Could It Happen Here?

Could a Sandy Hook or Clackamas Mall incident happen here?

This 10-minute radio show (heard 8/27/13 on KPOV 88.9 FM Bend OR) was originally recorded in Jan 2013 shortly after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. Mayor Roppe, Chief of Police Bush, and Sheriff Hensley joined me for a round table discussion about the possibility of a similar incident happening in Crook County Oregon. The full interview is 50-minutes and can be heard at…-here.html .

Prepper Up

Survive Anything

Prepper Up is a new store in downtown Prineville that specializes in general sporting goods and survival gear. As the name implies the owners, Cynthia & Ray Graves, want people to be prepared for anything - natural disasters, economic collapse, even a tyrannical government. Listen to this fascinating 10-minute conversation and learn how the term "Survivalist" has morphed into the "Prepper" movement - and why this new store is doing so well in the county with the second highest unemployment in the state. (This show was first broadcast this morning on The Point - KPOV 88.9 FM's daily news show.)
