“A heads up for photographers and others concerning the present Gilleran Field located in the vicinity of the Truman Waterfront Park area. Better take your photos now for future generations as that beautiful open lot and playing field will probably be a building development in the not too distant future. Maybe get some different photo[…]

“You said, ‘By law if we don’t have the shelter all those people can rightfully camp out and sleep wherever they want to without any legal ramifications.’ They camp out on my property and they will regret it, just like the last one who tried it.” “Regarding rights, I object to the large piles of[…]

“Will you people please stop with the ‘if you want to take care of the homeless take them into your home’ BS. Saying we don’t need a shelter is ignorant. By law if we don’t have the shelter all those people can rightfully camp out and sleep wherever they want to without any legal ramifications.[…]

“Wow, KOTS has no doors? Sounds inhumane. Maybe the city should just buy Ibis Bay and turn it into shelter with bar and food for the bums.” “One car-free Sunday per month would improve air quality, allow families to enjoy the great outdoors and peace and quiet and could be marketed to the visitors.” “Here[…]

“To the dim-witted blonde woman riding your bike against traffic on Simonton Street at 8:45 Monday night, as I turned right onto Simonton from Virginia, it’s a miracle that you’re still alive! I would have been traumatized, and you would be dead! Wake the —- up!” “Just how short is your memory? Regarding the naming[…]
