Say it ain't so, Scott! They's a-reportin' that they might have done sold your theater, the Lincoln Theater, to someone else. Oh, Scott...Will your trials and tribulations never end?
Ah, but the dysfunctional details - courtesy of our pal Gaul Potleaf - keep a-comin'. Here are a couple of my favorites...
The non-profit Port Angeles Theatre has raised between $79,000 and $80,000 in its Light Up the Lincoln campaign...according to board of directors President Matthew Rainwater.
Between? And after all this time, after all the stories, after all the fuss and bother...That total amount raised hasn't really moved - other than to somewhere "between" $79,000 and $80,000.
Rainwater said another group in Port Angeles, one he would not identify, has been interested in purchasing the theater. "We reached out to them (Wednesday)," Rainwater said.
You finally reached out to them the day it's announced the theater's been taken off the market? No need to rush, right? Typical Port Angeles...
"We let them know if the sale does not go through that it's time for us to come together, instead of having competing interests, which shut each other down, to hopefully work together for the good of the community."
He said it was "a shame" that the groups had not gotten together before now, and said he didn't know why that hadn't occurred.
Memo to Matthew: It didn't occur because you didn't do anything. If you knew this other group was out there, you could have made the call. But you didn't. Scott didn't. No one did. Typical Port Angeles...
And so, we come to the end of another chapter of The Lincoln Theater is STILL for Sale. Be sure to tune in next time to find out if this has all been a dream...Or if it's turned into a nightmare for Scott Nagel. Will Scott have to keep his day job? Who are these mysterious new buyers? Will they offer Scott a day job? Will the Lincoln Theater be converted to digital, or become another "antique mall"? And what of beautiful Barb Frederick?
Most importantly, will Scott Nagel be returning somewhere between $79,000 and $80,000 to his supporters? Or might there be a zero or two missing for "overhead costs"? To find out, stay tuned! Or not!
