A mention in the Killian Newspaper

Fellow sprawl-haters, I regret that I haven't posted in nearly a month. I'm quite busy teaching and honestly quite sick about Parkland.

I'm scared the men and women who clogged our roadways and plowed over farmland are going to keep getting what they want. Tax money for a baseball stadium? Sure! Parkland? Why not!

We had so many citizens speak out against Parkland at the community council meeting and it meant nothing. It was a foregone conclusion.

Even in the face of an economic meltdown, we aren't able to honestly evaluate the reasons how we got here. We just gotta get the hammers pounding to keep the growth machine sputtering ahead.

This isn't sustainable.
