One-armed North Fort Myers athlete finds unexpected passion in wakeboarding

first_imgWhen Aaron Cutler was in kindergarten, he had to learn how to tie his shoes differently than other kids. While most learned the traditional shoe-tying methods of loop, swoop and pull or bunny ears, Cutler couldn’t do either because he had been born without an arm. Instead, he had to learn how the knot worked. He had a similar dilemma years ago when he wanted to learn to wakeboard. “There wasn’t an instruction manual written for me on how to do it,” Cutler said. “I think I kind of like that.”  Former NYPD officer finds unexpected joy patrolling Fort Myers elementary school June 17, 2021 AdvertisementTags: Lee CountyNorth Fort MyersStory2Share Crime stoppers looking for two thieves accused of stealing lumber & power tools June 17, 2021 AdvertisementCutler quit his job and moved to Florida to pursue wakeboarding full time.

College of Music honors distinguished alumni

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Published: May 3, 2021 Thousands of students have graduated from the College of Music over the decades, going on to pursue their dreams in a range of industries across the globe. Every year, the College of Music honors established or emerging trailblazers from among our global alumni community. This spring, we’re proud to recognize Charlene Archibeque (DMA ’69) and Leenya Rideout (BM ’91).Charlene Archibeque (DMA ’69)Originally from a small town south of Columbus, Ohio, called Mount Sterling, Archibeque earned degrees at the University of Michigan and San Diego State University. At Michigan, she was a music education major with her primary instrument being violin, while also training in vocal music and piano. “In San Diego, they had a policy that women were assigned vocal music and men were given the orchestras,” she explains. “So my whole career obviously got started on the vocal track because of that policy in San Diego, which now of course would be illegal, but at that time, nobody thought anything about it. And it turned out that I really loved directing and was quite good at it.”After spending seven years teaching junior high in San Diego, she then moved to Boulder to pursue her doctorate at the University of Colorado Boulder in the 1960s. “I was actually the only woman in the doctoral program at the time,” Archibeque reflects. “And I think [the men] were a little jealous of me because I kept my nose to the grindstone.”She reflects on her time studying in Boulder fondly, describing it as having a small town, western feel: “I loved the school. I loved the teaching faculty. They were all very highly educated and very important people in their respective fields.” She remembers that the college also had one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of choral recordings available, and she loved being able to direct the women’s chorus while teaching classes to non-vocal majors. “I was very happy there,” she says. In 1969, Archibeque became the first woman to ever graduate from the University of Colorado with a DMA. Since then, Archibeque went on to achieve great feats in the choral field, lauding the College of Music for setting her up for an illustrious teaching career.“After a year of paying back my sabbatical to the San Diego Junior College District, I was hired to be the head of the choral program at San Jose State, where I taught for 35 years,” she says. “And the more I taught, the more I thought of myself as a conductor and a teacher. I love this, so I just wanted to pursue it at its highest level.”Now back at the SJSU campus, Archibeque is regarded as one of the foremost choral conductors and teachers in the United States. Her choirs have gone on to complete 16 concert tours around the world; she has conducted in many major halls like Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center, and Royal Albert Hall in London; won prizes for Best Conductor at Spittal, Gorizia and Tallinn International Festivals; presented many clinics and workshops around the world; and presents on numerous panels and conventions. Recently, Archibeque produced a DVD entitled “How to Make a Good Choir Sound Great.” “My belief, which is strongly backed up by practice, is that you can solve many problems of performance and rehearsal by where you place your singers. And of course, interestingly enough, one of my key points is that there should be at least eight feet of space between the singers, which is obviously going to have strong repercussions in today’s turbulent society,” she mentions.In the next few years, Archibeque hopes that she’ll get to share some of her expertise with fellow choir directors and stay connected with fellow musicians from the College of Music. “I think it’s really, really important, that all of us grads who can continue to help keep the music department strong,” she says.Leenya Rideout (BM ’91)Born in Montana but raised in Fort Collins, Rideout’s love of music blossomed from the age of four when her grandparents started paying for Suzuki violin lessons— and when she started acting out operas with her Barbies. “I grew up playing folk music around the campfire with my dad who plays guitar, mandolin and banjo,” Rideout describes. “So, I sort of have that aspect of music too. I’ve even played in a Celtic rock band, country bands and bluegrass.” In addition to playing instruments, Rideout quickly figured out she loved singing and was involved in choirs at Rocky Mountain High School. “I don’t remember ever not singing, and I have recordings of myself on cassette tapes when I was about three. But I didn’t really start studying voice until the University of Colorado.”At the university, Rideout pursued a degree in voice performance with a minor in violin performance. “I also took as much acting and dance as the theatre department would allow,” she says. Now residing in New York City for the past 25 years, Rideout remembers initially hesitating at the thought of moving there after her time in Boulder. “I was a little too scared to move here first. So, I went to Southern California and thought I could do movies, theater and opera there.” She moved in with her brother and various family members and ended up working in a dinner theater in Southern California before performing on a cruise ship for six months. After encouragement to make the big move, she remembers buying a Backstage paper on the newsstand to search for auditions. “I went to a couple of auditions, and the third audition I went to was for Eliza Doolittle in ‘My Fair Lady’, which was an international tour that went all over the United States and Canada,” she recalls. Booking the part, she toured as Eliza for a year and made friends and felt like she had a community in the city.From there, Rideout’s professional life exploded as she attended numerous auditions and did several Off-Broadway projects before booking her first Broadway show— “Cabaret” in 1997. “‘Cabaret’ is one where I played my violin and sang and danced and acted,” she explains. “Who knew that sticking with all of my hobbies and my skills would pay off?” In fact, her most recent job—in a new musical called ‘Shanghai Sonatas’ about Jewish refugees during World War II— was portraying a violin player.With a successful career, Rideout is grateful for her craft but acknowledges the hardships that come with living that lifestyle. “I am so glad and blessed and happy with how my life has been,” she says. “But it’s not an easy thing. And because of that, it’s so rewarding that I get to explore and learn about different cultures, time periods and places all over the world from each show that I do.” Being able to touch people’s lives with the stories she’s able to present keeps her passionate.“I wrote my own musical. It’s a solo show called ‘Wild Abandon’ that got picked up and ran for five weeks Off-Broadway here in New York,” Rideout says. “And people got to see the show that I wrote and composed and that featured songs I wrote along with my mom’s artwork. It was about my mom and me. It’s also about women and their needs being heard in society, even though we’re sometimes silenced. It was so rewarding.”Today, Rideout lives with her husband, who is also an actor, and their dog. “He and I met in a show, having a ‘showmance,’ as I call it,” she recalls. As such, both actors have a deep empathy for each other’s work and lifestyles. She’s also excited that her cast album for “Wild Abandon” is now available online, and she’s thinking carefully about what projects she wants to hop onto next.“I feel like art can do so much right now for the world. The world needs a lot of healing and a lot of bringing people together. Maybe I need to write something else,” she muses. “And I have so many ideas. It’s part of my job in these between times to be excited about a blank piece of paper, as opposed to freaking out. This is a blank piece of paper. And what do I have to say?”Tags:AlumniStringsVoice and Operalast_img read more

JCAA Far Advanced in $4.2 Billion Upgrading Programme

first_imgThe Jamaica Civil Aviation Authority (JCAA) is far advanced in implementing a comprehensive $4.2 billion modernization and upgrading programme to replace major components of its communications, navigation and surveillance systems.This was disclosed by Director General, Nari Williams-Singh, at a recent Jamaica Information Service (JIS) ‘Think Tank’,  held at the agency’s head office, in Kingston.Describing the engagement as an “aggressive” undertaking, Mr. Williams-Singh advised that two new air traffic control towers will be constructed at the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston, and the Sangster International Airport, in Montego Bay, at a cost of  $2.57 billion.“The upgrades will see our radars, automation systems, voice communication and control systems and air traffic control simulation systems upgraded. This is a 21-month project, which has already commenced, and we should see some benefits over the next 12 to 15 months. We are also in contract negotiation stage  for a new instrument landing system to be installed at the Sangster International Airport,” he added.    According to the Director General, several projects have been completed, and  others are ongoing or scheduled for implementation.Mr. Williams-Singh highlighted notable successes which, he said, have resulted from aspects of the project already carried out. These include the commissioning of a newly upgraded microwave radio network for Jamaica’s Flight Information Region, in December 2014.  This network triples the information-carrying capacity of the previous network and minimizes the risk of critical data loss from radar and other sites.The Director General also reported progress with the phased implementation of an Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) technology, consistent with the international thrust to replace radars as the primary mode of aircraft surveillance, by 2017.Through the efforts of the JCAA, Jamaica, as a contracting State of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), continues to maintain international industry tandards.The Director General said that upgrade of its Aeronautical Information Service (AIS) to the more data-centric Aeronautical Information Management (AIM) is to be undertaken,  and that the Authority is currently evaluating bids.The country’s Aeronautical Information Services (AIS) Department and personnel are routinely and consistently relied on to provide and publish vital aeronautical, meteorological, and airspace management information to the local and international aviation community. Air  operators, pilots, and air traffic control staff rely on these critical data and services, such as notices to airmen and aeronautical information publications, routinely provided by the AIS Department, Jamaica is a part of  the international industry stakeholders engaged in activities aimed at enhancing global aviation safety, through the implementation of a Global Aviation Safety Plan (GASP) and the Global Air Navigation Plan (GANP). These encompass a combination of new technologies, methodologies and systems, aimed at improving aviation safety.

Some eye other-catching names on four tries include Joe Roff, Malili Muliaina, Sitiveni Sivivatu, Joeli Vidiri, and Doug Howlett.SIZZLING IN SOWETO2010 was a year South African fans will never forget and for the Vodacom Bulls faithful, it only got better. With the Soccer World Cup taking over, the all-South African final shifted to Soweto’s Orlando Stadium and was duly sold out. The Stormers outscored their hosts two tries to one but once again the ruthless physicality of the Bulls’ pack and the boot of Steyn ensured a 25-17 victory.BUSY IZZYOne of the game’s more divisive characters, Australian international Israel Folau’s talent and ability to burst clear of the defence is unquestionable. In seven seasons with the Tahs, Folau scored a record 60 tries to move past Kiwi duo Doug Howlett (59) and Caleb Ralph (58).AUSSIE RESURGENCEBefore the start of the ‘Sanzar’ era, the Queensland Reds were the kings of ‘Super’ competitions with three wins in 1992, ’94 and ’95. The Brumbies era of dominance faded as quickly as it blew before the Reds once again climbed to the top and shocked the Crusaders in 2011. The Wallabies-laden Tahs edged the Saders three years later in a thrilling 33-32 finale to ensure no match would ever start with a overwhelming degree of certainty.PRIDE OF JOBURGThe Lions, winners of the ’93 Super 6, albeit as Transvaal, were axed from the competition in favour of the Kings in 2013 and many felt the union would never recover. Instead, the franchise bonded like few squads have ever done and re-emerged in the competition as a force to be reckoned with. From the outskirts to finalists three years in a row from 2016 onwards. It’s a fairytale story that unfortunately did not get the ending it deserved.ALSO READ: Super Rugby – Selection of memoriesSADERS HIT DOUBLE FIGURESVodacom Super Rugby was at its most competitive between 2008 and 2016 when the Bulls and Stormers built momentum and the Chiefs and Hurricanes refined their all-out attack approach to put a halt on the Crusaders seemingly endless march towards the trophy. Without a win since their 2008 victory, the men in red and black regrouped and have now won three championships in a row. The Crusaders’ win over the Jaguares in last year’s final saw them clinch their 10th Super Rugby title.CLASSY CARTERLooking through the history books, Dan Carter’s feats will no doubt remain for some time. One of the most gifted players of his generation, the Crusaders No 10 ranks one in all-time points, conversions and penalties part and sits as a three-time championship winner.QUICK OFF THE MARKTrying to stop Bryan Habana in a full-flight is no easy feat and the predatory poacher moved hastily to put his name in the record books when he took just eight seconds to score for the Stormers against the Cheetahs in 2011. Unsurprisingly, the mark has not been troubled since.ENIGMA OF ELTON Much maligned at international level he may be, but there’s no denying Lions flyhalf Elton Jantjies’ class this level. Already fourth on the all-time points list and safely in the history books with his nine penalties in a single outing (vs the Cheetahs in 2012), Jantjies freely attacks the gainline as the conductor of the Joburg-side’s attacking gameplan, and was central to that team reaching three consecutive finals.MOVING TARGETNgani Laumape’s 15 tries in the 2017 tied a long-standing record shared by Joe Roff (Brumbies – 1997) and Rico Gear (Crusaders- 2005). It was a mark that lasted just one more year as Hurricanes flyer Ben Lam, a convert from sevens, went clear at the top with a staggering 16 during the 2018 season.BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FORHowever the politics played out, Sanzar’s approval for the Jaguares and Sunwolves’ elevation to Super status has not entirely suited South Africa. The Japanese union famously did not vote in favour of South Africa to host the 2023 World Cup and playing both teams has seen the travel demands increase. Oh, and the Jaguares have proven to be a formidable side and easily topped the SA conference last year in another blow to the local best intentions.CENTURION ALONETo play 100 consecutive games in this sport is a masterful achievement with form, injury and new rivals always in play. Only one player can claim the honour with Caleb Ralph’s 100 in a row for the Blues and Crusaders a unique achievement. Spare a thought for Bulls’ flank Pedri Wannenburg who managed 99.DOUBLE TONOnly one player has reached the milestone of 200 appearances and to do it as a prop makes it a worthwhile cause for celebration. That honour falls to Crusaders stalwart Wyatt Crockett, who served his side with distinction for 13 seasons.*Follow us on our new Instagram journey by clicking here*The full feature is available in our April of SA Rugby magazine, which is now on sale.

Character is destiny OR man is the architect of his own fate

first_imgThe ancient masters like Aristotle propounded the theory that the tragedy in the life of man issues from a flaw in his own character. The rebound of his own acts contributes to his ruin. Man himself is the architect of his destiny. Whether a man suffers or prospers will depend upon a man’s temperament, his action and his doings. Good action leads to good results.Whereas, ill-considered actions have unpleasant and even disastrous consequences. Nothing can tie down a man of fortitude. However, the debate has been unending for those who believe that man is ranged against predestined forces of life. To them, fate determines our joy and sufferings. Yet, how far fate meddles with the affairs of man is an unanswerable question. Those who succeed owe their success to their efforts. On the contrary, failure is attributed to destiny.last_img read more
