Tigard High School Tigerettes Win National Championship!

The Tigard Times newspaper recently reported on this amazing feat - here's an excerpt from Geoff Pursinger's story:

More than 40 girls from Tigard’s Tigerette dance team competing in the United Spirit Association Dance Nationals in Anaheim, Calif., last week, where she and the rest of the team brought home a national championship.
The Tigerettes are the first dance team in Oregon to win a national championship, according to the school’s head coach Linda Sheron. who has coached the Tigerettes dance team for 35 years.
The school took home first place in the “large dance/pom” category, where dancers use pom-poms as part of their routine. The school also brought home two second-place awards in the Open Large Lyrical and Open Large Dance categories.

TriMet Announces Route Change for Line 78

Starting Sunday, April 20, permanent route change starts for Line 78-Beaverton/Lake Oswego

For trips to Beaverton Transit Center, Line 78-Beaverton/Lake Oswego will move from SW Hampton to SW Beveland between SW 68th and SW 72nd.

Due to new retail construction, the intersection at SW 72nd and Hampton has been changed, preventing buses from turning left from SW Hampton onto SW 72nd. Buses traveling to Beaverton Transit Center will permanently move to SW Beveland. For trips to Lake Oswego Transit Center, buses will remain on SW Hampton.

The stop on SW Hampton at 69th (Stop ID 2493) will close and a new stop will be installed on SW Beveland, near 69th (new Stop ID to come soon). Some on-street parking on SW Beveland at 68th and 69th will need to be removed to allow buses to turn safely onto SW Beveland and to accommodate the new bus stop.

With this route change, SW Beveland residents and businesses will see buses traveling on their street every day, about once every thirty minutes between 6 a.m. and 11:30 p.m.
