Budget Overhaul Bills Endorsed by Rules and Budget Committees: The House Budget Committee approved three measures that would overhaul the congressional budget process. The panel approved 21-12 an amended version of a bill ( HR 3578 ) that would stop the Congressional Budget Office from incorporating inflation increases into its projected spending baselines. The committee approved 21-11 an amended version of a bill ( HR 3582 ) to require the CBO to take into account the effect that bills might have on economic growth, a calculation often referred to as dynamic scoring. The committee also approved 21-10 a third amended bill ( HR 3581 ) that would require changes in budget accounting, including using fair value accounting for federal credit programs.

Delisle Nominated: Last night the President announced his intent to nominate Deborah Delisle, for Assistant Secretary for Elementary and Secondary Education, Department of Education: “Deborah Delisle served as the State Superintendent of Public Instruction for the Ohio Department of Education from 2008 to 2011. Previously, Ms. Delisle worked in the Cleveland Heights-University Heights City School District in Ohio, first as Associate Superintendent from 2001 to 2003, then as Superintendent from 2003 to 2008. Since beginning her career as an elementary teacher in Connecticut in the 1970s, Ms. Delisle has served in a variety of roles at the school district level in Ohio, including as Director of Academic Services, Director of Curriculum and Professional Development, and Coordinator of Gifted and Talented Programs. Ms. Delisle has served on several education boards, including the Governing Board of the Minority Student Achievement Network, Executive Board of the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education, and the Council of Chief State School Officers Executive Board. Ms. Delisle is a recipient of the Betsy Cowles Women in Leadership Award and the Buckeye Association of School Administrators Distinguished Service Award. She holds a B.S. from Springfield College and an M.Ed. from Kent State University.”

Sequestration Reports

OMB issued two reports relating to FY 12 appropriations and sequestration.

Within seven days after enactment of a discretionary spending bill, OMB is required to submit a report to Congress “estimating the change in budget authority and outlays for each fiscal year through 2021 resulting from that legislation”. This report includes separate analyses of each of the appropriations bills included within the omnibus bill. The Labor-HHS-Education section starts on page 30. See page 31 for discussion of Pell changes.

The second is the Final Sequestration Report for FY 2012 (January 2012) . This shows that the total FY 12 discretionary spending was within the caps established by the Budget Control Act. In fact, nonsecurity discretionary budget authority is almost $2 billion below the adjusted cap.

CBO issued its Final Sequestration Report for Fiscal Year 2012 . The CBO reports notes that due to the failure to enact at least $1.2 trillion in deficit reduction, the Budget Control Act automatically revised the categories between nonsecurity and security. There are now separate caps through FY 2021 for defense and nondefense (with defense defined to include only spending in Budget Function 050, whereas the nonsecurity category also included homeland security and parts of international affairs). The total FY 13 cap (before adjustments) is $1.047 trillion, with $501 billion of that for nondefense spending. It is important to note that this new nondefense cap for FY 13 is LOWER than the comparable FY 12 level of $505 billion.

News OCR Text: Biennial Faculty Show runs through Feb. 10 on campus; Mark Schatz exhibit at Downtown Gallery through Feb. 11.

By Kasha Legeza

Winter can be a cold, dreary season – making it a great time of year to warm the heart and stimulate the imagination at one or both of the Kent State University School of Art exhibitions currently under way. And they're free to attend.

Biennial Faculty Show

Running through Feb. 10 at the Art Gallery inside the Kent State Art Building, at 400 Janik Drive, the Biennial Faculty Show highlights the talents of the art faculty staff.

Eftihia Tsengas, public relations and marketing coordinator for the College of the Arts, said the show features 100 percent participation in the exhibit by full-time faculty, including:

Michael Loderstedt, printmaking
Janice Lessman-Moss, textiles/fiber
Darice Polo, painting
Martin Ball, painting
Kathleen Brown, metals and jewelry-making
Mark Schatz, sculpture
Gianna Commito, painting
Kirk Mangus, ceramics
Paul O'Keefe, sculpture
Submissions from such emeritus faculty as Brinsley Tyrell
Anderson Turner, director of galleries for the Kent State School of Art, said the show offers students and the public the opportunity to see the current research of the faculty “at the premier School of Art in the region.”

“For over 50 years, the School of Art has been the only school in Northeast Ohio where an artist can earn a master of fine arts. Shows like the Biennial Faculty Show offer a glimpse into that rich and important history,” Turner said.

Hours to visit the free exhibit are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday until Feb. 10. For more information, visit the School of Art's Galleries webpage or call 330-672-7853.

“Steady As She Goes” Exhibit

Running through Feb. 11 at the School of Art's Downtown Gallery at 141 E. Main St. is an exhibit featuring the work of artist Mark Schatz, an assistant professor and foundations program coordinator in the School of Art.

Tsengas said his exhibit focuses on the theme of seeking stability in an unstable world. In this exhibition, lush and familiar landscapes float or balance precariously on ice floes.

"The major pieces in 'Steady As She Goes' are miniature fragments of what could be the Midwest – sprawling neighborhoods, hilltop radio towers, distant cities – all set adrift on icebergs, which are beautiful but also serve as this elegant metaphor for a landscape that seems fixed but is always shifting and changing with time," Schatz said.

"Since 'Steady As She Goes' is a nautical term for holding course, particularly through rough waters, it struck me as funny to have a nautical theme for a geologically-themed body of work. I liked thinking of these landscapes as ships lost at sea, hoping that if they just point in one direction and hold tight they will eventually find their way," Schatz said.

Hours to visit the free exhibit are noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. For more information, visit the School of Art's Galleries webpage or call 330-676-1549.

KENT: In a freezer in the kitchen of Beall Hall at Kent State University, dozens of deep-dish cheesecakes are stacked up, waiting to be thawed and served as dessert.

They were prepared by students taking a baking course as part of the university's hospitality management major. What makes these cakes so special is that until very recently, they would have been thrown in the trash, not saved in the freezer.

That was until a fateful spring break trip in 2010, which sent staff and students home with the kernel of an idea: Reclaiming food from across the campus, saving it from being wasted and putting it to good use.

News Headline: Wrangler will feature design by KSU student (Grieder) | Attachment Email

News OCR Text: Kent State University student Shannon Gallagher, a fifth-year fashion merchandising major and entrepreneurship minor from Garrettsville, designed a work wear garment in her product development class that will be available for purchase in the Wrangler Christmas 2012 catalog.

“My inspiration came from my lifestyle of living on a farm and what my brother and father would wear. I've raised and showed livestock for years and this design came from there,” said Gallagher.

Gallagher, 22, credits KSU Professor Trista Grieder for her success with Wrangler. She said Grieder “played a huge role” in her achievement because Grieder's project proposal was encouraging, and she also submitted Gallagher's design to her contact at Wrangler for review.

“Shannon came to me with her passion for the Western customer early in the spring semester of 2010. She had tried to design lines for this customer before and knew I had worked for (Wrangler) in my industry background,” Grieder said. “This was Shannon's chance to shine.”

Grieder's students will learn that merchandisers and designers are partners in the creation of fashion and that a large network can be the foundation for future successes.

“I try to guide the Product Development class into other directions than just women's wear. Due to the continuous friendship with my past mentor at Wrangler, we embarked on a men's western shirt project. Shannon's project stood out, and they decided to manufacturer her design,” Grieder said.

The shirt is long-sleeved with a designed yoke, shirt-type collar, flapped breast pockets and decorative stitching. It is designed for men and has been produced by Wrangler from a concept to a wearable piece.

“(Trista) Grieder emailed me and it took reading it three times and having my mom read the email to me to believe it was real,” Gallagher said. “It was even more exciting when she sent the email about my shirt design actually (being) produced and in her office where I could finally see and touch it.”

Gallagher has received praise and support from her family and friends. She said that everyone is proud of her and happy to see her success. Her father and brother “are excited to buy the shirt next Christmas and are proud to be part of the inspiration.” Although Gallagher is unsure what her future holds after graduation, she is looking forward to graduating with honors in May.

During her free time, Gallagher enjoys sewing, scrapbooking and photography. She also dedicates her time to teaching children to sew through 4-H clubs and programs. Gallagher stays involved in the fashion community by engaging in local entrepreneurship organizations, 4-H, leadership programs and scholarly groups.

She currently works as an independent Mary Kay consultant, a teacher at the Looking Glass Learning Center and a sales associate at the Longaberger Factory Store.

Trista L. Grieder joined the Fashion School faculty in Fall 2010 and has been in the business for more than 13 years. She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Costume Design from Kent State University and her Master's of Science in Higher Education in Online Teaching and Learning from Kaplan University.

Her industry experience includes working with such companies as Wrangler Jeans, Dillard's, Augusta Sportswear and Mountain High Hosiery. She has spent most of her career in Product Development and CAD. One of her greatest successes was winning an award for designing a women's jean for Wrangler, which sold in record numbers.

Wrangler, established in 1947, is a publicly traded company that offers western apparel and farm-style work wear. Wrangler has become known for its quality, durability and involvement with western-style sports and activities

Beacon Journal Publishing Co.

Kent State University associate professor Patrick O'Connor is working on a book to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Ray's Place in downtown Kent and wants input from the public.

O'Connor is seeking stories from customers and employees about the downtown restaurant and pub, a Kent landmark, which opened in 1937.

"A lot of changes have taken place in downtown Kent, but here is one restaurant that has been here a long time and has been a magnet for Kent State alumni, staff and students," O'Connor said in a news release. "I marvel at how popular Ray's Place is, especially during Homecoming, and the tremendous loyalty of its customers. Sharing the stories of the restaurant's employees and customers for the past 75 years is something unique and worth celebrating."

The bulk of the book will feature fond, funny, sentimental or weird memories shared by employees and customers, he said. Submissions can be made at www.raysplacekent.com; you can remain anonymous.

"Whether you remember going into Ray's, but never remembered coming out, as one anonymous contributor stated, your story could help build this memory book that transcends generations," O'Connor said.

Contributors also can suggest a title for the book, which will be published in spring 2013 by Black Squirrel Books, an imprint of the Kent State University Press. Proceeds will support the Ray's Place Entrepreneurship Scholarship program for Kent State University's College of Business Administration.

Owner Charles Thomas has given his blessing for the book. O'Connor teaches in KSU's School of Teaching, Learning and Curriculum Studies.

News OCR Text: Donation/collaboration with Kent State's Wick Poetry Center gets project back on track.

By Kasha Legeza

New life has been breathed into the public art project first proposed two years ago for the Haymaker Farmers' Market site on Franklin Avenue – just in time for the popular gathering spot's 20th anniversary this summer.

Manager Kelly Ferry announced on the market's Facebook page Tuesday that “we are halfway to our goal of $10,000 needed to fund the Haymaker Farmers' Market Mural Project.”

Kent artist Elaine Hullihen will incorporate scenes of the market and Kent's unique history throughout the mural to be painted on the columns and lintels under the Haymaker Parkway viaduct where it passes over the market site.

“This public art project will give the market a true sense of place in the city of Kent, while also beautifying an area that is undernourished during the off-season,” Ferry wrote to market friends Tuesday.

“Imagine visiting the market with this stunning artwork as the backdrop, or driving past in the middle of winter and seeing this reminder of the bountiful season to come,” she added.

Ferry credits the Wick Poetry Center at Kent State University for bringing the project back to life “with a major donation” and a partnership that will further enhance the mural with quotes from area schoolchildren.

Wick, she said, is working with students in Holden Elementary School's Garden Project to write poetry about gardens, fresh food, farms and the market. Hullihen will work lines of this inspiring poetry into her mural art.

Kent Patch reported last June that the mural project had hit some road blocks, including having to forfeit a $900 grant from the Ohio Arts Council to support installation of the artwork.

Getting someone to spearhead the project and solicit corporate sponsors was another problem, as those interested in helping were market vendors whose busiest time of year is summer.

But now, in the dead of winter, things are looking sunny for the mural project. Ferry reports that the city has taken over the lease for the Franklin Avenue lot used by the market “and assures us that we may continue holding the market at that location.”

Monetary donations made ages ago by the Kent Jaycees and Kent Kiwanis still stand, as does Sue Nelson Designs' offer of providing paint for the project at cost. And Ferry said the market itself is now in a position to “kick in a couple thousand” toward the project.

Ferry is hopeful that other community organizations, businesses and individuals are willing to make donations to get the project to its $10,000 goal. The names of those who donate $100 or more by March 15 will be included on a panel that will be a permanent part of the mural. Those who donate $500 or more will also receive a market T-shirt and shopping tote.

Donations made out to the Haymaker Farmers' Market Mural Project can be mailed to Kelly Ferry at 875 Vine St., Kent OH 44240.

Donors of all amounts will be recognized at the mural unveiling, which Ferry hopes to hold in late June or early July. Holden students will attend the unveiling celebration to “read their poetry and see their words transformed into an important piece of the fabric of Kent,” she said.

The winter version of the market will resume from 9 a.m. to noon March 17 at Theodore Roosevelt High School. Details about other winter sessions can be found on the market's website. Opening day for the outdoor market under the Haymaker bridge will be May 18.
