Some Red Avocado updates

Although Iowa City will miss them, the Red Avocado owners are re-prioritizing goals with their young families and may open again. The patrons of Defunct Books will find it at its Sycamore Mall location near Panera's.

The new owners of 511-521 E. Washington St., Jesse Allen and Tom Kaut, generously donated historic wood trim, doors, and hardwood floors to the Salvage Barn. They donated fixtures and carpet to those in need and Habitat for Humanity's Restore outlet. Volunteers and staff worked for this green reuse of materials.

Allen Homes has a reputation as a quality builder that has exceeded city requirements on recent projects. It has already been good neighbors at this stage of work.

College Green neighbors have had concerns about two large building projects near our quiet 1839 Park. We welcome and invite the Allen-Kaut and synagogue projects to fill a different housing niche in Iowa City.

DI may be fueling anti-Occupy violence

A guy I know by the name of Michael Tibbetts just told me how some college frat guys beat him up Thursday for camping at Occupy Iowa City — apparently not the first time this has happened. I wouldn't be surprised if Matt Heinze's opinion column in The Daily Iowan that day ("For real change, abandon Occupy and start over," DI, Feb. 2) contributed to this in some way.

I'd hope in the future that you'd consider the plight of the disadvantaged in this.
