Bob Ivers is now a twice-convict to go with his twice-loser. Stalker, now threatening to kill federal judges. A “nice people”.

Re: New developments seem to have terrible balconies

What’s the term, “Juliet balconies”? I love full balconies but I don’t mind these if it can make a unit be less expensive then it has a place imo.

Re: Three Rivers Park District and other Met Council partner park agencies
