The 'boys' don't like to be embarrased. They pay public relations firms to spin and cover up their mistakes, and it is all about ego. If they can, they will position it that Dave Checketts 'saved' Kiel Opera House with their help. That it was the proper time. No. That's not how it was, or is.So, let the record stand. Ed Golterman saved Kiel Opera House. How do we know? Because he says so.
There is some significant truth to be communicated before the blanket of hypocrisy drops over it all. Dave Checketts did not save Kiel Opera House...You know who saved Kiel Opera House over a critical period of time in her history. You have it all in your files.
...The people who saved Kiel were led by Ed Golterman, Russ Carter, Jeff and Ele Steward and the late Jim Heidenry.
Have you noticed the Blues started making a remarkable run as Checketts announced he was proceeding with Kiel? Is there a connection? Of course. Always has been.
