Extra! Extra!

In this hustle and bustle world, isn’t nice to know there’s one place you can always go and get a smile and a thank you, along with solid information? That’s your neighborhood Street Roots vendor on the job, holding down the corners and holding up the finest independent news source in Portland. The new edition arrives early Friday morning. Here’s what’s headed your way:

Head cases: Screening, tracking and treating traumatic brain injury on the street is possible. Stacy Brownhill continues our in-depth series on traumatic brain injuries and homelessness, and how health care systems networks for the homeless could get involved.

 Interstate and beyond. Jake Thomas gives a historical perspective on the impact urban renewal efforts in North and Northeast Portland, right as the city prepares to take it even further.

 Janet Byrd: Getting the policy ball moving forward begins with how we craft the message. Israel Bayer interviews the executive director of Portland’s Neighborhood Partnerships.

Diamonds are the poor’s best friend: An interview with environmentalist Saleem Ali about the benefits of a corporate structure, the dynamics of consumerism and the balance between green and greed.

And if that wasn’t enough, there’s commentary from the Western States Center, poetry from the streets, letters and art! Don’t forget to tuck a buck in your back pocket on the way out the door tomorrow, and get your copy of Street Roots first thing! Thank you!

    Saleem Ali should not be using the term “environmentalist” to describe himself. Some comments and one response by Ali concerning the interview printed here appears in the Seattle Real Change on line comments at http://www.realchangenews.org/index.php/site/archives/5575/
