At city hall this evening, Thursday, March 3 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM 1900 SW 4th Avenue in room 7 A, you will meet people from this site, http://restorethevista.com Their main concern tonight is that they are trying to fight height restrictions for buildings being built that will block views of Mt. Hood from the Vista Bridge. They also are concerned about bolts in the concrete of the Vista Bridge. It is an opportunity to meet them and hear what they have to say.
Because more teens tend to text than phone, Lines for Life has created a way for teens to text if they are in distress. Here is the story. Thanks to Lines for Life and KGW News.
Ken and I believe that the safety of others is number one. We are so thankful that the current fence is in place and appreciate Commissioner Steve Novick’s efforts. We support replacing the current fence with one that is equally efficient and architecturally appropriate. We are willing to work with whomever we need to work to make this happen.
My dear friends.
How was your year?
Mine was very trying.
But I came out of it smelling the sweet air!
I hope you did too.
I do get concerned, though,
how you will be doing over the holidays.
So here’s what I want you to do.
Follow your heart.
I am beautiful
I am intelligent
I am healthy in mind and body
When you get depressed
Keep repeating this until you feel better
or fall asleep.
And let’s have a great 2015!
I love you!

Having a rough day? Place your hand over your heart. Feel that? That’s called purpose. You’re alive for a reason. Don’t give up.
