From the High School Free Speech Front:

"If they feel an article isn't appropriate, they will pull it -- or ask the student to make changes to it. They said that isn't censorship. They said they're just approving or not approving what goes in. What's your definition of censorship?"

North Logan considers adding more liquor licenses

By Jen Pulham

February 25, 2005 | NORTH LOGAN -- The Planning and Zoning Commission met Thursday night and discussed a possible increase of liquor licenses. North Logan currently has only two liquor licenses that allow for on-site consumption. This means that alcohol served at an establishment is not permitted to be taken off the premises. City planner Cordell Johnson said, "It has to be served with the meal and consumed on site."

North Logan is entertaining the idea of either raising the number of liquor licenses to five or discontinuing the issue of liquor licenses altogether. As North Logan continues to see a lot of growth, many new businesses have applied to receive liquor licenses. Also, with the proposed city center, there will be several new restaurants that would possibly apply.

Members of the commission had different opinions regarding the liquor licenses.

"I personally look at this not as an alcohol issue but as an economic issue," said commission member Cary Watkins. Watkins worries that if there are no liquor licenses allowed, restaurants and microbreweries will not build in North Logan.

"I just wonder if that shuts all those opportunities off," he said. "It is an economic issue. These people won't show up."

Commission member Alan Spendlove worries about bringing alcohol into the community. "It ruins lives," he said.

The proposed ordinance will be brought before the city council in the next couple of weeks.
