Hyde Park Co-op Markets, 6 May 2014 [cached]
Board members James Poueymirou, James Withrow and Mike Lowenthal pointed out the fiscal constraints of an insolvent institution that cannot get debtor-in-possession or a commercial loan, even with offers of help as large as Bruce Sagan's $500,000.
Not even the last-minute offer of a half-million-dollar loan by HydePark businessman and Herald owner Bruce Sagan would persuade the board, led by Board president Jim Poueymirou, to explore a $3.4 million loan offer by the National Cooperative Bank (NCB) [actually a term sheet].
Sagan expressed deep disappointment a the news. "54 years ago the manager of the Hyde Park Co-Op knocked on my door to ask me, a young newspaper reporter working downtown, if I would like to try to save the failing neighborhood newspaper, the Hyde Park Herald," Sagan said. "He promised that he would help support that effort to revitalize the community's newspaper. And he did. Monday I tried to return the favor."
For more than three hours, more than 70 members, including employees, urged the board to explore the loan option before making a final decision. Nominating committee head Jay Mulberry said ignoring the offer from Sagan was a criminal act of neglect.
"Bruce Sagan is offering $500,000, but he has 100,000 friends who have another $500,000. With an offer like that, something can really be done.
It was nice of Bruce Sagan to offer $500,000 on the day the U. of c. offer was to expire, but since the Co-Op president had been in touch with him for at least three weeks and explained the timing and deadlines the Board was facing, the offer can only be classified as a nice gesture, but too late.
The article went on to document the community meeting that preceded the Co-Op board's final vote and how the brave and valiant Bruce Sagan (who happens to be the Herald's owner and probably penned the article, which was mysteriously missing a byline), had promised a half a million to the Co-Op to save it.
Sadly, Sagan and his staff weren't the only ones who couldn't understand why anyone would want to put the Co-Op out of its miser.
