Congrats to 3 Minneapolis neighborhood organizations for receiving national recognition for their community newspapers. Lyndale, Corcoran and Standish-Ericsson neighborhood orgs all publish top-notch papers, mostly written and edited by volunteers. This community journalism plays a huge role in creating an informed and involved citizenry. Here’s my brief story at Twin Cities Daily Planet.
Jill, a state employee bracing for a government shutdown in Minnesota who shared her thoughts with The Intelligencer.

Yep, this. Over and over and over again.
Kassie Church, with an interesting point in the comments section on our story about vacant properties in Minneapolis.
Of course, any industrious copper thieves plugging “vacant properties in Minneapolis” into Google will find the city source file for this map first. It’s public data.
I’d imagine they can tell just fine by walking around. But Kassie makes a good point, as does MinnPost.
Hey! That’s me!
This kills me.
