    Downtown Projects & Developments

    Great vibe in downtown tonight. Nice weather helped, but still I was impressed. Have not been to Rockers on Saturday, but great band and good crowd. We are on a roll!

    Spartanburg City Council

    I would like to see Horne on City Council for at least one term before he is mayor.

    I think this is great! But not sure why Spartanburg has such long traffic arms. Even if future left only turn signals are the reason, many throughout downtown are way too long. When you look down Church Street all you see are these huge traffic arms that seem like they belong on a six lane highway. Do not see this in other cities and these poles can not be cheap.

    Recently heard that Becky sold the NuWay. Also, that there will be a goodbye bash later this month. Does anyone have more information? Thanks.

    My wife and I ate at Nacho Taco tonight in the old Refuel Wine Bar location. Very disappointed and probably will not go back. Broncos and Monterrey's much better. Great space but......

    Spartan, have you thought about an H-J letter to the editor? Or better yet an op-ed.

    Bass Pro Shops eyeing Spartanburg

    Lease on their current building (Cabela's). But I have no idea.

    Bass Pro Shops eyeing Spartanburg

    Heard that Bass Pro Shop prefers a highway 101 location because easier access compared to busy Woodruff Rd. Not a good place to pull your bass boat in on the way to the lake or coast. Cabela's may have a lease??

    From Spartanburg H-J: A Greer-based Mexican eatery is bringing its flaming fajitas and fresh guacamole to the east side of Spartanburg. California Style Guacamole Mexican Grill plans to open its first Spartanburg restaurant at 1071 Fernwood Glendale Road. The restaurant's owners will lease the 7,600-square-foot building, which was formerly occupied by the Four Seasons Restaurant and later Roots Deep South Eats.

    It is my understanding that the Deli's main owner is Elizabeth Evans. She is not connected with the Local Hiker or Scoops. But she has a lot of experience and owned Elizabeth's downtown and across from Converse College a few years ago.

    A little confused...Main and Liberty is where the Bishop Furniture building is. Denny's has land/park on another corner.

    D7 Exclusion

    I actually did vote against the D7 bond issue and have publicly criticized the administration for wasting money. But I think that the majority of teachers are excellent and for the most part is a strong academic district. My son went to Pine Street, McCracken, and Spartanburg H.S. Our experience has been great. Not sure what you mean by exclusion. Being VERY middle class I am happy that most rich folks in D7 send their kids to public school. We lived in the (close in) outskirts of Atlanta where the vast majority send their kids to private schools. I grew up in NC where my hometown public schools are now average at best, partly because upper/middle class folks are also opting for private schools. I guess I do not understand why this specific negative topic warrants a separate Urban Planet topic.
