Clerics Join Iranian Anti-Government Protests

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMore In a blatant act of defiance, a group of Mullahs took to the streets of Tehran, to protest election results that returned incumbent President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to power. This photo from GOOYA, showing Iranian clerics prominently participating in an anti-government protest, speaks volumes about the new face of Iran’s opposition movement — not just students like in 1999. Whether these clerics voted for Ahmadinejad or one of the opposition candidates is unknown. What is important here, is the decision to march against the will of Iran’s supreme leader who called the results final and declared demonstrations illegal. Some Mullahs and former presidents of Iran have also released statements denouncing the crackdown and election irregularities.

Restaurant Owners Call For Anchor on Food Vans

first_imgThere are currently six registered food trucks in Soldotna. Molly Poland of Hooligans Lodge wants the City of Soldotna to anchor the mobile vendors in one location… Cm. Baxter: “The ordinance that was before us today that we took public hearing on, I was largely in favor of. I hadn’t considered some of the information that was given in public testimony.’ Poland: “I love food trucks. I’m an eater. This figure does not happen overnight, I have to maintain it, but I think that it does, like everything, go through some regulations so that it’s fair to everyone.” The City Council decided to delay any changes to the current regulations, sending it back to the Planning and Zoning Commission for another public hearing. Councilor Keith Baxter said it wouldn’t make any difference to current vendors either way, since vendors already have their permits for this summer.center_img FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Brick and mortar businesses say they need regulations to level the playing field when food trucks pull in for the busy season. The City of Soldotna last night considered changing regulations to give truck operators a one-year license for $50, and the option to move around the city. On the other side, mobile vendors say they’ve got to start somewhere and many live on the Kenai Peninsula year-round, holding other jobs during the winter. She says the City should limit the number of food trucks to help level the playing field for the year-round businesses who rely on the summertime flood of tourists to pay their winter debts.last_img read more
