Why wait a year and then the guy can re-apply? That makes no sense. So in a years time he miraculously will have had a change of heart and won't lie. He had his chance the first time. Once you loose credibility it takes a lot to gain it back! Actions speaks louder than words!!
I have no problem with someone putting in a night club in Craig. However, there is a problem when the applicant can't tell the truth. I also have a problem with the location of the club. It is less than 200 yards from an elementary school. The library is right behind the establishment. There is a liquor store that is right next to the club. How will the owner of the night club ensure customers will not bring in alcohol they purchase from the liquor store? This community is not a big city where urban sprawl is dominant. There has to be another location that would be better suited to meet the needs for a night club.
However, the biggest issue is with credibility of the owner. He can't be trusted. He should not be given a year then have a chance to re-apply. To me he had his chance. It is a huge responsibility having a liquor license. He clearly doesn't understand that responsibility. How can he be responsible with a liquor license if he can't tell the truth? if someone is over served at his bar and goes out and kills someone in a drunk driving accident, do we really think he will cooperate with authorities regarding the fatality? You be the judge?
I don't believe the city has much of a choice not to let this guy reapply. However, they, the City Council, does have the right to listen and take past accounts into their decision. I hope they make the right decision and deny this guy the license. The location of this place is not suited for a night club of this type. Not only that, the credibility of this guy is zero for lying.
I think Craig would be making a huge mistake by letting this guy obtain a liquor license. If he's given the apporval for a liquor license and he's lied about run ins with the law in the past, how can law enforcement know when this guy is telling the truth if they conduct a bar check or investigate something criminal stemming from the bar? It makes no sense to give this guy a liquor license. If he can't be truthful the first time around, that should say something about his character and how he may run his business.
The comment about the meat being eaten, the meat is not safe after the animal has been tranquilized for a period of time. So in all likelihood, the meat was destroyed.
No, one of His children just came home!!
I don't believe the school district would care if parents started taking their children to school rather than using the bus system. If you look at past articles in the CDP regarding budget cuts by the school district, there was a lot of controversy regarding some bus routes being eliminated.
To xrsareus: The one in Rifle is not located next to a hospital. It is located in a business district. The homes near it are several hundred yards away.
I believe all the editorial board is trying to do is promote our community. A lot of the talk here on the comment board is making Criag better. I believe that's what they are trying to do.
We need to advertise what we have versus what other communities have. We are not Steamboat. We don't have ski mountains and never will.
I agree Craig needs more "things" to make Craig more appealing. But, why not look at what we do have to offer. The Northwest part of Colorado come Sept thru Nov has a major boost to our economy from hunting. By promoting the things we have may produce the right thought process to take our community to the next level, whatever that level is.
For wethepeople. You need to re-read the article. Mr. Hume was reading a letter from Garfield County GOP Chairman Ron Rosener. You need to fully read the article before blaming our leaders for things they didn't say for themselves. Mr. Rosener is the person talking about, "taxing energy companies the University of Colorado will lower tuition costs." A direct quote as to what you said. This is how rumors get started. Not getting the facts straight!!
