March 23, 2018

DETROIT – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Detroit District, announces the Soo Locks in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., will open Sunday, March 25, marking the beginning of the 2018 Great Lakes shipping season.

“Although, we have yet to know which ship will be the first through the locks this year, several ships are scheduled to leave their lay-up ports Friday, so we expect a very busy opening day,” said Kevin Sprague, area engineer, Soo Area Office. “People can check the district Facebook page for first boat photos and updates through the weekend.”

“The Soo Locks are a critical connection in the Great Lakes navigation system and we are dedicated to their reliability,” said Lt. Col. Dennis P. Sugrue, district engineer, Detroit District. “Thanks to our talented team at the Soo Locks. We have completed several critical maintenance projects this winter. We are ready for another great navigation season on the Great Lakes.”

The locks were officially closed on Jan. 15 and underwent critical repairs and maintenance during the 10 week long winter shutdown. Critical repairs and maintenance to the Poe Lock during the shutdown included replacement of gate anchors, miter blocks, quoin blocks, and cylinder seals. Final work on Poe Lock operating system controls was completed. The MacArthur Lock dewatering bulkheads were sandblasted, repaired and painted. Work on the MacArthur Lock included replacement of gate anchors, bevel gears and filling valve seals. The MacArthur Lock work will continue through April.

The Detroit District operates and maintains the Soo Locks along with 94 harbors and connecting channels on lakes Superior, Michigan, Huron, St. Clair and the portion of Lake Erie that borders the state of Michigan. Located on the St. Marys River, Michigan, the locks have been a part of the Corps’ navigation mission since 1881.

NMU’s Britney Reese Receives AAUW Award, March 23

March 23, 2018

Marquette, Mich.– 3/23/2018- Northern Michigan University student Britney Reese recently won the 2018 Martha Griffiths Award from the Marquette Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW). The Rock, Mich., native is a computer science major and mathematics minor. She received $250, a certificate and a recognition dinner.

Reese is a member of the NMU Robotics Club and the NMU student chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery. She developed the entire frontend public web interface for the registration system to the Michigan Mathematics Prize Competition. Reese headed a team of Robotics Club members who built and programmed the new quadruped walking robot for the Northern Evolutionary Robotics Laboratory and led several discussions with grade school children who visited there. She took the lead in deciphering the programming interface of a Timex-Sinclair vintage computer and wrote a working program for the computer for NERL. She also works with the web team at NMU Marketing and Communications.

“All of the nominees were invited to an AAUW meeting and I was able to meet some wonderful people,” said Reese. “The other nominees I met were standout students and the AAUW members were super welcoming. I don’t think about gender too often during my studies, but hearing about what all these women have done, and reflecting on what I’ve accomplished so far, made me feel proud to be a woman earning her degree.”

Reese said that she wants to have a career as a software developer for desktop applications.

Jeffrey Horn, associate professor in the Mathematics and Computer Science department, nominated Reese for the award.

“In addition to her top academic performance in the traditionally male-dominated field of computer science, finishing the major in just three years, Britney has found time and energy to make steady and significant contributions in the role of outreach to the community,” wrote Horn on the candidate nomination form. “It is rare to find someone who masters the technical material of computer science, has the initiative to apply her knowledge to new situations, can assume technical leadership and also be an enthusiastic promoter of the field to the general public.”

Horn shared a story of Reese correctly completing a mathematics homework problem that was accidentally assigned and was beyond the ability of most undergraduate mathematics majors.

The Martha Griffiths Award annually goes to a high-achieving graduating female senior. It is named in honor of Martha Griffiths, who was known for her efforts in the Civil Rights Act and for getting the Equal Rights Amendment to the House of Representatives for a vote in 1970.
