Senior news: Get help with tackling those technology troubles

Technology is constantly changing and, as most of us would agree, much too fast. But the upside is that the technology is becoming more intuitive and responsive. If you have any “techie” questions, you can drop in at the Mid-Columbia Senior Center at 9 a.m. or 1 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month. Or, if you have an iPad or iPhone, I will attempt to answer your questions. I can often help or at least give you some direction before you ask for professional help.

Read across America

DRY HOLLOW Elementary School second grader Chase Wetherell reads to librarian Terrie Woodward, affectionately known as “Mrs. Woody,” on Monday, March 2. Asked why Mrs. Woody was dressed in a Cat in the Hat costume, Wetherell answered, “I know: Dr. Seuss’s birthday and wacky day.” She bought the costume online 20 years ago and has faithfully worn it every year on Dr. Seuss’s birthday, which is celebrated as Read Across America Day. For all these years she’s also faithfully read to students her favorite Dr. Seuss book, “Horton Hatches the Egg.”

Letter to the editor: Gorge future

To the editor: In light of Darren Nichols’ resignation from his post as Executive Director of the Columbia River Gorge Commission, it’s important to recognize that Washington and Oregon can secure a healthy, sustainable future for the Columbia River Gorge as well as other areas in the Pacific Northwest, without having to sacrifice the growth to our vital transportation and trade industries. Environmental responsibility and expanding trade infrastructure can and should coexist.
