No Show...

Reverend Stenhouse and his attorney didn't show this morning.

Ben Upshaw represented Bethel CDC. Judge Nowak adjourned proceedings 'till next week and reminded Ben that Reverend Stenhouse must show with an attorney as he's a named defendent in the four cases.

I spoke on behalf of the block club and area residents. I asked Judge Nowak to order Bethel CDC to immediately board and secure the property. After looking at the pix I shared with the court and realizing that there's been no progress on the properties since the initial inspection report, he directed the Mayor's Impact Team to board the four properties, cut the grass and issued an "Order to Vacate" for each property.

Will be staying with this story as it unfolds....

Just heard from "exiled" housing activist Dick Kern that 7 News WKBW picked up the story last night - right here.

Does anybody ever show the first 10 times or so? It doesn't seem so and it doesn't seem to matter...
