Not quite dead, but oversupplied. Photo via thegiantvermin @ flickr. Looking at the massive build up of low-density, car-dependent housing over the last 50 years, real estate developer Christopher Leinberger says in his book The Option of Urbanism that developers simply supplied too much of the wrong product in the wrong location. Yup, But, good news. Density in walkable urban areas tends to create YIMBY’s neighbors (Yes, In My Back Yard) because quality of life and property values get better. Leinberger doesn’t say the suburbs are dead – there will still be some demand for that product. But freedom to choose (that much lauded American ideal) means supplying the walkable… Read More

When You’re ‘Meant to Be Together,’ True Love Conquers All

Triumphant stories about tenacious love winning out over daunting obstacles are a staple of romance novels and the gossamer of take-me-away dreams. But for some people, the stories actually come true. Researchers have dubbed the phenomenon "lost-and-found love." Leslie Vreeland’s story is typical: In 1980, while home in Denver on a break from Smith College, Vreeland fell in love with Eric Ming. But Vreeland, now 40, aspired to a writing career in Manhattan. And Ming’s dream was to climb the Rockies. The geographic distance resulted in an emotional one. After three years, they broke up. He married quickly, but divorced three years later. Vreeland fell in love with someone else.… Read More

GRiZ will live in the moment, return from hiatus at The Amp in St. Augustine

Our interview with the producer ahead of his only Florida date. Photo by Jason Siegel “I think there’s a tipping point where you let the madness drive you crazier or you give yourself the chance to put everything in perspective. That was the thing, I was like, ‘I don’t want this to ruin me.’” Grant Kwieciński isn’t your average 28-year-old. Since creating his electro-funk, saxophone-laden GRiZ project in 2011, the Denver-based producer has gone from an infectious, talented newcomer pushing barriers in the electro-instrumental genre to becoming one of the more lovable, clamored-for figures in all of electronic music.

Letters to the editor: With casino, ‘slime’ will seep into small-town Shippensburg

Casino caution WELCOME, NEW RESIDENT: Addiction! Crime! Traffic! Falling Property Values! Economic Inequality! Sound appealing? If so, then join the army of local officials regurgitating rank propaganda from the casino industry and support a “mini-casino” here in Shippensburg. A robust body of studies have demonstrated what the common-sense experience of many Americans illustrates – that casinos: Benefit the few at the expense of the many, leading those who can least afford to squander funds – like the vulnerable elderly – to hand over limited income;profit by undermining precisely the virtue-centered habits – prudence, discipline, moderation – on which many local citizens have built their lives;and operate as “all-consuming environments,” meant… Read More
