Panama is for Everyone!

With Gale Frank

Panama may be small, but it is a diverse nation packed with fascinating and often unexpected places. Gale will be talking about a variety of wonderful travel destinations, from sparkling Panama City and its high-rises, to coffee plantations and the tropical San Blas islands, governed by the native, traditionally dressed Kuna population.

Joan Gale Frank, who goes by her middle name Gale, is a scriptwriter and content creator for television, radio and TV commercials, documentaries, websites, blogs and books. She is the author of Instant Guts!, which is about how to take intelligent risks in business and creativity, and a second book called, Home Seller’s Blues, which is about overcoming the trauma of selling a home and moving. Currently she is writing a sci-fi comedy novel about interstellar space travel, and she edits other author’s books.

Gale’s favorite thing to do, besides eating chocolate croissants at a bakery while reading a good novel, is to travel the world. She’s been to 48 countries and her favorite trips included a one-month camping safari across Africa, a recent trip to Iceland where she swam in their thermal steamy waters, a trip to the bottom of South America, where she cruised the Beagle Channel, and volunteer trips she’s taken to India and the Amazon, working alongside the local population.  Gale is also a Panamanian resident and landowner.

History of Portland Transportation

With Scott Cohen, Portland Bureau of Transportation

 

 

 

This presentation will focus on the connection between the Portland region’s growth and the transportation projects that shaped its development. This presentation was originally developed by former head traffic engineer of the City of Portland, Steve Dotterer. Through years of planning and public outreach, Mr. Dotterer learned the value of understanding how Portland developed and the role transportation played. Dotterer’s research includes material from the Oregon Historical Society and the City of Portland archives.

Scott Cohen is a transportation planner at the Portland Bureau of Transportation who earned his Master’s degree in American History at Portland State University in 2005.  Scott currently works in PBOT’s Active Transportation division that plans, builds, and educates about the city’s bicycle, pedestrian, and transit networks.
