I'm just curious as to why you sent all the information on last weeks city paper article to point out all Dean's misgivings to a lady in Paris to write, but yet you weren't afraid to attempt to put Darden into a bad light ?
Stephen, Did you not provide Liz with the information for her story ?
Why didn't she write this one too ?
Or I guess the bigger question....why didn't you write last weeks ?
And which of the 2 has gotten more exposure and positive reviews.
I'm part of the grassroots movement and I'm extremely disappointed in the way Stephen George chose to portray someone I consider a close friend.
I know the facts, I know the numbers, and I've personally seen first hand the efforts by many of those that are part of our group. What I've witnessed first hand with my very own eyes and ears is not what is told in the above article and that's a shame.
Those on the other side of the issue can spin the media anyway that they wish. I think it's indisputable that Dean and his administration has already been caught in more lies, deception, corruption and lack of ethics than any in history.
And that's just the parts we've found so far and have actually been reported !
There is one thing I have learned in this fight over the fairgrounds. If the side fighting to close the Fairgrounds makes a statement, turn that 180 degrees around if you want the truth. I could give at least 20 examples of this that can't be refuted.
That's what should be reported.
I'm still waiting after reading this article.
What a brilliant statement of cluelessness....
So a State Fair (and every other event there) Have existed for 106 years and never once used taxpayer funds.....and the site is Ill-Suited for those events ?
Name one single office or warehouse that has existed in Nashville that has lasted 106 years.
What kind of logic is that ?
I'd like to thank the Nashville Scene as well as the Nashville City Paper for it's coverage of this issue. If this one issue has done anything it's proven how much control and bias the Mayors office has over the media in Nashville.....
Except those named above and for that Nashville should be thankful.
Great job by all involved
How many visitors to Nashville, and especially the State Fair attract if you moved the Metro Historical Archives to a "Curb" Built building that housed the archives, the recently displaced by the New MCC, Musician's Hall of Fame....and the ever deserving Fairgrounds Speedway Hall of Fame ?
We'll get Sterlin to work the front door once a... week....Now how many jobs would something like this create ?
The site already creates $50 million in economic impact, and that's with a determined fair board, fairgrounds manager, director of finance, Chamber of commerce, all working like Army Generals Marching off a cliff to KILL the dang place !
If that kind of gusto was put towards investing in it, and realizing the true potential I think you would find it could bring in over $ 100 million in economic impact to the city, for almost a BILLION dollars less than what's being spent downtown.
Would that not also aide in the upswing of the neighborhood ?
Those neighbors who don't have high paying jobs like those opposed to the fairgrounds would be able to work within walking distance of their homes. These people love the property and would make wonderful fairgrounds representatives.
