Two Americas

Although I don’t live near Allison Ranch Road, I sympathize with the plight of those who may lose their homes and properties for the enrichment of the developers of SouthHill Villages and Northstar. Fair market value cannot reimburse the loss of a beloved home. The conspiracy of wealthy developers and local government to evict citizens from their homes is yet another example of “The Two Americas” – one for the rich and another for everyone else.
