Not only can you open carry long guns in Houston and Dallas but in the next session of the Texas legislature they will be taking up open carry of hand guns, and it sounds like they have a very good shot at it.

Respectfully I feel like we are beating a dead horse here, I just assumed a consensual search was implied as ok without a warrant. I think we are both right on the Miranda Rights with the exception of having Nothing to do with being arrested. I won't get into the nitty gritty but anyone interested can look here. http://www.mirandarights.org/postarrestquestionin...
WarCry - One year after concealed carry, Chicago homicide rate plunges - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Pretty much everything said here. Concealed carry has NOT been implemented for a year. The law was PASSED in July 2013, but the first training didn't start until Oct of 2013, and the first permits didn't come off the presses until something like mid-February of 2014. And that was about 5,000 permits scattered all throughout the state. That was the "look, we're really doing something!"…

Admittedly there are many variables that cause or don't cause crime in Chicago but the fact remains that shootings didn't get worse with C & C and shootings by legal gun owners didn't go through the roof because of it. It's impossible to prove crimes that weren't committed because of C & C but it sure is a amazing coincidence that crime went down with implementation of C &…

Seatbelt enforcement is not unconstitutional as has been proven many times over in the courts. You have no constitutional right to drive a motor vehicle on the public roads of any state in the US. Your use of the roads is conditional on your obeying any law the state you are in puts in place whether you like those laws or not. If MO decides you can only drive GM cars in their state then thats what…

Dot Foods commemorates Dorothy's Market Grand Opening

5 months, 2 weeks ago by 0

On Wednesday, Dot Foods hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the grand opening of its new 9,400-square foot Dorothy's Market store located at 125 East Main Street in Mt. Sterling. Dot Foods owners, including company co-founder and Tracy family matriarch Dorothy Tracy, joined employees from Dorothy's Market and Dot Foods, Mt. Sterling Mayor Dane Flesner, and members of the county board and the Action Brown County board to acknowledge the occasion. 

The store, which was named by Dot employees in honor of Dorothy Tracy, is the first new building to be constructed on Main Street in nearly 40 years. Dot Foods, and members of the community, view Dorothy's Market as a catalyst to help drive other new and exciting developments in the uptown area.  Mt. Sterling's long-range plan for the area blends new development and renovation of existing structures. 

"Today is a great day," said Joe Tracy, president of Dot Foods. "We are very excited to have this new location in the historic Uptown district and even more enthusiastic about what this store represents in terms of potential growth for this area. We believe that Dorothy's Market can jumpstart an exciting new era for uptown Mt. Sterling.  We are so pleased at the positive support and response we've already had from the community."

Dorothy's Market replaces the original Dot Foods' Country Store with nearly twice the floor space. The Tracy Family opened the Country Store in 1988 as a way to help curb waste and help the community by offering quality, discounted items in a retail setting. 

The market offers 30 percent more frozen foods space, 15 percent more space for dry goods, and doubled refrigerated space in comparison to the Country Store. Dorothy's Market also offers guests a contemporary general store atmosphere thanks to the skillful designs of architect Kiku Obata & Company, which delved into the history of the community and general stores for design inspiration. 

"We are excited to see the new retailers filling in the Uptown landscape," said Brad Henry, chair of Action Brown County. "Every restaurant and merchant that chooses this area is working together to create a solid business community." 

Today's ceremonial events were a prelude to a big celebration weekend taking place at the store April 4, 5 and 6. Dot Foods is inviting the community to attend the grand opening festivities, which will include the chance to enter to win a Weber Grill, a Kenmore Freezer and $100 Dorothy's Market gift certificates and:

This fall, Dot Foods will also open a restaurant on E. Main Street in the historic Hagel Building.  It will connect to Dorothy's Market through an elevator lobby.  The new restaurant, which will be officially named at a later date, will be open for lunch and dinner and will feature a blend of casual and fine dining options.
