Goose cooked

In The Signal's April 10 front-page story about the end of the Loose Goose and the cancellation of the Loose Goose Wine Festival by Peter Goossens, writer Josh Premako interviewed me about my ongoing attempt to be compensated for the work I did for the company.

I am concerned that the last quote in the article gives the impression that I think Mr. Goossens will have other "great ideas," and compelled to clarify the context in which that comment was made.

I was enticed into supporting the Loose Goose as Mr. Goossens presented it to me as a "great idea." I made it clear to Mr. Premako that I was concerned that Mr. Goossens would attempt to convince other people in the community to support whatever his next folly is using the same self-serving portrayal. This "great idea" cost me three years with no income, a tarnished professional reputation, mounting legal fees, and left me with a pocketful of promises. I do not want any of my friends, neighbors or colleagues to be similarly duped into giving their time, energy or money to facilitate Mr. Goossens perpetrating another deception.

Do you see the big difference the little quotation marks around "great idea" makes? Ask Mr. Premako to call me again, so that I can explain irony to him.
