The Sun has a classic newspaper story: Long-existing (but rundown) restaurant wants a zoning variance, but new neighbors object because they're afraid of noise.
The Friendly Inn on Rte 144 in Ellicott City is mostly fighting over an outdoor patio, so the Sun plays down the HowChow angle -- the variance would also cover a snowball stand.
Who could be anti-snowball stand? When they came for the snowball stands, I said nothing because I was not a snowball stand . . . .
