You Heard It First...

... on "Straight Talk" Saturday night.
Oregon Governor Ted Kulongoski gave us an in-depth preview of the State of The State address he would give to the Oregon Legislature on Monday.
You heard him ask, "If not now, when?" When is the right time to invest in the state's infrastructure? When is the right time to invest in green energy, and when is the right time to fund children's health care and education?
You may disagree with the Governor, but on "Straight Talk" you had the chance to hear him outline his reasons for calling for tax hikes and fee increases to pay for his proposals.

Now, our "Straight Talk" staff is discussing our upcoming show. We know it will have something to do with Barack Obama's inauguration next Tuesday, and what his Presidency means for Oregon and Oregon's black citizens.
Stay tuned for more on that.
Until then, let's keep talking and join us for "Straight Talk" Saturday night at 7pm on KGW and 8:30pm on Northwest Cable Newschannel 49.
