After reading the articles associated with this newest business endeavor, and the comments of the readers, I see everyone's point of view, but I would be willing to bet, more time will be spent trying to block this business, than it will actually remain open. A Night Club, in a small town, allure at first, business will be closed within a year….. just watch.

@ RebelgirlMy opinion, would be that, unless you live in a tent, you have made the choice not to live with wildlife. Sad, a bear dies. However, the poor little bear, would have either intentionally, or not, harmed a human being in it's quest for food, as humanity is no longer a percieved danger.
Plant a tree, then eat a bullet, if in fact you really find nature to be more important. But, I suspect you won't, because that would be pointless, much as arguing over a dead menacing bear. That, my dear, is my opinion.

@ Brian, you could quite possibly be, my new personal hero.
@ Rebelgirl, if you are too stupid to hit spell check, you are not allowed to call people ignorant. It's a T not a D….. ignorant, much?

Instant gratification is not going to fix this problem. When you compare organizations such as the VNA, Dental Coalition and the Budget Center, you really are in essence comparing apples to oranges. Although, they do, in their own way provide various services to our community, they are not in positions to do ongoing research for the hopeful prevention, and total eradication of diseases such as Cancer,
When you look at the big picture, the work that the American Cancer Society does to bring awareness to this awful disease and the money that they use to fund research, you are really only cheating yourself by being so short sided.
You say that yes, Cancer, and Cancer related deaths are sad, but yet instead of funding the organization that is actively trying to find cures, and newer more effective medications, you instead caution others to donate to organizations that would benefit them in the now, as opposed to the future. Instead of trying to make sure that your children, grandchildren, mother, brother, husband, niece (I could go on) are never troubled with, or at least have a fighting chance at success if Heaven forbid they are ever diagnosed, you are promoting that one donate only their money, where the chances of getting it back and more are greater.
That is not charity!!! That is like giving your neighbor a gift for the holidays with the expectation that they will give you one in return.
And to answer your question, the 100K that was raised two years ago would not have gone nearly as far in our area to benefit Cancer Awareness as you think. It may have helped some to offset medical expenses, but would have done nothing to further research for this disease.
I don't have to change your mind, but I refuse to allow someone with such a limited amount of knowledge on the subject to change the mindset of others.
