    Hello there,

    My name is Heather Langhorst. I’ve just moved to Portland a couple of weeks ago. I’m a single Mom of two little ones with a crazy, busy political job. We are on SE Steele St. And we need a few things, mostly community, good friends, a good baby sitter and some suggestions for a pediatrician. We have fallen in love with living here and are deeply committed to helping in whatever way we can If anyone has suggestions, feel free to email back or post a reply: hriley24@gmail.com.

  9. Jeff!

    I just found your blog!

    I am currently in the final stages of preparing to open a new gallery/community arts space in the Foster Row building! Thank you for the lovely post over the holidays.

    I would be very interested in chatting with you about our project, our Valentine’s day grand opening, and all we have planned for this coming year!

    Thank you for your interest and concern for our neighborhood. I hope that Wolf & Rabbit Emporium will be a welcome addition to the family!

    Creatively Yours,
    Clif Chandler

    Hi I’m a student at PSU and we are looking for any green business in the Foster Green Ecodistrict. Do you know of any?

    Hi! I’m kind of a safety/preparedness freak. Have you considered getting a group of neighbors together to get ourselves prepared for the next big earthquake? I’d be really interested. And honestly, we will really have to rely on each other for help in the hours, days and weeks after a large quake.

    There is some great information here: http://www.preporegon.org/get_prepared_with_your_neighbors

    Maybe this blog could facilitate getting the conversation started?! Just a though!

      I just moved to the Foster-Powell neighborhood and have been doing some research on the neighborhood and area. Saw your post and thought I’d drop you a reply and see if you were able to get a group together for earthquake preparedness, as I am also into and looking to join/start a group on that subject.

      Let me know either way.

    Hi, Brandon.

    Welcome to FoPo! I haven’t done much of anything in regards to putting together a neighborhood group for earthquake preparedness. I’m still interested but honestly I just don’t have a lot of extra time on my hands. I’m more than happy to share my knowledge and resources I’ve found that have helped me prepare my family but that might be the extent at this time.

    I’ll actually be going through our kits in the next several weeks to change our expired food and supplies. If you’re interested, I’m more than happy to host an ‘open house’ of sorts to show you and others what I have in my kit.

    What do you think? Would that be helpful?

    Thanks for doing this!

  14. Hi Jeff!
    I just ran across the article about me and my Tango Berretín Mural. Nice surprise. I was checking to see if my website was back up by looking at Google and found the fosterpowell blog!

    I hope I can get my site up again soon!

    I’m wanting to copy and paste a link to the excellent article you published.

    I hope all is well with you.

    Best Regards,

    The gun room on foster put up a sign that matches the euro classic furniture sign, it seems they are joining in on the fight against the streetscape.

    Also the day theater went up for sale

    Just a heads up on some important news in the neighborhood.

    Hi FoPo~
    I just discovered your website. This is so awesome what you guys are doing. I moved into this area last summer by the little store next to the post office. I used to come here 25 years ago to my uncle’s place right next to the burger king that is being remodeled. However, lately I haven’t had chance to meet too many people outside of work. Now that I know there are group of people actively working to bring the community together I will try to contribute as much as I can for the community. Hope to meet you guys in the future. Thank you so much for the useful news and info on the website. I will try checking the website daily. =)

    I love your blog and so sad you won’t be posting anymore. I hope you come out of retirement. Perhaps just a monthly post?
