Transit – Safety and comfort, real and perceived, is needed equally for all routes

By JOHN CHARLES WILSON

Even though this month is the quarterly schedule change, it’s a fairly slow month for transit news. In Phillips, only Routes 9 and 19 had any changes, and they were just minor adjustments to make the scheduled bus times more closely align with how long the route really takes.

That said, I convinced my roommate to try taking the bus to a May Day volunteer meeting at In the Heart of the Beast Theatre (and he encourages everyone to donate $5.00 to the May Day parade). He told me his story: Read the rest of this entry »

“Mother” St. James Congregation endears Church to preserve stories

The building where St. James’ members worship today is 60 years old; it is a modest and beautiful church that is lovingly maintained. It was designed by architect Irwin H. Kilstofte and constructed at its current location in 1959. On February 27, 2018, the Heritage Preservation Commission voted unanimously to approve that request. One questions was: “Is it about the people or is it about the building?” It’s an interesting question and one where the answer does not have to be “either/or” but can be “both/and.” | Courtesy Mpls. Community Planning and Economic Development

By SUE HUNTER WEIR

In April 2017, Reverend Michael Gonzales submitted an application to the City of Minneapolis requesting that St. James A. M. E. Church (located at 3600 Snelling Avenue) be considered for landmark status. The request was an expression of the congregation’s love for their church and their desire to preserve the work and stories of the church’s past for its present and future members and to share their stories with the larger community.

Movie Corner

By HOWARD McQUITTER II

“Submission”
(2017) Drama
Great Point Media

2.5/5 stars

I never read Francine Prose’s novel “Blue Angel” but the movie the novel is based on is unfortunately (and perhaps mercifully) prosaic, hackneyed, and squanders what could and should have a better look into # Me Too politics.

Though director Richard Levine (“Every Day”) concludes his movie, “Submission” speaks for itself without rendering anymore dirty details about real or perceived sexual harassment in the workplace. Read the rest of this entry »
