a) Two consecutive appearances of the sun are forecast for Sunday and Monday.
b) The Carefree Commuter Challenge begins on July 1st!
As you may recall, the sun is a distant star which is responsible for life on planet earth. It is purported to appear periodically during the month of June in Portland.
The Carefree Commuter Challenge is a free, month-long event that encourages commuters in the tri-county area to join their co-workers in switching drive-alone commute trips to carpooling, walking, transit, biking and telecommuting.
For participating, you are eligible to win some fantastic prizes, including weekends at bed and breakfasts, wine country tours and a free bicycle!
It's a decent chance that your company is already participating. Again, it's free, all an employer needs is an employee transportation coordinator to send out a few emails and rally your colleagues.
