North Portland — I hope your week is off to a good start. Mine is, but I just learned that our water will be shut off tomorrow for 8 hours as part of the Edison Street repaving project. Looks like the kids will be getting Burgerville for lunch tomorrow.
Putting the NOPO This Week podcast together takes a lot of time and work each week. I am still working out the processes I need in place to make it more efficient.
But I am blown away by all the news tips and story suggestions you all are sending me. Without your support, I don’t know if this is a sustainable endeavor. Thank you.
Next week, two of the stories I will be reporting on are Zombie homes and public murals. Let me know what you think on either topic. Is there a Zombie home near you? Do you have a favorite mural? Let me know.
