Somewhere the Sun Rises

Good Morning and Welcome to you weekend!

Thanks for tuning in to InterTribal here at WRIR. Your presence is most appreciated. Here we are in October. The children have returned to school now almost an entire month, rhythms have been established and the summer heat has gone; replaced by the autumn.

As a city, we have hosted people from around the world for the UCI World Championships, and now we handle the effects of Joaquin. Flooding and downed powerlines or tree limbs are a real concern. We have gone from celebrating to sheltering. Stay safe.

 Walk in Peace,

Tall Feathers
