    Stopped by the new downtown Peddler a few days ago to grab a beer. What I saw was really nice. The bar area was comfortable and welcoming with a fireplace. Did not venture upstairs to where most of the dinning seating is. Good addition to downtown.

    Probably 'user error' but, had what happened? IMO Todd Horne should have run for council before mayor.

    Heard rumor from two different sources. The corner of East Main and Pine Street is going to be redeveloped. That the Village Inn and Town Square building will be demolished. Has anyone else heard something? Maybe Mellow Mushroom would consider-relocating to the old Wild Ace pizza spot. (historic C&S building). Or move across the street to new United Community Bank building.

    Eat dinner last night at Bar1884 for the first time. Food was great, but service was fair. Lot of folks downtown!

    The lot where this small development was planned is still vacant on Avant Street; one block from Converse College. There is a new rezoning request for most of the entire block from the Marathon Gas Station on East Main to Garrett Street; including a number of lots on Oakwood Avenue. The request is from Ray Billings , J. Hiltabiddle Construction to change the zoning to R-6 POD s. They plan on building a townhome development. Not sure if this is the same group who planned the original units.

    What about a stadium that can convert from baseball to soccer/lacrosse.

    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??
