Barefoot Annies in Trouble

Hello friends, See message below for the plight. This little Coffee Shop in Simpsonville SC is one of our favorite places to play. Kim Carter is absolutely one of the nicest people you could ever meet. If you're so inclined, maybe you could send a letter or fax to Mayor Dennis Waldrop or the City Council. Address is 118 NE Main Street, Simpsonville, 29681; phone number is 864-967-9526, fax is 967-9525, and the website (which I assume has email links) is www.simpsonville.com We'd hate to lose another fine venue. I know it's short notice, and some of you don't live anywhere near here. But if you choose to take action, please know it will be appreciated (and if not, we love your support anyway). All the best, Lucy From: Kim Carter [mailto:barefootannies@charter.net] Sent: Sunday, October 29, 2006 6:57 PM Subject: Demolishing Barefoot Annie's! Hey! I've got a problem and I don't know if you have any suggestions for how to overcome it. Here's the deal: A development company has approached the owners of the building I'm leasing with an offer to buy. The owners have not formally rejected the offer, so the developers have petitioned City Hall for a re-zoning hearing to ask permission to demolish Barefoot Annie's and other buildings that occupy the property. I need to send a message to these developers that my building/business should not be destroyed! I have a petition for the community to sign if they believe that demolishing Barefoot Annie's is wrong - and I am asking the community to show up in their Barefoot Annie's T-shirts and speak up against this possible re-zoning on November 7th at the initial meeting at City Hall. Is there any other thing I should be doing that you can think of? I was on the local news channel all weekend with a story that Channel 4 did on my plight - and that's gotten the word out to more of the community, too. I'm fighting for survival and I need all the help I can get! Anything you can suggest will be appreciated! Should we do an "Annie-Aid" (I'm not sure I'm even joking about that...)? Thanks, Kim Carter
