EPUD’s bickering board members fare well on the pay scale

The ugliness was embarrassing. Two members of the board of directors of Emerald People’s Utility District were arguing over who called whom nasty names after their Aug. 2 meeting, when the board had voted to disclose details of alleged chronic squabbling between board member Katherine Schacht and General Manager Frank …

Watchdog Group Auto-Tunes EmX Criticism

What do LTD’s EmX bus service and singing in auto-tune have in common?

 

Not much, until a watchdog group put the two together in a new music video claiming EmX has poor ridership.

 

Using something as simple as smartphone, members involved with Lane County Citizens for Responsible Government compiled their first music video.

 

It’s called “That EmX Bus is Empty.”

 

It was posted just a few days ago and while it doesn’t boast the catchiest tune, the video already has hundreds of hits.

 

This music video isn’t the latest gem produced by auto-tune master “T-pain” or any other pop music icon for that matter.

 

Instead, the video, the pictures, and the singing are all the work of Kevin Prociw.

 

You might remember Prociw from his countless hours of protesting the renaming of the Beltline Highway.

 

Now he’s back at it again. And this time, there are no cardboard signs and markers, just a smartphone and the help of an app.

 

“Ha, ha! You can tell by the video that I’m not very musically inclined,” said Prociw.

 

What Prociw is tuned into is the tech world.

 

After a few shots and clicks of a mouse, just type “That EmX Bus is Empty” and you’ll join the hundreds who already have.

 

“If something isn’t working here on Gateway, then what’s the likelihood it’s going to work on West 11th?” Prociw said.

 

Prociw admits his group supports EmX, saying the route linking Eugene and Gateway is a success.

 

But he says EmX ridership to Gateway is too low to make much sense for expansion into the rest of the county.

 

“I could go out and shoot a similar video showing times when the buses are completely full all of the time,” said Andy Vobora, LTD employee.

 

Vobora says the music video is a biased depiction of EmX ridership.

 

Vobora says the video was shot during a time when numbers are typically low for a college town.

 

Furthermore, Vobora says the Gateway line doesn’t have the same trip generators as the Eugene line does.

 

“Having only been in service for about five or six months, it’s probably a little too early to make a judgment about how successful the ridership is,” Vobora said.

New Coffee Shop to Open in Downtown Eugene

Owners of a new coffee shop think it can succeed in a downtown location where other businesses have failed.

 

Pam Cordua and Brad Smith are Lane Community College culinary students who are starting up their own business.

 

Together they are going to serve coffee, baked goods and sandwiches on the corner of Broadway and Charnelton.

 

The owners believe there is always great business for good coffee, and look forward to customers coming from the future downtown LCC campus.    

 

“Five-hundred students going through there each day, so I mean a lot of them will surely look this way and be like oh cafe, let’s go get a bite to eat,” Cordua said.

 

“Really eclectic down here, so you have to have some sort of cultural diversity about yourself, you can’t be pinned into one segregated something,” Smith said.

 

Sine Cura Cafe is scheduled to open September 1.
