The dude pulled some amazing comments straight out of his a$$ didn't he?

This thing is going to take 5 to 7 years to build and have the "Shake down" minimum.   It took nearly 2 years to get Pat Roberts Hall to a point the gubment would allow significant research activity.

Not that Weefer is the most reliable source or anything, but there's this:

Quote
Construction of the biodefense laboratory in Manhattan, Kansas, is “the most important economic development event in Kansas since railroads crossed the length of the state, some observers opine. Jon Wefald, president of Kansas State University, notes that Manhattan’s population could double in 15 years as Kansas State and the city “are poised to become the epicenter of a Silicon Valley of animal health for this state, America, and the world.” He anticipates that the center will “draw hundreds of animal-health and food-safety researchers worldwide” and will “present a huge gravitational pull” for “companies to line up offices and plants along a research corridor stretching east to Kansas City and all the way to Columbia, Missouri.” Wefald continued, “This event will go down in our state’s history as one of Kansas’ finest hours—period. Amen and goodnight.”

 :lol:

He really said this? Amen and goodnight? hahaha

Thought the same thing.  I am now realizing I really miss this type of thing from the Weefer, Schultz just does not compete - Olive Garden excepted

It isn't the amount of jobs but how many of the jobs are high paying.  A large influx of upper class would be huge for the manhattan economy.  I mean, say it brings 1,500 people.  How many of these people are going to make > $100k?  That's the important number, not the amount of total people (imo).

 Also, ya, red lobster would blow the doors off this SOB.


The Red Lobster is very important for our status as a big time city.  Plus, with all of these people with high paying people coming to town they are going to need a good place to eat, entertain, "do business", etc.  Red Lobster.

Hearing rumblings we might be getting some form of bus service as well.  Thanks again, NBAF.





I hope we get it before April, so I can nail down prom ressies.

Please confirm for me that the Red Lobster envy is a joke.   I was a student at K-State in the early 90's but haven't been back to Manhattan in about 16 years.   I am planning a return trip next month and was hoping to find some good places to eat with my entourage.   I would be seriously alarmed to find out that a bad chain restaurant is considered fine dining in Manhattan in the year 2010.

The Red Lobster was forced to close down.  Everyone in town flooded the doors and wouldn't leave the place, staying in the dining room until hours past close every night- eating and eating, and eating, and eating...  Ask anyone from MHK what's the best food in town and the surefire answer is Red Lobster.  The staff couldn't handle the demand for food that MHK put on the restaurant.

Construction on the Platinum Lobster is expected to be complete by mid-November.

Based on my community and regional planning degree (in progress)... If this is similar to USDA in Ames, it could be responsible for roughly 1,500 to 2,000 jobs. Add families to that and that would be roughly 3,000 to 6,000. Add increased business/commerce/etc. and you guys could be around 10,000 more people. Good get for Manhattan.

Anything Wefald says =  :facepalm:

He's so incredibly stupid.

You're honestly a bitch for saying that. Yes Wefald stayed on too long and got too old... anyone who knew him knew K-State was his life. He's a bigger k-stater than any of us and has done more for the university than we will ever know.

Dood, if you need a rendering of what the red lobster will look like, I would recommend google images.  Also, RL's commercials are the best.  They're all like:  come to RL and eat 20 pounds of lobster for $6.  Then you go there and you only eat like 8 pounds, cause you're full and this ain't an episode of Man v Food.  I mean, you're not trying to OD on seafood or anything, just get your money's worth, ya know?

Also, you pocket a couple of those biscuits cause they reheat pretty well in the microwave and you might regret not eating more of them when you had the chance.

article on NBAF. Seems like a important study will be coming out in a few weeks...

Quote
In the next few weeks, Richardson says officials are waiting for the release of a National Academies report on conducting foot-and-mouth disease research on the mainland of the United States. He's confident the findings will support relocation of the laboratory to Kansas.
