ETC Expansion Great News for OTR
Today's Enquirer alluded to a possible grant from the state, as well as some other available dollars to the theatre for a possible expansion. The article is a little unclear, almost as if the dollars are being made available even before much thought has been put into expansion on the part of Ensemble. But if they do indeed expand (and there is demand for an expanded theatre) it will be great for that area. With the Kroger Garage and condos going in across the street and the Art Academy opening soon around the block, it's great news for that part of OTR. Hopefully an expanded theatre would do a lot to draw traffic and clean up that part of Vine St.
Perfect North Doing Well
I don't wish anyone bad ill, so I congratulate Perfect North on their Successes. However, I have never been to PN, not for tubing, not for boarding. I still hold a grudge against the hill... you see PN was one of the last places in the US to allow snowboarders to partake in the winter fun. Not until 2002-2003 did they allow the first boarders to hit the slopes. It wasn't until their key demographic (listed in the above article as teenage boys), was so overwhelmingly boarders that they couldn't succeed without the snowboard money. Maybe some day I'll get over it and head out, but it's just so inherently wrong. You can't ban me out of disgust for 'my kind', and then ask me to save your business once there's not enough skiers.
