Knope of the Week
Cate Schneider, Lake Oswego city recorder, is the runaway winner of this week’s Knope of the Week. Her persistence and hard work resulted in a first class event with the Portland Trail Blazers. Not only did she follow through in coordinating the event but she did so while taking on new job responsibilities in Lake Oswego. Cate’s work in the last couple of months has been influential in continuing the positive momentum of ELGL. It also allowed us the unique opportunity to marvel at the size of Greg Oden’s shoes. Thank you Cate!

As hard as Seattleites scrunched up over their coffee and Jonathan Raban novels, they couldn’t prevent Washington, D.C.’s legion of wonks from stealing the title of 2011’s Most Literate City in America.
The list takes into account many factors like management credibility, camaraderie, compensation and benefits, but what may just send you running to update your résumé are the eye-popping perks that America’s most generous companies dole out to their employees.
