The ex-Takahashi may not quite be Ichiban (best) in Portland but it's up there with places more expensive and has a great family n' friends atmosphere. (Hint:s They have baby seats for the sushi counter! And show up right at 11:30 or after 1:30 to ensure booth seating during weekdays.)
Great fish, decent service and the best sushi value in Portland.
It would have been nice for this story to include the issue of the upcoming bond measure that would increase property taxes to cover capital improvements for fire and rescue. (Maybe it was not proposed until after this story was written?)
One would think cap ex for fire and rescue would be covered in the city budget. But why budget when you can just ask more from the taxpayer? It works for schools, let's try it for the fire dept!
And I really don't get the photo. It's confusing without a caption, and why include a picture of the author when a file photo of a fire station or fire truck would do just fine.
But I loved the homage paid to Matt Davis which the "hey-I-recognized-someone-from-city-hall-on-the-street-and-they-did-something-silly-and-now-it's-news-because-I-said-so" reference to Fritz' graffiti cleanup. Next time, for extra credit, try to get her to curse at you and publish the quote in the paper.
Just throw some right wing political lawn signs on the soccer field and he'll be there in a flash.
What this article needs is a few more dramatic pictures of the author. Only two?
Great reporting, despite the iPhone-camera-like picture.
Matthew, let me explain it in one sentence: You don't make any sense.
yeahThatsRight, you need to provide a link with information about increased contributions that will be required from the Blazers org under this plan. Can't just make stuff up that's Matt's job.

He is. He is buying the team and renting the stadium. What, you expect a tenant to remodel the city's stadium for free out of the goodness of his heart? If so can you contact me about renting my house?

There is so much stupid in that paragraph, let me pretend you have a point and try to respond. 1) The city is subsidizing a living wage so those beer-sellers are pretty good jobs. 2) Improvements to a city-owned facility is pretty much the definition of investing in our city. 3) All the folks that buy season tix will be helping create new jobs for all the folks that work at PGE Park, the sports clinic and the soccer team.

I did, I just thought they were being funny, because no one would be that petty and stupid, right?
Awesome way to prove the doubters wrong Merc. You guys are a regular 60 Minutes.
