Some years ago, Pam Regentin and I were the last two bakers standing in Shortt Supply’s first pie-baking contest. We stood side by side, chatting nervously as the judges made their decision for first place. We talked about our kids and baking. We didn’t talk about the $1,000 first prize, but I’m sure we were both already thinking about how we’d spend it.

It is May; Mother’s Day month. Many of you know that I have two wonderful children and one super wonderful grandson. But in thinking about mother’s day this year, I have to focus on a recent conversation I had with my son, Aaron.
Good as it is to see challengers in any local election, when it comes to Hood River County School Board, Jan Veldhuisen Virk and Mark Johnson richly deserve to return to their posts.
