    I have been overweight "fat"

    and am now in my preferred weight zone.

    I can personally say that I am a MUCH MORE effective worker

    now, than when I was overweight.

    A person in the recommended weight zone can absolutely

    perform physical agility requirements than an overweight person.

    Perhaps, it would be most fair for the more active physically
    fit person to receive a bit higher pay if their performance
    PROVES AS SUCH that they are able to work more

    actively and productively.

    that could possibly be an inspiration factor to the overweight
    employee to lose weight.

    It really is NOT FAIR to pay one person the same as another
    for not doing EQUALLY QUALITY of work????!!

    So, you left the X Rated Adult Movies?

    They are legal, but county commissioners are

    in process of creating county regulations/laws to allow

    bath salts in the county but not X rated movies. Hmmmmmmm

    I had FOUR MOVIES TO GO Video Stores

    in the Four Corners area (Durango,Co., Fort Morgan, Co. Cortez,Co,

    and Farmington,NM) in the 1980s.

    My shops had the SAME FORMAT as the one here in Victoria,

    a large family general audience movie selection,

    and a small discreet Adult X movie section.

    The Movies To Go thrived and prospered greatly

    in all of those locations, with THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS

    OF CUSTOMERS!

    NEVER NEVER ONE COMPLAINT!

    the shops were ALL LOCATED NEAR/ADJACENT TO

    HIGH END million dollar mountain homes.

    Very strange indeed, that some residents of Lakeview homes in

    the under $500,000 range cannot tolerate a similar business

    as the million dollar home folks in Colorado and New Mexico!!!

    Here is a copy of a letter to Editor from wife of a local long time rancher.
    The author to the letter is 91 yrs. old. Church going lady:

    * Originally published December 16, 2011 at 6:39 p.m., updated December 16, 2011 at 6:50 p.m.

    Editor, the Advocate:

    Some are trying to deprive us of freedoms given by the U.S. Constitution - the right to earn an honest living in an honest manner.

    I have known Carole Luster all her life. She comes from a long line - on both sides of her family - of hard-working, honest Christians. After a failed marriage, she has supported herself and raised two handsome sons by dint of her imagination, entrepreneurship and a lot of hard work. She instilled the hard work ethic in her sons.

    In addition to the movie shop, she makes seasonal costumes, has old-fashioned costumes for men, women and children in which you can have your photo made, and she sells real estate.

    Debra, have you been in Carole's movie shop? There, you will see only family movies. The adult movies are but a small part of the total and are in an isolated, closed-off room, and only adults are allowed in there. I have been there when she told three young men that she would I.D. them if they wanted to go into that room. They left shortly after she told them that.

    By the way, for X-rated, read the Song of Solomon in the Bible. Would you also have the Bible abolished?

    The crux of this matter is:

    Does the County have the right to placate a small interest group

    by enacting a new set of rules for existing businesses?

    My Movies To Go Video Shop is merely a little country Video Shop,

    very similar to most other "traditional"Video Stores, as described

    The problem is, a PRIVATE INTEREST GROUP

    is attempting to circumvent the EXISTING REGULATIONS

    to appease THEIR PERSONAL AGENDAS!

    ("MAINTAINING PROPERTY VALUES)

    When it became apparent that was their motive, they switched

    gears to make it seem "FOR THE GOOD OF THE COUNTY)

    To be accused of being an EROTIC SEX SHOP

    IS SO FAR FROM THE HONEST TRUTH, IT IS THE HEIGHT OF

    STUPIDITY TO EVEN INSUATE THAT!

    The Video Shop has been in business over 9 months now.

    there has been NO INCREASE IN SEX CRIMES, PERVERTS IN THE

    AREA, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF SUGGESTED INSINUATIONS!!

    County Commissioners, IT IS TIME TO STOP CALLING MOVIES

    TO GO AN EROTIC SEX SHOP!!!!!

    that goes FOR YOU TOO RESIDENTS OF LAKEVIEW PRIVATE INTEREST GROUP.

    The Movie Shop will continue. WITH HEARTFELT THANKS

    to all the wonderful supportive families, friends and customers

    that patronize us, and offer your continued support in light

    of this unfair situation.

    video stores by stillthewaywardwind!
