For two years I had a dream of founding a Stand-down for Homeless Vets that will come from the private sector. There is a divide that can come to an end in my lifetime. I talked to a gentleman at our Community Garden about having our neighborhood welcome the new VA Healthcare Center. We talked about a Veterans Community Garden hours before I would go to the Ken Kesey Square. This house sits like an oasis, and can be a monument to our vanishing past.
After the ceremony I talked with the developer, Terry Moreland, about his giving thanks to the Register Guard for giving the Vet Clinic a very good deal on the property on Chad that is 500 yards from this vacant home. On January 11th. I proposed a Newspaper Museum be built in Ken Kesey Square. I felt this was a sign of things to come.
“How about a Newspaper Museum and Reader’s Sanctuary?”
