Koch on the naughty list?
Santa’s reviewing his list and checking it twice and that makes me wonder whether or not Tom Koch is on Santa’s “naughty” list this year. If you remember, Koch is the owner of the Ideal Theater and offered free showings of the movie “Purple” last summer in return for donations. People lined up around the block to see the movie and donations at the ticket counter totaled more than $4,000. After Downtown Development returned the money, Koch stated it would be donated to another charitable cause(s). If he has done so then he will be on Santa’s “nice” list, but if he has not, then Santa should put nothing but coal in the man’s stocking. And if he has donated the money to charity, Santa may want confirmation–and so might the many people of Clare who made donations.
