Courthouse Square Troubles

 

continued

Several residents called to defend their building. "I've just started my thirteenth year here, and I have to regard the article as a hatchet job," said John Syler. "I'm in a wheelchair, and I'm not the least afraid. Yeah, we've got drunks in here, you've got drunks anywhere....We've got quite a cast of characters, like a mini-UN or the second sailing of the Titanic. People are, by and large, good folks."

"The article was so negative, the good things here didn't get any attention," agreed Chuck Swanagon. Swanagon, a guitar teacher at the Herb David studio, organizes regular jam nights in the building's ballroom. "Every six, seven weeks, we throw a big party for the residents," he says. "The musicians all have a good time, the people all have a good time."
