Re: “Opinion: On the 150th Anniversary of Baseball in Richmond a Boulevard Proposal Makes Sense

Rick Tatnall is a joke. I agree with Paul. We must focus on attracting the suburbs and tourists to downtown, and develop the Boulevard as densely as possible with retail, so the city has money to spend on education, infrastructure, and transportation. By doing this, we don't have to raise taxes, we have a vibrant downtown (with some sort of entertainment venue, stadium or arena), and we finally have the option to shop in the City, rather than the county. Common sense folks.

Re: “Roaming Concierges Coming to Church Hill For Bike Race

There should be a Church Hill Visitor's Center inside Captain Buzzy's. They have the window space!

Re: “The Way Out

The stubbornness of this city continues. This guy is from Nashville is on point. If we all just traveled to other cities and saw how other cities are all in to improve their cities, while all we want to do is stall progress. It's pathetic. Stop complaining about stupid issues, pick up a shovel, roll up your sleeves, and let's get to work!

Re: “Richmond Booker Bands Most Love to Play For

Not too friendly to professional disc jockeys. Did a charity event there and they shut me out from the entire crowd that I spent marketing dollars on to bring to their venue. Never felt more disrespected in my life. I have 38 weddings booked this year. We are entertainers too.

Re: “Protest Continues Against Privatizing Monroe Park

I really don't understand why people complain about companies spending their money in the community. If Altria wants to give the City $10 million to fix up an old theater, why is that a problem? If companies want to give money to a non-profit that wants to fix up a park, why is that a problem? If a developer wants to develop land in an entertainment district, why is that a problem? If a non-profit wants focus on economically developing downtown, why is that a problem? And then you call them greedy? We should be thanking them for their gracious contributions to our community, not harassing them!

If you want to see things differently, then raise your own money and make things happen. That is just how society works. And that is how it will continue to work.
