Hatfield: The Gentleman Who Changed My Life

For the past five years Senator Mark Hatfield has been a huge part of my life and I only met the man as a reporter twice. We never had a deep conversation. We never talked about life or how to live or how to treat people. But still this man has changed my life. I’ve…

As The Election Nears; DVR is a Gift from God

As the November Election nears and airwaves fill with accusations and slander, how do we stay involved with the process without getting stung? I find DVR is a gift from God.

I got a radio for my office. I liked it at first but now all I hear is “Playground Politics” polluting the airwaves. “Playground Politics” are when candidates act like children teasing and taunting one another on the playground.
