Prostitution and the "Wild West"

Mar 20, 2017

Historian Jan Mackell Collins has written several books plus literally thousands of articles on the history of the West, with a special attention for the women and prostitutes that helped shape the modern America we know.

In books like  “The Wild Women of Prescott Arizona,” and “The Lost Ghost Towns of Teller County (Colorado),”  Jan MacKell Collins busts the technicolor movie image of the loud and proud town prostitute bustling about town saloons. Most of these women had a difficult job that was dangerous and stigmatized.


'ESPN Women's Hoops' tweeted a link to a Ferndale High School girls basketball video.  After participating in this year Handclap Hoopla Challenge, the team's coaching staff says they plan to to make the hype video an annual tradition.

Portland Police Chief Mike Marshman has been placed on paid administrative leave, the mayor's office said late Friday.

Adjutant Lt. Michael Leasure — who worked in the administration branch alongside Marshman, according to the bureau's website — was also placed on paid leave.

Both were reassigned to the bureau's Personnel Division, pending the results of an investigation by the Independent Police Review.

An oil-by-rail terminal in Vancouver is off the table. The city approved a plan by the company NuStar that would allow it to ship and store ethanol, under the condition that it drop its proposal to handle crude oil.

Two years ago, NuStar proposed a plan to handle 22,000 barrels of oil a day. But the company wanted the city of Vancouver to allow it without doing an environmental impact statement. After the city refused, NuStar switched gears — deciding to move forward with a plan to store and export ethanol instead.

The negotiator-in-chief couldn't seal the deal.

President Trump, the former businessman who has never been shy about touting his negotiating skills, has for several weeks been involved in a high-profile negotiation and persuasion effort with members of his own party in an effort to pass the American Health Care Act.

That effort failed.

But this is how Trump sold himself.

After spending hours in her office logging data, Dora Raymaker will occasionally run around the block six times as a stress reliever. That ability to drop her work and spend time unwinding is a testament to the flexibility of working in a high-level professional setting, she said. It’s also a privilege she has as a person falling on the autism spectrum working a specialized job that many others with autism don’t experience.
