  1. I think this city needs to SERIOUSLY rethink it’s 87 million ill conceived
    urban renewal plan.
    What good is any of that going to do for us if there’s not a city to come to?
    3 days of intermittent power and internet service- that’s the problem that
    needs fixed, evacuations, closed roads, a real tourist destination.

  2. Shame on you,you posted this on September 11th of all days, thousands have died on this day 19 years ago.it is tragic and sad about what is going on this world, have a heart,empathy and kindness,we are all humans ,it doesn’t matter what you look like,we all need to come together and help each other. God bless all of our firefighters and brave people are stepping up to help all that are in need and in sorrow and loss,God bless you all
