December s bright red poinsettias give way to red hearts. December s luncheon garnered over $1,000 in the red and green bags for AAUW funds. An anonymous donor has made a separate, and generous, gift to the Branch. She has agreed to add it to the NCCWSL funds. The luncheon also provided some red faces the day after! Judy Steeh gallantly reported that she had already been a Named Gift Honoree in No wonder she was so surprised to be named this year! As you know, the policy is that we not honor the same person twice. Several things contributed to Judy s receiving nominations and votes again. First, the Directory somehow has the honoree listed as Judith Anne Stark, so that anyone checking whether Judy Steeh was eligible this year would believe that she was indeed, and wonder why she d not been previously honored. Second, the recent practice of keeping the recipients a secret until the luncheon prevented anyone, especially Judy, from pointing out her ineligibility. And, third, the committee voting on giving the honors included no one who remembered that far back. In our defense, there were four women who received nearly the same number of votes, so no one was deprived by just barely missing out. Also, Judy has continued to make outstanding contributions to our branch over the intervening twenty-one years. Mardi Gras colors of green, purple, and gold don t include red, but our Mardi Gras Party on February 12 hopes to keep red ink away from our candidates to the AAUW National Convention in New Orleans this June. Our May 25 garage sale also raises funds toward that goal. Thus, use your green in February and May to keep our representatives out of the red in June! And, Happy Valentine s Day! Earline Hefferlin, President AAUW Vision Statement AAUW advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research. AAUW Diversity Statement In principle and in practice, AAUW values and seeks a diverse membership. There shall be no barriers to full participation in this organization on the basis of gender, race, creed, age, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, or class.

3 BOARD BRIEFS As our scheduled meeting date fell on January 1, the Board did not meet in January. Tech Corner: What to do if you re a victim of Ransomware Earline Hefferlin, President, PENTAGON LIFTS BAN ON WOMEN SERVING IN COMBAT Outgoing Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is receiving praise after Thursday s announcement that the Defense Department will lift the ban preventing women from serving in combat roles. This decision is expected to open up more than 200,000 positions to servicewomen, and many of the positions could come with greater opportunities for promotion and higher pay, Panetta has given each branch of the armed services until 2016 to request waivers for any positions it believes should not be opened to women. AAUW opposes all forms of discrimination on the basis of sex and pushes for the equal treatment of women in the military not only in combat but also in the promotion of robust anti-harassment and antiassault policies and access to health care, including contraception and abortion. AAUW Washington Update I f you turn on your computer one morning to find a message telling you that you no longer have access to your PC or any of the files on it, you re not alone. In the past year, hundreds of thousands of people across the world including at least one member of our branch have found themselves victims of the latest Really Nasty Scam, dubbed ransomware. The messages claim to be from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, some 20 other law enforcement agencies across the globe or, most recently, Anonymous, a shadowy group of hackers. The computer users are told that the only way to get their machines back is to pay a steep fine. Essentially, it s online extortion. A user s computer is infected with a virus that locks it. The attackers demand money before the computer will be unlocked, but even when someone is silly enough to pay the money, they rarely unlock it. Victims become infected in many ways. In most cases, people visit compromised Web sites that download the program to their machines without so much as a click. Pornography sites used to be the most popular vehicles, but today thousands of people are getting ransomware through sites hosted by GoDaddy, a popular Web services company. What should you do if your computer is infected? Of course, don t pay anything! Unplug the computer right away and take it to a service technician who can remove the virus. But be warned: this often involves wiping the computer clean of all files, so it s important to have backups. You are backing up your computer, aren t you?

For fun Sunday mornings in January & February: Williams-Sonoma provides complimentary culinary classes (11:00 a.m. at Briarwood) with titles such as Vegetarian Cooking and Flavors of Morocco.

Thanks to all who donated--and wishing all a happy New Year! ATTENTION Calling All Interest Groups Your assistance is needed to make the Mardi Gras fundraiser a success. Would you like to donate an item or service for the Silent Auction? Perhaps your interest group has an idea for something your group might offer. Our Evening Gourmet ladies are busy testing recipes and we look forward to working with other talented AAUW cooking groups to make this dinner memorable. Judy and Kay would also love your help with decorations, entertainment and set-up. Please contact Judy Daltuva or Kay Mahan

5 Digital Resources in Local Libraries At our January meeting, we were fortunate to hear from three local library ladies with different perspectives on the growth of digital resources. Chrissy Postema is the library media specialist at Eberwhite and Abbot elementaries in Ann Arbor. In Chrissy s role, print materials are predominant; she believes that physical books are better for the task of early literacy learning. Chrissy is not anti-digital; however, she notes the equity issue surrounding digital materials: not every student has access to a Kindle, Nook, or even a computer at home. But every child can check out a book (or several) in their school library, bring it home, and read it. At the middle and high school levels, students have more regular access to computers, and with that comes an increase in use of online digital resources. Huron High s media center website, for example, contains links to a vast collection of online subscription-based resources for its students. Deb Briggs Thomas is the Outreach Coordinator at MeL, the Michigan e-library. Deb gave us a tour of the MeL website - - which is federally funded and available to all Michigan residents. Databases are a core resource: you might research something in Academic OneFile, or read CultureGrams to learn about a country and its culture before a trip, or learn about Michigan authors or genealogy. We are fortunate to have these resources available to us - for free - as Michigan residents. Here are a few examples of what else MeL has to offer. MelCat allows patrons to borrow materials from other participating libraries, and has a database of items available from libraries across the state. Michigan Online Resources for Educators - known by its acronym MORE - has curriculum elements aligned to Common Core standards, and is browsable by subject or type. MeL also offers information about Michigan authors, and genealogy. MeL Michigana is an area of the website focused on Michigan history. It has over 50,000 primary resources from all over the state, including civil war diaries, oral histories, and old maps. MeL also has resources for students, like tutorials and sample tests for the ACT, as well as software tutorials and other materials for job seekers. MeL also has book-based programs, including its annual Twenty Notable Books, highlighting Michigan people, places, or e ve nt s. I t s a va ila b le at MeL resources are available directly via the MeL website, and via specific links in your own library s webpages. When MeL purchases core resources for all state residents, it allows individual libraries to use their own resources for items their local population want or need. If you re even slightly curious, please do take some time to investigate MeL s resources. You may be amazed at the quality and quantity. Josie Parker, our third speaker, is the Director of the Ann Arbor District Library (AADL). Josie shared an anecdote about her one-year-old grand-niece, who exhibits the same reaction of joy whether she is engaging with a printed book or an e-book. Without a crystal ball to tell us what the future holds for libraries, Josie points out that the world is awash in books. And at AADL, the book is here to stay; seventy-five percent of the collection is printed materials. She notes, however, that the collection has never been 100% print; music and other non-book materials have always been included. Electronic books, or e-books, are still a changing technology. AADL uses a service called Overdrive to loan e-books. It s a complicated environment, because publishers are redefining the entire publishing model as they struggle to stay in business. Josie explained that publishers see libraries as a threat to the sale of e-books. In fact, six of the largest publishers refuse to sell e-books to libraries. This is the first time in history that books have been for sale to the general public, but are not available to libraries. When a library purchases a paper book, the library owns that book forever, or until it falls apart or gets lost. But with an e-book, a library only purchases a license to rent the book (they don t own it), under specific terms from each publisher. Some publishers charge up to three times as much for an e-book as for a print book, while some publishers will only let a library loan an e-book to patrons 26 times, and then the library has to re-purchase the license again. The publishers are worried that if a patron can borrow an e-book, they won t want to buy one. However, the reverse is actually true about print books: libraries push new materials out to patrons and introduce new authors, leading to increased book sales by publishers. Hopefully, publishers will soon realize that libraries are helpful, and not harmful, to the e-book industry. With regard to books versus technology for young patrons, the library s role is to meet each parent and child where they are at, without judgment. It s up to each parent to decide when to introduce their child to technology, and it s up to the library to equitably represent what s available. And for those with low or no vision, audio book loans are available in a variety of formats via the Washtenaw Library for the Blind and Physically Disabled, administered by AADL. Josie also gave a gentle reminder that our school library media specialists are very important. They are potentially slated for staffing cuts in the upcoming school budget process. She reiterated the value of their role for students, and encouraged us to pay attention and ask questions as the issue comes up in local discussions and decisions. The evening ended with interesting questions from the audience. It s clear than in a changing information environment, books are still important and relevant, even as digital resources become more available.

6 2012 WINTER LUNCHEON The Winter Luncheon was organized by Social Chairs Nancy Harter and Betsy Reitbauer. The luncheon was a great opportunity to raise both awareness and donations for the Legal Advocacy Fund. Jeannette Carr reported the grand total of donations in the green LAF bag was $722.00; $ of which was cash. The donations and contribution forms were sent on to the AAUW Development Office in Washington, D.C. The red scholarship fund bag simultaneously made its way throughout the room as Lynda Collins introduced this year s scholars; collecting a total of $460 to benefit future scholars via the AAUW International II Fund. Some our special guests included Mary Markley scholarship recipient Ariel Shalev, CEW University of Michigan returning student scholarship recipient Susan Buza, and Eastern Michigan University scholarship recipient Linda Loewe. Judy Nagle was in attendance to explain the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Reads program. This national program is based on the premise, One book; many conversations. The discussions that flow from the readings expose readers to a d iver sit y o f o p inio ns a nd perspectives. This year s theme is Understanding Race and runs February 8 through May 27. For information on how you can get i n v o l v e d c o n t a c t J u d y a t The Named Gift Honorees were also introduced (to their surprise) to the membership. Candace Friedman is a hospital epidemiologist who runs a lab at the University of Michigan. She is working on a call system for people to use to check and report on their disease symptoms. In addition to her many other professional duties, she has led our book sale for the past two years as Chair and Co-chair, is our Membership Chair, and is an active Travel Interest Group member.

7 2012 WINTER LUNCHEON The second honoree is long time member Judy Steeh. Judy has served our group as President, as Editor of both the Directory and the state as well as local Ann Arbor Bulletins; and as Book Sale Chair, pricer, and special book locator. She also volunteers at the University of Michigan library, and is currently our Web Master. Both women received a lapel pin, a framed certificate, flowers, and our deepest gratitude. The luncheon concluded as five amazing Honorary Life members shared how AAUW membership has influenced their lives and regaled us with memories including how AAUW has changed within the last 50 year. The experiences these special ladies shared with the 125 members present were illuminating, amusing, and a pleasure to enjoy. Yvette Wernick, Bulletin Editor Due to the persistent and laborious work of the majority of the AAUW membership, we once again have been able to fund scholarships for deserving women. After deductions for overhead, we had $28, and then we added another $3,636 from the monies kept aside to begin the book sale in the following year. The committee which consisted of President Earline Hefferlin, President -Elect Mary Rea, Treasurer Barbara Duncan, Education Funds Chair Lynda Collins, High School Scholarships Chair Martha Petroski, and Chair and Co-Chair of the Book Sale Cheryl Gibbs and Karen Bourdon decided that $10,000 was enough for the start up money for the next book sale. Thus with now $32,523 the decision was made to fund one full semester for the high school scholars. That would mean Scholarship Funding instead of a $ contribution five high school scholars would be fully funded for their first semester of schooling. A committee composed of Martha Petroski, Cheryl Gibbs, and Lynda Collins will review the applications and decide on which five young women from the seven schools will receive the scholarships. The International Fund II will be sent $l3,400 from the book sale monies and $1,000 dollars will be sent to the Eleanor Roosevelt Fund. Additionally, scholarships were funded at Eastern Michigan University for $3,300, at CEW for $5,000 and W.C.C. for $2,400. Additional monies collected in the red bag of $460 at the luncheon will go to the International Fund. Your labors are helping many young women.
