High Five News

Tired of gloom and doom news stories? Try this website.


I'm proud to be part of this effort, the brainchild of a man I met on a Road Scholar vacation last fall. From our first conversation, when he described how he was constructing this site to be a place where candidates for political office could easily find "what's working" stories, I knew I'd get involved. And now that I am involved, I plan to continue.

If you'd like to join me, let me know here via a comment or contact me offline; I'll gladly facilitate the process. My current task is to read "what's working" news stories and pare each down to three easy-to-digest pieces - a one sentence summary of the story, one or more benefits covered in the story, and a brief statement about the way the story connects to a critical issue facing the U.S. or the world.

Instead of hearing more platitudes and promises, wouldn't you prefer politicians begin speaking of progress being made on many of the critical issues we face? High Five News is aimed at being an easy-to-access FREE forum for exactly that purpose. I hope you'll consider joining me.   


  1. Slid over to the web site...Glen Kirschner's video well worth a viewing. Thanks Pat, for the excellent new and worthy "rabbit hole" to visit!

    1. Steve; Glad you found that video worth looking at. Thanks for the comment and ... sorry about the rabbit hole!

  2. No need to apologize but if I wish to correct a minor grammatical error on my part. I wrote "slid" when I should have used "slud" instead. Thank you Dizzy Dean.
