Dean voted against the initial proposed ord. Has he since changed his stance on the issue? Is there any way we can postpone this ordinance til after the next election?
Even thought the ordinance is only pertaining to "new establishments" it does not specify when the date for a "new establishment" begins. It also opens the door for down the road when a "new establishment" is forced to close at midnight and existing establishments are able to stay open, it will create turmoil within the industry and the city will implement a fair ordinance that will require new & old establishments to close early. If you speak to any of the owners of these existing establishments you will see that they are clearly opposed to this current city ordinance.
I can assure you San Francisco will take the Conde Nast #1 Spot if this ordinance passes.
Im pretty sure most of the people who bought houses in the surrounding neighborhoods knew these "Late Night Areas" were within walking distance. It is absurd that any new bar/restaurant will have to adhere to the guidelines of this new ordinance. If this passes I can assure you that more people will choose to drink downtown until midnight, and drive to Mt. Pleasant or West Ash. to continue drinking.
This may just be a publicity stunt to show the rest of the country we are actively not trying to become a "Myrtle Beach Scene" after the shootings this weekend. I hope that the actions of a few in a neighboring community do not affect the fun for others.
If a University offers you a scholarship to play sports, you should play for the minimum amount of time and treat it like a job. #7 should be playing unless he has suffered a severe injury. I am not even a S. Carolina fan but I truly believe he should be required to play pending a through physical exam.
He wouldn't be getting 10 million dollar offers out of high school. U.S.C. provided him with the national stage to showcase his talents. He owes something to the organization that gave him a chance.
