The familiar image of Los Angeles as a metropolis built for the automobile is crumbling. Traffic, air pollution, and sprawl motivated citizens to support urban rail as an alternative to driving, and the city has started to reinvent itself by developing compact neighborhoods adjacent to transit. As a result of pressure from local leaders, particularly with the election of Tom Bradley as mayor in 1973, the Los Angeles Metro Rail gradually took shape in the consummate car city. Railtown presents the history of this system by drawing on archival documents, contemporary news accounts, and interviews with many of the key players to provide critical behind-the-scenes accounts of the people and forces that shaped the system. Ethan Elkind brings this important story to life by showing how ambitious local leaders zealously advocated for rail transit and ultimately persuaded an ambivalent electorate and federal leaders to support their vision. Although Metro Rail is growing in ridership and political importance, with expansions in the pipeline, Elkind argues that local leaders will need to reform the rail planning and implementation process to avoid repeating past mistakes and to ensure that Metro Rail supports a burgeoning demand for transit-oriented neighborhoods in Los Angeles. This engaging history of Metro Rail provides lessons for how the American car-dominated cities of today can reinvent themselves as thriving railtowns of tomorrow.

This third book in a series continues the adventures of Zack, a handsome and intelligent donkey, and his donkey friends Zelda, Willie, and Pedro. Zack and his three donkey friends are faced with a new problem. Unless the horses on Mr. Bumbys horse ranch join the farm animals at the new Donohue Historic Farm Center, the center is not likely to be successful. Believing that the horses have more talents than just running races, Zack and his friends must find a way to discover those talents. Again, using one of Profound Pigs brilliant ideas, Zack and his friends begin a new positive mission. With the help of Profound Pigs uncle, Professor Pig, they begin to teach the animals to look for the good in others. The idea is to see a good quality or talent in another animal, tell them about it, and ask them to use it to help others. With this new idea, the horses do discover their other good talents and decide to use them at the new Donohue Historic Farm Center. This new idea of Professor Pig is called validation of others. It is so successful that it becomes the new mission of Zack and the Validators, the name Zack and his donkey friends take on as a new singing group.

At the turn of the century Sudbury was a town set on the railway line, with a population of about 2,000. The community was smaller than Sault Ste. Marie and Copper Cliff to the west, and to the east, North Bay and Pembroke. Now, nearly 100 years later, Sudbury is the largest city in northeastern Ontario. it is also the centre of many governmental, business, social, educational, media, medical, and other professional services in the region. Sudbury: Rail Town to Regional Capital, which honours the centenary of the community’s incorporation as a town in 1893, analyses Sudbury decade by decade, describing the ongoing changes in the community and their impact on citizens. The book also examines the forces that shaped the city’s destiny and argues that Sudbury is far more than a single-industry town based on mining. Grounded in new research and written in an accessible style by a team of local scholars, the book, with numerous maps and photographs will appeal to urban historians as well as the general reader both within and beyond the city.
