Pat Dettloff also stated she was against opening another bar. Chairman Eckerly read a letter drafted and submitted by Mike and Judy Payne of Blueberry Lake Oasis. Mike said he and Judy have worked hard for the past 5 years to increase their business and John has tried numerous things to try and put them out of business.
