    Why do people feel the need to be "Richard-Craniums". I think it might be a genetic mutation. I know we have a few of these mutants here.

    Back to the OP's question, any news on the cave opening?

    Rumor is that the genius running the project never asked Stella what voltage and amperage her compressor needs, or ignored it if she told him. So the building electrical system can't support her equipment.

    It was funded by the Feds. I suspect the budget and capabilities of the contractor played a lot more in the design than any idea of how to use the building. I'm told they occasionally rent it out for big events.

    To view the foresight and careful thinking of the city management, let me point you to the $198,000 they paid for the equipment that made up the "Beach Waterpark". You can see it rotting a few hundred yards to the NW of blue hole on goggle maps.

    Anyone who is really interested in this can go back many years through the archives of this forum and read the historical events as they unfolded. The story is a real head shaker.
