comment ArcMap crashes when running model?
Might help if you have a screenshot of the model. Have you checked that the model runs for just one polygon before testing it on multiple ones? Have you considered running Polygon To Raster as a batch instead of building a model (if so, did that work)?

comment Why can't I use AddField_management in ArcPy?
This problem is almost always the feature class being open in ArcMap (or ArcCatalog), as you noted. As long as ArcPy is able to get a schema lock to add one field, however, it'll be able to handle many in a list :)

comment Field Calculator expression to replace string only if it occurs
This will strip characters after AVENUE (i.e. "AVENUE 131" just becomes "AVE" instead of "AVE 131")

comment Business/Economics GIS homework
If you have access to business analyst, it does have some territory assignment tools apparently. Buffers have the disadvantage of ignoring things like drive time.

comment ArcGIS Python code how to find if layer data is from an .mdb or a .gdb
This is a partial solution, but the OP would still need to get the path data from the layer before using this to determine the file extension :)

comment Adding layer to MXD from different SDE slows down ArcPy script
They're on different physical servers. (Ironically, the database guy said his connection to SDE #2 is always faster.) I can't copy the feature classes around without involving a lot of other folks in approving a schema change, etc. -- this is a massive corporate database :\
