Rira commented on Joseph Porcelli (Chief Neighbor)'s blog post How can we move past conflict back to each other?
"I think the leadership of JP needs to take a stand far more often!  Our elected leaders have been deafeningly silent on their obligations to build bridges across all groups.  They have allowed a small group of angry mob like college kids…"

"Lisa, Joe did a wonderful job getting N4N going! If you and Joe could bring some "hyper" neighborly themes to JP right now after all the acrimony we have experienced in the wake of the Whole Foods fiasco, JP could use the breath of fresh…"

Rira replied to Rick Stockwood's discussion JP for All declines JPNC Whole Foods Ad Hoc Invitation
"Rick,   You have replied in a well reasoned, professional and articulate way.   The only thing I could add is that I think the JPNC is now so illegitimate that they are venturing into a legal gray area that I feel will potentially pull the…"

Rira commented on Dave Demerjian's blog post Second Whole Foods Community Forum
"I posted this on the JPNC site - but they might not "approve " it - as you can see it is critical of them - so if they do not approve it - it is here:   I fully support the whole foods coming to JP and feel the JPNC unfairly…"

Rira commented on Robbie Samuels's blog post Where will the Latino and Caribbean JP residents who counted on Hi-Lo as an institution for 47 years get the items they need that can't be easily found in Boston?
"youth, everyone - THIS is the golden opportunity to create something  - hi lo is gone , the doors are closed - they're retiring and  have moved on - but 100's of people could come together and open their own market, create…"

"On the other hand, if Hi Lo wanted to retire after 50 years - why not?  Why do people object so much to the hi lo closing.  They spent 50 years in business, they must be in the 90's - how much longer can someone work?  They…"

"It would have been great to have this letter available for last week's meeting.  I think Whole Foods will be a pleasant surprise for many people.  I attended the meeting last week and was not sure why whole foods is the bad guy or for…"

Rira commented on Breton Hornblower's blog post Whole Foods Letter to JP
"People lamented the loss of culture - the new market, could offer prepared foods and have a mini food court with seating that would create a gathering place, village like cultural venue - win win win win all around - so many opportunities, just…"

Rira commented on Breton Hornblower's blog post Whole Foods Letter to JP
"  I never saw "hi lo" givieng back 5 pennies to the Hyde Square community.  Did they?  If they did, I'd love to hear about it.   On the other hand, if Hi Lo wanted to retire after 50 years - why not?  Why do…"

Rira commented on Joseph Porcelli (Chief Neighbor)'s blog post What impacts should be considered and what should the community process look like if Whole Foods is really planning to move into JP?
"The answer for anyone or any organized group/partnership is simple.  If you want to see something done your way, approach the owners of hi-lo and buy the property.  Then,  do whatever you like with it.    "
