I will offer $14.5 mill, contingent of course on obtaining suitable financing and passing a home inspection. Will she take a personal check?

Keep in mind she is on the OSU board and is one of those always making a decision to raise tuition and fees. Someone living in a 57000 square foot house is not a county girl at heart.
okay

She hasn't been on the OSU board for years. Is this the first time you've read the news in some time?

Good point. Wretched excess is never good PR for a company, even if she did earn it.

As she looked over the pond as the sun rose Bernie K stumbled to up to her and said "Hey babe, could you pick up a couple fifth's of Jack when you go into town and give yer BernieBear a hug." Luckily she was able to avoid his projectile hurl but unfortunately for BernieB, his flip flops were ruined.

This story is an indication of the wretched excess and greed that exists nationwide, creating the deep divide between the "haves and have-nots." In part, Longaberger was able to afford a home of this size due to the extremely low tax rate of wealthy corporations and individuals.

She lives there by herself? what happened to all the husbands? She must be a pill to deal with. An overinflated pill that benefited from what her dad did and now brought the company down to nothing. How is her "child factory" sister doing?
I remember that when she was building this palace she was laying people off...literally at the same time.

She has money, let her spend it how she chooses. Who cares? She'll be lucky to sell it for $10 mil in this economy, not that that is "chump change" to anyone posting on here.

That business was built in a good economy, selling a WAY over-priced product that was not a necessity for anyone. Now that the economy has gone down the crapper, people are no longer buying them in any volume near what they were - the disposable income is simply not there for most.

Few businesses last "forever" and whether her dad was still running it or not, the layoffs would have come eventually and the business would have receded. And to the guy who called her sister a "baby factory" - ahain, who cares? They can at least afford to take care of their own, without tapping the taxpayers for assistance. Is that wrong?

The jealousy and envy present in most of these posts is incredible. These are the same people who are moaning that Tiger is building a beautiful $55 mil home in Florida. If he has the money - WHO CARES?

I think the old broad is running out of money. No one these days is going to spend $120 plus for a basket which is made from $3 worth of oak shavings. The party is over. Not sure why she did not want any of her children to inherit the home? The bigger issue is who would spend $15M on a home in a state where the sun only shines four months out of the year?
