    Barton Lawsuit

    Here's something to watch...
    Local distiller sued for emissions, odors
    As a Kentuckian I consider it my civic duty to smoke, drink Bourbon and bet the ponies. It's a tuff job, but I persevere.

    Whatever they do, I hope they don't eliminate that "smell of prosperity" as Chuck describes it in his book. The yeasty aroma that wafts through town during the mashing is something I look forward to every time I go to the Festival.

    I wonder if this Dallas guy has ever drank any bourbon? If so, he helped the "problem" along. Also, it would seem that Dallas was born in 1960 or 1961 and Barton has been there at least back to 1946 and probably longer. It would seem Dallas moved into what he deems the problem area. I work in a Steel mill and people say I breathe in stuff just as bad as 2nd hand smoke. The only difference is, working in the mill makes me money, someone else smoking cigarettes costs them money. If this "soot" was caused by some coal fired power plant in China (which is currently happening to the West coast of the US) not a thing would be done about it!

    2nd Ammendment Rights

    Surprised to hear someone from Kentucky complain about people excercising their second ammendment rights. Almost the strangest thing I've heard all week.

    So you're up for having people you don't know show up in your yard armed to the teeth?

    Well don't take it to extremes. If they are actually on your property that could be a problem, but what are the odds. If they are not and you are just concerned about having more neighbors instead of unoccupied land that's quite another.

    You should be glad that you don't live in Eastern Massachusetts like I do. Your second ammendment rights only apply as long as the local police chief says that they do.

    This was always Fun

    It is a trespassing/hunting issue, other than that, no problem.

    Trespassing by hunters and ATVers seems to be a big problem in Nelson County and even though most of the aggrieved property owners know who the trespassers are, there doesn't seem to be much they or the local law men can do about it. I don't know if this is a problem in similar semi-rural areas (although Nelson County likes to think of itself as rural, its population density is almost that of a suburb), maybe it's a problem everywhere, but I know it's a problem there from assorted people.

    I grew up in the kind of area which you are talking about Chuck. Yes, I do think that is just part of living "in the country".
