Some of us know (or think we know) our paths from a young age. We follow those trails through 12 years of school, and then four (plus) more. Some of us don't. We flounder, we search, we know what we want but we don't know how to achieve it. The crucial component in all these scenarios? Education.

Down in the flood

Politics and other mistakes

Letters to the Portland editor: April 24,2009

What was once a top-quality, prestigious paper, has surely come down.

At Geno's, January 30, 2009

Dawn arrives

A local guide to Earth-friendly living
