DO NOT ADD VALUE
Indoor storage units won’t add to neighborhood value (“Town and Country Shopping Center sells to Miami developer,” May 25). I see the article says that (Ward 7 Alderman) Joe McMenamin was told they were making storage units and he was all for it. To revitalize the district, we need restaurants and shops, but no more collection points or securities, nor furniture storage.
NEED TRADER JOE
They obviously don’t know Springfield and what we really want. My vote would be for a Trader Joe’s.
The city turned down potential development ideas for the former Esquire property, which seemed perfectly legitimate. Are they going to be okay with the storage units?
JUST SAY NO
Another low rent use to bring down the surrounding neighborhood. I hope the city council puts the kibosh on it!
Scott Reeder can take us back in time with clarity like no one else (“Remembering the Butterflies,” May 26). We anticipate each column.
“Remembering Butterflies” and “It Runs in the Family” (June 2) are two tales that reminded me of my youth with parents who were teenagers during the Great Depression and how they learned to improvise. Or the time I brought home a puppy that someone had abandoned and told them he had followed me home. George has been my pet for several years. I laughed and cried at Scott’s comic description of events.
We are delighted with this new team (“The Lucky Horseshoes come to town”, June 2)! My husband and I, along with a few friends, are members of “Silver Shoes”. I can’t wait for opening day!
WELCOME TO NEW IDEAS
I wish the Lucky Horseshoes only the best. Thank you for coming to Springfield and bringing new ideas. Don’t listen to hate, some people don’t like anything new or different.
