Right now, the Greater Williamsburg area is having 2 somewhat major disputes: a homeless shelter and Hooters (they are wanting to open a restaurant in our area.) Granted Hooters is a business and it will bring more income into this area, but what else does it bring? In the Bible, it speaks of the 'strange women' who tempt the men away from their wives and families (Proverbs 7:1-27; Proverbs 2:16-19; Proverbs 6:25). There are some who want the business to come to this area, but for the mostpart, it remains unwanted. So, the owners are choosing to go to York County (yes where we may end up as well) where the officials support any economy increase. Yet, it is ironic that a homeless shelter is also being disputed. Although it would not increase the income and jobs needed in our area, it provides a place for those on the streets to sleep and live. A shelter that will be designed to keep the families, husbands and wives together and lives up to God's commands to help the poor and the needy.

Unfortunately, Hooters probably has a better chance of getting a building than the homeless do. They have the funds behind their owls 'eyes'.
