The Stager is a classic and funny portrait of fragile modern day egos, who are unsatisfied, know-it-alls - be they adults, 10 years old, or a rabbit!

Our guest this morning is Julie Coll from the King Harbor Boating Foundation.
A founder of the King Harbor Boating Foundation, Julie Coll, is currently Chairman of its Board of Directors, in addition to being an active member at King Harbor Yacht Club. As an avid and active participant in sailboat racing with a true passion for the sea, her interest in boating began as a teenager when she raced with her dad. Her love for sail boat racing wasn’t revived until 2006 after she finished raising her two daughters. It was then she became heavily involved with boats and racing, bringing her passion to life when she co-founded the King Harbor Sea Fair, a popular family excursion now in its eighth year. Over the years, Julie has served on the board of directors for the King Harbor Youth Foundation and the King Harbor Yacht Club. She has held many leadership positions within King Harbor Yacht Club and last year founded the Women’s Race Fleet. Due to her deep love and respect for the ocean, Julie champions and mentors new boaters and encourages safe boating practices and marine conservation. For the past 11 years, boating and the sea have been a great inspiration for her creative nature. As a glass artist, she has created magnificent glass art for which she has won many commissions.
Sea Fair is a free, family friendly event offering a unique opportunity to prepare for the summer boating season along with several fun and educational activities and this morning and Julie is going to tell us what we can expect at the event which takes place on Sunday, May 17 from 11 to 6 p.m.

Whether you are a student or parent, the college admission’s process can be stressful and mystifying. How do you choose a school that is the best fit for you? What about finances? What’s the average number of schools a student typically applies to? Should equal valence be given to academics and social/cultural environments? When is the best time for students to begin to look at colleges? How important is an on-site visit to schools?
Is requesting an interview the best way to go even if it's not a requirement for admissions?
In short, what are the most important things to consider when applying to colleges?
Our guest today is Sheryl Santiago, independent educational consultant and owner of Coll-Edge Partners, LLC. Ms. Santiago is a member of the Higher Education Consultants Association.
Her business philosophy is based on the belief that there is no reason to focus on one dream school or think that getting into a particular college will determine a students' success in life. In fact, the "Best College" is the one that is the best fit for your individual student, and the good news is that students generally have many choices. A successful search is not about name or prestige- it's about where your student will have the best opportunity to thrive.
Sheryl Santiago works with students to determine a good mix of 8-10 schools, help them through the visit, interview, essay and application process and in many cases, after acceptance, can help parents appeal for more gifts, grants and scholarship monies. She knows that not every school is right or affordable for every student, so she takes a realistic approach with each family.
As Berger's novel moves back and forth from Vilna to Brooklyn, the focus is on Rosha and Mira as well as on Charlie's sister Jeanette. All three attempt to make sense of a life that often makes no sense at all. VERDICT: In this engaging debut, a semifinalist for Amazon's annual Breakthrough Novel Award, readers gain three different views of the effects of World War II on ordinary people.

Despite the title, bitterness is the dark driving force in this stirring debut novel of Holocaust survivor guilt-guilt about being safe. Told with candor and tenderness, there are two parallel stories of Jewish girls-one a teen, one an eight year old- from the same family but worlds apart during WWII.
Hazel Rochman, Booklist
A Jewish girl in Eastern Europe and her teenage American cousin experience the Holocaust years in vastly different ways in this bittersweet novel.... A tender look at immigrants in America and Nazi victims in Europe succeeds in educating and engaging readers.
From She Writes Press, September 23, 2014. Available from all major booksellers, bookstores and online.
