first_imgEvery person at Notre Dame has his or her own story, and one freshman is trying to tell as many of them as possible on her new blog.  Freshman Laura Gruszka lives in Cavanaugh Hall and operates the recently established blog, “I Am Notre Dame.” Gruszka officially launched the blog on Nov. 21 and said the page already has over 4,000 views, more than she ever imagined.  The blog seeks to tell the story of people within the Notre Dame community, whether the subject is a student, faculty member, fan or has some other connection to the University, no matter how small.  The blog’s “Our Goal” section says, “Notre Dame is more than just a campus. More than just a college. More than just a university. People who pass through campus even once (or never have the chance) find themselves irrevocably entwined into the ‘Notre Dame family,’ a community of people that spans generations, continents, genders, orientations, creeds and colors.” Gruszka said she was inspired by a similar blog, “Humans of New York,” which features short posts about people in New York City with accompanying pictures.  “I saw the blog Humans of New York and I was fascinated. Seeing that made me realize there was more to the world than my own little bubble,” Gruszka said. “And when I came [to Notre Dame] I realized how connected everyone is and how special this place is.” Gruszka, who is originally from Valparaiso, Ind., said she does not restrict the blog to students and faculty of Notre Dame.  “It’s not limited to just the students. Even the people of South Bend who aren’t a part of the University are still affected by it and have a story,” Gruszka said.  Gruszka plays percussion for the Notre Dame band and said her friends in the band opened her eyes to the diversity of the University. “There’s more diversity here than there was at my high school, and meeting all the people on drum line made me realize just how special Notre Dame is,” Gruszka said. Gruszka said she will interview “basically anyone” for the blog, but she needs to be brave enough to approach someone she thinks is interesting. Gruszka said people have been “crazy willing” to talk to her for the blog. “That’s just the Notre Dame family, I guess. When I ask people if they have a minute to talk, they always say ‘yeah,’” Gruszka said.  Gruszka said she is grateful for the support and encouragement she has received from friends and strangers alike. “I am so humbled and grateful that I just don’t know what to say,” Gruszka said. “Everyone has just been very supportive.” Gruska said she plans to keep the blog active throughout her time at Notre Dame, but does not yet know what she will do if the blog is still fruitful at the end of her senior year. “I though it would be cool to keep it running through my four years as a testament to my time at Notre Dame,” Gruszka said. “If it lasts until senior year, I’ll figure out what to do with it then.” Gruszka said she tries to keep herself out of the blog and simply let people tell their own stories.  “It’s not about me. I want it to be about the people of Notre Dame and I am the vehicle for them,” Guszka said. “I try to keep myself out of it as much as possible.”  Contact Jack Rooney at [email protected]last_img

first_imgOp-Ed: Wind Industry Lifts South Dakota FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Watertown Public Opinion:There are few greater economic development opportunities in rural America right now than wind power. Across the country, wind farms are providing a stable source of new revenue for farmers and ranchers, without disturbing their existing operations. These projects inject private capital into rural communities and produce new, family-supporting jobs where they are needed most.This growth occurring in South Dakota is because our region’s electricity providers recognize the benefits that wind energy can have for their customers. Not only is wind a low-cost, reliable source of electricity, it provides a hedge against the volatility of other fuel costs, such as natural gas or coal. Local landowners are also benefiting. Existing S.D. wind projects pay millions annually in land lease payments to rural landowners and millions more to locals, which helps fund vital services, support road improvements, and keep a lid on property taxes. Best of all, as wind energy grows in the state, so too will the money flowing to rural communities. Nationwide, rural landowners receive over $245 million annually from existing wind farms.The benefits of South Dakota’s wind boom don’t end at the project site. The wind industry relies on domestic manufacturing and over 25,000 Americans work to manufacture components for wind turbines. The added income, additional revenue, and new jobs are not coming at the expense of taxpayers, as Johnson asserts. While all forms of domestic energy production receive some form of government incentive, the wind industry has historically received far less than other sources. In fact, less than 3 percent of all federal energy incentives from 1947 to 2015 have gone to wind energy. It’s also important to understand that the primary federal incentive for wind development, the Production Tax Credit, only pays for power produced and is working as intended by helping spur wind development and lower energy costs. Indeed, the value of this tax credit flows directly through to ratepayers. Moreover, the credit has succeeded in driving the innovation and growth needed to push the cost of wind power down 66 percent since 2009. As a result, the wind industry agreed to support a phasedown of the incentive at the end of 2015 and the PTC is now set to completely phase out by the end of 2019.

The fire burned four acres before it was contained. An investigation into the fire revealed that Curtis Faustich, a seasonal concessionaire employee, had dropped a lit cigarette onto the ground, igniting the fire.  The Twelve Mile Project, one of the largest single timber sales in North Carolina’s Pisgah National Forest, is now open for public comment. The draft environmental assessment for the project was released July 24 and will be open for 30 days. The public is invited to weigh in until August 23.  Birds of Prey program coming to WV state parks and forests Suspect responsible for fire at entrance of Yellowstone National Park receives 3 months in jail The plan can be reviewed here: Wings of Wonder, the West Virginia Birds of Prey program, will be presented in state parks and forests this August and September. The one-hour program introduces the public to six birds of prey that are native to West Virginia and teaches attendees about each bird’s rehabilitation, habitat and habits. The program is free to attend. “Wings of Wonder” schedule:Cacapon Resort State Park- August 9, 7:30 p.m.Lost River State Park- August 10, 2 p.m.Holly River State Park- August 17, 2 p.m.Twin Falls Resort State Park- August 24, 7 p.m.Audra State Park- August 31, 7 p.m.Kanawha State Forest- September 14, 1 p.m.Pipestem Resort State Park- September 14, 7 p.m.Tygart Lake State Park- September 21, 7 p.m.  According to the Citizen-Times, the draft shows a roughly 18,000-acre stretch of land in the Twelve Mile area designated for “maintaining a resilient and diverse forest that supports wildlife, provides a sustainable source of timber, improves water quality and aquatic habitat and improves access to the forest.” As required under the National Environmental Policy Act, the draft assessment provides options on which the public can give their opinion. These include “no action” and “action alternative,” which is preferred by the Forest Service. Largest timber project in Pisgah National Forest open for public comment On August 6, Faustich appeared in court and pled guilty. He was sentenced to three months in jail, $5,000 in restitution, two years of unsupervised probation, and is prohibited from entering Yellowstone National Park for two years. Callers to the park’s 24-hour tip line provided details that led to Faustich’s arrest.last_img
