According to my sources Eagle Golf was going to sell golf equipment that was at 3 golf courses for a ridiculously cheap rate to the city, so they could lease it to the next golf managment group. Eagle called Larry Anderson and he never returned their call. I think they did not want to pay all the money to get the equipment out of the courses and send it to the other courses. Shame on Larry Anderson for not returning the call! Not good business practice, to not return calls.

Yeah, right... Larry Anderson has nothing better to do with his time than return the calls of the various screwballs and fatheads leaving him voice mail.
Here's a quarter - go buy yourself a life.
If you're referring to Larry Anderson, an administrator in the department of neighborhoods, I'm guessing he may not be returning calls because he has to show he's objective when companies are bidding on leasing the golf courses.
Calls and emails fail to get returned all the time, zgirl. Sometimes as a journalist I have to call people six or eight times to get them to talk. When I was in sales, it was even worse: no one wants to talk to a salesperson, especially someone they don't already have an existing relationship with.
If Eagle Golf is serious about selling equipment, they should be prepared to bombard the person with calls, emails, letters, and personal visits. All of this with a respectful and appreciative attitude, of course, if they want to make the sale.
Oh, and in my own life I regularly get calls and emails in a volume far beyond my ability to individually answer. If I took the time to return every call and email I get - especially from people who email me based on one of the thousands of blog posts I have generated - I would get nothing else done in my day. The persistently noisy cog generates the most lubricant, as they say.
Larry Anderson is currently working out of (3) three offices and running his wheels off. Mike is correct concerning persistence. When you hear that the city has been grossly understaffed for several years it is in fact true.
