Kathy Eaton is originally from the East Coast but she has lived in Northeast Portland for almost 20 years. In 2009, she began writing a monthly column in the voice of a standard Boxer named Hank for The Hollywood Star News, chronicling their visits to local businesses and championing support for all animals. After Hollywood Hank passed away in January 2013, Kathy transitioned to writing feature articles for the Star on a variety of topics that interest her: the arts, environment, women’s issues and animal health. Showcasing interesting people and sharing their endeavors with readers became the common thread of her articles.
In this issue, the Star launches Kathy’s column: Out and About in North/Northeast Portland which focuses on neighborhoods. Kicking off with the Kenton Neighborhood, Kathy explores the neighborhood’s history, culture, current issues and people who live and work there.
