Paul Takes Care Of The Little Guys
It looks like a few people may have judged Paul Allen a little too harshly over the Bankruptcy of Oregon Arena Corps, according to The Oregonian and OregonLive....
Lately, Allen has been voluntarily paying up, said several creditors that received checks from Oregon Concessions Inc., a sister company to Allen's Trail Blazers basketball team.
"Being a small business, I thought they won't pay us," said Jan Beaudoin, who owns A-Z Stamp and Engraving with her husband. She recently received a check for about $50. "I was real thrilled to get that."
Trail Blazers representatives declined to say how much money has been sent to vendors or how many were to be paid off. Bankruptcy court filings show that the company owed dozens of businesses a total of about $865,000.
