---No building permits have been issued for the structure, and they are required by Adams County.
---no well or septic permits have been issued.
---The county has not inspected the place because it does not have a certified commercial building inspector.
But as the owners likely know, important for a town of less than 700
The downside of fighting the club's operation would be that if the town loses it would have to pay the club's attorney fees, he said. That could be as high as $500 per hour and could reach $600,000 or more.
Don't know if it's worth a ping.
Time to put on some Sinatra records.
They're life's losers. Let em swing and save the hassle, taxpayers bucks, etc...Who really cares?
Trash talking in the parking lot? What no pictures?
My ex-wife didn't need a fancy "club".
Why do you care? I'd really like to understand why people want to stop these things. I know it's easier to explain to children that certain people aren't right as rain when they are banished from view, but that ain't forever and maybe the visibility today is better left to a parent's explanations then to a dial-it-futureward strategy.
"On the local club's Web site, it says that single men need a sponsor for admission. Single women and couples apparently don't. "
Is gender discrimination at a public business legal? Didn't some bars get in trouble for having different prices for men and women?
Moral Absolutes Ping.
Free speeh? Free speech should be what it was intended to mean - the spoken and written word.
Isn't it amazing to what vile depths our country has sunk? So a club dedicated to fornication and adultery can open where ever it wants, in a regular neighborhood, breaking local rules, and already plans to fight, hoping to break the bank of the small town?
I know I'm bad, but I say gas can and lighter.
Or local people walking up and down in front of it with camberas and signs 24/7. Signs like "We don't want an adultery and fornication club in our town".
Ask yourself - why is illicit sex now holy and protected? What happened in the last couple of generations? And if anyone thinks that wild sexual behavior does not have terrible ramifications, such a person is eiather an adolescent in age or emotional maturity.
Freepmail me if you want on/off this pinglist.
I knew a couple that went to bars and whichever partner got picked up the other went home and watched. Weird folks but they are still partners. They own a used car lot. I guess you could say "Think Used"
Weeell.. A gas can and lighter might be an actual violation of the First Amendment. Let me see here. Yes I think it is! But protesting the place with cameras and signs might be an expression of your First Amendment rights. Yes - I think there's a real difference to your proposed solutions there...
Because they care about their lousy little rural Wisconsin town.
These guys may have picked the wrong site. Six or seven years ago Perrier, after being turned down for a water plant site west of Milwaukee (??) decided they'd head for the sticks where no one could afford the legal fees. They picked New Haven, where the citizens didn't want a water plant. After a fight of several years, which included a recall of several town officials which the New York Times (??) addressed as anarchy, Perrier gave up their plans and built in Michigan.
Wow - they own the whole (lousy rural Wisconsin) town? Simple then - just don't go there it will shrivel up and die. I don't like VHS - gone! Off the channel rotation even. Maybe it's still care maybe I don't care.
Classy. : )
I think all of these kind of places should be built right beside the homes of folks who think as you do.
Property is the root of all freedoms. I don't own the town I live in, only a single plot within it. That one's mine. So that's all I control. Should such an enterprise move nearby, values will have declined a decade in advance such that I will have moved. Just like changing the channel.

But I thought enterprises like this were victimless??
