Coming up today on Portland's Afternoon News, we'll hear from an expert at OHSU Doernbecher Children's Hospital, who helps kids cope with bullying. Dr. Ajit Jetmalani will explain the difference between teasing and bullying (it can be a very fine line) and talk specifically about cyber bullying and how it's different from the more traditional forms.
He has a lot to say about the topic, so he'll also be on The OHSU Effect tomorrow morning at 8:00 here on KXL. I hope you'll tune in.
I was born the same year as the Six Day War in 1967. I've never
known there to be long lasting peace in the Mideast. I've never been to Israel
and I've never been anywhere near that part of the world, until now. I'm very
excited and nervous to go.
My goal is to talk to teachers, vendors,
lawmakers, historians, Palestinians, even comedians. There's unrest in
neighboring Syria and Egypt which could make things interesting. Not to
mention, Iran testing missiles this week.
Here's where you come in. What do you want to know? Please post on this blog or on Facebook and I'll do my best to get the answers you are looking for.
Happy New Year!
To avoid drunk driving, or other drivers who might be drunk, you can always take public transit. TriMet buses and MAX trains will be free on Saturday night, starting at 8:00. MAX will also run later than normal. In fact, the last yellow line train will leave the Expo Center station at 3:42 a.m.
And of course there are plenty of taxi services in the Rose City, but because New Years Eve is a busy night, it's recommended that you make a reservation in advance.
However you celebrate, be safe, have fun and Happy New Year from KXL!
I think it's very apropos that this discovery was made during the holidays. And it shows that it is never too late to apologize or make up or reach out to loved ones and friends who you have fallen out of touch with. I can't imagine living for more than 30 years and having someone think I was dead! What I took away from this story is that there is nothing more important than family...and whatever disagreements you might have with them...it's best to forgive and forget.

Maybe it's because I finally finished my Christmas shopping,
but I've had a chance to really reflect on what we have going here at FM News
101 KXL. It's been a year of a lot of transitions. We've moved from the
AM to the FM dial. We've launched a brand new Web site.
We've upped our commitment to news. Sadly, we had to saygoodbye to Barbara
Voight who passed away in May from Melanoma. We've added new faces like
Gregg Hersholt, Pat Boyle, Rosemary Reynolds, and Steve Herman.
We've kept some fantastic KXL news veterans who are so valuable to
Behind the scenes, the staff works so hard each day to give you news that you need to know and can't get anywhere else. We've had passionate discussions (disagreements?) and conversations at our news meeting to make sure we handle things fairly and thoroughly. We hope you've noticed. We also plan to do much more in 2012 and would love to have you come along with us. Here's to a fantastic KXL news staff....and here's to you and yours this holiday season. There really is something special about Christmas.
