New season starts in January. The complete set of workshops will be
presented at Hillsboro Public Library starting in February!  Keep an eye out
for details.


My favorite recent testimonial is from Mike Donahue, former Anchor on our
local CBS news station [6 in PDX]. He was at my Misinformation workshop in
Newberg Wednesday night:


"Thanks, Donna. Your workshop was very informative. I especially appreciated
the websites you included to fact check claims and ads.
Your examples were current and excellent. I will recommend your class to all
my journalism friends."
