REPORTER’S NOTEBOOK | North Minneapolis


We’ll tell you what the judge decides on the flurry of lawsuits around last winter’s Jordan Area Community Council controversy as soon as the decision is made (probably the week of July 6). What do you think about what’s been going on at JACC, in Jordan, and around the Northside? Tell us what you know – and what you think we should be covering.

Here’s the story: Judge says new majority still in charge

We have recently published several other Northside stories:

more lawsuits, this time against Johnny Northside and others who have written about former JACC executive director, Jerry Moore.
UROC — the University of Minnesota’s on-again, off-again effort to connect with the community.
Northside Achievement Zone, a grant-funded effort to do something like the Harlem Children’s Zone – but without the leadership, money or programs.
• Elections – articles by or about Marcus Harcus and Barb Johnson.
