Not out of the woods yet

The city of Elkton should be commended for passing such a strict and effective adult business ordinance. Let's all hope it holds up in court.

Even with the passing of the ordinance, the cat is out of the bag and the rest of the county is wide open for adult business.

Hey, wait; there is the 1986 law that bans pornography. That should protect us. Yeah, and if you believe that then I have some swampland to sell you in Arizona...

It is time we stop posturing like this county could stop an adult business from coming in. Someone with deep pockets and a good lawyer would go through the 1986 law like me at all-you-can-eat shrimp at Red Lobster.

We need to have the county to finally either put up some laws concerning zoning like Elkton did, or to designate areas or "business districts" that could keep the adult businesses in only certain areas of the county � like next door to the chicken egg plant in South Todd.

Then we could have laws in place inside those areas that would limit the where, when and how much when it comes to adult businesses.

The real scary part in all this is that if someone is really smart they will get near some lotto stores in Guthrie or near Exit 1 in Trenton and we all will wear a black eye because that will be the first thing people coming into that end of the county will see when they visit.

Just ask people in Upton, Ky., what that's like. Because nothing says, "Welcome to Todd County" like a gigantic �XXX� sign!!!
