Kimberly Continued from E1 “It was a ‘stop-and-smell-theroses’ kind of message about how people should slow down instead of living at such a fast pace,” Kimberly said. Even though Kimberly was among the 80 percent of students cut during the first round, she said she was proud of her speech and of making it so far to the tournament. “I kind of didn’t want to go into the room, I was so nervous,” Kimberly said. “It was definitely scary.” Kimberly loved being a part of her high school’s speech and debate team. She said one of the best things about it was the diversity of the students involved, coming from different backgrounds and with different interests. Yet they were all able to get along and find common ground. “We joke that we’re a family,” Kimberly said. “It’s a great bonding opportunity for a lot of kids.” Among other acts of leadership, Clements said, Kimberly consistently supported her teammates. She helped them with

speeches, attended their competitions and inspired them with her spirit and enthusiasm, Clements said. “Kim has been such an incredible role model,” Clements said. “She’s a huge part of the reason why the team was so successful this year.” And it’s that enthusiasm that has driven Kimberly to continue being involved in the Girl Scouts. Initially joining as a kindergartner, Kimberly has been with the same troop for the span of her school career. As part of the program, she has participated in numerous community service projects during her high school years, including helping a local

girls’ home for troubled youth. Kimberly, along with the other girls in her troop, helped mend fences, plant herb gardens and fix up the girls’ home. Kimberly has also been deeply involved in 4-H since fourth grade. Showing rabbits and dogs, she has won numerous awards, including the prestigious reserve champion award for her show rabbits. At one time, her flock of rabbits was almost 100 strong. But she eventually sold most of them to a younger 4-H member. This summer, Kimberly is competing in 4-H’s photography category, venturing into a new, nonanimal competition. Kimberly is the daughter of Meg and Kirk Shanahan. Her mom works in the Bend-La Pine Schools district office, and her dad is a cabinetmaker. She has two older sisters who live in Portland and Florida. She says having a close-knit family has had a huge impact on her ability to do well in school. “My family has supported me so much throughout the years,” said Kimberly. “I couldn’t have done anything without such a strong family unit.” In the fall, Kimberly plans to

attend the University of Oregon and study either English or speech pathology. She says she’s a little nervous about leaving home, but can’t wait to start working toward a degree. “I really like learning,” Kimberly said. “It’s personally gratifying to know things, and to be aware of everything that’s around you.” After college, she hopes to enter a career in speech pathology. “It’s hard going through life if you’re not confident in your speaking ability,” Kimberly said. “I really want to help people and make a positive impact.” As Kimberly prepares to embark on a new chapter of her life, Clements says her dedication and spirit will take her far. “She always kept her eyes on the goal,” Clements said. “She never let anything stop her from working and progressing.” Megan Kehoe can be reached at 541-383-0354 or at email@example.com.

‘Monte Carlo’ Rating: PG for brief mild language. What it’s about: A workingclass girl on vacation in Europe is mistaken for an heiress and lives it up, just a bit, while impersonating her. The kid attractor factor: Disney Channel’s Selena Gomez has her first real shot at film stardom. Good lessons/bad lessons: One person’s “seize the moment” is another’s “it’s stealing.” Violence: None Language: Very mild profanity. Sex: Not really Drugs: Everybody is of legal age to have a drink — in France. Parents’ advisory: Gomez’s pre-teen fans won’t get as much from this as those older teens in touch with the fantasy and dress-up moments. OK for 12 and older.
‘Zookeeper’ Rating: PG for some rude and suggestive humor, and language What it’s about: The animals in the care of a lonely zookeeper start talking to him, giving him romantic advice. The kid attractor factor: Talking critters and lots of them
Music Continued from E1 She begins simply enough: Each time you hop in the car, crank out a new sort of music. “If you always have the radio tuned to top 40,” she said, “you’re really limiting” the wee ears in the back seat. From what’s on your iPod to the live concerts you find nearby, make it clear that you love a broad range of music. “Children’s ears become accustomed to different sounds.” Putumayo World Music (putumayo.com) is one of Tavangar’s favorite sources for a global playlist. Keep an eye out for free concerts at museums and parks, or “like” cultural institutions on Facebook, she says, to get updates in your news feed. “And don’t make it a burden,” said Tavangar. “This isn’t homework. Do it because you love it.” One of Tavangar’s favorite ideas is to plot yourself a string of virtual globe-trotting trips. She
Good lessons/bad lessons: “Finding a perfect mate is the most important thing in the world.” Violence: Slapstick and the suggestion of animal cruelty. Language: A few instances of profanity Sex: Broad animal mating jokes, a wolf teaching a man to “mark your territory” Drugs: Alcohol is consumed. Parents’ advisory: It’s a broad low farce with talking animals that sound like Sly Stallone, Cher and Adam Sandler. OK for all ages.
‘Cars 2’ Rating: G — for gearhead What it’s about: That race car and his four-wheeled pals get mixed up in international intrigue when he signs on to a grand prix circuit. The kid attractor factor: They own the toys, they remember the first movie. Good lessons/bad lessons: “Whoever finds a friend finds a treasure.” Violence: Cars are crushed and blown up. Language: Disney clean Sex: Not a hint Drugs: Not even fuel additives Parents’ advisory: Noisier and faster-paced than the first film, this one is suitable for all ages, especially boys 5-8 years old.
A world of music Here are three websites that can locate a global concert near you: afropop.org eyefortalent.com globalrhythm.net
calls it “Continent-in-a-Weekend,” and it goes like this: Spin the globe, and see where you land; anchor your weekend with a musical performance from that continent or country. (See the above websites for ways to search for a global music concert nearby.) And before the concert, find a restaurant (or borrow a cookbook from the library) with good eats from that continent. If your kids fall head over heels for the music of a particular country or genre, Tavangar says, you’ll find ways to deepen their musical discovery. Music, after all, is never out of reach.
