Re: Three Light

What is the likelihood that this project generates enough interest in the highway cap project? Would they provide any private funding to it? More residents along the trench will naturally drive interest in a cap. However, I doubt any profit seeking firm will cover the cost of a true cap unless they...

Re: Liberty Memorial Musuem and Penn Valley Park

Replacement trees were planted along the mall this spring. They have next to no root structure, and, as a result, blow out of the ground on windy days. They have been staked and still blow over. A good number are already dead. I don't understand why the Memorial is not better maintained. Is money t...

So where is the best place online to watch returns roll in?
Election Board websites and Twitter.
Early results show Jolie winning and Q1 loosing.
Looks like Jackson County has swayed the race to Quinten.

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

In regards to Icelandair: Flights are back up and running for the 2019 season. The first flight left with just a small handful of seats available. A few sample searches throughout June show about 70s-80s% of available seats have been reserved. That would be a ~90% rate on the 737 Max. Tampa was cut...

So now it's an incentive fight which is so annoying. I really hope this ends up at ccs. Crown center would be...fine.

If this ends up just being Sprint prison hq backfill, I'd rather them stay in dc
I don’t expect USDA to be able to convince anyone to leave DC for the Sprint Campus.

What percent ownership? How is it broken up? I'll say as a buyer don't mix me in with the renters.
Top floors are condo only (~20 units). Shared lobby with segregated elevator areas.
