If you have some opinions or even great ideas about how our local schools could be improved, you may want to throw your hat into the ring to become part of the Bend La Pine Schools Board. Board Member Wells Ashby is resigning from the Board after being elected Deschutes County Circuit Court judge. Board Chair Peggy Kincade says mostly, a candidate needs to really want to serve: "No, I don't believe that there's an age limit. The person simply has to reside within the voting precincts that are in Zone One. They have to have been a resident in one of those precincts for at least one year and be a registered voter. But other than that, there aren't any particular qualifications." Candidates should be willing to attend meetings about twice a month plus spend time visiting schools and other district events. Kincaide says schools are a crucial part of our community and if we can prepare our children to be thriving citizens, it will help our community to be successful. You can find an application at the Bend La Pine Schools website.  There will be an informational meeting at the Schools District building on Tuesday, November 30th.

Help Puerto Rico

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
