Darrell Sofield’s wife, Ruth, is pregnant with a girl (their first)! She’s due in February. Darrell loves living, working, running, biking, and skiing in northwest Washington. He’s excited to welcome Emma Spenner Norman back to Bellingham, Wash. “She’s now the chair of the native environmental science department at Northwest Indian College and a wonderful mother of two boys,” Darrell reports. * Daniel Polk helped organize a daylong symposium focused on ending homelessness in San Francisco. The event took place at Twitter HQ and included business, political, and civic leaders. * James Colligan, Tyler Rainey, and Chris Fossella went on a mini vacation to visit Matt Gaudet in Minneapolis and were able to catch up, make some new memories, and witness a “thrilling” Dallas Cowboys victory over the Minnesota Vikings at the new U.S. Bank Stadium. James is the owner of BookVIP, a travel agency for discounted vacation packages. * This is all the news I received for this column. I hope to hear from more of you next time. Drop a note anytime!
