1. Sherman 4-H: True Leaders in Service – National Day of Service Event

4-H clover1At every 4-H meeting, youthful members pledge “my hands to larger service” as part of the 4-H program.  4-H members are encouraged to develop and practice skills to become helpful or useful in their club/group, community, country and world.

Nationally, 4-H is launching the annual True Leaders in Service initiative, a way for 4-H members to say “thank you” to their communities, counties and states for all the support they have provided to 4-H for over 100 years.

Sherman County 4-H members will enjoy a fun National Day of Service on Saturday, April 29 from 9 a.m.-noon at Cottonwood Canyon State Park.  They will help move some gravel and rebuild a path, followed by outdoor cooking their own lunches over charcoals.

3. FCC Warning About new YES Phone Scam

The Federal Communications Commission is warning consumers about a new scam that is hooking consumers with just one word: Yes.

According to the FCC, the scam begins as soon as a person answers the phone. A recorded voice or an actual person asks: “Can you hear me?” And the consumer responds, “Yes.”

“The caller then records the consumer’s ‘Yes’ response and thus obtains a voice signature. This signature can later be used by the scammers to pretend to be the consumer and authorize fraudulent charges via telephone,” an FCC news release said.


4. Sixth Biennial Organ Crawl in The Dalles, April 23

music-notesThe sixth biennial Organ Crawl will take place Sunday, April 23. Five organists will present 20 minute programs on five historic pipe organs in The Dalles, beginning at 2 p.m. at St. Peter’s Landmark.  The “Crawl” will proceed to United Church of Christ, First Church of Christ Scientist, Zion Lutheran Church, and end at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church at 5 p.m.   


5. Either/Or Thinking

Do you know what either/or thinking is? Either/or thinking, or black and white thinking as it is sometimes called, can be a very dangerous thing, and it is basically just what it sounds like.

Either/or thinkers don’t see shades of gray. They want easy answers and they like to keep it simple. These either/or thinkers see life in terms of winners and losers, good guys and bad guys, success or failure, right and wrong. What they fail to realize is that right and wrong depend on time, place, culture and purpose, among other things.

They don’t see that no one is all good or all bad, or that success and failure depend on how you define them, as do winning and losing. Neither do they see the degrees of difference that stretch between most polar opposites, because if they did, they would need to accept the complexity of life today, cultivate deeper thinking skills as well as the ability to deal with subtle differences.

It is true that either/or thinkers don’t see these things. They build blind spots, or scotomas, to this information, because it threatens their either/or belief system. It simply doesn’t get through. Open and considered discussion becomes near impossible. You can see evidence of this every day, in the local, national and international news stories. Just check today’s newspaper or online news services.

Do you ever catch yourself doing either/or thinking? Most of us do, from time to time. It’s a dangerous habit, but it’s one you can learn to break, if you choose. Self-awareness is the first step. A strong desire to change and grow will help you open up your thinking to possibilities and keep you from getting stuck in a black and white world – a world that, in reality, doesn’t exist. ~ The Pacific Institute
