Re: “Under Construction

Like my Newport News, the City of Richmond is bound and determined to develop the downtown area where and how they want irrespective of the taxpayers' wishes. I applaud Paul Goldman's attempt to block Mayor Stoney and the Richmond city council in court regarding the Richmond Coliseum.

The ideal site would, indeed, be the Diamond area parcel on North Arthur Ashe Boulevard. Besides, I have always understood that the city owns several parcels at that site where a new coliseum could be built.

Re: “Out and Proud

Some lived on High St in Petersburg in the '70s. A lot are responsible for Petersburg's gentrification and renewal. I knew a couple that did reside there. I believe one partner is now deceased.

Re: “Best Neighborhood in Henrico County

"Wonderful Willow Lawn" was my neighborhood in Henrico County. The quote comes from the original Willow Lawn Shopping Center marketing campaign (long before the "Shops at Willow Lawn"). I really enjoyed living there; quiet and convenient in the '90s.

Re: “Richmond Triangle Players’ “Laramie Project” reminds us of how trauma can become a rallying cry

I was a devotee of the Richmond Triangle Players when I lived in Richmond. I regret that I'm unable to attend this poignant production. I recall this tragic, senseless murder in Laramie, Wyoming in 1998. May we never forget.
