Re: “Nor'wood business district withdraws Scheels request

Terrific Piece of reporting, Pam! Your reporting has made a difference, a splendid example of just how much we need honest, alert reporting and the Fourth Estate.

Re: “Strawberry Fields' appraiser faces penalties for his work on the city's land exchange

Thank you for the superb article, Pam. Truly Pulitzer Prize quality. This is exactly the kind of scrutiny this crooked deal deserves.

And, I totally agree with the previous comment. Given the crookedness of the deal and lack of public input, I believe the deal should be undone.

Re: “Unlicensed vehicles are the norm on streets near The Broadmoor, tickets aren't

Bravo, Pam. As we all know, the Broadmoor is a power unto itself!

Re: “A conservation easement could settle some land-swap issues, but it's complicated

Great story! As a former board member of the Palmer Land Trust, I was under the impression that the Shamrock Ranch was secured by a conservation easement. I even attended the owner's book signing. He produced a large glossy coffee table book on the subject and was lauded for taking care of this beautiful and historic ranch. Here is proof again that nothing can truly protect the land except keeping it in public hands. I am sorry to see Palmer playing along to the extent they are.
