Dawsonville Pool Room Update

The Dawsonville Pool Room is still closed, even though the state has lifted the liens filed against it.  Apparently the IRS became interested in the question of filing liens of their own once they heard about the state action, and so is currently investigating whether or not to do so.  The owner wants to meet with them to arrange a payment plan, so that he can re-open the place, but they won't even meet with him until they finish their internal paperwork process.

The community is stepping up, however.
A unique beauty pageant, scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. on July 14 at the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame, is the first planned event to "Help Save the Pool Room."

The next day on July 15 a concert will be held at Veterans Memorial Park featuring local musician Dell Conner. Other local, family-friendly bands will also appear on stage from 3 to 10 p.m.

The following weekend, on July 21, a car and bike show will be held at the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame beginning at 4 p.m.

Accounts have also been set up at United Community Bank and First Citizens Bank of Georgia to "Save the Pool Room."
It's amazing how much charity is pouring out from the community just to try to fix the deranged behavior of its government.  We could be using this charity for other things if the government wasn't making problems for us to fix.

For that matter, if the government really wants some money, why not just let them reopen the place and earn it?

If the carcass permits, I may have to attend one of these events, and chip in a sawbuck, just on G.P.
