Had a great time chatting with Tim Fellows who has spent the last 5 years as a School Resource Officer for the Camas School District. He sees first hand how wonderful our students and staff are in our district, and also where we need to be involved and aware to help our students that are struggling. Please tune in and hear about Tim’s time with the schools and his advice for us as parents. Please like and share the good news to our community! xo
Sheryl and her husband lost their son in August of 2016 to suicide. While processing through their grief, they started a movement called Our City Cares. You may have noticed the signs of hope posted around our community. Don’t Give Up. You Are Not Alone. Your Life Matters. Your Mistakes Don’t Define You. There is Hope. Comparison is the thief of Joy. There are also handouts with crisis hotline information and support locations at the schools for students in need. Please listen to Sheryl’s story and think how YOU can be an ambassador of hope in our community for someone struggling. We are all connected. Thank you.
My co-anchor Brooksley and I sat down with some pretty great 1st graders at Helen Baller to talk about Earth Day, what they love about the Earth and some ideas about how to make it better! Listening to these kids will lift your spirit and hopefully inspire you to take part in keeping our Earth fabulous. Earth Day is April 22nd this year. What will you do on that day and everyday to make this Earth better?
I’ve heard about this teacher for years and decided it was time to feature this great guy in our community that teaches science and track at Skyridge Middle School. Tune in and listen to my interview with Mr. Condon and hear about his time teaching and about how he cares about the kids he teaches. Very inspirational. It’s teachers like this that make a difference. Thank you for all you do Mr. Condon. Have a great summer everyone!

Last week I had to wonderful opportunity to attend the 5th grade luncheon at Prune Hill Elementary. These students got to attend a Portland Youth Philharmonic concert and then come back to their school for a formal, white linen luncheon put on by the PTA and served by their parents. Weeks leading up to this luncheon these kids went over manners, etiquette and behavior in formal dining situations. What a great gift to give these young people to go out in the world with. Hoping to inspire other elementary schools to do the same. Check it out!
As I drive around town I have seen this lovely woman on her bike riding all around in all kinds of weather.

Tune is as she shares about her love for her bike and why she rides!
