By Brenna Wiegand Silver Falls School District has hired a third-party investigator to review a formal complaint brought against five Silver Falls School Board members at the board’s Nov. 25 work session. Directors Shelly Nealon, Lori McLaughlin, Janet Allanach, Jennifer Traeger and Jonathan Edmonds are cited in the document, signed by 112 community members. Ken Hector and Lesli Kaufman read the complaint to the board which, they say, is the result of public record requests and “a growing public concern regarding verbal and written communication between board members, community members and members of special interest groups.” The complainants request that Director Shelly Nealon resign due to “the severity and quantity of violations that demonstrate deliberate and continual disregard for board policy and for the overall well-being of the Silver Falls School Board and District.” Additionally, it calls for the immediate censure and further training of directors Traeger, Edmonds, Allanach and McLaughlin and a review of the complaint by a third-party investigator. “Should this investigation uncover additional occurrences of improper conduct and/or policy violations, we ask for the

immediate resignation of those board members involved,” Hector read. The report cites “an organized effort by a small group, including board members, aimed at changing the culture and practice within our District to further their own agenda. “This appears to include ending site-based budgeting and decision-making, closing small schools and mandating certain curricular programming which may be contrary to student, teacher, principal or site choice,” the complaint continues. “These communications also suggest a theme of undermining or removing board and committee members and administrators who stand against them.” The complaint includes about 90 pages of documentation – mostly emails – that reference about 20 community members and indications of gatherings and other communications outside of and prior to board meetings in a manner “entirely contrary to the platform of transparency they claim to champion. “Finally, information found in the request clearly demonstrates that certain board members have worked behind the scenes with members of the public to influence the resignation of former Superintendent Andy Bellando, a steadfast supporter of the values and vision of Silver Falls School District,” the complaint continues. “In addition, they continue to discount those who share these same values...

The complainants claim that each cited director’s conduct violates “one or more district policies found in the Silver Falls Board Governance Policy manual, the Board Superintendent Working Agreement, the Superintendent Employment Contract, Agreement for Confidentiality Covenants in Hiring, State of Oregon Public Meeting Laws, State of Oregon Public Records Laws and State of Oregon Executive Session Laws. “These violations include pursuing personal vendettas against district staff by conspiring with each other and with members of the public to influence employment, utilizing personal email and text messaging for board business to conceal communications from the public. “These violations… put our district at great risk of falling into dysfunction that will disrupt student achievement for years to come,” Hector read. “We have listed a total of seven policies violated by one or more of the five board members named in this complaint. “Of particular concern, two listed for Director Nealon with regard to violation of Executive Session Laws and Confidentiality Covenant for Hiring may in fact constitute

investigation or follow-up.
“Based on the preponderance of evidence presented in this complaint and from statements made by board members to members of the public, we believe overall trust in our current board has been compromised,” the complaint states. “The recent public information requests cited in this complaint contain incomplete email conversations and transcripts of texts rather than actual screenshots, suggesting the redaction of pertinent information. Furthermore, information from Executive Session meetings has made its way into the public domain.”
“The role of Ms. Patterson, and anyone subsequently hired to complete a further investigation, will be to produce an objective, independent review and investigation ensuring a transparent and thorough analysis and full report to the public, not to advocate for or take up defense of individual board members,” Peterson said. “If there are matters requiring further investigation, the District will contract with another independent investigator from another legal firm to complete that work.”
Attorney Jollee Patterson of Miller Nash Graham & Dunn, Portland, has been tasked with an initial review of the allegations.
“I am going to wait to see the results of the independent investigator’s preliminary report,” Shelly Nealon said. “I would suggest that the press look into a false narrative being spread by a person or a group of people about the board wanting to close our outlying schools, removing site-based budgeting and having an ultra-liberal agenda.
“Ms. Patterson has over 25 years of legal experience working with a wide range of education and public institutions, including public and private universities, community colleges, school districts, private schools, special districts and other public entities,” Silver Falls School District Superintendent Paul Peterson said. “She will review the complaint, associated exhibits and the other documents related to or referenced in the complaint… and provide the District with a written report that will be provided to the school board and made publicly available, including the identification of any matters requiring further
“This kind of rhetoric only creates chaos, confusion and fear for our district and community,” Nealon added. “Our new board is working hard to move forward after a difficult period and I am committed to that as well.” Those wishing to view the document submitted to the district in its entirety may request a copy through the district office, 503-873-5303.

Something To Think About
Counties win one By Mary Owen After week-long deliberations, a jury sided with 14 counties – including Marion – in a $1.06 billion class action lawsuit against the state of Oregon. With financial backing from the timber industry, Linn County led the case against the state of Oregon and the Oregon Department of Forestry. In addition to Marion, Benton, Clackamas, Columbia, Coos, Josephine, Klamath, Lane, Lincoln, Polk, Tillamook and Washing counties joined Linn, as well as 151 special taxing districts. If the jury decision stands, Marion County would receive $9.6 million in damages and $11.5 million in future damages predicted for the next 50 years. The funds would come out of state income taxes. “The win should mean more sustainable logging, jobs, and economic vitality,” said Sam Brentano, Marion County
State loses billion-dollar timber lawsuit, plans appeal
commissioner. “The reality is the state robbed rural counties of revenues to pay for services and it needs to come back. That would be wonderful, and it would be fair.” The November decision came on the heels of a four-week trial at the Linn County Court in Albany. The counties sued the state for breach of contract, claiming inadequate timber harvest over the last two decades had cost loss of jobs and revenue. State attorneys countered that the counties wanted to allow clearcutting of state forests without caring about endangered species. The case stems from the Forest Acquisition Act of 1941 passed that allowed the state to designate about 1,000 square miles of land from 15 counties as state forests, managing the land “to secure the greatest permanent value.” The counties were to receive the lion’s share of logging revenues, which they claim has not happened.
The state’s failure to maximize timber harvest by logging state forests has cost counties an estimated $35 million per year, according to various reports. “We’ve been watching this case closely,” said Kristina McNitt, president of the Oregon Forest & Industries Council. “What a fantastic win for the trust lands counties. Let’s hope it serves to re-establish the counties as partners with ODF in managing these valuable assets, going forward. Rural Oregon has been discounted and left behind for far too long. “The industry originally supported this lawsuit for good reason – as you know, the sector operates almost exclusively in the rural counties impacted by the state’s breach of contract,” she added. “It’s their employees and families who are living in communities with limited opportunities and underfunded public services.” According to McNitt, except for some
early seed money to develop the legal theory several years ago, her organization has had no direct involvement or standing as a class member, intervenor or any operational control. The state will appeal and negotiations with the counties involved are likely to take place. “I would like to thank the dedicated lawyers and staff at the Oregon Department of Justice who worked tirelessly to bring this case to verdict,” said Fred Boss, Oregon DOJ’s deputy attorney general. “While we are disappointed in (the) verdict, we believe there are strong arguments to be made on appeal, and we plan to appeal this decision.” McNitt said, “A decision to respond to an inevitable appeal is Linn County’s to make, but I’d expect and support a strong effort in that arena.”

Author Tom Ewing, third from left, and his supporters contribute proceeds from a book-signing event to the Mt. Angel Senior Center. JIM KINGHORN
Book signing benefits Mt. Angel Senior Center A book signing party in November raised $2,662 for the Mt. Angel Senior Center. Tom Ewing sold and signed 75 copies of his tale of the First Crusade, Jerusalem Falls, published this fall. In addition to the price of the book, supporters Robert and Reagan Purdy of Tiny’s Tavern where the event was held, Mt. Angel Councilor Pete Wall, and Zan Ewing provided matching funds. All of the proceeds were donated to the center. Ewing said he was intrigued when he read a history of the First Crusade 20 years ago,
adding, “(You) can’t make up the stuff that happened in that four-year journey.” He researched his way through more than 100 books, finally deciding to write a novel. His monk’s tale represents the fruits of years of labor. Friends encouraged the booksigning party, which Ewing said he was reluctant to do until he hit upon the idea of making it a charitable event. Now the senior center – and fans of historical fiction – are the beneficiaries. Jerusalem Falls is available on amazon.com.

Handshakes, blockbusters and popcorn By Dixon Bledsoe
emotionally moved when I saw the fields filled with toiling, wonderful young African American actors and white crew members working on the set between scenes. It was beautiful and touching. All these people had jobs because I did my work through representing the writer/ director, Kasi Lemmons, known for her work on Eve’s Bayou, among other things. Working with Kasi, through my representation, I helped build this film.”
In many ways, Frank Wuliger’s career as a Hollywood agent is like an onion, with layers upon layers revealing complexities that can be so deep they become frighteningly simple. In some ways, he is a throwback. Who in Hollywood conducts deals with a handshake as the basis of doing business?
Wuliger is also fun and a bit like the kid in Jerry McGuire who informs the Tom Cruise character, “Did you know the human brain weighs over nine pounds?” He works into the conversation information about the highest profit margin in the movie industry:
Wuliger, a partner in The Gersh Agency and an agent for many writers, directors and producers of some of our favorite movies, recently purchased a small farm outside of Silverton. He travels back and forth between the glitz of Tinsel Town and the serenity of a seven-acre parcel in rural Oregon that is complete with ducks, geese, and a large fish who has a commanding presence in the tranquil pond. He and his wife Cynthia are adjusting to the quiet, the area, and the chill. Having spent a good share of his life in Southern California’s warm sun, it can be difficult waking up to icicles, rain, and bone-chilling cold after having spent a week in Los Angeles. That said, he adds, “I love the pace of Silverton.”
“Popcorn. The sale of popcorn. There is about a 25-30 percent profit margin.” Perhaps most intriguing, are his insights into the industry he serves, and why he does what he does. “The business is run by the Movie Gods,” he said. Frank Wuliger with the writer/director of Harriet Kasi Lemmons; Deborah Martin Chase, producer; and Daniela Taplan Lundberg, producer in Washington D.C. SUBMITTED PHOTO
Con Air, the Nicolas Cage blockbuster, had Wuliger’s fingerprints on the credits, as did the John Travolta film, The General’s Daughter. He works with the writers of the Despicable Me franchise, Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s nephew, Daniel Stiepleman, who wrote the critically acclaimed 2018 movie On the Basis of Sex, and is proud of the new movie, Harriet, in theaters now. The movie is the first made
about Harriet Tubman, the iconic “conductor” on the Underground Railroad who escaped slavery herself and then time after time returned south to help other slaves escape to freedom in the North.
Wuliger smiles and said, “The Movie Gods wanted Rob Marshall to direct it. It sat for some time until they got their way.
What is he most proud of? Like the onion, there are many overlays.
“And remember the movie, The Man Who Would Be King? John Huston wanted Clark Gable and Humphrey Bogart to play the leads. Even Bogey and Clark couldn’t get it made. The Movie Gods made it a few decades later, starring Michael Caine and Sean Connery.
“When I visited the set of Harriet, I was visibly and

Hollywood agent reflects on career aimed at bringing uplifting stories to the screen movies. The Movie Gods do,” he added. “We can only work with the people involved, work our fannies off, do our best and the rest is out of our control.” “If I go to my grave with three movies, it would be because of my ethos. I helped build Son of Rambow, Harriet and Eve’s Bayou (again with Kasi Lemmons). “The 2006 movie Son of Rambow [is] about two 12-yearold boys in England who act out the movie, Rambo. I worked with writer/director Garth Jennings [who Wuliger also worked with on the animated musical, Sing] – I loved that movie. These movies I helped build would not have been made if I didn’t walk on the planet,” he recounted with satisfaction. As for his favorites in general? “The Searchers, with John Wayne and John Ford. It had all the bones of Star Wars in it, way before that came out. Sullivan’s Travels, a 1941 movie about a Hollywood director who goes on the road as a hobo to learn about life and the downtrodden, was wonderful. “I absolutely loved this year’s Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood. It was an incredible movie that hit perfectly on the world we live in – dark times crushing good
Our Town Life
and light times, then coming back to the light times. Hollywood was fun, energetic, and dynamic. But then came Charles Manson and the murder of Sharon Tate. It cast a deep, broad, dark shadow over the good and fun, light times. Much like 9-11, the Kennedy and King assassinations. The beauty of the film is that it is, like a fairytale, putting a positive light onto a brutal period, with a different ending.” Currently, Wuliger is working with actor Sidney Poitier and his family on a new project about the awardwinning actor’s life. He is also working on Sergio, a 2020 Sundance Film Festival entry from Netflix about Sergio Vierra De Mello, a U.N. human rights diplomat trapped in the rubble of a Baghdad hotel after a terrorist bomb. Another project is an upcoming Apple series from the creators of Despicable Me. His favorites for this year’s big awards? “I never predict award outcomes”, said the man who regularly attends the Cannes Film Festival, the Toronto Film Festival, and the Sundance Film Festival. “I thoroughly enjoyed Laundromat; [The] Farewell; Just
Mercy; Two Popes; Parasite; Uncut Gems with Adam Sandler; Marriage Story, probably my second favorite; Bombshell; and The Report. But Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood moved me in so many ways. I cried.” Why does this USC and Loyola Law School graduate do what he does and what does he enjoy most? “I do this because I want to fight for the light, especially when things have been so dark. I want positive humanism to be the ultimate form of entertainment. Entertainment is a positive human value. “Joker [was] a very good movie, but was very nihilistic and just too much for my interests. I want films to inspire positive humanism. “The basis of my beliefs started from my work with the George McGovern campaign and working on the 1976 Carter campaign. It is ironic because I started out as a young Republican but became an anti-war member of the Students for a Democratic Society after Nixon’s 1968 speech about not ending the war. It provoked me, so I made the shift. “I chose to go into films to put a positive humanistic overlay through entertainment.”

A Slice of the Pie
Get out of the way... there’s pie to be made
At 7:30 a.m. one morning my kids baked a pumpkin pie. What else would they do?
Family’s favorite Vermont Pumpkin Pie
It wasn’t Thanksgiving or Christmas – but we had a can of pumpkin and they had the motivation, so a pie was made from scratch and in the oven before anyone had even eaten breakfast, let alone changed out of their pajamas. But, as messy and chaotic as that cooking project was, I have to applaud anyone who wakes up in the morning ready to attempt a complicated recipe they have never made before – especially when they do it as a team without fighting. Now, how many adults do you know who could do that? These kids – aged ten, eight and three – just blow my mind at every turn. When they want
This pie has been a favorite in my family since I was a kid – when, during the holidays, my mom insisted that we eat the leftovers for breakfast. something, they go after it. And their skills of negotiation are outstanding. They knew there was no way I was going to let them bake a pie this early, let alone eat it for breakfast. So they didn’t ask. They just did it. And what parent in their right mind, when faced by that kind of persistence, is going to stand in their way. I did insist on the addition of one healthy food to each child’s plate, but they ate pie – one big, healthy slice, slathered in homemade whipped cream for each. And then they cleaned up the mess because they know, no mother in her right mind is going to allow a trio of children to traipse into her kitchen and bake cream puffs – their plan for the next day – if there is a mess. So now that I know it can be done. Three kids can get out of bed, make their own food and clean it all up before 10 o’clock that leaves only one question...

It’s best served with a healthy dollop of fresh whipped cream. Enjoy! Ingredients: • 1 ½ cups flour • 1/3 cup cold butter (cut into small pieces) • ½ tsp salt • 3 tablespoons cold water (approximately) • 1 ½ cups milk • ½ tsp maple flavoring • ¾ cup brown sugar • ½ tsp cinnamon • ¼ tsp ginger • ½ tsp salt • ¼ tsp freshly grated nutmeg • 1 ½ cups pumpkin • 3 eggs (beaten) Either using a pastry cutter, your hands or a food processer,
combine cold butter flour and salt until it is the texture of wet sand. Do not overwork. Slowly add cold water one tablespoon at a time until a ball of dough just forms. It should not be sticky but not crumble either. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for an hour or overnight. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a saucepan, bring to boiling point milk and maple flavoring. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix pumpkin, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, salt, nutmeg and eggs. Slowly stir warm milk mixture into pumpkin mixture. Set aside to cool. Remove pie dough from refrigerator. Place on floured counter and roll into the approximate size and shape of your pie pan. Tuck into the pan leaving an overhang so that the edges can be crimped, creating a crust. Pour pumpkin mixture into unbaked pie crust. Bake the pie on top of a rimmed baking sheet, to minimize spillage, for 45 minutes or until the pie is almost set, with just a bit of a wobble in the middle when you jiggle it. Let cool completely on a rack before serving.

Second at state
JFK has been in football final three times in five years
Three times in the finals in five years. That’s the record the Kennedy High football program can tout. The Trojans, runners-up to Heppner in 2015 and victors against Santiam in last year’s Class 2A title match, advanced to play Heppner again in this year’s final Nov. 30 in Hermiston. However, the Mustangs triumphed again, taking a 12-7 win in a fierce defensive struggle. “I knew our defense would keep them well below their season average,” Kennedy coach Joe Panuke told Our Town. “Our defense is disciplined and play really hard. Our offense had had a really good week of practice and I was expecting them to Joe Panuke get more points on the board than we did. Heppner did a great job of maintaining gaps, ran hard to the football and tackled well. Their defensive line was much better than I expected as well.” Heppner, the No. 3 seed, held the Trojans to 48 yards rushing and kept Kennedy out of the end zone until there were 45 seconds. The Mustangs finished a perfect 13-0, while top-ranked Kennedy wound up 10-2. The Mustangs scored on the second play from scrimmage, a 56-yard scamper by
quarterback Jayden Wilson. The Mustangs still led 6-0 late in the first half and were driving toward a possible second touchdown. But Isaiah Basargin of the Trojans intercepted a Wilson pass at the 7 and romped 80 yards to the Heppner 13 where he was tackled by Jackson Lehman… as the first-half clock ran out. “Isaiah made a great play on the ball and almost scored.” Panuke said. “It was a great effort on his part (but the Heppner) kid didn’t quit and took a great angle to cut him off before he could score.” The Mustangs expanded the lead to 12-0 with 5:35 left in the game on a 2-yard run by Wilson on 4th-and-2. Kennedy then marched 73 yards to its lone score, a 13-yard pass from quarterback Dylan Kleinschmit to running back David Reyes. Kleinschmit, the player of the game for Kennedy, hit Basargin four times for 42 yards on the march. Bruce Beyer connected on the PAT kick, but Heppner recovered the onside kick and ran out the clock. Kleinschmit hit on 11 of 23 passes for 114 yards. He was intercepted twice and
Merry Christmas & Peace on Earth
sacked four times. Basargin finished with five catches for 59 yards. Reyes rushed for 39 yards and caught a pair of passes. Beyer had 71 all-purpose yards, including 33 yards on kickoff returns, 27 yards on receptions and 11 yards rushing. Sam Grosjacques led Kennedy tacklers with eight, including a tackle for loss, while Beyer added five tackles and Basargin and Brady Traeger four apiece. “We couldn’t be more proud of this team,” Panuke said. “They worked hard and played even harder every game. They showed toughness and resiliency and never stopped believing in each other. It isn’t easy going to back-to-back championship games. It has been really special to be a part of.” The football title game ends a supremely successful fall season for Kennedy, winners of the OSAA Cup for all-around athletics, academics and sportsmanship the past four years. The Kennedy volleyball team won the Class 2A title, the football team took second and the Trojans’ girls cross country team was seventh in the Class3A-2A-1A competition. Volleyball: The honors continue to flow to the Kennedy volleyball team. The Trojans, Class 2A champions with a 33-1 record this season, claimed the top two awards on the all-state team. Middle blocker Sophia Carley was named player of the year and Kennedy’s Laura Beyer was named the top coach.
Carley was joined by four other Trojans on the all-state team. Outside hitter Elise Suing, setter Ellie Cantu and libero Hailey Arritola made the first team, with middle blocker Emma Beyer earning second-team honors. “This is a great honor for these girls,” Coach Beyer said. “Our season is a great testament to all the hard work they and their teammates put in this volleyball season.” Hoops: Silverton senior forward Grant Dunn has announced plans to play college basketball at Multnomah University in Portland. Multnomah is an NAIA school that plays in the Cascade Collegiate Conference, which also includes Corban University of Salem and Northwest Christian of Eugene. The 6-6 Dunn has been a sharp-shooting 3-point specialist the past two seasons for the Foxes, who have finished fourth and third in the Class 5A tournament. Running: Korbin Wedding of Gervais captured the Dec. 7 5-kilometer run that was held in conjunction with Mount Angel-Silverton Hazelnut Fest. Wedding ran the course in 18:06.5, 24 seconds better than runner-up Tommy O’Neill. Sophia Patterson of Salem finished fifth overall and was the first female runner, crossing in 20:20.1. A total of 144 people participated. Follow me on Twitter.com @jameshday.

Technical expertise earns Bill Dallas honors
Mt. Angel Auto Body owner Bill Dallas, an ASE Certified collision repair and refinish technician, was recently honored with a national achievement award as the Car-O-Liner/Snap-on/ASE Master Collision Repair & Refinish Technician of the Year. Fifty-three automotive professionals were recognized Nov. 13 at the Fall Board of Governors meeting of the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence held in Phoenix, Arizona. ASE annual awards spotlight top scorers on the ASE Certification tests from among the ranks of the approximately quarter million ASE certified professionals nationwide. John Wolf, President, Snap-on Business Solutions; Tom Trisdale, ASE Board Chair; and Timothy Zilke, ASE President & CEO, presented the award to Dallas. “Bill, who has owned Mt. Angel Auto Body for 17 years, is one of the outstanding ASE certified professionals recognized annually by different segments of the automotive service and repair industry. Each of these elite technicians is presented with an industry-specific award recognizing their achievement,” said Zilke.

“ASE has honored extraordinary industry professionals from across the nation for more than 40 years,” Zilke added. “This is made possible by the support of our many award sponsors, whose ranks include some of the best-known names in the industry. We are proud to partner with Car-O-Liner and Snap-on to recognize Bill’s commitment to excellence in providing the very best in collision repair. This dedication is reflected in the talented professionals we recognize each year and Bill represents the best of the best.” Forty-one companies from both OEM and Aftermarket segments sponsored the individual technician recognition awards in the Auto, Truck, Bus, Collision and Parts categories, along with awards for instructors. In addition to looking for top scores on ASE tests, award sponsors examine on-the-job excellence, community service and other factors when selecting honorees. The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence was founded in 1972 as a non-profit, independent organization dedicated to improving the quality of automotive service and repair through voluntary testing and certification of automotive professionals.
Pudding River Wine Cellars and its winemaker Sean Allen received the following accolades for its entries: • Double Gold Medal, 96 points: 2014 Reserve Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley • Gold Medal, 90 points: 2014 Syrah Dessert Wine (port-style), Walla Walla Valley • Silver Medal: 2015 Reserve Chardonnay, Willamette Valley
• Silver Medal: 2014 Syrah, Walla Walla Valley Located near Silverton and now into its second decade as a winery, vineyard, tasting room and custom-crush business, Pudding River Wine Cellars produces boutique-styled Willamette Valley and Walla Walla AVA wines under its own label and for its custom-crush clients in the valley and on the Oregon coast. “We’re excited that our 2014 Reserve Pinot Noir won its third Double Gold in competition, and our newly released 2015 Reserve Chardonnay also showed strongly in San Francisco,” said Pudding River owner and winemaker Sean Allen. This year’s chief judge at SFIWC was wine expert Steven Spurrier who created “The Judgement of Paris,” a 1976 competition pivotal to elevating California wines to the international stage.

People Out Loud
Worthy of interaction Several years ago, I had the pleasure of visiting Salt Lake City for business at Christmas. The gentleman I was visiting was kind enough to ask me to join his family for a professional production of Michael McLean’s The Forgotten Carols. It was so moving it nearly brought me to tears. One of the most touching scenes was a group of homeless people gathered around a trash can fire, warming their hands and singing about being homeless, yet still having faith. One of the lines that impacted me most was about Jesus’ time on earth, homeless.
“Nothing kept His heart from giving Most of His life was living Homeless, Homeless He showed it’s how we live, Not where.”
Another song from this incredible musical play is from the perspective of the Inn Keeper. While we are all familiar with the Three Wisemen, The First Noel, and O’ Holy Night, we have never given thought to the man who turned Mary and Joseph
away. The song Let Him In brings him to the forefront.
“I am a man forgotten. Nobody knows my name. Thousands of years have failed to Fully erase my shame. I turned a profit nicely that day. But I turned the couple away. I turned them away.”
We have so many “unhoused” people locally, and it is hard for us to know how to help them. I thought of my newest friend, Joe, the anomaly. We met 10 months ago on a sub-freezing night in our local sheltering/warming center. We laughed, we talked, we broke bread, and we shared stories. Joe was engaging. I call
Getting in touch with our humanity him an anomaly because he breaks many stereotypes. He is exceptionally articulate and states that he has a college degree. He is bright, engaging, and thoughtful. I saw him a few weeks later, on the street, and he recognized me. I told him I wanted him to go to my favorite coffee hangout, ask for a fancy coffee drink, and have the owner put the cost on my tab. A few days later I found a note on my desk, having no clue who it was from but impressed with the nearly flawless cursive, handwritten note, thanking me for the coffee. It was signed, “Your friend, Joe.” Only once did he ask anything of me, and I did what I think was the right thing before helping. Trust but verify. My trust in what he was asking for, help with a prescription, was validated by the pharmacist. He was grateful, and at no time did I ever believe his gratefulness was anything but. I saw him several times after that, usually pushing an unhoused gentleman bound to a wheelchair, in the wet and cold, holding an umbrella over the man’s head. This is the guy several

As a friend of mine once said recently, “It is important to treat the individuals struggling with homelessness as people.” In an article I read recently on dealing with those without a home, it advised us to “look each person in the eye and be mindful of not cringing, if they reach out a hand or accidentally graze your sleeve. No matter what the struggle a person may go through, they are, before, during, and after their homelessness, just another human being on this planet, worthy of interaction.”

people have tried to help but he is not always diplomatic in his responses. But Joe did one thing that struck me “in my feels.” He talked to him with respect, treated him like a human being who happened to be down on his luck. He was, simply put, kind. That’s my buddy, Joe.
