Unnamed sources revealed today that after these and two or three more remaining "eye-sores" around the city are demolished, large portions of the city will be fenced off and bids will be accepted from area dairy-farmers who will pasture their herds, then collect and mix the resulting manure with the hot-air that is in constant supply from city hall, yielding enough methane to power large portions of the city for free!!

Gossip has it that South Main is an eyesore and will be destroyed as a means of city beautification. Where and when to start is the question on the lips of the citizens. The only property that deserves to remain from south of the tracks to Dunlap is Saint Vincent. Everything else being removed might accomplish the eradication of many unwanted elements.

I detect some bias and agenda here in this article - The headline says that the building is an eyesore and then the entire point of the article is "Don't let the new windows and finish fool you - The building is structurally unsafe!"

I don't understand what the point of the misleading article is - why not just simply say that the building is structurally unsafe?

I do hope that there is the same kind or architectural salvage used here that was used on the Armory.  This is a 100 year old building - there is nice old distressed wood that could be used in furniture and new windows that could be used in a habitat or LaCasa home....etc.

Dan Spaulding is by nature an excellent reporter - What is going on with this article Truth  and the misleading headline!
