More community award stories

In total I have written eight stories for the Stayton Mail about the community award winners.

All great people and I had a blast doing these before leaving for vacation.

Dinah Potter: Woman of the Year

RayHeuberger: Sublimity First Citizen

Stayton Community Awards

I have been working on a number of artilces, eight to be exact, for the Stayton Mail based on the community awards they have. Each person gets selected by a group of community members and then the recipients are honored at a banquet April 26.

So I have three weeks to get profiles done on the eight folks. The scheduling is the hardest part of the stories.

Here is the first one on Santiam Vision Source.

This week I have four more stories in the works, so I should be updating on a weekly basis for a bit.

For the Statesman Journal's Senior Life section I wrote a story near Valentine's Day about this couple who had been together, well, forever.

Their anniversary is this month, so the SJ re-ran the story in the Life section. Hey, I got a byline so it's all good.

Now I just need a copy of the March 30 SJ.
