Hey ASU! I'm alumni (Class of 2004). Today is the 82nd anniversary of Orson Welles brilliant "War of the Worlds" radio broadcast that terrified the world. Seventeen years ago today (Oct. 30th, 2003), I presented the broadcast in its entirety on KASF. Before the broadcast, I led a panel discussion about the history, impact, and relevance of this historic prank, and I have both the broadcast, and our discussion here for all to experience. As a lifelong fan of this broadcast, presenting it on-air this way was something I always wanted to do. I hope you enjoy this...

Adams State University snares Next50 - Adams State University

A great new program at Adams State University: To support life-long learning and personal development among older San Luis Valley residents, Adams State is launching the new “Creating the Next Chapter for Your Next Fifty” program in January. The new, one-year pilot program is funded with a $129,959 grant from NextFifty Initiative, a private Colorado-based foundation that supports projects benefitting people age 50 and older. Read more about this exciting new program: “The intent of these offerings is to improve health, well-being and quality of life to adults in this age group.”

Make it a special week. #ThisIsAdamsState

NEWS BULLETIN: Adams State University received a major boost when Moody’s Investors Service revised the University’s financial outlook to stable from negative in its most recent credit rating released this week. “The revision of Adams State University’s (A3 stable) outlook to stable reflects the university's improved operating performance, growth in liquid reserves, and governance stability,” Moody’s reported. “The operating cash flow margin in fiscal 2019 was a strong 21%, driven by an accumulation of expense reductions over multiple years and increased state support boosting revenue during the fiscal year. “Spendable cash and investments, as well as monthly liquidity, improved through retained cash flow, providing additional operating flexibility in a time of uncertainty. Governance stability and enhanced fiscal oversight has improved the university's strategic positioning and is a key ESG driver of the outlook revision.” Adams State earned the only upgraded rating of all the schools Moody’s reviewed. The enhanced rating underscores Adams State’s committed strategy to managing costs in an environment of changing revenue forecasts. Full report:

#WildlifeWednesday – Even wild animals can ‘reduce, reuse, and recycle’!
Using trail cameras, Dr. Tim Armstrong, Professor of Biology at Adams State University, has been conducting wildlife research in abandoned, historic mines in remote areas of Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve. A number of photos this year confirm the use of one old mine by a family of black bears! In this photo, two bear cubs walk across a pile of rock debris in front of the entrance. Their mother’s shadow is visible at left. Other mammals have also been documented using these mines.

Many wildlife species have the ability to adapt and take advantage of what might be considered a ‘ruined’ part of nature, finding shelter and making a home. What unexpected things have you been able to reuse for a new purpose?
