Oregon’s Cape Lookout is ideal for whale watching

TILLAMOOK — One of the fun parts in having children is discovering the ways they reflect you, not just in eye color or the shape of their nose, but in the ways they interact with the world. My daughter, Lucy, is a tiny ball of lunatic energy. At just a few months, she was rolling around our living room. At 5 months, she’s crawling all over the house, seeking out brave new corners of our dwelling like a miniature Starship Enterprise.

For the Love of Music

Oscar Ortiz, a sophomore at The Dalles High School, still remembers how he felt as a young child hearing the music in videos his dad brought from Mexico. “I was just kind of awestruck. I don’t know how to explain it. It just amazed me, the way everything sounded,” he said. “Ever since, I’ve loved music.” Today, at the ripe old age of 16, Ortiz has amassed a variety of instruments as he pursues his wide-ranging love of music.
