LETTER: Gary Corbin writes protesting P&Z Story

Asks why Kentucky State Senator David Williams support for those against re-zoning for cleaners not included in original story published immediately following P&Z meeting
Mr. Waggener

I feel that your article on the web tells only biased portions of the actual P&Z meeting Thursday night.

The owners of C&S Dry Cleaners issued the letter to the P & Z committee to ensure them AND the city council that regardless of any decisions for or against, from either committee or council "THE BUSINESS WILL CONTINUE AS PLANNED". The integrity of the co-owners and the business have been slandered by a few people and we are tired of listening to it. This issue reached a new level Thursday night when it was pointed out {FOR PUBLIC RECORD} that senator David L. Williams, Rep. had solicited the Planning and Zoning committee by telephone in protest of our intended business. We understand the Mr. Williams is the ex-brother-in-law of morris grubbs.

Mr. Waggener why was this fact not included in your article? Why is a senator getting involved in this issue? A war is going on, people are getting killed every day to preserve our freedoms in this country and this senator aiding in a fight against our business.

This issue is a long way from over Mr. Waggener. The co-owners would like to see all of the facts brought to the table and printed for the public not just a select few.


Gary Corbin

Editor's note: We adamantly disagree that the article was biased. It is true that it was not gavel to gavel coverage.

Thanks for sending the additional information on Senator Williams.

Quite frankly, however, I had expected a protest over our failure to include the bit on Kentucky State Senate President David Williams activity to come from the other side, considering the regard a large number of people in Adair County have for Senator Williams.

You are right about the article not being totally complete. That is in the public record, and it was also available in the public hearings, which we have freely publicized, as have other media in the community.

We have also published articles submitted to us by Dr. Smith and by you.
