I recently wrote a story titled Death of KPLU. While I do not wish to repeat my previous article, I do wish to add some follow-up information by providing you with a couple of links to other related stories.
The following is an excerpt from the book “Lonesome Dove,” by Larry McCurtry, that kinda casts a loop around what the Lakewood City Council will hear Monday night (December 14, 2015) when Chief of Police Mike Zaro reports on the long-awaited roundup of what has been a 21-month study (p.46) by the Public Safety Advisory Committee […]
Our adopted daughter Jennifer Bradley – a Physical Education Director in the local school district – jokingly complained on Facebook yesterday that a certain national restaurant chain discriminated against those, like her, whose name had nothing to do with Christmas and therefore, unlike another of our daughters – Christina Noel (Anderson) Klas (Mrs. Klas, born […]
