It was with no small degree of curiosity, I read the recent article titled ‘Decline in memberships a key factor to Broyhill Wellness Center changes’. After the first few lines I was reminded of the words of that great 20th century Warner Brothers philosopher, Blacque Jacque Shellaque, who said “Dis oughtta be good, you bet.”

If it is true that declining memberships precipitated the closing, then logically, the reverse would be true as well. One would think that leadership would have noticed a decline and taken steps to stem the losses early on. Unless of course, those membership ‘losses’ were in fact an engineered crisis. Let’s say that the Publix in Boone noticed a decline in business.
