Kathy He wins 2015 Congressional Art Competition
Marianas Variety - U.S. Congressman Gregorio Kilili Camacho Sablan says the winner of the 2015 Congressional Art Competition for the Northern Mariana Islands is Kathy He. A team of local artists chose Ms. He’s work from among 43 entries submitted by high school students from Rota, Tinian, and Saipan for the annual competition. Ms. He’s work, entitled “Spring’s Color,” depicts a butterfly poised on a flower. Her multi-media pastel and watercolor will be displayed for a year at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., alongside the winning art from congressional districts around the country. Ms. He, who enjoys drawing from nature, credits both her junior high and high school teachers for the quality and technique of her artwork. “My teachers are very supportive,” Ms. He said. Kathy He is a sophomore at Marianas High School. Her entry in the Congressional Art Competition was one of 19 submitted by her MHS art teacher, Justin McAllister. “We are very fortunate that our North
Work remains on Magnuson reforms
The Natural Resources Committee agreed Thursday to send H.R. 1335 to the full House for a vote. The bill reauthorizes the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, which is widely agreed to have benefited those who harvest fish for business, subsistence, and sport, while at the same time protecting fish stocks for the future. I have been working with the author of H.R. 1335, Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska), to add provisions that would benefit insular area governments and indigenous fishing interests. Although our negotiations had not reached conclusion in time for this week’s committee meeting, Mr. Young told the Committee, “There are some things I can accept,” and he suggested that we continue to work to find areas of agreement before H.R. 1335 goes to the floor. Young, who is beginning his 22nd term, has been a strong supporter of indigenous people and the insular areas throughout his years in Congress. In fact, Young was an original cosponsor in 1996 of the first bi
$310,000 awarded for Connecting Youth to Jobs
Our Public School System and local Chambers of Commerce are receiving a $310,000 grant, announced this week, to help graduating high school students be ready for employment. Connecting Youth to Jobs is a public-private partnership that matches a focused school curriculum with on-the-job training. This motivates students to finish school and ensures that qualified local workers are available to employers to support our expanding tourism industry and improving economy. The grant funds are appropriated by Congress for the Technical Assistant Program of the Department of Interior. TAP is always one of my priority submissions to the House Appropriations Committee for full funding, because the program is flexible enough to respond to innovative proposals like Connecting Youth to Jobs — a model I think can be very effective at helping young people make the transition from school to work. Congratulations to PSS and the Chambers.
Your calls make a difference
A constituent on Saipan called recently to alert me that the Saipan Acceptance Office of the U.S. Passport Agency was no longer taking walk-in passport renewal applications. That is definitely an inconvenience for anyone in the Northern Mariana Islands who needs their passport renewed. After an inquiry by your congressional office, the Saipan Acceptance Office is once again accepting renewal applications in person. But we would not have known there was a problem, unless a constituent brought it to our attention. That constituent deserves a thank you from anyone in need of a new passport. And remember, your Congressional offices are always ready to serve you. Contact us on Saipan at 670-323-2647/8, on Tinian at 670-433-2647, on Rota at 670-532-2647 and in Washington, DC toll free at 1-877-446-3465.
