Grossman tribute

Developer Gary Grossman must be a bit embarrassed after reading the “Greet Gary Grossman” story on the front page of the Aug. 10 edition of The Tribune.

The last time I remember so much praise being heaped on a developer was when Kelly Gearhart was named Citizen of the Year in Atascadero.

The story literally gushes about his being a “fixer” with a “history of careful management,” a man who loves the downtown and Farmers Market and is a philanthropist to boot. Rather than a news account, The Tribune’s story reads more like a tribute — or a not-so-subtle marketing of Grossman’s San Luis Ranch development project.
