◼ Music festival teeters on the edge
...In previous years, Maxon said the festival enjoyed generous sponsorships from local banks and lumber companies. Those are gone this year.
”They just weren't able to be sponsors this year with the way the economy is,” Maxon explained, adding that the festival is out $50,000 in sponsorship revenue this year. “Even in a promoter's wildest dreams, you can't make that (amount) up in ticket sales.”...
Funny. I don't see the job-killers on the list of sponsors. How much does the "Alliance for Ethical Business" "Humboldt Watershed Council" "Baykeeper" and any of Kaitlin/Cobb's numerous front groups contribute? The big donors used to give ten and twenty thousand, didn't they? How much did "Baykeeper" give?
