We need a new kind of citizenship, so that we can see citizens as themselves earning the rank of patriot because of their involvement in their community affairs... We as a society need to be encouraging people to focus not just on individual wants but on serving the larger community.
The development of North Ada Co. and other stories
Spent way more effort than you'd imagine to come up with this little story about urban renewal, just because Mike Moyle weighed in on Dave Bieter's supposed "power grab." I didn't follow the urban renewal thing when it was hot in the 2011 legislature, and haven't kept close track of all the development ideas for N. Ada since the real estate bubble popped.
If there is more I should know (or say), tell me.
