Kirstie Hettinga

     Kirstie is a Righetti High School graduate and talked to us today about supporting local newspapers. Without the local newspapers there is no Watch Dog, thus no accountability. She suggested how we can support our local papers: Subscribe, Advertise & Donate.

     Kirstie joined the faculty at California Lutheran University as an assistant professor of communication in 2013. Kirstie earned tenure and was promoted to associate professor in 2019.
     Kirstie earned her doctorate in mass communication from The Pennsylvania State University's College of Communications. Her bachelor's and master's were both earned at California State University, Fresno. Kirstie's undergraduate degree is in mass communication-print journalism and theatre arts and her master's degree is in mass communications.

Three men are arrested and sentenced to death by firing squad, one by one.
     While they wait to be executed they come up with a plan. Right before they are to be shot, each one will yell that some natural disaster or emergency is happening to distract the soldiers and they would be able to escape.
     The first man hears the captain counting down to 0, he yells “TORNADO!” As the soldiers duck for cover, he scales the wall of the prison and escapes to freedom.
     The second man hears the captain counting down to 0, he yells “EARTHQUAKE!” As the soldiers duck for cover, he scales the wall of the prison and escapes to freedom.
     The last man hears the captain counting down to 0, he yells “FIRE!”
