Mixed feelings

The story itself is great however, some facts are repeated often and the volume is inconsistent, rising and falling constantly.

Very interesting

This was a very interesting story. It is very sad that the residents of this neighbourhood have to tolerate the derelict properties and the criminal element that goes along with them. What is sadder is that the City and mayor haven’t responded and don’t even want to talk to the reporter. I’m sure if there was a drug house in Iveson’s southwest neighbourhood, there would be action!
