One Month Until Outdoor Fun at North Coast Harbor's #IceFestCLE
While making plans to attend the MLK Day events at North Coast Harbor, we also learned about their upcoming (Saturday, February 11th) #IceFestCLE 2023. We have enjoyed attending Ice Fest (see our blog posts) many times in the past, and were glad to know of the 2023 date. In the past, the Ice Fest was often combined with MLK Day events at the Great Lakes Science Center and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2023
Monday, September 16, 2023 - A Beautiful Day on Cleveland's North Coast Harbor
Enjoy the energy along the shore at Cleveland's lakefront.
North Coast Harbor is where the city meets the lake in Downtown Cleveland. . . .
The district is home to world-class venues, including the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, the Great Lakes Science Center, and FirstEnergy Stadium - home of the Cleveland Browns. . . . For residents and local businesses, the district represents an escape from everyday life, a place to enjoy summer yoga events, or simply to take a deep breath and relax as the sun sets over the waterfront horizon.
Uniquely situated at the city's front door - this district has a feeling all its own, where the energy of the cityscape meets the tranquil waters of Lake Erie. . . .
Beautiful day in @CityofCleveland to be at @NCoastHarbor on this #MLKDay 2023.— Stuart O. Smith, Jr. - sosAssociates.com (@sos_jr) January 16, 2023

He = Helium
Helium (from Greek: ἥλιος, romanized: helios, lit. 'sun') is a chemical element with the symbol He and atomic number 2. It is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, non-toxic, inert, monatomic gas and the first in the noble gas group in the periodic table.[a] Its boiling and melting point are the lowest among all the elements. It is the second lightest and second most abundant element in the observable universe, after hydrogen. . . .
Because of its low density and incombustibility, helium is the gas of choice to fill airships such as the Goodyear blimp.
Stuart thought it was fun finding the Goodyear Blimp under Helium (He) in the Periodic Table of Elements. The blimp was significant to us, since we have fond memories of seeing it while Stuart was traveling the Buckeye Trail's Little Loop (the 250+ mile loop in northeast Ohio) in 2020. Learn more about the Buckeye Trail's Little Loop, Wingfoot Lake blimp hangar, and Wingfoot Lake State Park in our blog post:

The Lone Sailor
USS Cleveland Legacy Foundation History
On October 8, 2018, Under Secretary of the Navy Thomas B. Modly, on behalf of the Secretary of the Navy, announced the U.S. Navy would commission the fourth ship in U.S. history to be named for the City of Cleveland, Ohio. Since the turn of the 20th century, three previous U.S. Navy ships have carried the name of our fair city, the storied histories of which are detailed in this section. We eagerly look forward to the commissioning and service of yet another warship that will carry the name Cleveland around the globe on behalf of the American people.
. . . USS Cleveland Legacy Foundation has partnered with the U.S. Navy Memorial in Washington, D.C. to sponsor a replica of the Lone Sailor Statue. The statue was dedicated on September 10, 2021, in a ceremony at Great Lakes Science Center, the statue’s temporary location. The Foundation is working with the City of Cleveland and other local nonprofits to move the statue to its permanent location in Voinovich Bicentennial Park, scheduled for summer 2023. The Lone Sailor – Cleveland is only the 18th such statue in the world, . . .
Retirement as Museum
Phase III would begin as the end of the ship’s service life approaches. If the U.S. Navy has no higher or better use for the ship, the USS Cleveland Legacy Foundation would negotiate a purchase with the goal of returning the ship to Cleveland to be docked at the Great Lakes Science Center to become a permanent museum and memorial to all four United States Navy ships that have borne the name Cleveland.
The Great Lakes Science Center is the Lone Sailor Statue's temporary location before it is moved to its permanent home in Voinovich Bicentennial Park as part of the first of three phases planned by the USS Cleveland Legacy Foundation.
We’re looking forward to unveiling our proposal for the Lone Sailor Monument at Voinovich Bicentennial Park. Cleveland’s Lone Sailor is an iconic statue honoring all NE Ohioans who have served or will serve in the @usnavy. @NavyMemorial #cleveland #usscleveland #lcs31 #thisiscle pic.twitter.com/auCGj0fcf9— USS Cleveland Foundation (@USSCLF) June 22, 2022

Dr. Kirsten Ellenbogen began her tenure as third President and CEO of Great Lakes Science Center in 2013 with a strategic initiative developed in collaboration with corporate leaders to change the community’s narrative around advanced manufacturing for diverse middle-school youth and families. This work was recognized by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, who chose the Science Center as the unveiling site for the National Week of Making with Mythbuster’s host Adam Savage in 2016. . . .
Her research focus has included measuring the community impact of science centers and studies at the intersection of rhetoric, science communication, and informal science education. . . . . She is honored to have received the recognition as the 2015 Community Inspiration Award at STEMCON, 2017 Crain’s Women of Note Award, 2019 Crain’s Notable Women in STEM, 2019 Cleveland Magazine Women Living STEM, and the 2021 Cleveland 500 Leaders, Doers, Visionaries, & Idea Generators Who Shape the City.
In 2018, Dr. Ellenbogen was appointed to the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine Standing Committee on Advancing Science Communication Research and Practice, which she co-chairs. . . .
We were glad to be able to talk to Great Lakes Science Center CEO Kirsten M. Ellenbogen while touring the museum. We let her know that the Great Lakes Science Center was the location of one of the last public events to which Stuart took his dad, who passed away on January 6, 2023.
Stuart also wants to mention that on February 28, 2021, Dr. Ellenbogen sent us information via Twitter direct messaging about how to get a qualified family member scheduled for a COVID-19 vaccine. We always appreciated her reaching out with thoughtfulness and caring at that difficult time at the height of the pandemic. She often shares information that our family finds interesting and useful.
In our blog post, see the list of organizations (including the Great Lakes Science Center) that we want to thank for making possible a higher quality of life for Stuart's dad in what turned out to be his last year:

First Amendment at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
The First Amendment (Amendment I) to the United States Constitution prevents the government from making laws that regulate an establishment of religion, or that prohibit the free exercise of religion, or abridge the freedom of speech, the freedom of the press, the freedom of assembly, or the right to petition the government for redress of grievances. It was adopted on December 15, 1791, as one of the ten amendments that constitute the Bill of Rights.
. . .
Although the First Amendment applies only to state actors, there is a common misconception that it prohibits anyone from limiting free speech, including private, non-governmental entities. Moreover, the Supreme Court has determined that protection of speech is not absolute.
The First Amendment to the United States Constitution is important -- we encourage you to stop and think about what is presented in the museum's exhibit about the first amendment.

. . . Experience one of the most iconic moments of the 20th Century by stepping inside The Beatles’ January 1969 rehearsals, studio sessions, and legendary Apple Corps rooftop concert, the band’s final live performance. . . .
ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
This groundbreaking exhibition curated by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is an immersive complement to Peter Jackson's docuseries, “The Beatles: Get Back.”
Fans will experience The Beatles’ creative journey through the exhibit’s original instruments, clothing, and handwritten lyrics used by The Beatles and seen in the film, including items loaned directly by Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and the estates of George Harrison and John Lennon. The exhibit will feature high-definition film clips, audio, and custom projections, transporting fans into The Beatles’ vibrant world of January 1969.
Like Jackson's “Get Back” docuseries, the exhibit shows how The Beatles composed and recorded many of their iconic songs from scratch. The exhibit's three screening rooms feature a selection of footage from each location from the docuseries: Twickenham, Apple Studios, and the Apple Corps rooftop. The footage from the recording sessions and conversations turn the clock back to 1969, showing the intimacy, joyousness, and humor as The Beatles write and record songs for Let It Be and some songs featured on Abbey Road and future solo albums.
Some of the exhibit’s unique items include:
Paul McCartney's black and gray shirt that was worn in the studio and handwritten lyrics for "I've Got A Feeling."
John Lennon's iconic eyeglasses, Wrangler jacket, an Epiphone electric guitar, and handwritten lyrics for "Dig A Pony."
George Harrison's pink pinstripe suit and handwritten lyrics for "I Me Mine."
Fans will also enjoy audio engineer, producer, and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee Glyn Johns' record acetate from the sessions and iconic photography by Linda McCartney and by Ethan Russell, who documented the band’s January 1969 rehearsals, sessions, and rooftop performance, and whose photos are featured in the Let It Be album art.
