    It's been a brisk 175 days - just under half a year - since Portland City Council last gathered for a public hearing on Commissioner Steve Novick and Mayor Charlie Hales' intensely controversial push to raise millions in new revenue for street maintenance and safety projects. It was a five-hour-plus ordeal.

    THERE'S A HIGH BAR for stage adaptations of beloved movies in Portland - see: Road House and The Lost Boys - but does that bar have an uncomfortably gyrating Nomi Malone dancing atop it? Hell no, it doesn't. So let's welcome to town Showgirls the Musical from A Touch Too Much, with their one-night performance of the best worst movie of all time: the 1995 cult classic about an ambitious Vegas stripper, a film that rung Elizabeth Berkley's bell, dragged Kyle MacLachlan's good name through the mud, and revealed Gina Gershon to be an effervescent jewel.

    Friday Nov 14 | The Pordland Mercury

    If you don't have a house, the city might wind up taking your belongings to one of its own. That picture above is the squat, unkempt home - owned by the Portland Water Bureau - where private security contractors stow the stuff they've confiscated in dozens of campsite sweeps in the last seven months .

    Dance Gavin Dance w/Secrets, Alive Like Me, Defeat the Low, Vigil Wolves; Branx, 320 SE 2nd The argument that Dance Gavin Dance was ever really a "punk" band is problematic - the group became a player long after emo and all of its variants were completely co-opted by the mainstream. So I'll make this argument instead: DGD's 2007 debut Downtown Battle Mountain is, at the very least, one of the most interesting mainstream-o records from that period.

    DENNIS ROSENBAUM , one of the three finalists looking to oversee Portland's federally mandated police reforms over the next several years, offered city leaders something no other applicant could match.

  19. Police Accountability Advocates Decry Apparent Choice of Police Reform LiaisonRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Nov 11 | The Pordland Mercury

    Two venerable police accountability groups - Portland Copwatch and the Albina Ministerial Alliance Coalition for Justice and Police Reform - have issued statements grumbling over the likely coronation of a Chicago-based team of academics that'll be fronted, locally, by retired Oregon Supreme Court Chief Justice Paul De Muniz. Both groups are noting that a citizen panel charged with vetting finalists for the job initially discounted the Chicago application, led by University of Illinois-Chicago professor Dennis Rosenbaum, in part because it wasn't clear how intensely De Muniz would be working in Portland.

    Wintry temps have reached us earlier than usual this year - gusting winds making already chilly air unbearable, the potential for freezing rain tomorrow - and with that weather comes potential danger for hundreds of Portlanders living without shelter. We put a call out yesterday to 211, the local agency that coordinates emergency shelter, asking if any emergency warming centers were in the works for the dropping temperatures.
