    Here's a postcard of what "Barton's" looked like a long time ago...

    The only house you can see is on the top of that hill.

    Now, let me see...If we were going to build (or rent) a home...I think right beside this distillery would be a perfect place to live?

    Bettye Jo,

    I see the same thing out west...folks build/move in next door to an airport, and after enough of them gain a big enough voice, they try and close it down...substitute the word airport for distillery etc...you get my drift...

    I have never understood this mentality...

    I don't think I want to understand this mentality...

    In my neighborhood it's Wrigley Field which, after all, was built in 1914, so you knew there was a major league ballpark in the neighborhood before you moved here.

    Chuck,

    Tip: the "*" doesn't render the term less offensive.

    "Boy's Town" is part of Wrigleyville, but Wrigleyville is a pretty large area and Boy's Town is a small part of it.

    Though it is a hoot on Halloween.

    You familiar with the plan a while back to move John Wayne International (O.C./Santa Ana) Airport to the old El Toro Marine Base Doug? From everything I have heard, read and learned it would have been a very positive move in many aspects such as allowing a larger airport with more air traffic, good freeway access for more people and in what not too long before was already a flight pattern. But just like you mentioned, somehow the citizens killed the plan and now the area is actually in the planning stages to become a "Great Park" http://ocgp.org/ . Since I work for a large engineering/construction/architecture/planning/design/whatever/else/you/ want to/call us/firm I always get a kick out of plans like this and seeing how the company sells their client on a master plan http://www.ocgp.org/civica/filebank/...sp?BlobID=2650 this one would make you think it is going to be a small county all itself, job well done selling it.... Now let's see it happen! Mind you, if you care to actually look at this, that this is right in the middle of what is essentially desert land, and this talks about "fly fishing in a stream" and a "...great lake"?

    ... So we don't want an airport bringing in commerce, but we'll put in a great park with a stream and lake that will require an enormous amount of water (essentially a precious resource round these parts) to create not to mention maintain?!?! Good thinking; the sheople follow again.

    Hey if you need a big engineering job edsigned and constructed come over to Massachusetts. Those contractors working on Boston's Big Dig did a fantastic job. $15 BILLION over budget and the thing leaks water. Killed some poor lady driving through the tunnel. Then the figured out there may be a design problem. Parts have been shut down for months. What a joke.

    On the upside I have a friend driving a truck for one fo the contractors. $104,000 per year on a 50 hour work week. Not too shabby. Maybe he should be buying all the booze.

    Chris
