Three Short Answers to Three Baseless Rumors

Rumors abound in our fair city, so I figured I should take a moment to knock down a trio of the most egregiously silly ones:

Q. Is Coiner Park going to be converted into a housing development?

A. No.  It’s a park, and there are no plans to change that.

Q. Did the city block an attempt by McMenamins’ to purchase the Armory?

A. No.  McMenamins’ never made any attempt to purchase the Armory.

Q. Is the City going to destroy the Opal Whiteley mural?

A. No.  It’s on private property, so even if the City wanted to, they couldn’t.

Heard any other rumors (plausible or otherwise)?  Ask about them in the comments!
