Best wishes on Indigenous People's Day. Well, that's one name for it. The US Federal government still recognizes it as Columbus Day, as does Google's Holiday calendar, and the State of Oregon ignores the whole question.
KBOO Community Radio is excited to welcome Victoria Stoppiello to serve once again as our interim station manager. Ms. Stoppiello has twice served KBOO as a station manager, served on the board, and participated in the construction of the KBOO studios. Ms. Stoppiello's managerial expertise and previous experience with KBOO make her a positive addition to our KBOO community. Please join us in extending Ms. Stoppiello a warm welcome!
Last week, Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber called for a special legislative session (to begin 8am September 30th) noting that "we have an opportunity to combine cost savings from reforms to the Public Employee Retirement System (PERS) and new revenue to restore lost school days." In other words, maybe we can remedy some of the draconian cuts made to education in recent years by slashing the pensions of retired teachers and other public workers. Or in other words, let's pit old people against children.
