Prostitution/narcotics/weapons bust; robberies of person, thefts at U of M; underage liquor sting in Seward
In our second look back at 40 years of neighborhood news, Bridgeland News Publisher Becky Clawson reflects on change and how important it is to record and remember.
In our third look back, former Seward Profile editors Todd Melby and sue rich recall keeping in contact — almost literally — with the community.
Former City Council member Paul Zerby recalls the headline issues that followed him to City Hall, as well as a constant connection from the past to the present.
Former reporter Cindy Collins recalls how her coverage of the rich West Bank music scene for the Seward Profile and The Bridge became the award-nominated book, West Bank Boogie.
Katie Fournier — Southeast Como resident, longtime Southeast Publications board member and former reporter — runs down the lineage of Southeast newspapers and the folks who made them possible.
When The Bridge newspaper came into being in 2005, it brought together the Seward Profile and Southeast Angle, connecting two areas of the city that were distinct yet had much in common. A reader, writer and board member share memories of all three papers.
Tomorrow: last installment — Former editor Chris Steller.
Chris Steller recollects his meteoric rise from delivering the Southeast newspaper to becoming editor of the Angle, Profile and Bridge. With his lifelong history in the neighborhood, Steller brought institutional knowledge and expertise to community news. He also visited a lot of porches.
Southeast Como residents Holly Day and Sherman Wicks hoofed it around the cities for their new book Walking Twin Cities, due out this month from Wilderness Press. It’s no surprise some of their favorite walks are right here in Bridgeland.
