Nothing says summer like the Saturday Produce Market at Richland Community College. Local vendors will be selling fresh fruit, vegetables, flowers, and all kinds of special seasonal items in the parking lot of the National Sequestration Education Center. When you support the produce market, you’re also supporting the students involved with Richland Student Farms. For more information, visit the Richland Student Farms Facebook page.
Wanted: More Truck Drivers. It is a job advertisement that is far too common in our local region. The importance of trucking is communicated by the industry adage: “If you bought it, a truck brought it.” With over eighty percent of all communities in the United States relying exclusively on trucks to deliver goods, it takes a well-trained workforce to keep our economy rolling. According to the Journal of Commerce, the number of truck drivers is approximately nine percent below its peak in 2007 when the industry supplied work for 1.7 million drivers.
From April 21 through the 24, Richland Community College hosted a series of events for the “Be a Hero” Campaign. The purpose of the campaign was to promote organ/tissue donor awareness and to register new individuals to the organ/tissue donor registry.
Secretary of State Jesse White kicked off the campaign on April 21 at a press conference in the Mueller Student Center. Mr. White, whose sister is a recipient of a lifesaving kidney, discussed the importance of organ/tissue donation and encouraged others to consider registering to become a donor.
