Subject: Obituary Revision for Timothy Reidy
Comments: I know Timothy's daughters are under distress since his passing and did not mean to completely disregard the fact that Tim also left behind a 5 year son, Joseph, who dearly misses his Papa. Would love to know what I could do to help right this. Thank you.

Subject: Builder Violations
Comments: I have to comment on the article about Shawn Kaleta. Without defending or agreeing with actions taken I must say that the house in question has been the same for over 50 years. It is not "disguised " as a garage. Kaleta hasn't changed the structure. There has always been an inside stairway to the ground floor. Unless you call having an aquarium as constituting a living area, the use has not changed. I am glad that the apartment has not been torn down and replaced with a high rise house. The old deck was in disrepair. The DEP doesn't need to be involved. An owner replacing a rotten deck should not be their concern.

Comments: Agreed Papa Dan.... I have read enough over the last 8 months someone had to speak out. I tried on the Islander but it seamed every time I defended the city employees .... they didn't post it.... Funny how that works.
