Listen at 8:48am for Robin and Sueann

One of the joys of the Morning Edition show is that I have a chance to chat with Robin Rilette about Classical music! Her show starts at 9am and so a little before, we discuss what she has prepared for us. It's a highlight of my mornings!

Good Morning

If you subscribe to Northwest Public Radio's E-newsletter, Connect, you would have known that Gillian Coldsnow is now our Assistant Operations and Programming Guru. Which means, she will not be on the air to greet you in the mornings. Instead, I will attempt to fill in as Morning Edition host. I am very thankful to Gillian, Robin and Kerry for their mentoring. We have a wonderful and supportive staff here at Northwest Public Radio!

I am looking forward to the new challenges and schedule!

I am also looking forward to a local series we are working on. In the next couple of weeks we will start a coversation about water on Morning Edition. Some of the issues we want to talk about include Columbia River Basin Irrigation, and conservation of water.

Do you have any stories or questions about water usage in the Northwest? Have you ever thought about the water as a limited resource?

I Voted

Actually, I voted early at the courthouse. I was wearing a knit cap, fleece and using a knock-off Gucci bag; It was a gift I swear!

I started to over heat in my little voting cubby. Here I am, voting in a historic election! I read the directions slowly to make sure I didn't make a mistake.

Then I planted that "I Voted" sticker on my fleece and felt fantastic!


A black man as president or a white woman as vice president.

Our country moves quickly. The Civil Rights Act was signed in 1968. The Equal Rights Amendment passed in 1972.

Ladies and Gentleman, we may have complaints about our politics. We may focus on what is wrong with our country, but today, well...we've come a long way baby!
