O’Dea Steps Down
All the Flowers
Prince Planted
When pop superstar Prince died April21, fans all over the world
remembered his enormous creative output, his willingness to
challenge cultural norms and his battles with the music industry.
But many — including residents and former residents of North
Portland’s Boise neighborhood — also recalled a side of Prince
rarely discussed while he was alive: his generosity. Throughout
his career, the artist quietly gave to a wide variety of causes,
and during the period when he was most commonly referred
to as The Artist, he sent the Boise Neighborhood Association
$10,000 to help start a community garden. The initial garden
project failed due to a lack of irrigation to the garden site, but
the rest of the grant was used on small community greening
projects — such as planter pots on North Mississippi Avenue —
for the next several years.
Mayor Charlie Hales announced Monday morning that
Mike Marshman, a 25-year Portland Police Bureau veteran,
would step into the role of interim police chief following the
announcement that Larry O’Dea would retire. O’Dea had been on
paid leave — and the subject of separate criminal and internal
investigations — since May 24, after local media reported he had
accidentally shot a friend on an April camping trip in eastern
Oregon. At year’s end O’Dea was still battling criminal charges
in connection with the shooting, though the shooting’s victim,
Robert Dempsey, fi led a special motion Dec. 23 asking that
the case be dismissed. Mayor Charlie Hales initially appointed
assistant chief Donna Henderson to fi ll O’Dea’s spot; following
Henderson’s unexpected demotion to captain and subsequent
retirement, Hales promoted Captain Mike Marshman. Mayor-
elect Ted Wheeler has promised a nationwide search to fi nd a
new chief.

Whiteness History Month
ENTRY-LEVEL FIREFIGHTER
Throughout the month of April Portland Community College held a month-long series of lectures,
discussions and classroom activities called Whiteness History Month. The event grew out of a
series of email exchanges among PCC faculty and staff about the racial climate on PCC’s campuses
and nationwide, and garnered national attention — including from right-wing media that claimed
the event was intended to “shame” White people. Lectures focused on the historical and social
construction of Whiteness and how White privilege plays out in society, and organizers said it would
be a more specifi c, attention-grabbing name than “Racism Awareness Month.”
The City of Everett seeks a diverse group of qualifi ed in-
dividuals who are interested in a career that provides pro-
fessional and personal challenges and rewards. Please
visit PublicSafetyTesting.com and you will be able to fi ll
out your application online and select the testing date,
time and location most convenient for you. Filing closes

protest of the event and hosted its own awards ceremony to bring attention to Portland’s housing
crisis. The organization remained active throughout 2016, fi ghting evictions in specifi c building,
advocating for enforcement of rules governing short-term rentals and supporting city council
candidate Chloe Eudaly, who defeated incumbent Steve Novick in a November upset.
