OLD REID OWNER SPOTTED AT WINE EVENT DOING TONY SOPRANO IMPERSONATION

(Richmond, IN)--Ever wonder what happened to Bob Ciprietti?  He’s the developer who owns the deteriorating old Reid hospital and who now owes more than $350,000 in back property taxes to Wayne County.  Cipretti has refused to respond to local officials, but he’s out and about in Delaware.  According to the online newspaper capegazette.com, Cipretti spent last weekend at the Lewes Yacht Club’s wine tasting event.  The review states "Bob “Big Cip” Ciprietti did his best Tony Soprano imitation (he’s not very good at it) as he held court behind Touch of Italy’s gigantic antipasto platter and mountains of those not-to-be-missed Italian cookies."  Touch of Italy is Ciprietti's Delaware restaurant.
