HOGANSVILI HOlVE NEWS - THURSDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2000 PAGE 7 ritage Grant Approved for Royal Theatre Flint Regional ment Historic Preservation Lynn Miller, announced to officials late last week that would receive the 2000 grant for the restora- the Royal Theater that doubles Hall. "The official letter has to .its way through channels, so we don't know exactly how much we got. But we asked for sixty plus thousand and should get slightly less because so many projects were funded." Miller said that in the local area, Grantville and West Point also received grants. Miller cited the good work of the Hogansville Charitable Trust as instru- mental in procuring the grant. "The planning that the trust and its archi- tect did made the project a winner. The attention to detail of John Kennedy, Joan DeMarrais and Susanne Cook was very commendable. The detailed plan- ning put the project over the top." The trust spent $4500 for architec- tural plans raised from last year's Hummingbird Festival, Hogansville's yearly fund-raiser. "I couldn't be more delighted," said trust board member John Hardy Jones. This is great news for Hogansville and the trust. And it underscores the impor- tance of this year's Hummingbird Festival and Old Time Country Fair." The festival will be the main vehi- cle for raising the approximately $35,000 needed for matching funds for the grant. "It's great that the grant was announced just before the festival," said trust board member Jack Leidner. "It's the perfect time to launch the 'Fixin' to Fix the Royal' campaign to raise the matching funds."

Arnold said he didn't think you could change zoning in the mid- dle of the stream. "We have already spent a million dollars on the project," he said. It is ridiculous to have to spend money on legal fees for the rezoning, Arnold said in a phone interview Tuesday morning. He added, "We are not going to stand for the city to do this to us." Arnold's lawyers said at this point, they were not saying any- thing about the matter.
