The ODOT Cleveland Innerbelt Project's- Project Development Process (PDP) & Public Involvement Process (PIP) seem to be in limbo since the last public meeting on November 17, 2005.  ODOT's and City of Cleveland's PDP & PIP Schedule has not been followed and appears to be five (5) months behind schedule.  The "Alternatives Report" and the "Economic Impact Analysis" were scheduled to be completed in December 2005, for public review and comment.  THE REPORT AND ANALYSIS - DO NOT EXIST AT THIS TIME.  Even though the general public has been effectively removed from the public processes, a lot of activity has been going on since November 2005.  Below is a brief update on some of those activities.  Please visit www.neobridge.net to participate in this community discussion and to get the latest updates on OUR Cleveland Innerbelt Project.

Henry Louis Gates, Jr. chairs the event

One of the quiet treasures of northeast Ohio is taking place once again, administered by The Cleveland Foundation. The event's fact sheet summarizes its purpose in the following way:

  • Established in 1935, the Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards recognize outstanding
    books that contribute to our understanding of racism or appreciation of the rich diversity of human cultures.
       
  • The Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards is the only American literary competition devoted to recognizing books that have made an important contribution to society’s understanding of racism and the diversity of cultures.  Traditionally, an academic work and a work of fiction, poetry or memoir are selected each year. 

If you attend you will have a chance to meet the authors, hear them read their works, and buy their books. For more information (including the present winners and a list of past winners), visit www.anisfield-wolf.org. Although registration has not opened as of this writing, register well in advance of the event. In recent years they have had a capacity crowd.

About the Show:
Andrew Boroweic is well-known for his extraordinary eye. If you´re
bored with the ordinary photograph, this is the photography show to
come see.

Boroweic says that the challenge of finding art in photography is
similar to the challenge of finding poetry in language. The art
inheres in how the ordinary is made extraordinary - not because it´s
so different but because it´s often only a little different: just
different enough. Come see what he means in this show.

About the Gallery:
Founded in 2005, the mission of Gallery 324 is to showcase primarily
Ohio artists. Located in the Galleria at Erieview on the first floor,
near the Food Court, Gallery 324 is operated by Marcus Bales, a
Cleveland glass artist, in conjunction with Gary Roberts, a Cleveland
furniture designer.

Bread and Puppet Comes to Coventry

Bread & Puppet
Theater was founded in 1963 by Peter Schumann on New York City’s Lower East Side. Besides rod-puppet and hand-puppet shows for children, the concerns of the first productions were rents, rats, police and other problems of that neighborhood. More complex theater pieces, in which sculpture, music, dance and language were equal partners, followed. The puppets grew bigger and bigger. Annual presentations for Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving and Memorial Day often included children and adults from the community as participants. Many performances were done in the street. During the Vietnam War, Bread & Puppet staged block-long precessions involving hundreds of people. In 1970 Bread & Puppet moved to Vermont as theater-in-residence at Goddard College, combining puppetry with gardening and bread baking in a serious way, learning to live in the countryside and letting itself be influenced by the experience. In 1974 the Theater moved to a farm in Glover in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. The 140-year-old hay barn was transformed into a museum for veteran puppets. Our Domestic Resurrection Circus, a two-day outdoor festival of puppetry shows, was presented annually through 1998. The company makes its income from touring new and old productions on the American continent and abroad and from the sales of Bread & Puppet Press’s posters and publications. The traveling puppet shows range from tightly composed theater pieces presented by members of the company, to extensive outdoor pageants, which require the participation of many volunteers. Bread & Puppet is one of the oldest, nonprofit, self-supporting theatrical companies in this country.
