Preparing for 2021 (Part 2 of 2)

Posted by Elwin Green on November 10, 2020 at 10:00 PM Comments comments (4)


This is the second in a 2-part series. The first part is here.


Yesterday, I stated my first goal for 2021: "in 2021, I want to add $1 million to Homewood's economy by helping at least 20 Homewood residents earn at least $50,000."


I then said a little about why...

OPINION: The Worst Is Yet To Come

Posted by Elwin Green on September 30, 2020 at 3:55 PM Comments comments (68)



For months now, I have done nearly all my writing on Twitter, due to issues I don't have time to discuss right now.


I'm back.


This post is not specifically Homewood-related, but it's about a bit of national news that could affect Homewood - namely, last night's verbal altercation between Joe Biden, Donald Trump and Chris Wallace (I refuse to call it a debate).

Markets Plunge Amid Coronavirus Concerns

Posted by Elwin Green on February 27, 2020 at 6:55 PM Comments comments (112)


(Since this story is about investing, here's an investment image, showing what has happened recently with a slice of Tesla stock - not even a share, just a slice - purchased in Jan 2018 for $25.00.)


I need to do a piece (or a series?) sometime about what stock market activity means for Homewood, and for neighborhoods like it. I see no obvious connection, so whatever I do would have to suss out non-...

The Disappearance of Donald Trump

Posted by Elwin Green on November 20, 2019 at 9:10 PM Comments comments (6)


On October 13, the night of the last Democratic debate, I wrote:

 

I tuned in to the Democratic debate a little late. Joe Biden was speaking - apparently, about funding a new fight against cancer - and within 60 seconds, he said, "...once we get rid of Donald Trump."


I've put off saying this for at least a month. But here goes.

Stepping Up Homewood's Media Game

Posted by Elwin Green on April 23, 2019 at 7:35 AM Comments comments (27)


HOMEWOOD NATION'S NEXT ITERATION WILL NOT LOOK LIKE THIS. AT ALL. I PROMISE.


A meeting being held at the Homewood Carnegie Library next week will offer residents the chance to voice their concerns to journalists about how the neighborhood is covered by local media.


It will also offer those residents the opportunity to help change the coverage, by learning to "commit act...

Open House Shows Off Apartment Renovations

Posted by Elwin Green on October 22, 2018 at 1:15 PM Comments comments (44)

THIS IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW, WHILE I’M WRITING.


A Homewood apartment building that once lost its Section 8 subsidy is holding an open house today to show off the renovations performed by its new owner.


The six-unit building at 7301 Hamilton Avenue was part of Bethesda Homewood, a real estate portfolio of more than 100 units that failed inspections by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for three years in a row before HUD pulled the po...

Of the Queen, her queendom, and Homewood estates

Posted by Elwin Green on August 22, 2018 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Hey y'all -


It's been so long that it's going to take me a minute to get back into practice, to reconnect with the flow. So this is just a practice piece, and I'll keep it short.


Homewood and the rest of the planet suffered a loss last week with the passing of Aretha Franklin, at the age of 76. Just three years ago, she showed that she was still - well, a goddess, basically - when she brought down the house during the Kennedy Center's honoring of Carol King...
