'It's going to take a village' to fix Forest Fair
"The mall's owner – New York-based World Properties – may be willing to sell the property and there's an out-of-town entity interested in buying it, according to Forest Park and Fairfield city officials.

I had been 'asked to leave' and they were going to make damn sure I didn’t provoke any more 'security concerns' with my picture taking ever again."
