Everyone will have to wake up to the facts and reality someday. Either today or tomorrow. Earlier the better... more you burn the deeper the scars and longer the recovery.

Maybe they learned the truth about Sidney and it caustic attitude and chose to have nothing to do with it.

The housing market had recently recovered a bit since the bottom from couple of years ago. With this news I doubt that this recovery will continue

If you truly believe what you propose will truly save or community why not fund it your self.

There was a post earlier asking some very pertinent questions why have you not answers them since you are going to do what you can do to help.
Also I thought you had posted at one time that you were in direct contact with Mr. Morris and the s nior management of Cabela's
If so use your influence to secure funding to assist in the single-handed saving of our community.

I would be so grateful if Johnny Morris and Jim Cabelas could team up to assist with a plan like this.

lol . I find it so funny the post which question the poster comment if this happened at Cabelas that the poor was out to take the rich money.this site is run by a fired ex employee who get an enjoyment how much Cabela’s employees and Sidney residents can suffer.

The Cabela's family are sell outs! That why Sidney is in ruins. Restaurants are closing their doors!

Cannot believe people are yet drinking the koolaod ... understandably the ones who have roots in Sidney are hopeful. Pity the ones that have no roots and still living in hopes. Sidney can never be the same like the way it was in the Cabela’s glory days.
Ones that were marketable and brave have taken their call and encased on the opportunities outside Sidney. Pity the ones waiting for housing to rebound to get every penny out of their house sale or may be some employer to come and magically replace Cabela’s glory.

So you propose to have a fund that will provide financial relief for those displaced by the ACQUISITION of Cabelas by Bass Pro?
You stated that this would provide a cash flow for the community.
Now I have a couple of questions that YOU WILL respond to to validate for POSITION!

  1. How do you plan to acquire the funds to enact this proposal.
  2. Whom do you propose to over see and facilitate this project
  3. What criteria will you use to determine who is eligible as well as the amount of relief that you feel they deserve or entitled to?
  4. Is this a one time solution or a constant solution for the future.
  5. If this is a long term solution were will the constant source of funds or revenue to maintain the level of assistance you are going to require.
  6. Will you register your charitable foundation as a 503 c entity.

Your proposal is neither sustainable or practical. A one time cash payout will not help us or the community in the foreseeable future. It will only prolong the inevitable, similar to pain management to a terminally ill patient.

Your proposal is similar to our failed social security system, systematically forcing people to depend upon the hand out and not seeking opportunities to succeed and and to provide for themselves.

Impossible to rebuild Sidney to to the same where it was few years ago. High paying jobs will never return. Agriplastics and Vitalix type of employers won’t do much good other than handful minimum wage jobs. MMP was a ray of hope that faded away. The new outdoor startups in this era will never be able grow like Cabelas due to competition and bigger market players in the industry. This will be tough on the housing and employment in Sidney.

Mr ALL CAPS should be called Mr Welfare State. Take money from the rich and give it to the DC employees.

GIVEN THE FACT THE COUNTY VALUATION WENT DOWN OVER 200 MILLIONS DOLLARS AND NOW NEWS OF A BUSINESS WHICH WAS TO EMPLOY 300 TO 450 EMPLOYEES JUST STATED NO ARE NO LONGER PLANNING TO LOCATE IN SIDNEY.

This is impossible because we all know:

  • there will be two corporate offices (Sidney and Springfield)
  • the computer systems will take decades to merge
  • no Cabela's employees will be laid off

_the DC will stay open

WHY THE REVENUE SHORTFALL????

This was not the dollar a year lease program. The plan was to sell the building to mmp and then MMP were to employ 327 employees and invest 50 million dollars in the plant(or more).

Post ID: @fip+110rQa47

Despite of the dollar a year lease and nation wide advertising ... no plausible interests in leasing or buying any of the buildings. They ones showing interest were underestimating the.. when the facts are known they back out.
Will be interesting to see how successful UST Xpansion will be in their Sidney venture.

I guess my question to this poster what does the city of Sidney have to lose if the merger agreement is carried out as much as possible which was agreed to and if a fund was set up for displaced distribution center employees similar to what the owner of bass pro suggested for corporate employees laid off. The answer is dollar wise nothing and one poster who was fired may get upset that displaced workers are given hope along with the city of Sidney. As you remember his grandfather said this was socialism or something.

One poster stated earlier that a poster who stated we could peruse making sure the details of the merger were carried out for all employees (which could perhaps mean hundred of thousands of dollars of income for the Sidney area), and perhaps we could set up a fund which the owner of bass pro suggested in the past for corporate employees could be set now to assist distribution center employees to assist them at this time (which could mean hundred of thousands of dollars to the Sidney community) . This poster stated this community is well on the steps to recovery and your help is not needed nor wanted . GIVEN THE FACT THE COUNTY VALUATION WENT DOWN OVER 200 MILLIONS DOLLARS AND NOW NEWS OF A BUSINESS WHICH WAS TO EMPLOY 300 TO 450 EMPLOYEES JUST STATED NO ARE NO LONGER PLANNING TO LOCATE IN SIDNEY. To this poster do you still stand by your statement this community is well on it way to recovery and the assistance I suggested which could help is not needed nor wanted?
