Rose City registers some comings and goings

Today the producers behind Portlandia and Grimm announced they are moving operations out of Portland because the city's neighborhoods no longer feature a preponderance of well-built period homes that the shows are known for and that used to be one of the Rose City's trademarks.

In other news, Paul Scaralot has decided to take a sabbatical and install Wally Reamers as interim director of the Bureau of Development Services. "This just formalizes the great relationship we've had all along," said Reamers between licks of Salt & Raw's latest seasonal ice cream flavor, vanilla flecked with lead and asbestos particles.

"All we have to do is keep the permits coming, and count the money," his son said, who will be filling in full time for his father. "Basically, it's business as usual."
