Now the town is hoping to dismantle Greksa’s online soapbox. A recent Clear Creek Courant article noted local merchants are throwing their weight behind the less eloquent web addresses www.georgetowncolorado.biz and www.visitgeorgetowncolorado.com, hoping they can de-thrown Greksa’s sites from the coveted top spots on Google and other online search engines. The story noted the town’s promotions committee considered purchasing www.georgetowncolorado.com outright, but since Greksa supposedly wanted $35,000 for it and the committee’s total annual budget was only $30,000, boosters had to go a different route.
Even if Georgetown’s new web addresses improve its online image, there’s still the matter of the railroad itself. As another Courant article reported, mechanical issues caused the train be closed this past weekend – at least its ninth maintenance shut-down in the past two seasons. Its going to take more than a Google search to get this locomotive back on track. – Joel Warner
