CN article: "could draw upwards of 50,000 visitors annually within only a few years in operation".

Link listed above: "Harrison said...estimating on the low end that it would draw 50,000 tourists between the second and third year".

And so it begins....

Where are these estimates coming from? He needs to show some concrete data. From a reputable source. Not him and his crooked math. That 50,000 is probably how much new tax money he thinks he can steal annually and line his pockets with if he can get this passed. That golf course has yet to meet the bogus numbers he listed when he lied to everyone to get it built and he hasn't ever made a dime for the area at the base. This is yet another con from him. I'm sure there will be millions in rehab construction work needed to prepare so he'll have plenty of good contracts to hand out for kickbacks as well. His forte`!

they are going to tour the aluminium carcass's of isis owned airlines as ART is nothing but a Aluminum scrap yard! Then, they are going to take a stroll through the YMCA of days gone past to show where the equipment once stood as it all was taken to memphis. after that they get to watch lonesome rhoads on the old theater big screen all before touring the crack baby mceoc daycare's only to be wrapped up by a stroll through the depends section of the dilapidated village, a air boat ride through arkansas lake, right past the ball fields only to walk 3 holes of Thunder Bayou.

its a day trip called "The barry-cliff tour of failure"

Another damn joke on Blytheville. Do you honestly believe that 50,000 people would stop in that s*** hole town? There are probably hundreds of thousands that would avoid it. Look around! Who's the crook here? All these supposedly leaders come up with these lamebrain schemes to bring money to Blytheville so they can stick their hands in it. Wasn't very Harrison mayor? Think about it.
