Woodbury Reports Inc. has just been notified it was “selected as one of the TEN BEST on the Internet in the category of ALTERNATIVE SERVICES.” The award was granted by the Consortium for Internet Qualities, “an independent company whose purpose is to evaluate Internet web sites in specific categories, and to recognize those which rise considerably above the mainstream. Sites are rated on the informative qualities of their presentation, art, technological skill, and interpersonal communications and content. Your site was selected because it received a score in each of these areas that was greater than 95 out of the possible 100 points. We thank and congratulate you for your vision, skill and taste.” The major credit, of course, goes to Webmaster Bob Kirkpatrick of Spokane who has the responsibility of developing and administering the Internet site for Woodbury Reports Online. 

Twila Stephenson and Richard Armstrong have traded accusatory lawsuits as part of their termination of a business and personal relationship involving Boundarylines Inc. in North Idaho.

Calls by Woodbury Reports to inquire if Keating was planning to update the story have not been returned as of February 5th. Anyone wanting more details can call Stephenson and/or Armstrong.

Sue Isaacson, Educational Director for NorthStar Center in Bend, Oregon, 541-385-6754, announced “that beginning February 1997, students can receive college credit for courses and work completed at NorthStar. Credits, awarded through Central Oregon Community College, will be fully transferable to most colleges and universities throughout the United States and will assist in satisfying several general education requirements at most institutions of higher learning. Classes will be taught on the NorthStar campus in small class sizes which will include each student’s peer group. The intimate size, combined with the support of the peer group, will allow students to experience post secondary courses in a safe, non-threatening atmosphere.” Initial course offerings include: “Health and Fitness For Life,” “Small Group Communication,” “Career Exploration” and “Drawing I.”
