A longtime broadcaster and original Seattle Seahawk, Steve Raible has been a fixture in the Pacific Northwest for almost half a century. He was the trusted face and voice of KIRO-7 News for almost thirty years.  And after retiring in 2020, the station named its news broadcast facility "The Steve Raible Studio".  Raible continues to be the "Voice of the Seahawks" as the team's radio play-by-play announcer, a job he's held since 2004. He filled the role of color analyst for 22 years before that.  Raible has called the biggest games in franchise history, including the team's Super Bowl 48 Championship over the Denver Broncos.

NCESD, with Cari Horning
ZOOM video recording (available for a short time)
(includes announcements)

Cari was introduced by her sponsor Rachel Evey of the Program Committee.

The importance (and steps) of getting our students informed, credentialed, and prepared for careers, locally & beyond. Career Connected Learning, at its core, is connecting the students of NCW to local careers and the skills necessary to attain and flourish in those careers and our communities.

Cari is thrilled to introduce local students to the career opportunities in the region and leading tours with industry partners.  She told stories of various experiences with students and guest speakers.  She explained the intricate and complex Continuum Framework, which consists of Career Awareness, Preparation, Exploration, and Skills Training.   She also explained the partnership with WASAC, the Washington Student Achievement Council , a cabinet-level state agency working to raise educational attainment through strategic engagement, program management, and partnerships.   NCESD also arranges career expo events to introduce students to various fields of work.

Information on financial aid is available via the QR code (at right), and clarification was provided by an animated Youtube video.  See some of her images below.

About Cari.  Cari is married to her high school sweetheart since 1991, Greg.  They raised two daughters, Kendall & Piper on the family farm. Kendall graduated in 2021 from Walla Walla Community College with her Bachelor’s of Applied Science in Agriculture and Piper is a Junior at San Diego State University studying Environmental Sciences. 

A lifelong love of athletics led to her initial career, working for Reebok & Nike for the better part of 15 years.  While her career has bobbed and weaved with the circumstances of life, she chose to stay home for 15 years to see their oldest daughter through the medical needs accompanying being born with two genetic conditions.  She found herself back in in the workforce in 2018 as the NCESD Career Connected Learning Specialist for Grant & Adams County.


Dear AppleSauce:   What is the strangest thing in your refrigerator?
        --  Enquiring Ernie
Dear Ernie,
Either three-month-old kale or my ex’s pinky toe. Not sure which is grosser.
Dear Applesauce:   Why do banks charge money for insufficient funds, even though they know there isn’t any money?
           --  Overdrawn in Orondo
Dear Overdrawn,
Because bankers are in the business of making loans and charging interest (or is usury the correct term, Mr. Kintner?).   And what is interest, but made up money on money you don’t have that you had to borrow from smiling Mike. So it doesn’t really matter if there is real money in the account or not. You owe it and Mike is only too happy to send Uncle Vinnie out to collect it.   Dear Applesauce’s advice, forget the bank altogether and bury your money in the backyard! Just don’t go digging in DA’s backyard, you won’t like what you find (Uncle Vinnie isn’t the only one who knows how to take care of business! Capice?)
