By | Local NewsWIRE | No Comments

www.horizonssavannah.com

Parents, friends and supporters are invited to celebrate the accomplishments of the 145 student participants of the Horizons Summer Enrichment Program on Friday, July 31 at 6 p.m. in Pape Hall on the campus of Savannah Country Day School, 824 Stillwood Drive. The special ceremony will be followed by a catered banquet at 7 p.m. Tickets for the banquet are $5 per person and will be available at the door.

The presentation, which will precede the banquet, will include short performances by each grade level centering around the program’s theme, "Learning About the World Around Us and Beyond." The evening will also include a display of student work, testimonies from students and parents, recognition of Horizons’ sponsors and Board of Directors, and presentations by Executive Director Gail MacPherson and Horizons Board Co-Chair Dr. Paul Pressly.

"We have had a very successful summer serving 145 students," says MacPherson. "All it takes is to hear the testimonials of the students and see the results of the testing to realize that this program is worth every minute that we spend preparing for it."

The program, which is open to rising Kindergarteners through seventh graders from local public schools, is an academic, cultural and recreational enrichment program that enables students from diverse, low-income populations to realize their full potential. Horizons strives to develop the whole child through experiences that build problem-solving skills, foster awareness of community responsibility, and instill respect for oneself and others.

Students in the 2009 summer program spent six weeks sharpening their reading, writing and mathematics’ skills, in addition to participating in recreational activities, honing their social skills and participating in frequent field trips.
"Our focus is not only on the whole child, but the families as well, and we definitely have achieved this goal," says MacPherson.

Horizons Savannah is affiliated with Horizons National, which serves more than 1,500 students in 16 cities around the country. The six-week summer session on the campus of Savannah Country Day School began June 22. For more information, please contact Executive Director Gail MacPherson at 912-344-0791 or visit www.horizonssavannah.com.

(SAVANNAH, GA) Martin Melaver will discuss “Living Above the Store”

Sustainable real estate entrepreneur Martin Melaver will talk about his newly released book Aug. 8 in Savannah.
Martin Melaver, CEO of Melaver, Inc., will discuss "Living Above the Store: Building a Business That Creates Value, Inspires Change, and Restores Land and Community" Aug. 8 at Barnes & Noble in Oglethorpe Mall at 2 p.m.

The book has been called "visionary" and "truly superb work." Paul Hawken, the author of "The Ecology of Commerce," says Melaver "breaks the mold on business writing." Ray Anderson of Interface wrote the foreword.

"’Living Above the Store’ is the right book for these difficult times, when business needs to regain trust," writes Marc Gunther, contributing editor of Fortune. "Melaver starts with specific stories of running a family business, sharing successes and failures, frustrations and joys, and then broadens out to illuminate general principles for running a sustainable business. These stories still stick in my mind, long after I have put the book away."

The economic crash of late 2008 is just the latest evidence of the truth that many have known for so long: that too much of our modern economy is based on a house of cards. We need businesses that not only factor their impact on people and places into their equations for success but also strive to restore the communities and environments in which they operate. How can this be done?
In "Living Above the Store," Martin Melaver provides a roadmap for creating such a business. It’s not only a "how to" but a "why to" that challenges business as usual to change.

"Living Above the Store" brings us into the story of Savannah-based Melaver, Inc., a third-generation, 70-year-old family real estate business, as it evolves toward becoming a thought and product leader in sustainable business practices. It is part business management theory and part case study, where sustainable principles meet sustainable practices, always grounded in day-to-day practice.

Melaver’s grandmother started a corner grocery store in Savannah that became a regional grocery chain, M&M Supermarkets. When the grocery business was sold in 1985, the newly formed Melaver, Inc. turned its attention to real estate holdings. Martin Melaver took over in 1992. The company has a national reputation as a leader in sustainable development, having developed the first all-retail LEED shopping center in the country, Abercorn Common, including the first LEED McDonald’s worldwide. It also developed one of the first LEED certified buildings in the U.S. which is also on the National Register of Historic Places.

"Living Above the Store" demonstrates how to:

· Adopt a business model that provides for economic success while contributing to society and the environment
· Shape a business culture that is restorative to a workforce by helping employees realize their highest potential
· Leverage an ethos within a business that "ripples outward" to foster restoration of both land and community
· Embrace a notion of limits to growth
· Reframe ideas about competition, proprietary knowledge, and business success

"Living Above the Store" is for readers who care about issues of community and sustainability as well as for those who want to learn more about how a socially responsible business can first redefine, and then find, success.

Martin Melaver grew up in Savannah, Georgia and currently serves as the Board Chair of the Georgia Conservancy, Board member of The Ossabaw Island Foundation, Savannah Country Day School, Skidaway Institute of Oceanography, and the Coalition of Environmental Jewish Leadership (COEJL).

(SAVANNAH, GA) The Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society will hold Summer Camp in Savannah

By | Local NewsWIRE | No Comments

http://www.ldssga.org

The Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society has proudly launched a Summer Camp for children with Down Syndrome.  The first camp was recently held in Springfield, GA and was a great success.  The LDSS will be holding its next summer camp in Savannah at Marsh Point Elementary School. The six day program will be held: July 27th, 29th, and 31st and August 3rd, 5th, and 7th beginning each day at 9AM and running through 12:30PM.  Camps are funded in part by money raised through the organization’s annual Down Syndrome Buddy Walk held each October—requiring participants to pay just $30 for the three day camp.  For more information or to register, contact John Bogardus at (912) 728-8505.  http://www.ldssga.org

About the Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society’s Summer Camp:
The camp is geared for children (ages 3 to 6) with Down Syndrome.  Many educational and recreational activities are designed with these special kids in mind, in an effort to bridge the summer months to the upcoming school year, lessening the loss of gains that these children work so hard to achieve.  Speech, physical and occupational therapists are on board to help campers exercise motor and speech skills among other areas that may need improvement.  Children are given the opportunity for continued growth and development, while having fun!
 
Parents of some of the recent campers say that it was a great experience for their child, building their confidence and keeping them active until the school year starts again.  Molly Marchese, mother to a child with Down syndrome and an organizer of Camp Buddy, said, “They are all fast friends. They love people. They have the most positive personalities."

About the Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society:
The Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society is a family support group to benefit people with Down syndrome and their families through local leadership in support, outreach, education and advocacy.  The fourth annual Buddy Walk is planned for October 3, 2009 at Forsyth Park.  During October, National Down Syndrome Awareness Month, more than 300 Buddy Walks will occur throughout the United States.  Last year nearly 1,600 people came out to support Down syndrome awareness. For more information about the 2009 Buddy Walk, please call John or Candy Bogardus at (912) 728-8505.  http://www.ldssga.org

(DUBLIN, GA) Car Allowance Rebate System (CARS) Newell Recycling

By | Local NewsWIRE | No Comments

www.newellrecycling.com
www.CARS.gov

Newell Recycling, one of the largest recyclers and processors of recycled metals in the Southeast, encourages consumers to take advantage of the recently enacted Car Allowance Rebate System (CARS), which President Obama signed into law recently. CARS is a government program that enables consumers to trade in their less fuel efficient vehicles for new, more efficient vehicles.
 
"We are very excited about CARS, which is commonly referred to as Cash For Clunkers, and are looking forward to participating in this worthwhile program," says Frank Goulding, Vice President of Marketing at Newell Recycling. "The NHTSA is currently writing implementing regulations for recently enacted legislation. We expect to see these rules in the next 60 to 90 days."
 
Newell Recycling currently operates two shredder plants in Atlanta and one in Savannah. The 6,000 hp shredder plants are capable of grinding the equivalent of 170 cars per hour into fist-sized pieces. In addition to automobiles, the shredder also processes appliances and demolition scrap. The technology allows Newell Recycling to separate the steel and nonferrous metals into a valuable, furnace-ready raw material for steel mills, foundries and smelters. The metal produced by the shredder can be converted into new metals more easily and cost-effectively than mining the earth, thus saving precious natural resources.
 
In addition to the three shredder plants, Newell Recycling has recycling facilities throughout the Southeast in locations including Allendale, Augusta, Doraville, East Point, Elberton, Lithia Springs, Macon, Rome, Savannah and Statesboro, Georgia. The facilities all accept vehicles for recycling.
Founded in San Antonio, Texas in 1935 by Mr. Alton Scott Newell, a pioneer in the scrap metal industry who also invented the Automobile Shredder, Newell Recycling is recognized as a worldwide leader in ferrous and non-ferrous metal recycling, research and technology. For more information on the company, its locations and hours of operation, and more, please visit Newell Recycling. For more information on CARS and participation requirements, please visit CARS.
