Portland grocer Paul’s Food Center to close in April

Downtown Portland’s decades-old Paul’s Food Center is scheduled to close next month, leaving hundreds of regular customers to explore other options.

The family of the grocery store’s founder Paul Trusiani, who died in September last year, declared that it decided to shut down the store and sell the building. The store has been owned by the family since 1975.

Paul’s is a full-service grocery store with a freezer and meat case, fresh produce, canned goods, household cleaning products and everything in between.

4 Chinese men’s detention brings attention back to Chinese Exclusion Act

The recent detention of four Chinese men, who were caught by a Chinese inspector of immigration following a search of Bangor, has once again brought global attention back to the controversial Chinese Exclusion Act.

A deputy U.S. marshal arrived from Portland last Wednesday night to take charge of the four Chinese men, who were identified as Ng Hong Wah, Ng Goon, Goon Teung and Ng Sing.

An investigation revealed that the men were merely laborers, but they were held in a detention room of the city police station as if they were terrorists or smugglers.
