Oak Leaf has been a stable home for people who can’t afford to live anywhere else.
- We talk to Mike Marshman, Portland’s new chief of police. He was appointed Monday after the former chief said he would retire following an off-duty accidental shooting, which is still under investigation.
- Stevie Ray Daniels, a resident of the Oak Leaf mobile home park, tells us about her and her neighbors’ effort to purchase the park from its current owner.
- Forty-two million Americans owe $1.3 trillion in student debt. We hear the story of Jackie Krowen, a Portland nurse who wishes she hadn’t, as she put it, ruined her life with school. We also talk to Lance Williams, a reporter whose new story looks into the effects of student loan debt.
- We asked our listeners for stories from people who had just bought a gun for the first time. Today we hear from a woman who lives in North Portland and just bought a gun for self-protection. If you have a story you’d like to share, leave us a voicemail message 503-293-1983
