    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    I'm guessing we need a Katrina recap this year. That and more stuff on drought.
    I don't pretend to understand Brannigan's Law. I merely enforce it.

    tiny houses and maybe even more commune/dorm style living for those youngsters
    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.

    Yeah.....

    More planning director jobs that pay under $30,000 a year.

    Are they a protected class? Can we call them a 'use' and explicitly prohibit them?

    I'm sure we can can come up with some objective and quantifiable secondary impacts.

    Sounds like a great topic for a future Zoning Practice issue.

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    And us in the Great Lakes shed have a ton, but you can't have it. You can move here (residence and/or business), though.

    I have a feeling the big change of the sign code ruling won't be news. We're all done with that already.

    Hey.... I resemble that comment!

    So let's see, Truck dealerships, gun ranges, fishing boat repair facilities, boat access, bars, ranches, and a collection of Cabela's, Bass Pro Shop, Field and Stream, Gander Mountain, and Dicks surrounded by 10,000 square miles of wilderness.
