        “I am not involved with the Garfield Street Fair. I am the chair for Freddie Fest a festival in Frederickson happening on August 17th at Sound Life Church.”

    Oops, Kate Emanuel is telling deceptive lies! She does not give a link to the handbill and poster that supposedly list the “details.” They list, “Live Music by:,” eight bands. Details? The bands will not play in the order they are listed. They do not give the time each band will play. I’ve learned that one band has dropped out.

    I emailed Elizabeth Johnson of the GSBA (Garfield Street Business Association) asking when the bands will play, and she emailed back on Mon. the 12th: “Strangely Alright @ 10:30 am Mt Hwy Bluegrass @ 11:30.” Those are the only two bands she gave times for. But, I’ve since learned that those times are not true. She also wrote, “mostly folk & bluegrass with some rock as well.” Is that true? Mostly? Some?

    Why is it that, if the GSBA wants, “to get (sic) word out,” to the public about their street fair, that they don’t give a damn to give the public a correct schedule of their live music events?

    So, Kate, Elizabeth, somebody, what is the correct schedule of the live bands who will play at your street fair?
