Read my story about an elderly man in a nursing home that was the oldest person I'd ever met, we called him God. Because of a stroke the only word he could say was "One". I developed a way to communicate with him that charmed him. We became good friends. This first appeared in "Setting Forth" an online magazine in 2014

This week, the Oregon Legislature wrapped up a historic session that moved Oregon forward on many critical fronts.

In an impressive string of legislative accomplishments, Oregon:
  • Became the first state in the nation with automatic voter registration, known as the new Motor Voter law
  • Enacted universal paid sick time for all workers, becoming the fourth state with such a law
  • Established universal background checks on all gun sales
  • Increased K-12 funding and made universal all-day kindergarten a realitystatewide
  • Reclassified most major birth control as over-the-counter medication and required insurers to cover a full 12-month supply
  • Banned “The Box” on job applications that prevented Oregonians who had served their time from getting back on their feet
Congratulations to the Oregon Legislature and Governor Kate Brown on a remarkable legislative session that will make a real difference in the lives of working families!
