LPDS of course was approved unanimously again in the Planning Commission recently, and it is on the Agenda setting Commission meeting Thursday and up for vote at the February meeting. I found one comment from Planning Commissioner Biron interesting; he said that while LPDS had made great strides to meet with the opposition and make requested changes, in his opinion LPDS was "not there yet, as [Biron] feels the building is still too thematic." Now, to be clear, Biron is not opposed to LPDS (obviously, since there was unanimous approval), but I still find it interesting that he would imply that if LPDS would pull back on its Latin theme, it would have a better chance of passing. I know, I know, all opponents will deny this is relevant at all. But is it?

You are right. The truth is out. Eastsiders don't like Latin-themes. That's the opposition.

We'll also admit that it was an anonymous neighbor that tipped off the Oconee Co Sherriff's office prior to the anti-Hispanic-Home-Depot-raid. And it is a prominent Eastside neighborhood that is influencing state and federal legislation regarding illegal immigration.

The truth is out.
