ACORN members rally for safety at the corner of North Midway and Fessenden Streets as cars zoom past on Friday, Sept. 26 during rush hour. All summer, ACORN members say, they've sent letters to the Portland Traffic Engineer, Robert Burchfield, and Commissioner Sam Adams, inviting them out to the streetcorner to see the need for a crosswalk – so far no officials have taken them up on the offer. The group argues that school children are forced to cross the dangerous street many drivers drive well over the posted 25-mile per hour speed limit. Left to right, Cassandra Patterson, Aimee Olin, Dan Bell, and Robert Simmons escorted pedestrians across the street while holding up signs calling for street safety.
