Kathyrn Southwick-Hess worked to protect schoolchildren and was surprised when Cathy offered to help. "Cathy has an open heart, she has a kind heart. She's someone I'm very proud to call friend.
Agriculture is the life blood of the Fifth District, where wheat, row crops, grapes, potatoes and fruit feeds the world and creates thousands of jobs.

Cole, Grace, Bryn, Brian, and I had an amazing time at the Mobius Science Center grand opening today in Spokane! The science center combined fun and learning in an interactive environment. It is great to have this in Spokane that increases access to education and let's parents and kids have fun together.
