COVERAGE YOU CAN COUNT ON CONTINUES NOW WITH COVERAGE YOU CAN COUNT ON CONTINUES NOW WITH QUESTIONS ABOUT THE STATUS OF A PROPOSED WATER PARK IN NORTH AUGUSTA. SCUTTLE’S ISLAND WAS ANNOUNCED MORE THAN TWO YEARS AGO, BUT CONSTRUCTION STILL HASN’T STARTED. NOW, WE’RE LEARNING THE COMPANY BEHIND THE PROJECT IS IN SOME SERIOUS FINANCIAL TROUBLE. MIKE MILLER IS DIGGING DEEPER INTO THE COMPANY’S FINANCES. IT’S BEEN MONTHS SINCE WE’VE HEARD ANYTHING ABOUT SCUTTLE’S ISLAND FROM THE OWNERS, BUT TONIGHT, WE HAVE NEW COURT DOCUMENTS THAT SHOW THE COMPANY’S CREDITORS HAVE FILED A PETITION FOR BANKRUPTCY AGAINST THE DEVELOPER — A SIGN THAT THIS PROJECT MIGHT BE SINKING. THE SCUTTLE’S ISLAND WEBSITE HASN’T BEEN UPDATED IN MONTHS. IT STILL SAYS COMING IN 2016. THE WATER PARK’S FACEBOOK PAGE HASN’T CHANGED SINCE SEPTEMBER 2015. IT MENTIONS THE PARK WILL OPEN SPRING 2016. IT’S FALL 2016 AND THE PROPOSED SITE OF SCUTTLE’S ISLAND IS STILL EMPTY. NO WATER SLIDES OR LAZY RIVERS. THE LAND, LOCATED OFF HIGHWAY 25 IN NORTH AUGUSTA, IS CURRENTLY OWNED BY AN IRISH TRAVELER WHO LIVES IN MURPHY VILLAGE. EVEN THOUGH INVESTORS HAVE BEEN FORTHCOMING WITH DETAILS ABOUT THE 21- MILLION-DOLLAR PROJECT IN THE PAST, THEY HAVEN’T RESPONDED TO OUR EMAILS AND PHONE CALLS IN WEEKS. THIS WEEK, NEWSCHANNEL 6 OBTAINED THIS DOCUMENT FROM THE UNITED STATES BANKRUPTCY COURT SHOWING THAT CEDAR ROCK HOLDINGS, THE COMPANY BEHIND SCUTTLE’S ISLAND, IS BEING ASKED TO FILE BANKRUPTCY. THE COMPANY’S CREDITORS FILED AN INVOLUNTARY PETITION FOR BANKRUPTCY LAST WEEK — SAYING THEY’RE OWED NEARLY 554-THOUSAND DOLLARS. LOCAL ATTORNEYS SAY THIS SORT OF FILING IS RARE BECAUSE THE PERSON OR COMPANY IN DEBT IS USUALLY THE ONE REQUESTING BANKRUPTCY, NOT THE CREDITORS. NO WORD ON WHAT THIS MEANS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT, BUT NORTH AUGUSTA OFFICIALS SAY THEY HAVEN’T RECEIVED ANY PLANS FROM CEDAR ROCK SINCE THE PROJECT WAS FIRST ANNOUNCED. WE’VE EMAILED AND TEXTED THE MANAGER OF SCUTTLE’S ISLAND, BUT A LOT OF THOSE MESSAGES BOUNCED BACK TO US STATING THE ADDRESSES ARE UNDELIVERABLE. WE ALSO REACHED OUT TO THE FORMER SPOKESPERSON OF THE PROJECT, WHO TELLS US HE CAN’T COMMENT ON THE MATTER. WE’RE WAITING TO HEAR BACK FROM THE ATTORNEY WHO IS REPRESENTING THE CREDITORS IN THIS CASE.
