Editorial: Timing of midnight music deadline is poor
There appear to be good reasons for the city of Hastings to force local bars to stop their outdoor music at midnight during Rivertown Days.
Many local bars are in residential areas, and hearing a rock band play outside at 12:30 a.m. doesn't sit well with those neighbors.
But talk about bad timing.
In years past, bars were able to have bands play in tents until 1 a.m.
There was no indication this year would be any different.
