Along with this expansion
of industry, Everett says the
city should increase its stock of
low income housing to make it
easier for blue-collar workers to
live in the city.
Focusing on the deteriora-

Everett stresses the necessity
of preserving the city's central
business district, not through
"wider streets or more parking

structures," but by pushing foi

One way of doing this, Walz

Like her opponent, Walz sees
preservation of the downtown

Star Trek revival takes off

where he will meet with other
chairmen of Star Trek fan clubs
from across the nation.
