Unfortunately the one that I was hoping was true regarding Cracker Barrel is debunked. It seems that they have no interest in the south end of town and prefer a RT13 north location. This is where we can as a community if we contact them may be able to help.

It certainly seemed like we had our own version of fight club happening over the weekend. I was live updating the events on my twitter account so if you haven't already follow my feed for the up to date status on breaking news stories such as these. Azul moved from one location and obviously trouble followed. I am not blaming Walter as I know he just wants a cool place for kids to hang out and dance, I just don't know how he is going to be able to make it work when stuff like this keeps making the news.

As If anyone wants to deal with this drama any longer, the old station 16 building is on the agenda for the work session this afternoon. Can we instead make a list of people who won't be offering ideas on this building? Say all the best people in revitalizing Downtown and have the money to make it happen.
This is a beautiful building and It is so sad that because of three vindictive people it will sit and rot to the ground.

Laura Mitchell and the Citizens of Salisbury sent a clear message to the Council Majority that people have woken up to the games being played. Over 2300 people signed the petition and while it may have been short of forcing a referendum the very fact that more people signed the petition against the Council majority than actually voted in the last election cycle speaks volumes to the dissatisfaction people have
The destruction that these misfits have caused is beyond words. They have driven the Gillis group out of Downtown, made a charter change after 15 minutes of discussion because Jim hurt their feelings, backed out of several agreements that have cost us money, destroyed Urban Salisbury and tried to cut PAC14 off. This latest Charter change is just another in a long line of their destruction.
We may have fallen short in signatures but let me assure you and the supporters of the Trio of destruction, this battle was lost but the war has just begun.

The latest news on the return of the Salisbury Fireworks at a great location and a fun filled event with vendors lining the streets is just the latest example of people who step up and get things done versus the complaining group holding the City back.
It has been embarrassing for a City our size to not have it's own fireworks show. The people that hold the City back and by that I mean the Debbie Campbell, Terry Cohen followers would never actually step up and get something like this done because they have no drive except to say no. I thought Debbie had a friend in Delmar who for the past 4 years was going to get this done? O well fitting that Mike Dunn actually did . I also saw another very good man involved in this event in the person of Bill Gordy, who will be making sure everything is done safely for the public.
This is what the good people in this community do, they come together and move things forward. The idiots in this community just sit back and complain and complain. This City is fighting back and we will win.
