Today’s Headlines

Featured Headline: Long Beach has been leading the way in a lot of progressive transportation programs in the last several years, and a student journalist at Voice Waves has an idea on what the next frontier should be: alleys.  “Imagine walking down the street and just as you walk past an alley, you suddenly realize that there is a huge archway. You look in and an array of bright plants, flowers, art work, fountains and sculptures are beaming back at you. This once dark, foreboding place is now an eighth of a mile that you would gladly make a detour for.”  At the Long Beach Post, Brian Uluszewski agrees with the concept.
