Here is the quote from the developer!

"They're going to have that hole in the center of town a long time."




Well I said that a long time ago when I heard the totally incompetent Carnegie company was handed the contract.

Sounds like sour grapes. They never had the money to do this and figured they City would be desperate and they could strongarm us for more money.

Hers what I would suggest to Carnegie: if you want to be mad at someone, be mad at the guy who promised you he’d get the deal done - Ed Fitzgerald.

Maybe you could even get some of the money you paid him back. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

And a blast from the past. Mike Summers on why they picked Carnegie.

”They asked for very little in terms of public investment, xcept the land for nothing or $1”

And a final thank you to Ms. Conant for the perfect ironic postscript to this very sad chapter in our local history.

Just more proof of the lies our elected officials told us to get this deal through.

Even when it was repeatedly pointed out at every level by many people it was not true.
