Last Free Park Day For 2018

A Brief History It takes an Act of Congress to establish a new National Park these days! I am having a little fun at our government’s expense, but actually it is true that Congress must approve any new National Park. This wasn’t always the case, in fact when Yellowstone became the first National Park in 1872 there was no designated process and no assigned government agency to oversee t…

Strength In Community From Strength In Commitment

Nice To Meet You, Neighbor It's hard to believe that another year is coming to a close. Yes, we have a couple months left in 2018 but we are into the tail end of the fall foliage here in Oregon, and that means the whirlwind of the holiday season will be upon us. Halloween is the opening act to two months of traditions that center on spending time with family and giving gifts to our loved ones. Fa…

Tailgate Season

Ready, Set, Tailgate! The last days of summer have given way to cooling temperatures, the days are getting shorter, and the kids are back in school. September 22 marks the fall equinox, also known as the first day of fall. While I do lament the inevitable end of summer, I appreciate having four distinct seasons here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and fall may be my favorite. Tradition Fall is…

Keep your writing professional

I hear it in interactions between us, and I particularly see it in emails that are shared with me.

Put in the preparation to do your best

Bobby Knight, the legendary college basketball coach, has a quote that I have always liked, “everyone has the will to win, not everyone has the will to prepare to win”. This is a quote that you can apply to any endeavor in your life, be it an athletic competition, a job interview, mastering a musical instrument, a speaking engagement, a test, a job. Unless you are really really gifted,…

The need to accept risk as a part of everyday life

Dear Guaranty Team: As you may know, one of my favorite activities is road cycling. I can’t tell you how good it feels to be riding outside on a good day over a good road with good friends. A few weeks ago, one of my friends and cycling companions was involved in a terrible cycle accident, where he broke a bone in his neck, 4 ribs, his collarbone, collapsed a lung and suffered a concu…
