Wow, this is a totally shocking result. Wait, I mean "predictable," not "shocking." If BSA wants to stick to their guns on this issue, more power to them; they're a private organization and they need to do right by the actual members.
I was a scout for 10 years and worked at scout camp for three, and I'm troubled by this new holy-roller version of the BSA. It pains me to think that I can't send my son to learn about knot-tying, camping, hiking, first aid, and all the other self-reliance skills that BSA is built on without subjecting him to a bunch of gay-bashing and bible-thumping. But if that's what BSA is all about now, then that's what they're about. They've made their lean-to and will have to lie under it.
"We had this image of a tandem bike, with a man and woman riding this old school tandem bike with early 1900s clothing on this highwire, and it just sort of hit,"
These youth organizations are already splintering into different groups. There is a religious based scout like organization which is rapidly growing, a conservative scouting movement and, I would guess somewhere, a liberal program of some sort. The contest which matters will end up between the traditional scouting movement and the religious youth programs. The big mega churches prefer to do everything in house and on their own budgets.
Oh, Sark, you should know by now that the everything after the first five graphs was nothing more than a reason to write the first five.
Well if anyone should appreciate second chances it would be you...Tara.
You got hired down here after that hideously racist and homophobic cartoon you released back in NC.
But no,it's everyone against you based on your " reverse racism conservative persecution complex".
Poor Tara. You simply radiate oppression, how do you survive the day?
It started in Italy. Thus the name. http://www.festivaldispoleto.com/
What would we have lost if Chris has cut out the first five paragraphs of this column?
Will any of them make a Salted Caramel Whiskey? That's what I want.
"But, vendors, make it affordable, please."
The local retailers sell beer at a small mark-up, which is fairly reasonable compared to the distribution mark-up. The local guys also carry more varieties of local and general craft beer, which is something Sunoco will never have.
"Our local beer breweries have not done that yet. So why go to the brewery, and then pay the same as at a grocery store?"
This is not a fault of the brewery. You need to research state law.
(5) the brewery must sell the beer at the licensed premises at a price approximating retail prices generally charged for identical beverages in the county where the licensed premises are located; and
The breweries would love to sell at a discounted rate, but are required to match retail prices. You can thank the large distributors for lobbying in a way to get that in the books. Anyways, the HB 4572 was a game changer for breweries in the state and very beneficial to the craft beer market.
"I just hope those distilleries on King have better success rate than all the micro breweries we had downtown many years ago. Not many have survived."
Huh? Palmetto Brewery is in the peninsula (in the ghettoish part) and has been thriving since 1993. Southend, despite the fact that their beer isn't a favorite of craft beer lovers, has been pumping out brew for well over a decade. Are you talking about T-Bonez brewpub thing? Most would agree that if you don't make good beer, it will be hard to survive as a brewery. In the ever growing craft beer market, there is plenty of room for more brewpubs in this area. I have no doubt they will survive if the product is good. Just like these distilleries.
Can't wait for this piece of shit to come down.
I talked to an employee at a local Sunoco, and he said each station now has a "beer supervisor" who's main job is to keep the growler stations full and fresh. He gets a few more bucks to be trained and in charge, and takes the responsibilities away from other managers. This will make for consistency in quality and, as you said, sanitizing of growler bottles which can grow some unique cultures when left out in the sun. In any case, buy local and support locals whenever possible. But, vendors, make it affordable, please.
"Sunoco and their Craft Brew stations"
Or you could support local businesses that sell these same beers in growler and bottle form. The local guys also do a better job of sanitizing your bottles and keeping their beer lines clean. Just a tip if you prefer buying local and getting better quality.
"Regulation and censorship are two entirely different concepts."
Is censorship not a way to regulate the things that we watch?
Control or supervise (something, esp. a company or business activity) by means of rules and regulations
Within censorship lies rules the broadcasters must adhere to. The reason the rules are there is to regulate content broadcasted. Maybe we are just off subject at this point.
Any bar owner who tries to have his bouncers do anything but cursory monitoring of the sidewalk is asking for a law suit. Sorry, but we need cops with authority to make obnoxious drunks (redundant ) move on. Simply publish pictures of those who do make a scene, and post it outside the bar on the "do not return" list.
If they are able to sell stuff directly from the distillery, then I hope they pass on the savings of having to go through a middle man to the customer. Our local beer breweries have not done that yet. So why go to the brewery, and then pay the same as at a grocery store? Locals who bother to travel to a local maker should receive some sort of reward. I just hope those distilleries on King have better success rate than all the micro breweries we had downtown many years ago. Not many have survived.
The Beach Co. is in business to make a profit. Good for them. But allowing any sort of zoning that would allow them to make changes in that area, without knowing exactly what they would replace it with, is stupid. They are not concerned about who they force to move out and find affordable rent somewhere else (not downtown). I can guarantee any apartment they rent will be almost double what they pay now. Sure, a small percentage will be for those with limited income, but the majority will be out of towners who are looking for a fancy view and in close proximity to the city. Forget most students, nurses, etc... that work nearby. They will have to go up the peninsula to find housing. More cars...lots of cars....for the limited parking we have in that area. Look at the neck for future housing.
As a Texan I believe that if you cannot smoke a brisket, then you cannot BBQ. Texans believe that it shouldn't matter if the ribs have sauce on them or not. The meat should speak for it's self.
Gosh, you guys have got it all wrong.
Let the folks who sent complaints to the FCC, I ...
1. Fondly remember the documentary Roots.
2. Am offended that the FCC allows the Name of God and Jesus to go unbleeped while other cuss words are blocked.
3. Do not want nudity on broadcast radio.
4. Am afraid that our children will take off their clothes at school.
5. Believe that this proposal is bullshit.
Do they have a Charleston Festival in Italy? Cause if not, I am going to boycott Spoleto until they do..
