Memorial Library Linda Denton I don't know what Puxatawny Phil discovered on Groundhog Day in Pennsylvania, but any of the lit- tle critters who poked their noses out of their nests in Kentucky on February 2nd, definitely saw their shadows. Legend has it, that means we're in for at least another month of winter weather. If legend proves true, we could need lots of good reading on hand. A little fast-paced action and adventure might do the trick. If you enjoy winter weather, you'll find lots more of it in Louis L'Amour's Last of the Breed. It takes you back to the 1980s and Soviet Russia, where U.S. Air Force Major Joseph "Joe Mack" Makatozi, a Native American pilot, is forced down, captured, and escapes into the wilds of Siberia, where he has to live by his wits, as he makes his way toward the "Bering Straights and finds a way -home. The publishers say this book "is a stunning appreciation of the ; unspoiled majesty and treachery of ;the Siberian land of the Native American character, who must tri- i umph over it." My brother, a for- mer Green Beret, and I both read this one a few years ago and loved it. , Clive Cussler's Valhalla Rising is a mix of myth, legend and pres- : ent-day technology, with the action set in 2003, when a luxury liner sinks and Dirk Pitt is sent to rescue Whitt.

Robert Ludlum is known for his conspiracy-based action adven- tures, among which is the story of Jason Bourne, which starts with The Bourne Identity and continues with The Bourne Supremacy, which is the one we'll deal with here. Jason Bourne was an assassin feared around the world. The thing is, he wasn't real. He was made up in order to find the real killer, Carlos the Jackal. The Bourne Supremacy begins with worldwide consternation at Jason Bourne's supposed return from the dead and an expected impending reign of ter- ror. Some powerful people know he never existed, some are thoroughly convinced that he did, but was sup- posed to be dead, and now, nobody knows what to think. The poor pro- fessor who played the part of Jason, is dragged back into the fray and the action is pretty much non-stop from there on. Another author known for his action adventures, though his are more technical as a general rule, is Tom Clancy. If you like series adventures, but with books that stand on their own, those that fea- ture Jack Ryan can' be beat. He shows up first in The Hunt for Red _Q.c.Ig.E, was next seen in Patriot Games, went on to the Cardinal of the Kremlin...Clear and Present ...The Sum of All Fears... Debt of Honor...and Executive Orders. I've read all these and enjoyed them, but I understand that there are two newer than I haven't read yet. Jack has another starring role in The Be and the Dragon, released in 2000, and a supporting role in Red Rabbit, released in 2002, when he is younger. The character of Jack has been played on the silver screen by Harrison Ford, Alec Baldwin and, more recently, Ben Affieck. If you prefer large print books, check out Alton Gransky.'s Vanished, in which retired Navy Captain J.D. Stanton is called out of retirement to investigate the dis- appearance of the people of an entire town. "Food on dinner plates, gas nozzles still in cars at filling stations...whatever happened took these people completely by surprise. But took them where?" asks the publishers. You'll presum- ably find out in this second J.D. Stanton mystery. Kids are not only being turned on to reading by Harry Potter, there are now Graphic novels, that are, according to Children's Librarian Ginger Kincaid, "The hottest thing sweeping libraries across the nation, and have increased circula- tion of everything on library shelves." Graphic novels (stand- alone stories in comic form, pub- lished as books), are pretty popular with adults, too, since they are the rown-up version of comic books. mdn those you can find on Bath County's shelves are The Very Best of Spiderman. sci-fi action adven- ture from Marvel Comics, and BONE.

The de- cision was based on NAIT's site visit to the Department of Industrial Edu: cation and Technology in April, ac- cording to Dr. Ahmad Zargari, de- partment chair. "To maintain our accreditation, is an indication of high-quality pro- grams," he said. "To even be accred- ited in the first place, you have to have quality programs, and it is due to the collaboration of our faculty, staff and administrators, that we have earned this." During the site visit, the depart- ment had to meet 62 standards set by NAIT, which is the premiere profes- sional association and accrediting agency of Industrial Technology pro- grams in the U.S. Based in Ann Ar- bor, Michigan, it is supported and endorsed by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) and the Association for Specialized Professional Accreditors (ASPA). NAIT accredits 107 program options in 51 educational institutions: Dr. Zargari said ...... ; a lh;hl yh;:, MSU's Industrial .Educal and Technology Department currently offers tbur technology options for baccalaureate degree students: con- struction/mining; electrical/electron- ics; computer-aided graphic design (formerly graphic communications technology); and manufacturing/ro- botics. Completing MSU's degree requirements in this career area, rath- er than at other institutions, saves students a big step once they have finished their studies, according to Dr. Zargari. "Because we are accredited, our graduates automatically become Certified Industrial Technologists (CITs)," he said. "Ifa program is not accredited, they have to take a sepa- rate exam before being certified." Additional information about MSU's Industrial Technology pro- grams is available by calling the de- partment, at 1-606-783-2013. MSU Founders Day Award for university service goes to Allen A retired high school teacher who served Morehead State University as a volunteer for 50 years is the 2003 recipient of the Founders Day Award for University Service. Merl Fair Allen, of Morehead, will receive the award during the University's Founders Day activities slated for Tuesday, March 18, on the campus. The presentation will be made at the awards luncheon held in Wetherby Gymnasium, beginning at 11:30 a.m. "This award is given to someone who has supported the University over a sustained period and Mrs. Allen is most deserving in view of her wonderful volunteer service," said MSU President Ronald G. Ea- glin. "She has contributed greatly of her time and expertise to the MSU Alumni Association and the MSU Foundation, as well as intercolle- giate athletics."
