The Justice Club hosted a coat drive at various locations throughout Incline Village, including Sierra Nevada College, Raley’s and IV Coffee Lab for a month in the fall. The quality and quantity of donations far exceeded the clubs’ goals and provided an array of items, such as women’s ski coats and professional blazers, children’s snow onesies, and men’s technical backcountry ski gear.
Students, faculty and the public are invited to the Fall Term Senior Projects/Senior Portfolios from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 4, in TCES 139.

Humanities Instructor Jared Stanley shared his work Sunday, Nov. 10, during an afternoon of poetry titled, “It Calls from the Creek,” hosted by ART OnSite. The organization’s mission is to strengthen the ties between the Nevada City community, the environment and the arts through outdoor art installations along the Deer Creek Tribute Trail.
Jared Stanley is a member of the public art group Unmanned Minerals which created “It Calls From the Creek,” a series of 10 installations along the Deer Creek Tribute Trail in Nevada City. Jared is the author of two books, “Weeds” and “Book Made of Forest,” as well as other published work. The tribute trail will be open through September 2014.
Hidden away on the second floor of Prim Library outside the office of Dr. Robert King, the only sounds pervading the still air are whispered questions and footsteps echoing through the grates from the floors above. The silence is broken when the doors swing open to permit two professors walking up the stairs, laughing and planning a meeting “for this time next week.”
King pulls a chair out across the desk, a plaid button-up shirt sticking out the bottom of his navy cardigan, and worn Vans sticking out from underneath his pants. He pushed his thick rimmed glasses up further on his nose, one of Sierra Nevada College’s younger Ph.D holding professors, and began to talk quickly and without pause.
