Soundcheck: The Prids


Music

Matt Carney
The Prids survived more social shake-ups than most families. Fifteen years, a handful of city-to-city moves, a marriage and a divorce ago, there were just David Frederickson and Mistina La Fave, who started making music together in a little corner of Missouri.

Counterpoint: Streetcar budget defies reality


Commentary

Nancy K. Anderson
Now that the 4.5-mile downtown route for the MAPS 3 streetcar — Phase 1 — has been decided, the challenge will be to get it completed at a cost anywhere near the amount budgeted. The experience in other cities indicates it will cost far more to build — and to keep it running — than we’ve been told.
