Thousands in the community applauded the decision of theater owner Gayliene Omary to cancel the play "Rumors" after Neil Simon refused to give permission to remove profanity from the dialogue. The Grove Theatre may now have to close because of a lack of community support. Friends of the theater have set up a "Save the Grove" fund through Western Community Bank and say that if Omary had a dollar for every person who applauded her decision last summer, she would never have to worry about money for the theater again.
