ROOT: Now it is getting serious

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — The first step is to stop the person or persons that are enticing the birds. After that, I have no idea. I am not a politician, but I was the one that was warning everyone that tearing down the mall was a really bad idea. But not even I, a person who has almost no faith in human nature, could foresee such a selfish and dangerous act.

The ball is in your court, town of Lockport. The super center owners will pull out of the deal. They will have no choice after a while. Then what? You tore down our mall and left us with a huge mess. Fix it. This time, fix it right.
