Cannon Beach 2014

  Francisco and I enjoyed Cannon Beach so much and we wanted to try a restaurant we walked by on Sunday that marketed their gluten-free and dairy-free options.  Francisco has also been dying to take photos of the sunset at Cannon Beach and of Haystack Rock. So, we decided yesterday we would go back and enjoy dinner before taking some pictures and beachcombing. Last night, Monday, August 25, we drove the...

Seaside Food Crawl 2014

Our family has a different kind of tradition when we come to Seaside.  This started on our trip two years ago, and we couldn’t wait to continue it again this year with my to-be Stepmother and Step Brothers. Rather than going on pub crawl, we go on a food crawl. This year’s food crawl was on Sunday, August 24, 2014.  After spending some time together browsing the shops at Cannon Beach, we drove back to...

You can...

A client I first met during graduate school and who I still work with, more than five years later, is Community Action Center in Whitman County.  Not only did CAC become my client through WSU and now with our radio stations, but I also am a client of CAC through their Self-Help Homes program. With Self-Help Homes, first-time home buyers can purchase a brand new home without a downpayment.  All...

Conversation with Cathy public meeting 8-20

Below is information copied from an email newsletter I received from the Lewis-Clark Valley Chamber of Commerce.  As someone who has always been interested in politics, I am hoping to be able to attend this event tomorrow afternoon. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) will host a ‘Conversation with Cathy’ public meeting in Clarkston, Washington on Wednesday, August 20th. The Congresswoman looks forward to hearing from the community so she can...
