@ Grady Allen III
well said & numerous points well made!
The title is misleading; apparently, ‘some’ refers to three residents. Ruth Brennan is not bothered with the type of business; she’s concerned with traffic issues. Mayor Page “truly believes in business and property rights.”
Jo Ann Fisher is afraid to look out of her window; someone may stroll out ready to pop and lock on her neighborhood. James Scott (aka Paul Revere) is concerned because “churches are steps away”. He is also perturbed that homes were built (Earl’s Court). This brings us to Ryan Bretone. He’s concerned with the physical proximity to the school.
I find it interesting that no one appears concerned about the liquor store across the street from the school. Personally, I am horrified at how many future alcoholics we must be raising! Bottles Beverage Superstore is one of the first sights the kids see as they walk out the front door of school. Egad! I can envision babies crawling out of their cribs to frequent Vickery’s BAR & Grill, Shem Creek BAR & Grill, Red’s BAR & Grill, Art’s Bar & Grill, Shelter Kitchen & BAR, Finz BAR & Grill and Red Drum just to name a few. I’m betting some of our good church-going folks have had a drink or two and may be packing a pistol under their seat. Odd, no one is concerned about drunk drivers running you over as you come out of church or school?
I think the writer, Ms. O’Leary, was pulling our leg when she came up with her heading. I’d like to suggest a new one: Ryan Bretone Creates New Drama Club in Old Village.
