We can talk about Ferguson

Analyzing responses and fallacies of the last week
Recently some of my white, male friends have told me that because I am black they have had a difficult time talking with me about the Ferguson riots. Here are some frequent comments I hear, along with my responses.

Maine Tool Library to open in Bayside

Free home goods
The Maine Tool Library wants to be Portland’s communal tool shed; a place where hobbyists, beginners, and pros can come to trade skills and help skirt the steep hardware costs of many home and garden projects.

Brown case isn't so black-and-white

Diverse City
One minute, Michael Brown was walking to his grandmother’s house in Ferguson, Missouri, on Aug 9. The next minute, he was dead—another young black man sent to his grave violently before he could even really live his life.

Telling it like it is

Critical reviews of Portland arts by Telling Room students
Two weeks ago, the Telling Room hosted Review Camp, a week-long forum where greater Portland students (aged 10-14) learned to write critically about arts and cultural activities in the area, training their sights on a music video by indie-pop singer-songwriter Sara Hallie Richardson, the newish soda parlor Vena’s Fizz House in the Old Port, and art shows at SPACE Gallery and the Portland Museum of Art.

Not getting by in Portland


The city’s economy, and especially its real estate market, is booming, and gentrification is a potent force reshaping many neighborhoods. But it’s striking how much is the same for low-wage workers.

Unavailable men need not inquire

In Layman's Terms
I keep attracting men who are completely unavailable—either married or in failing relationships (as I learn later). They don’t make physical advances, but I definitely get the feeling they are interested. Either way, guys I shouldn’t, wouldn’t, and don’t want to be dating. What am I doing wrong to attract them? And how do I get this pattern to change?”

Activists pass SoPo ordinance

No tar sands
When people talk about outside money coming into the Portland region, they’re usually referring to the food, tourism, and hospitality industries. But it’s getting increasingly harder to overlook the influence of the oil industry, which has lately been pumping hundreds of thousands of dollars into efforts to expand tar sands and crude oil production along the East Coast.
