Slam the words "share" and "arrow" together, and you end up with a new term: sharrow. Sharrows are roadway markings meant to keep the people in motor vehicles and bicycles apart. And Redding is celebrating its very first sharrow; you'll hear the details.
Our weekly ritual is renewed, as we throw a pair of topics on the table--in theory, unrelated--and open up the phone lines and the email box to gather your take on either or both of the issues. It's VENTSday on The Jefferson Exchange, and you participate by calling 1-800-838-3760 or 541-552-6782 or emailing JX@jeffnet.org. THIS WEEK, give us your thoughts on: 1) Is the big storm a sign to talk about global warming again--especially in the political campaigns? 2) Animal, vegetable, or political: what's the scariest Halloween costume you can think of?
