Al Diamon researched a decade of quotes from the Gannetts and their employees regarding the possibility of selling their business. With related articles about articles about the upgrading Baxter Boulevard; the continued conflict between Zootz nightclub and the elderly residents of 10 Congress Square over noise; and Portland superintendent of schools Mary Jane McCalmon's decision to restore the swimming programs to the Reiche and Riverton schools in her new budget proposal.
