HERE ARE Some things worth knowing...

St. Johns Boosters has a great new website, with an interactive map showing where their members are, and links to their sites. Very well done, and useful!

St. Johns Clutter Busters organizes neighborhood cleanups to help keep our little corner of the world fresh and clean. Help them in their efforts whether you bust clutter alone on your street or at an official event.

Frog Ferry promises to be an alternative to polluting traffic jams. They expect to begin ferry service (people, bikes - no cars) from the Cathedral Park dock to the RiverPlace dock in a little over a year from now. They are in the process of writing their federal grant application now. Their website contains a lot of information - recommended!

And do you know about Beatrice Morrow Cannady (1889 - 1974)?
"Beatrice Morrow Cannady was the most noted civil rights activist in early twentieth-century Oregon. Using her position as editor of the Advocate, Oregon's largest, and at times the only, African American newspaper, Cannady launched numerous efforts to defend the civil rights of the approximately 2,500 African Americans in the state (in 1930) and to challenge racial discrimination in its varied forms."
