Comment on After botched interview, Mr. Yen’s closes door on comeback by Tony Iaguessa

I think you were being more than fair to them, we Springfieldians really appreciate you trying to get the "other side" of the story for us. It was very disappointing seeing all the repeat violations. They certainly breached our trust, then even more so by NOT granting you the interview. We certainly hate to see any business close, but most of all we hate seeing iconic businesses like theirs close for reasons that could had been avoided. Now you see why companies hire PR managers.

I hope someone will find a good use for the building, so it's not just another empty space. (We have plenty of those.) The view of Medical Mile from this spot is terrific!

Comment on It’s a no-go for Trader Joe’s by Mark Sponsler (@marksponsler)

While Trader Joe's would have been great, we have two stores owned by his brother... ALDI's. Now, COSTCO is something I can get behind. Where's the petition?

Comment on Too much of a good thing: Pumpkin spice overload by M. Hoover

Fri, 18 Oct 2013 17:20:50 +0000

No such thing as too much pumpkin spice -- though I might draw the line at potato chips. I am on the hunt for pumpkin spice instant oatmeal, but I suppose I could just have some pumpkin spice ice cream for breakfast. Take heart, though: If pumpkin-spice season is upon us, then the season of peppermint cannot be far behind.

This is so true. Sometimes I think the hardest thing about writing is deciding which angle to take and what details to leave out. On the flip side, the best thing about reporting is experiencing the whole story. Great piece!

Comment on Hope in Haiti, Day 1: 69,000 hungry kids and counting by Stacey Wilkerson

Hi Eric, I am so happy to hear about this opportunity to help the kids in Haiti. I couldn’t imagine the experience to see firsthand how Convoy of Hope and all the people pull together to help children in need. Safe travels and we look forward to your return home.

Comment on The ad Justice never pitched by J Howard Fisk

Woody was a unique character and I say, "character", because he was that. Most of us will be lost to public memory ten years after our passing, but not Woody. His personality was a little bit local and a little bit New York Diamond District. He made it easy to smile and easy to relax and enjoy a conversation. The twinkle in his eye let you know that he was just a bit of a scamp. I have great affection for Woody and the memories of many visits to his office. He wanted to be my friend and he was. What a guy!

Comment on What others are saying about Hammons by Dr.Paul Collins

Tue, 04 Jun 2013 20:27:17 +0000

I met Mr. Hammons on two occasions in the restaurant in the University Plaza. The last time I talked with him, he gently stated that there would be a baseball stadium and that the St,. Louis Cardinals would play in Springfield. I really liked John Q.Hammons,
