The Maine Flyer, a World War II cargo plane funded entirely through a student-organized war-bond drive in 1945, is getting a lot of attention this year. Not only was a student documentary produced in recognition of the plane's 70th anniversary, but more recently a group of art students at Maine East High School used their talents to memorialize both the aircraft and the endeavors of the students... A 5-foot by 4-foot mosaic depicting the C-54 cargo aircraft was created by 16 members of the school's National Arts Honor Society based on requests from Principal Michael Pressler and Fine Arts Department Chair Ed Eubank, said art teacher and NAHS... The mosaic is expected to be displayed in the hallway near the Park Ridge high school's auditorium, she said. Nine seniors and seven juniors — majority of whom had never worked with mosaics — took part in the project, with several of the juniors returning after the July 4 holiday to complete the piece, according to Eisenberg. "We're just thrilled we were able to contribute to the memory of what students did 70 years ago," she explained. "We all watched the trailer [of the documentary] and we all had a nice discussion about what students did, how heroic and how important it was. For us to, in some small way, contribute to honoring them was personal. I think we all felt it was personal. According to School District 207, students at Maine Township High School, now Maine East, raised more than $500,000 in just two weeks to pay for the assembly of a war cargo plane at the Douglas Plant, where O'Hare Airport is currently located. Construction of the plane was completed in February in 1945 and, in recognition of the students who had funded it, the slogan "Faster and Higher, that's Maine's Flyer" was painted on its side, according to the student documentary. That same slogan is written in small mosaic tiles in the Maine East student piece, which was created largely during lunch and free periods during the month of May before the school year ended, Eisenberg said. The piece began as a drawing traced on a thick, wooden slab. Eisenberg, using a grant she received from the District 207 Education Foundation, bought glass that was cut into tiles and glued to the board before grout was placed between each piece. For nearly everyone, the project was a learning experience. "It was kind of. Source: www.chicagotribune.com
Hoskins, a longtime public servant who previously worked as deputy chief administrative officer for Prince George’s County and deputy mayor for planning and economic development in the District, was named director of Arlington Economic... Hoskins brings more than 25 years of public- and private-sector experience to the office. He faces many challenges, including attracting employers to the county and reversing its sliding commercial vacancy rate. The Washington Post sat down with Hoskins last week to discuss the problems facing this highly educated, affluent suburban county. This is an edited and condensed transcript of the interview. It’s just six months since you got here. how is it going. I’ve actually had a great time. When I first arrived, it was clear to me that part of what had happened over time was the county, in terms of economic development, had not put itself in the path of customers. So we started with Select USA, the largest investor conference the federal government puts on. . . 2,600 people, half of them international, mostly in technology and government services. Shortly after that, we were at South by Southwest, which we had not done ever. We followed that by sending [a staff person] to the largest investor conference to China. We’re working with Virginia Tech to put together a certification program for Chinese executives who will be taught business methods of the United States, focused on clean tech. We’ll augment that program with how to get a business license here, what are the legal issues, how government agencies like Arlington Economic Development can help you if you come here. On the retail side, we’ve been to the International Council of Shopping Centers [in Las Vegas, the biggest retail gathering with 35,000 attendees], which we hadn’t been there in 15 years. I’ve had something like 500 meetings in the past six months. This sounds like great marketing, but has it borne any fruit yet. We’re working with one Chinese company, $100 billion in assets, five lines of business. They’ve identified the Washington, D. C. , area as a potential investment and asked us to connect them with developers who are very good at developing and selling condos. Their last project in China was 45,000 units. They are talking upward of $100 million to invest in this project. Source: www.washingtonpost.com

Wall is five feet long. It was just installed and grouted with epoxy grout. Then I noticed that a few tiles have these black specks in them that really stand out against the white. I am heartbroken, because it really ruins the effect. What should I do?
