Lancaster Manor is Back in the News

May 27, 2010 at 11:45am By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

The Haymarket Arena vote is finished; the Five Guys buzz has died down; now what? Why, it’s the return of Lancaster Manor, of course! Hunter Management was supposed to close on the property by June 1. Surprise surprise, it isn’t going to happen. We’re going to hang on to Lancaster Manor a bit longer, maybe until mid-October.

Sigh.

Will this open a whole new round of battles to keep Lancaster Manor in public hands? I guess we’ll wait and see. But note that the head of the union that represents some employees said, “I think maybe there’s a light at the end of the tunnel if Hunter Management can’t fiance the sale. ... If they can’t get that financing, we question the other parts of the contract.” It’s likely nothing will change other than the date that Lancaster Manor is turned over. But you never know.

Clearly, this is all the fault of the arena.

The arena is the new “smoking ban” - it can now be the thing we blame for everything bad that happens in and around Lincoln.

When bars and restaurants now go out of business, they can blame the arena and the 2% tax just like they blamed the smoking ban. (Surely bad management, awful service, lack of cleanliness, or crappy food are never to blame)
