Beers to You!

Another fun beer class at H-E-B Fairfield with David Nicholas of H-E-B and Chad Philbeam of Beer Logic. We learned about the evolving craft beer business, types of beer, and different tastes of beer. So, we had to taste a few to experience those differences. Phil provided a lot of information in addition to a good dose of humor.

You can listen to Chad on What's On Tap Radio on KPRC AM 950. Chad has allowed us to use his copyrighted presentation here for the  purposes of our ALL class only. You can view the presentation here.

The History of the Texas Rangers

The Texas Rangers were formed in the 1820s to protect the frontier from Indians. Over the many years since, the Rangers have had their ups and downs and their mission has changed many times. Today, it is one of the most respected group of investigators in the country. Monte Parks of Precinct 4 gave a great presentation on their history coinciding with the history of Texas and the United States.

RAD Class

We graduated from RAD! Through the Harvey aftermath, the flu season, two semesters, and trying to schedule a Captain, a Sergeant and class space, we finally did it. What a great experience and we recommend this class to any and all ladies out there. Check with your local Sheriff or Constable's office for classes. Thank you to everyone, especially Capt. Joachim and Sgt. Vidito of Lone Star College's Police department, for making it a great series of classes.

Special Event - Jan Jarboe Russell - Author of The Train to Crystal City

Tuesday, April 17th @ 6:30pm
Lone Star College-CyFair Conference Center
Russell’s book The Train to Crystal City: FDR’s Secret Prisoner Exchange Program and America’s Only Family Internment Camp During World War II is critically acclaimed and is currently being used this semester in most of our HIST (U.S. Survey II) courses.
Russell’s research on this Texas internment camp is insightful and the story is engaging and a page turner,” said professor of history Robert O’Brien. “We experience the camp primarily through the eyes of two teenage girls, one of Japanese heritage and the other German. Far fewer German Americans were put in camps during World War II so Russell’s book provides valuable information on a facet of internment that has been rarely examined.”

Hero or Villain? Choosing Less Conflict

Professor Patrick Barton, CyFair Communication, has invited ALL to attend his presentation, Hero or Villain? Choosing Less Conflict.

In the movie that is our life, we often see ourselves as the hero and see those who present obstacles as villains. This workshop will seek to re-frame these narrative choices, providing ways to improve interpersonal communication, reduce conflict, and increase our chances of success at work, in our classrooms and at home.
