Metro Transit – ABRT “D” Line to travel faster, less stops on Chicago Av

By JOHN CHARLES WILSON

Do you, like so many other Phillips residents, ever have occasion to ride Metro Transit’s “legendary 5”, the Chicago Ave. bus? If so, do you dread the long, slow

ride with stops every single block, the overcrowding, the likelihood of having to listen to yet another belligerent commuter who may or may not happen to be drunk or high?

Well, the Met Council has a proposal for you! It’s called the D Line and it promises a 20-25 percent faster ride using all articulated buses with three doors each for more comfort and easier boarding and alighting. Fare payments will work like they do on light rail; you will tap your GoTo Card or buy a ticket before you get on the bus. That means less having to listen to someone argue with the driver about the fare. If they don’t pay, any confrontation will be with the Transit Police, who usually take the person off the bus or train to deal with them.

Preservation group pressures City and State rescue

After 7,000 bodies were exhumed and moved from disheveled cemetery

By SUE HUNTER WEIR
154th in a Series

In April 1919, the Minneapolis City Council voted to close Layman’s Cemetery to future burials. What followed was the most chaotic period in the cemetery’s history. It was a time when tall tales and extravagant claims were picked up and repeated in the newspapers. It was a time when the editorial pages of the local newspapers published dozens of letters from citizens arguing in favor of protecting the cemetery and from those who argued that the land should be cleared for commercial development or for recreational uses.

HHH Class uses “Jumper Cables” to boost The Alley Transition

SUSAN ANN GUST /ALLEYNEWS

By SUSAN ANN GUST

The Alley Newspaper’s key volunteers/leadership are elated to have spent Saturday, Feb. 3 with 13 amazing graduate students from the U of M Humphrey Institute in a class called “Stakeholders Skills for Policymakers and Planners”. The Public Affairs class is taught by Wendy Wustenberg and Lee Munnich. We learned a lot and received a lot of terrific ideas for planning for the transition of the editorship, exploring new ideas for organizational models, financial sustainability while staying true to the idea of lifting the voices of the Phillips Community. Look for updates in the April issue and/or get involved in helping to keep The Alley going!
