Obama says goodbye

Robert BurackObama, Chicago, USA - 10 Jan 2017

Sports Editor/Webmaster

bburack16@gmail.com

After eight years of holding the most polarizing job in the world, Barack Obama took center stage to address the nation one last time. The speech took place Wednesday, Jan. 10, from his hometown of Chicago.

“It’s good to be home. My fellow Americans, Michelle and I have been so touched by all the well-wishes we’ve received over the past few weeks. But tonight, it’s my turn to say thanks,” the former president said to start the night.

He went on to discuss the how change can happen, as it can come from ordinary people. He credited the founders of the country for allowing changes and improvements to make the nation a better place.

Looking back at his eight years in office, Obama said he believes that if he had known the outcome ahead of time, he would have been filled with joy. He went on to add, “If I had told you eight years ago that America would reverse a great recession, reboot our auto industry and unleash the longest stretch of job creation in our history…”

One of the notable improvements made was the building of bridges with Cuba. As of now the two countries are on the best terms in years.

Another highlight of his presidency was capturing the man he calls “the mastermind of 9/11,” Osama Bin Laden, after the years of anxiety the terrorist caused not only the United States but large parts of the world.

“And secure the right to health insurance for another 20 million of our fellow citizens – you might have said our sights were set a little too high,” Obama said when looking back at the success of passing the highly controversial Affordable Care Act.

According to a recent poll from Fox News, 50 percent of the country approves of Obamacare. That same poll approved Donald Trump at seven percent less.

As Obama reminisced over his run as president to a highly emotional Chicago attendance, he assured the country that the transfer between him and Trump would be as smooth as possible.

“I committed to President-elect Trump that my administration would ensure the smoothest possible transition, just as President Bush did for me.” This was done to make sure the country remains as wealthy and powerful as ever.

The former president made it clear he had one focus: “the state of our democracy.” He added, “the idea that for all our outward differences, we are all in this together, that we rise or fall as one.”

Bringing up the point that there have been many scary moments in the history of the country, Obama stated that “There have been moments throughout our history that threatened to rupture that solidarity.” He said the future of protecting this country is on our children, making it all the more important to give them the opportunity to get educated.

Obama was proud to reveal the unemployment rate is near a 10-year low and the cost of healthcare is rising the slowest it has in a massive 50 years.

Obama went on to express how happy he is with the country’s progress, but that there is still a long way to go. In particular, he still has concerns over “the laid-off factory worker; the waitress and healthcare worker who struggle to pay the bills.”

Transitioning to thanking those he loves, he started off with his wife Michelle. “For the past 25 years, you’ve been not only my wife and mother of my children but my best friend.” He thanked her for taking on the role she did, even though she never asked for it. Obama ended his thoughts on her by saying she didn’t only make him proud but “You’ve made the country proud.”

Next up were his daughters. “Malia and Sasha, under the strangest of circumstances you have become two amazing young women.” Obama stated that that of all he has done in his life, the thing he is proudest of is being their dad.

Obama moved on to his vice president, “the scrappy kid from Scranton,” Joe Biden who was the former president’s first and best choice as nominee. Obama said it wasn’t just his success as VP, it was that they became like brothers.

As the speech wound down, Obama stated, “My fellow Americans, it has been the honor of my life to serve you.  I won’t stop; in fact, I will be right there with you, as a citizen, for all my days that remain.  For now, whether you’re young or young at heart, I do have one final ask of you as your president – the same thing I asked when you took a chance on me eight years ago.”

The 44th President of the United Stated ended his speech, telling all Americans the story is yet to be written. “Thank you. God bless you. And may God continue to bless the United States of America.”

Movie theater opens near SC4

Sperry’s in downtown Port Huron, unoccupied for well-over a decade according to the Times Herald, is now home to the self-described “boutique” theater, Sperry’s Moviehouse.

“Our theater has been open for just over a month. It opened on Dec. 15,” said assistant theater manager Kaitlyn Szczepkowski.

Szczepkowski also stated that Sperry’s Moviehouse does offer student rates. “We do have a student ticket price that’s seven dollars, and then it jumps up for the evening price,” she said.

Based on pricing available at sperrysmoviehouse.com, this is a 25 cent reduction from the standard daytime ticket price for adults; students also receive a $1.25 discount on evening showings.

Sperry’s Moviehouse is poised to be a versatile entertainment and dining venue for the area, offering 12 screens divided between the first and third floors and a second-floor dinner house.

Szczepkowski believes that the theater fills a need in the community. “We’re actually downtown Port Huron…it’s more convenient for people that live in this area versus having to  head all the way over to the North End,” she said. “I’m hoping it brings more life to downtown…it’s busy, but it could be busier.”

The dinner house attached to the theater is not yet open but will be in the near future. “I believe around the tenth of February…Valentine’s Day we’re going to do a ribbon cutting,” assistant restaurant manager Keith Gram said.

According to Gram, patrons will be able to place online orders to the dinner house when they reserve their tickets and their food will be delivered to them at their seats in the theater.

Sperry’s Moviehouse is also working towards showing more than the standard blockbuster offerings. “We’re looking into independents and…also doing special features,” Gram said. “That’s all a negotiation with studios.”

Construction remains ongoing.

Trump inauguration brings protesters to SC4 campus

After perhaps the most controversial election in U.S. history, businessman Donald John Trump has officially been sworn into office as the 45th president of the United States. In his inaugural address, Trump declared that no man or woman shall any longer be forgotten, and the power has returned to the people at last.
Trump said, “January 20, 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.” However, Trump’s inauguration has been met with much backlash from the American people. Recently, people have been converging all over the country to object to Donald Trump becoming the president, even on SC4’s very own campus.
In Port Huron, an activist group, the Michigan People’s Defense Network, organized a gathering on Inauguration Day, Friday, Jan. 20. Those wishing to express disapproval for Trump were asked to assemble at the corners of Erie and McMorran, although the group claims the reasons behind the protest are not strictly about Trump.
The Michigan People’s Defense Network stated that they are a part of the Workers World Party, a socialist organization founded in the late 1950s to fight racism and fascism and intended to stand up for the rights of all people worldwide, especially those under racist or fascist attack. The intention of the protest was not to just speak out about Trump’s presidency itself, but the types of ideas that following Trump encourages.
The group claims that while Trump is unfit to be President, it is the types of people he rallies underneath him and the beliefs those people hold that are more worrisome.
The Michigan People’s Defense Network argues that the ideas Trump holds have emboldened fascist and racist ideas, and because of this Trump has garnered legitimate Nazi and KKK support. The group said it is important to unite in opposition to such ideologies and that such hateful behavior will not be tolerated.
When asked why they decided to organize a protest in Port Huron, the group replied that Port Huron voted overwhelmingly in favor of Trump, and so it is important to combat and stand against the racist and fascist types who support Trump. Michigan is leading in hate crime as it is, and so they feel Michigan is one of the places that needs to hear their criticism the most.
Local political activist Alexander Smedley attended the protest. Smedley said that Trump was a byproduct of capitalism and the embodiment of fascism in the United States.
Another protester and SC4 student, Chelsey Kielbas, said that protests are one of the only ways for a citizen to get his or her voice out. Making a statement was both protesters’ main reason for attending. Smedley ended by saying, “Fascism is the absolute enemy of all working people.”
The Michigan People’s Defense Network values the solidarity and equality of all people, but they feel uniting alone is not enough.
With enough organization and effort, the group hopes to completely eradicate sexism, fascism and racism together with anti-migrant, anti-Semitic and anti-Islamic attacks.
A member of the Michigan People’s Defense Network calling himself Mond helped organize the event and is also a student at SC4. Mond said, “Capitalism is at a dead end; a revolutionary resistance is necessary. We stand for the liberation of oppressed people worldwide.”

SC4 professor offers solutions to national quandary Democrats, Republicans: None of the Above gives political perspective

Kraig Archer, a professor of sociology here at SC4, has written a book that he believes has timely application to our current political state and that he hopes will motivate readers to pursue alternatives to the current two-party system.
“I would like my book to lead to a new political movement,” Archer said.
Insightful and refreshingly free of party bias, Archer’s book, Democrats, Republicans: None of the Above, offers perspective to our polarized political climate, asserting that as presidential elections draw near it is critical for voters to reassess national issues beyond the labels and conflicts of the Republican and Democratic parties.
Archer’s book examines an extensive range of much-debated governmental issues, covering topics such as the nation’s educational system, immigration, environmental concerns and international relations. In discussing these issues, Archer gives a judicious assessment of the national challenges that he feels the contentious government system is not properly addressing and suggests several practical solutions to national issues, both political and social.
“We all have a future in this country…these type of issues affect the type of future our kids are going to have,” Archer said.
Weighing in at 51 pages, None of the Above is, however, short for its densely packed subject matter, failing to fully clarify several key concepts.
Kraig Archer instructor high resThis lack of explanation could lessen the book’s impact for some readers; at times readers would need specialized political and sociological knowledge to fully understand the subject matter.
When, for example, Archer presents his views on flaws in the structure of the Supreme Court, he cites several cases in order to demonstrate a trend of decisions that he thinks lack foundation in proper constitutional interpretation. The problem here is a lack of elaboration; while Archer’s reasoning is very sound, he does not mention the issues under discussion in each case, slightly undercutting his argument for readers without a knowledge of judicial history.
Nevertheless, these structural imperfections are not entirely negative in their effects, making None of the Above a brief, accessible read, particularly for students and others whose busy schedules make finding time for political study difficult. This brevity makes the book a good entry point into a political education exploring a more balanced, better-informed political worldview.
Archer hopes that after readers finish None of the Above they will be inspired to take action by establishing a third political party to combat the problem of divisions in our present system.
The third political party that Archer proposes would be called the Faith Reform Party and would be founded both on Christian moral principles and on a desire to uphold America as an ever-improving nation.
Ultimately, None of the Above, while lacking in length and definition of terms, is a well-reasoned, skillfully argued and easily read a book that can serve as a stepping stone into a style of independent, intelligent political thought that is unencumbered by excess party polarization.
Archer’s book is available through Amazon.com in both print and e-book format.

St. Clair County Community College and Northwood University signed agreements Tuesday, Dec. 6, for three new 3+1 programs which will allow students to earn a bachelor’s degree from Northwood while enjoying the cost and comfort of SC4 for their first three years.

Bachelor of business administration degrees from Northwood in management, marketing and computer information management will be available to students under the new agreements.

Students can complete 90 credit hours in marketing or 92 credit hours in management and computer information management at SC4 which will transfer to Northwood, where they can complete the final year of the bachelor program. A pathway to the degree will be provided.

“This offers students another option with a guided pathway where they can maximize the amount of credits they can take at their home college, SC4, where they can experience lower costs and can stay with professors they are comfortable with,” SC4 Dean of Occupational Studies Julie Armstrong said. “Then they will have this pathway that takes them elsewhere to finish.”

Located in Midland, Michigan, Northwood is a private university that specializes in business, and has alumni in 120 different countries.

For more information, contact SC4 Director of Advising and Articulation Scott Watson at (810) 989-5824. Visit www.sc4.edu/articulation for information on all of SC4’s articulation agreements.
