UPDATE: Opponents worry developments will harm city’s culture

EDITOR'S NOTE: In reference to the “irresponsibility” of the Examiner not posting the whole story and adding our own “tilt” to a story to “look one way,” know most assuredly that is not the case — ever.

The newspaper had no intent whatsoever of taking any position.
