Simpich Showcase delayed until ‘09

       The opening of the Simpich Showcase has been postponed.
       On the morning of Oct. 10, David Simpich had cheerfully told an audience at the Old Colorado City History Center he hoped to open the new, multi-faceted center in Old Colorado City in December with his marionette-theater performances of “A Christmas Carol.” But later that day, he found out that contractors had revised their previous estimates and decided they could not get the space ready until 2009.
       “We will now have to rethink our plans,” Simpich explained in an e-mail, “and wait to see how and when things move forward.”
