Alleged Empire owner says tavern closing and apologizes

Just a few minutes ago, the following comment was posted by Dave Proud under the blog “End of the Empire” immediately below. He claims to be the CEO of the corporation that owns the Empire. Clicking on this blog's title will take you to a page at the Ohio Secretary of State's website that shows someone named Dave C. Proud is, indeed, the agent for 50FIVE Group, Inc., the tavern’s owner. While we cannot confirm that the comment was authored by the agent David C. Proud, it does sound somewhat credible to us:

Respected Norwood Residents. I am the CEO of the corperation that owns Empire Tavern. I want to let you know that Empire Tavern will be closing in the next couple of weeks by its own will. We have put alot into trying to make Empire work but it has become obvious that it cannot exsist in the current locatation. After this occurance I and my company have lost all taste for the Tavern buisness. I hope that you and your readers will accept our apology.
