Euphoria: Everything must go — and they mean it this time!
After more than a year of fits and starts in their quest to sell the vintage clothing/accessories boutique and move to Portland, Ore., Euphoria co-owners Pat Marken and Tausha Lell are finally getting the giddy-up and liquidating everything in stock in the house-turned-store at 712 Congress St. The pair finally found a credit-worthy buyer and closed on the house recently — the final and critical detail in packing their bags and heading to Tausha’s home state where they plan to open a gumbo/Cajun/soul food mobile food-vending operation, or something like that.
Beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 10, Euphoria will throw open the doors and keep them open until every last item — vintage clothing and furniture, vinyl records, costume- and fine jewelry, home accessories, mannequins, every damn thing — has left with a happy new owner.

Is it a crime for citizens to photograph, video, or take notes of a police officer in the line of duty, or a right protected by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution? Locally, such activity, as witnessed recently, will at the very least result in a night spent behind bars.
