Workers with A/K Grading and Demolition begin the painstaking work of taking down the bricks that make up the third floor of the historic Paramount Theater, which was destroyed by fire in 2005. City officials say the facade needs to come down because of potential danger to passersby, while some downtown development officials worry that by taking it down, the city will lose valuable grant funding.
