Being the amazing, true-to-life adventures and (very likely) misadventures of an Afghan war vet who seeks to take his education, activism and seemingly boundless energy to North Minneapolis, (NoMi) to help with a process of turning a rapidly revitalizing neighborhood into something approaching Urban Utopia. I am here to be near my child. The journalism on this blog is dedicated to my son Alex, age 15, and his dream of studying math and robotics at MIT. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Family, Family, Family At National Night Out!
Photos By John Hoff
Hawthorne's Chair, Peter Teachout, and JoyAnne Teachout brought their whole family to National Night Out and what a family it is! It's hard to believe "Papa Peter" is the same guy who was facing down drug dealers on 6th St. N., helping to clean up the Eco Village, sometimes at great personal cost.
The children in the family are Peter (oldest boy) Rose (oldest girl) McKenna (the one with red hair) and Baby Jack. Peter has nicknamed Jack "Satchel" because he spends a lot of time in a snuggly carrier.
