The Weekly Altweeky for May 28- June 3, 2014

Weekly Altweekly logo

Welcome again to our Thursday feature of the relevant news from our state’s altweekly papers. Often, it’s the alt weeklies where the real stories on local government leaders, new land development deals, citizen activism and new local laws affecting transportation and planning have their place. There’s also more arts and culture coverage too. Check out this post for an explanation of the beat and the tone of each paper listed. Just like our normal daily news, we will go by region, but several have different papers and those papers sound very different. I’ll initial beside each story in this roundup, so you won’t get too confused.
