To the editor:
The July 26 article in the Beacon regarding bids for the former hospital and land was confusing to me, kind of like “Who’s on First?” by Abbott and Costello.
Were there two bids or only one on the table when commissioners accepted the bid of Jacobs Real Estate on July 2?
The bid by Crown Management actually seemed to be a real prospect for the property, including creating 250 new jobs, and last I checked, Brunswick County had one of the higher unemployment rates in the state and the state is lagging the nation.
So what jobs will Jacobs bring? Or is that, “I don’t know, who is on third?”
