County Councilwoman Cathy Bevins recognizes the winners of the STEM fairs of the elementary schools in her district.
Two years ago County Councilwoman Cathy Bevins was invited to be a judge at a science fair at Hawthorne Elementary School. The Oliver Beach Democrat thought she would just be there a short time, make a few simple judging decisions and be done. That was anything but the case as Bevins was at the school for hours and took her time examining each project. “I looked at every project and each one was better than the one before,” Bevins said. “Their hard work really inspired me.” That inspiration led Bevins to reach out to the elementary schools in the Sixth District and find a way to recognize the winners of the science fairs at their respective schools. On Thursday, those students gathered at Chesapeake High School in Essex on as Bevins …

Stories of overcoming adversity highlight the Class of 2011 during Tuesday's commencement at CCBC Essex.
Natalie Bui came to the United States from Vietnam a little more than seven years ago unable to speak English and uncertain about her future. On Tuesday, Bui was one of 244 Chesapeake High School students to graduate during the school’s 33rd commencement exercise, held at CCBC Essex. Bui’s future is now a lot more secure as she will attend Stevenson University in the fall with plans on majoring in nursing. “It was difficult when we first came here because of the language barrier,” said Bui, who arrived in America with her mother Denise and younger brother Nathan. “We started with nothing, but my mom wanted us to have the opportunity to receive a better education.” Bui said she wasn’t always sure college was an option, but credits her …

Newman family makes commitment to follow through on New Year's Resolution in the New Year.
As the 2010 comes to a close, the inevitable end of the year question comes about. "What's my New Year's Resolution?" Most of us will say something simple like losing weight, eating healthy, getting a new job, continuing your education. The "Typical" goals and dreams we either conquer or fail at. But, are these simple goals really so uncomplicated? I'd say no, and so would most of the Newman Family. Jim Newman Sr., 41, supervisor at Western Pest Control, said his New Year's Resolution was to not only continue his newly acquired workout regime with his family, but to add an addition to his home. "I want to expand on my house in order to increase the equity on my home and provide a larger living space for my family. I plan on doing this by …

List of world's most powerful people leads to differing opinions on the definition of what is "power."
I pose this question to you society: What does it mean to have power? According to Yahoo's 2010 Most Powerful People on Earth, "There are 6.8 Billion people on the planet. These are the 68 who matter." Sixth-eight people? That's less than 1 millionth percent of Earth's population. How do you make this kind of list? Well, you have to hold a high position in the government, be a religious figure, a company CEO, an entrepreneur or an outlaw. If you fall under one of these categories, then you're one step closer to being on the VP list of most powerful people. If not, then you're no different than the majority of Earth. So, welcome to the club. Yahoo first looked at each category in four different dimensions; the size of their "followers," …
