EDITORIALS FOR SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2003
Attracting companies
Metro Cincinnati this week gets a chance to show off its extraordinary investments in its riverfronts and other regional assets to development professionals from all 50 states and Europe during the annual meeting of the International Economic Development Council (IEDC).

No longer out of sight
It will take billions of dollars and decades to rebuild Hamilton County's 100-year-old sewer system. But as an estimated 10,000 homeowners whose basements flood whenever it rains can attest, we can't wait that long.

SUNDAY'S FORUM COVER

GUEST COLUMNIST - MOLLY DUGAN
Remembering Mike Pangallo
He was, by no means, my best friend. We didn't talk on the phone or hang out on the weekends. Our relationship barely extended beyond a playful punch in the arm, or a joking sneer in the hallway.

GUEST COLUMNIST - JULIE MORRIS
Life as a young environmentalist
Becoming an environmentalist in 2003 is as easy as tossing an empty cola can out the car window. I am one such mass-produced nature lover. I hug trees, but not in public.
