A park for the homelesss

A reader provides an opposing viewpoint -- and a photo -- to respond to Mayor Mark Stodola's declaration that he doesn't want to move homeless feeding programs from Riverfront Park.

I'm send these pics to you in response to the Mayor's "let them stay" attitude.  These are pics of our new Peabody Park from Sunday 1/17/10.  My friend's 3 yr old went to play in the playground tunnels & found the remnants of homeless camps, trash, & feces.  Why bother with LR developments if we're going to accept this type of outcome? It's a pitiful response to homelessness & it's unacceptable for the general public who want to enjoy a day in the park with their kids.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
