    The Romney's 15 minutes of fame expired 5 minutes ago. Please no more stories of these folks. It is not news.

    There are a lot of things happening around the world that should be reported that is not. The economy is a serious issue, start reporting on the waste, fraud, and abuse in public sector. Bring it to light and maybe the people will start demanding some results from their elected representatives.

    Nero fiddled while Rome burned, and the US is going to collapse while everyone is distracted watching reality TV.

    This newspaper is lds owned. The romneys are lds.
    So what's wrong with supporting this?

    Somehow, I knew it would be about their palatial estate.

    What do they not want a home which they rarely use (or need?) to be assessed and *taxed* appropriately?

    This article demonstrates how the Romney's do not see themselves as "Entitled" and how Ann basically took the position as an ordinary citizen at a local meeting. Most other celebs, and make no mistake, the Romney's are celebs would call a press conference and call out the local govt official. What a nice change up from the norm.

    Ann Romney can't get her car elevator fast enough? At a time when we're supposedly the wealthiest nation on earth, and yet our middle class is only the 27th wealthiest?

    I have absolutely no sympathy.

    Actually this a news story about a family with all the political influence in the world who goes before the City Council like anyone else. I think that's news is today's world. Good on ya' Ann!

    I live in Idaho, and DEPEND on Deseret News to help me keep track of what the California Romneys are doing these days!!

    To Furry about non-local news: there are more members of the church outside of Utah than inside, and outside the US than inside. Further, it has been this way for years. It is about time that residents of SLC realize that they are not the center of the Church's universe.

    @ MrTuscadero, this story has nothing, zip, zero, nada, rien, to do with Obama. Stop trying to drag Obama into everything. It's kind of like those annoying comments on stories that are exclusive to either BYU or the U of U which are unrelated potshots about the other school.

    I also don't think this story is newsworthy. On the other hand, it has generated several comments so maybe it is. On thing for sure, it is difficult to believe those who claim they do not care when they obviously care enough to both read it and comment on it. That would include me. I don't care about this story either :)

    This is news?

    Has the DN become another National Enquirer?

    It is good to see that she exercised her right to speak at the council meeting. It's just one of the things that makes living in a secular democratic republic so great.

    I think this was newsworthy, because it brings home to me that absolutely nobody knows what accoutrements are in Obama's new Hawaiian house, even though he bought it during the election itself. I don't fault the writer of this story, but the entire journalism profession for the blinders it always seems to be wearing.

    The Romney's are the epitome of out of touch rich people. How many homes do these people need? They are filthy rich rub your face in it rich!

    News worthy? Depends on your viewpoint. However, no one forced anyone to read the story. If you don't like the Romneys, it's not difficult to read the headline and decline to read the rest of the story.

    I wish disdain could be turned into gold through alchemy. A man could retire a billionaire after reading the effort of some commenters to Deseret News stories.

    Not Utah news, so why in the Utah section? And she appeared Tuesday, and this is Friday. I saw this story last Wednesday. So is the DesNews still the cheerleader for the Romney? Isn't it time to move on?

    I thought Mitt was from Massachusetts. Or was that Michigan? Or maybe New Hampshire? Or Utah?

    deseret pete,

    We read it because the DesNews deemed it so important they made it the lead article on their web site. That doesn't mean we actually give a wet ball of lint or agree as to its importance.

    Newsworthy stories attract attention, and inspire comments, as this one has done.

    Yet again, the DN positions itself as the Romney News.

    I wasn't going to comment on the story except to disagree with some of the commenters. This is a newsworthy story. Is it hard news? no it isn't, but is all one understands of a society is that which would be hard news one is missing a major piece of understanding.

    If you don't care about this story why are you reading it and commenting about it ?

    Sometimes real special people come across rather intimidating?
    She probably gave it her all.

    As one who lived in San Diego for 30 years and had to deal with County regulations and hassles, I can say Anne wasted her time. Nice try, but nothing will speed up the review period. San Diego is one of the toughest cities to get permits.

  • Furry1993 Ogden, UT

    News in San Diego? Maybe. News in Utah? No. Why is this non-Utah-news being covered in the DesNews?

    Is this what this news source had become? A Romney tracker for a guy who had tried twice and failed for President? This is not a news story.
