Well big surprise, it's not opening this summer. Wonder why? Journey hasn't raised enough money auctioning off Lucy's originals? ????

I wasn't very surprised it wasn't going to open either. Is this thing really more than a pipe dream at this stage. And who really is going to travel to come see said hall of fame the other 51 weeks of the year?

How much/many exhibits and materials do they have for the NCC?

 

Gregg:  WISH I KNEW 'someone' who actually KNOWS: and will talk; see my comments/concerns re October RUN; comments regarding Chautauqua connection; etc.  Your QUESTION above is a VERY GOOD ONE; thanks for doing it; I would also like to hear more from TAYLOR, who knows 'something' about Journey auctioning off treasures should have been kept in archive....

 

I'm STILL CONCERNED....Loving you, JK :fabrary:

I don't know anything about Journey auctioning off Lucy's stuff other than what came out a few years ago. I have my suspicions about the woman as someone told me Journey is doing the same stuff but on the down low and that she's not to be trusted, but I can't prove anything. She definitely doesn't have Lucy's legacy in mind. She's all about rubbing elbows with the rich and famous and being associated with modern comics.

NONE OF IT!!!! 

 

I promised Lucie, and stand on it; no SMUT in the chronology....enough said; and I keep my promises.

 

It's just that, even though ONLY a VOLUNTEER, although a nearly full-time one for nearly 5 years, [from 10/2002-7/2007, I WAS one of the 'FORMERS' [a name I dreamed up] who went on-line to 'talk' to those who were lied to about circumstances surrounding the inner-working of the Center at the time (2005 & beyond and leading up to the GREAT FIRE); giving each who chose a chance to give testimony.

 

We were given the opportunity by a benefactor, who chooses to remain anonymous, and I agreed to put myself 'out there' with my name; was sent $$ by messenger to put my name on the website which was set up in our name; boy, did that ever get me in a pickle and a near-world of HURT!!!!  But, a ton of the TRUTH as WE KNEW it was on line over a year.

 

I don't regret a minute of it; sometimes the truth hurts......  :fabrary:

Thanks, Taylor, luv!

 

I get the feeling I'm viewed as less-than-knowledgeable lately; my memory is still with me; and what many of my friends, paid employees; and other volunteers, suffered during the reign of you-know-who.  Others in charge were also capable of underhandedness in the ensuing years; perhaps that why Wanda was in discontent!

 

Paid, er, compensated for her appearance. :fabrary:

Joyce,

that last part kinda bothers me, so what if she's paid to come to the festivals? I doubt anyone else is doing it for nothing; at the very least, they're likely having their expenses (i.e. travel, hotel, meals) covered and why shouldn't they?  Maybe I'm missing something here but to most life-long fans (and being a big personal fan of The Lady herself, having met her first when I was a "kid" in my 20s!), having Wanda Clark's (continued) participation and involvement in these events should certainly be considered a draw, if not a coup! 

 

Yup.... always loved Wanda, always will! :lucycoy:

Checked with MY source; given bad info by the 'other' one; Wanda was here May, 2009 (following year of GREAT FIRE); arrdubya, interviewee, apparently!!!; and once again, in August, 2013.....  JK :fabrary:
