"Museum Reports Higher Than Expected Operating Costs and Lower Attendance. Cuts admission costs" That's news today? That's old news when those of us who exposed this folly when the JS, without doing any research, was all aglow over 240,000 RPM only visitors a year each and every year forever. And agreeing with the Bradley Professors who said the museum would bring in $14 million a year in new business forever. It was the JSEB that bragged that funding was complete when the Endowment was short $12 million or so and when many of the pledges proved to be just that, "pledges" either not paid in money or at all or reduced in value.
To make matters worse, Peoria County, meaning you, own the museum building and the mortgage. Yes, I did try to render the community a service in the 10 years I was elected 7 times out of 7. Now, we will see how the Peoria County property taxpayer fares on "Headington Oaks" and what happens to the old BelWood building the County will still own. Is the Taj Mahal of Medicaid County owned open yet? It was to open June 1.
And did the city collect the $41,000 per month from the developer who was way past due in opening the remodeled Pere??
Interesting but the near bankrupt JS fails to report the real news but turns into the National Inquirer when reporting about some folly of someone they disliked since 1999.
No, I'm not dead yet and at least for the highly religious, I'm not gay.
