Maybe it will be sold - - -

- - maybe NNNnnoT !

February is four (4) days away, and just thirty-two days before the end of that month.

I suspect things are really HEATING UP, and 'negotiations' are proceeding at full throttle.

"Throttle" in the other sense:

to supress, choke, or strangle ..

The Headline Proclaims:

Maybe the Power Plant Will Be Sold in February.

Anyone willing to take bets?

The city council should run a pool-lottery-game, with the city manager AND the press editor in charge of keeping track of bets, and making public service announcements about the event to sway people to part with their easy money.

This would be something similar, but much large in scope and prize money, than the famous “you name the date and time the truck sinks into the lake” deal.

Another idea, the jaycee’s could run a classic out-house race around the pickup truck about expected time of the sinking.

This would move these two staid events into the realm of real drama.

Of course, the city could add music and vittles to the event - an appropriate acoustick band could play “nearer mine gott to thee” as the outhouse and truck began sinking, to revive sentimentality and nostalgia for all.

Such a lottery would be the highlight of the new year after the pasty drop and the fireworks.

Delta Chamber of Commerce ladies could be in charge of procurement, bets and bettors’ money.

Local county businesses could run special sales, and giveaways, offer all expense paid trips to unknown places in the U.P.

Maybe Marc Tall and the rest should realize nobody else is trying to buy the power plant so EGE is the city's only option.Or they could be stuck paying for the last 2 years legal bills and the 2 million to tear their plant down. Maybe he wants it torn down to build a mayors mansion with the money they already took from the electrical fund that was supposed to be used to build a new power plant.

I wish for every success to EGE.

1) to buy the plant

2) convert the plant

3) operate and profit from the sale of electricity

4) and to tell the owners of the plant,

the citizens of Escanaba,

the city of Escanaba,

it’s council,

it’s electrical committee, and

it’s advisor’s ...


Perhaps, someone should open a concession stand where the people of Escanaba, the city, the council, the electrical committee, and their advisors, could buy handkerchiefs to wipe the cr.ap off of their faces?

Now that would be profitable and instructive.
