Life in the Valley of Riches

Awhile back we made the decision to downsize our office. It took a bit to find the best space and we landed at 116 N. Redwood, the former rug shop between Carlos Restaurante and the Lions Clubhouse.
We came to the conclusion that we were spending money on space we didn’t need. The new space is drastically smaller so Laura has moved her I.V. Wellness Resources desk to 315 Caves Hwy. Suite C next to KXCJ Community Radio.
The weather has made moving our signage challenging, but we hope to have it up by the end of the week.
We will be sharing the space with Amy Lusson of Wild Herb Apothecary, who hopes to have her retail operation up and running in a few weeks.
That aside, how about them Cougs! For the first time in history our school has a state championship in a sport. And just as inspiring as the individual and team accolades on the mat, the team garnered praise from around the state by their willingness to help stranded Portland drivers during the storm that hit while the boys were traveling to the tournament.
Congratulations to the teammates, coaches and families that made this historic event possible. Thank you all for making the Valley proud.
While I’m at it, have you noticed the new banners up around downtown? Main Street Cave Junction volunteers have a few prototypes up on the light poles and they will be replacing all of the banners throughout town.
I will end this by asking you to read the Poet’s Portion this week. Its cold, wet and snowy and we have people on the streets while we have empty churches. Things that make you go hmm.
We look forward to seeing you in our new digs. Thank you for picking up this week’s paper. Enjoy! ~ djm
