Re: “Christmas Comes to West Memphis

Mimi, you're sending your child to a school where ignorance is okay and then you want to get upset when someone living in their mother's basement takes advantage of it.

Re: “A Lot to Think About

It has been shown that the plans developed by PHD needlessly pave almost 3 acres of park land. You can see the plans by joining the FB group Stop Hurting Overton Park (https://www.facebook.com/groups/StopHurtin…) and PHD's excessive plans at the city's website (http://www.memphistn.gov/Government/Execut…).

Please write to PHD at the address Karen provides above. Ask them to modify their plans to reduce the amount of park land paved. The easiest way to do this is to remove the ring road. Happily this also has the effect of separating the park and its users from the sights, sounds, and smells of hundreds of moving vehicles.

Didn't they rework and raise these same bridges about 10 years ago?

Re: “Greenspace, the Group that Bought the Parks, Took the Confederate Statues Down

If politicians didn't profit, nothing would get built or removed. Nonetheless, good riddance to bad rubbish.

I can not stop thinking about Doug Jones as Abe Sapien in this role. It is killing me.

Re: “Greenspace, the Group that Bought the Parks, Took the Confederate Statues Down

CL-
Agreed. In this case, I think Memphis Greenspace sounds like a good group whose efforts have already created public value and will be honestly working to turn both spaces into great public parks.

However, if we are going to make a habit out of selling public parks, I just hope that there is more transparency in the future so that the public has a chance to understand the safeguards to protect these public space assets for future generations.

596 S. Cooper...(The reporter erred in assuming that everyone knows where the old Curb Market spot was located.)

Re: “City Council Votes to Remove Confederate Statues

Mr Brown,
I hope you are not saying that the reason the city took so long moving the statues in defiance of a toothless state law was to set up some way local politicians could rake in a big payday.
Why that goes against everything we hold dear about our political system.
