You Say You Want a Revolution? - How the American Experiment in Self Government Developed. There is a fine art to governing. As we will see in this class, there is a reason many of our institutions work - or don't work - today. Join Russ Gifford for this detailed, but lighter look at the people and personalities that decided how the American system of government came to be. We must hang together, or we will surely hang separately. - Ben Franklin But in the time after the Revolution, another revered founding father would counter. Unions, like marriages sometimes fall short of happiness, but this is owing to the parties themselves who rush into it without due consideration or fail. in their conduct towards each other afterward. - Samuel Adams Few Americans know much about the original government that formed after the Revolution. That period between winning the war, and the coming of the Constitution is a blank spot to most Americans. We celebrate 1776 for the Declaration of Independence. And we might or might not remember it took seven long years of fighting before the British finally said, Enough. With the coming of 1783 and the treaty that made peace possible, suddenly thirteen colonies that had decided to 'hang together' were more than happy to now go their separate ways. But they soon found they were forced to remain somewhat connected. Or were they? Some of the most ardent revolutionaries, like Sam Adams, were not sold on the idea. I confess, as I enter the Building I stumble at the Threshold. I meet with a National Government, instead of a Federal Union of Sovereign States. - Samuel Adams But Patrick Henry made Adams look tame: My great objection to this Government is, that it does not leave us the means of defending our rights, or of waging war against tyrants. .The officers of Congress, may come upon you now, fortified with all the terrors of paramount federal authority. - Patrick Henry What was the original Union - the Articles of Confederation? And how did the Constitution come to replace it? Join Russ Gifford and explore the steps from the Revolution to the Articles of Confederation, and finally, the creation of the Constitution. The goal is to see how it all developed, and why. Part 1: From the Revolution to a Functioning Government: 1783 to 1792 - In the first class, we will look at a quick look at the latter years of the Revolution and see how it was possible for the tiny American colonies to throw off the yoke of colonial rule. (Hint - thank the French.) Then we will see how the independent colonies structured their national government. (Hint - badly.) In this period, we will look at the major events of that time, and the different bodies of power in government - and the names we know, and the ones we have forgotten. (Hint - you will recognize most of them - but not all.) We will also see WHY we don't know those others today. (Hint - Winners write the histories.) Part 2: The Big Picture - Representative Government From the earliest moments on the shores of the new country, town meetings were part of self-determination. It was the ideal process of decision-making. Except, of course, it was difficult. While town hall meetings were good, it became apparent that Representative government was necessary. Representatives, chosen from the best of the community, were needed. From the very beginning, Americans knew the House of Representatives would be the most important part of the American government that was yet to be developed. The House would be the Voice of the People. But the States realized, Wait -who looks after the State's rights to govern? Thus, in the original compromise, the Senate - the Voice of the States came into being. Why this compromise, and how each of these bodies have evolved is part of the story of Representative Government. Part 3: The Executive, and the Judiciary But the key in the minds of the Debates on the Constitution was, How can we avoid the impossibility of any movement at all on bills between the various 'sovereign' states? In the last moments of the agreement, many parts came into being. We will see the original ideas on the Constitution, again, via quotes, and how the Courts were envisioned. Which may be a real surprise. The Presidency -Is, what, exactly? The Courts - but. wait a minute! Who said he could do THAT??? Join Russ Gifford, as he uses the writings, the papers, and the quotes of the people on the ground to see how this all developed. But - you may be surprised.

In the digital age taking photographs is much easier than it used to be. But that doesn't mean we all take better photographs. In this class, you will learn from a professional photographer how to dramatically improve your technique. Making better photographs involves making the image more compelling through various techniques such as creative lighting, composition, and design elements. But most importantly, it is learning to see the image before pressing the shutter button. In this five-week course, you will explore various compositional design elements such as the rule of thirds, leading lines, the use of silhouettes, and seeing shapes and patterns. The class will also explore the use of filters and various types of available lighting to achieve certain effects, which can include shooting on bright sunlit days, cloudy overcast days, in open shade and on rainy days. The class will discuss using appropriate lenses for photographing certain types of images such as landscapes and portraiture. But, as always, rules are made to be broken. And breaking some of these rules during the class will be encouraged! Students will shoot photos to share with other class members in the next class meeting. These will be based on simple assignments from the instructor that will allow students to explore new photographic ideas. Instructor Jerry Mennenga has worked for various daily newspaper publications for over 25 years in Illinois, Texas, Louisiana, California and Iowa. He has covered a variety of photographic assignments at these various publications and continues to make photographs simply for the fun and joy of it. He creates images for a blog he writes, www.lostinsiouxland.com.

Don't Know Much About - A new series of classes, combining the idea of Lifelong Learning and a road trip for on-the-spot learning! Following in the footsteps of the old song - we'll call it, Don't Know Much About . This program will look at different aspects of our region, and perhaps the things we should know, but don't. Classes can deal with Civics or History, Business or Local Policy, Police or Government, the Legal System, or what the city can do about business development, local improvement efforts, or the structure of local government. First up - Don't Know Much About . State Government! Everyone knows about State Government, right? We all know all the different states in the Union, and where they are. But those of us in Siouxland might be more aware than most that states all have their own rules they follow - and those rules are different from state to state. This is on display for us every day, in the different rules that apply to YOU, depending on which side of which river you are standing. How do states differ, and why? Depending on the situation, this is an important question. You might find out the hard way that ignorance of the law is no excuse. What do State Governments control, and how do they exercise that power? What rights do each of these states guarantee a citizen? What does a state owe a citizen, and what does a citizen owe their state? In our cases, we will get down to specific differences between the three states that make up our region. Bring your best 'surprise' story to share with the class.

Join Russ Gifford as we look at the development of the uniquely American Private Detective novel. Along the way, we will use these books to view America at the moment in time when everything seems to be changing fast - the 1920s. From 1920-1940, Dashiell Hammett starts with the characters Continental Op and Sam Spade, and don't forget the Thin Man. We'll see how Raymond Chandler followed in his footsteps with Philip Marlowe. These stories set readers on the edge of their seats in the 1920s, and both authors would soon do the same with movies. The Maltese Falcon would be filmed three times before they find the right person to play Sam Spade. Bogart would put his stamp on Spade, but then go on to play the ultra-cool Philip Marlowe in Chandler's The Big Sleep. But how do the books compare to the movies? And what influence do the books, the characters, the authors, and the stories have in our time? Ah, that is the mystery we will pursue in this talk. Enjoy this glimpse into the novels, the books, the cities, and the times of Hammett, Chandler, Spade, and Marlowe.

As a child did you always admire horses from afar? Have you wanted to learn more about horses? Whether or not you have ever been around a horse, this class will make you more confident around them. Learning to Communicate with Horses is a non-riding horse class for adults 50 and over who have always wanted to learn about these majestic creatures. This half-day class will teach you safe communication with horses. You'll experience a silky muzzle, warmth of breath and the feeling of serenity as you connect with a horse. Learn how horses communicate with each other, and how to safely interact and engage in activities that encourage bonding between horse and human. Sometimes this bond can help the human heart to heal when there has been a loss or sad experience or traumatic incident in a person's life. At the end of the workshop, you will have enough confidence and knowledge to be comfortable in the presence of the horses. We also hope you might consider taking our class Silver Saddles (see below) which will provide a gentle introduction to horsemanship. Classes are held at the S.T.A.R.S. Riding Center just 1 ½ miles north of Mike's Saloon on Hamilton Boulevard. Please dress comfortably (no sandals please!) in layers and bring a sack lunch. Light refreshments and beverages will be provided. Participants must be fit enough to stand and walk on uneven surfaces.

You don't have to be a child or young adult to discover the magic of horses and horse-riding. This wonderful program, created and taught by the skilled staff of S.T.A.R.S (Special Troopers Adaptive Riding School) in Sioux City, is designed for Lifelong Learning members over 50 who want to combine fitness activities with a search for new experiences. The Silver Saddles program will provide you with an understanding of horses, safe interaction around them and an opportunity to develop elementary skills in horse riding. The S.T.A.R.S. staff has had a great deal of experience working with individuals who have had little or no previous interaction with horses. You will learn how to bond with horses, feed them and eventually enjoy a gentle ride at the S.T.A.R.S. facility. Similar programs around the country have found that seniors can improve balance, flexibility and endurance as a result of this kind of activity. There are also psychological benefits: developing a sense of meaning, promoting social connections and acquiring a sense of accomplishment.

Roald Dahl and Matilda the Musical You may be familiar with the name of Roald Dahl as the author of the children's classics Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, The Witches, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and more, but there is so much more to this complicated and accomplished man. In anticipation of Reach Youth and Family Theatre's upcoming production of Matilda the Musical, we'll peek into his adventure-packed life and discuss the hit musical that has been created from one of his extraordinary books. Born in Wales of Norwegian immigrant parents, Dahl grew up speaking Norwegian. His father, a wealthy shipbroker, died when he was three, but Dahl was educated in English boarding schools according to his father's wishes.  Those of us who only know him from his writing for children will not be aware of his adventures in Africa with the Shell Oil Company leading up to World War II. His exploits as a fighter pilot during the war, including a harrowing crash, led to his certification as an ace. Later in the war he was a diplomat in Washington, D.C., involved in intelligence and espionage.  His writing career developed because of his wartime experiences that transpired from a meeting with C. S. Forrester. That led to a children's book that told of the gremlins which were part of RAF folklore. Other books for children that we are most familiar with followed. Simultaneously he was writing stories for adults that often-involved macabre settings and twist endings. Many of these ended up in popular magazines of the time as well as being collected into books and used on televisions shows such as Alfred Hitchcock Presents and The Twilight Zone. He won three Edgar Awards from the Mystery Writers of America for this work. There is also his marriage to actress Patricia Neal, his work as a screen writer including You Only Live Twice and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang plus his laudable charity work. We won't want to leave out special attention to his remarkable novel Matilda that was made into a charming film and an award-winning musical. Reach Youth and Family Theatre, one of Sioux City's newest theatrical ventures, will be presenting this show June 21-30. Join Bill McKenny, retired teacher and actor, in the exploration of this truly exceptional renaissance man.
