Thanksgiving trash? I’ve heard that before
Christmas has many songs and carols that begin playing earlier every year it seems, but Thanksgiving has hardly any musical offerings. One of the very few Thanksgiving songs is Arlo Guthrie’s Alice’s Restaurant Massacree. And by Guthrie’s own admission, it isn’t really about Thanksgiving at all. It’s a long diatribe against absurdity, stupidity, with a passing swipe at the draft and the Vietnam War. The events described in the song (cold, hard facts, actually) really happened but the timing of some of the events were during the Thanksgiving holidays, setting the stage for the song’s association with Turkey day.

Expert advice: Small financial steps today protect tomorrow
In recent weeks, I’ve seen how changes in inflation and interest rates are hitting the budgets of the families and people we meet and have come to know. Eugene saw an increase of 6% on the prices of goods and services between October 2020 and October 2021. Nationally, house prices increased by 18.5% between August 2020 and August 2021, and the low interest rates we’ve grown accustomed to are beginning to creep back up.
