Museum Funding

County Board members are to receive an update this week.

Private funding for the Caterpillar highly blessed and promoted museum should now be no problem. Cat stock is up $3 today to $51 and change. Jim Owens owns 363,000 shares.

Hope that is what we hear this week that all goals have been meet with only 33 per cent coming from the taxpayers.

Of course we know that is never going to be true. The sales tax pledged to the project is more that half the $78 million project.
