Photo courtesy: SPSCCDavis spent nearly twenty years as a Longshoreman for Pacific Maritime Association and also served as Port Commissioner for the Port of Olympia. It was in that role that Davis found a passion for identifying areas of challenge and opportunities for business and economic growth, specifically related to ports. He joined boards at the Thurston Economic Development Council and the Thurston County Chamber of Commerce to play a part in the region’s growth, which helped him quickly identify the importance of education in a successful region.“It was apparent that in order for a region to be successful there must be a cooperative partnership between business and economic interests and educational preparation in order to develop needed skill sets,” said Davis. He continued, “Community colleges are an essential piece to this equation.”Davis currently sits on the Board of Trustees and acts as Finance Chair for NOVA School and has also served on boards for the Thurston Regional Planning Council and Puget Sound Regional Planning Council. Additionally, Davis is a co-owner of a property management business and advises small business owners on managing, marketing, and growing their companies, and helps coach his children’s sports activities.Blinn, who was appointed to the Board in 2004, leaves a tremendous mark on the college. She served as Chair of the Board of Trustees from 2010 to 2014 and as Vice Chair from 2008 to 2010. Under her leadership, the Board authorized the acquisition of the Lacey Campus property and helped deepen economic development partnerships in northeast Thurston County. Blinn also served as the Board Liaison to the Legislative Committee of the Trustees’ Association of Community and Technical Colleges (TACTC), SPSCC Foundation Board of Directors, Finance Committee, and College Strategic Planning and Campus Master Planning
GUEST ANALYST: Mark Gubicza, a broadcaster for the Angels and a former World Series champion during his 14-year career as a big league pitcher, has been the Southern California News Group’s guest analyst during the World Series.GAME 7 PITCHING MATCHUP: Yu Darvish vs. Lance McCullers: ”With Darvish, I look back at Game 3 and I don’t know if he was tipping his pitches or something with his arm angle. His slider was flat and his fastball command wasn’t good, but it seemed like they had a pretty good idea where he was going. There was a conversation about him tipping before going to the Dodgers. The way they’re reacting (to his pitches), I feel they were seeing something. That’s easily remedied. All you have to do is look at the tapes. … With McCullers, he throws a high percentage of curveballs, but for me, he’s going to have to throw his fastball more. It’s going to be hard to control your emotions in a Game 7, and you can overthrow your curveball, and that can lead to some mistakes and very hittable pitches.”WORTH WATCHING: “You can almost guarantee (Clayton) Kershaw is going to be in the game, and (Dallas) Keuchel too. When you look at Kershaw’s competitiveness, even if he’s not overly strong, that could work to his benefit. He’s not going to try to overpower hitters. He’ll get hitters to swing at pitches out of the strike zone.”X FACTOR: “Being in a couple Game 7’s (with the Kansas City Royals) in 1985, there are always a few guys on the team that keep you under control. George Brett and Hal McRae did it for us. Carlos Beltran, even if he’s not playing for the Astros, will help them relax. On the Dodgers side, there are a lot of guys that are young and energetic. I have seen a lot of emotion from that Dodgers team. If you are looking for one guy to keep them under control, I think Kershaw will be the guy.” Video: Dodgers Game 7 previewRelated Articles WATCH: Joc Jack!
