Extra! Extra!

Beat the chill with the oct0209page1hot, hot, hot edition of Street Roots, homemade and hand-delivered by your local vendor. Here’s what will be warming your cockles tomorrow morning:

High-flying Hawk: Skateboard phenom Tony Hawk twists, turns and soars with South African youths

With winter coming, the city explores where people can sleep – legally: Amanda Waldroupe reports on the latest talks by the city and advocacy groups to create alternatives for people on the streets, and the demonstrators who are calling for action now.

Police, “Cops” intrude on St. Francis diners: With a camera crew from the television show, police arrive just in time for the 5 p.m. dinner. Julie McCurdy, the Urban Gypsy, writes from her own perspective on the event.

The beggars come to the opera: Amanda Waldroupe interviews Portland’s Stephen Marc Beaudoin who has reinvented a musical based on well-known Portland personalities.

All this, plus an interview with hip-hop artist Speech, reports on Olympic-sized headaches for low-income renters in Vancouver, a preview of the 2010 census, the ministry of Tex Watson and a crossword puzzle most of our readers should be able to finish! Enjoy!
