It's not the Embassy, but the Scotts Cornucopia is worth saving, too

When we first moved to Fort Wayne in the mid-'70s, it seemed every other car had a bumper sticker: "I gave to save the Embassy."
I had no idea what that meant at the time, only learning later that the beautiful theater had come very close to being just so much downtown rubble, and a gigantic community effort helped preserve it.
Maybe a similar grassroots movement should be made for the Scotts cornucopia, for it seems lots of people are pretty upset that the lofty southside symbol of plenty might be coming up empty.
Here's links to a some blog posts, including what ARCH has to say:
