Meet Theresa N. Yzaguirre: Nuisance Tabloid Writer and Property Tax Evader
|Theresa N. Yzaguirre = Minneapolis Mirror = Jordan Hawkman|
Theresa Yzaguirre, known generally as Terry Yzaguirre to everyone else, is an interesting person. She’s a resident and home owner in South Minneapolis, and a blogger. Her blog, the Minneapolis Mirror, is known for its contrary positions on political subjects in the city.
Due to the lop-sided and contrary views Yzaguirre appears to have adopted on pretty much every subject pertaining to NoMi, her blog has become a repository of bad information and a haven for urban blight apologists.
Yzaguirre had the dubious honor of being named the first Jerk Du Jour on this blog. That was due to her tactless and erroneously presented information of volunteers in my neighborhood. She had concluded that the integrity of neighborhood board volunteers was in question because their property values had dropped. The logic of such a conclusion is highly flawed at best, but it had been presented as if it were an undeniable truth.
Sporting a contrary blog is but only one facet of Yzaguirre’s activities. She spends time side-kicking for her friend, Donald W.R. Allen II. He plays reporter and she plays camera-lady. Together, they take pictures and videos of people and post them up on the internet for all to see in an attempt to embarrass and intimidate. Multitudes of these shenanigans can be observed on the Broken Mirror.
Just like her friend, Don Allen, Terry Yzaguirre publishes blog posts littered with a cornucopia of spelling and grammatical errors. And just like her friend, Don Allen, she also writes for the Jordan Hawkman blog. If one were to compare several Jordan Hawkman blog posts to several Mirror posts, the writing style that boasts unartful use of the English language can be observed in unison. Furthermore, I can vouch for this through my own experience on the occasions when I encountered Yzaguirre.
One day, Terry invited herself to the annual meeting for the Jordan neighborhood. She stood there, took pictures, glared at me and my friends, and then left. Like clock-work, the very next day, my picture was on Terry’s Jordan Hawkman blog site; along with statements suggesting some sort of impending doom to my home neighborhood along with derogatory comments about me personally.
Since that time, Yzaguirre has used the Jordan Hawkman blog to publish erroneous and defamatory statements on what seems to be at least a dozen decent and respectable NoMi residents. These residents never deserved to be treated that way, but that never stopped Terry Yzaguirre from spouting off some random conspiracy. The most recent indiscretion from Yzaguirre comes in the form of traditional contrary publishings on her Mirror blog. Twice in the past month, Yzaguirre’s mirror went to bat for notorious slumlord emperor, Steven Meldahl. On the first posting she took a supportive position on absentee landlords, and supported Meldahl on his claims pertaining to his property tax responsibility. The second posting was written by one of Steven Meldahl’s apologist buddies. Essentially it labeled me and the rest of us that are active in holding investment property owners to account, as being members of “the lost generation”, which simply isn’t true; and inferred that we were jealous of Meldahl’s financial success at being a slumlord.
If you are a NoMi resident, you are most likely already aware of Terry Yzaguirre’s exploits. Yet there is something everyone should know about Ms. Yzaguirre. Next time she blogs on Minneapolis Mirror or Jordan Hawkman, and suggests that there’s some sort of nefarious conspiracy in North Minneapolis, or talks about somebody’s financial situation, or makes deprecating comments about somebody’s appearance; keep this in mind…
In 2010, Terry Yzaguirre’s total property tax liability for her house located at 3539 12th Avenue South was $2,334.68. She paid $0 towards that obligation. In 2009 Terry Yzaguirre’s total property tax liability for the same property was $2,503.66. She paid $0 towards that obligation. Those two sums of money when added with assessed penalties for non-payment comes to a grand total of $5,675.15 of past due property taxes. Don’t believe me? No problem, click HERE. This show’s that Yzaguirre has delinquent property taxes from previous years. It doesn’t say how much, but there’s a phone number to call for inquiries. Out of a sense of morbid curiosity, I made the call and asked about the total liability. This is public information; I didn’t have to jump through any hoops to get it. The county employee on the other side of the phone will give any caller the information if asked.
The takeaway here is simple; Terry Yzaguirre’s behavior is that of a rebel without a cause. It makes sense to a degree that she partners with slumlords on the subjects of urban blight and property tax evasion, as she’s partaking in perpetuating those very issues herself.
Just thinking out loud here; perhaps Ms. Yzaguirre could focus her energies on becoming an active neighbor in Powderhorn where she lives? I know it’s a nice neighborhood, but I’m sure it isn’t perfect, and they could use someone that can offer alternative opinions to help prevent group think. That’s an option. Or maybe working towards paying down that property tax debt? I know nobody likes paying taxes, but it is the law, there’s no choice in the matter. It’s either that or lose the house to property tax forfeiture… just say’n. Suffice it to say, Terry Yzaguirre has enough on her domestic plate. Until she takes care of business on the home front, she really should stay out of other people’s issues on the other side of town.
