Ok… It was like this big “Roseanne Roseannadanna” moment for me this evening, as The Ricker guy assured me that the letter was not directed to me. It was more like a blanket form letter to those swarthy like guys who sell Phoney Ran Bans and do surveillance on the main gate so they can slip the odd IED through and plant it on the General’s Parade Ground. OK the way he explained it is far far better than the way they wrote it in the letter.
What a great showing for a Planning Commission Meeting. Good crowd for three good discussions.
While I’ve never considered much of what Greg Mendoza has ever pondered all that…, Tho….he did come up with a brilliant solution to the continuing problem with the parking Ordinance and the old downtown….. Simple…. exempt the area. Duh!! Brilliant.
So they approved a church in the old 99cent store by the “Visitor Center.” Seem like all that attended from the church were a good group of folks. A fine group of Baptists. Two fellows appear to be the pastors, really well spoken and they even gave me a prayer or two, and we all know how much I need all the prayers I can get sent that way. Lord? I got Baptists praying for me now.
Lori Herbel is just some kind of strange person. Detached from reality, she was three meetings off the subject at hand. While she is stuck on stupid and that fact she thinks my championing a change in the peddling and vending rules in 29 has something to do with me trying to shut her piece of shit Farmers Market down. I don’t have to do anything in that department. Her haggish ways seem to be doing that and she does not need anyone else’s help.
Before she could stand up and schlepped her crazy psychobabble about, on how she was in essence was going to pull her Farmers Market and Skinny Ass out of town if the commission allowed me to sell hot dogs, I spoke first and blew her whole speech, I made it clear to the commission that it was not my intent to do business anywhere near or on any day her damned Fleabag Market was running.
She made it appear as if she was… well…. a complete nut case. Obviously she runs on emotion and hysteria. What was plain to any observer was that I represented reason and common sense. She did not.
Besides Herbel herself talking, Gerry Hagerman (a woman that I fought long and hard for on several occasions and all you old timers remember those years) spoke for Herbel and against small business entrepreneurship. I got to tell you I am really disappointed in Gerry’s lack of loyalty and compassion for local business.
Larry Briggs, Grove Crank, John Kidwell and another really nice fellow (I forgot to get his name, I hope he writes) spoke in favor of allowing licensed and regulated peddling and vending. Grove told Herbel that he took her warning as a threat, and in essence, as far as he was concerned he would have changed the ordinance right then and there and told her to hit the road and take her Farmers Market with her. Grove is back boys and girls…. looking healthy and ready to take on the world.
The Commissioners seemed to want to see the rule change to allow vending, peddling and hawking in a regulated and licensed fashion. It seems that we are now just hashing out the details.
Only two old gals with some kind of axe to grind seemed willing to take the negative argument and run with it. Too bad.
