Not two buck chuck wine bag - thank God!

  1. New Lake Oswego council is off to a questionable start – The first item of business was to approve a search process for the hiring of a permanent city manager, which was done. Next, however, came a surprise motion made by the mayor himself to remove the current interim city manager and replace him with a new interim city manager. The surprise was not that this was happening. Anytime there is a change in leadership, these changes are not that unusual. What was a surprise, however, was how all of this was handled.

  2. Indiana’s Gambling Lock Is Loosened – Threats of casino expansion in neighboring states are endangering a gambling powerhouse’s revenue stream. Above, a newly renovated casino in Hammond, Ind.

  3. A Guide to America’s Most Ambitious Transit Projects – The U.S. is currently planning 721 regional transit projects. Don’t hold your breath for their completion, though.

  4. Hotseat: Baruti Artharee – The city’s new cops czar talks about making the police safer for his grandkids.

  5. Off the Grid – The history behind Portland’s sometimes baffling street grid.
