Proclamations, Presentations, Move to the PreShow

Sometimes, a little housework can make life easier. The City Council made a decision at the Monday August 22nd meeting to move things along a bit faster in the future by offering proclamations and presentations ahead of the meeting, and not as the first part as they have been until now.

In May, they listened to moms, dads, and workers around the country and updated the overtime rule. This was a HUGE win: 12.5 million workers, including 6.4 million women, many of whom are moms, will be able to get paid for [...]

Wende Museum’s New Show – Eye of the Beholder

I agree with Wende Museum executive director and founder Justinian Jampol; the current exhibit, which opened to a standing room only crowd on Sunday, is my favorite. Museum curator Joes Segal (pictured left) breaks with museum tradition and presents at least two ways to view each artwork in the show by placing contrasting interpretations on either side of each piece. “It is up to the viewer [...]

Proposed Law Assures Children Will be Treated as Victims, Not Criminals

A person under the age of 18 will be treated as a victim of sex trafficking, entitled to treatment, rather than being charged with criminal prostitution if apprehended for commercial sex, under a proposed law that has passed the Assembly. “When sex for pay with a minor is solicited or occurs, the law should charge the pimp, charge the so-called ‘john’, but help the child,” said State [...]
