... They are preying on the emotions of civilians by adding support to the wounded warriors association.
They think you guys will buy more tickets.

I think I'll take the 45 dollars and just give all of it to a wounded vet. That way they'll get it all instead of a pittance.

How sad...

Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Do the 1000 people who already bought tickets get their money back?
So then

It is nice that so many people want to help our city by supporting the event. NOT!!!!! Your a grown up, you bought the ticket, no one twisted your arm. If your pissed about paying a higher price then truly your heart doesn't lie in helping our town. Selfish I would say.
Wow

I purchased the tickets now didn't I and I even live in Clinton County, so yes I want to help.

Obviously I must not have the kind of money you have. Our family could have saved 72 dollars if we would have waited. That means 1000 ticketholders could have saved a total of 18k.

Also, I didn't think it was about helping the "city". I thought it was about the county as a whole.
Wow

Also, if you think it should be helping the city, then maybe it should be held in the city somewhere.

Can't begin to see the logic in your comments, but what should I expect on topix eh?

You just proved my point. I hope our people have learned their lesson. What ever someone tries to do to help you will be drugged thru the dirt. What was a effort to bring something positive to our community is being rammed down their throat. I WOULD RATHER TRIED AND FAILED THAN NEVER HAVE TRIED. If this town was to listen to all the bitchers then nothing would get done. Its never going to change, so lets here some more!!!!!!!

How is that? I purchased tickets,wanting to support the county. Then they added the Wounded Warriors to the mix as well.

They dropped the cost a substantial amount, and you expect people not to be upset? Seriously???

Tried and failed is one thing, but trying and failing with what amounts to tens of thousands of dollars is a completely different animal.

What's with "the town was to listen to..." crap? I thought you were discussing a county funded event? Am I wrong?

Is it wrong to want to bring the "county funded event" into Frankfort to showcase the city rather than 8 miles out if that would strengthen your arguement?

Again, you are missing the point with your non-logical thoughts.

So you call me an expletive? Just because you disagree with my comments? Why is that? I thought places like this were created so people could openly discuss local "goings on". Guess I was wrong, didn't meet your standards, and as a result, get called a name.

I don't disagree with what was proposed, I disagree with how the money has been appropriated. I disagree with the reduction of ticket costs. I disagree with no public consultation on where it should be. This is Clinton County taxpayers money. I would guess at least 60k's worth.

This should have been done by professionals who put these productions on for a living. Sure they take a percentage of the revenues, but ultimately one could see the long-term benefits of their services.

This is just the beginning of what will fail.. Wait until the County/City pay 1.8 million dollars for this Ivy Tech coming to town. This will fail as well but hey, are Mayor can say he brought this great investment to our community. Its all smoking mirrors in this administration, in the paper, on WILO and Facebook preaching what they have done but I still don't have a clue as to what they have done....
Has anyone given thought

to the fact that the PR person dreamed up this whole Alive thing and it was dropped on someone local to do?

Then if it doesn't go so well, the mayor won't be on the hook, and if it does then he'll take the kudos.

Hmmmm...

Where did you get the 1.8 million dollar figure from?

Why do you believe Ivy Tech will fail?

I'm sorry that you hate progress so much.

$40 per ticket is a lot for me to spend as well, but that is a very fair price for this kind of concert. Many people spend $100 plus per ticket to go to a concert, not to mention paying to travel there and for parking. At least this is in our own backyard, and we can support our community with the money spent. In any case, the event will be paid for by the ticket sales, tax dollars. Sara Evans is a huge name in country, it is amazing that they got her to come here. I say support our community doing positive things and stop the naysaying!!!

Sara Evans did not come here because she had nothing else to do. Ask the Chamber how much was paid to Ms. Evans for her appearance.

The cost of the concert ticket is to cover the appearance fee for Evans & Gloriana.

The number of full price tickets ($47) that needed to be sold to cover the appearance fee is around 1475 tickets.
