Ode to a road: The Foothill miracle miles

Oregon’s land use laws, depending on who is looking at them, are a blessing or a curse.

Dropout changes the world

“It’s really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people don’t know what they want until you show it to them.”

— Steve Jobs, 1955-2011

Welcome home, 3-116

It was like two ships passing in the dark.

Watch out, world

It’s raining. It’s pouring.

First dance

Support group for grievers begins Friday, the headline read. I was instantly swept back to four years ago, Sept. 22, 2007, the day my wife, Tina, died at age 48 of complications of diabetes.

Tearing a hole in the sky

Sept. 11, 2001, dawned bright and sunny, not a cloud in the Minnesota sky.

Second chances

You can tell a lot about a person by how they handle three things: rainy days, traffic lights and pets.

Say it with pizza

You’ve heard of the man cave, that workshop, garage or basement sanctuary where a man goes to think deep thoughts about important issues affecting the future of the world, like beer.

Why dogs donít multitask

What with meteors narrowly missing earth, streams no longer dancing much and sleepy communities like Cove waking up for annual celebrations and then going back to sleep, the dog days of August pant on.

Life is a scream

Very occasionally, life-changing moments involve screaming. They also often involve a take-charge guy who knows what to do in a crisis.


Back in the saddle

Growing old is not for sissies. The twist and shout dance you did in your twenties becomes the ice and Ibuprofen dance in your 30s, 40s and beyond.

Dueling bouquets

Some people ask, why not write about critical world issues. Like the U.S. paying down its $14 bazillion federal debt — and not by giving China the national forests as payment.

Turning the tide

If we keep driving down a dietary highway paved with sugar, fat and salt, one-third of Americans will be diabetic by the year 2030.

Sweet success

“Baseball was, is and always will be to me the best game in the world.”

— Babe Ruth


The buck stops here

It all started with a purple petunia death wish.
