The ‘REAL’ reason
We all know that this is NOT a ’safety’ issue. It IS a ‘not in my backyard’ issue. There’s a real reason the residents of Beavercreek feel this way; they have well-founded concerns about the kind of traffic that will be introduced to the city. Those concerns aren’t necessarily racist, they are realistic based on statistics. Several once-pristine Dayton neighborhoods turned into Crackville when majority black populations moved in. Housing foreclosure rates soar among these groups. There are dramatically higher rates of violent and petty crime, high school dropouts, unwed mothers, hard drug abuse, etc. in black populations. We CAN’T just ignore these statistics. We need to decide to confront them and help reverse these trends for the overall betterment of society. But no one can talk about it out of fear of being labeled a ‘racist.’ This needs to change!

Hooray nudists!
You will find some of the nicest people you would ever care to meet at most nudist resorts. Society as a whole seems to equate nudity with sexual perversion, which is far from reality. Most resorts give a free introductory tour. Try it – you may find yourself open to a new and enjoyable lifestyle.

Viva Wiley
Meadowlark is my favorite place. I make the drive from Northern Kentucky as often as I can. Wiley is a great chef and a great hostess. Dayton is lucky to have her. If you haven’t visited Meadowlark, you’re missing out. You will go back.

Grow whatcha’ wanna
Ignore big farm, big Pharma, the USDA and your local zoning, government organizations. Have chickens, grow food and ignore laws, especially ones that restrict independence from corporate manipulation. I advocate tearing every fence down west of the Mississippi and letting the buffalo/bison roll! Go Dan at E.A.T. for Life!
