They might have some more cash if they weren't paying for 2 chancellors.

Italiansburg says:
"The parents of these kids are motivated and held accountable for their kids actions and success."

I'd like to add that the kids are also held accountable by the parents for their actions and successes (and failures).

KEYT is an embarrassment to TV. It's amateur hour. I can't watch the news without screaming at the TV because of their abysmal technical standards.Of course, that would assume they have standards. KEYT is the video equivalent of the News Press.

"Everybody agreed that the school district could do more to help that effort by sending out informational mailers"

On whose dime? If the schools are in such dire straits they should be conserving resources, not using them to support a political campaign. The Independent will give the measures plenty of publicity and I'm sure the politicians will as well.

So what did SB get out of this? Did Caruso set a date to start demo and have it finished by a set date? Did he set a date to start construction? You know, one guy with a sledgehammer could demo that place in, I don't know, 7-8 years. Don't be surprised if he tries to get a property tax reduction when all that's left is dirt.

Note to Indy:
Using the headline 'State Street Retail Rundown' isn't the best choice of words. It's too close to the truth.

Truly a sad situation . Sentence way to short .
You're forgetting that the County has MUCH deeper pockets than that drunken asshat.

"But some neighbors welcomed the new facility with open arms. Councilmember Dale Francisco and Mayor Helene Schneider both expressed hope that by relocating the detox facility, City Hall could make it easier for Casa Esperanza managers to respond to neighborhood concerns."

This isn't very well written. Are Francisco and Schneider neighbors of the detox facility? Or, are you referring to the Milpas neighbors of Casa Esperanza?

"Subsequent press releases put a $1.5 billion price tag on this scaled-back project, much of which would come from New York hedge fund D.E. Shaw. According to some individuals close to the negotiation process, Rosenfeld’s sky-high plans have elicited concern from other Century City developers that the proposed new towers could encroach on their views. Rosenfeld’s modified plans are now undergoing environmental review.

Around City Hall—where the fallow Entrada has been a chronic embarrassment, not to mention a significant loss of potential tax revenues—such tales indicate Rosenfeld has the financial wherewithal to get Entrada built. "

Uh, so has construction started in Century City? I don't see how "most of which would come from New York hedge fund" equals having the money in an account. Using other people's money is nice, but look what happens when the "other people" decide not to lend it to you. Is this the same situation the Miramar is in? Very nice guys without their own cash? We've seen this movie before. Anybody remember the Carrilo Retirement Hotel?
