HELP THEM WIN A SMALL BUSINESS GRANT & KEEP PARK PLACE COFFEE IN BUSINESS!

A plea from Park Place Coffee's owner:

"I'd like to ask for your help in helping me win a business grant for the cafe. As you may know, I'm looking at closing at the end of the lease unless something changes monetarily. THIS COULD BE IT! I've applied for a business grant, and the winner will be partially determined by the number of votes my submittal receives. Anywhere from $10-25,000. There are so many more things Park Place Coffee can do for the community if I could get this business grant."

How you can help

"When you click on the link above, it will take you to the contest page and my submittal."

"At the bottom it will ask if you find the story INSPIRATIONAL/USEFUL. When you choose one, it will ask you to register by setting up an identity. (It is their way of making sure all votes are valid. This contest is through INTUIT - the makers of Quickbooks and TurboTax - not a fly-by-night.). I know sometimes people are wary of registering, but the process doesn't require much information and it could make a HUGE DIFFERENCE!"

"PLEASE take the time to vote and possibly keep Park Place Coffee in the Rockwood community -- and please ask everyone you know to vote too! I suggest you vote for the CATEGORY: Inspirational and Useful."

More troubles for Reynolds.  State ethics board will investigate two former, one current Reynolds School District employees

Medical bills draw scrutiny.

Complaints filed against a current and two former school district administrators

Source: The Oregonian: Saturday, March 14, 2009

The state ethics commission will investigate one current and two former Reynolds School District employees for allegedly using district money to pay for unnecessary medical procedures that included cosmetic surgery and Viagra prescriptions.

The commission is responding to complaints filed by Reynolds Superintendent Robert Fisher against former Superintendent Terry Kneisler, former Human Resources Director Wayne Travillion and current Salish Ponds Elementary Principal Ed Smith.

A factor in the budget crisis?

The complaints allege that Kneisler's bills, totaling $15,000, included massages, cosmetic dental work, Viagra prescriptions and laser eye surgery for himself and his daughter.

181st Corridor Signal Improvements Coming Spring 2009

181st Corridor Signal Improvements: Spring 2009.

181st Corridor Signal Improvements Coming Spring 2009

Smart signals, wider turns to relieve traffic congestion

The 181st Avenue Corridor project is intended to increase existing street capacity and support new industrial businesses within the Urban Renewal Area, and is supported by the Wilkes East Neighborhood and the Rockwood Business Coalition.

Reason for the project

181st Avenue provides the only connection to Interstate-84 within Gresham city limits. As the areas to the south develop, including Pleasant Valley and Damascus, this corridor will grow more congested because it provides the nearest freeway access. The redevelopment potential of the Wilkes East and North Gresham neighborhoods, including the industrial portion of the Rockwood-West Gresham Urban Renewal Area, will be hampered (without improvement) as intersections on 181st near the freeway reach capacity.

Smart signals, wider turns, and a crosswalk closure are expected to relieve traffic congestion through this busy area.
