Uncommon Oregonians: Princess at Heart

When Mallory came to work at Northwest Community Credit Union, we didn’t know much more than what was on her resume. But that quickly changed. Mallory is a princess, at least in the eyes of her young daughter.

Uncommon Oregonians: Über Brewer

Some historians believe that beer saved the medieval world when clean drinking water was hard to come by. Today’s microbrews have had an equally positive effect on Bend’s economy by creating jobs and encouraging tourism. Trever Hawman, owner and partner of Bridge 99 Brewery, has been part of that growth.

The Duke of Dutch Ovens (and Fishing Trips)

When Billy Pruitt was growing up in Grants Pass, he knew he wanted to go into the family business. After all, everybody loves to go fishing. And with his dad and great uncle running folks down the Rogue and McKenzie Rivers throughout much of the last century, he had some great footsteps to follow.

A little more than 140 Roseburg High School students hit the football field in their new marching band uniforms. Standing in formation, they began to play. The first notes of that brand new song propelled the audience on a journey.
