energy for homes and businesses in Maine, including a proposed CSF program in Bar Harbor.Ms. Jones will be speaking about solar energy ownership and usage opportunities in Maine, ranging from private ownership of a project by owners to offset some or all usage at a home or business to a new business model called “community solar farms” in which multiple owners utilize publicly and/or privately owned locations for project development and self-organizing to co-own solar arrays in order to offset their electricity usage.She will also speak about the basics of a CSF proposed for town-owned land at Bar Harbor’s public works property that is up for vote on June 2.  There will be a question-and-answer session following the talk. “CSFs are growing rapidly in providing co-ownership opportunities for residents seeking to own solar power generation but who are unable to have it installed on their own property because of having a poor site, unsuitable roof, no land, and other restrictions,” says Gary Friedmann.  CSFs are relatively new to Maine but are in wide use in Massachusetts, Colorado, Minnesota, and New Hampshire.Ms. Jones is an attorney with 22 years of experience in representing renewable energy and environmental issues, projects, policy and programming, and has spent the past decade in project management, education, outreach, technical assistance, government relations, and public financing including grant and technical writing.  ReVision is northern New England’s leader in the professional design, installation, and service of solar energy systems. With staff approaching 80 solar professionals, it maintains warehouse, office, and fabrication shops in Portland and Liberty, Maine, as well as Exeter, New Hampshire. It supplies solar energy systems to commercial and residential clients in Maine, New Hampshire, and northeastern Massachusetts.  ###

This dinner is available by reservation only. There will be one seating at 5:30 p.m. The Model UN conference, sponsored by the United Nations Association of the United States of America is an authentic simulation of the UN General Assembly, UN Security Council and other multilateral bodies that introduces students to the world of diplomacy, negotiation, decision- and policymaking, and international relations. At the core of this event is the opportunity for students to explore current world issues and then step into the shoes of UN Ambassadors of member countries as delegates to draft resolutions, plot strategy, negotiate with supporters and adversaries, resolve conflicts, and follow the UN’s rules of procedure while working to resolve problems that affect the world. Delegates debate current issues on the UN’s agenda. The MDIHS Model UN students are responsible for researching the particular global problem, drawn from today’s headlines, to be addressed, writing position papers and resolutions for submission to the conference, and preparing to debate issues from the perspective of the country they will be representing. Last year, over 2,300 students from 18 US states and 21 countries met to discuss international issues such as International Narcotics Trafficking, Loan Reform and Forgiveness for Developing Countries and Uses of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (Drones).  To reserve a place for this special event, call Red Sky Restaurant at 244-0476 and specify “Model UN Fundraiser.”
