Re: “Fifth Estate to tell Holly Bartlett story

It is interesting, and discouraging, that neither The Fifth Estate nor the Chronicle Herald mentioned Tim or the Coast when reporting the Holly Bartlett story. I say give credit where it's due!

Re: “City's sidewalk shovelling sucks

I agree completely with Andrew; this is a really bad idea and I predict it will result in much more dangerous sidewalk conditions this winter. We all know what happens when you don't clear your walk until the next day. One thing Andrew doesn't mention is property damage. Have a look at this video showing the damage caused by a sidewalk clearing Bobcat:

I hope the city has put some money aside for re-sodding and replacement of walkway paving tiles. Thanks, Andrew, for going public on this one.

Re: “What happened when the city tried, but mostly failed, to widen Herring Cove Road

I don't get it. The heirs lost the property because they did not pay their property taxes, not through any action by the city. If the city had bought the property at the tax sale rather than Marjan, the heirs still would not have received $100K.
