I had heard that middle and high school students need more sleep time and that their circadian rhythms would have them go to bed about 11 p.m. and wake up at 8 a.m. Most of them have to be at school or on a bus by then. Consider this: a century ago schools in our country started at […]
I’m Eugene’s First Citizen. I join a relatively short list of people who’ve helped shape our community. I feel proud and humble. I was honored at the Eugene Chamber’s Celebration of Business just a month ago.

This is the season when animals hibernate and nature sleeps, we humans tend to turn inward as well. Solstice marks the time to celebrate the light and to get moving again!
Are you up for a random act of kindness the day after Thanksgiving? For the third year, Scott Wong, an artist in Wisconsin, is encouraging people to make an art piece and leave it in a public place for someone to find, pick up, take home and love. Let’s see how much art and love we can flood into our Eugene/Springfield community!
