Two things Mr. Lorence, fireworks are not legal in the City of Whittier, and what are you doing in the kitchen? That is a womans place. What's the matter with you?
I know the city wants to inconvience every one attempting to get into the parking lot because of the zanies on Homeland. They already have the largest "Not A Through Street" sign I have ever seen, but now they don't want legal U turns in front of "their" street. Someone at the city with a spine needs to tell them it is "our" street, and "we" will use it in any legal fashion we desire.
If you make it difficult for shoppers to get in the way they want, they will go elsewhere. Just look at the crap bit of planning that went into the Fresh and (not so) Easy at Painter.
