Can anyone explain to me why the McKenzie industrial board owns the old theater property but yet still pays rent to Ed Perkins to use the current facility they are in? I do not understand this. I do understand that the old theater needs alot of work but if it is true as the mayor says and business owners come downtown to see it and determine if they open a business here or not, would it not be better to have the industrial board which is pretty much a recruiting center for business in the heart of the town. It is a waste of money to continue to pay rent when you already own another property that can be fixed and everyone would be proud of. Take the money you spend on rent for a year or even two and invest it into the building you already own and from that point on it does not cost you anything other than utilities and upkeep as with any other building, because the building is non taxed. The same leadership that is wasting the industrial board budget is the SAME leadership we have on our city council. How do you think they manage the city budget.

Your right! I want to know also why in the hell is that old theater just setting there empty with sife all over it why can't we h ave theater like we use to have? Why can't we have a skating rink or a bowling alley? This sorry ass tolwn has nothing for the youth at all! Making the town beautiful isn't going to help shit because ppl that might want to come to this town and start a buisness won't because if they have children and they say there is nothing for them here. Look who is running the industrial board a drunk and a crook that only want to fatten their pockets. They probably got a scam going on together that's why they keep doing stupid junk lke that. The town oh hell the whole country needs to be opn t he Dave Ramsy program. I been in t his town my whole life and i m ashamed of how its being run anymore. I don't know how many plant managers there have been in the factories we did have that lived in other towns because there is nothing here to do. I mean wth?
wow

The deal is stupid decisions like these and many others that these boards make are a waste of money, the fact is that we need people out there who will question our "leaders" or maybe you would prefer a socialist society where the people have no say and believe everything the governing body tells you. Its all about checks and ballances my friend.

Dude, I couldnt be further from a socialist. Its your right to disagree with a governing body but do something positive about it. Yes this city needs alot of improvements. Since you know so much about everything that goes on and you dont agree with any of it why didnt you run for Mayor? What are you doing to improve the situatuions you dont like other that cryin about it on a trashy web site behind a false identity?
ah hell naw

You know maybe the mayors position is something I should run for. Sounds like you should run for council too. Maybe then some progress could be made

I am a long time mckenzie resident..I dont always like everything that goes on here, but getting on here cryin about it wont help. THere is one thing Mckenzie people do more than gossip and that is complain. Every town/city has its problems. Get over it.

No one is crying about anything on here wow. Did u tell your kids to quit crying when they started asking you questions as they were growing up? With that attitude I imagine you did. We are simply discussing on here what we think is going on in the city and how we can improve on things. Just so it is known I don't know what they are doing it for but there is a large role off dumpster behind the theater that they are throwing trash into. I know SIFE is no longer using the building. I don't know if the industrial board is cleaning it up with pans to sell it or what but something is happening. But seriously wow you need to be a little more open to other peoples ideas or people wont like to play with you very much.

Though I hope that the movie theater is in the process of being re-opened, I doubt that is the case. Being that it has been closed for 13-14 years, I can't bring myself to seriously believe it will ever re-open. I don't know what's being done to the theater, but I bet that whatever is being done to it will not benefit the citizens like re-opening the theater would, such as if it becomes something else for Bethel use again or a city government office. It would be great if I'm wrong about it.
