Fitch Industries is in the process of buying the 44 acres where the old amphitheater sits weathering away with hopes of rejuvenating its spirit.

The reason, a bad United States economy.

“There’s a whole problem with our economy right now,” Monty Fitch, executive administrator of Fitch Industries, said.
