Op-ed: Vision of auditorium (by Peter Children)

I can see a central auditorium being built here; if I close my eyes I can see the ice rinks, I can here the squeal of the blades as they cross the ice, the roar of the crowd as they shout out for their team to win. I can just see their proud parents reclining in luxurious seats while their youngsters push the puck across the ice…back and forth; how utterly thrilling it will be.

I  can see the stage where numerous acts will preform; spectualar performances will mount the stage to loud applause from cheering crowds while NIACC officials will be wringing their hands with a failed concert series and a recently remodeled auditorium  costing nearly 2 million dollars…full of empty seats.  I can see it all in front of me.

I can see professional wrestling matches where no one comes; do they still have that facade on televison?  I think they do but you need a special code to find it…..its called a time machine.  The latrine will feature a bronze bust of Eric Bookmeyer; his eyes will light up every time some one flushes the toilet and a recorded inner voice will say; “Thank you for coming.”

If indeed the size mirrors two thirds of the super target store the heat bill will approach $20,000.00 a month, or more and the electric bill will be another $15,000.00….or more.

All of this will materialize upon our horizon just about the time Jesus comes, He’ll be the first speaker, maybe even cut the ribbon.

    They say street scape and park inn will save downtown. The thing hasn’t been done 6 mo. and now we need this? It will hurt NIACC and kill the surf. The only need we have is more ice time for hockey and that can be fixed at the fairgrounds by youth hockey the bulls and a LITTLE help from county and city funds. This not a 25 million dollar problem!

    Well Peter the time has come that I must agree with you. I can see all this coming to pass also. This all would be fantastic if it didn’t mean the downfall of NIACC’s auditorum. City not large enough for both. JMHO. :>)

    Pay attention to him, he’s on the mark more often than not and that’s what pisses some people off.

    Eyes will light up every time some one flushes the toilet and a recorded inner voice will say; “Thank you for coming.”
    Or, maybe should say “Thank you for going!”
