Amazing Women... Incredible Stories Heidi Cronin Mandell, President, Cronin Company

Heidi Cronin Mandell is president of the Cronin Company, one of the Northwest’s leading independent wholesale distributors of floor covering products. She likes to say she started in the family business by crashing the family car at age 15. Careening down dirt roads in Eastern Oregon, she didn’t see a post and made a large dent in the Suburban. She paid for the repair by working in the family business. Since that inauspicious start, Heidi has proven her value to this fifth-generation company. Her leadership was not a foregone conclusion: In fact at first, she wasn’t really interested in flooring. That was until she couldn’t find a job after college and she was “invited” to open a new branch of the Cronin Company in Medford. There she was in charge of everything. “Running a branch is the best training possible…you deal with customers and suppliers, but you also have to know how the warehouse works and how to make deliveries if your truck driver calls in sick,” Heidi says. When she relocated to Portland, it was with a new resolve, and she began her ascent from the purchasing department to the president’s office.

Leading into the Future Heidi realizes that she is the future of a company that has been in the family for five generations— and she is boldly leading it into the sixth. Over the years, her forebears moved the company from producing saddles and harnesses, to distributing auto parts and later, floor covering. Under Heidi’s watch, the company will continue to evolve, retaining its position as a premier floor covering operation, while adding the cutting edge technology and systems that that will attract the next generation of customers and employees. To achieve that, Heidi is immersed in all aspects of the business every day and is laser focused on learning and growing. Industry associations help her keep a watchful eye on the market and stay tuned to new industry ideas and opportunities. Her “all or nothing” approach to business has led to leadership and three industry boards have tapped her expertise. She’s the president of Flooring Association Northwest and presidentelect of the North American Association of Floor Covering Distributors, all while also holding a seat on the board of directors of the Floor Coverings Distributor Alliance Powerhold. She still has the spirit of that 15-year-old driver. But now there’s no downhill in sight and she’s got the Cronin Company’s pedal to the metal on the highway to success.

Twenty-one-year-old human rights activist and North Korean defector Yeonmi Park is fast becoming the face and voice of her oppressed people, as well as an inspiration for freedom-loving individuals throughout the world. In the fall of 2014 she was a featured speaker at the Oslo Freedom Forum and The North Korean defector One Young World Summit in Dublin, where her passionate, deeply personal about the brutality of the North Korean regime became an internaand human rights activist speech tional phenomenon. Since then, she’s been named one of the Top 100 Global Women by the BBC and profiled in numerous media outlets. Yeonmi was born in 1993 in Heysan, North Korea, to a family of midlevel civil servants. She grew up in a society devoted to two things: worship of the Dear Leader, Kim Jong-Il, and hatred for all enemies of the regime. She taught what to think and feel and say, and to trust no one. “Even the WED., APRIL 6, 2016 was mice and birds have ears,” her mother warned her. At age nine, Yeonmi witnessed her best friend’s mother shot by a firing squad for a minor offense. But watching a smuggled video of the film Titanic gave Yeonmi a glimpse of another world, where people were willing to die for love, not just for the state. It was her first taste of freedom. By then her parents were smuggling gold, silver and nickel to Chinese traders just to keep the family alive during a relentless famine. But in 2002 her father was arrested and sentenced to 17 years in a forced labor camp, where he was tortured and soon fell ill. He realized the only way to avoid starving to death was to escape North Korea. The women would go first. In winter of 2007, Yeonmi’s sister crossed the frozen river into China, followed by Yeonmi and her mother. They endured terrible hardships while hiding from Chinese authorities who hunt down escapees and return them to North Korea. Yeonmi’s mother was raped by traffickers and her sister was lost and presumed dead. Her father, who eventually joined them, later died of colon cancer and Yeonmi buried his ashes on a lonely mountain. Finally, on a freezing night in early 2009, Yeonmi and her mother walked and crawled across a stretch of the Gobi desert to Mongolia, where they sought refuge in the South Korean embassy. Incredibly, Yeonmi’s sister Eunmi escaped five years later, and was reunited with them in Seoul. Because she often felt that she had been forgotten, Yeonmi is determined that the world must never forget the North Korean people who are suffering and dying every day. She believes that change will eventually come to North Korea through young people like herself—“The Black Market Generation”—whose exposure to grassroots capitalism and Western media is eroding the authority of the Kim dynasty. But in the meantime we must demand an end to a regime that survives through total repression, deliberate starvation, forced labor camps and institutionalized atrocities. As Yeonmi often quotes the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Yeonmi Park lives in New York City, and has just released her first book, “In Order to Live.”

Among all 36 counties the local weekly wage ranked fourth in the Fourth Quarter 2012 Jason Chaney Central Oregonian

Crook County may have one of the highest unemployment rates in Oregon, but those who earn an

income make more on average than most the state’s other counties. A recent report compiled by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor and Statistics revealed that Crook County ranks fourth in weekly wage among all 36 counties for Fourth Quarter 2012, and second out of the 31 counties with fewer than 75,000 residents. Washington County tops the

state at an average of $1,101 per week, while Multnomah County averages $988, Benton County $918, and Crook County $908. All four counties exceed the state average wage of $871 per week, but three of them fall short of the $1,000-per-week national average.

One last patrol for a retired sheriff By JOSH KULLA The Spokesman Back in 1971, law enforcement technology did not include much, if anything, that could remotely be considered digital. That’s the world of policing inhabited by Bill Bell, who served as sheriff of Wasco County from 1968 to 1971. Today, Bell is retired and lives in Wilsonville. And the tools used by current police ofďŹ cers are replete with technology only hinted at in 1960s cinema. “Everything from the concept of a computer in the car that automatically reads license plates and talks to you, that’s ‘Star Trek’ stuff,â€? said Sgt. James Rhodes, chief of the Wilsonville Police Department. “He was sheriff in 1971, so you can imagine the vast difference.

Chastity Glass is beautiful. Her blonde hair falls in waves, just barely grazing her tanned shoulders. She wears glasses, sometimes, and her unlined face is rarely without a small, comforting smile. She looks like she could be a surfer, or possibly a librarian. What sets her apart from the scores of other blonde, tan and happy 30-somethings from California is a poem tattooed on her right forearm: “i am scared of being scared‌ and so, I am not even if i am.â€? She was 27 years old, living in Hollywood and recently dumped when she met Anthony Glass, a handsome video editor who worked at her office. They were instantly attracted to each other, exchanging poetic and increasingly flirtatious emails and quickly falling in love. Just a few months after they started dating, their love story, a story of what she calls “that young 20s love when you start making plans,â€? was unexpectedly and indelibly altered. He was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer. When he told her, she didn’t think twice about whether to stay with him: they were in this together

Marin Alsop

Groundbreaking Maestra Conductor Marin Alsop made history as the Music Director of the Baltimore Symphony, the first woman to head a major American orchestra. A protégée of Leonard Bernstein, in 1991 she made her professional conducting debuts with the Philadelphia Orchestra, the New York Philharmonic, the London Symphony, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic. She continues to appear regularly with these orchestras, in addition to the London Philharmonic. Alsop took up the post of Principal Conductor of the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra, Brazil’s premiere orchestra, in 2012, and became Music Director in 2013.

Lessons from a Maestra: Leadership, Innovation, and Risk-taking

Winner of Gramophone’s “Artist of the Year” award and a member of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences, Alsop was the first conductor to be named a MacArthur “Genius” Fellow. In 2006 she was the only classical musician invited to the annual World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. In 2013, she became the first woman to conduct the Last Night of the Proms in its 119-year history. In 2008, along with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Marin unveiled an education initiative, ORCHkids, providing music education, instruments, and mentorship to Baltimore’s youth. Alsop has been profiled in TIME and named one of “America’s Most Powerful Women” by Newsweek. She can be heard regularly as a commentator on NPR’s Weekend Edition program, Marin on Music. In 2012 she was featured in the book, How Great Women Lead: A Mother-Daughter Adventure into the Lives of Women Shaping the World.

Jeannette Walls

Memoirist and bestselling author

The Glass Castle: Demon Hunting and Other Life Lessons

Critics have called Jeannette Walls’ memoir The Glass Castle, “spectacular,” “extraordinary,” “incredible,” and “riveting.” A New York Times best-seller for more than six years, it has sold 4.5 million copies in the United States alone and been translated into 22 languages. It was named one of the “Top 10 Books of the Decade” by Amazon, and has won numerous awards including the Christopher Award, the American Library Association’s Alex Award, and the Books for Better Living Award. In 2012, Lionsgate purchased the rights to The Glass Castle and will be releasing the movie starring Jennifer Lawrence. In The Glass Castle, Walls describes growing up in the desert of the American Southwest and then in a West Virginia mining town with her three siblings and the brilliant, unorthodox, irresponsible parents who manage at once to neglect them, love them, and teach them to face their fears. Despite all her hardships, Walls develops the determination to leave West Virginia on her own at the age of sixteen, move to New York City, enroll in Barnard College, and eventually become a wellknown columnist for New York magazine and MSNBC.com and a television personality. This inspirational book has been taught at universities in courses on literature, psychology, parenting, child development, and poverty. Walls has spoken at colleges, corporations, and business associations about overcoming hardship and the keys to turning adversity to your advantage. Half Broke Horses: A True Life Novel, was released in October 2009, and was an immediate New York Times best-seller.

About Voices In 1993, Francine Read founded VOICES, INC. creating the VOICES Lecture Series in Portland, Oregon, a multievening series filled with insight, entertainment and intelligent talk. Over the years the series has featured the world’s most interesting women and many of the hottest women speakers on the circuit today. It is not a woman’s issues forum but a series that addresses a wonderful array of issues as seen from women’s perspectives. Both women and men are welcome to participate. VOICES is at the Tiffany Center-Emerald Ballroom in Portland. It is a stunning display of historic craftsmanship and is a classic ballroom-style venue with soaring ceilings, handcrafted detailing and a full scale theater stage offering good parking, restaurants and adjacent MAX Light Rail. The VOICES Supper Club is in the Crystal Room at the Center, offering a fixed dinner menu prior to the program sponsored by Rafati’s Catering.
