Huka/SMG proposal to run Saenger is on the table again. Huka says they already have at least ten performances ready to finalize for the remainder of 2013, and at least 64 so far for next year. Those possibilities could be lost if the City does not take action as soon as possible. The Saenger will be shut down October 1 if no decision made pursuant to the City’s agreement to finance it for one year.
Tarsands are already shipping through metro Mobileâ€™s residential neighborhoods and downtown business area, with plans to eventually increase to more than 120 carloads of tar sand oil per day.
