John Laurie Competes

One of the kids in da’ hood is featured in today’s Oregonian.  John Laurie, northeast resident, “…is one of nine regional champions to compete in the Oregon Poetry Out Loud competition Saturday, March 31 at Willamette University in Salem. All nine students have won school and regional contests earlier this year.”

John is 17 and is as good looking as his father, Craig, who I’ve known for years walking our dogs at Grant High Park.  His dog Suzie, loves to chase a tennis ball in all kinds of weather and never tires.

Everything, I’ve seen and heard about John Laurie since he was ten or younger, is that he’s a great young man and really, anyone who writes poetry can’t be bad. Congratulations, I wish you well in the competition and in all the years ahead.
