Harley Hess and Sam Morris
In December of 2014 I had the honor of recording a conversation between two friends. Harley Hess is a veteran of WWII currently living at Carriage Place, an assisted living facility in Prineville. Harley’s friend, Sam Morris, is a veteran of the Vietnam War, also lives in Prineville, and serves as Harley’s guardian angel. While the bulk of their conversation centers on Harley’s incredible life, both men share a common bond – they both flew airplanes during their service days…and continued to fly in their post-war years. Their obvious friendship tugged on my heart strings…as I’m sure it will yours. So let’s listen to their conversation. Total running time: 30:50

Ever Wonder What It's Like?Somehow the message that the economy was improving never made it to the homeless population in Crook County. Numbers are increasing and services can't keep up with the need. Bill talks with two people in Prineville Oregon about how they came to be homeless, what it's like to live on the street, what challenges they have on a daily basis, and what resources they have tapped to help them get out of the cycle of homelessness, drug addiction, and jail. Listen to this podcast now (8:41 total time) and learn what it's like to be homeless.
