The Save Our Streets film clip on SUWS, a wilderness program in Idaho, 888-879-7897, is now available on the Woodbury Reports home page, http://woodbury.com. “Both audio and video are becoming important forces in getting one`s message out,” says Bob Kirkpatrick, Woodbury Report`s Network Administrator. “We`re moving slowly, offering an audio snippet on the first page, and adding full-motion video and full stereo sound to a multimedia page. We hope that people will click on the mail buttons and tell us what they think --and what they`d like to see and hear.” Reports Online is only starting with the SUWS video, and has a number of informational videos slated for broadcast to “probe the best ways to get information distributed to the people needing it. 

The DeSisto School, 413-298-3776, in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, will be presenting “Dinner Theatre At The Mansion” in July and August of 1997. Part of “The Berkshires’ original Dinner Theatre”, now in its 11th year, the July presentation is EUBIE!, a “Broadway Revue of the Music of the Incomparable Eubie Blake.” The August presentation consists of A DAY IN HOLLYWOOD/A NIGHT IN THE UKRAINE, a “Tony Award Winning Musical Showcasing the Best of Hollywood!” 

DEVEREUX GLENHOLME  A “CHARACTER COUNTS!” SCHOOL Devereux Glenholme, 860-868-7377, in Washington, Connecticut, describes themselves as a Character Counts! School. They “encourage children to embrace the ‘Six Pillars of Character’:” The pillars are Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship. “This provides a foundation as they struggle with confusing and overwhelming frustrations, feelings and anger.” 

Royal Haven, a home for girls outside Sisters, Oregon, 541-549-4024, reports in late June they have 15 girls going to summer school to “get ahead or catch up on their courses.” They are also “giving an Equine course as a required elective...”

Steve Kramer, founder of Kids Inc. in Spokane, Washington, 509-448-2290, received Spokesman-Review coverage on June 8, 1997. Columnist Doug Clark wrote “Surrogate dad`s on a mission to do the right thing” in a favorable article entitled “The tough love at Kids Inc. Paying dividends.” Clark points out that Kids Inc. “Isn’t licensed through any state agency. Kramer relies on a 1995 law allowing neighbors and friends to privately care for a child on a 24-hour basis.” The State of Washington is setting up to challenge Kramer’s interpretation. But in discussing the results he saw among the boys at Kids Inc., Clark says “But if Josh is an example, Kramer’s methods are worth the cost.”
