Discussion at Brookings Café: Vaccinations – The Real Story

Discussion at Brookings Café is a potpourri of topics around a table where anybody can join in the discussion. This show represents a place where the community of Brookings and the surrounding areas can discuss what concerns us as coastal residents.

In U. S. history over 300 million people died from smallpox, a disease that is virtually wiped out today because of the smallpox vaccine. But despite the obvious good that has come from vaccines, there is a growing trend of people who refuse vaccinations. Now we have an outbreak of measles which is another potential killer. Are we as a nation, as a world being put at risk because of people who choose not to vaccinate? That’s the discussion at Brookings Café, on KCIW.

Discussion at Brookings Café: A New Look at Physical Fitness

Discussion at Brookings Café is a potpourri of topics around a table where anybody can join in the discussion. This show represents a place where the community of Brookings and the surrounding areas can discuss what concerns us as coastal residents.

Hosts Dan Sherman and Ray Gary were pleasantly surprised talking about physical fitness with Ken Dobberpuhl, who teaches fitness at the Southwestern Oregon Community College. Not your usual drill sergeant style approach, but rather Ken specializes in fitness for people who are in their later years. It’s described as a practical approach rather than a given set program, recognizing the differing needs of different people. And as a bonus, they discuss how Ken Dobberpuhl is going to put together a regular show for KCIW. KCIW looks forward to his new program.
