As usual, when you try to sound intelligent, it just comes across as another rant. You have been trying to find something "fishy" about the festival and center, and you haven't been able to. Because there is nothing to find. Your mudslinging hasnt worked, because there is no truth to it. So now you have had to stoop to posting on topix. The festival and center are coming along just fine. Give it up.

I AM NOT KEVIN.
You are one delusional messed up paranoid creep.
By denying the super glaring faults and problems of the GAIF and Cultural Center and continually shifting the subject matter; constantly bringing up your fascinating fixation you have with this Kevin,it's apparent this isn't going to get us anywhere good soon is it?
That's just showing how desperate you are and your demented state - still playing your emotive manipulating mind games - no doubt you feel the need to cling to - your in classic denial and escapism mode - sell it somewhere else - may I suggest inside the walls of a psych unit for starters.
Are you really going to keep pinning the evident problems and current issues of the GAIF and Cultural Center on someone who resigned over 16 months ago? It's more than obvious they didn't occur under his watch.
You need to check in with reality - stop denying the problems - and start identifying the problems - that's the first step to moving forward. We can't improve anything if you and your propagators keep generating more falsehoods - and continually abuse your self generated platforms and forums to do so. Or possibly that is your direct intent and solution after all? Since you pronounced to everyone that it's better to not to show your hand to reveal underhanded antics, I guess we'll have to leave it up to the passing of time to reveal what you have in mind for the GAIF and cultural center after all.
Yo straight up - I am not Matt
Let me repeat that
I AM NOT Matt.
The only delusional messed up paranoid creep here is you. LOL!!!
People who act like they know everything and who give such great advice to others, are always the ones that know nothing, who see paranoia everywhere and who need help the most. Now run along, check yourself into that mental ward and get that help that you so badly need. Sorry that your 21 days won't be over before the festival and you'll miss it.

Want to use your credit card to obtain tickets? Then go to GAIF web site. It's the only way you pay for them. Don't be a dummy and listen to the crap that this jackass is trying to peddle.

Article Title: "Utica cultural center could use some Irish luck"
Search; print achives. You can find the article there and several others on the Cultural Center.

http://nl.newsbank.com/nl-search/we/Archives... +

De Law - If Cultural Center reverts back to the City of Utica due to stipulation in deed (December of this year). Who will be paying for the corrections to fix the "structural problems"? Utica taxpayers? What would become of the center?

That is the only place you can use credit cards this year, BEFORE the festival for online tickets! Not at the fairgrounds for admission, beer or festival merchandise. That is all cash only!!

Decision was made to replace the credit card lines, which cost alot to run and also cost a fee for each transaction, for several ATMs. The ATMs will have no cost and will pay them back an small amount for each transaction. ATMs will be located at each station where you would want to make a purchase. This was a wise fiscal decision. Committee decided to replace an expense with revenue. Great move.

If you don't like the ATMS, then come prepared and bring $$$$.

For the record, no one believed for a minute that the moron who hasn't been to the event in 9 years but who has been on topixs badmouthing it, was going to actually attend this year.

My husband and I go to this shindig every year and each year the beer chips are different color. I always try to figure out what color they will be each year. I'm going to the dollar store and buying myself red, green, and silver coins. Hell! Maybe I'll get lucky!

Really? Or look at it like rest of the world an wonder why it took them hundreds of years to do what our forefathers did in eight or twelve. Oh and are we also going to celebrate that charming Irish resistance tool they placed in the world collective the "kneecapping"?

Oh wait what about dead British kids at funerals that were attacked? That was their fault right?

ok i know matt alittle but dont really know much about the irish festival but was there two years ago. I guess my question is all the post that i have seen on topix there has never really been a good answer on the cultural center. I do recall reading something in paper a long time ago that it was being build...so really what is the deal I am not sure if I would ever go but is it being worked on and if not why?
