Portland Center Stage (PCS) Presents Sweeney Todd

Sweeney Todd

Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim Libretto by Hugh Wheeler Directed by Chris Coleman Widely acknowledged as Stephen Sondheim’s musical masterpiece, Sweeney Todd is set amongst London’s seedy side streets and laced with Sondheim’s characteristically brilliant wit and dark humor. This landmark musical depicts the barber Sweeney Todd’s savage quest for justice and retribution after years of false imprisonment. Aided by harridan pie shop owner Mrs. Lovett, who is secretly in love with him, he sets out to avenge the wrongs done to him and his family. Combining comic turns and chilling drama, music hall-style numbers and hauntingly beautiful romantic songs, Sweeney Todd offers a fascinating portrait of a man driven to madness by injustice.

Bon Appétit presents Feast Portland: A Celebration of Oregon Bounty

Bon Appétit presents Feast Portland: A Celebration of Oregon Bounty
Oregon’s soil produces amazing fruits and vegetables. Our vineyards grow grapes that make award-winning wines. Our hops are the reason Portland has more breweries than any other city in the world. Our ocean provides sustainably caught salmon, Dungeness crab and tuna. And our beef, pork and chicken are organic and raised to the highest standards. We grow much of the world’s hazelnuts, marionberries and green beans. And our forests are home to so many exotic mushrooms the Japanese have us on speed dial. Best of all, we have marvelous chefs who know what to do with all this abundance. So we decided it’s high time we had our own world-class celebration of food, drink and everything else that makes Portland awesome. We’re calling it Feast Portland.

Real Estate News; Nedco foreclosure advisers set up in Oregon City

Nedco foreclosure advisers set up in Oregon City

A Springfield nonprofit is expanding the corps of housing counselors serving the Portland area with a new Oregon City office.

The Neighborhood Economic Development Corp. — known as Nedco — will have a staff of three foreclosure counselors and two assistants in the Oregon City office. It will be the first such agency in Clackamas County and the fourth in the metro area to provide foreclosure counseling for homeowners.

To meet increased demand, legislators allocated $3million to hire 26 housing counselors throughout the state. Oregon Housing and Community Services put special emphasis on areas deemed underserved, including the Portland area.

Clackamas County was one of Oregon’s hardest-hit in the foreclosure crisis. In June, 127 homes started the foreclosure process — though not necessarily for the first time — and 92 were repossessed by banks.

 

The Neighborhood Economic Development Corp. is opening an office today to serve Clackamas County and the rest of the metro: Foreclosure counseling

Where: 421 High St., Suite 110, Oregon City 97045

Phone: 503-655-8974

Oregon City Real Estate Review

Oregon City Stats & Review

Overall the Oregon City market is still a buyer’s market. Interest rates are still at all time lows and the average market time is at 87 days. When the year to year price comparison is relatively unchanged and the average sales price percent change is up significantly from last year at this time I have to look at more factors such as inventory and market time and give it a current price trend rating of Appreciating.

Oregon City’s Average Sales Price Percent Change is -0.2% ending July 2012 compared to Oregon City’s Average Sales Price Percent Change ending July 2011 was -9.6% or an increase of 9.4% comparatively.

Average Sales Price Percent Change is a good conservative indicator for determining if a market is appreciating or depreciating. *This is the 12 month rolling average for sales price which takes the rolling average sales price over her last twelve months (8/1/11- 7/31/12) and compares it to the rolling average sales price of the previous 12 months (8/1/10-7/31/11).

Oregon City, Oregon’s Current Real Estate Climate When comparing July’s results this year, (2012) to last year (July 2011) here is what you will find:

The average homeowner’s equity decreased by $-4,800 or -1.92% of value.

Number of closed sales for July 2011 was 82.
The July 2012 supply of homes stands at 6.7 months, up 23%.
July 2011 supply of homes was 8.73 months.

The time it takes on average from when a homeowner lists their home for sale to when a home has an accepted offer is 87 days. This number is down 60 days (The July 2011 Total Marketing Time ended at 147 days).
