The Lucy Hammond Band Sister of soul, and local blues mama, vocalist Lucy Hammond tells it like it is in her sultry songs. The long-time local got her start singing at the Laurelwood Academy, a boarding school outside of Hillsboro that her father and grandparents also attended. There she sang in the performance choir and in a gospel group, The King's Messengers. In college, Hammond earned a spot in Walla Walla College's elite performance choir, Schola Cantorum. But college was no match for the allure of being free. It turned out waiting tables wasn’t quite the freedom she was looking for, and luckily a new opportunity came her way. A customer heard her singing at work and asked her to audition for his band. She decided to give it a try, and her singing career was born. Hammond joined The Cobalt Blues Band. Blues held a natural appeal for Hammond. "I fell in love with the pure emotion of it and the ability to fully connect with the audience." Hammond said. After the Cobalt Blues Band, Hammond went on to sing in other local bands including Loose Talk, Geneva, and The Tag. With those bands she toured the northwest’s hotel and club circuit all through the ’80s. The Nineties brought on motherhood and Hammond traded in her gig bag for a diaper bag. She raised two children and when they had grown, Hammond returned to the music she loved. In 2008, Hammond began auditioning band members and formed The Lucy Hammond Band including Kevin Shoepe on drums, George Reiswig on guitar and vocals, Steven Campana on bass and vocals, and Phil Friscia on saxophone, guitar, and vocals. The group released a 5-song original EP in May 2011 which includes the single “Proof ” which snagged the top spot on local roots music charts that fall. Hammond and her band play regular gigs around the Westside. This month they will play a free show at 9 p.m. on September 15 at Ballad Town Billiards in Forest Grove.

Chronicles Continued Brad Cameron is someone who practices what he teaches. The Beaverton School District language arts teacher with ten years of experience has written a book. In fact, he’s written several. Cameron’s second book is due for release this fall and the third is already in the works. The books are part of a young adult series, the Zeke Proper Chronicles. The story follows the Norse-legend inspired adventures of a 14-year-old boy, Zeke, his younger brother, Devan, and their eccentric cousin, Taylre. The supernatural story is laced with historically accurate depictions of traditional Norse culture, as the characters sleuth out ancient mysteries in their ancestral Scandinavian land. The first book in the series, Odin’s Light, was released earlier this year. The Serpent’s Ship - the second book in the series which is set to be released this month - is a continuation of the plot, which thickens as the adolescents continue their mythologicalbased investigations. Cameron’s inspiration for the books came through his profession. Some years ago while working at Aloha High School, he was assigned to teach an elective course on mythology, something he admittedly knew little about. He covered the basic Greek and Roman gods, then that’s when he came to Norse mythology, discovering Odin, Loki, and the other gods of the Norsemen. Cameron’s books are available locally at Jacobsen’s Books & More in downtown Hillsboro - where he will do a book signing from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on September 22. They can also be found at Jan’s Paperbacks in Aloha, and online. www.bradcameron.net

Westside Yoga Yoga is more than just exercise. Itâ€™s an ancient practice used to promote wellness of the mind and spirit in addition to the body. There are many different styles of yoga, all offering a unique combination of postures, meditation practices, breathing patterns, and environments. In order to find the right style of yoga for you, and a studio that meets your needs, consider the location, class times, price, ambience and instructors. On the Westside, there are several studios dedicated exclusively to yoga. These settings can be ideal for novice and advanced students, as there are few distractions (no weightlifters checking out your downward dog), ambient noise and temperature are optimized for the style of yoga offered (usually ranging from around 70 to 100 degrees), and expert instructors provide personal feedback so you know you are doing the poses correctly. Whether you are new to yoga or already a yogi, you can reduce the negative effects of stress in your life and improve your strength and flexibility as you explore some of Washington Countyâ€™s best yoga studios

2012/13 Season Gracie for President
September 7 - 23, 2012 Written and Directed by Norma Hill In the tradition of the Burns & Allen Show featuring George Burns and Gracie Allen and spoofing her actual run for president in 1940.
Knives in Hens
Paul Roder as George Burns and Mallie O’Brien as Gracie Allen star in the presidential election spoof, Gracie for President.resident.
Hillsboro’s Presidential Candidate Election season can be a tense time. No matter who you are voting for this fall, you could no doubt use a little political comic relief. You can find that relief of a presidential caliber at the Hillsboro Artists Regional Theatre (HART) in Downtown Hillsboro this month when the curtain goes up September 7 on the 2012/13 theatre season opening with the play, Gracie for President. The show stars local players Maille O’Brien and Paul Roder as the legendary comedy team Gracie Allen and George Burns. The script spoofs an actual bid that the naive-playing blonde made for the top executive office in 1940 as a comedy stunt. Gracie ran on the “Surprise Party” ticket and her campaign slogan was “Down with common sense.” The Hillsboro production, written and directed by Forest Grove resident Norma Hill-VanderZanden, is a mix of bits from the Burns and Allen network show from the ’50s, complete with commercials interjected and products placed during the action, and the couple’s early days of vaudeville. The action stems from Gracie’s antics and George’s straight man routine, and Hill managed to work in some of the duo’s most classic routines. The play will also showcase some new talent at HART. This will be O’Brien’s first production with the company and Roder’s first season serving as co-artistic

director with Ray Hale. Joining O’Brien and Roder on the stage will be another HART newcomer, Becky Downs - playing several supporting characters - and HART veteran Tony Smith. It’s the 18th season at HART, a nonprofit community theatre company - and the theme of the season is “director’s choice”. With six different directors, there will be six very different productions that run September through June, ranging from original scripts - like Gracie for President - to theatrical classics - like Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream - and modern dramas like Knives in Hens. Audiences will get a little bit of everything at HART this season. The 99-seat theater is located at the corner of 2nd Street and Washington Street in Downtown Hillsboro.

Westside kidS Hand-on Chagall Exhibit Opens at the Portland Children’s Museum Artists come in all sizes at Chagall for Children, the new exhibit at the Portland Children’s Museum. Arranged like a miniature art gallery, this one-of-a-kind exhibit features 14 reproductions of famed artist Marc Chagall’s most famous paintings. Each painting is paired with an audio recording about its history and content, and an interactive component as imaginative as the paintings themselves. Chagall for Children is a place where
children ages 3-10 can not only play with the art, but the art will play back. The Museum’s Artists’ Paint Studio will encourage children to explore color, composition, light, and texture by creating masterpieces of their own. Chagall’s vivid artwork combined with unique, playful, handson activities makes for the most fun you’ve ever had at an art gallery. The exhibit runs September 23 to January 21, 2013. Museum admission is $9 for non-members. Photo courtesy of Kohl Children’s Museum

Couleurs de Provence The finest linens from France can be found at the Cedar Mill Farmers Market this month. Mireille Nett - who lived in Provence, France for 15 years - imports French-made tablecloths, napkins, placemats, aprons, and apparel for women and girls. The items are unique in several ways. The patterns represent the symbols of Provence - lavender, lemons and olives. The colors are also bright and cheerful, making a great addition to your home or a thoughtful gift for a friend. Nett has run her business - Les Couleurs de Provence - for 12 years and makes the Cedar Mill Farmers Market her homebase. For more information, visit www.fabricofprovence.com
