songpyeonChuseok 추석 (Korean Thanksgiving) by Jessica:

Chuseok, or Harvest Festival, is also originally known as Hangawi (한가위).  My favorite part of Chuseok is the food.  Right before sunrise on the morning of Chuseok, we perform Chaerye (차례), a common ancestral memorial rite.  After the family pays respect to their ancestors, we gather around to eat.

REO Town: Beware of the Art

Here at the Impact, we want to bring you the best events and activities in the Mid-Michigan area all year, so stay up to date with the Impact89FM News team be the first to hear about what’s happening in your community.

REO Town is a district directly south of downtown Lansing that has become a hub for Michigan artists, and this Saturday, the REO Town Commercial Association is hosting their fourth annual Art Attack. REO Town President, Ryan Wert, describes the event as, “a traditional art fair combined with an eclectic local music festival”, and while the event will host 15-20 art vendors and 10 bands, the real stars of the show will be the artistic competitors, where 7 to 8 individuals will compete to create the best works out of an assortment of materials. Past years have featured such items as reclaimed materials from gutted demolish-ready houses, but this year, attendees can enjoy REO town favorite food and beer as they watch the artists cut, paint and weld donated city trash cans over the course of 6 hours to create their masterpieces.

The event is tomorrow, Saturday 9/05, from noon to 9pm in the Riverview Parking Lot (1123 S Washington Ave). More information can be found on their Facebook page.

East Lansing City Council Approves Taxi Authority

By Aaron Martinez

During Tuesday’s East Lansing City Council meeting, the assembly approved a municipal partnership agreement to create the Greater Lansing Taxi Authority. The partnership with the City of Lansing aims to create a single unified set of regulations to help protect both riders and drivers from the often inconsistent regulatory rules. The authority documents also create new regulations for ridesharing services, like the apps Uber and Lyft, which will allow these services continue to operate in the Lansing area as other cities have threatened to eliminate them.  This agreement came to be as the result of collaboration between East Lansing Mayor Nathan Triplett and Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero.

The partnership agreement must now be approved by the Lansing City Council, and city leaders in both Lansing and East Lansing are confident that the measure will pass when it comes up for a vote in the near future.
