The Powder Mountain Jackals Are Turning On Each Other

Reader query: Are the Powder Mountain Developers now set upon a course which will ultimately lead to their own self-destruction?

By Curmudgeon

According to a Standard-Examiner story today by reporter Di Lewis, the Powder Mountain jackals are turning on each other. Suing each other, accusing each other of dishonesty and skulduggery. Millions of dollars are involved between them. Imagine that.

Another SE Story by reporter Lewis reports residents' claims about the extent of the developers' attempted extortion of the unfortunate residents of Developerville [aka Powderville]. From the story:
Developers have offered to lend the town $750,000 for the first three years of operation, but [town resident Jim ] Halay said that was in exchange for unlimited development at the resort. If the town government refuses that proposal, he said, they will be looking at about $8,000 in taxes per home to pay for police and road maintenance.
Editor's note: There's certainly never a dull moment these days in the formerly bucolic Ogden Valley, now that these self-cannibalizing developer jackals have taken up residence in the neighborhood. We'll also readily confess that we're experiencing more than a wee bit of Schadenfreude, after reading this morning's blockbuster news. And we'll ask our gentle readers: Are the Powder Mountain developers now set upon a course which will lead to their own self-destruction? Well... there's always hope.

Who will be the first to comment? Lets hear it from the Powdervillians!

Update 8/20/09 2:32 am. MT: Upon the sage advice of one of our gentle readers, we offer a hearty but belated Weber County Forum Tip O' the Hat to Std-Ex reporter Di Lewis this afternoon, for her fantastic reporting of today's blockbuster scoop, which logically leads us all to the belief that the Powder Mountain developers may be now in Meltdown Mode.

Better late than never, we suppose.

The sad thing is that the residents will most likely be the brunt of the failure from the greed infested blood sucker developers.

Reminds me of a bunch of greedy piggies squabbling amongst themselves to see who can gobble up the most slop. None of the little piggies give a hoot for the citizens of Ogden Valley and what their collective greed will do to those folks if fully realized.

It will indeed be interesting to watch the predictable downfall of these Powder Mountain developer A-holes, as their "organization" continues to rot from the inside out.

Rudi! You need to give SE reporter Di Lewis a coveted WCF hat-tip for this morning's blockbuster scoop.

I know your mama "raised you up" with good manners.

So get with it, Rudi!

yes! there is a dog said...

We knew they would self destuct at some point. It was only a matter of time.

Cannibalism is sometimes good said...

It's great to see these greedy developers now devouring themselves in their own greed.

Too funny!

Cracks me up, in fact!

How could Greg Greer say it won’t affect the mountain? It already has. That place is a dirty pig style of mistrust and abuse. The confusion found among the owners is exactly how Greg Greer attempts to run that mountain. Not only is the ownership involved in misdeeds but I charge that the lies are propagated by the CEO and his little ban of cronies. Who smile and take your money, then conspire to take your rights. Ogden Valley, don’t be fooled, that awesome legacy of Powder Mountain has been brought down to its knees, by lies, thieves and hypocrites.
