We want to give a Shout Out today to the post office, UPS and Fed Ex workers and to all delivery service folks for delivering mail and bring us stuff.  Laying low and staying home is a little easier when you provide service to help keep us connected with others and the world.

The Warm Springs Holistic Health Center is located on campus next to the courthouse.  They provide physical therapy and acupuncture services by appointment.  They also have been creating and sharing videos online with topics like: Ergonomics, High Intensity Interval Training, Meditation, Treating Pain, Sleep, Strength Training and the benefits of walking.   Check out their “Warm Springs Holistic Health” YouTube Page

Warm Springs Sanitation reminds the community that the landfill no longer accepts tires.  Please do not leave tires at the dump or at the transfer stations.  Also – large household appliances should be taken to the landfill where there is a dumpster for large metal items.

KWSO accepts listener support in a few ways.  If you have a business, you can become an underwriter.  Individuals can make a cash donation, become a sustaining member or buy a KWSO T-shirt in our online store.   Please consider how you can support your local Community Radio Station at KWSO.ORG.
