Related 8 thoughts on “One more Downtown Pic” The DBA was subsidized with tax dollars in the amount of $95K/year. The citizens were providing the rent for that building.

LikeLike Reply Hahahahahahaha,,,DBA for rent while trying to lure more business into a very vacant downtown,,,so stupid, so stupid. LMAO at the stupidity! I’ll probably carry this smile on my face for hours. Geesh, have Trish grab a ladder and a cordless drill and go down there and take that awning down.

Like the cheese shop that doesn’t have any cheese – the get businesses shop is vacant and out of business… you can’t make this stuff up…LOL LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Lawrence, SLAP that penguin off your TV set NOW! This REALLY isn’t funny, as it’s tax money that COULD have gone to MANY different places that NEED it, and NOT THE ZOO, which zoo? The DBA was a one sided, prima donna excuse for some dolt to have a high $$$ job, nothing more, nothing less. And as for Penguins they come from the Antarctic. NOT the zoo.. NOW, just watch out for your TV set! LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Tell me about it – the Penguin on the top of my television (before it explodes) is going in the trash first thing today.

What could go wrong besides just about everything? Add the entrenched crony system and you have a mix that is sure to turn this area into the new little Detroit on the Prairie.
