PS - you hypocrites out there who like European charm, you're trying to kill it with such a stupid revision. Heck we'd like MORE little wineries to be able to serve sandwiches & cheese along with that great wine. Maybe the food industry ought to pipe up here?!

Mr. Rankin - tell us how we can help. This is just one more run-the-small-business-out-of-town ploy. We should all question who is really behind this "revision" and stand with our local vintners who add so much to our county. Tell us where to sign up for email alerts so we can write our reps & speak out at meetings - and WE WILL SPEAK UP.

Waaaaaaaaaay back when, we managed to have sex (well, it was really "near sex" as Matt puts it - touche), drugs and rock 'n roll. We didn't have riots, tear gas and out-of-town thugs alerted via "social media." Yes, that would be LIVE music (and no, not hip hop). Yes, that would be pot... and beer... not the poison that exists nowadays including synthetic (stroke-producing) pot. And yes, that would be near (highly fantasized about) sex, not rape. What happened? I'm gonna point to the entertainment/reality-TV culture that kids grow up with now, where respect is unheard of. I'll point to government-gone-wild while I'm at it, and I mean at the Federal level. If society (we the elders that is) and those who own the networks, the music labels, the lobbyists, etc., don't MODEL and PROMOTE respect, how do we expect kids to even know what it is???

I'm more interested in why moving to St. George is the best move he's ever made. LOL all those socialist efforts have led him to flee CA?!?

If you voted for Obama you deserve what you won't get. Yeah the chickens are comin' home to roost.

Good for you, Dr. Saunders. Sounds like a great idea!

Yes, sure, the Great Recession has affected us all. But the writer makes good points. Why aren't there refreshments and a sitting area somewhere amidst the show? Why is it that food/beverage establishments -- such an obvious draw for tourists/revenue whether for the art show or simply strolling the boulevard -- exist only at the far ends of said boulevard? Americans are so dumb about basic urban planning it's once again a no-brainer... It's a great suggestion AND civilized; those of us who walk/jog/bike Cabrillo would appreciate it too!

Good for you foofighter, for helping the "delusional" out with FACTS. While most of us have compassion for those with co-occurring mental illness and substance use, we also want to be safe in our streets. No easy answers here, but simplistic revisionist rants (Volok) ain't gonna help.

What would you rather see, Draxor? Something featuring the Kardashians? At least this film is ABOUT large moral issues, something of weight instead of flighty superficial Hollywood crap.

That said just rezone the area--which should offset property value losses. Consider exceptions to burdening sellers with an increased tax basis when they buy elsewhere. If the City and Cottage REALLY want to be good neighbors, this would go a long way toward walking the talk.
