Quotes

"Yes. Historic buildings are part of our history and we must work to preserve their significance. Second, a bipartisan group of legislators believes the tear-down was done in a deceptive manner. That issue must be cleared up. Third, Phoenix has gone to great lengths to work with privately held property owners to preserve their historic nature. Phoenix should always work with private individuals rather than use the heavy hand of government to take their rights away. Interestingly, government is quick to impose rules on the private sector but quickly chooses to ignore those same rules for themselves."
Mary Niall Mitchell is Ethel & Herman L Midlo Chair in New Orleans Studies at the University of New Orleans and author of "Raising Freedom’s Child: Black Children and Visions of the Future After Slavery" (NYU, 2008)...
"It's like a bunch of small boys throwing hats, pants, shirts and shoes into a pile, then sorting them out" said Fred Austin, director of the local district which included St. Clair, Monroe and Madison counties. The headquarters was in East St. Louis
"I hate to editorialize in a meeting, but all the comments I have had have been positive about Okeena Pool," said Williams. "It's a historic treasure. In talking to various people, the idea came about that maybe a private citizens group could be some sort of support. A 'Friends of Okeena PoolPool group). I also mentioned it to Danny Walden of the Historical Society. There are very few WPA (Works Progress Administration) pools left.""
