  • Valor7: What I tried to say is that the actual money would not be there that quick. But a loan against that would work if they are willing to do that.

  • Lepard LLC: Why so long before it comes online? 911 took out a loan or bond with the known guarantee payment and began building..

  • Valor7: Actually no it is not, a dependable Revenue stream will not come on line until the 4th quarter of 2017 so 2018 budget will be up in the air, not quite sure what they will have. By 2019 budget all will be well.

  • Valor7: I could have worded that better, we talked details, options, the pros and cons of each, in  order to arrive at the best ballot language to present to the voters. Hope that makes this clearer.

  • Valor7: sorry about the typos still working with just one arm in action
    April 13, 2016, 01:10:42 PM
  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

  • Lepard LLC: Gene Newkirk Rick I have waited for a Sheriff to bring it to me on what he wanted. I have pushed Mr long for a while to get it to me. He told me he was close to having or done. Now hopefully the people will get to decide on it. I spoke with Steve about this a few times.

The Truth About Strip Clubs
What Strip Club Owners Don't Want You to Know
There are so many misconceptions held by people about strippers.  Below are some demystifying facts about the reality of this profession.

 
Working as a Stripper Is Not:
Safe - Murder and violence happen on a regular basis in and around strip clubs, and seemingly at an increasing rate of frequency.  Patrons are often sexual predators who build obsessions on the dancers.  Gang members, drug dealers, pimps, and other criminals also frequent strip clubs.  Some of these criminals are the employees themselves, and all strip club owners are involved in some kind of criminal activity.  The safety of the dancers is not a high priority.
Healthy - Many strippers suffer from drug addiction, alcoholism, abusive relationships, and dangerous lifestyles.  The stresses of the job bring on many physical and emotional problems.  Depression and anxiety disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorder are common among dancers.  Years of dancing cause back, feet, and leg injuries, some totally disabling.  And there is no retirement plan for dancers.
Glamorous - The day-to-day reality of acting friendly to perverts and degenerates is disgusting.  Being assaulted in the lap dance booth is traumatic and utterly humiliating.  Being regularly hit on by creepy guys making filthy comments at you  is not at all glamorous.  Being physically attacked by mentally unbalanced dancers is also unglamorous.
Good for your self-esteem - Being treated like an object day after day by your boss and clients has a deleterious effect on your self-esteem.  This effect snowballs as the years go on.  Many dancers suffer from feelings of worthlessness and hopelessness. 
Worth the money - I have known strippers who have made obscene amounts of money and they are no happier for it.  There is also a tendency among dancers to squander the money on drugs, excessive shopping, gambling, etc.
Empowering for women - On the contrary, the job is degrading to women.  To be admired in this way is not true esteem and dignity, it's exploitation.  Its a conterfeit form of love and attention that weakens your sense of self.
Without a price - Being constantly ogled, groped, lusted after, catcalled, insulted, pinched, and used for sex comes at a very steep price.  I witnessed many dancers (including myself) leave the bar in tears due to an abusive patron or employer.
A Victimless Crime - Even if you don't feel harmed by it, think of the harm you are causing to the wives and children of the men who come to see you, or even to the men themselves.  Think of the dancers who do end up dead or emotionally scarred as a result of the job.  Think of the damage being done to the community surrounding your workplace.
Authentic Feminism - Feminism was never about the legalized pimping that is the porn and strip club industry.  Feminism was never about making mafiosi rich by exploiting women's sexuality.  Don't forget who takes home the most money in this business.
Go to http://www.ccv.org/downloads/pdf/David_Sherman_testimony.pdf for a former strip club manager's testimony of his experience in the industry.
Who Are Strippers?
So many factors bring a woman to the decision to become a stripper.  The most overriding factor seems to be early childhood abuse.  The media portrayals of strippers are far from accurate.  They are not all airheaded Barbie Dolls who smile constantly.  They are college students, struggling artists, struggling actresses, professionally trained dancers, single mothers, abuse survivors, writers, wives, musicians, teachers, teenage runaways, performance artists, singers, nurses, athletes, film makers, students.  They come from all walks of life.  Some, believe it or not, are Christian.  Please don't judge or stereotype these women.  Instead, pray for them and support one of the many ministries in the links section active in helping sex workers find a new life in Christ. 

 
Reasons Why Women Become Strippers
The following are reasons that I have heard from dancers as to why they chose this line of work:
It beats the slavery of office work
To supplement her income as a nurse/hairstylist/etc.
To support herself while she persues her acting career
This job is only temporary until she makes it big in show biz
Because she's a single mother and this pays the bills
She's a teenage runaway and she doesn't know what else to do
To support her musician and future rock-star boyfriend
To support her drug habit
To support her boyfriend's drug habit
To sell drugs in the club
To find clients for prostitution
Her boyfriend/husband got her into it
She loves her job and considers it a valid career choice (admittedly, the only dancer I heard make this claim was abusing painkillers, was sexually abused as a child, and was struggling with mental health problems)
She's pretty and she's always seen herself as a sex object - what else would she do?
The money's great and she's addicted to the money
She has no job skills or higher education
She's initially attracted to the glamour of the job
This is her foray into pornography and "feature dancing"
This supplements her income as a porn actress
She can't find another job
She identifies with the "demi-monde" and the stripper lifestyle
She's not a stripper, she's a "performance artist"
She's not a stripper, she's a "burlesque queen"
