Labozetta, Bob (Labozetta)

Bob Labozetta ’69, MA ’75 writes: "After 33+ years teaching at the secondary and lately the community college level, I have retired my chalk and white board pens, closed my grading software, and boxed my PowerPoint presentations and lessons. The last six years my wife, Susan, and I resided in Oregon, and last summer decided to chuck it all and travel full-time. We sold our home and most of our possessions, bought a motorhome, and now see the USA (but not in a Chevrolet). While Susan continues her art (sculpture), I may put my SCU education to work by writing who-knows-what. Figuring out how to brew beer on the road, fishing across this great land, and viewing historical sites that I discussed in the classroom but never took the opportunity to visit are prominent objectives as well."

Maurins, Arnie

Arnie Maurins ’77 was recently interviewed by NewsReview.com about the role of the library in a high-tech world. Maurins became director of the Washoe County Library System in 2008. He said, "There’s some limitations on what we can do as far as what the county does with technology. They’re generally one or two releases behind the latest software and that kind of thing, but I think within those limitations … we’re doing pretty well. Staff is starting to use mobile devices like tablets out in the stacks, helping people. And we’re going to start lending out those kinds of things to the public for them to use and maybe having a bar setup in the library where they can use those kinds of things and try out the latest stuff."
