ACC Instructor Dives Into New Adventure

After a very long, competitive application process, Alpena Community College Marine Technology Instructor David Cummins has been selected as a 2016 science communication fellow.

Setting out on his expedition in June, Cummins will sail aboard Exploration Vessel Nautilus.

He is joining the corps of exploration aboard as they explore Central California to the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary.

Seventeen educators and 22 students from around the world were selected from a competitive pool of about 300 applicants by the Ocean Exploration Trust to participate in this expedition and after 3 long days of training in Rhode Island and a little push from his wife, Cummins is ready for his new journey.

"We ended up having Robert Ballard come into our class and we had to present to the guy who found the titanic on what we plan on giving back to our community and then finding out that for 10 days of my mission he will actually be on board and I'll be working with him. It started hitting me how really special this opportunity is and what a great means of bringing back a lot of this to our community," Cummins said.

Cummins will be working with lots of media as well as hosting live tela-presence over the internet during his missions.

He'll be available to answer the publics questions over a live broadcast and plans to bring back new knowledge to our local schools about geology, biology, maritime history STEM education and technological innovation.

Alpena FIRST Robotics Team 5505 Places 63rd at Worlds Competition

Alpena FIRST Robotics Team 5505 wrapped up the last of competition season as they competed in the World Competition last week in St. Louis, Missouri.

Team 5505 has seen a lot of action over the last few months as they have taken home some prestigious awards and placed very high in the last competitions.

Unfortunately, last week did not have the same outcome as they placed 63rd out of 75 teams in their division.

Team 5505 members say their low placing is due to malfunctions with the robot that took place early on in the tournament.

They did not anticipate their robot losing momentum due to so many previous competitions, which inevitably led to a low score.

Although the team did not place as high as they would have liked, they say that they are excited for the many opportunities that can come from this type of experience.

Both team members say that the internal part of the robot is fine, but they are already discussing how to make the exterior part of the robot better for next year.

Alpena Community College Discusses Possible Property Sales, Negotiations

The Alpena Community College Board of Trustees Property Subcommittee met this morning to discuss any property issues the college may face in the future.

The purpose of this meeting was to mainly get Dr. Don MacMaster up to speed on the process that the college uses to entertain any proposals to sell or lease land on the community college's property.

The college has close to 700 acres, and they began to lay the ground work in case someone were to approach them and want to buy some of their property.

The property was part of a legacy donation from Jesse Besser, and it is also an appealing piece of economic development for both the city and the county.

Doctor MacMaster reassures that they have not received any offers regarding the college's property, but says they want to be thoughtful about the future use of the land by maximizing it's potential and opportunities.

62 Year-Old Victim in Single Vehicle Rollover Accident

Deputies from the Alcona County Sheriff's Office assisted Michigan State Police Alpena Post in a single vehicle accident that later resulted in a death.

From a press release from the Alcona County Sheriff's Office, the officers were dispatched to a single rollover accident where the driver had been ejected and trapped under the vehicle on M72 near Grosse Pointe Rd.

The driver, identified as Patrick Fournier, age 62 from Davidson, Michigan, was traveling east on M72 when he lost control of the vehicle and exited the roadway, causing the vehicle to roll over.

Fournier was extricated using the jaws of life by the Barton City, Curran, and the Lincoln Fire Departments.

The victim was stabilized by Alcona EMS personnel and first responders and transported to a landing zone where he was picked up and transferred by life flight to Saginaw St. Mary's Hospital in critical condition.

Fournier later died on May 1 from injuries sustained during the accident.

Alcohol appears to be a factor in this accident.
