Miramar Sold Again?

A citizens stringer sent me this from the Montecito Journal:

Miramar Hotel About To Change Hands Again
Reports are that the Miramar has a buyer; a sale price was agreed to on January 11th or 12th with a local group and, we are told, a deal is "ninety-nine-point-nine-percent done." Reliable sources tell us that an announcement could come as early as Friday, January 19, as to who the buyers are. Our information is that – contrary to earlier reports – the buyers are not the Santa Ynez Chumash Tribe, although that could certainly turn out to be inaccurate. Whoever the buyers are, however, we hope Montecito residents of all persuasions will support their efforts to renovate and re-open the resort post haste, as the sooner the Miramar becomes an operating beachfront hotel/resort again, the easier we will all sleep.

...and the easier we all will no longer have excuses to fret about the rich and the richer people of Montecito and their imagined blight.

A good location for more housing. Or maybe the could find some Chumash Artifacts and open a Casino.

If the buyer is Wendy McCaw:

1. Perhaps she will become so enamored of her newest toy that she will forget how much she enjoyed abusing her old one, and either ignore it or sell it;

2. It will only be a matter of time before the resort employees will be organized by a union!

The Miramar was such a nice place. It would be good to see it restored. It provides jobs and tax revenue. It also had a very nice brunch and parking.
Sure hope Wendy's fingers are not involved.
