LEADERSHIP AUTHOR ANTHONY PAUSTIAN TO VISIT BETTENDORF PUBLIC LIBRARY

Saturday, December 8, 2:00 p.m., at the Bettendorf Public Library, Dr. Anthony Paustian, will give a presentation on "Imagination" based on some of the chapters of his recently published book "Beware the Purple People Eaters: A Personal Look at Leadership". This book has received praise from readers as diverse as Dr. David Gallo (co-expedition leader to the RMS Titanic), Mark Collins (two-time Super Bowl champion with the New York Giants), Colonel Michael T. Hauser (United States Army), and Dr. Jason Rhodes (NASA astrophysicist and cosmologist).

According to his website www.adpaustian.com, Paustian has over 20 years experience in successful leadership and strategic marketing in technology, aerospace, education, and healthcare. He has a proven track record in effective collaboration and communication, innovative problem-solving, and successful teaching and mentoring. He holds a Ph.D. in Educational Administration and Psychology from the University of Iowa, an M.B.A. from Loyola University Chicago, and has completed the curriculum for a Masters degree in Design Management from Northern Illinois University and the American Center of Design.

Following a Q&A, books will be available for sale and signing.

  Today is Monday, Sept. 22, the 265th day of 2014. There are 100 days left in the year.

1864 -- 150 years ago: The board of education has granted Thursday as a holiday for the children, with the expectation that parents who desire to have their children attend the Scott County Fair will do so on that day and save irregularity the rest of the week.
1889 -- 125 years ago: The guard fence around the new cement walk at the Harper House has been removed. The blocks are diamond shape, alternating in black and white.
1914 -- 100 years ago: The Rev. R.B. Williams, former pastor of the First Methodist Church, Rock Island, was named superintendent of the Rock Island District.
1939 -- 75 years ago: Abnormally high temperatures and lack of rainfall in Illinois during the past week have speeded maturing of corn and soybean crops.
1964 -- 50 years ago: Installation of a new television system in St. Anthony's Hospital, which includes a closed circuit channel as well as the three regular Quad-Cities channels, has been completed and now is in operation.
1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
