The next edition of Our Town on Coast Radio is coming Wednesday, October 7th and will feature interviews with former KEZI 9 Anchor Rick Dancer. He covered the 1998 shooting at Thurston High School that left two students dead. Along the way, Dancer developed a close relationship with the parents of one student who was shot in the head and wasn't expected to survive. Teresa Miltonberger left the hospital two months after the May 21st attack. Her parents, Bill and Loretta Miltonberger grew up in Florence and have since returned home. Bill Miltonberger will also be in the studio.
Other segments of the October Our Town include details on the 3 1/2 year Siuslaw River Bridge renovation project; the economic development effort known as "RAIN"; and a light-hearted look at life with Eugene author Bob Welch.
