    My wife and I are natives and can undeniably and uncategorically say that this WILL FAIL. We have seen virtually evey type of speculation come to this town, and NOTHING lasts. We have no history, they continue to tear it down. This is a speculators attempt at making money. This environment is NOT condusive to this having a chance of survival. Have you seen any PROFESSIONAL sports teams in this town that survived? It is all about $$$ and nothing more. If we make a little at the tables and on quick slapping up of buildings, WE ARE THE KINGS, but as far as any lasting, historical, meaningful contributions to this community... if it isn't tied to someone making a quick buck not only will it not last, it will eventually fail miserably.
