 From the Alliance News Headlines, Sept 19, 2008:

One week after Hurricane Ike ravaged the Texas and Louisiana coastlines, Alliance first responders have visited several C&MA churches. Southwestern District superintendent Mark Searing commissioned Chaplain Paul Northcutt, who is a full-time police chaplain and the district’s emergency response “go-to guy,” and his wife, Blossom, into hurricane affected areas with Alliance churches.

From the Times of Trenton (NJ) of September 13, 2008, by Chris Sturgis

HIGHTSTOWN — The former Minute Maid property has been rezoned to highway-commercial despite a request from the site’s owner that it stay zoned for industrial uses to keep more development options open.

There were no votes against the rezoning in Monday’s action, but planning board member Bill Searing abstained and members Warren Olsen and Fred Monferrat were absent.

September Finds

The Aspen Times Weekly,  9/6/2008, in a long (and good) article by Katie Redding, Minding the Gap, the opening sentences contain a teacher Searing:

ASPEN — In Dee Searing’s writing class at Aspen Elementary School, nobody has to sit in their seats. And students never have to write about what they did on their summer vacation.  (emphasis added)

Instead, they’re allowed to write about cartoons and adventures, to draw pictures before they write, and to lie on a bright pastel rug if it helps them come up with better words.   (Google for the rest of the article)

Dee Searing is also mentioned as the ‘elementary school’s writing specialist’ in an other piece by Ms Redding on Sept 18, 2008

Searings in the News – July

Tribby putts way to county title

The high-pressure scene on display at the Gainesville Country Club was everything a golf aficionado would expect on a Sunday afternoon final.

No, there wasn’t a green jacket on the line, or anyone donning a red polo shirt. Nevertheless, the intensity that filled the air as Matt Tribby approached the 18th hole was palpable. If he sinks the putt on the par-5, he walks away with his first Alachua County Amateur title. If he misses, then Brian Searing, whom he had dueled with all afternoon, would have a chance to send the tournament into a playoff.

With just one flick of his wrists, and a wall of onlookers rooting for him, he calmly sank the putt and earned a title.

Defending champ on top after first round

Published: Saturday, July 26, 2008 at 6:01 a.m.
Last Modified: Friday, July 25, 2008 at 11:58 p.m.

It’s safe to say that Brian Searing is a front-runner. As the defending champion of the Alachua County Amateur Golf Championship, the target is squarely on his back, but apparently that’s just the way he likes it.

“This morning when I woke up I said to myself I can do this,” Searing said. “Knowing that I won this tournament before gives me a lot of confidence that I can do it again.”

Searing is attempting to become just the third three-time winner of the tournament. Ironically, the most recent, Bryan Harrell, is playing in the same group as him. The 19-year-old shot a 4-under 68 to take a one stroke lead over Matt Tribby at the Turkey Creek Golf and Country Club. The tournament continues today at the University of Florida and Sunday at the Gainesville Country Club.

The Alachua County Amateur Golf Championship will be different for Brian Searing this year.

The 19-year-old Santa Fe High School graduate will be the one with the target on his back for the first time.

LA PORTE – Unfavorable road conditions around the city of La Porte could be having an effect on how much the local consumer pays at the pump.

Some secondary and residential roads around the city are not only in need of a facelift, they could impact how much gas mileage a driver can get out of their vehicle. Even though the direct effect may be small, Jay Searing says awful roads can ultimately lead to a bad automobile.

“The problem is not so much the fuel economy, but it’s the hazard to the vehicle itself,” said Searing, manager of Stan’s Service in La Porte. “With any bad road conditions, there can be damage to struts, bearings and other important vehicle parts.”

Searing said when struts, bearings and wheel alignments become damaged, the efficiency of any automobile’s engine decreases significantly.

“Once the bearings start going bad, it takes more energy to get your vehicle to move,” he said. “If tires aren’t properly aligned, that’ll affect the mileage.”

Searing believes La Porte roads are in dreadful shape.

“I ride a motorcycle. There are very few roads you can use as thoroughfares,” Searing said. “The secondary streets are deplorable.”

Mercury News sports columnist Mark Purdy, left, and fellow riders…

It was all going so well. Too well, now that I look back on it.

We were riding along gloriously on the Tour de French Fry 2008. Early Saturday afternoon, nine intrepid cyclists shoved off from my driveway. We looked sharp. We pedaled with resolve. Our motorcycle escort had a boombox blaring the “Rocky” theme. Nothing could slow us down.

(The article goes on to explain the ‘Tour’ and how this year it was changed to raise money to buy helmets for kids who can’t afford them..in memory of a 12 yr old rider who was killed…one of the riders who donated money to participate was……Stan Searing..see below…Dan)

Stan Searing, an engineer who twice a week commutes by bike from Willow Glen to Mountain View and rides on Park Avenue past my corner, where Breanna was hit. Stan also has long hair that blows in the wind as he rides. Every Tour needs a sex symbol. Stan was ours.
