          What's Happening With Florida Today? Plus-- A Note From Matt Haggman      Cache   Translate Page      

Politico: "The general consensus among Republicans is that they will lose the House, and end up in at least a five-seat minority-- that would correspond to a 28-seat loss. Senior Republicans tell us that even in a worst-case scenario, they do not expect to lose 40 seats. A prescient prediction or famous last words?"

Of all the senior Republican lawmakers they spoke with over the weekend, "only one made the case that the GOP will keep the House." If it's who I think it was, he was staggering drunk for the entire weekend. Many Republicans expected the House races to tighten up by election day. Instead the generic ballot polls have gotten even worse for them. The last one for CNN by SSRS shows an absolutely massive 55% to 42% preference for Democrats among likely voters. As I've said before, the pollsters' likely vote modeling is wrong because it is not taking increased Latino and millennial voting into account. Polls predicting less than 30 flipped seats will all be off by as much as 100% tonight.




Let's look at Florida. Yesterday's Marist poll shows Andrew Gillum leading Ron DeSantis in the gubernatorial race-- 50% to 46%-- and Bill Nelson leading Scott in the Senate race by the same 50% to 46%. Democrats are very lucky to have Gillum at the head of the ticket instead of dull conservative Gwen Graham, who had been the establishment candidate and who would have dragged the party down the toilet with her. But it's a shame Florida doesn't have any good congressional candidates who could ride the wave and Andrew's coattails into office. Instead, it's a bunch of DCCC-recruited backs from the Republican wing of the party-- New Dems and Blue Dogs. This is the key today: "Democrats in both races are performing better than their Republican counterparts with likely voters who are independents, minorities and women."


Stoking domestic terrorism goes over especially badly with independent voters

Results from Quinnipiac are nearly identical: seven point leads for both Gillum and Nelson, entirely because of double-digit leads for both among women, minorities and independent voters. Writing Sunday for the Miami Herald Steve Bousquet reported on the surge in early voting for Democrats. On Sunday, "Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Hillsborough and Orange, the five biggest 'blue' counties, all reported their highest one-day early voting totals of the 2018 campaign. As a result, on a day when President Donald Trump rallied thousands of Republicans in Pensacola, the GOP’s ballot advantage over the Democrats shrank to six-tenths of 1 percentage point (0.6), with GOP ballots at 40.8 percent of the statewide total and Democrats at 40.2 percent." By Monday morning Dems had a +0.5% lead over Republicans in ballots cast. In 2014 Republicans held almost a 6% lead over Dems going into election day.

So how many Democratic candidates will Gillum's coattails and the anti-red wave drag to victory in Florida today? Most of the candidates are so terrible that it's hard to say-- but even the worst of them are less horrible than the Republicans they're opposing. Donna Shalala, as bad a candidate as you'll find anywhere, will probably beat Maria Salazar in bright blue FL-27 (PVI- D+5) despite herself. Nate Silver gives her a 6 in 7 chance to win (84.7%). Next door in Carlos Curbelo's district (FL-26-- where the DCCC and Pelosi's PAC have spent $7,175,066 attacking Curbelo-- another weak Democrat, Debbie Mucarsel-Powell looks like she'll take the seat (PVI is D+6). Silver gives her a 5 in 9 chance (55.6%). The other Republican-held Miami-Dade seat, Mario Diaz-Balart's 25th district (PVI- R+4) has the best of the 3 Democratic challengers, Mary Barzee Flores, but in the toughest race. Silver gives her a 2 in 7 chance (27.8%) to beat Diaz-Balart. The wave will have had to have turned into a tsunami tonight for her to win.




Silver gives Wasserman Schultz a 99.9% chance of retaining her seat in a 3-way contest against progressive Tim Canova and some Republican sacrificial lamb, more or less the same chance Joe Crowley had in beating Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The only polling in the district-- by a GOP firm-- shows Wasserman Schultz exactly tied with Canova.

The DCCC has 4 other Democratic candidates on their Red to Blue page-- Nancy Soderberg (FL-06, Ron DiSantis' open seat with an R+7 PVI), Kristen Carlsen (FL-15, Dennis Ross' open seat stretching from the Tampa suburbs to the Orlando area with an R+6 PVI), David Shapiro (FL-16, Vern Buchanan's Sarasota, Bradenton seat with an R+7 PVI) and Lauren Baer (FL-18, Brian Mast's Treasure Coast district with an R+5 PVI). Silver doesn't give any of them much of a chance to win. Soderberg 1 in 4, Carlsen 3 in 7, Shapiro 1 in 7, and Baer 1 in 12. Soderberg, Baer and Shapiro (as well as Mucarsel-Powell) are all New Dems. The 2 Florida candidates in red districts with the best shot are 2 normal Dems, Kristen Carlsen and Mary Barzee Flores. The DCCC has spent modestly in a few of the races-- $499,932 in FL-06, $146,362 in FL-16, $868,290 in FL-18, and $694,360 in FL-15
.




Matt Haggman is one of the progressive Democrats Blue America endorsed this cycle but who didn't win his primary, losing out, in this case, to an establishment nothing with lots of name recognition and money but with nothing to offer the voters except that she's not a Trumpist. Tragic waste of a blue seat but Matt has been good sport about it, endorsed her and has been working to help elect her. He agreed to catch us up on what he's been up to down in South Florida. He reiterated that "This is the most important mid-term election in our lifetimes. It’s a moment when we will decide as a country who we are and who we are not. Here in Florida I have been working to help Andrew Gillum, Donna Shalala, Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, Mary Barzee Flores and Bill Nelson all win. Just this weekend I was out canvassing. But, before this, I was a candidate. I was one of the many across the country who left good jobs to up and run for Congress following the 2016 presidential election. For me, it didn’t go as hoped. I lost to Donna Shalala in Florida’s Congressional District 27. Howie asked that I share a blog post I wrote in the weeks after the Aug. 28 Florida primary. It’s a reminder of the reasons why this mid-term is so important. Why each of us can have a big impact even if we’re not on the ballot. And why, whether a candidate or supporter, we must do all we can to ensure everyone gets out to vote this Election Day to turn a new page in our politics."

Until Next Time, Thank you

It’s been a few weeks since the primary election. Obviously, for me, it was a disappointment. But the many great wishes since election night from friends and supporters has been wonderful. I wanted to write a post and say thank you. And also reflect a bit on the past 13 months campaigning for US Congress.

Before doing that, I again congratulate Donna Shalala on her victory. This is a moment in our politics that is bigger than any individual and it’s critical that the Democratic party take control of the U.S. House of Representatives. We must unite behind her. In addition, we have to elect Andrew Gillum as our next Governor! His campaign has energized us all, and it’s time to bring it home.

Looking back on the primary, my overriding feeling is gratitude. I’m extremely thankful to my wife Danet, who supported me in this effort, and thankful to all of the people who propelled our campaign--  the volunteers, fellows, staff, donors and, ultimately, voters. I had never run for any elected office, yet so many went all-in supporting our campaign. Thank you very, very much.

Our fellows were, in particular, an inspiration to me. We recruited more than 50. Most were in college, some still in high school. Working on the campaign after class or full-time during summer break. Weekends, nights. Calling voters, knocking on doors. They were passionate and dedicated. Now, they are back on campus. At schools from Miami Dade College and Michigan to Boston University and Palmetto Senior High School. At a time when our political system badly needs a reset, they showed what it means to take hold of our democracy. With them, our future is so blazingly bright.

Along with our fellows, what I loved about being a candidate was talking with voters and being out in the community. I loved it. Going door to door on sweltering summer afternoons in Kendall, or Little Havana, or Richmond Heights. Evenings canvassing in Westchester or Palmetto Bay. Unfiltered and alone, it was just us; talking about our community and country. On those days and nights there was no place I would rather be.

Life revealed itself in its many forms on these unannounced visits. The couple celebrating their daughter who was headed to college. The single mom working three jobs to keep current on her mortgage. The middle-aged woman who tried to chat amiably but, after a time, couldn’t hold it back any longer, sharing that she’d just been diagnosed with cancer. “I need a hug,” she said, a tear running down her cheek, which she quickly and defiantly wiped away.

The conversations were always so real--  standing at front doors, sitting in living rooms, meeting people where they are, learning about their hopes and concerns, aspirations and struggles. At a time when Washington has so fundamentally and collectively lost its way, at the grassroots people are making sense. We need to spend more time listening to them.

Indeed, throughout the campaign I often said the best ideas come from the community, not candidates. I really meant it. Change happens from the ground up, and that’s never been more true than today. From start to finish, our campaign sought to stay true to that ethos. Namely, we focused on voters, rather than cutting down competitors as a means to win.

We visited every precinct, we knocked on some 45,000 doors. Again and again, I found a sincerity, thoughtfulness and a belief that things will get better. I always thought we lived in a special community, but over the last year I’ve vividly seen it with my own eyes in one neighborhood after another. Those thousands of conversations leave me today more hopeful and optimistic than ever.

If only our politics can be as good as them. I think it can, but we are going to have to change in big ways.

To me, election night 2016 was a shattering moment--  and it’s what ultimately prompted me to run. I had believed that America would never elect a person who said and did the things that Donald Trump said and did. I believed that America today would never elect a bully, a liar, someone who preyed upon our worst fears and sought to divide us to win support. We might come close to electing such a demagogue, but at this stage in our country’s history we would never actually do it. I was obviously wrong.

The better angels of our nature had given way to our most base sensibilities. A presidency built on hope was followed by one grounded in our worst fears.

In early January, as President Obama prepared to leave office, he gave his farewell address, warning that we can’t take democracy for granted. That it “falls on each of us to be anxious, jealous guardians of our democracy.” What the speech said to me is that, yes, America is a special place. But it’s only special because generation after generation has continually engaged in making it so--  even as there are setbacks, sometimes dramatic setbacks, along the way.

Then, at Danet’s urging, on January 21st we attended the Women’s March in Washington, D.C. My sister Meghan and our friend Lissette went too. It was an extraordinary day as millions around the world rose up. It was there that I thought to myself that this remarkable moment of protest must also be a moment of real and lasting change--  and wondered how to try and live that. It was there that I decided to run.

The reason I decided to drop everything, leave my job at Knight Foundation and do something I’d never done before was because I believed we were--  and are--  at a pivotal moment. This is not a normal election year.

I firmly believe that years from now people will ask about this time, what did we do?

What did we do when a President--  along with a compliant Republican-controlled Congress--  called for border walls, Muslim bans, tore thousands of immigrant children from their parents, bowed to a foreign power that meddled in our election, sympathized with neo-Nazis, sought to use law enforcement as a means to settle political scores, and declared the press an enemy of the state.

This election is our moment to reaffirm and declare who we are-- and who we are not--  as a country.

But, in doing so, we have to realize that this election is about what’s next. It can’t just be about what we’re against, but it has to be about what we’re for. Indeed, while Donald Trump has contributed much to our dysfunctional politics, the truth is that he’s the result of a dysfunctional system that has been spiraling for some time.

We are only going to achieve the change we need if we dispense with the incrementalism that has defined our politics for so long and think--  and do--  in dramatic new ways. And allow new leaders to emerge in a political system that’s long become stuck.

Put another way, it’s a two-part challenge: ensure that today does not become the new normal, and provide a vision for what tomorrow will look like. With that in mind, we sought to run a campaign that actually represented the change we seek.

At a time when money is undermining our democracy, we didn’t accept any funding from political action committees, federal lobbyists or special interests like big sugar.

At a time when so many have given up on politics, our campaign was powered by extraordinary campaign fellows who were the heart and soul of our effort.

At a time when so many are disconnected from our government, we built a field program that sought to personally engage voters in every neighborhood in every part of the district.

At a time when the leadership in Congress hasn’t changed in years, we called for an entirely new slate of people in leadership roles in the House. The new faces in the next Congress must not be just newly elected members, but the leaders at the top too.

Of course, our efforts did not result in a victory. But I have no regrets. After all, this is a moment to take chances. And throughout my life I’ve always sought to take chances by diving into entirely new things; and going all-in when I do.

Whether it was going to New Orleans to write a biography on Professor Longhair (still unfinished). Or moving to Miami-- where I didn’t know a soul (but met my soulmate)--  to become a journalist (where I had a great run that lasted nearly a decade). Or leaving the Miami Herald to join Knight Foundation (where I had an even better run), in which I launched an entirely new program that planted the seeds and propelled Miami’s rapidly emerging startup and entrepreneurial community.

I want to stretch myself, test boundaries and be willing to do entirely new things. Incumbent to that approach will be wins and losses. It’s the in-between that I want to avoid.

Make no mistake, I dearly wish I was part of the Blue Wave at this critical point in our country’s history. But I’m not. This moment belongs to candidates with names like Gillum, O’Rourke, Pressley, Lamb, Ocasio-Cortez, and so many others. I will be cheering every one of them on, and support in any way I can. We need them to win and be good leaders when a new Congress is sworn in in January.

And, each in our own way, we all need to lean in and help. The moment is too important. The challenges are too great. The stakes too high. No one can sit this out.

So what’s next? The short answer is, I don’t know.

I do know that I have many people to thank. I remember when I decided to run, a friend advised that people look at you differently when you’re a political candidate. He cautioned that you’ll be disappointed by friends you thought would be there. But he also said you’ll be surprised by the support from those you didn’t know before or never expected. Focus and delight in the latter, he said. And I will.

(One quick note: Danet and I took some time away after the election. If you haven’t heard from me yet, you’ll be hearing from me soon.)

After such an all-consuming period I also have many friendships to renew, which I am looking forward to doing.

Life is about chapters and seasons. The thing about political campaigns is the chapter ends so suddenly. After such an intense period, it’s quickly and suddenly over. It’s a crash landing. But a new chapter begins. There is power in blank canvases. I’ve experienced it before. It’s at moments like these when you can edit your life and think completely anew. It’s often at these moments when the unimagined happens, when you follow completely new paths and find unexpected success.

I have no idea what this next chapter will bring, but I’m excited to find out.

After the race, I spoke with Reggie, who is a great friend and the father of Joshua, my little through Big Brother Big Sister for more than a decade. Reggie said to me: “You gotta keep pressing on my man. It’s all good.”

That pretty much says it all. Keep pressing on.

          Training log - Week ending 11/4/18      Cache   Translate Page      
This week was 57 miles of running, 33 "miles" of pool-running, and 1000 yards of swimming -- training log is here.

And that's a wrap on this cycle.  This was my last week of marathon training, including my last 21 miler plus a tempo workout.  

I'm actually feeling very fresh, and also like I haven't trained very much or very long.  Which is honestly a bit disconcerting.  I'm trying to remind myself that the myth that we're supposed to feel awful and exhausted when marathon training is just that - a myth.  What we perceive as "training hard" is often times overtraining, while the "just right" feels like it's too little.  

The purpose of marathon training is NOT to pile as much work on as one can handle without breaking; it's to get fit, and then to show up on race day fresh and ready to go.

Fortunately, since I've done two marathons already this year, I'm not TOO freaked out about feeling like my cycle has been too short.  The distance is familiar to me, not mysterious.  So I just keep telling myself that regardless of how much or little I did this cycle, I'm fit, I know how to race the distance, and now I just need to show up on race day ready to give it my best shot.

Of course, showing up ready to go on race day can be challenging for reasons outside of training.  One example: my partner was really sick this entire week (and yes - he and I both got our flu shots).  This was quite concerning to me, as I had my last 21 miler this weekend, and Richmond half next weekend - both of which were key parts of my marathon training.  It's also worth noting that because of my asthma meds, I'm at a greater risk of catching a bug than the rest of the population, and getting sick is almost a certain guarantee of an asthma flare.

 (not to mention that I really really hate seeing him sick - I felt awful for him).

I took some hilarious and arguably extreme measures to avoid catching his bug, including disinfecting _everything_ every morning, washing my hands more than Lady Macbeth, changing our pillow-cases and sheets quite often, and wearing a flu mask to sleep at night.  So far, it seems to have worked - I hope that continues.

          Voting yes on housing justice in California      Cache   Translate Page      

Julien Ball writes from San Francisco on the importance of a ballot measure that, if passed, would help to counter the corporate landlords and their gentrification plans.

CALIFORNIA VOTERS have a chance on Election Day to pass a ballot measure, known as Proposition 10, that would restore the right of cities to pass strong rent control.

Martha Simmons’ story illustrates why it would be an important victory for housing justice if Prop 10 passes.

Martha is one of the millions of California renters who have been negatively affected by the Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act of 1995 — the state law restricting local authorities from implementing rent control, which Proposition 10 would repeal if it passes.

Martha grew up in San Francisco’s Bayview-Hunters Point neighborhood, and her family has roots in the historically working-class, African American area for several generations. Thus, in 2005, she was happy to move into a home on Ingerson and 3rd Street that was big enough for her large, multigenerational, tight-knit family.

The rent, $3,300 per month, wasn’t cheap, but by working long hours at her job as front-desk security at a downtown building, Martha found that she could afford it and even begin to save money. The landlord, Dorothy Banks, never made repairs, but Martha put up with that because Banks promised her that when she sold the home, Martha could buy it.

Rallying for pro-tenant Proposition 10 in California

She continued to make the repairs that she could out-of-pocket to keep the home in good condition. At one point, the septic tank flooded the unit where Martha’s sister lived, rendering it uninhabitable. Martha’s sister suffered severe health problems before eventually moving out.

Despite all this, Martha continued to work to make the rent on time and put some money aside to buy the home one day. But that was before San Francisco’s real estate market exploded.

When Banks decided to sell, instead of accepting Simmons’ $650,000 offer on the home, she raised the rent, first to $4,700 a month, and then to $5,200, in the hopes she could drive the family out and sell the home empty, getting more money for it.

Simmons desperately scrambled to make ends meet, working three jobs, sleeping just a few hours a night and cashing out her 401(k) retirement fund to make the payments on time. But when even that wasn’t enough, she was faced with an eviction notice for nonpayment of rent.

She joined the community group Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE) to help organize rallies and protests, but nothing succeeded in getting Banks to reconsider.

Martha and her family finally realized their dream of home ownership, but only by moving to Oakley, on the outskirts of the Bay Area, more than 50 miles from their former home — joining the legions of working people and people of color who have been displaced from San Francisco and other California cities due to evictions and rising rents.


WHAT HAPPENED to Martha and her family is perfectly legal because of a state law called Costa-Hawkins that, among other restrictions, bans cities from covering single-family homes like hers under rent control laws.

Martha is supporting Prop 10, which would repeal Costa-Hawkins, in the hopes that others will be spared what she suffered. “It’s stressful to have one foot in the door and one foot in the street,” says Martha. “No human being should have to go through what we went through. It’s disturbing to know so many people are going through the same thing.”

Costa-Hawkins — named after its legislative sponsors Democratic state Sen. Jim Costa and Republican State Assembly member Phil Hawkins — was a bipartisan bill passed by the legislature over two decades ago at the behest of the real estate industry.

The law bans cities from passing strong rent control in several ways:

First, it bans cities from covering single-family homes or condos under rent control.

Second, it stops cities from applying permitted rent control regulations to so-called “new construction,” defined as any construction after the 1995 passage of the law. Cities that already have rent control are barred from extending rent control to buildings constructed after those cities passed their ordinances. In San Francisco, that date is 1979, and in Los Angeles, it is 1978.

Finally, it bans vacancy control — a type of rent control that restricts rent increases in between tenants. So when a tenant leaves, landlords can charge as much as they want to the next tenant.

In a city like San Francisco, a market with large numbers of higher-income earners, lack of rent control between tenancies creates a huge incentive for landlords to evict low-rent tenants so they can bring in tenants who can afford market rate. In San Francisco, that median rate was $3,253 per month for a one-bedroom apartment in 2017, according to the real estate website Curbed.

Lack of vacancy control, coupled with the ban on rent control for any so-called “new construction” means the sometimes gradual and sometimes rapid loss of affordable, rent-controlled apartments, with no way to replace them. That, combined with the decades-long, federal divestment from affordable and public housing, has amounted to a deliberate, bipartisan attack on our ability to solve the affordability crisis.


REPEAL OF Costa-Hawkins has long been at the top on the wish list for California tenants’ rights groups struggling to deal with the affordability crisis, but only recently have they considered it possible.

While cities like San Francisco have established nonprofit organizations advocating for tenants’ rights, in other cities, volunteer-led groups have more recently formed to organize tenants and press for local rent control ordinances.

The Los Angeles Tenants Union has organized rent strikes. In several cities, ACCE successfully organized tenants’ chapters to take on corporate landlords like the Blackstone Group, which bought thousands of single-family homes and raised the rent. And since 2015, the Bay Area cities of Richmond and Mountain View have passed the first local rent control ordinances in California in decades.

Earlier this year, groups around the state organized to push for AB 1506, legislation that would have repealed Costa-Hawkins. The San Francisco-based Anti-Displacement Coalition organized protests to get State Assembly member David Chiu, one of the sponsors, to bring the bill to his committee for a vote.

When a committee hearing finally took place in January, hundreds of tenants and their supporters from around the state packed the room, along with landlords organized by real estate front groups.

When the Democratic-led Assembly failed to move the bill out of committee, Los Angeles-based groups such as the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, ACCE and the Eviction Defense Network began collecting signatures to put Proposition 10 on the ballot.


PROP 10 is facing an uphill battle. State and national real estate groups have spent a whopping $77.5 million on misleading ads to convince voters that the referendum is bad for renters.

A number of Wall Street developers and real estate investment trusts like Blackstone Group, its subsidiary Invitation Homes, Essex Property Trust, Equity Residential and AvalonBay Communities — with portfolios of tens of thousands of California homes between them — each donated $3 million or more to defeat the initiative.

These corporations know that passing statewide restrictions on local control is one of the most effective weapons in their arsenal — and that if Prop 10 passes, groups in the 32 states that currently have an outright ban on rent control could decide to take matters into their own hands and repeal those restrictions, too.

Passage of Prop 10 would be only the first step in winning the kind of rent control needed to address the affordability crisis. Once Costa-Hawkins restrictions are lifted, it will be up to cities to pass the rent control they need to address the crisis. Local political leaders of both parties rely on real estate developers and real estate industry groups for campaign donations, and industry lobbyists often enjoy almost unfettered access to politicians.

Working people and tenants will have to build movements with the necessary size, organization and social power to stop evictions, beat back rent increases and force politicians to pass local laws that prioritize them over real estate industry profits.

But voting “yes” on Proposition 10 is crucial to widening the scope for what victories are possible for the housing movement in the years to come.

          Let’s make elections about the issues, not “spoiler” hacks      Cache   Translate Page      

On the eve of the 2018 midterm elections, the issue of “spoilers” and third-party and independent candidates is front and center in several of most high-profile elections, even as Maine is showcasing the best solution: ranked choice voting.

President Donald Trump brought attention to how the major parties can manipulate voters through use and abuse of the role of third-party candidates. On Saturday, the president tweeted that allies of incumbent Democratic Sen. Joe Donnelly have been seeking to elevate the Libertarian Party candidate as more conservative than the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate:

Rumor has it that Senator Joe Donnelly of Indiana is paying for Facebook ads for his so-called opponent on the libertarian ticket. Donnelly is trying to steal the election? Isn’t that what Russia did!?

The Indiana Democratic Party indeed has issued ads that compare Republican Mike Braun and Libertarian nominee Lucy Brenton - not because they want Brenton to win, of course, but because they know that conservative votes for Brenton are votes not being cast for Braun.

Both parties engage in such tactics regularly, with controversies this year including the staff of a Republican congressman in Virginia collecting fraudulent signatures in an effort to help a former Democratic congressional nominee get on the ballot as an an independent. As Trump points out, Russian hackers of our elections in 2016 engaged in the same tactic in the presidential race, which former Republican congressman John Porter and I explained in an op-ed earlier this year.

More generally, third parties and independents are under attack across the nation for “spoiling” elections, as detailed last month by FairVote intern Ryan Joy. Notably, the past month has seen a run of prominent independents and third parties dropping out to avoid dividing a potential majority vote. Dropouts include the incumbent independent governor of Alaska Bill Walker and candidates running in major statewide races in Arizona, Maine, Oregon and - at least for one day - Michigan. In Georgia, votes for Libertarian nominees in elections for governor and secretary of state may trigger a December runoff election, as Georgia seeks to uphold majority rule.

Congressman Porter and I turn to a better way to secure our elections and put voters first:  ranked choice voting (RCV). Already used in 11 cities, with five additional cities recently enacting it for their next elections, RCV is being showcased this year in Maine in multi-candidate races for U.S. Senate and U.S. House for the first time in American history. Grounded in the editors’ experience with RCV in mayoral elections in Portland and the statewide primaries in June, this editorial in the Maine’s largest paper, The Portland Press Herald, about the withdrawal of independent gubernatorial candidate Alan Caron makes a compelling contrast between our usual single-choice, “top-of-the-heap” plurality system with ranked choice voting:

Caron came into the race with decades looking at Maine’s economic history and formulating ideas about what could make it grow now. But for most of the race, the first question he was asked was how he would navigate the spoiler question….. How different would this race have been if ranked-choice voting had been in play? Instead of asking him to drop out, people might have asked him about his plan to make the state energy independent by 2030, or two free years of higher ed for students who live in Maine for 10 years. Instead of focusing on how to prevent the worst possible outcome from the election, voters could have thought about what the best outcome could look like. That doesn’t mean that candidates like Caron would win, but they would at least have a chance to make their case.

Next Tuesday, Mainers will be able to compare the two voting systems. They will be able to rank preferences in the multi-candidate races for U.S. Senate and Congress but not in the three-way race for governor. Any of them who did not fill out a ranked-choice ballot in the June primary will get a chance to decide what’s more confusing: Marking a ballot that indicates a first and second choice, or trying to handicap a multi-candidate race, figuring out who’s a legitimate contender and who’s a spoiler.

In his news conference Monday, Caron said that he would work to pass a constitutional amendment to permit ranked-choice voting in state races. That remains the best way to address this problem.

FairVote’s senior fellow David Daley foreshadowed this editorial in his recent excellent analysis for the journal Democracy:

“[Ranked choice voting] is not a partisan reform. There will be times when it might help Democrats, or aid Republicans, or boost independents. This is a reform for voters, and a reform that incentivizes politicians to campaign and govern beyond their bases. RCV is the most significant reform we could enact to give voters more meaningful choices and ensure winners with true majority support. Candidates shouldn’t be dropping out, and offering voters fewer choices, just when most voters are beginning to pay attention. Likewise, there’s no need for voters to spend late October obsessing with polls and fretting a spoiler vote, or having to return a second time to the polls in November. The solution is as easy as 1, 2, 3.”

Let’s do what’s best for voters - and best for upholding the integrity of our elections - and avoiding electoral tactics based on undercutting representative democracy. Let’s enact ranked choice voting across our federal and state elections.

Boy, 16, charged after woman carjacked, ripped from driver’s seat and dragged along road

A WOMAN has been dragged along a road while hanging head-first out of her car after being carjacked, allegedly by a 16-year-old boy in Sydney’s west.

Police said the 65-year-old woman was set upon in a car park outside a fast food restaurant on Richmond Road at Blacktown about 10.15pm on Tuesday.

The woman was reportedly getting into her vehicle, a Mazda 3, when a 16-year-old boy walked up and dragged her out of the driver’s seat, police said.

Undeterred by rain and lines, Richmond voters turn out in high numbers. By 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, more than 700 voters from precinct 204 had already cast their ballots at First Baptist Church. According to the city registrar’s office, that precinct saw 865 ballots in the 2014 midterms and 1,856 in the 2016 presidential election.

For some, it’s the first time voting for any office other than the president. Sahba Saravi, a 25-year-old law student recalls the political landscape when she was younger.

“When Obama first became president I was still in high school and didn’t really understand what was going on, but later I learned that the House blocked a lot of things that he wanted to do, and I find that that’s not happening in our current situation as much as we would like,” she says, adding that she pays more attention to national politics now. “If I can do my part in it then I’m going to.”

Saravi says she doesn’t identify with one party or the other, but today she voted for the Democrats on her ballot: Tim Kaine for Senator and Don McEachin for the 4th District.

Omi Eaddie, who’s 38 and works for a nonprofit, says she always votes in midterms, but “everything happening in the world right now” made her especially motivated to come out on this drizzly morning.

“People think smaller elections don’t matter,” Eaddie says. “But I’m even more inclined to vote now. Every little vote counts.”

As someone who’s made her career in the nonprofit sector and notes that national and state policies often impact her work, Eaddie says she wants “people in office that respect [her] as a working person.”

Derek Lewis, 49, voted for one Republican and one write-in.

“I think it’s our privilege and responsibility to vote,” he says. “There are a lot of people in the world who don’t have the opportunity to vote.”

How saving even unsung historic buildings keeps the city’s character intact.

Our town is nothing if not giddy these days with each announcement of a planning or development scheme. Vision statements and building starts percolate daily from many directions, or so it seems. A James River Park System plan, revising the downtown plan, a proposal to eliminate Monroe Ward's surface parking lots, the $1.4 billion dollar Coliseum-Navy Hill redevelopment, replacing the Diamond, establishing a historic district in Blackwell, and a sweeping, updated master plan for Virginia Commonwealth University are all in the works.

Then there are ideas to improve the Jefferson Davis Highway corridor, build new housing on the site of old Armstrong High School, develop a medical building at the former Westhampton School, and conducting an international design competition for re-imagining Confederate-infused Monument Avenue.

Scott's Addition and Manchester continue to blossom, while along Brookland Park Boulevard and its vicinity, developers are shifting pedestrian-scaled projects into gear. Meanwhile building cranes loom over downtown, Jackson Ward and the flood wall on both sides of the river. Newly topped-off buildings punctuate the Manchester and Financial District skylines as site plans are flying off drawing boards for taller residential buildings along the path of the Pulse.

And this just in: Public input from a recent Richmond Times-Dispatch public square meeting included one on the 75 item wish list: to ramp up the city's population to 500,000.

Whew.

But here's the thing, in our rush to be macro — that is, taller, faster, denser, more intensive and more inclusive — we need to keep a cautious and protective focus on the micro. That entails holding tightly to the things that make Richmond, well, Richmond.

Of course, a list of what those things entail varies depending on whom you ask, but many agree that Richmond is predisposed to conservatism, for better or worse. This go-slowly attitude means that the region is emerging from some relatively sleepy decades, compared to the go-go, boom-boom aggressiveness of such cities to the south as Charlotte, Atlanta and Miami. This also means that Richmond has maintained much of the architectural soul of what makes it special, even quirky. Many of our old and newer historic neighborhoods, from Church Hill and Woodland Heights to Barton Heights, Hermitage Road and Lakeside to Scott's Addition, have never looked better.

However, disturbing things can accompany so-called progress, even in a city that proceeds with caution.

While the dizzying growth of VCU is, on balance, positive, the population and physical expansion have presented some cautionary situations. In Oregon Hill, after years of attempting to balance town vs. gown dynamics while repenting for the sins of demolishing hundreds of houses for the Downtown Expressway, for instance, something unfortunate occurred recently. This past spring, a solidly built row of modest but dignified and handsome antebellum buildings in the 800 block of West Cary Street was demolished. It is being replaced with a 100-unit apartment building — providing needed housing, of course — but offering zilch in architectural interest in exchange for the loss. With a modicum of imagination, and another pass or two at tweaking the design, the irreplaceable historic structures could have been woven into the plan, maintaining a link to the neighborhood's past and applying historic preservation tax credits to financing the project. It would have been the right thing to do.

While the Pulse bus system has added new visual energy to a 7-mile urban and suburban corridor from Willow Lawn to Rocketts Landing, planners are seeking to intensify housing along the route with taller buildings within a zone that planners are calling a "transit-oriented nodal district."

It didn't take long for one developer to announce his concept for building a 12-story chain hotel a block north of the 17th Street Farmers' Market at 127 N. 17th Street. Sadly, this would inject the first high-rise building into the tissue of Shockoe Bottom, a district of old, low-lying buildings, mostly fewer than five stories. It is one of our city's most evocative places, and probably sacred as well, with the still-untapped reservoir of painful stories to be researched and told regarding decades of slave trading that occurred here.

The developer of the proposed hotel did offer an extenuating olive branch: His intent is to weave the century-old Weiman's Bakery building that occupies the site into the plan — and gain historic tax credits for the gesture. Would that other developers showed the same, well, if in not quite sensitivity, at least savvy.

Three projects now in the works provide similar cases.

Arguments are back and forth on the fate of the Intermediate Terminal No. 3 near Rocketts Landing. Stone Brewing Co. had promised to convert the concrete warehouse, built in 1939, into a destination pub and restaurant at the hulking remnant from Richmond's time as a transfer point for sugar from the Caribbean. But it reneged, citing the structure's instability. Meanwhile opposing lines have been drawn to whether the building is even historic or not.

Since officials at the state's Department of Historic Resources withheld its approval of a historic designation, corporate and city officials consider this a pass.

"The complex has lost integrity of setting, design, materials, workmanship, feeling and appreciation," weighed in another local historian, "Interpreting and advancing the story of the commercial shipping history in Richmond does not hinge on salvaging a structure that rests in a flood plain and is beset by numerous structural issues. The history of Rockets Landing and its environs can be told eloquently and artfully absent this decaying building."

But in determining what is historic we might apply United States Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart's 1964 definition of pornography to what is old and historic: "I know it when I see it." If the Intermediate Terminal is the last survivor of what were once scores of riverfront buildings serving Richmond's maritime glory days, come on folks, it's historic.

And why would we even consider tearing down this 79-year-old commercial building? Restored, or left as a glorious empty vessel, it can be the building block, if not centerpiece, of whatever Stone Brewing might build nearby. Rather than either or, let's have old and new.

Consider. One reason our community has been slow to appropriately develop a visual narrative of the slave trade in Shockoe Bottom is that only one building still stands related to the heinous business. Old and historic buildings, architecturally distinguished or not, can be critical starting points when seeking to link the present and past. Lose the buildings and we lose that connection.

The same holds true of a threatened, 168-year-old building on West Cary Street near Nansemond Street that most recently housed a popular restaurant, Carytown Burger & Fries. The general consensus has long been that this worthy and solid, if battered, brick structure was a toll house during much of the 19th century when Cary was named the Westham Plank Road. The rustic highway, laid in dirt and wooden boards, connected Richmond with points west to the mountains along the James River.

Whether or not the toll taker actually lived here, is no big deal here in the 21st century. Today, it is the oldest house in the Museum District and more solid than most of the mid-20th centuries buildings that surround it. The historic resources department has decreed that it's not distinguished enough to receive historic designation. Maybe not, but it's at least 178 years old, for crying out loud. We're not going to have any more like it. Come on, save the darn building. The developer's description of the architectural plan for the proposed complex — a grocery store, parking deck and strip of shops— waxes poetic about how it will fit in with the historic aspects of Carytown. Such banter is cringe-worthy in the face of the loss of this tiny survivor of an important chapter in the neighborhood's history.

Similar goofiness is afoot in Scott's Addition.

It's shocking that a new apartment complex planned for Scott's Addition at West Broad and Summit calls for demolishing an architecturally elegant former SunTrust branch bank now on the site. The one-story, 10,000-square-foot building, built in 1948, is a top-notch colonial revival building that was built on the eve of modernism in Richmond. Its doorways and windows are handsome and its red bricks are laid in the Flemish bond pattern. If one squinted, it wouldn't be hard to imagine this as a house in Windsor Farms or Westmoreland Place where it would fetch $2 million and upwards. In fact, it was probably designed to catch the eye and serve folks who lived in those and less grand West End neighborhoods.

But despite it being a contributing historic structure to the official Scott's Addition Historic District, it is considered expendable to make way for a 166-unit apartment complex. The Summit, from what one can tell from a published rendering, has all the heft and charm of an Ocean City, Maryland, motel, complete with the name of the complex displayed in stacked letters on a prominent exterior wall.

Along with the glorious Handcraft Cleaners Building, a moderne masterwork, and the Blue Bee Cidery, with its rusticated cobblestone walls, this former bank is among the handsomest buildings in Scott's Addition. So why is it being demolished?

Probably for lack of effort or thought. Like the doomed, so-called toll house in Carytown, this classical gem, for some the gold standard in what Richmond domestic-scaled architecture is all about, could easily have been woven into the fabric of the larger development — and add grace notes to an otherwise ordinary design.

I know. We can't save everything. But that's the point: In the case of the Intermediate Terminal and the toll keeper's house everything else is gone. They are sole survivors. The former branch bank, that channels the spirit of Sir Christopher Wren, a late Renaissance English architect, is a standout because it is 180 degrees different from the stash of undistinguished midcentury modern warehouses that populate most of Scott's Addition. Ironically, it is the rare architectural outlier in a neighborhood that prides itself on being über cool.

These and other survivors and outliers are at risk. We shouldn't sacrifice what's left of our distinctive architectural patrimony for a transit-oriented nodal district. S


          Shovels in the Ground      Cache   Translate Page      
A groundbreaking ceremony was held for new mixed-income development, Church Hill North, but public housing residents remain skeptical.

Sharon Herman has lived in public housing for more than 20 years. She and her husband raised their two daughters in Creighton Court, and the couple still share a unit in the nearly 70-year-old housing community in the city's East End. They're empty nesters now, and despite recent issues with rats, corroded pipes and mold behind the washing machine, their apartment still serves as a home base for their kids, grandkids and great-grandkids, plus neighbors who are practically family.

"I want my grandkids and my great-grandkids to see that just because you live in public housing, you do not have to be ghetto, a lower-class citizen," Herman says. "And that's a stereotype for all my years doing what I do in public housing. It's been my work, to not be seen in that aspect, because there's a lot of good in Creighton."

Her face is a familiar one, judging by the number of people who stop by her table to say hello while she's enjoying a muffin and a mocha at the Front Porch Cafe. She considers herself a free spirit, and she's a relentless force behind efforts to engage and uplift the Creighton community. She's a member of the tenant council, serving as a liaison between residents and the Richmond Redevelopment and Housing Authority for years, and she jokes that while she never before envisioned herself in an elected position, now she can't get out. Nor does she want to.

"I'm one of the chosen few that is called to action," she says. "I don't sit back and wait for it to happen. If it needs to be done, somebody's gotta do it, and nine times out of 10, it's me."

Herman had mixed feelings last Tuesday as she sat underneath a tent on the site of her alma mater for a groundbreaking ceremony. In partnership with a private Boston-based developer called the Community Builders, the housing authority has been promising a new mixed-income community, Church Hill North, at the site of the old Armstrong High School for years. The first phase of the development, with a price tag of $26 million, will have 105 units — of those, 60 will be available for seniors and families currently living in Creighton. Funding snafus and leadership turnover at the authority delayed construction, and Herman says residents, who feel jerked around by it, lost confidence in the project long ago.

Speakers at last week's ceremony expressed a renewed sense of hope, and while Herman shared some of that hope, it came with a dose of skepticism. She's heard it all before, she says, and she knows her neighbors have too.

"I felt good in one aspect," she says after the ceremony. "What they said they were going to do, I hope they will do and we'll see a better way of life."

Longtime Creighton resident Evelyn Givens shares Herman's skepticism.

"I have begun to lose hope," she says. "I'll see hope again, not when they put that shovel in the ground, but when I see the first brick go down. Then my eyes will open."

A fear among residents is that when and if new housing does become available, some will get left behind. Only those in good standing with the housing authority, which entails being up-to-date on rent and compliant with all lease requirements, qualify to transition out of Creighton. According to Elaine Summerfield of Richmond Opportunities, that's why family transition coaches begin working with residents "well before shovels hit the ground" on new housing developments available to them.

Summerfield says coaches have already assisted three families in their moves from Creighton to the Apartments at Kingsridge, a development in Henrico County with 18 project-based vouchers. Choice is at the center of the work of Summerfield's group, and coaches work with residents to help them understand all their options. One person who worked with a transition coach, she says, recently bought a home through Habitat for Humanity.

But its transition team is small, and the caseload continues to grow.

"Some people are very optimistic and excited about the possibilities," Summerfield says of Creighton residents. "Others have been disillusioned and do not have confidence that the RRHA and its partners can pull off what is envisioned."

Mayor Levar Stoney, who spoke with emphatic optimism at last week's event, says he believes in a guaranteed one-for-one replacement, and he urged residents to trust the process and keep the faith.
Juan Powell, a Washington-based development director with the Community Builders, addresses some of those concerns after last week's groundbreaking.

"We understand the level of frustration, distrust and skepticism felt by residents in communities that often feel neglected," Powell says in an email. "Most of those emotions are based upon decades of seeing development take place in other parts of their cities, but not their own. And when development does take place, it is often at the expense of the initial residents."

Powell says work on the first round of phase one, which will include 45 units, began in mid-October and is expected to take about a year. The rest of phase one, with 60 units, will be complete by December 2019.

"We are proud of our history of going into challenging neighborhoods and providing affordable housing in a manner that provides additional options to the residents," he says. "We can demonstrate that we are committed to playing a major role in creating a new paradigm for residents of Richmond that have not had sufficient options." S


          A Moral Crisis      Cache   Translate Page      
Jewish leaders reflect on the recent attack at a Pittsburgh synagogue

Anti-Semitism isn't new to Rabbi Dovid Asher. He recalls visiting an amusement park as a young teenager and locking eyes with a stranger who took in his yarmulke and flipped him a swift, demonstrative middle finger. The experience was shocking and traumatic, he says, but stories passed down in his family were more impactful.

His grandmother made it out of Nazi Germany right before Kristallnacht in 1938. Tickets for passage to America were limited, and Asher says his grandmother always felt responsible for the death of her younger sister, who later died in Auschwitz.

"Just hearing my grandmother's stories, seeing the pain she was going through and thinking of her sister's murder in Auschwitz, that's all I ever needed in terms of understanding the evil of anti-semitism," Asher says. "I think she'd be beside herself, seeing how anti-Semitism has kind of risen again, when not so long ago it terrorized the Jewish community worldwide."

Like religious leaders across the country, Asher has spent the last week reflecting on the Oct. 27 shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, which left 11 dead and several more injured. He was one of several Jewish clergy at a vigil in Richmond three days after the shooting, which more than 1,000 people attended. Asher, who grew up in Pennsylvania and came to Richmond in 2011 to lead the congregation at Keneseth Beth Israel, is careful and intentional with his words. He's hesitant to politicize the attack and its aftermath, partially in recognition of shiva, the week-long period of mourning in Jewish culture. During those first seven days, it's customary for observant Jews to sit with their grief and allow themselves to experience the pain in its entirety.

"I think we need to celebrate the lives and to appreciate the pain of the families," Asher says. "I think we need to wait a little bit before we publicly come out and have this conversation." That said, Asher is "terribly concerned about the polarization of this country" and wants to see more unification efforts from elected officials.

Rabbi Michael Knopf of Temple Beth-El, who was named one of Style Weekly's Top 40 Under 40 in 2017, echoes that sentiment, and is more forthcoming on the political front. Like his colleague across town, he's mindful that his congregation represents both ends of the political spectrum and his job is not one of a pundit. But mixed in with sadness and grief following the shooting is also anger and frustration with a climate that he says has emboldened people with hateful ideologies.

"It's really hard for me to separate what happened in Pittsburgh from what happened in Charlottesville last summer," Knopf explains. "In particular what happened when the president responded the way he did. White supremacists in this country had never had a bigger gift and endorsement than that."

That gift, he says, has long-lasting ramifications. The president's rhetoric around immigrants has normalized bigotry and white nationalism, he says, and it's no coincidence that the shooting happened days after known foes of the president received suspicious packages in the mail, or during a time of charged rhetoric around a group of immigrants heading toward the southern border. It's about more than discrimination against people of the Jewish faith, he says.

"It's all interconnected, and it stems from a really ugly campaign of vilifying anyone who could be perceived as other," he says. "We need to stand up for all targeted communities."

Safety is a priority for both rabbis, and there's frustration around the reality that they have to balance keeping their congregants safe without negatively impacting the quality of their work and services.

"We need to be vigilant of our security, but at the same time I want my congregation to be able to be open and welcoming to anybody who wants to experience the joy and beauty of Judaism with us," Knopf says. "It's harder to do that when you have to have an armed guard outside the door."

Both Knopf and Asher note that armed security guards are on the premises during services at their synagogues.

"What that means is we're effectively letting violent anti-Semites rob us of our ability to serve our community in other ways because we have to use those resources to pay for security," Knopf says.

Jewish Family Services' chief operating officer, Sydney Fleischer, says she feels safe as a Jew in Richmond, and it's important to prioritize security and have these discussions while still moving forward. She describes feeling lost and helpless on the day of the shooting.

"It's just stunning, and at first you feel like, 'How can I possibly do anything,'" she says. "Then you realize that any little thing you do matters. One of the Jewish values is that if you save one person you save the world."

As a clinical social worker, Fleischer advises people to talk through whatever they're feeling after a traumatic event, especially parents. It's not easy to tell a child of any age that hatred exists, she says, and a parent may never be able to adequately explain why someone may hate another person who's Jewish. That's why it's crucial to have open discussions and to "highlight the positive," leading by example and teaching diversity and inclusivity from a young age.

For more resources, Fleischer suggests checking out the Network of Jewish Human Service Agencies at networkjhsa.org. Templates are available for writing letters to the bereaved in Pittsburgh, along with links to organizations accepting donations on behalf of the community. S

          Bold Choices: Owners of boutiques discuss the season’s hottest fashion trends      Cache   Translate Page      

As the temperatures change and the holidays approach, the best of the year's fashion comes out to play. But this season feels different than falls that have come before: Women's fashion is bolder than ever. Women of the world are bolder, too.

A variety of female-led social movements such as Time's Up, Me Too and Everytown for Gun Safety have made it onto front pages and into daily conversation. Some of those movements have leveraged fashion to spread the word, including celebrities who wore black dresses at the Golden Globes and Lady Gaga, who chose to wear an oversized men's suit to accept her Women in Hollywood award from Elle Magazine.

'Tis the season to express your wild side, you have every permission and every excuse. This fall, Richmond boutiques are filling their hangers and shelves with trends that allow you to do so. Here are a few finds in the area with thoughts from the owners:

Animal Instincts

Some may say that animal print was never out of style. If it weren't out, then it's evolved into an even bigger beast this year. From hats to shoes, pants to makeup, the influence of animal-inspired prints is just about everywhere.

Think beyond the cloth and wear the trend on your ears. Nina Zabal has been rapidly creating new statement earrings inspired by patterns and collections straight from designers at New York Fashion Week. It's no surprise that one of the patterns that made its way into her latest collection is leopard print. They are made from polymer clay, gold-plated brass and stainless steel. You can find them on her site at shopheartlily.com or stop into Ashby (310 W. Cary St. in Carytown). Prices range from $25 to $250.

For something of a different breed, try snakeskin. Mod & Soul (323 W. Broad St.) carries a snake print V-neck midi dress ($68). It features bohemian dolman sleeves and a light, flowing fabric. While the pattern may nod to a wild vibe, the neutral brown tones are easily paired with fall basics like leather jackets, booties and tights.

One and Done

"Jumpsuits aren't going anywhere," says Daniela Paraschiv at Firefly Lane Boutique (2005-A Huguenot Road). "It's the easiest way to get dressed and make a statement."

If you're a lady on the move, you own a jumpsuit. If you don't, you should. Jumpsuits made a big resurgence several seasons ago and the styles continue to become more wearable, more flattering, and more modern.

Parashiv's store carries a variety of jumpsuits ready for play.  One cherry red Storia jumpsuit ($69) features ruffled bell-bottoms and ties at the shoulder. Another more conservative olive green floral print En Creme jumpsuit ($64) has short sleeves and a flattering wrap top and tie at the waist. Both are in essential Pantone colors for fall.

It's a Man's World

Menswear has been a political statement since women started wearing pants into the office during the 1960s. During the past half century, menswear has adapted more and more to the feminine figure. During Hilary Clinton's recent presidential bid, the power suit had more play than ever before. This season, however, menswear silhouettes aren't limited to blazers and trousers.

Traveling Chic Boutique (3143 W. Cary St.) owner Annie Cosby says she's added two new tuxedo dresses to the store's fall collection. One Greylin white tuxedo dress ($147) features long sleeves and comfortable silk fabric. Another black tuxedo dress ($133) is more feminine with a strapless sweetheart neckline, accentuated by a lapellike border.  The boutique reopened Oct. 19 after renovating its Carytown shop.

Corduroy

As the dress code turns more casual and bolder, women are looking for options outside of denim. "Corduroys are a comfortable alternative to denim and I think that's exactly why they are coming back in style," says Sweetest Stitch owner Niki Kong.

Corduroy can be found in many Richmond boutiques. The new take on the retro trend is less stiff than the classic interpretations you'll find in thrift and consignment stores. Sweetest Stitch carries a pair of burgundy corduroy overalls ($84). They are a familiar pinafore design with functional chest, front, and back pockets.

In another nod to the jumpsuit trend, Sweetest Stitch carries a deep V-neck jumpsuit ($80) in a rich teal color. The wide leg design is best when layered over a fitted long sleeve shirt or tee. The adjustable straps make it easy for a variety of body shapes to wear.

It's Rich

For Posh Sake (9502 Chamberlayne Road) owner Brook Fulwider says that "jewel tones have been a huge hit for fall." Mustard, magenta, teal and burgundy top are her favorite hues. Take home one of the boutique's magenta three-quarter bell sleeve dress ($42) for workwear and a cozy swing magenta bell sleeve sweater for the weekend ($47).

Sometimes these rich shades are best laid out in patterns, according to Shauna Smith, partner and co-owner of the Ashby, Clementine and Clover family. She pulled out a cropped sweater ($9) from Ashby's latest stock. It features thick turquoise, white and golden-rod yellow stripes.

"There are a lot of influences from the '70s in Ashby," Smith says. "Bold is definitely the way to go." S

          REVIEW: Bocata Latin Grill      Cache   Translate Page      
A popular North Chesterfield spot serves up classic Venezuelan cuisine in a nondescript space.

It seems every other week a new list comes out, hailing Richmond as one of the best cities to eat and drink your way through. Outstanding, upscale joints with dang-near star-chef status and stellar bar programs have become the norm, and the accolades are well-deserved.

That said, locals know that some of the best food in town comes from unsung places — mom-and-pop holes in the wall that sling goodness as if it came from grandma's kitchen. Such is the case with Bocata Latin Grill, purveyors of seriously fine Venezuelan eats. 

Open just two years, this place has gained a substantial following. Style Weekly readers recently voted it best gluten-free and best local burger in its annual Best Of Richmond issue. Just take a look at Bocata's Facebook page, where the devout stalk menu additions and drool over daily specials. Phrases like "legit" and "the best" are common in the comments.

Settled in a strip mall off Walmsley Boulevard in North Chesterfield, Bocata is a no-frills eatery — it's walk-up ordering, white walls and plastic utensils, folks. Most everything is served in red plastic baskets with the exception of heaping entrees. If soccer is your thing, you're in luck as there's usually a game on the back wall TV. What it lacks in ambiance, however, the grill makes up for with intense flavor and hospitality. On both of my visits to Bocata, the place was packed. Expect a warm welcome when you enter and a few recommendations if you find the menu a little overwhelming. Pro tip: You might want to take a gander at the offerings online before visiting, to give yourself some time to properly agonize over the expansive menu.

Venezuelan fare is anchored by staples like corn, rice, plantains, cheese and various meats and veggies, so there's a little something for everyone, including those of the gluten-free and vegetarian persuasions. Start your meal off right with an order of tequeños ($5.50), Venezuelan fried cheese sticks. These aren't your run-of-the-mill breadcrumb-covered mozzarella pieces a la TGI Friday's, but rather thick slices of queso fresco wrapped in blistering bread dough, served with creamy garlic and cilantro dipping sauce. Worth noting, the latter ingredient is barely detectable, for those of you who find the ever-polarizing herb to resemble soap. Don't fill up on these bad boys though. You'll want to save room.

While you might think of things like empanadas and arepas as starters, at Bocata these things have the potential to be your entire meal. A solid option proved to be a mixture of empanadas including plain cheese, chicken and pabellón, which combines beef, cheese, plantain and beans, with a side of yuca. Each corn turnover is plump, golden and far exceeds the size of most you've seen, especially for $3. The first break revealed a bounty of filling and gushing cheese — oh, the glory.

The cachapas ($9-$11), or corn pancakes, were equally pleasing. Like a foldable cornbread cousin, this semisweet handheld transports everything from steak to — you guessed it — cheese, to your face. Having maxed out on chicken and plantains, we gave the ham and cheese a go, which offered a balanced blend of sweet and salty. Again, order up a few of these and call them dinner.

Several dishes satisfy heartier appetites and those who might shy away from deep-fried foods. Parilla ($19.50), a mixed grill platter, is perfect for the most indecisive diner — or for sharing, if you're into that — with a smattering of juicy ribs, chorizo and rice alongside tomato, avocado and arepitas, a flat bread made of maize dough. We heard a diner at the next table over raving about his pabellón with its shredded beef, rice, black beans, sweet plantains, fried egg and avocado, and if the flavor lived up to presentation, it's safe to say that man was in for a treat.

Most things packed a mega flavor punch, but never too much kick, making Bocata great for kids too. And if you've got super picky little ones they can nosh on chicken nuggets ($5).

You can't go wrong with the sandwiches, like the aforementioned hamburguesa ($12), served with cheese, avocado, onions, tomato, egg, sausage, ham, coleslaw and crispy potato sticks. And as if there weren't enough edible reasons to give Bocata a try, there's also a beer menu. Available suds range from Dos Equis to some craft brews, but you might not see them hiding behind the counter. Don't hesitate to ask about them.

If there's room, close things out with some sweet stuff. The chicha, a sweet, milkshake-y concoction that tastes like arroz con leche, is a classic dessert beverage in Central and South America. And just like everything else from Bocata, it may not be fancy, but you won't forget it. S

          OPINION: Bet on the Underdog      Cache   Translate Page      
A family transition coach working with Creighton residents calls for more partnership and listening to residents.

Shelter is important to every living creature. It is a primary need outside of food, safety, and water. People may face all sorts of challenges when one or more of these basic needs are interrupted, but the barriers they face and the things they lack don't make them any less of a person or mean they need to be saved. It means they are survivors.

When I was growing up in Jackson Ward and the East End, I didn't think I was living in a high poverty area. It was home and it was community for us. We were family to our neighbors, as they were to us.

My mother was on disability due to various medical concerns. She attended school until 10th grade. When she received a lump sum of money for back child support, we moved from Jackson Ward into a home in the East End. It was a true fixer-upper. She did not know what it took to maintain a home. We were still low-income, trying to make it day by day. If the house needed a new roof, plumbing or electric repair, we could not afford it.

To a person on the outside, it looked better, but it did not feel that way. Things were broken. We were cold and did not have resources or options. My mother did not want to live in a home that was run-down. If she had more knowledge of resources and someone to help her navigate them, I think things would have been different for us. Despite challenges, whether it was lack of food, money, or experiencing domestic violence, my mother and I are survivors.

Working with residents in Creighton Court reminds me daily that despite where you live it is home and it's community. Residents of Creighton Court are resilient and self-aware and they know what barriers they face. Some may feel they are stuck, whether from fear or from trauma. When a person's housing is disrupted through no fault of their own, feelings of fear, anxiety, worry, etc. can impact everything in their daily lives.

Richmond Redevelopment Housing Authority has given residents choices as part of the redevelopment plan. Some Creighton residents do have at least two housing options open to them at this point and more to come in the future. For some, it might be harder to qualify to get into a proposed private housing option — there are more qualifications like a criminal background check, eviction record and credit report. If they do not qualify, what is going to happen to them? Are we truly addressing poverty if we are moving people from public housing clustered in certain neighborhoods to private low-income housing clustered in the same neighborhoods with no choice in the matter?

I understand that the demolition of Creighton Court will not happen overnight. Maybe not in a year. Maybe not in two years. Maybe five or 10 years from now we can talk with residents about what it took to be ready, but we may not have five or 10 years.

The timeline is unclear: We do not know exactly when Creighton will be demolished. We do know that not everyone will be ready to take a step forward when it is time. Some people will get good-paying jobs and be ready to support their families and take on whatever is coming. Some residents will end up in another public housing community. Unfortunately, some may become homeless due to not meeting certain requirements, which is consistently on my mind. Homelessness is the last thing we want for anyone.

I did not take this job to see residents without choices. It's much harder to get people involved in the transition coaching when we can't offer them hope that they can make choices about where they want to go, or when they don't feel like they have what they need to make it on their own — good health, child care, transportation and personal support.

I am here to try to help residents prepare to move out, but I don't have the resources to improve credit. I can teach residents about credit. I can teach them how to read a credit report and how to dispute false reporting. I can show them how to write out bills and think about budgeting. But residents with limited income will still have limited income when they leave Creighton, especially seniors and people on disability.

In order to improve outcomes of redevelopment prospects for residents, all the stakeholders of this work have to be transparent with one another and be OK with saying, "I do not know." Partners also should be intentional about building authentic relationships with residents and have them at the table during every phase of the process.

We also need more funding and partnerships across the board: That includes funding to assist residents with addressing their credit, to help residents address whatever health needs Medicaid expansion won't cover and to help providers like Daily Planet Health Services and Richmond Behavioral Health Authority serve more residents. This also calls for partnerships and funding to expand and improve child-care resources so residents can accept jobs when they are offered.

Public housing residents have been the underdogs in Richmond for a long time. But if the underdog can navigate to resources and have choices and power, they can be successful no matter where they start or how long they've been considered to be down. S

          Suite Spot      Cache   Translate Page      

The line at the Urban Hang Suite looks longer than expected, even for a highly anticipated debut eatery from a well-liked local celebrity. It turns out that most of the visitors aren't actually in line. Instead, they're just hanging out, standing around chatting. Which is exactly what owner Kelli Lemon intends.

The words "connections, coffee, culture" painted on the front windows welcome visitors into Lemon's casual breakfast and lunch spot. Billed as a social cafe, Urban Hang Suite is currently open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week, with plans for occasional after-hours events. The simple menu offers coffee, sandwiches and salads.

Lemon is well-known for her Coffee with Strangers podcast, in which she interviews interesting Richmonders about what they're doing around town. She is a visible figure in the city, recognized for her smiling enthusiasm and community support. On Wednesday, her crew returned the favor at Urban Hang Suite's opening.

"We served 200 people just for breakfast," Lemon says, stepping away from the order counter. "It's been amazing, way past my expectations."

Facing some last-minute snafus with food service, Lemon had pared down the opening menu to just a few sandwiches. Most restaurant owners would react with panic or anger, but Lemon is all smiles.

"We were up until 3 in the morning, and then back here at 5 a.m. to open for breakfast," she says. "Basically, I went home just to shower."

She glosses over the opening-day challenges, projecting confidence and flexibility. "It's all new," she says. "I need to see what people like and what direction it goes."

Urban Hang Suite's order counter is in the front room. A chalkboard menu on the back wall lists breakfast bagel sandwiches, lunch salads, sandwiches and several grain bowls. With no kitchen, the food is pre-made, with counter staff doing some assembly and additions. Lemon is applying for an ABC license and plans to serve local beers, Virginia wines and a few signature cocktails.

"Our goal is to transition to at least 80 percent local sourcing with our vendors," Lemon explains. Currently she offers Lamplighter coffee, and relies on Richmond-based food supplier Performance Food Group. (The writer is married to someone who works for the company.) "We want to cycle the money right back into the community," she says.

The action is through a curtained doorway into the back room. Banquette seating and small tables nestle together to encourage conversation. Eventually, Lemon plans to have DJs and live music on the small stage in a back corner.

Bright art and antiques create an eclectic but warm vibe, while '90s R&B music plays on multiple wall monitors. The music isn't at dance volume, but it's too loud to encourage laptop work. Which is fine for Lemon, as she wants to encourage conversation.

"I was listening yesterday, and one table was talking about what they were going to do over the weekend, another table was talking about college football, and another was talking about politics and the election," Lemon says. "You can't tell me those conversations didn't overlap or they didn't hear each other. This allows people to jump into the conversation, or maybe just listen and learn something new." S

          Vancouver is not a white city      Cache   Translate Page      

In some commentary about our new council, ‘Vancouver’ has been referenced as though it was a dominantly white city – and hence the presumption of an underlying racism reflected in the complexion of council, where all but one member is white.  That reminded me to repost an item Price Tags ran in May:

Vancouver's New Majority

More than ever, facts matter – and the conclusions that follow from them.  If much of the electorate is presumed to vote on the basis of race, then why did not people of colour who comprise the majority, whether in Vancouver or Richmond, not do so in numbers that could have resulted in greater diversity?  Were there other factors that motivated them?  And does that justify interventions in how we vote or structure council sufficient to achieve some greater good based on identity?

Talking about race and ethnicity can be like treading across a field of land mines.  Emotions flare quickly, and damage can be done.  Civility, it seems, is as necessary as a willingness to confront our failures: a willingness to get along.

We’re the civitas.  We’re all in this together.

          Will Richmond City Council Scale Back Mansion Cropping on Best Farmland In Canada?      Cache   Translate Page      

Tuesday November 6 is a the mid-term election day in the USA but it is also a big day for the City of Richmond too, where the inaugural meeting of the new City Council will include looking at  residential development on agricultural land. 

And it’s not only Richmond under siege with mansion growing~it’s happening in California wine country too.

The last City of Richmond Council has been complicit in allowing the best agricultural lands in Canada supposedly protected under  the Agricultural Land Commission  to become private gated offshore owned estates.

The previous Council against the advice of their own staff endorsed the building of nearly 11,000 square foot mcmansions on farming lands.  That Council also allowed larger farm properties to not only have a huge house, but an additional 3,200 square foot house for the “help”.

The Province has capped housing at 5,382 square feet, and for a good reason, to ensure that land was kept for farming, and that farmers always had access to farmland. Using loopholes in existing legislation offshore buyers can escape paying the foreign buyers’ tax by purchasing agricultural lands, and developers get supernormal landlifts by turning farmland into private exclusive residential estates. The loser? Future food security close to metro markets, and the fact that farmers will never ever be able to own this farmland.

The Napa Register  outlines that in California’s Napa Valley mcmansions are also being built on prime farmland in five and ten-acre parcels. These “mansions” are half the size of the ones that Richmond City Council approved, being only 17 rooms and 6,700 square feet. But again these estates have the same impact, paving  over prime farmland for private residential pools and activities.

Price Tags Vancouver has previously reported that the exploitation of farmland for quick developer profit may be over. A majority of council (including returning Mayor Malcolm Brodie) are now working together to vote for   farmhouse size that is compliant with the Agricultural Land Commission’s guidelines.Scaling back to residential houses of 5,382 square feet gives agricultural land the chance to continue in farmland production as was intended. Price Tags will be watching on Tuesday to see Richmond City Council’s discussion and actions on keeping the best farmland in Canada in production for future generations.

Here’s a tweet from Councillor Harold Steves, a father of the Agricultural Land Reserve, farmer and environmentalist, as well as a long serving member of Richmond City Council on the impact of mansion cropping.

          ‘20 under 40’ Class of 2018—Shannon Beritzhoff      Cache   Translate Page      
11/06/2018
Spencer Ives

Shannon Beritzhoff, 31

Branch manager, First Alarm

Richmond, Calif.

First Alarm has five locations, and Shannon Beritzhoff is the branch manager of the company’s Richmond, Calif., branch. She handles a lot of the day-to-day operations of the branch, including billing, service, fire inspections and installations.

Beritzhoff came to work with First Alarm through the company’s acquisition of Sentry Alert in late 2010, a company she joined just after college. “I’ve now been here for nine and a half years. So, I didn’t know that this would be something that I would find. But, I’ve actually found it to be quite a challenge and overall I like the mission, which is keeping people and places safe,” she said.

Beritzhoff said she liked the challenge of meeting the needs for a specific customer, like a school system, and working with security manufacturers of existing or desired technologies and integrating it to meet the needs of the application.

“Although it wasn’t something that I set out to do, I certainly feel good that I’m involved in it,” she said.

Beritzhoff has been involved in a variety of associations, both local and industry-focused. She has been involved in a local BNI chapter. She was a council member of the Young Security Professionals for about two years—now called the Rising Leaders Group. “On a local level, last year I was on the … Marketing and Membership Committee for the California Alarm Association,” she said. “Then, for the East Bay Alarm Association … I was their secretary for two years.”

Attracting young and promising employees to the security industry isn’t the real problem, according to Beritzhoff. “It’s not a shortage of getting talented people through the door, it’s a shortage of keeping them.”

She joked that joining the industry is “four to life”—either professionals leave the industry in the first four years, or they’re hooked and stay in security for the rest of their career.

          Chitwood Announced as Candidate for International Mission Board’s Presidency      Cache   Translate Page      

IMB CHITWOOD SPEAKSRICHMOND, Virginia—The International Mission Board trustees’ Presidential Search Committee announced Tuesday, Nov. 6, that the committee will recommend Dr. Paul Chitwood, 48, to be elected as the 173-year-old entity’s 13th president.

RICHMOND, Virginia—The International Mission Board trustees’ Presidential Search Committee announced Tuesday, Nov. 6, that the committee will recommend Dr. Paul Chitwood, 48, to be elected as the 173-year-old entity’s 13th president. The vote to elect Chitwood is scheduled for the Nov. 15 plenary session during the Nov. 14-15 IMB board meeting in Richmond. 

Paul Chitwood, currently executive director of the Kentucky Baptist Convention, has been nominated as the 13th president of the Southern Baptist Convention International Mission Board.Paul Chitwood, currently executive director of the Kentucky Baptist Convention, has been nominated as the 13th president of the Southern Baptist Convention International Mission Board.A former board chairman of trustees for the Southern Baptist Convention's global mission organization, Chitwood currently serves as executive director of the Kentucky Baptist Convention, the state’s largest religious organization with 750,000 members in 2,400 churches and 70 associations. He has served in the role since 2011. 

For 18 years, Chitwood served as the pastor of local churches of varying sizes: First Baptist Church, Mt. Washington (2003-11), where he is a member; First Baptist Church of Somerset (1999-2003); First Baptist Church of Owenton (1995-99); and South Fork Baptist Church in Owenton (1993-95). As a pastor, his churches averaged giving 18.5 percent through the Cooperative Program.

During his pastorates, he served as chairman of the IMB trustees from 2008-10, part of his tenure as an IMB trustee from 2002-10. His overseas short-term mission involvement includes work in Brazil, Peru, India, China, South Africa, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Kenya, England, Spain, Germany and Haiti.

“A decade ago, I had the privilege of working with IMB President Jerry Rankin, Clyde Meador, Tom Elliff, and David Steverson to pen the IMB’s vision statement,” Chitwood said. “While the wording was and is important, it simply captures the vision God has graciously given us in His Word. It’s His vision, and the culmination of the work that He has been doing through His church and, since 1845, through Southern Baptists. Our vision is unchanged: a multitude from every language, people, tribe and nation knowing and worshiping our Lord Jesus Christ.”

‘We need him’

“It is so obvious that God has been preparing Paul for this role in so many ways,” said Dr. Rick Dunbar, chairman of IMB’s trustees and a member of the search committee from Madison, Mississippi. “Examine his work history, denominational experience, trustee background, educational history, leadership and team-building history; hear his heart for missions and the Lord, to be shared with the entire world; listen to his wife as she eagerly anticipates this role — and I think you will agree: We need him.”

Dunbar said the more the search committee talked, prayed and thought about Chitwood, “the more the entire committee has come together united in knowing he is God’s choice for our next president. He has the biblical foundation, a heart for missions and a proven track record of leading a big organization.” 

Dr. Chuck Pourciau, chairman of the Presidential Search Committee and senior pastor of Broadmoor Baptist Church in Shreveport, Louisiana, echoed Dunbar’s endorsement.

“Little did the Presidential Search Committee anticipate the meandering path that would be this search,” Pourciau said. “There were many twists and turns, but our commitment remained singular. It didn’t matter what path we took as long as we ended up in the right place. The right place is to locate and recommend to the trustees the person God had already chosen as the next leader of the International Mission Board.

“We are unanimously agreed that we have done just that in recommending to the IMB trustees Dr. Paul Chitwood as our next president. Dr. Chitwood is uniquely qualified to lead us into the next era of Southern Baptists reaching the nations. His missions heart and leadership acumen will serve us well in the years to come. I am eager to watch God work through him as he leads our international missions efforts. Yes, brothers and sisters, we did indeed arrive at the right place, and that right place is Dr. Paul Chitwood.”

‘Passionate about missions’

Paul ChitwoodPaul ChitwoodAs executive director of the Kentucky Baptist Convention, Chitwood has led the organization to a greater focus on strengthening local churches, planting new congregations, evangelizing the unchurched, and shifting more funding to international missions. He identified the need to move more Cooperative Program funds from state mission budgets to the Southern Baptist Convention budget and, ultimately, to the IMB budget. Last year, the convention reported more churches planted and growth in the number of Kentucky Baptists involved in volunteer mission work in Kentucky and around the world.

In consideration of leading the largest denominational missionary-sending body among American evangelicals, Chitwood has stated that he is committed to the organization’s next executive vice president being someone with significant mission-field experience. Chitwood has traveled extensively overseas in support of the IMB and worked alongside IMB missionaries, Dunbar said, which gives him a view into the missionary life and task but also makes him realize how much he will depend on men and women who have long-term overseas experience.

“I am very happy to join with the rest of the Presidential Search Committee in recommending that Dr. Paul Chitwood be approved as our next IMB president,” said Duane Ostem, an IMB field leader from Asia who served on the committee to provide a field-based perspective. “Dr. Chitwood is passionate about missions. He understands the workings of the IMB. He loves missionaries. His humble but strong leadership style will enable him to work well with our Richmond personnel, our field missionaries, and our Southern Baptist churches. His vision for the future will inspire and guide the IMB as we seek to make disciples of all nations.”

By Chitwood’s request, pending trustee approval, Dr. Clyde Meador will remain in the President’s Office as interim EVP during the transition. Meador has served as IMB interim president since Sept. 27, 2018.

“I have known Paul for 16 years and have consistently been impressed by and thankful for his commitment to the spread of the gospel to the ends of the earth, as well as his excellent leadership skills,” Meador said. “When Paul was serving as chairman of IMB trustees, he became an integral part of the leadership team, even to the point of having a significant part in crafting our vision statement that continues as a guide even today.

“Paul’s keen insight, leadership strength, commitment to the Great Commission, humility, and understanding of the lost world that lies before us, as well as unusual knowledge of the SBC, all combine to make him the ideal next president of IMB.”

‘A proven leader’

Chitwood was Kentucky Baptist Convention president in 2005-06; first vice president in 2003-04; and president of the state pastors’ conference in 2002. He was chairman of the SBC Committee on Nominations in 2015-16, and he also has served on several other state mission committees and in associational leadership committees. He has served as a trustee of Crossings Ministries, Sunrise Children’s Services, Kentucky Baptist Foundation, Oneida Baptist Institute, Baptist Haiti Mission, and Bridges to Nigeria.

He is an adjunct professor of leadership at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He previously has been an assistant professor of missions and evangelism at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, University of the Cumberlands and Boyce College.

A native of Jellico, Tenn., Chitwood is a 1992 graduate of Cumberland College (now University of the Cumberlands), where he has served as a trustee. He earned a master of divinity degree from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1995 and a doctorate from the seminary in 2001. He currently is pursuing a master’s degree in nonprofit administration from the Mendoza College of Business at the University of Notre Dame.

“As I have studied our IMB history and our past presidents, it is clear that God continues to build on the foundation laid down by so many,” Dunbar said. “I have served as a trustee under Jerry Rankin, Tom Elliff, David Platt and Clyde Meador. They are all different, but I believe that each was called to this position with a unique perspective and giftedness, and we thank God for all of them. Paul brings a unique perspective also. He is a proven leader, motivator, and mobilizer, he is committed to missions, and he gives his all to the pursuit of God’s will.”

Chitwood and his wife, Michelle, have been married for 25 years. Their family includes son Daniel, 22, and daughter-in-law Derrika; daughter Anna, 20; daughter Cai, 12; and a foster daughter, age 6, who they hope will soon join the family through adoption.

“Michelle, his wife, is fully committed to this role, and we see qualities in her that will compliment Paul in the president’s role,” Dunbar said. “She is eager to be an active part and sees this as a calling for her also. She embraces the challenges this role presents. She sees their family’s role not as a sacrifice but an opportunity. She will be a great asset to the IMB. You will love her.”

Transitional activity

On Feb. 12, 2018, former president David Platt asked trustees to begin their search for the next president of the mission entity. The trustees’ presidential search committee accepted presidential nominations through May 15, and a committee of more than a dozen trustees plus a former field leader have worked diligently since February. Trustees will vote on the recommendation of Chitwood as president during their plenary session, scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 15, at 10 a.m. EST. 

Prior to the vote, Southern Baptists will honor the appointment of new missionaries during a Sending Celebration in Richmond on Wednesday, Nov. 14, at 7 p.m. EST. Join the celebration via Livestream. Forty-two Southern Baptists will be presented as candidates for appointment at the Nov. 14 meeting.

          Charles Mingus 'Jazz in Detroit,' 1973 a new box set features nearly 4 hours of excellent material recorded on a single night.      Cache   Translate Page

Review: Charles Mingus’ ‘Jazz in Detroit’ Sheds Light on an Overlooked Era

A hefty new box set, recorded live in 1973, captures the legendary bassist at the helm of a short-lived yet top-tier band


“If you’re going by the bare facts alone, Jazz in Detroit / Strata Concert Gallery / 46 Selden is strictly for Charles Mingus completists. The new five-CD set includes nearly four hours of previously unreleased live material by the legendary bassist, all recorded on a single night in February 1973 for Detroit public radio. Unlike, say, John Coltrane’s recently unearthed Lost Album, Jazz in Detroit doesn’t date from a pivotal period in the leader’s career, feature an iconic lineup or introduce a wealth of unfamiliar repertoire.

But what looks marginal on paper turns out to be sheer joy coming out of the speakers, thanks in large part to Mingus’ lesser-known yet enormously gifted sidemen: tenor saxophonist John Stubblefield, trumpeter Joe Gardner, pianist Don Pullen and drummer Roy Brooks. Even Mingus aficionados likely won’t have heard this exact lineup, since only Pullen and Brooks worked with the bassist for more than a few months. Still, as heard in these performances of Mingus staples (“Pithecanthropus Erectus,” “Peggy’s Blue Skylight,” “Orange Was the Color of Her Dress, Then Blue Silk”) and a couple rarities, their grasp of the core elements of the bassist’s sound world — earthy swing; lush ensemble playing; roomy, impassioned solos — is extraordinary.


Pullen in particular nearly steals the show. The pianist would later become a star of the jazz vanguard, but at the time of Jazz in Detroit, one of his earliest documented performances with Mingus, he was still an up-and-comer. His prior experience playing everything from high-energy free improv to deep-pocket soul-jazz came in handy here. On “Celia,” a tender, melodious piece that dated back to 1957, his solo moves from crisp bebop to clanging, cyclonic expressionism and back, recalling the astounding technique of earlier Mingus pianist Jaki Byard. Later, underneath Stubblefield’s solo, the pianist tosses little firecrackers of abstraction the saxist’s way, urging his bandmate toward increasingly ecstatic peaks. And on a lengthy version of Duke Ellington’s “C Jam Blues,” he leads Mingus and Brooks into a wild free-jazz interlude.

The set’s more conventional moments are just as satisfying. “Dizzy Profile” — a piece apparently written for Dizzy Gillespie but not found on any other known Mingus recording — gives the players a chance to stretch out on an old-school ballad. Pullen plays a gorgeous rubato intro, leading into a dreamy, vocal-like theme led by Gardner. Solos by the trumpeter and Stubblefield show off each player’s timeless laid-back lyricism. Likewise, on the 26-minute “Noddin’ Ya Head Blues,” the whole band digs heartily into Mingus and Brooks’ slinky groove. (Late in the performance, the drummer puts down his sticks for a charmingly folksy turn on musical saw.) These pieces show that while many of Mingus’ peers had embraced plugged-in fusion by ’73, the bassist was still more than content with the fundamentals of acoustic small-group jazz.

Beyond the music itself, which sounds generally excellent for a live recording, Jazz in Detroit also has added historical value. A series of between-set radio segments interspersed with the music offer a window into the lively Detroit scene jazz at that time. We hear MC Bud Spangler, broadcasting from on site, giving directions to the Strata Concert Gallery — the home of Strata Records, an important local label of the period that DJ and Jazz in Detroit project coordinator Amir Abdullah has spent years researching and reviving — offering free admission to anyone who can bring a backup amp down to the show, bemoaning the sparse attendance and plugging upcoming installments in the Jazz in Detroit series, which also featured Herbie Hancock, Keith Jarrett and hometown luminaries like the Contemporary Jazz Quintet, for which Spangler was the sometime drummer.

Spangler also sits down for an extensive interview with Roy Brooks. Mingus’ then-drummer was a Detroit local and, as heard on this set, an outstanding player who by this time had also worked with jazz A-listers such as Wes Montgomery, Pharoah Sanders, Jackie McLean and Horace Silver. (Jazz in Detroit is sourced from Brooks’ own tapes, provided by the drummer’s widow, Hermine.) He describes the challenge of performing Mingus’ “very demanding” music — no doubt more so because Brooks was stepping into a role most often occupied by the bassist’s longtime drummer and musical soulmate Dannie Richmond — and the evolving audience for jazz at the time, marked by an influx of young fans who “a couple of years ago were really into the acid-rock scene.” His generally optimistic tone runs counter to the standard wisdom that jazz was on the rocks in the early Seventies.

This supplemental material only amplifies the sense that Jazz in Detroit is a niche document. As a slice of life, though, shedding light on both Mingus’ day-to-day activities during an overlooked period and the practice of jazz outside the New York limelight, it’s a treasure. Beyond the context, the music speaks for itself. Even a listener totally unfamiliar with Mingus, not to mention his undervalued collaborators, could jump into Jazz in Detroit‘s time machine and feel right at home in the bassist’s rich musical universe.”

          Amazon considers New York, Virginia amid reports of HQ split      Cache   Translate Page      

NEW YORK — After a yearlong search for a second home, Amazon is now reportedly looking to build offices in two cities instead of one, a surprise move that could still have a major impact on the communities it ultimately selects.

New York's Long Island City as well as Crystal City in northern Virginia have emerged as the front runners, according to sources familiar with the talks with Amazon.

Selecting those areas would bring more jobs to places that already have plenty. Jed Kolko, the chief economist at job site Indeed, said that choosing New York and the D.C. area would "be a much less radical move than many imagined" and another example of "rich places getting richer."

The company had originally promised to bring 50,000 new high-paying jobs to one location, which founder and CEO Jeff Bezos said would be "a full equal" to its Seattle home base. Amazon may now split those jobs equally between two locations, The Wall Street Journal reported, with each getting 25,000.

That would beg the question of whether the new locations would be headquarters at all. Kolko said a headquarters is "where the decision makers are," but it's unclear where Amazon's executives — such as Bezos — would spend much of their time. If Amazon decides to split the 50,000 workers in two places, each of those offices would be smaller than Seattle's, which has more than 40,000 employees.

Virginia officials and some state lawmakers were recently briefed by the head of the state's economic development office that Amazon was considering splitting up its second headquarters, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Officials in Virginia believe there's a strong likelihood Amazon will pick Crystal City as one of its sites, but the company has not said anything definitive, according to the person, who was not authorized to speak on the record.

"They're a real secretive company," the person said.

One of the other areas the online retail giant is considering is Long Island City, according to a source familiar with the talks. Across the East River from midtown Manhattan, Long Island City is a longtime industrial and transportation hub that has become a fast-growing neighborhood of riverfront high-rises and redeveloped warehouses, with an enduring industrial foothold and burgeoning arts and tech scenes.

Amazon has been tight-lipped about the process and declined to comment on the latest news. There's been intense competition to win over the company, with some throwing around billions of dollars in tax incentives. Amazon kicked off its hunt for a second headquarters in September 2017, initially receiving 238 proposals before narrowing the list to 20 in January.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo met two weeks ago with Amazon officials in his New York City offices, according to the source, who was not authorized to discuss the negotiations and spoke on condition of anonymity. Cuomo offered to travel to Amazon's Seattle hometown to continue talks, the source said.

On Tuesday, Cuomo told reporters that Amazon is looking at Long Island City, but didn't say if it was a finalist. He said winning over Amazon would give an economic boost to the entire state, and joked that he was willing to change his name to "Amazon Cuomo" to lure the company.

An estimated 135,000 or more people live in Long Island City and neighboring Sunnyside and Woodside, and the median household makes about $63,500 a year, a bit higher than the citywide median, according to New York University's Furman Center housing and urban policy think tank. About 40 percent of people over 25 in the Long Island City area have a bachelor's or higher degree, slightly above the citywide rate, the Furman Center's data shows.

The New York Times reported Monday that Amazon is finalizing deals to locate to Long Island City and the Crystal City section of Arlington, Virginia, just outside Washington, D.C. The Wall Street Journal, which first reported on the possible plan to split the headquarters between two cities, said Dallas is also still a contender. Both newspapers cited unnamed people familiar with the decision-making process.

A spokesman for the Dallas Regional Chamber declined to comment.

Long Island City and Crystal City would meet Amazon's requirements for a new locale: Both are near metropolitan areas with more than a million people, have nearby international airports, direct access to mass transit and have room for the company to expand.

Other locations that were on Amazon's list of 20 either declined to comment or said they haven't heard from the online retailer.

Jay Ash, the economic development chief in Massachusetts, said Tuesday that he's had "no recent contact" with Amazon about a headquarters in Boston, but his office is still talking with the company about other opportunities. Earlier this year, Amazon unveiled plans for an office expansion in Boston's Seaport District, promising 2,000 new technology jobs by 2021 in fields including machine learning and robotics.

Amazon has said it could spend more than $5 billion on the new headquarters over the next 17 years, about matching the size of its current home in Seattle, which has 33 buildings and 23 restaurants.

The company already employs more than 600,000 worldwide. That's expected to increase as it builds more warehouses across the country to keep up with online orders. Amazon recently announced that it would pay all its workers at least $15 an hour, but the employees at its second headquarters will be paid a lot more — an average of more than $100,000 a year.

Earlier this month, Bezos said during an on-stage interview in New York that the final decision will come down to intuition.

"You immerse yourself in that data, but then you make that decision with your heart," he said.

          Rajin Bangun Pagi, Risiko Kanker Payudara 48 Persen Lebih Rendah      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta Bersyukurlah jika Anda adalah orang yang rajin bangun pagi. Sebuah penelitian menemukan, mereka yang tergolong sebagai morning person, cenderung tidak mengembangkan kanker payudara daripada mereka suka berkegiatan di malam hari.

Mengutip dari Metro.co.uk pada Rabu (7/11/2018), studi di University of Bristol, Inggris, membandingkan ratusan ribu data. Mereka menemukan bahwa mereka yang rajin bangun pagi, cenderung berisiko kanker payudara 40 sampai 48 persen lebih rendah.

Penelitian tersebut melaporkan bahwa kebiasaan bangun pagi sebagian diturunkan secara genetika. Sehingga risiko keturunan tersebut terdengar masuk akal.

Sulit bagi Anda untuk bangun pagi jika sudah terlalu sering begadang. Tergantung dari bagaimana ritme sirkadian tubuh Anda. 

 

Simak juga video menarik berikut ini:

 

Mutasi gen

Dalam penelitian sebelumnya, mereka yang hobi begadang hingga mendapat julukan burung hantu, memiliki mutasi gen yang menyebabkan jam tubuh mereka berjalan dengan berbeda.

Mereka pergi tidur dan bangun lebih lambat dari biasanya. Dalam penelitian terbaru, hal itu mungkin terkait dengan peningkatkan risiko kanker payudara pada orang yang hobi begadang.

"Menggunakan varian genetika yang terkait dengan preferensi seseorang soal pagi atau malam, durasi tidur, dan insomnia, kami menyelidiki apakah ciri-ciri tidur ini memiliki kontribusi kausal terhadap risiko pengembangan kanker payudara," kata pimpinan ilmuwan Dr. Rebecca Richmond.

 

Tidur berlebihan sama buruknya

Walaupun begitu, masih harus dilakukan penelitian lebih lanjut tentang mekanisme yang memperkuat hasil temuan ini.

"Kami ingin melakukan penelitian lebih lanjut untuk menyelidiki mekanisme yang mendukung hasil ini. Karena perkiraan yang diperoleh berdasarkan pertanyaan yang berkaitan dengan preferensi pagi atau malam, daripada apakah orang-orang bangun lebih awal atau lebih lambat pada hari itu," tambahnya.

Sehingga, mengubah kebiasaan Anda mungkin tidak terkait dengan risiko kanker payudara. Bahkan, bisa lebih kompleks dari itu.

Menariknya, penelitian ini juga menemukan dengan tidur lebih lama tidak selalu lebih baik. Analisis menunjukkan, wanita yang tidur lebih lama dari tujuh hingga delapan jam meningkatkan peluang terdiagnosis dengan kanker payudara sebesar 20 persen per jamnya.

          Crystal City Arlington as Amazon one-half of HQ2 | Part 2: Leveraging Amazon's entrance for complementary economic development improvements      Cache   Translate Page      
-- "Crystal City Arlington as Amazon one-half of HQ2 | Part 1: General + Housing impact"
-- "Crystal City Arlington as Amazon one-half of HQ2 | Part 3: Leveraging Amazon's entrance for complementary transit network improvements" (to come)
=====

Last year, in "Setting the stage for the Purple Line light rail line to be an overwhelming success Part 1 | simultaneously introduce improvements to other elements of the transit network" and "Using the Silver Line as the priming event, what would a transit network improvement program look like for NoVA?" I argued that we could do a lot better in leveraging big investments in new transit investment to drive complementary improvements across the transit network as well as other economic development initiatives.

Paul Meissner created a "fantasy map" illustrating some of these ideas.
Conceptual Future integrated rail transit service network for the Washington DC National Capitol Region. Design by Paul J. Meissner.  Concept by Richard Layman and Paul Meissner.
Conceptual Future integrated rail transit service network for the Washington DC National Capitol Region. Design by Paul J. Meissner. Concept by Richard Layman and Paul Meissner.


But to achieve something like that requires purposive and simultaneous planning, as a form of what I am now calling "Transformational Projects Action Planning" ("Why can't the "Bilbao Effect" be reproduced? | Bilbao as an example of Transformational Projects Action Planning."

Given the talk that Amazon will open a new headquarters campus in Crystal City, I'd argue that this should be used to drive other improvements, not just within Arlington specifically, but across the metropolitan area.  Although while the economic development impact will be big, it's not so huge that it can "change everything," especially through trickle down effects.

Think of Amazon's coming as a priming event, more as an excuse to be visionary and do some good things in a complementary way.  Part 2, this piece, briefly outlines economic development opportunities, and Part 3 focuses on transit network improvements.

Economic development opportunities

In the Purple Line series, articles on New Carrollton ("Part 4 |   Making over New Carrollton as a transit-centric urban center and Prince George's County's "New Downtown"") and Silver Spring ("PL #5: Creating a Silver Spring "Sustainable Mobility District | Part 1: Setting the stage") discussed how the Purple Line light rail program could be leveraged to drive neighborhood and commercial district revitalization in those communities.

While Arlington has been doing pretty well for years because of its embrace of transit oriented development, particularly in the Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor, it is facing budget issues ("Arlington manager warns of higher taxes, more service cuts," Washington Post) because of high commercial vacancy and competition from nearby submarkets in Alexandria and Fairfax County that have lower cost property.

Crystal City has languished as military installation consolidation shifted agencies elsewhere and Columbia Pike lost its spark when in 2014 Arlington cancelled plans to build a streetcar there  ("Arlington officials halt efforts on streetcars for Columbia Pike, Crystal City," Post).

But it has one of the highest used Metrorail stations outside of the center city, as well as rail service via the Virginia Railway Express and it's about one mile from National Airport, and well connected via the Interstate Highway system.

Building wrapped with colorful treatment in Crystal City and Metrorail/VRE sign
And the way that suburban business districts like Crystal City have been working to activate what would be very drab places without the addition of a big dose of creativity ("'Crystal City is so cool': Maybe, but it's not quite D.C.'s Brooklyn," Washington Post; "JBG Smith wraps Crystal City buildings," Washington Business Journal) proves that innovation is not exclusively a center city phenomenon.  Crystal City is helped by its closer-in location, just across the river from the center city.

The Crystal City Business Improvement District is one of the more innovative BIDs in the region, maybe because they have to work harder because they aren't in DC proper.

And Southern Fairfax County, underserved by Metrorail and shaped by automobile-centric land use paradigms, lags other parts of the county that are better connected to rail transit. Landing Amazon should be used to give a renewed push to ongoing revitalization initiatives.

1.  The Route 1 Corridor in Arlington.  Obviously, the Crystal City/Potomac Yard area will get the bulk of the new business.  This will help absorb vacant space existing in CC and drive demand for new construction on fallow and underutilized land including in Pentagon City and Potomac Yard, which also includes part of Alexandria. 

Like how Signature Theatre has co-located with the Shirlington Library, maybe Arlington could get Amazon to open a cinema where like IFC in New York City, it could be used to show and premiere Amazon television and movie streaming programs.  Fairfax has developed a kind of similar program with Capital One and a theatre facility on their new campus that is being developed there ("Fairfax Board signs off on Capital One's big venue," Washington Business Journal).

2.  Alexandria's Old Town and Waterfront.  There's been a lot of handwringing in Alexandria over competition from new/renewed waterfront districts in DC, the Wharf in Southwest and the Navy Yard in Southeast, along with the ongoing expansion of the National Harbor complex in Prince George's County.
King Street Trolley bus, Alexandria Virginia
Proximity to Crystal City of the city's waterfront district--Arlington doesn't have much in the way of accessible waterfront outside of park space--and the area's most substantive "traditional commercial district" outside of Georgetown in DC provides new economic energy for the city, even though attempts to be more proactive thus far have languished ("Alexandria abandons its Old Town BID quest," Washington Business Journal).

But this energy can be harnessed elsewhere and throughout the city, such as in the Eisenhower district.

3.  Rosslyn/Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor.  Rosslyn will get spillover energy from its proximity to Crystal City.  Like CC, Rosslyn markets itself as an "in DC neighborhood that is in Virginia."  Plans to make the district over in terms of more 21st century urban design friendly techniques will get a boost.

Similarly the R-B Corridor will get renewed life, in the face of the National Science Foundation is decamping for Alexandria ("A follow up example with regard to Metropolitan Revolutions: the National Science Foundation moving to Alexandria," 2013).

4.  Shirlington.  This Arlington neighborhood will get a boost too, despite having lost some restaurants and other businesses more recently. It doesn't have Metrorail service, but Arlington has worked hard to give the district good bus transit connections, built a nice bus station there, etc.

5.  Columbia Pike.  CP took a definite hit when Arlington cancelled plans to build a streetcar line there.  But with an Amazon bump, the area will likely take off because relatively speaking, land there is still cheaper, right now.  Soon enough, not so much.

6. Richmond Highway Corridor, Fairfax County.  Economically, this area lags compared to much of Fairfax County, despite its proximity to Fort Belvoir.  But lower cost of land could help it land new development, especially given ongoing activity in the area within the transit shed of the Huntington Yellow Line Station, which on the Alexandria side, is where the National Science Foundation is relocating.

-- "Fairfax County signs off on Richmond Highway overhaul," Washington Business Journal

7.  DC's L'Enfant Plaza area.  For the most part, DC won't see much in the way of "new development" from Amazon, but desire to live in the city, but being located three stops away from Crystal City via the Metrorail's Yellow Line without having to transfer could drive more demand for housing in the area around the L'Enfant Plaza Metrorail station.

Dedicated shuttle bus for the Wharf District between the Southwest Waterfront and L'Enfant Plaza Metrorail StationThat could help drive forward changes proposed in the Southwest Ecodistrict land use plan, along with other investments such as the soon to open Children's Museum and the relocation of the International Spy Museum, alongside development of the new "Wharf" district on the Southwest Waterfront, which is a short walk or free bus ride to the L'Enfant Metrorail station..

8.  Navy Yard/Capitol Riverfront.  Demand could extend outward from the L'Enfant area a bit to the new and somewhat adjacent Audi Field soccer district area between The Wharf and the Navy Yard area as well as to the Navy Yard.  But it's a bit further away via Metrorail and requires a transfer at L'Enfant from either the Southwest Waterfront station on the Blue/Orange/Silver Lines or the Navy Yard Station on the Green Line.

          Repost : Brother Andre Marie MICM and a priest of the Institute of Christ the King do not mention Vatican Council II being in harmony with extra ecclesiam nulla salus.      Cache   Translate Page      

NOVEMBER 17, 2017

Brother Andre Marie MICM and a priest of the Institute of Christ the King do not mention Vatican Council II being in harmony with extra ecclesiam nulla salus.


Brother Andre Marie MICM  has written an article onextra ecclesiam nulla salus after a very long time and again there is no mention of Vatican Council II.1
He recommends the video of a priest of the Institute of Christ the King.The priest also does not mention Vatican Council II being in harmony with extra ecclesiam nulla salus.

The Superiors at the St. Benedict Centers, at Still River and Richmond, N.H have been recognized by the Church and they are not affirming Vatican Council II in harmony with the strict interpretation of the dogma EENS. Instead they are allowing Vatican Council II to be seen as a rupture with Tradition and this is acceptable for the bishops in New England...2

Neither does the priest of the traditionalist Institute of Christ the King nor Brother Andre Marie and the St.Benedict Centers, state, that Vatican Council II is not a development with EENS as it was known to the missionaries in the 16th century. Instead they agree with Pope Benedict. Vatican Council II is a rupture with EENS.Of course only with the use of the false premise, which Pope Benedcit encouraged in theology.

Communities of Fr.Leonard Feeney in the USA when they interpret Vatican Council II with the irrational premise deny the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus.

The Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary,St.Benedict Center, Still River which last month was given granted canonical status negate the dogma EENS( Feeneyite) with Vatican Council II interpreted with the premise.
The communities of Fr.Leonard Feeney in the USA are denying the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus(EENS) as it was interpreted over the centuries.When they interpret Vatican Council II, with the irrational premise then the Council is a rupture with the dogam extra ecclesiam nulla salus as it was known to Fr. Leonard Feeney. 3

Instead Brother Andre Marie and the traditionalist priest could have said that Vatican Council II isFeeneyite. It is in line with EENS as it wasinterpreted in the 16th century. So Pope Benedict was wrong. 

If they announce LG 16( invincible ignorance), LG 14( baptism, of desire) etc refer to hypothetical cases only their bishops will not be pleased.For then Vatican Council II will not be ' a development' .

So by omitting the subject of Vatican Council II in his article, Brother Andre Marie  is telling his bishop, the two popes, the cardinals and the Jewish Leftthat he rejects the old exclusivistecclesiology of the Church just  as they do.He does not interpret LG 16 as referring to invisible people in 2017.So he supports the newecclesiology which is s rupture with the Syllabus of Errors on ecumenism and non Christian religions.

Superiors at St. Benedict Centers, Still River and Richmond, N.H do not affirm Vatican Council II in harmony with the strict interpretation of the dogma EENS

The St.Benedict Centers have simply to state the obvious. But then they will be in opposition to their liberal bishops who understand Vatican Council II like Mons.Joseph Clifford Fenton, Fr.William Most, Fr.John Hardon and Ludwig Ott.The two popes are also Cushingites.

I do not condemn the traditionalists even though they use a false theology and an irrational philosophy. The error can be corrected.It is not something fixed and permanent error.However today this is also the false interpretation of the liberals and the Masons.

Undeterred by rain and lines, Richmond voters turn out in high numbers. By 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, more than 700 voters from precinct 204 had already cast their ballots at First Baptist Church. According to the city registrar’s office, that precinct saw 865 ballots in the 2014 midterms and 1,856 in the 2016 presidential election.

For some, it’s the first time voting for any office other than the president. Sahba Saravi, a 25-year-old law student recalls the political landscape when she was younger.

“When Obama first became president I was still in high school and didn’t really understand what was going on, but later I learned that the House blocked a lot of things that he wanted to do, and I find that that’s not happening in our current situation as much as we would like,” she says, adding that she pays more attention to national politics now. “If I can do my part in it then I’m going to.”

Saravi says she doesn’t identify with one party or the other, but today she voted for the Democrats on her ballot: Tim Kaine for Senator and Don McEachin for the 4th District.

Omi Eaddie, who’s 38 and works for a nonprofit, says she always votes in midterms, but “everything happening in the world right now” made her especially motivated to come out on this drizzly morning.

“People think smaller elections don’t matter,” Eaddie says. “But I’m even more inclined to vote now. Every little vote counts.”

As someone who’s made her career in the nonprofit sector and notes that national and state policies often impact her work, Eaddie says she wants “people in office that respect [her] as a working person.”

Derek Lewis, 49, voted for one Republican and one write-in.

“I think it’s our privilege and responsibility to vote,” he says. “There are a lot of people in the world who don’t have the opportunity to vote.”

How saving even unsung historic buildings keeps the city’s character intact.

Our town is nothing if not giddy these days with each announcement of a planning or development scheme. Vision statements and building starts percolate daily from many directions, or so it seems. A James River Park System plan, revising the downtown plan, a proposal to eliminate Monroe Ward's surface parking lots, the $1.4 billion dollar Coliseum-Navy Hill redevelopment, replacing the Diamond, establishing a historic district in Blackwell, and a sweeping, updated master plan for Virginia Commonwealth University are all in the works.

Then there are ideas to improve the Jefferson Davis Highway corridor, build new housing on the site of old Armstrong High School, develop a medical building at the former Westhampton School, and conducting an international design competition for re-imagining Confederate-infused Monument Avenue.

Scott's Addition and Manchester continue to blossom, while along Brookland Park Boulevard and its vicinity, developers are shifting pedestrian-scaled projects into gear. Meanwhile building cranes loom over downtown, Jackson Ward and the flood wall on both sides of the river. Newly topped-off buildings punctuate the Manchester and Financial District skylines as site plans are flying off drawing boards for taller residential buildings along the path of the Pulse.

And this just in: Public input from a recent Richmond Times-Dispatch public square meeting included one on the 75 item wish list: to ramp up the city's population to 500,000.

Whew.

But here's the thing, in our rush to be macro — that is, taller, faster, denser, more intensive and more inclusive — we need to keep a cautious and protective focus on the micro. That entails holding tightly to the things that make Richmond, well, Richmond.

Of course, a list of what those things entail varies depending on whom you ask, but many agree that Richmond is predisposed to conservatism, for better or worse. This go-slowly attitude means that the region is emerging from some relatively sleepy decades, compared to the go-go, boom-boom aggressiveness of such cities to the south as Charlotte, Atlanta and Miami. This also means that Richmond has maintained much of the architectural soul of what makes it special, even quirky. Many of our old and newer historic neighborhoods, from Church Hill and Woodland Heights to Barton Heights, Hermitage Road and Lakeside to Scott's Addition, have never looked better.

However, disturbing things can accompany so-called progress, even in a city that proceeds with caution.

While the dizzying growth of VCU is, on balance, positive, the population and physical expansion have presented some cautionary situations. In Oregon Hill, after years of attempting to balance town vs. gown dynamics while repenting for the sins of demolishing hundreds of houses for the Downtown Expressway, for instance, something unfortunate occurred recently. This past spring, a solidly built row of modest but dignified and handsome antebellum buildings in the 800 block of West Cary Street was demolished. It is being replaced with a 100-unit apartment building — providing needed housing, of course — but offering zilch in architectural interest in exchange for the loss. With a modicum of imagination, and another pass or two at tweaking the design, the irreplaceable historic structures could have been woven into the plan, maintaining a link to the neighborhood's past and applying historic preservation tax credits to financing the project. It would have been the right thing to do.

While the Pulse bus system has added new visual energy to a 7-mile urban and suburban corridor from Willow Lawn to Rocketts Landing, planners are seeking to intensify housing along the route with taller buildings within a zone that planners are calling a "transit-oriented nodal district."

It didn't take long for one developer to announce his concept for building a 12-story chain hotel a block north of the 17th Street Farmers' Market at 127 N. 17th Street. Sadly, this would inject the first high-rise building into the tissue of Shockoe Bottom, a district of old, low-lying buildings, mostly fewer than five stories. It is one of our city's most evocative places, and probably sacred as well, with the still-untapped reservoir of painful stories to be researched and told regarding decades of slave trading that occurred here.

The developer of the proposed hotel did offer an extenuating olive branch: His intent is to weave the century-old Weiman's Bakery building that occupies the site into the plan — and gain historic tax credits for the gesture. Would that other developers showed the same, well, if in not quite sensitivity, at least savvy.

Three projects now in the works provide similar cases.

Arguments are back and forth on the fate of the Intermediate Terminal No. 3 near Rocketts Landing. Stone Brewing Co. had promised to convert the concrete warehouse, built in 1939, into a destination pub and restaurant at the hulking remnant from Richmond's time as a transfer point for sugar from the Caribbean. But it reneged, citing the structure's instability. Meanwhile opposing lines have been drawn to whether the building is even historic or not.

Since officials at the state's Department of Historic Resources withheld its approval of a historic designation, corporate and city officials consider this a pass.

"The complex has lost integrity of setting, design, materials, workmanship, feeling and appreciation," weighed in another local historian, "Interpreting and advancing the story of the commercial shipping history in Richmond does not hinge on salvaging a structure that rests in a flood plain and is beset by numerous structural issues. The history of Rockets Landing and its environs can be told eloquently and artfully absent this decaying building."

But in determining what is historic we might apply United States Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart's 1964 definition of pornography to what is old and historic: "I know it when I see it." If the Intermediate Terminal is the last survivor of what were once scores of riverfront buildings serving Richmond's maritime glory days, come on folks, it's historic.

And why would we even consider tearing down this 79-year-old commercial building? Restored, or left as a glorious empty vessel, it can be the building block, if not centerpiece, of whatever Stone Brewing might build nearby. Rather than either or, let's have old and new.

Consider. One reason our community has been slow to appropriately develop a visual narrative of the slave trade in Shockoe Bottom is that only one building still stands related to the heinous business. Old and historic buildings, architecturally distinguished or not, can be critical starting points when seeking to link the present and past. Lose the buildings and we lose that connection.

The same holds true of a threatened, 168-year-old building on West Cary Street near Nansemond Street that most recently housed a popular restaurant, Carytown Burger & Fries. The general consensus has long been that this worthy and solid, if battered, brick structure was a toll house during much of the 19th century when Cary was named the Westham Plank Road. The rustic highway, laid in dirt and wooden boards, connected Richmond with points west to the mountains along the James River.

Whether or not the toll taker actually lived here, is no big deal here in the 21st century. Today, it is the oldest house in the Museum District and more solid than most of the mid-20th centuries buildings that surround it. The historic resources department has decreed that it's not distinguished enough to receive historic designation. Maybe not, but it's at least 178 years old, for crying out loud. We're not going to have any more like it. Come on, save the darn building. The developer's description of the architectural plan for the proposed complex — a grocery store, parking deck and strip of shops— waxes poetic about how it will fit in with the historic aspects of Carytown. Such banter is cringe-worthy in the face of the loss of this tiny survivor of an important chapter in the neighborhood's history.

Similar goofiness is afoot in Scott's Addition.

It's shocking that a new apartment complex planned for Scott's Addition at West Broad and Summit calls for demolishing an architecturally elegant former SunTrust branch bank now on the site. The one-story, 10,000-square-foot building, built in 1948, is a top-notch colonial revival building that was built on the eve of modernism in Richmond. Its doorways and windows are handsome and its red bricks are laid in the Flemish bond pattern. If one squinted, it wouldn't be hard to imagine this as a house in Windsor Farms or Westmoreland Place where it would fetch $2 million and upwards. In fact, it was probably designed to catch the eye and serve folks who lived in those and less grand West End neighborhoods.

But despite it being a contributing historic structure to the official Scott's Addition Historic District, it is considered expendable to make way for a 166-unit apartment complex. The Summit, from what one can tell from a published rendering, has all the heft and charm of an Ocean City, Maryland, motel, complete with the name of the complex displayed in stacked letters on a prominent exterior wall.

Along with the glorious Handcraft Cleaners Building, a moderne masterwork, and the Blue Bee Cidery, with its rusticated cobblestone walls, this former bank is among the handsomest buildings in Scott's Addition. So why is it being demolished?

Probably for lack of effort or thought. Like the doomed, so-called toll house in Carytown, this classical gem, for some the gold standard in what Richmond domestic-scaled architecture is all about, could easily have been woven into the fabric of the larger development — and add grace notes to an otherwise ordinary design.

I know. We can't save everything. But that's the point: In the case of the Intermediate Terminal and the toll keeper's house everything else is gone. They are sole survivors. The former branch bank, that channels the spirit of Sir Christopher Wren, a late Renaissance English architect, is a standout because it is 180 degrees different from the stash of undistinguished midcentury modern warehouses that populate most of Scott's Addition. Ironically, it is the rare architectural outlier in a neighborhood that prides itself on being über cool.

These and other survivors and outliers are at risk. We shouldn't sacrifice what's left of our distinctive architectural patrimony for a transit-oriented nodal district. S


          Shovels in the Ground      Cache   Translate Page      
A groundbreaking ceremony was held for new mixed-income development, Church Hill North, but public housing residents remain skeptical.

Sharon Herman has lived in public housing for more than 20 years. She and her husband raised their two daughters in Creighton Court, and the couple still share a unit in the nearly 70-year-old housing community in the city's East End. They're empty nesters now, and despite recent issues with rats, corroded pipes and mold behind the washing machine, their apartment still serves as a home base for their kids, grandkids and great-grandkids, plus neighbors who are practically family.

"I want my grandkids and my great-grandkids to see that just because you live in public housing, you do not have to be ghetto, a lower-class citizen," Herman says. "And that's a stereotype for all my years doing what I do in public housing. It's been my work, to not be seen in that aspect, because there's a lot of good in Creighton."

Her face is a familiar one, judging by the number of people who stop by her table to say hello while she's enjoying a muffin and a mocha at the Front Porch Cafe. She considers herself a free spirit, and she's a relentless force behind efforts to engage and uplift the Creighton community. She's a member of the tenant council, serving as a liaison between residents and the Richmond Redevelopment and Housing Authority for years, and she jokes that while she never before envisioned herself in an elected position, now she can't get out. Nor does she want to.

"I'm one of the chosen few that is called to action," she says. "I don't sit back and wait for it to happen. If it needs to be done, somebody's gotta do it, and nine times out of 10, it's me."

Herman had mixed feelings last Tuesday as she sat underneath a tent on the site of her alma mater for a groundbreaking ceremony. In partnership with a private Boston-based developer called the Community Builders, the housing authority has been promising a new mixed-income community, Church Hill North, at the site of the old Armstrong High School for years. The first phase of the development, with a price tag of $26 million, will have 105 units — of those, 60 will be available for seniors and families currently living in Creighton. Funding snafus and leadership turnover at the authority delayed construction, and Herman says residents, who feel jerked around by it, lost confidence in the project long ago.

Speakers at last week's ceremony expressed a renewed sense of hope, and while Herman shared some of that hope, it came with a dose of skepticism. She's heard it all before, she says, and she knows her neighbors have too.

"I felt good in one aspect," she says after the ceremony. "What they said they were going to do, I hope they will do and we'll see a better way of life."

Longtime Creighton resident Evelyn Givens shares Herman's skepticism.

"I have begun to lose hope," she says. "I'll see hope again, not when they put that shovel in the ground, but when I see the first brick go down. Then my eyes will open."

A fear among residents is that when and if new housing does become available, some will get left behind. Only those in good standing with the housing authority, which entails being up-to-date on rent and compliant with all lease requirements, qualify to transition out of Creighton. According to Elaine Summerfield of Richmond Opportunities, that's why family transition coaches begin working with residents "well before shovels hit the ground" on new housing developments available to them.

Summerfield says coaches have already assisted three families in their moves from Creighton to the Apartments at Kingsridge, a development in Henrico County with 18 project-based vouchers. Choice is at the center of the work of Summerfield's group, and coaches work with residents to help them understand all their options. One person who worked with a transition coach, she says, recently bought a home through Habitat for Humanity.

But its transition team is small, and the caseload continues to grow.

"Some people are very optimistic and excited about the possibilities," Summerfield says of Creighton residents. "Others have been disillusioned and do not have confidence that the RRHA and its partners can pull off what is envisioned."

Mayor Levar Stoney, who spoke with emphatic optimism at last week's event, says he believes in a guaranteed one-for-one replacement, and he urged residents to trust the process and keep the faith.
Juan Powell, a Washington-based development director with the Community Builders, addresses some of those concerns after last week's groundbreaking.

"We understand the level of frustration, distrust and skepticism felt by residents in communities that often feel neglected," Powell says in an email. "Most of those emotions are based upon decades of seeing development take place in other parts of their cities, but not their own. And when development does take place, it is often at the expense of the initial residents."

Powell says work on the first round of phase one, which will include 45 units, began in mid-October and is expected to take about a year. The rest of phase one, with 60 units, will be complete by December 2019.

"We are proud of our history of going into challenging neighborhoods and providing affordable housing in a manner that provides additional options to the residents," he says. "We can demonstrate that we are committed to playing a major role in creating a new paradigm for residents of Richmond that have not had sufficient options." S

Jewish leaders reflect on the recent attack at a Pittsburgh synagogue

Anti-Semitism isn't new to Rabbi Dovid Asher. He recalls visiting an amusement park as a young teenager and locking eyes with a stranger who took in his yarmulke and flipped him a swift, demonstrative middle finger. The experience was shocking and traumatic, he says, but stories passed down in his family were more impactful.

His grandmother made it out of Nazi Germany right before Kristallnacht in 1938. Tickets for passage to America were limited, and Asher says his grandmother always felt responsible for the death of her younger sister, who later died in Auschwitz.

"Just hearing my grandmother's stories, seeing the pain she was going through and thinking of her sister's murder in Auschwitz, that's all I ever needed in terms of understanding the evil of anti-semitism," Asher says. "I think she'd be beside herself, seeing how anti-Semitism has kind of risen again, when not so long ago it terrorized the Jewish community worldwide."

Like religious leaders across the country, Asher has spent the last week reflecting on the Oct. 27 shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, which left 11 dead and several more injured. He was one of several Jewish clergy at a vigil in Richmond three days after the shooting, which more than 1,000 people attended. Asher, who grew up in Pennsylvania and came to Richmond in 2011 to lead the congregation at Keneseth Beth Israel, is careful and intentional with his words. He's hesitant to politicize the attack and its aftermath, partially in recognition of shiva, the week-long period of mourning in Jewish culture. During those first seven days, it's customary for observant Jews to sit with their grief and allow themselves to experience the pain in its entirety.

"I think we need to celebrate the lives and to appreciate the pain of the families," Asher says. "I think we need to wait a little bit before we publicly come out and have this conversation." That said, Asher is "terribly concerned about the polarization of this country" and wants to see more unification efforts from elected officials.

Rabbi Michael Knopf of Temple Beth-El, who was named one of Style Weekly's Top 40 Under 40 in 2017, echoes that sentiment, and is more forthcoming on the political front. Like his colleague across town, he's mindful that his congregation represents both ends of the political spectrum and his job is not one of a pundit. But mixed in with sadness and grief following the shooting is also anger and frustration with a climate that he says has emboldened people with hateful ideologies.

"It's really hard for me to separate what happened in Pittsburgh from what happened in Charlottesville last summer," Knopf explains. "In particular what happened when the president responded the way he did. White supremacists in this country had never had a bigger gift and endorsement than that."

That gift, he says, has long-lasting ramifications. The president's rhetoric around immigrants has normalized bigotry and white nationalism, he says, and it's no coincidence that the shooting happened days after known foes of the president received suspicious packages in the mail, or during a time of charged rhetoric around a group of immigrants heading toward the southern border. It's about more than discrimination against people of the Jewish faith, he says.

"It's all interconnected, and it stems from a really ugly campaign of vilifying anyone who could be perceived as other," he says. "We need to stand up for all targeted communities."

Safety is a priority for both rabbis, and there's frustration around the reality that they have to balance keeping their congregants safe without negatively impacting the quality of their work and services.

"We need to be vigilant of our security, but at the same time I want my congregation to be able to be open and welcoming to anybody who wants to experience the joy and beauty of Judaism with us," Knopf says. "It's harder to do that when you have to have an armed guard outside the door."

Both Knopf and Asher note that armed security guards are on the premises during services at their synagogues.

"What that means is we're effectively letting violent anti-Semites rob us of our ability to serve our community in other ways because we have to use those resources to pay for security," Knopf says.

Jewish Family Services' chief operating officer, Sydney Fleischer, says she feels safe as a Jew in Richmond, and it's important to prioritize security and have these discussions while still moving forward. She describes feeling lost and helpless on the day of the shooting.

"It's just stunning, and at first you feel like, 'How can I possibly do anything,'" she says. "Then you realize that any little thing you do matters. One of the Jewish values is that if you save one person you save the world."

As a clinical social worker, Fleischer advises people to talk through whatever they're feeling after a traumatic event, especially parents. It's not easy to tell a child of any age that hatred exists, she says, and a parent may never be able to adequately explain why someone may hate another person who's Jewish. That's why it's crucial to have open discussions and to "highlight the positive," leading by example and teaching diversity and inclusivity from a young age.

For more resources, Fleischer suggests checking out the Network of Jewish Human Service Agencies at networkjhsa.org. Templates are available for writing letters to the bereaved in Pittsburgh, along with links to organizations accepting donations on behalf of the community. S


          Bold Choices: Owners of boutiques discuss the season’s hottest fashion trends      Cache   Translate Page      

As the temperatures change and the holidays approach, the best of the year's fashion comes out to play. But this season feels different than falls that have come before: Women's fashion is bolder than ever. Women of the world are bolder, too.

A variety of female-led social movements such as Time's Up, Me Too and Everytown for Gun Safety have made it onto front pages and into daily conversation. Some of those movements have leveraged fashion to spread the word, including celebrities who wore black dresses at the Golden Globes and Lady Gaga, who chose to wear an oversized men's suit to accept her Women in Hollywood award from Elle Magazine.

'Tis the season to express your wild side, you have every permission and every excuse. This fall, Richmond boutiques are filling their hangers and shelves with trends that allow you to do so. Here are a few finds in the area with thoughts from the owners:

Animal Instincts

Some may say that animal print was never out of style. If it weren't out, then it's evolved into an even bigger beast this year. From hats to shoes, pants to makeup, the influence of animal-inspired prints is just about everywhere.

Think beyond the cloth and wear the trend on your ears. Nina Zabal has been rapidly creating new statement earrings inspired by patterns and collections straight from designers at New York Fashion Week. It's no surprise that one of the patterns that made its way into her latest collection is leopard print. They are made from polymer clay, gold-plated brass and stainless steel. You can find them on her site at shopheartlily.com or stop into Ashby (310 W. Cary St. in Carytown). Prices range from $25 to $250.

For something of a different breed, try snakeskin. Mod & Soul (323 W. Broad St.) carries a snake print V-neck midi dress ($68). It features bohemian dolman sleeves and a light, flowing fabric. While the pattern may nod to a wild vibe, the neutral brown tones are easily paired with fall basics like leather jackets, booties and tights.

One and Done

"Jumpsuits aren't going anywhere," says Daniela Paraschiv at Firefly Lane Boutique (2005-A Huguenot Road). "It's the easiest way to get dressed and make a statement."

If you're a lady on the move, you own a jumpsuit. If you don't, you should. Jumpsuits made a big resurgence several seasons ago and the styles continue to become more wearable, more flattering, and more modern.

Parashiv's store carries a variety of jumpsuits ready for play.  One cherry red Storia jumpsuit ($69) features ruffled bell-bottoms and ties at the shoulder. Another more conservative olive green floral print En Creme jumpsuit ($64) has short sleeves and a flattering wrap top and tie at the waist. Both are in essential Pantone colors for fall.

It's a Man's World

Menswear has been a political statement since women started wearing pants into the office during the 1960s. During the past half century, menswear has adapted more and more to the feminine figure. During Hilary Clinton's recent presidential bid, the power suit had more play than ever before. This season, however, menswear silhouettes aren't limited to blazers and trousers.

Traveling Chic Boutique (3143 W. Cary St.) owner Annie Cosby says she's added two new tuxedo dresses to the store's fall collection. One Greylin white tuxedo dress ($147) features long sleeves and comfortable silk fabric. Another black tuxedo dress ($133) is more feminine with a strapless sweetheart neckline, accentuated by a lapellike border.  The boutique reopened Oct. 19 after renovating its Carytown shop.

Corduroy

As the dress code turns more casual and bolder, women are looking for options outside of denim. "Corduroys are a comfortable alternative to denim and I think that's exactly why they are coming back in style," says Sweetest Stitch owner Niki Kong.

Corduroy can be found in many Richmond boutiques. The new take on the retro trend is less stiff than the classic interpretations you'll find in thrift and consignment stores. Sweetest Stitch carries a pair of burgundy corduroy overalls ($84). They are a familiar pinafore design with functional chest, front, and back pockets.

In another nod to the jumpsuit trend, Sweetest Stitch carries a deep V-neck jumpsuit ($80) in a rich teal color. The wide leg design is best when layered over a fitted long sleeve shirt or tee. The adjustable straps make it easy for a variety of body shapes to wear.

It's Rich

For Posh Sake (9502 Chamberlayne Road) owner Brook Fulwider says that "jewel tones have been a huge hit for fall." Mustard, magenta, teal and burgundy top are her favorite hues. Take home one of the boutique's magenta three-quarter bell sleeve dress ($42) for workwear and a cozy swing magenta bell sleeve sweater for the weekend ($47).

Sometimes these rich shades are best laid out in patterns, according to Shauna Smith, partner and co-owner of the Ashby, Clementine and Clover family. She pulled out a cropped sweater ($9) from Ashby's latest stock. It features thick turquoise, white and golden-rod yellow stripes.

"There are a lot of influences from the '70s in Ashby," Smith says. "Bold is definitely the way to go." S

          REVIEW: Bocata Latin Grill      Cache   Translate Page      
A popular North Chesterfield spot serves up classic Venezuelan cuisine in a nondescript space.

It seems every other week a new list comes out, hailing Richmond as one of the best cities to eat and drink your way through. Outstanding, upscale joints with dang-near star-chef status and stellar bar programs have become the norm, and the accolades are well-deserved.

That said, locals know that some of the best food in town comes from unsung places — mom-and-pop holes in the wall that sling goodness as if it came from grandma's kitchen. Such is the case with Bocata Latin Grill, purveyors of seriously fine Venezuelan eats. 

Open just two years, this place has gained a substantial following. Style Weekly readers recently voted it best gluten-free and best local burger in its annual Best Of Richmond issue. Just take a look at Bocata's Facebook page, where the devout stalk menu additions and drool over daily specials. Phrases like "legit" and "the best" are common in the comments.

Settled in a strip mall off Walmsley Boulevard in North Chesterfield, Bocata is a no-frills eatery — it's walk-up ordering, white walls and plastic utensils, folks. Most everything is served in red plastic baskets with the exception of heaping entrees. If soccer is your thing, you're in luck as there's usually a game on the back wall TV. What it lacks in ambiance, however, the grill makes up for with intense flavor and hospitality. On both of my visits to Bocata, the place was packed. Expect a warm welcome when you enter and a few recommendations if you find the menu a little overwhelming. Pro tip: You might want to take a gander at the offerings online before visiting, to give yourself some time to properly agonize over the expansive menu.

Venezuelan fare is anchored by staples like corn, rice, plantains, cheese and various meats and veggies, so there's a little something for everyone, including those of the gluten-free and vegetarian persuasions. Start your meal off right with an order of tequeños ($5.50), Venezuelan fried cheese sticks. These aren't your run-of-the-mill breadcrumb-covered mozzarella pieces a la TGI Friday's, but rather thick slices of queso fresco wrapped in blistering bread dough, served with creamy garlic and cilantro dipping sauce. Worth noting, the latter ingredient is barely detectable, for those of you who find the ever-polarizing herb to resemble soap. Don't fill up on these bad boys though. You'll want to save room.

While you might think of things like empanadas and arepas as starters, at Bocata these things have the potential to be your entire meal. A solid option proved to be a mixture of empanadas including plain cheese, chicken and pabellón, which combines beef, cheese, plantain and beans, with a side of yuca. Each corn turnover is plump, golden and far exceeds the size of most you've seen, especially for $3. The first break revealed a bounty of filling and gushing cheese — oh, the glory.

The cachapas ($9-$11), or corn pancakes, were equally pleasing. Like a foldable cornbread cousin, this semisweet handheld transports everything from steak to — you guessed it — cheese, to your face. Having maxed out on chicken and plantains, we gave the ham and cheese a go, which offered a balanced blend of sweet and salty. Again, order up a few of these and call them dinner.

Several dishes satisfy heartier appetites and those who might shy away from deep-fried foods. Parilla ($19.50), a mixed grill platter, is perfect for the most indecisive diner — or for sharing, if you're into that — with a smattering of juicy ribs, chorizo and rice alongside tomato, avocado and arepitas, a flat bread made of maize dough. We heard a diner at the next table over raving about his pabellón with its shredded beef, rice, black beans, sweet plantains, fried egg and avocado, and if the flavor lived up to presentation, it's safe to say that man was in for a treat.

Most things packed a mega flavor punch, but never too much kick, making Bocata great for kids too. And if you've got super picky little ones they can nosh on chicken nuggets ($5).

You can't go wrong with the sandwiches, like the aforementioned hamburguesa ($12), served with cheese, avocado, onions, tomato, egg, sausage, ham, coleslaw and crispy potato sticks. And as if there weren't enough edible reasons to give Bocata a try, there's also a beer menu. Available suds range from Dos Equis to some craft brews, but you might not see them hiding behind the counter. Don't hesitate to ask about them.

If there's room, close things out with some sweet stuff. The chicha, a sweet, milkshake-y concoction that tastes like arroz con leche, is a classic dessert beverage in Central and South America. And just like everything else from Bocata, it may not be fancy, but you won't forget it. S

          OPINION: Bet on the Underdog      Cache   Translate Page      
A family transition coach working with Creighton residents calls for more partnership and listening to residents.

Shelter is important to every living creature. It is a primary need outside of food, safety, and water. People may face all sorts of challenges when one or more of these basic needs are interrupted, but the barriers they face and the things they lack don't make them any less of a person or mean they need to be saved. It means they are survivors.

When I was growing up in Jackson Ward and the East End, I didn't think I was living in a high poverty area. It was home and it was community for us. We were family to our neighbors, as they were to us.

My mother was on disability due to various medical concerns. She attended school until 10th grade. When she received a lump sum of money for back child support, we moved from Jackson Ward into a home in the East End. It was a true fixer-upper. She did not know what it took to maintain a home. We were still low-income, trying to make it day by day. If the house needed a new roof, plumbing or electric repair, we could not afford it.

To a person on the outside, it looked better, but it did not feel that way. Things were broken. We were cold and did not have resources or options. My mother did not want to live in a home that was run-down. If she had more knowledge of resources and someone to help her navigate them, I think things would have been different for us. Despite challenges, whether it was lack of food, money, or experiencing domestic violence, my mother and I are survivors.

Working with residents in Creighton Court reminds me daily that despite where you live it is home and it's community. Residents of Creighton Court are resilient and self-aware and they know what barriers they face. Some may feel they are stuck, whether from fear or from trauma. When a person's housing is disrupted through no fault of their own, feelings of fear, anxiety, worry, etc. can impact everything in their daily lives.

Richmond Redevelopment Housing Authority has given residents choices as part of the redevelopment plan. Some Creighton residents do have at least two housing options open to them at this point and more to come in the future. For some, it might be harder to qualify to get into a proposed private housing option — there are more qualifications like a criminal background check, eviction record and credit report. If they do not qualify, what is going to happen to them? Are we truly addressing poverty if we are moving people from public housing clustered in certain neighborhoods to private low-income housing clustered in the same neighborhoods with no choice in the matter?

I understand that the demolition of Creighton Court will not happen overnight. Maybe not in a year. Maybe not in two years. Maybe five or 10 years from now we can talk with residents about what it took to be ready, but we may not have five or 10 years.

The timeline is unclear: We do not know exactly when Creighton will be demolished. We do know that not everyone will be ready to take a step forward when it is time. Some people will get good-paying jobs and be ready to support their families and take on whatever is coming. Some residents will end up in another public housing community. Unfortunately, some may become homeless due to not meeting certain requirements, which is consistently on my mind. Homelessness is the last thing we want for anyone.

I did not take this job to see residents without choices. It's much harder to get people involved in the transition coaching when we can't offer them hope that they can make choices about where they want to go, or when they don't feel like they have what they need to make it on their own — good health, child care, transportation and personal support.

I am here to try to help residents prepare to move out, but I don't have the resources to improve credit. I can teach residents about credit. I can teach them how to read a credit report and how to dispute false reporting. I can show them how to write out bills and think about budgeting. But residents with limited income will still have limited income when they leave Creighton, especially seniors and people on disability.

In order to improve outcomes of redevelopment prospects for residents, all the stakeholders of this work have to be transparent with one another and be OK with saying, "I do not know." Partners also should be intentional about building authentic relationships with residents and have them at the table during every phase of the process.

We also need more funding and partnerships across the board: That includes funding to assist residents with addressing their credit, to help residents address whatever health needs Medicaid expansion won't cover and to help providers like Daily Planet Health Services and Richmond Behavioral Health Authority serve more residents. This also calls for partnerships and funding to expand and improve child-care resources so residents can accept jobs when they are offered.

Public housing residents have been the underdogs in Richmond for a long time. But if the underdog can navigate to resources and have choices and power, they can be successful no matter where they start or how long they've been considered to be down. S

          Suite Spot      Cache   Translate Page      

The line at the Urban Hang Suite looks longer than expected, even for a highly anticipated debut eatery from a well-liked local celebrity. It turns out that most of the visitors aren't actually in line. Instead, they're just hanging out, standing around chatting. Which is exactly what owner Kelli Lemon intends.

The words "connections, coffee, culture" painted on the front windows welcome visitors into Lemon's casual breakfast and lunch spot. Billed as a social cafe, Urban Hang Suite is currently open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week, with plans for occasional after-hours events. The simple menu offers coffee, sandwiches and salads.

Lemon is well-known for her Coffee with Strangers podcast, in which she interviews interesting Richmonders about what they're doing around town. She is a visible figure in the city, recognized for her smiling enthusiasm and community support. On Wednesday, her crew returned the favor at Urban Hang Suite's opening.

"We served 200 people just for breakfast," Lemon says, stepping away from the order counter. "It's been amazing, way past my expectations."

Facing some last-minute snafus with food service, Lemon had pared down the opening menu to just a few sandwiches. Most restaurant owners would react with panic or anger, but Lemon is all smiles.

"We were up until 3 in the morning, and then back here at 5 a.m. to open for breakfast," she says. "Basically, I went home just to shower."

She glosses over the opening-day challenges, projecting confidence and flexibility. "It's all new," she says. "I need to see what people like and what direction it goes."

Urban Hang Suite's order counter is in the front room. A chalkboard menu on the back wall lists breakfast bagel sandwiches, lunch salads, sandwiches and several grain bowls. With no kitchen, the food is pre-made, with counter staff doing some assembly and additions. Lemon is applying for an ABC license and plans to serve local beers, Virginia wines and a few signature cocktails.

"Our goal is to transition to at least 80 percent local sourcing with our vendors," Lemon explains. Currently she offers Lamplighter coffee, and relies on Richmond-based food supplier Performance Food Group. (The writer is married to someone who works for the company.) "We want to cycle the money right back into the community," she says.

The action is through a curtained doorway into the back room. Banquette seating and small tables nestle together to encourage conversation. Eventually, Lemon plans to have DJs and live music on the small stage in a back corner.

Bright art and antiques create an eclectic but warm vibe, while '90s R&B music plays on multiple wall monitors. The music isn't at dance volume, but it's too loud to encourage laptop work. Which is fine for Lemon, as she wants to encourage conversation.

"I was listening yesterday, and one table was talking about what they were going to do over the weekend, another table was talking about college football, and another was talking about politics and the election," Lemon says. "You can't tell me those conversations didn't overlap or they didn't hear each other. This allows people to jump into the conversation, or maybe just listen and learn something new." S

The Allure of Horses
A very British lifestyle

I am delighted to announce my latest book "The Allure of Horses" published by Assouline.

"In a unique examination of the close relationship between humans and horeses, this title takes readers on a journey across equine communities—from the steeplechase to the Changing of the Guard by the Household Cavalry to the thrill of the polo field to side-saddle riding through the countryside on a warm summer’s eve... "The Allure of Horses" is not just about dramatic moments but also the mysterious, symbiotic, and ancient relationship between man and beast—horse and rider."

It's available to purchase now from Assouline

I am also pleased to announce that Maison Assouline will be hosting an exhibition upstairs in the Grande Salle of selected prints from the title from 26th October to 12th November.

"In his unique way of looking at things, Uli has beautifully captured and added to the long-standing tradition of artists exploring the unique relationship that exists between man and horse."
—The Duke of Richmond

"The pictures that Uli has taken are of course magnificent, but I also really enjoy how he has highlighted what horses mean to all of us who live and work with them."
—Lt Col J D A GASELEE LG | Commanding Officer Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment

VA-07: Two more big House pickups, one kind of expected, one not. Abigail Spanberger has gotten way up in Dave Brat’s grill in Virginia’s 7th in Richmond’s suburbs, and CBS has called the race for her. There’s also an AP call for Democratic candidate Kendra Horn in OK-05, a race that was on few people’s radar screens (Daily Kos Elections had it at “Likely Republican”).

Wednesday, Nov 7, 2018 · 4:48:32 AM +00:00 · David Nir

And Democrats have now flipped a net of 24 seats in the House! Republicans still have a handful of pickup opportunities, so we could see that number tick back down, but it’s much more likely to increase, since a number of good Dem targets still remain uncalled.

AR-02: The AP has called the race in Arkansas’s 2nd district for Republican incumbent French Hill; this was a longshot pickup opportunity for the Dems.

MO-Sen: Unfortunately, the AP has Shown Me that Republican candidate Josh Hawley will be the next Senator from Missouri, defeating Democratic incumbent Claire McCaskill by a sizable margin. It looks like the Democrats will probably end up with a net loss in the Senate even while flipping the House.

IL-13: In what may be the night’s most confusing race, CNN has walked back its call for Democratic candidate Betsy Londrigan. Incumbent Rodney Davis has a small lead with most votes counted.

Wednesday, Nov 7, 2018 · 4:58:31 AM +00:00 · David Jarman

NY-27: Running for re-election while under indictment is never a good idea, and it seems like Republican Chris Collins is learning that lesson. With 50 percent of the vote reporting, he’s trailing Democrat Nate McMurray by a pretty wide 54-44 margin.

Rep. Dan Donovan (R) lost his re-election bid in New York's 11th Congressional District to Democrat Max Rose, The Associated Press and NBC News project.

Donovan, the former Richmond County district attorney, had the support of President Trump and was expected to retain his seat. The district covers Staten Island and portions of Brooklyn, and Donovan was the only Republican congressman in New York City. Rose is a veteran of the Afghanistan War and was wounded in action in 2013.

Election Day is upon us, and most of the major nonpartisan handicappers and number-crunching forecasters are predicting the same thing: Democrats will overcome a host of structural disadvantages to retake the House, while Republicans will hold onto the Senate, in no small part because of the quirks of the electoral calendar.

For the record, that’s what I expect to happen as well. But that established consensus can obscure a reality that can’t be ignored: The available evidence suggests those are the most likely outcomes, but it does not guarantee them—a lesson that 2016 made painfully clear. It is all but certain that there will be a few big surprises on Tuesday night that no one will have seen coming on Tuesday morning. A shocker or three in the Senate, or a whole bunch of them in the House, won’t necessarily alter the big picture. But if the surprises keep piling up and happen in just the right places, we just might be looking at a Democratic Senate, a GOP House, or both.

Here, then, are a few plausible ways the prevailing wisdom could go bust.

A Democratic Senate

Flipping the Senate was always going to be a heavy lift for Democrats, despite control of the upper chamber sitting just two seats away. More than half of the Democrats’ 49-member caucus is on the ballot on Tuesday, and 10 of those 26 incumbents are in states Donald Trump won two years ago. Republicans, meanwhile, are defending just nine of their 51 seats, only one of which is in a state Hillary Clinton won (Nevada, by 2.4 percent) and half of which are Mitt Romney–running-in-Utah safe. But while it’s a historically horrendous map for Democrats, it’s not an impossible one to navigate.

Here’s how Democrats could net the two seats they need for a 51-seat majority.

Scenario 1: Heidi holds on

Of the half-dozen or so vulnerable Democratic incumbents, North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp is thought to be in the most danger. She’s down double digits in the polls to GOP Rep.
Kevin Cramer in a state Trump won by 36 percentage points. The Cook Political Report and other handicappers rate the race as “Lean Republican,” the only Democratic seat right of the tossup column. FiveThirtyEight’s classic model has Cramer as a 3-in-4 favorite. And CNN pegs Cramer’s most likely margin of victory at 8 percentage points, though its range of forecasted outcomes runs from a 19-percentage-point win by Cramer to a 4-percentage-point win by Heitkamp.

If Heitkamp were to pull this one out, though, that would fundamentally change the equation. Democrats currently have four credible chances of picking up a seat: Arizona, Nevada, Texas, and Tennessee. But there’s a clear divide between the first two and the last two on that list. FiveThirtyEight and CNN both have Democrat Kyrsten Sinema as a mild favorite to win a close race against Martha McSally in Arizona. Meanwhile in Nevada, FiveThirtyEight sees Democrat Jacky Rosen as the slight favorite and CNN sees her as the tiniest of underdogs against GOP Sen. Dean Heller. Meanwhile, both sites see Beto O’Rourke and Phil Bredesen as considerably longer shots in Texas and Tennessee, respectively. If Heitkamp and the rest of the Democratic incumbents can survive, winning eminently winnable races in Arizona and Nevada would be enough to win the Senate. If Heitkamp loses, though, Democrats will need to offset it with a bona fide upset somewhere else.

Scenario 2: Beto O’Rourke to the rescue

The path to 51 gets narrower if Heitkamp or another one of her Senate colleagues goes down, but it doesn’t close completely. Democrats would need a hero to emerge, most likely either in Texas or Tennessee. Of the two, Beto is considered the slightly better bet: FiveThirtyEight’s classic model, for instance, gives the Texan a 2-in-9 chance of beating Ted Cruz, to Bredesen’s 1-in-5 chance of beating Marsha Blackburn. If Beto takes down Cruz, he’d cement his status as a progressive folk hero. But if Beto takes down Cruz and becomes the 51st Democratic senator in the process? He’d become a god to the left.

Scenario 3: A very special surprise

If Heidi falls and Beto and Bredesen come up short—or some other less likely combination of events gets Democrats to 50 seats—Democrats could still be alive. Their last hope would be Tuesday’s special election in Mississippi, which is very special indeed: There were no primaries to winnow the field, there are no party affiliations listed on the ballot to guide voters, and there will be no election-night winner unless one of the four candidates secures a majority of the vote. That means a two-person runoff on Nov. 27 remains possible—and based on limited polling, maybe even probable—between the two favorites, interim GOP Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith and former Agriculture Secretary Mike Espy.* Cook has the race leaning Republican, meaning it’s technically competitive, but other handicappers like Inside Elections and Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball disagree. Regardless of Espy’s chances, though, a runoff would keep the Democratic dream of Senate control alive for at least a little longer.

A Republican House

Republicans are running into some serious historical headwinds as they try to limit Democrats’ gains below the 23 seats they need to take the speaker’s gavel. The party that controls the presidency has lost congressional seats in 35 out of the 38 midterms dating back to the end of the Civil War. And according to the Cook Political Report’s count, there have been seven midterm elections since 1966 where a president’s approval rating “hovered” below 50 percent—a, um, generous term for where Trump’s sits at the moment—and in those, the opposing party has picked up at least two dozen House seats in all but one. The sole exception was in 2014 in the middle of Barack Obama’s second term. The GOP won “only” 13 seats that year, in no small part because Democrats didn’t have all that many to lose after getting shellacked in the 2010 midterms.

Unlike in the Senate, where roughly one-third of the seats are up at any given time, the entire lower chamber is on the ballot every two years. That makes plotting out if-then paths to a GOP House insanely complicated, so let’s instead consider the types of races Republicans will need to win on Tuesday in order to keep the House. For the sake of simplicity, we’ll work off of Cook’s ratings and FiveThirtyEight’s classic model (as of midday Monday) to plot a path to another GOP House.

Where Republicans are the favorites

Cook counts a total of 47 Republican seats as tossups or worse for the GOP, giving Democrats plenty of opportunities to pick up the 23 seats they need. But before Republicans worry about winning the bulk of those battlegrounds, first they need to lock down the seats where they have the advantage but by are no means shoe-ins—a “Lean Republican” list that includes 28 GOP seats. Republicans don’t need to win all those districts, but they’ll need to offset any losses in this column with corresponding wins in districts that aren’t nearly as friendly. A small sampling of the kind of races we’re talking about:

• Iowa’s 4th, where bigoted Rep. Steve King is a 6-in-7 favorite against former pro baseball player J.D. Scholten in a rural district that went for Trump by 27 percentage points after going for Mitt Romney by 8 percentage points six years ago.

• California’s 50th, where indicted Rep. Duncan Hunter is a 7-in-9 favorite against former Obama administration official Ammar Campa-Najjar in a suburban San Diego district that went for Trump by 15 percentage points after going for Romney by 23 percentage points.

• Wisconsin’s 1st, where Speaker Paul Ryan is retiring and his former staffer, Bryan Steil, is a 7-in-9 favorite against union steelworker Randy Bryce in a gerrymandered district Trump won by 10 after Romney (with Ryan as his running mate) won by 4.

• Nebraska’s 2nd, where Rep. Don Bacon is the 4-in-7 favorite against nonprofit executive Kara Eastman in an Omaha-area district that went for Trump by just 2 after going for Romney by 7.

Republicans can also add to their cushion by winning in Minnesota’s 8th, the only Democratic seat in the Lean Republican column and one of just two such districts where Republicans are favorites. The GOP nominee, retired police office Pete Stauber, is a 4-in-5 favorite against former state lawmaker Joe Radinovich in that rural district, which went for Trump by 16 percentage points after going for Obama by 6. (The other Democratic district where the GOP is favored is Pennsylvania’s new 14th, which became more conservative after the state supreme court redrew the state’s map earlier this year.)

Where things could go either way

From there, the GOP will need to keep the momentum going in the toss-up column, where 29 of the 30 races are for Republican seats. A sampling:

• Texas’ 23rd, where Rep. Will Hurd is a 7-in-9 favorite against Air Force vet Gina Ortiz Jones in a San Antonio–area district that went for Clinton by 4 percentage points after going for Romney by 3.

• North Carolina’s 9th, where conservative pastor Mark Harris knocked off Rep. Robert Pittenger in the GOP primary and is now a 5-in-9 favorite against veteran Dan McCready in a Charlotte-area district that went for both Trump and Romney by 12.

• Virginia’s 7th, where Rep. Dave Brat is a 4-in-7 favorite against former CIA operations officer Abigail Spanberger in a suburban and rural Richmond district that went for Trump by 7 after going for Romney by 11.

• Kentucky’s 6th, where Rep. Andy Barr is a 5-in-9 favorite against former fighter pilot and viral star Amy McGrath in a Lexington-area district that went for Trump by 15 and Romney by 14.

• Utah’s 4th, where Rep. Mia Love is a 3-in-8 underdog against Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams in a Salt Lake City–area district that went for Trump by 7 after going for Romney by 37.

• Iowa’s 3rd, where Rep. David Young is a 3-in-10 underdog against Cindy Axne in a Des Moines–area district that went for Trump by 4 percentage points after going for Obama by the same margin.

The sole Democratic toss-up? The open seat for Minnesota’s 1st, where four-time GOP candidate Jim Hagedorn is a 4-in-9 underdog against Army vet Dan Feehan in the rural district that went for Trump by 15 percentage points after going for Obama by 1 percentage point.

Where they’ll need to pull off the upsets

Barring a near-sweep of those races, the GOP will still have some work to do to keep the House. Democrats are the clear favorite in a total of 18 GOP districts; in five of them, Cook doesn’t even give the GOP a chance. In a hypothetical world, then, where Republicans hold on to each and every of the 28 GOP seats that lean their way and win two-thirds of the 30 toss-ups, they’d still need to score a handful of upsets in the group of 13 GOP seats that Lean Democrat. A sampling:

• Kansas’ 3rd, where Rep. Kevin Yoder is a 1-in-7 underdog against attorney and former MMA fighter Sharice Davids in a Kansas City–area district that went for Clinton by 1 percentage point after going for Romney by 10 in 2012.

• Colorado’s 6th, where Rep. Mike Coffman is a 1-in-9 underdog against Army veteran Jason Crow in a suburban Denver district that went for Clinton by 9 percentage points after going for Obama by 5 percentage points.

• Iowa’s 1st, where Rep. Rod Blum is a 1-in-20 underdog against state Rep. Abby Finkenauer in a Cedar Rapids–area district that went for Trump by 4 after going for Obama by 14.

• California’s 49th, where state tax official Diane Harkey is a 1-in-30 underdog against attorney Mike Levin in this San Diego–area district that went for Clinton by 8 percentage points after going for Romney by 7 percentage points.

Unlike in the Senate, there is no single House race of outsize importance, and so there are myriad ways either party can cobble together the 218 seats it needs for a majority. Like Senate Democrats, however, House Republicans are going to need to beat the odds more often than they don’t on Tuesday if they’re going to be celebrating on Wednesday.

Is that probable? By definition, no. Is it possible? By definition, yes.

          Democrats appear close to taking back control of the House      Cache   Translate Page      

WASHINGTON — The Democrats picked up at least two dozen House seats Tuesday and appeared on track to retake control of the chamber, a victory that could put a check on President Donald Trump's agenda over the next two years and trigger a multitude of investigations into his business dealings and administration.

As one of the most volatile midterm elections in U.S. history wound down, the Democrats drew ever closer to the 218 seats needed for a majority, with dozens of races still undecided. A Democratic victory would break the Republicans' eight-year hold on the House that began with the tea party revolt of 2010.

While the Republican Party retained control of the Senate, a win for the Democrats in the House would end the GOP monopoly on power in Washington and open a new era of divided government.

"Tomorrow will be a new day in America," Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said at a victory party in Washington.

The campaign unfolded against a backdrop of ugly rhetoric and angry debates on immigration, health care and the role of Congress in overseeing the president.

With the Democratic Party needing a net gain of 23 to take back the House, its candidates flipped seats in several suburban districts outside Washington, Philadelphia, Miami, Chicago and Denver that were considered prime targets for turnover because they were won by Hillary Clinton in 2016. The Democrats also made inroads in Trump country, where they tried to win back white working-class voters.

Midterm elections are typically difficult for the party in power, but the GOP's hold on power was further weakened by an unusually large number of retirements as well as infighting between conservatives and centrists over their allegiance to Trump.

The Democrats, in turn, benefited from extraordinary voter enthusiasm, robust fundraising and unusually fresh candidates. More women than ever were running, along with veterans and minorities, many of them motivated by revulsion over Trump.

As the returns came in, the House was on track to break the record of 84 female members of one party or the other.

In trying to stem Republican losses, Trump made only passing reference to his $1.5 trillion tax cut — the GOP Congress' signature achievement — and instead barnstormed through mostly white regions of the country, interjecting dark and foreboding warnings. He predicted an "invasion" from the migrant caravan making its way toward the U.S. and decried the "radical" agenda of speaker-in-waiting Pelosi.

Trump also took little responsibility for the House, saying his focus was on saving the Senate.

On Tuesday night, he called to congratulate Pelosi and acknowledged her plea for bipartisanship, the leader's spokesman said.

Health care and immigration were high on voters' minds as they cast ballots, according to a ranging survey of the American electorate conducted by The Associated Press. AP VoteCast also showed a majority of voters considered Trump a factor in their votes.

The Democratic candidates tried to stick to an economic message of lowering health care costs and investing in infrastructure to create jobs.

They also promised to clean up government. With control of the House, Democrats will chair powerful committees and have subpoena power to seek Trump's tax returns and more aggressively investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether there was any collusion by the president's campaign.

In the Miami area, former Clinton administration Cabinet member Donna Shalala won an open seat, while GOP Rep. Carlos Curbelo lost his bid for a third term in another district.

In the suburbs outside the nation's capital, Virginia Rep. Barbara Comstock — among the most endangered GOP incumbents, branded Barbara "Trumpstock" by Democrats — lost to Jennifer Wexton, a prosecutor and state legislator.

And outside Richmond, Virginia, one-time tea party favorite Rep. Dave Brat lost to Democrat Abigail Spanberger, a former CIA operative motivated to run for office after the GOP vote to gut the Affordable Care Act. Like other Democrats across the country, Spanberger emphasized protecting people with pre-existing conditions from being denied coverage or charged more by insurers.

Pennsylvania was particularly daunting for Republicans after court-imposed redistricting and a rash of retirements put several seats in play. Democratic favorite Conor Lamb, who stunned Washington by winning a special election in the state, beat Republican Rep. Keith Rothfus in a new district. At least three other red districts flipped to blue.

In Kansas, Democrat Sharice Davids beat a GOP incumbent to become one of two Native American women, with Deb Haaland of New Mexico, elected to the House. Davids is also openly gay.

Democrats welcomed other firsts, including two Muslim-American women, Rhasida Tlaib of Michigan and Minnesota's Ilhan Oman, who is also the first Somali-American elected to Congress. The Republican side of the aisle elected mostly white men.

But in Kentucky, one of the top Democratic recruits, retired Marine fighter pilot Amy McGrath, lost her bid to oust to three-term Rep. Andy Barr in the Lexington-area district.

Republicans had expected the GOP tax plan would be the cornerstone of their election agenda this year, but it became a potential liability in key states along the East and West coasts where residents could face higher tax bills because of limits on property and sales tax deductions.

The tax law was particularly problematic for Republicans in New Jersey, where at least three GOP-held seats flipped. The winners included Democrat Mikie Sherrill, a former Navy pilot and federal prosecutor who ran for a suburban Newark seat.

The GOP campaign committee distanced itself from eight-term Rep. Steve King of Iowa after he was accused of racism and anti-Semitism, but he won anyway.

In California, four GOP seats in the one-time Republican stronghold of Orange County were in play, along with three other seats to the north beyond Los Angeles and into the Central Valley.

"We always knew these races are going to be close," said Rep. Katherine Clark of Massachusetts, co-chair of House Democrats' recruitment efforts. "It's just a very robust class of candidates that really reflects who we are as a country."

CALIFAS: Art of the US-Mexico Borderlands

Califas: Art of the US-Mexico Borderlands explores representations of the US-Mexico ‘borderlands’ in contemporary art, with a special emphasis on the Bay Area.

This exhibition comes at a moment when the current nationwide immigration crisis has once again focused attention on the border between Mexico and the United States. Californian communities, activists, politicians, and artists have been especially vocal in this crisis.

Featuring works by 21 contemporary artists and collaborative groups, Califas explores the origins of migrant memory, the consequences of boundary line fortifications, the mixing of border cultures, responses to injustice and inequality, and solutions to advance the borderlands and its peoples.

The exhibition adopts a unique lens to re-examine the past, grapple with understanding the present, and connect with the future of a distinct cross-border culture. The name Califas is commonly used to refer to California by Chicanos wishing to emphasize the deep histories, memories, and identities that existed in the state long before the international boundary was created in 1848. Adapted for use in this exhibition, Califas provides new ways of seeing California and Baja California – as borderlands before walls, when people understood the border as a connecting tissue not a line of separation.

Featured Artists: AGENCY (Ersela Kripa & Stephen Mueller), Chester Arnold, Jesus Barraza, Enrique Chagoya, CRO studio (Adriana Cuellar & Marcel Sánchez), Ana Teresa Fernández, Nathan Friedman, Guillermo Galindo, Rebeca García-González, Andrea Carrillo Iglesias, Amalia Mesa-Bains, Richard Misrach, Alejandro Luperca Morales, Julio César Morales, Postcommodity, Rael San Fratello (Ronald Rael & Virginia San Fratello), Fernando Reyes, Favianna Rodriguez, Stephanie Syjuco, David Taylor, Judi Werthein, Rio Yañez

Califas is guest co-curated by UC Berkeley professors Michael Dear, author of Why Walls Won’t Work, and Ronald Rael, author of Borderwall as Architecture: A Manifesto for the U.S.-Mexico Boundary.

The exhibition is made possible with support from the Zellerbach Family Foundation, Susan Chamberlin, Matt and Margaret Jacobson, and anonymous donors.

CALIFAS: el Arte de la Zona Fronteriza México-Estados Unidos

Califas: el Arte de la Zona Fronteriza de México-Estados Unidos explora las representaciones de las “zonas fronterizas” de México y Estados Unidos en el arte contemporáneo, con un énfasis especial en El Área de la Bahía.

Esta exposición se produce en un momento en que la actual crisis de inmigración nacional ha vuelto a centrar la atención en la frontera entre México y los Estados Unidos. Las comunidades, los activistas, los políticos y los artistas de California han sido especialmente activos en esta crisis.

Con obras de 21 artistas contemporáneos y grupos colaborativos, Califas explora los orígenes de la memoria migratoria, las consecuencias de las fortificaciones fronterizas, la mezcla de culturas fronterizas, las respuestas a la injusticia y la desigualdad, y las soluciones para avanzar en las fronteras y sus pueblos.

La exhibición adopta una lente única para reexaminar el pasado, lidiar con la comprensión del presente y conectarse con el futuro de una cultura transfronteriza diferente. El nombre Califas se usa comúnmente para referirse a California por los Chicanos que desean enfatizar las profundas historias, memorias e identidades que existían en el estado mucho antes de que se creara el límite internacional en 1848. Adaptado para su uso en esta exposición, Califas ofrece nuevas formas de ver a California y Baja California, como fronteras antes que los muros existieran, cuando la gente entendía el límite como un tejido que conecta, no como una línea de separación.

Califas es comisariada por los profesores de UC Berkeley Michael Dear, autor de Why Walls Won’t Work (Por Qué los Muros No Funcionarán), y Ronald Rael, autor de Borderwall as Architecture: A Manifesto for the US-Mexico Boundary (Muro Fronterizo como Arquitectura: un Manifiesto para el Límite Entre Estados Unidos y México).

La exposición es posible gracias al apoyo de la Fundación de la Familia Zellerbach, Susan Chamberlin, Matt y Margaret Jacobson, y donadores anónimos.

ABOUT THE RICHMOND ART CENTER

The Richmond Art Center is the largest visual arts center in the East Bay, delivering exciting arts experiences to young and old alike who reflect the diverse richness of our community. The Art Center features hands-on learning, well-equipped studios, Art in the Community programs and contemporary exhibitions in its galleries.

Every year, the Richmond Art Center serves thousands of students through classes and programs taught by professional artists, both onsite at the Art Center and at sites throughout Richmond. The Art Center’s four galleries mount rotating exhibitions that display the works of emerging and established Bay Area artists. Artists such as Richard Diebenkorn, Richard Misrach, Wanxin Zhang, Mildred Howard, Bella Feldman, Hung Liu, William Wiley, June Schwartz, and David Park have been showcased here.

The Richmond Art Center originated in 1936, when local artist Hazel Salmi, who worked for the WPA, traversed the streets of Richmond with a suitcase packed with art supplies, eager to teach art to anyone interested. Today, everything at the Art Center continues to breathe life into Salmi’s original vision: That within every person lives an artist.

About Vision To Learn

Vision To Learn is a non-profit organization that provides free eye exams and free glasses to students in low-income communities to give them every chance to succeed in school and in life. The program was founded in Los Angeles in 2012 and has since expanded to schools in over 180 cities throughout areas of California, Delaware, Hawaii, Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, Georgia,
Virginia and now Mississippi.

80% of all learning during a child’s first 12 years is obtained through vision and is consequently one of the most basic problems standing in the way of educational achievement. About 15% of children
in low-income communities lack the glasses they need to see the board, read a book, study math or participate in class. According to UCLA researchers, 96% of all first graders who need glasses do not have them. Low-income and minority students are disproportionately affected. 

Since our inception, Vision To Learn has made over 4,500 school visits, examined over 95,000 students and provided over 75,000 children with free glasses. Vision To Learn partners with school districts to provide eye exams to children in low-income communities with unmet needs for glasses. Our mobile eye clinics arrive at the school on a pre-scheduled date. We see an average of 25 students daily on our mobile clinic.

New Logo for Staples Canada

(Est. 1991) "Staples Canada Inc. (also known in Quebec as Bureau en Gros; formerly known as The Business Depot and later Staples Business Depot) is a Canadian office supply retail chain, part of the United States-based office supply company Staples Inc. The Canadian operation is headquartered in Richmond Hill, Ontario. Staples remains one of the most profitable office supply chains in Canada, with larger share than its main rival Grand & Toy. It is the largest supplier of office supplies to small businesses and home office workers, either in store, online or by catalogue, with over 300 stores and five delivery centers." (Wikipedia)

Opinion
IMPORTANT: this change is for Staples in Canada ONLY. Is it possible it would apply to the U.S.? Sure. But that’s not the case at the moment. I have always liked the idea behind the Staples logo, of turning the “L” into a bent staple; the execution is harsh but it works. The new logo introduces a new staple to accompany the old one and opens them up, facing each other in the spirit of press-released collaboration. The icon has potential as a flexible device that can open up and expand to accommodate content — like Du Pont’s recent redesign — but on the logo there is something odd about it. It’s a hard graphic to use and I think I believe I may like it but I’m not entirely sure. The all lowercase wordmark is fine, I guess. I wouldn’t have minded an initial uppercase “S” in the name, not to mention proper capitals on the tagline. Overall, I think this has plenty of potential and if you think of how hard it is to come up with minimal icons in modern times, evocative of the company name, this is quite commendable.

          Victorian nominations – Liberals sit out inner city?      Cache   Translate Page      

Nominations will close tomorrow for registered political parties running in the Victorian state election, with independents having until Friday to nominate.

The Liberal Party today submitted their bulk nominations, but failed to nominate a candidate for the inner city seats of Brunswick, Melbourne, Northcote and Richmond – all of which are marginal Labor-Greens contests. Two are held by Labor, and two are held by the Greens.

This is a strange decision, not seen by a major party in decades. It will likely cost the party money and could hurt their upper house campaign, if the Liberals don’t change their mind in the next 18 hours.

The Liberal Party has been racked by difficulty in recent election cycles when it comes to making a decision about whether to preference the Greens or Labor higher on their how-to-vote cards. Most Liberal voters have been happy to follow the party line in these contests, which saw Liberal preferences substantially favour the Greens up until the 2010 federal election, when Liberal preferences helped Adam Bandt to victory in the federal seat of Melbourne.

Following this result the party changed its mind, and has preferenced Labor over the Greens at state and federal elections in Victoria, and usually in other states. This saw multiple races where the Greens would have won with the historical preference flows (see Melbourne state by-election in 2012 and Batman in 2016), but Labor instead held on.

Yet this was not a comfortable position for the Liberal Party: helping hold back the Green tide in the inner city while fighting Labor in other seats.

The NSW Liberal Party has consistently chosen to instead recommend voters just vote 1: effectively encouraging Liberal voters to abstain from the contest. But this can only be done in New South Wales state elections, which don’t require a full preference ticket.

Not standing candidates in the general election is another way to avoid this difficult decision, but it’s a strange one. It’s been decades since either major party chose to sit out contests at a general election (despite being commonplace at by-elections). The Liberal Party stood to receive $7 in public funding per vote in these seats, which is likely more than it would’ve cost to run a low-profile campaign in those seats. They could have instead chosen to recommend an open ticket, which instructs the voter how to cast a formal vote but does not recommend specific preferences.

The Liberal Party will still be contesting the Northern Metropolitan upper house region, where they polled 1.3 quotas and won one seat in 2014, and could have had a chance of winning a second seat. While I’m sure plenty of Liberal voters in these inner-city seats will still find their way to vote Liberal for the Legislative Council, it’s bound to hurt their vote and make it hard for the right in the upper house.

One possible explanation could be that the party is still considering nominating candidates, but is negotiating with Labor or the Greens. Quotes from Matthew Guy today suggest that the party is still discussing their options with Labor.

We should know what they are doing by tomorrow.

In the meantime, I’ve used this opportunity to run an update of our list of Victorian Legislative Assembly candidates. This list includes 454 candidates, including full slates of candidates for Labor and the Greens. Only 367 of these candidates had been listed as officially nominated as of 5pm on Wednesday night.

I will do a more thorough analysis of the breakdown of candidates once nominations are closed on Friday, but if you’d like to look at the list you can find it here.

          Louisiana decides future of non-unanimous jury verdicts      Cache   Translate Page      
Louisiana decides future of non-unanimous jury verdicts
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Voters will decide Tuesday whether Louisiana should join almost every other state in the nation where jury verdicts must be unanimous.
  
For decades jurors in felony trials - with the exception of death penalty cases - have been able to convict defendants with a 10-2 or 11-1 verdict.
  
Oregon is the only other state that allows split verdicts, and in Louisiana, support for joining the other 48 has been broad, with a rare coalition of conservatives and progressives calling for passage.
  
U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy, a Republican, and the only Democrat in the state congressional delegation, Rep. Cedric Richmond of New Orleans, supported it. So did groups as politically diverse as the Louisiana Family Forum and the Southern Poverty Law Center.
  
Backers derided split-verdict felonies as a vestige of Jim Crow-era polices promoting white supremacy, making it easier to convict non-white defendants even if one or two non-whites are on a jury. And they noted the possibility of a non-unanimous jury convicting innocent defendants.
  
A video distributed by the Unanimous Jury Coalition featured two exonerated convicts who had been imprisoned as a result of split verdicts.
  
Even the conservative Koch-brothers-backed Americans For Prosperity exploited this fear, in a 30-second online ad for the amendment.
  
"Imagine your child is charged with a crime she didn't commit," the ad said. "Multiple jurors agree she is innocent but the government sends her to prison anyway. It happens in Louisiana."
  
Nishi Kumar, a volunteer for the Yes on 2 campaign, was out Tuesday morning waving a sign to encourage drivers to support the measure. Her interest in the amendment comes from the criminal defense work she does with the Promise of Justice Initiative, a New Orleans-based organization that advocates for reforms.
  
"It's just a very antiquated law. It's based in Jim Crow. It's based in racism, and it's time to overturn it," she said.
  
Anne Ferris, a 43-year-old New Orleans resident, said she hadn't realized until recently that felony juries didn't have to be unanimous.
  
"There should be a unanimous verdict whenever there's a jury trial. If there's not a unanimous verdict then it's a hung jury," she said. "If it makes it harder, sorry. The prosecution needs to do a little bit better I guess."
  
While broad, support wasn't unanimous.
  
Calcasieu Parish District Attorney John DeRosier was a vocal opponent as the amendment moved through the Legislature, and Sabine Parish District Attorney Don Burkett said it would thwart justice by enabling a single juror to block a conviction in a case where evidence is clearly beyond a reasonable doubt.
  
"Child molesters, drug dealers, murderers - it's going to make it tougher than ever to convict them," Burkett said in an interview.
  
The Louisiana District Attorneys Association stayed officially neutral. But, some prosecutors gave full-throated support.
  
District attorneys backing the measure included Hillar Moore III in Baton Rouge, James Stewart in Caddo Parish, Keith Stutes in Lafayette, and Paul Connick of Jefferson Parish in suburban New Orleans. New Orleans' district attorney Leon Cannizzaro stayed neutral.
  
"Once you know the history of this law, then you have to vote to repeal it," former Grant Parish District Attorney Ed Tarpley, a Republican, told the Press Club of Baton Rouge. "This is something that is a stain on the legacy of our state."
