Nevada Rural Summit meeting Rural Nevada continues to be impacted by state, na- tional and local changes. The Second Annual Nevada Rural Summit October 15-16 in Mesquite will focus on key components of rural community success, from leader- ship to health care to education, and will explore both the challenges and opportunities facing Nevada's rural com- munities. This year's summit, titled "Grassroots Community In- volvement, Networking, Partnerships and Collaboration: The Keys to Future Success," is inviting concerned rural Nevadans to discuss and learn about interrelated rural policy issues and priorities on topics such as rural health, economic development, education, housing, infrastruc- ture and leadership. This year's conference will put special focus on federal lands issues and on successful partner- ships with federal lands agencies. Experts will share infor- mation and guide discussions focused on community- "* based solutions. In addition, the conference provides information about national trends that will impact rural Nevada. An added benefit for attendees is the opportunity to exchange infor- mation and develop partnerships. The conference has been organized by the following partners: Nevada Cooperative Extension, Clark County, USDA - Rural Development, University of Nevada Center for Economic Development, UNR, Natural Resource Conservation Service, University of Nevada, School of Medicine, Office of Rural Health, Nevada Rural School District Alliance, Nevada Associa- tion of Counties, Nevada Business Services, and the Ne- vada Commission on Economic Development. Nine panel discussions will address the following is- sues during the two-day conference: * "What's In Store for Rural Economic Development?" * "Collective Issues in Rural Education" * "Rural Health - Models That Work" * "Social Capital: A Community Stash" * "Tap Turning and Home Building: How to Make it Happen" * "Federal Lands and Rural Economic Development" * "Federal Land Partnerships - Success Stories" * "Does Growth Pay?" * "What the Heck is Devolution?" In addition, this year's Rural Summit will also provide five pre-summit workshops on grant writing basics, rural telecommunications, volunteerism, the federal lands per- mitting process, and labor employment data and its uses for economic development. The pre-summit workshops will be held on October 15 from 8 a.m. to noon. The conference will begin at 1 p.m. on October 15.

Pahrump Valley Gazette, Thursday, SeW-ember I 1, 1997 13 I III IIII IIII IIII I II IIIIIII 1 IIII History 102 at CCSN Community College of Southern Nevada's Extension Courses will offer History 102 (Reconstruction to the Present) for the first time in several years in Pahrump this fall. The class will meet Thursdays 6-9 p.m. at the Pahr- ump Valley High School and be taught by Paul J. Schmitt. Mr. Schmitt, who holds a Bachelor of Science in Geography from Arizona State University and a Masters of Arts in American History from University of Nevada, Las Vegas, has been teaching at CCSN since 1993. During that time he has taught History 101 and History 102, as well as World Geography. Asked about his training in the two subjects Mr. Schmitt replied, "I believe the two fields complement each other. History is often affected by geog- raphy, and geography is unquestionably often affected by history." Asked about his teaching philosophy, Mr. Schmitt replied, "I think most college students try to avoid history because they remember high school history and having to remember useless dates. I don't believe in dates, except as a reference. I try to show my classes the significance history has to their present world. For example, I can show how the events in Bosnia today arc a consequence of Gexa'ge Washington's actions in Western Pennsylvania in 1758 that started the French and Indian War. History deesn't happen in a vacuum. I want my students to under- stand why something happened and its effect, not when it happened."
