I'll believe it when I see it. They ought to take it out of the jerk city councilors who voted for this shady deal. Everyone knew this was a sham from the start. I council would have listened to the citizens, this crap never would have happened.

How about hard liquor? "CITY POINT BRANCH WATER" 100 proof,$5.00 a gallon. Hell, Hopewell could make a fortune.

Looks like this British firm is going to take it apart and move it to England(I hope). C.L-B. will have a cow, and we need the land back to put to GOOD use.

You need the land back? Laughs. How do you propose to pay for it? If the deal encompasses just giving Hopewell the land in lieu of monetary compensation, I'll rollover and croak. For Osage is God.

What a doofus fool you are, Slurping Sumshit. I don't need it personally, but the public in general needs it back on the market instead of sitting there holding up a closed down boondoggle plant from a fly-by-night outfit. Are you trying to be funny,or are you just plain stupid?
