Well, the street fair was a success. Many thanks to Katie Mayer for managing the fair and to Sydney Mead for marshalling the parade participants. Businesses on Division displayed their goods and the vendors clustered on Clinton.

It appears that Walgreens is not going to buy Rite Aid, although they will buy a number of individual stores back east. Our store at Division and Chavez may remain as is, nothing is known for sure yet.
Dr. Samuel Adelman, Portland Eye Care at 41st and Division, has eclipse glasses available for $3. If the sky is clear, about 90% of the eclipse will be viewable. Join OMSI at their viewing party in their parking lot. Find a hill with no trees blocking the sky to the east. Don’t look at the eclipse without your eclipse glasses!
Vent, selling curated silver jewelry, opens early August at 3320 SE Division. Clay’s Smokehouse is moving into the former Loon at SE 28th.
