Hyattsville Life & Times – 11/10/16 by Brianna Rhodes

ustin Fair, the Economic Development Coordinator for Hyattsville Community Development Corp, said he believes that the Tanglewood Works pop-up shop has a lot to offer to the Arts District and the city of Hyattsville.

She [Sue] has been active in the Arts District, engaging in helping peoples homes and providing a stable business resource for the community and driving a real stable example of delivering artisan works to residents and to area stakeholders in a way that because she works in retail is a very welcome creative force for the city, Fair said.

She is choosing to locate on that corridor in a space that is heavily trafficked across from Franklins to the post office to Pyramid Atlantic. Shes recognizing the opportunity for an eye-catching appeal. Its a very notable corner and I think that you cant just have anyone there, Fair said. It requires something innovative and I think that its great that she is doing this for the holiday season.

More Perfect: Adoptive Couple v. Baby Girl

Episode

This is the story of a three-year-old girl and the highest court in the land. The Supreme Court case Adoptive Couple v. Baby Girlwas a legal battle that entangled a biological father, a heart-broken couple, and the tragic history of Native American children taken from their families.

When producer Tim Howard first read about this case, it struck him as a sad, but seemingly straightforward custody dispute. But as he started talking to lawyers, historians, and the families involved in the case, it became clear that it was much more than that. Because Adoptive Couple v. Baby Girlchallenges parts of the 1978 Indian Child Welfare Act, this case puts one little girl at the center of a storm of legal intricacies, Native American tribal culture, and heart-wrenching personal stakes.
