  • We check in with senior political reporter Jeff Mapes about Kate Brown’s progress in her first year as governor. We’ll also get updates on Oregon’s current legislative session.

 

 

  • Then we hear from Teresa Elliott, chief engineer at the Portland Water Bureau. She’s been working to ensure that the pipes that carry the city’s fresh water could survive an earthquake.

 

 

 

 

  • Finally, we wrap up the hour with a tribute to Summer Whisman. She was featured as part of Think Out Loud’s “At Home” series in September, and passed away on Saturday.
