Women's Suffrage in the Americas

Professor Stephanie Mitchell, of the Carthage College History Department, will be sharing her research interests in Women's History with us. While women in the United States are celebrating 100 years of being privileged to vote, suffrage movements have seen similar pathways within the continents of the Americas. How women achieved the suffrage varies in each political landscape; similarities will be explored. Women organized across country lines, from South America to Canada, encouraging others on toward progress. Any advance in any country in the Americas always spurred workers in other countries to publish the news in their own publications. Due to this momentum, votes for women progressed from the near impossible prior to World War I to the passage of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1945.

Our Evolving Food Supply/ Future Farming

In this two-part class experience, we will look at the food supply. From the humble beginnings of the agricultural revolution, to farming on a massive scale, and then take a step back to look at the emerging "slow food" movement in urban areas across the United States. We will then explore new growing technologies and businesses that are at the cutting edge of our new food chain. This class will cover hydroponics, aquaponics, permaculture, as well as, look at the new businesses that have emerged in this new sector of horticulture. We will discuss the local food movement and how our global food chain needs to adapt to our growing global population and climate change. The class presenter is Ali Schultz.

Urban Planning - Yes, There Is a Plan.

We all at times wonder what our city or village leaders were thinking as they made decisions affecting their residents. We have invited Ray Forgianni, the retired long-time city planner and director of city development for Kenosha, to give us some background on how those decisions come to be made and some of the constraints under which community leaders must function as they try to do what's best for the majority of residents. He plans to discuss housing, such as where different types should be located (income level, density, etc.) and design considerations. We will learn what goes into attracting and retaining both needed and desirable businesses to our communities. (Where's our Trader Joe's?) Mr. Forgianni will then address transportation planning and what goes into the decisions as to how to get most of us where we need to go.

Travels In South America - to Patagonia and Back

Tom Rutkowski taught English in Racine high schools for thirty years, first at Horlick and later at Walden III where he helped to establish the Walden III Green School. During summer vacations he traveled the world and brought back stories of exploring different cultures and natural wonders to his students. When he retired, he started studying Spanish - mostly for the challenge, but also as a key to open new areas for discovery. In 2018 he and his wife decided to travel to South America to put this knowledge to the test. You will see the cities, historical sites and unique natural settings in Tom's modern (digital) "slide show".

Political Cartoons and Cartooning

John Hambrock grew up in Fort Wayne, Indiana, the youngest of 3 boys of a working family. In high school it was not cartooning that first grabbed his interest, but science, more specifically, marine biology. But as he labored through high school, various events drew his interest toward the arts. After studying at Indiana University, he earned a degree in Graphic Design from the Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida. He worked at a few small and mid-sized design firms. After he started his own business in industrial advertising, packaging and print design, the passion for cartooning began to take hold. It became a reality when he married Anne, a high school friend. She provided the force that helped John realize a life dream. Those living in the Kenosha area may know the ending. Those of us who open the Kenosha News, turn to the comic section, and wrap ourselves with delight while reading the cartoon, "The Brilliant Mind of Edison Lee" - a John and Anne Hambrock production.
