My quote for the week is about an American icon during World War II. “Naomi Parker aka Rosie the Riveter passed away Jan. 20, 2018, at the age of 96. Rosie the Riveter inspired so many young women with her iconic poster,“We can do it”, and her positive attitude. She is a cultural icon of World War II representing the women who worked in factories and shipyards during WWII while the men were fighting for America; many of these women produced munitions and war supplies.” Go to google to learn more about Rosie the Riveter/Naomi Parker.February 21, 2018 6 a.m. read more..
This past week I stayed up way too late watching the PyeongChang Winter Olympics. Our American athletes, brown, black, white, gay, straight, rich, poor, immigrants or native born have skated, skied, jumped, flown, flipped and spun their hearts out on the world stage. Great to see the grace and style of our athletes and their respect for their teammates and competitors. It’s about so much more than sports and watching them makes me proud to be an American.February 21, 2018 6 a.m. read more..

With the exception of Good Friday and Holy Saturday (the two days before Easter Sunday), the bells of St. Gertrude’s ring out over the Camas Prairie every day of the year, as they have since the early 20th Century. While the chapel is on the National Register of Historic Places, the sound of the bells proves that this sacred building is still in use for the purpose it was intended when it was dedicated in 1924.February 21, 2018 6 a.m. read more..
