June 7 – June 28: 1:00 - 2:15 p.m. COURSE by Jerry Graham “ON THE OTHER HAND..."
This course will consider the 21 presidents of the modern era (Teddy Roosevelt to Joe Biden) and first try to determine the single most significant, long lasting, positive contribution his administration made for this nation. What was the most important legacy of his presidency? Following that analysis, “On the Other Hand”, What was this president’s most significant failure? What future problems did his policies create? On balance did his accomplishment overshadow his failure? Join us as we look at “Both Hands” of our presidents of the 20th and 21st century!
June 7 – June 28: 2:30 - 3:30 p.m. LECTURES by Ted Smith
June 7: "FREE WILL AND THE GARDEN OF EDEN"
A review of Free Will; what we think it is versus what it really is. Did Adam and Eve steal it from God, creating the original sin? Were they ticked by the serpent? Or did God give it to humanity willingly?
June 14: "ORIGINS OF THE CELTIC PEOPLE"
We tend to think of St. Patrick, converting the Celts to Christianity. While true, recent archeological evidence suggests that towards the end of a Celtic Empire it dominated much of Northern Europe even before Ancient Rome rose to power. Join us for a grand tour of prehistoric Europe.
June 21: "HOW THE IRISH CONVINCED BENJAMIN FRANKLIN TO START A REVOLUTION"
At first Franklin fancied himself a loyal Colonist to the Crown; many of his neighbors felt the same way. As tensions grew, Franklin went to England seeking a diplomatic solution. He knew war against the world’s most powerful navy was a fool’s errand. While in England for over 10 years, a chance visit to Ireland changed Franklin’s mind about war with the British. Join us as we find out how they did it.
June 28: “AMERICAN REVOLUTION AND THE ROLE OF SALT”
General Washington had a salt supply for food preservation and medicine at the time of the Revolution and the British wanted it. Meanwhile, Yankee entrepreneurs in New England saw a golden opportunity for salt production and earning a living in the battle for independence. Find out how salt played a role in Americans winning their independence.
