Re: “To Restart Construction, Burlington Amends CityPlace Agreement

From April 2017…

"The deal with Rouse is expected to close within the coming weeks, Sinex said, after nearly six months of negotiations. As co-owners, Devonwood Investors and Rouse will combine to finance 30 to 40 percent of the project, Sinex said. A construction lender will finance the remaining 60 to 70 percent of the project a "pretty typical" arrangement for this kind of development, he said. The project is estimated to cost somewhere between $225 and $230 million.

"Sinex has narrowed the field to two possible lenders and expects to announce that deal within the next month. "I'm highly confident," he said."

Re: “All Eyes on Eva [SIV522]

I had the surgery done in 2008 on both eyes, a week apart. When the bandages came off for the first eye the day after, I cried -- I saw textures and detail that I'd not seen in years. I tell everyone not to put it off. I'm still seeing better ten years after. I did need a procedure to remove cloudiness later, but it was a simple laser procedure.

Re: “Media Note: Top Free Press Editor Sparks Outrage on Twitter

Just some questions -- was the tweet accompanied by multiple requests to subscribe? Did it have multiple annoying popups, with obscured controls to dismiss? It does look like he checked it for spelling and grammar errors -- unlike many articles in the Free Press.

Re: “Seven Takeaways From VPR's Gubernatorial Debate

I'd like a real alternative to Shumlin. I don't think he's been, overall, outstanding as a governor of this state. Health care is a mess. Property taxes and educational funding taken together are a mess. Children and Family Services is a mess. I'd love a real alternative but there isn't one I can support. Milne acts like he hadn't given any thought to the issues facing Vermont, almost like he's making up answers on the spot.
