Poll question: Jacko wants to sell. If you could afford to buy Neverland Ranch, what would you do with it?


Jackson wants to refinance or sell Neverland
We expect to have this matter resolved well before May 14, says lawyer

LOS ANGELES - There could be a new owner riding the merry-go-round at Michael Jacksons fabled Neverland Ranch this summer.

A public auction of the 2,500-acre spread in central Californias wine country had been scheduled for next week after Jackson went into default on the $24.5 million he owes on the property. However, the auction was postponed until May 14 by mutual agreement of Jackson and his creditors, said Julie Wagner of Financial Title Co. of San Francisco, the firm that filed the default papers.

That allows us to refinance or sell the property, Jacksons attorney, L. Londell McMillan, told The Associated on Friday. He added that Jackson is looking at both options.

Jackson, who moved out of Neverland more than two years ago, bought the property in the bucolic rolling hills of Los Olivos, 150 miles north of Los Angeles, from real estate baron William Bone in 1988 and turned it into his personal playground. He brought in more than a dozen amusement park rides, including a merry-go-round, Ferris wheel and roller coaster and installed a zoo complete with flamingos, giraffes, elephants and orangutans.

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. I'd donate it to "Make-a-Wish" or "Ronald McDonald House"
I'd build a research hospital on the site, and I'd make it a play place for children with cancer,leukemia, and other life-threatening illnesses.

2. I wouldn't buy it since it will be impossible to ever get rid of the smell of children
