    I want to set the record straight on my quote in this article. The reporter, Ray Collins, came to my office to interview me and our discussion pertained to the state of the real estate market. When he asked me to comment on the issue of the closure of the golf course, I replied that I knew nothing about it, having been out of town the previous week. I also suggested that I was not a good source on such a topic and suggested others he might interview. For him to take a quote about the status of the real estate market and insert it in a story unrelated to my quote is deplorable and verges on being unethical, in my opinion. [sad]

    It is a shame when public parks and spaces are turned in to private company profits. I see the same thing happening all ove the US. Look at the public airport in Chicago. The mayor came in destroyed it and gave it to a corporation to develop for free for 20 years. I feel bad for all the people who wanted to live by a nice golf course that anyone could play at.

    We fought this in the courts and were told about 4 years ago that the people who were given the rights to run the course had a 20 year contract! What happened to that?!

    Also a new home was just built on N Leewynn Dr, I wonder if these home builder were told what was happening to the course? I'd be upset if I was them!
