Both presentations will be in room E354 (lecture lab). The first presentation starts at noon and the somewhat longer evening presentation at 7 p.m.

Payne has made three trips to Cuba, accompanied twice by his son Sayer in 1997 and in 2005. Cameras in hand, they traveled on foot, by taxi and in rented cars around the island but spent most of their time in Havana, staying with Cuban families.

Payne will cover the turbulent history of this nation, U.S. involvement in Cuban affairs, the nature of Cuba's unique brand of socialism and the culture that sprang from it.

The presentations are free and seats are limited; early arrival is suggested for seating.

Tuesday, Sept. 11

Terry Wiley, diabetes patient and member of a patient-led A1C champions program, will share his story with the public and St. Joseph's Area Health Services diabetes support group at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11 in St. Joseph's and Essentia Health's lower level conference room A.

His training and expertise help others learn how to take control of diabetes.

"I have diabetes and I understand the challenges you face," Wiley encourages others. "You are not alone on your journey with diabetes."

Wiley knows the obstacles of maintaining control of diabetes and will speak on topics including insulin misperceptions and control, glucose levels, self-manage- ment, developing a balanced and healthy lifestyle, prioritizing diabetes management, overcoming fears and finding resources.

For more information, contact Tia Kocka at 255-3684 or tiakocka@catholic health.net.

Thursday, Sept. 13

"Of Vikings and Voyageurs," a free Legacy presentation by author Jack Salmela, will engage an audience at 11 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 13 at the Park Rapids Area Library.

The power point presentation with a costumed interpreter and artifacts will bring this part of Minnesota history to life.

    During his research, Salmela learned the Cistercian monks and Templars in Gotland, Sweden were very advanced by the 14th Century. These are the people who had been to North America long before Columbus.

He learned Grand Portage was the gateway to the west long before St. Louis was considered to be. Grand Portage was a commercial gateway that benefited both the Europeans (furs) and the Native Americans (wool blankets, pots, pans, and other metal goods).

The St. Louis gateway, on the other hand, was the "death knell" for Native Americans as it brought white settlement to Indian lands.   And he contends fur traders don't get the historical credit they deserve; Sir Alexander McKenzie made it to the Pacific Ocean 12 years before Lewis and Clark.

This presentation will take participants into the world many as yet know little about.

The Voyageur interpreter will bring a bit of this history to life with an actual musket, furs and more. The voyageurs carried a lot of furs along the waterways of the north. At least at one point, they carried real treasure...and lost it. The rumor of treasure came down to the present, sparking a search that attracted both treasure hunters and historians alike. The key lay in rune stones left by Vikings centuries before the Voyageurs paddled their canoes on the wilderness lakes and rivers.

Saturday, Sept. 22

Wiley knows the obstacles of maintaining control of diabetes and will speak on topics including insulin misperceptions and control, glucose levels, self-management, developing a balanced and healthy lifestyle, prioritizing diabetes management, overcoming fears and finding resources.

The Centers for Disease Control estimate that more than 26 million Americans have diabetes and seven million are unaware that they have the disease.

The American Diabetes Association generally recommends that diabetics should strive for an A1C (test to assess blood glucose levels over a two- to three-month period) that is less than seven percent.
