The TRIB’s Eric Heyl, donning his consultant-to-the-mayor hat, is entertaining as always.
Editorial Aside: But this time he’s way off base. The Comet sees no need for holding up the Planning Commission any further, on account of traffic studies. We would, however, strongly urge Don Barden to mitigate the Carnegie Science Center’s legitimate lighting concerns.
