11/21/2012 JURIED FINE ART AND CRAFT SHOW SET FOR DECEMBER 8-9 IN SUMMERVILLE

leave a comment »

Mentone, Alabama – In the northwest corner of Georgia, the town of Summerville welcomes juried artists from across the region the second weekend in December when the annual Rattling Gourd Arts and Crafts Festival sets up in town. Twenty-five artists and craftsmen who will be presenting their latest original creations are expected at this year’s event set for December 8-9, 2012 at the Chattooga County Civic Center.

Named for a Native American resident of the area before it became Chattooga County, the annual event offers an up close look at a variety of fine arts and crafts and the opportunity for the public to mingle with artisans and crafters in a small, intimate setting. During the two day event, visitors can expect a stellar collection of handmade jewelry, pottery, turned wooden bowls, paintings, photography, and carvings. The Chattooga Garden Club will also serve refreshments throughout the two-day event.

“The Rattling Gourd Arts and Crafts Festival offers holiday shoppers a chance to purchase an original piece of work to give as a unique Christmas present or to keep for their own enjoyment,” said Harriet O’Rear, president of the Mentone Area Arts Council. This year’s event coincides with the Victorian Christmas Walk, an incredible life-size display of Christmas vignettes in the store windows of downtown Summerville, which is set to open on Sunday, December 9.

Show hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days and admission is free. The Chattooga County Civic Center is located at 44 Highway 48 in Summerville, Georgia. Summerville is located approximately 10 miles east of the Georgia/Alabama state line.

The annual festival is sponsored by the Mentone Area Arts Council, Paradise Gardens Foundation and Vision Gallery of Summerville. For more information on the Rattling Gourd Arts and Crafts Festival, email Fran Myers at franmyers@gmail.com.

11/14/2012 Four U.S. Organizations Honored with the 2012 Baldrige National Quality Award

leave a comment »

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Four U.S. Organizations Honored with the 2012 Baldrige National Quality Award
For Immediate Release: November 14, 2012

Contact: Michael E. Newman
301-975-3025

Silver Anniversary Group Features Winners in Four Different Sectors

WASHINGTON, D.C.-Acting U.S. Commerce Secretary Rebecca Blank today named four U.S. organizations as recipients of the 2012 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, the nation’s highest Presidential honor for performance excellence through innovation, improvement and visionary leadership. The winners in this, the 25th anniversary year of the award, represent four different sectors, one repeat recipient and a health network recognized for the same honor earned previously by its flagship hospital.

The 2012 Baldrige Award recipients-listed with their category-are:

*Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, Grand Prairie, Texas (manufacturing)
*MESA Products Inc., Tulsa, Okla. (small business)
*North Mississippi Health Services, Tupelo, Miss. (health care)
*City of Irving, Irving, Texas (nonprofit)
MESA previously received a Baldrige Award in 2006, also in the small business category. Another 2006 award winner, North Mississippi Medical Center in the health care category, is the primary hospital of this year’s much larger recipient, North Mississippi Health Services.

“The four organizations recognized today with the 2012 Baldrige Award are leaders in the truest sense of the word and role models that others in the health care, nonprofit and business sectors worldwide will strive to emulate,” said Acting Secretary Blank. “They have set the bar high for innovative practices, dynamic management, financial performance, outstanding employee and customer satisfaction, and, most of all, for their unwavering commitment to excellence and proven results.”

This year marks the silver anniversary of both the award and the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program (BPEP) that supports it. To date, more than 1,500 U.S. organizations have applied for the Baldrige Award, and there are Baldrige-based award programs in nearly all 50 states. Internationally, the program has served as a model for nearly 100 quality programs. A December 2011 study by Albert N. Link and John T. Scott measuring the Baldrige Program’s value to U.S. organizations conservatively estimated a benefit-to-cost ratio of 820 to 1, while a 2011 report by Thomson Reuters found that health care organizations that have won or been in the final review process for a Baldrige Award outperform other hospitals in all but one metric the company uses to determine its “100 Top Hospitals” in the nation (and were six times more likely to be among the top 100).

The 2012 Baldrige Award recipients were selected from a field of 39 applicants. All of the applicants were evaluated rigorously by an independent board of examiners in seven areas defined by the Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence: leadership; strategic planning; customer focus; measurement, analysis and knowledge management; workforce focus; operations focus; and results. The evaluation process for each of the recipients included about 1,000 hours of review and an on-site visit by a team of examiners to clarify questions and verify information in the applications.

For the first time this year, Baldrige Award applicants were required to have previously received their state’s performance excellence award (see www.nist.gov/baldrige/2012_applications.cfm).

Another innovation added to the Baldrige Award process in 2012 is ability to recognize best practices in one or more of the Baldrige Criteria categories by organizations that are candidates for the award but are not selected as a winner (see http://www.nist.gov/baldrige/baldrige-062712.cfm). This year, the Baldrige judges have chosen to honor the following organizations (listed with the criteria for which they are being acknowledged):

*Maury Regional Medical Center, Columbia, Tenn. (strategic planning, workforce focus)
*Northwest Vista College, San Antonio, Texas (leadership, customer focus)
*PricewaterhouseCoopers Public Sector Practice, McLean, Va. (leadership, workforce focus)
The 2012 Baldrige Award recipients are expected to be presented with their awards at an April 2013 ceremony in Baltimore, Md.

The BPEP is managed by the U.S. Commerce Department’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in cooperation with the private sector. It also is a partner in the Baldrige Enterprise, which includes the private-sector Baldrige Foundation, the Alliance for Performance Excellence-a body made up of the 33-plus state, local, regional and sector-specific Baldrige-based programs serving nearly all 50 states; and ASQ, an international organization promoting quality. The program raises awareness about the importance of performance excellence in driving the U.S. and global economy; provides organizational assessment tools and criteria; educates leaders in businesses, schools, health care organizations, and government and nonprofit organizations about the practices of national role models; and recognizes them with the Baldrige Award in six categories: manufacturing, service, small business, health care, education and nonprofit.

Thousands of organizations worldwide use the Baldrige Criteria to guide their operations, improve performance and get sustainable results. This proven improvement and innovation framework offers organizations an integrated approach to key management areas. The criteria are regularly updated to reflect the leading edge of validated management practice.

The Baldrige Award is not given for specific products or services. Since 1988, 93 organizations have received the award.

For more information, including profiles of the 2012 Baldrige Award recipients, go to http://www.nist.gov/baldrige.

As a non-regulatory agency of the Commerce Department, NIST promotes U.S. innovation and industrial competitiveness by advancing measurement science, standards and technology in ways that enhance economic security and improve our quality of life.

11/14/2012 Photo Improvement Seminar November 18th

leave a comment »

The Northwest Alabama Arts Council and the Hamilton Area Chamber of Commerce will partner once again to host another photo improvement seminar, this time focusing on nighttime shooting, specifically in reference to photographing holiday lights and nighttime Christmas parades. The seminar will be this Sunday, November 18, beginning at 2 p.m., at Dollie’s Restaurant conference room, located inside the EconoLodge Inn & Suites. There is no charge for attendance. Attendees are encouraged to bring their cameras.

Serving as instructor for the seminar will be former arts council board member, Zach Wiginton. Zach, a current resident of Charleston, South Carolina, has a bachelor of science degree in arts with a focus in photography from the University of North Alabama where he served as a lead photographer for the FlorAla (the UNA school newspaper). He has worked five years photographing and videoing dance performers for IT Cinema.

For those who would like to come early and eat lunch at the restaurant prior to the seminar, the Sunday “Thanksgiving-styled” buffet is $8. The restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for lunch on Sunday.

Since we are at such a late date in announcing this seminar, please help us share the word about this seminar with anyone who might be interested — email, Facebook, texting, phone, or person to person. This will be a great opportunity to improve your photography skills especially for the upcoming holiday season.

11/06/2012 – Sen. Roger Bedford’s Capitol Report

leave a comment »

Capitol Report for November 6th, 2012

Almost every week we see or hear of exciting news about the progress being made rebuilding back from the devastating tornados that struck out Senate District in April of 2011.  One of the larger and bigger projects is the new Wrangler Distribution Center that will be re-built in Hackleburg.  We got some very news that it is possible that VF Jeanswear also known as Wrangler will be rebuilt earlier and possibly be completed prior to the summer of 2013 which was the original date of completion.  We all know that weather and other uncertainties can delay construction but they are going wide open there and it does my heart good to see them working so hard.

 

We also had a special treat this past week when the 115th Signal Battalion returned.  It is so good to have our sons, daughters, dads, moms and best friends back home safely back here in Alabama.  However this is a constant reminder that freedom is not free.  We must continue to support our veterans both from prior conflicts and current conflicts while remaining strong for the future.  It hurts me to see that the new Republican Super Majority continue to cut the budgets to the Alabama Department of Veteran Affairs and the National Guard Armories.  I think this is the wrong things to do as we should be investing more to help our Veterans because I appreciate the sacrifices they have made and continue to make for my family and yours.

 

It’s a pleasure for me to announce that the Fayette, Lamar and Pickens County Commissions  ; all municipalities in Lamar and Pickens Counties: City of Fayette; and the District Attorney’s office of the 24th Judicial Circuit have received a funding grant in the amount of $69,850 to continue a multi-jurisdictional drug\violent crime task force.  This task force will serve the 24th Judicial Circuit well which is composed of Fayette, Lamar and Pickens Counties.  I am proud to support these efforts to rid our Senate District and State of illegal drug and other violet criminal activities.  I commend D.A Chris McCool and his fine staff for providing a strong leadership for the 24th Judicial Circuit.

 

The Community Services Programs of West Alabama, Inc, Northwest Alabama Inc., Community Action Partnership of North Alabama and the Marion- Winston Counties Community Action Committee, Inc recently received a combined total of $500,561 in Community Services Block Grant Funds.  These Community Services Block Grant Funds will be used to provide services to low-income individuals and families to assist in removing obstacles and solving problems that impede the achievement of self-sufficiency.  A few of the services that will be provided include assistance with securing and maintaining meaningful employment, making better use of available income, obtaining and maintaining adequate housing, emergency assistance andencouraging greater participation in the community.  These multi-jurisdictional grants will benefit Bibb, Fayette, Greene, Lamar, Tuscaloosa, Choctaw and Sumter counties in West Alabama. Also benefiting from these grants is Colbert, Franklin and Lauderdale in Northwest Alabama, Cullman, Lawrence and Morgan in North Alabama and Marion and Winston Counties.

 

You may rest assured that I will continue to fight to see that our tax dollars are brought back to our Senate District in important grants like this one.

 

I am happy to report the Franklin County Community Development Committee recently awarded the following grants in our Senate District.  Red Bay Park and Rec. Center $1000 for a camera system for the Fun Park.  Vina High School 7th and 8th grade scholars bowl received $365.  Vina High School accelerated reading program received $1,997.  Vina High School 4th grade received a class donation in the amount of $500.  Red Bay Lions Club Christmas project \ clothing and food drive received $2000.  Vina High School Girls basketball program received $1000.  Vina High School received $420 to replace the Automated Difibulator battery.  Russellville City Schools received $1000 towards Administrator IPAD purchases.  Belgreen’s softball program received $1000.  Phil Campbell High School Jr Scholars Bowl received $300.  Russellville High School Majorette Program received $1000.

Russellville High School girls basketball program received $1000.  Russellville Middle School girls basketball team received $1000.  Vina High School Cross Country Program received $500.  Burnout Community Homeakes Club received $2500 for the new roof on the Burnout Community Center.  Franklin County Farmer’s Foundation Book Barns program received $1450.

 

This past week I saw the death of two good friends who have been in the trenches working hard for years helping to make Alabama an even better place to live and work.  The first of these was my good friend Trennon Nalls who passed away in Fayette.   Trennon leaves behind a loving family and it was a pleasure for me to attend his visitation at Norwood Funeral Home in Fayette.  Trennon was a long time supporter of the Democratic party and severed as chairman of ADC, Alabama Democratic Conference, for Fayette County and worked thirty plus years at the automotive company, ARVIN,  thatwas once in Fayette. I first meet Trennon back in 1981 when I was preparing to run for the Alabama State Senate.  He and his fine family have helped me in every election and I will miss my good friend Trennon but I know that he is out of his pain and in heaven smiling down upon us.

 

My other good friend that went to heaven this past week was Lance Blackstock.  Lance was from the Shoals and had been involved with organized labor more specially the IBEW ever since I’ve known him.  He was a man of his work who cared deeply about his fellow workers and his community.  I first meet Lance when I was involved in Young Democrats while in law school.  He had a beautiful funeral service and it was a pleasure seeing so many of his fine family members there celebrating his passage to heaven.  I will miss Lance as well; he was a long time friend and a strong political supporter.

 

I very much appreciate all the cards, e-mails, prayers and phone calls that Maudie and I have received as she continues her battle against breast cancer.  I am so proud of how brave she is even though the chemo is taking a toll on her body as it does its job of killing the cancer.  She is through the rough part of the chemo treatments but will continue treatments for the next six weeks followed by six weeks of radiation.  Thank you for keeping us in your prayers because we believe that our good Lord is still in the healing business and the Power of Prayer is a very positive and powerful thing.

 

Thank you for all the phone calls, letters and e-mails about your concerns dealing with the issues facing us at the State and local level.  Please continue to contact me at the following address.
