Outstanding Mentors
Named for 2003

Four Lab scientists have been selected as Department of Energy "Outstanding Mentors" for the year 2003. They are Darryl Dickerhoff   (Environmental Energy Technologies), Steve Gourlay (Accelerator and Fusion Research), Deb Hopkins (Engineering), and Gerry McDermott (Physical Biosciences). The group will be honored at a special event tomorrow. According to Laurel Egenberger, with the Lab's Center for Science and Engineering Education, which sponsors the award, the honorees were selected based on how long they have been mentoring, their contribution to DOE and Lab educational goals, attention to safety, and encouraging student professional and academic success.

YCAL Changes Affect
Travel to D.C. Area

As recently reported in "Today at Berkeley Lab," the new YCAL agreement does not include United Airlines service to the Washington D.C. area. America West Airlines was chosen, but this service does not meet the Lab's needs. Consequently the America West YCAL fare will not be used to determine the allowable reimbursement for trips to D.C. The Travel Office has initiated talks directly with United in the hopes of obtaining a separate discount airfare program for Livermore and Berkeley Labs. In the meantime, contact Carlson travel agents (888-243-1125) or the Lab's Travel Office to find low-cost options.


Another Way to Usher
In Summer: Ice Cream

The arrival of summer at Berkeley Lab will be officially celebrated this Friday during the noon hour at the third annual Classic Car Show and Barbecue at the cafeteria. In addition to the hot autos, sunny rock 'n' roll music, and low-cost barbecue lunch fare, there will be ice cream. Thanks to the Administrative Services Department, which is raising money for its staff recognition program, picnickers can get two scoops of ice cream for just $1. NOTE: The cafeteria parking lot will be closed all day for this event. The Site Access Office encourages employees to carpool or use public transportation to get to work tomorrow.


Science Fair Projects
Displayed in Cafeteria

The science projects on display in the cafeteria lobby this week were created by winners of last March's Bay Area Science Fair. Several Lab employees served as judges to select the top ten students. Of those ten, five (ranging from 8th to 12th graders) accepted an invitation to display their projects at the Lab and go on a tour of the facility. Presenters include Michael Zammuto of St. Pius School, Morgan Flannery of St. Phillip Neri School, Sonia Singhal of Carlmont High School, Collin Cronkite-Ratcliff of Menlo Atherton, and Robert Firestone of El Cerrito High School.
