The best in poetry (and poetic things), this week with Lyla Lindquist. 1 Art As an insurance adjuster, I find the term “perfect storm” an unfortunate combination of words, unless we simply mean the sort of storm which generates a lot of business for me but in which no one is hurt and only easily […]

We buy a couple of corn dogs and head over to the free stage. My eyes wander off and I see a teenage girl standing on the back of a motorized wheelchair, lurching left and right, while her driver zig-zags across Main Street like a Hollywood stunt driver. I'm thankful city planners have shut down the streets to car traffic. Not just for the jazz festival. But so people can move, for four days, any way they choose.
