    HHS is not on 11th and Adams, it is between 8th and 9th on Clinton Street.

      @debra – I meant the high school field. Regardless, this was apparently the second time this happened, and the tenant was actually evicted and not really authorized to be there. He’s going to have to deal with some stuff now that’s for sure.

        @411 I thought so when I viewed the picture, but like you stated that was besides the point. Sorry to hear this and Im glad no one was hurt. He should be held accountable and pay for whatever damage.[quote comment=”218928″]@debra – I meant the high school field.
