    what kind of reporting is this? The reason they want to purchase the land is never stated.Were you just filling space on your home page? Why would we care if the land is being purchased if we don’t know why it is being purchased. Looks to me like we are buying riverbed land. What is the land going to be use for? Facts, Please!
