Press Talk Theres always something going on

first_imgLou Brancaccio is The Columbian’s editor emeritus. His column of personal opinion appears the first Saturday of every month. Reach him at [email protected] Sometimes, you can’t turn around without finding the usual suspects helping our community in so many ways.Take Vancouver Councilor Anne McEnerny-Ogle.One day, she’s introducing a noon concert at Esther Short Park, the next day, she’s baking pies for visiting law enforcement officers and — yep— that was Anne scrubbing clean a mural in the city.Oh, and those pies? They’re illegal in 14 states. Too dang addictive.But this isn’t a column about Anne.

Yep, that’s chump change compared with so many others.last_img read more
