Love it or hate it, our Power Exchange coverage has triggered some heated comments on our site lately. ML’s Angela Kilduff went back to talk to Mike Powers and reports that the sex club owner isn’t giving up and will be relocating soon. While you wait to see what happens, check out the Current video on the Powers family that Kilduff mentions in her article. The conservative upbringing, kids working at dad’s sex club … does anyone else see potential for a reality TV show?

On the urban fun front, we hear that swings aren’t only for BART anymore. There could be more swings around town. Watch the video here.

And here’s a daily reminder for our upcoming photo show:

Founder/Executive Editor. I’ve been a Mission resident since 1998 and a professor emeritus at Berkeley’s J-school since 2019 when I retired. I got my start in newspapers at the Albuquerque Tribune in the city where I was born and raised. Like many local news outlets, The Tribune no longer exists. I left daily newspapers after working at The New York Times for the business, foreign and city desks. Lucky for all of us, it is still there.

As an old friend once pointed out, local has long been in my bones. My Master’s Project at Columbia, later published in New York Magazine, was on New York City’s experiment in community boards.

Right now I'm trying to figure out how you make that long-held interest in local news sustainable. The answer continues to elude me.
