Re: “Super Cooper Tower gets rubber stamp

Knowing my high school jouralism teacher, she would expect that the foundational element of any story be fact, even if the writer has some agenda, spin, irony, or sarcasm that they are trying to draw out. I am baffled by the 'gripping' phrase "inspired by nature, brought to you by develpers" because I have no concept of how that description applies to this building? There is no picture or description, such as the one reportedly given to city council. There is no discussion of why City Council was so impressed with the proposal or what concerns they may have had. Did you attend the council meeting or just pick up the sound bites from the Gazette's reporter? Which leaves me to wonder why the headline reads that the project got a "Rubber Stamp"? I would have liked to hear more about how this project fits into the downtown plans for more residential re-development. If there are true critics of this project, lets hear their points of protest. To simply assume that all development and developers are having a negative impact on our precious way of life is foolish. After all Mr. Stanley, you and your family, many of your friends, and your employer would not exist in this economy if developers did not cordinate the construction of homes, offices, medical campus facilities, etc. Without thier tax revenue, our streets, roads and bridges would be in an evan greater state of disrepair. Our water and wastewater systems would be out of date and plagued with more financial and repair problems than imaginable. Would we have the hospital and health care facilities that the citizens of this city enjoy in thier times of need? These are all tough questions that require one to take thier core values into consideration. How much growth is too much. What types of growth are problematic and what types of growth help the economy while having a minimal negative effect on services and the environment. Those are some of the topics I would have tried to cover in such a report. I thought you guys where the Independent Media working to keep truth and justice in print. Buy your stories seem to read more and more like propaganda for the anti-focus on the family. I am certainly not in line with Focus on the Family, for the sake of science, god, and society; please just try and print news with facts and journalistic integrity. There are several neighborhood newspapers in this city that seem to have that focus, and I will stick to reading them for local news.
