Here's my nomination in the "Wonderful" category. Lime Kiln, after its rescue, seems to be a wonderful showcase. I had the pleasure of attending a super performance by the Seldom Scene there recently, and took this photo of old friends Ben Eldridge and Fayssoux Starling McLean.

Lime Kiln notwithstanding, I vote "nuts!"

What wonderful news. I LOVE the Lime Kiln theater and was heartbroken when it closed.

Can anybody here give us an update on its new incarnation? How solid is its financial footing now? What is necessary to make this work permanently for us? Any problems we should be aware of?

Lexington SO needs things like this to keep us alive and vital!

Thanks to your alert, I was able to get to the Seldom Scene concert at Lime Kiln a few weeks ago. I love those guys.
Ben Eldridge and I had a great conversation after the concert and this photo is our memento.
I apologize for the quality of the photograph. He was really tired, and I forgot to take off my hat and mask.
(I had considered robbing Lime Kiln and making off with all the loot, but a peek at the till convinced me it wasn't worth the risk.)

Looks more like Ben Eldridge posing with captured member of ISIS who had advanced to the outskirts of Lexington by disguising himself as Dick Cheney.

These tourists have got to be stopped!

Now that's interesting. Buffs gone Amok!

Are there any published news stories you can point to giving us more details? (who, what, where, why, when?)

If they was like me maybe the embezzelers is because their husbands don't give them enough money and they just need it and there isnt a way to get it cause it is just too tempting if they handle some other mans' money all day. I say they should be punished anyway to teach them a lesson even though they probably needed it, huh? That would teach them a lesson and maybe their husbands will get the message and not be so stingy anymore, huh?

But the thing that is really worrying me is I saw in a paper that the county is going to buy drones and fly all over us just like in Pakistand which is really scary. What is wrong with those people anyway? I think it is just crazy that I could be changing my clothes and the county would fly a drone and take pictures of me and then pass them around on the county employees computer and maybe even put them on the county website, huh? They could do that to be mean if you maybe don't pay your taxes on time and that makes me worried cause we are late this time on taxes, but we'll pay them soon as we can even though they might waste our hard earned money on drones and stupid stuff like that.

But I had a thought maybe its not all bad that if they had the drones maybe they could get all the illegal aileens here in Rockbridge and even though they drive all illegal with no licenses they could not get away fast enough and the county police could execute them by shooting a rocket from the drone? They do this a few times and that would teach them a good lesson, huh? And maybe the rest of them would get skared and run back to Mexico and Islamer countries where they came from, huh? I have lots of good ideas like this.

Love and kisses ..............

You don't miss a thing, do you Sweetness?

On another note, the musical extravaganza hosted by David and Linda Krantz last week was out of this world. Musicians of every quality, from the best to the worst, stepped up and gave it their all. It was totally charming.

The Krantzes make Rockbridge everything it can and should be!

This is just weird. The Board of Supervisors has voted to spend $20K of our money (another $30K is requested of other government bodies) to fund a study by “The Southeastern Research Institute” according to the News-Gazette, on promoting business in Rockbridge.

I can’t find a web site for this outfit (in Atlanta?), and the only work I’ve found by them is in aeronautics. Maybe they meant Southeast Research Institute, on the beach in Florida, also no findable web site.

In my experience these kinds of business promotional studies are a huge waste of money that almost never yield anything but expense to government, feed contractors very nicely thank you, and in the worst cases lead to additional investments that are disasters (e.g. Buena Vista golf course.)

Is this as cockamamie as it looks, or is there anything solid here? Who is “Southeast …” and what are its ties to local people who want to funnel money to them?

Rusty Ford voted against it. He has a pretty good head on his shoulders.

The irony

So.....the group most responsible for running off potential business investment wants to waste $30,000 on advice on how not to run off business?

Good news! Coondog Consulting service is available at half the price and the first report is free.
