RIP Adam Yauch

Happy Friday Blog Readers!   I hope you are all ready for Cinco De Mayo tomorrow! The weather here in Portland is supposed to clear up this weekend, so be careful if you go out on your bicycles.

Holiday Season Good News

Happy Holidays Blog Readers! Here is some Holiday Season good news: The EPA is preparing to release new mercury and air toxins standards, and it appears as though the industry is prepared to meet them.  Team work, yay!

                  Hey Gang!                 I hope you all had an excellent 4th of July!  I survived it.  We enjoyed moving the Blues Fest musicians around for our 5th straight year.  Our next festival is Pickathon (, and we’re gearing up for that in August.
