Jordan Controversies, More Information Sources
In the course of covering the ongoing JACC controversy, I was made aware of something called the "Jordan Livability" blog. This blog...
...doesn't put out enough content, often enough, to develop much of an online following but shows real potential because all the posts are high-quality, exclusive, detailed information about events in the Jordan Neighborhood. Click here for a link to that Jordan Livability blog.
More Info On Past Al Flowers Controversies
Additionally, I've been doing some digging to find out information about Al Flowers, who has thrust himself to a lead role in the Jordan Neighborhood controversies. (Or, shall I say, PUSHED HIS WAY TO THE FRONT, ha ha)
Here's an article from IBBN, click here, that talks about Al Flowers and some very large amounts of money which--the IBBN blog appears to be asserting--can't really be accounted for fully. This other article from the Spokesman-Recorder, click here, has a different take.
Minnesota Daily Coverage Of Flowers Lawsuit Superior To Star Tribune Coverage
It should also be noted the Minnnesota Daily covered the Flowers lawsuit, click here for article, and I'd have to say their article was far and away better than the one in the Star Tribune. (I won't link to Star Tribune articles, as the links are scheduled to go dead)
The Star Tribune mentioned Councilman Don Samuels didn't comment, which is standard when city officials are served a lawsuit. But Minnesota Daily dug deeper, and managed to get commentary from witnesses at the scene. (Of course, Minnesota Daily had a little help from, um...an old Minnesota Daily columnist who was contacted on the phone, ha ha)
