So far three differing individuals, all with speculative ideas on who and what would payoff the bonding.
November 28, 2011 captioned by Daily Iowegian — DNR is backing two companies that were hired to manage Honey Creek; however Chuck Corell, Adm. of DNR’s division of Conservation and Recreation states: Quote — “However, yet we are still requesting that the state’s fiscal 2013 budget include monies to payoff the $33 million bonds.” — unquote.
July 9, 2013 — as captioned in Daily Iowegian — Bill pays off Honey Creek Resort debt. The bill signed by Governor Branstad will appropriate $33 million from the state’s budget surplus to payoff the bonds.
So in the end, who was correct? — Deborah D. Thorton was!What has been witnessed here is governmental control at expense of unwitting taxpayer participants, without even having a vote and it is they that now will absorb the cost of Honey Creek — the taxpayers of Iowa. All for an endeavour that history will prove to be an exercise in futility in terms of economical explosion. This will forever be Honey Creek’s legacy.
In the early days of America, Briton was unwilling for the pioneers of the 13 United States of America to be free. Consider the statement included in our Declaration of Independence written in 1776, “The history of the King of Great Briton is a history of repeated injuries and usurptions, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.” Included was The Stamp Act which was taxation on Americans to raise funds to help support the British Army stationed in America after 1763. Those early American pioneers were confronted with much adversity in establishing the great nation which America is today.
During the War of 1812, British forces had taken prisoner a physician, Dr. William Beanes and held him aboard a warship in Chesapeak Bay. Francis Scott Key and John Skinner both from Washington, D. C. were given permission by the Secretary of State James Monroe to communicate with the British in an effort to get the doctor released.
