Short Description: 
A cross-generational look back at 2008 and look ahead at 2009

What opportunities and challenges have the events of 2008 created for us in the coming year? Locus Focus host Barbara Bernstein is joined by two college students - Justin Ralls and Ted Sweeney, whom she recently met at a Sellwood cafe - for a cross-generational conversation about how we create social movements for change in the current climate. How are these times similar to another crossroads era, the 1960s, yet how are they significantly different? This program continues the coffehouse conversation and opens it up to KBOO's listeners.

Portland Mayor-elect Sam Adams announced last week that the world's largest wind turbine company would be relocating to Portland. But some local media said he was jumping the gun.
The Portland Tribune warned Adams to avoid making the same mistake as former Mayor Vera Katz, who announced in 2002 that Vestas would be opening a manufacturing plant in Portland. But that manufacturing plant was never built.
The Tribune quoted Vestas spokesman Roby Roberts as saying hewas glad the mayor was excited, but the project was still being negotiated.
When Roberts spoke to KBOO's Jenka Soderberg today, however, he sounded optimistic about the plan.
