Apparently Lincoln City has succeeded from the USA, dubious at this particular time or not- Columbus Day is a Federally recognized holiday where banks and the USPS as well as other businesses are closed.

The city should not have authority to dictate which holidays are recognized, what’s next? Thanksgiving?

This is unAmerican and what I can only assume is some liberal attempt at deconstructing our society.

The dictator at the the head of the planning department in some unholy alliance with a subdivision which is prohibited from working on Federally recognized holidays has decided that since the city doesn’t recognize Columbus Day, no one else does. I have a copy of this agreement in writing, but, unfortunately, not a good lawyer. Aghast in Lincoln Fruitopia

Given that the word you were looking for is seceded and that all non federal bodies can decide which federal holidays they will recognise, perhaps you would want to explain what you are talking about?

Was it perhaps the development that is owned by the city that "remained open".

As a Liberal I don't care if people recognise Columbus Day (or any other day at all) as long as they don't demand other people recognise (or not) that day.

If this is the worst thing you have to complain about then I don't think you are paying attention.

How about the suggestion to introduce resident parking permits (at an annual cost) when current parking laws are not enforced? The recent display of poor emergency planning? The decision to paint the town hall bright pink and require everyone to undergo gender reassignment surgery? Ok, I did make the last one up, but the Lincoln City city government is not the liberal hotbed that you seem to think it is.




Columbus Day is a blast from the past. So is manifest destiny, nuclear bomb raids at school and cartoons on Saturday morning.

We now refer to Columbus Day and Indigenous Peoples’ Day.

If Columbus ever did actually step foot in America, he no doubt would have wanted to concor and devide.

Anyway, all local goverment offices were open in all cities in Oregon... unless they made specific emergency closures.

As far as the second comment on gender changes and parking, the parking permits are to keep space for residents, often taken by illegal over booking of VRD's and other non-resident uses...
