B-A-N-A-N-A-S - Come on Sing It

I know all the economic developers in Cincinnati are. It's great news, not the least because it didn't cost the city millions like Convergys did, when the company held Cincinnati hostage. I'm impressed by Chiquita leadership that they didn't hold a gun to the head of the city to get them to stay.

They looked at options, including costs of moving, and determined that staying put made good business sense, and focusing on running their business is more important than saving a couple million in taxes. They would have lost a ton of employees if they moved the headquarters 1,500 miles. I am sure that factored in to the decision.

BUt overall, it is fantastic news that Chiquita will remain a Fortune 500 Corporation headquarted in Cincinnati.

Sean Casey - Will Be Missed

Not saying that a trade isn't the right move. Opening up positions and getting some pitching. But for a glimpse of the leadership and character of Sean Casey and how it will be missed, read the story submitted by a reader whose life has been affected by 'the mayor' in a real and personal way.

Banks - Are You Serious

This must be a pratical joke, is it April 1st? Corporex backs out on the deal to be primary developer for the banks, meaning the hijacking of the project by Hamilton County just wasted another 6 months on the project. Somewhere 3CDC and the Port Authority are laughing hysterically. It's really a sad day for the city. I just hope this doesn't mean the end of the project. I hope that 3CDC and the Port Authority swallow egos, and agree to step back in and save the county. This needs to happen, and needs to start turning dirt soon.
