I would love a definition of "public housing", as used in this context.
The Skorman complex is indeed the third corner of my triangular life... I love the books, gifts, wine, pizza and toys as much as anyone, especially in summer on the deck. However, this article spells out so many reasons why, almost 20 years ago, having moved to COS from the Twin Cities, I stayed, despite feeling alienated by the sheer magnitude of conservative institutions and people who didn't believe what I do. Little did I know that Richard helped found the Indy, a weekly must have in my newspaper loving home. He of course was my favorite Councilman, ever, not knowing he was behind the Stormwater initiative, an $11/year investment in our infrastructure I still don't understand why people didn't like. Patricia has quietly become part of the fabric of us, which I didn't know (thank you!), Richard was instrumental to TOPS... I am just so much more impressed with this man, I hate to think about him retiring. We are all so much better off! I really believe I would not have stayed here if not for what he did, right when I contemplated going back home. I hope everyone appreciates Richard's role in our community.
Sooo, so sad I missed this. I'm on the emailing list now! :(
I, too, am a cranky Minne suburbanite transplant, wishing there was a 7th Ave or Aquatennial or Uptown Art Fair to assuage my grief of leaving the great city of my birth. Thanks for weighing in on things that midwesterners care about.
nice interview. I like Lance. sounds like he'll be a good stepdad, too.
awesome! I have been waiting for Brent to reappear in his own venue for years! :)
I left my church because of their support of a Love Won Out event that FotF held years ago (maybe '02)... basically a candlelight vigil against gay teens. Why not simply ask them to abstain??? As a parent of (then) teenagers, all I wanted was for the church to tell the kids to WAIT! Not to go to hell...
