Depending on who you talk to, longtime Portland activist JoAnn Hardesty's installation as president of the Portland NAACP is either a blessing or a nightmare.  This local civil rights icon's assumption to the office was compared by one post to the impact of an incoming artillery shell.  Don Merrill talks with Ms. Hardesty about how she's focused on helping the organization renew its tarnished image by cleaning house, setting new standards and following the first rule of getting yourself out of a hole; stop digging.

There is a jewel buried amongst the businesses and warehouses of SE Portland. Volunteers of America Oregon operates a facility that helps women rise out of addiction into a better life and helps moms improve life for their kids. This is not your parent's VOA. These days, it does a lot more than pick up mattresses and refrigerators. Don Merrill followed the trail of a klatch of women standing in a parking lot to a truly remarkable pair of heroic and life changing programs.
