Louis Green retired in December 2012 after 17 years as the counsel for El Dorado County in northern California. Louis was the longest-serving counsel in the history of the county, home to nearly 200,000 residents. He told the Mountain Democrat in Placerville that he plans to “take some time to decompress” before jumping into a second career or an avocation. A Stanford Law alumnus, Louis worked in private practice for a short time before dedicating himself to public service in California. He worked in the city attorney’s office in Sunnyvale for nine years, served as assistant city attorney in Palo Alto, and spent a year as city attorney in Davis before his El Dorado County appointment, during which he was responsible for 10 attorneys and five support staff. Ada Demb is now an emerita faculty member at the Ohio State University’s College of Education and Human Ecology. Her new book, “Daring the Doctorate: The Journey at Mid-Career,” was released in December 2012. The book is the first major work addressing the life circumstances of the growing number of midcareer doctoral students. On the basis of the experiences of 15 successful graduates, Ada develops perspectives and frameworks to assist those contemplating doctoral study.
