state of the bucks arrival at 7 corners 24.Feb.2004 23:11

At the H.A.N.D. meeting last thursday, some attendees had heard via construction workers stopping in for lunch at the Red and Black, that the 'bucks lease had already been signed. Attendees said it had been allude to in indymedia posts last week, but apparrently not confirmed as definite. It seems that the lease being signed pretty much makes the 'bucks presence at the corners a done deal...or is there some chance yet? ....the "hand" neighborhood is deeply divided pro and against the 'bucks judging from the meeting representation.
