I suppose I should be thankful I at least rate a link. And thanks for allowing me to twist in the wind during the early days before the facts came out. Coward.

I trust there will also be an admission by the commissioners of their complicity.

If Don Linder is hanging out waiting to be funded during reallocation, how can Elm Street Center jump in front of his projects now that the Ole Asheboro deal is dead?

Guilford County was allocated $5.6M in RZED and $9.8M in RZF bonds. We know from YES! Weekly that Elm Street Center submitted $9M of the facility bonds. Where did these outlandish numbers for Pyramids come from? Where did KB get his info?

There will be record bond offerings to compete against. And some of them will be for renovations of existing successful businesses. Others will be for inspired projects like waterparks and even a car dealership. Those bonds are much more attractive than no hit Goldilocks and the Three Bores.

I'd agree if we weren't discussing a finite amount of available funds. It doesn't matter if the Elm Street Center deal gets funded under reallocation. This deal can't stand the light of day. Nobody is stupid enough to buy the bonds.

Spammy, you've positioned yourself into disagreement with the mayor.

It looked to me as if the 12-15-09 deadline was necessary to perform reallocation prior to a stated 4-15-09 deadline. Looking at other states, it appears NC's handling of this thing is draconian.

Spammy, that ship has sailed. Those bonds are theirs. They has presumably paid some of the legal costs toward securing them.

Other states are engaging in this very competitive process. I contend we have played and lost. Nearly all our funds defined by the submitted former deal will be surrendered to reallocation.

Or maybe somebody from another city, forewarned, jumped in and grabbed all of ours.

I looks like Elm Street Center and Urban Hotel Group have to cough up $151K on the front end. And of course, Letters of Credit falls like apples upon the ground. Idiots.
