School Closing

The Minneapolis school district is having a hard time supporting all their schools and one school that might be closing is Tuttle Elementary on 18th ave. off of Como Ave. What does this school closing mean to the community? To the children that attend Tuttle? Where will the end up being bussed to for school? How with the neighborhood fair once the school is gone and a big empty structure of a school stares out at its neighbors? Will anything be done with the building or will it just stand empty? Some concerned neighbors fear that all the closures and lost of funding to Como Southeast Minneapolis neighborhood with cause this area of the city to become like Flint, Mich. A beaten down poverty sticken place.

In need of a roommate?

One of the trials college students go through during they college life is trying to find the right person to live with. Personally I've gone though 5 roommates, two were tolerable. During the beginning of fall semester and towards the end of the spring it is pretty easy to find someone to live with you if you need it. But if something happens mid year and a roommate moves out how do you fill that void? When none of your friends can move in where do you go looking for that person to split the rent with you?
