Our space, our place: Dispatch from a BIPOC ‘Frogger’ ride

Frogger friends.(Photo courtesy Mateen Richey) This story is by northeast Portland resident Mateen Richey, a new contributor who you might recall from our profile of him back in January. “At this ride, we were all people of color.” This is a dispatch in the month of Black History (the shortest month of the year). I was recently invited to a “Frogger” ride for BIPOC (black indigenous people of color). A “Frogger” ride is a ride that hops from road to wet dirt, singletrack to gravel roads, ...

Portland should lower more speed limits, legal expert says

A recently lowered speed limit sign on North Fessenden in the St. Johns neighborhood.(Photo: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) In January 2018, armed with the fact that about half of all fatal collisions in Portland involve speeding drivers, Portland City Council passed an ordinance to, “Reduce speed limit to 20 miles per hour on residential streets to support safe travel”. It established that a designated speed (set by a local road road authority) could be set five miles per hour lower than the ...

Guest opinion: It’s time to coalesce around Metro’s transportation measure

(Photo: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) For nearly two decades, transportation advocates and forward-thinking politicians around the region have talked wistfully about “The Big One,” the opportunity to ask voters to approve funding for a massive litany of transit, bicycle, and pedestrian projects all over the region. For the last eighteen months, a massive coalition of transportation wonks, social and racial justice advocates and climate hawks shot numerous spitballs at Metro and drew hard line...

UK Government criticised for 'incoherent' Africa strategy by House of Lords

The UK Government has been criticised for its “incoherent” Africa strategy ahead of the British troop deployment to Mali. In a new report by the House of Lords International Relations and Defence Committee they lambaste the government for what they see as a lack of a coherent UK strategy to its engagement with Africa. It adds that the ‘strategic approach’ launched in 2018 has failed to live up to its name, and is just a collection of broad ideas with little clarity on how to put them into action...

It’s cafes instead of cars as Portland restaurants expand into streets

Diners at Stormbreaker Brewing on North Lombard in St. Johns.(Photos: J.

And when calls for new uses of street space were made, it was often restaurant owners who lined up to say their business would perish without maximum access for car users. Then a pandemic hit and relatively overnight we’ve ...

Reviewing some more national and local accounts of (mostly declining) crime rates during a pandemic

In this post last week, I complained about a Bloomberg headline blaring that "Some Crimes Are Spiking in America’s Major Cities," even though the bulk of the data reviewed in the article detail that crime was down considerably in a number of cities.   Today I can flag this recent CBS News piece that reviews mostly positive crime news with a very positive heading "Miami goes seven weeks without a homicide for first time since 1957."  Here are excerpts: From February 17 until April 12 of this yea...
