According to the KNS Bottom Line Blog by Carly Harrington, a $44,000 lien has been filed against Cherries internet Cafe and others "for work done on the build-out of the Market Square business."

Apparently notice of the lien was taped to the front door of the business at 17 Market Square earlier in the week.

An earlier Bottom Line report said Ingrid Gee was selling the company to a management group and that Gee would be moving on to other projects. The latest report referenced above says that "contingencies required for completion of the sale" may have put a hitch in the giddy-up.

All of this appears to confirm some background chatter we've been hearing.

It seems like the business couldn't decide whether it was an internet cafe, tea and sandwich shop, radio show, dating club, lifestyle website, or what. Perhaps new management will refocus the business and people will get paid. But it also seems like Ingrid Gee's personality was the flagship product, so it's not clear what direction it would take without her.

Sadly, Ingrid was the problem, in my opinion, as both her personality and business history pretty much doomed things from the get-go. like you, i'm hopeful new ownership can set a course blending together many types of media and making the location and business a winning enterprise.
