DKI aka Downtown Kalamazoo Inc in cooperation with The Boys and Girls Club had children paint a bar.

There is something fundamentally wrong when DKI aka Downtown Kalamazoo Inc, a quazie-governmental/non profit, sees fit to have children paint a bar. In cooperation with DKI, The Boys and Girls Club evidently provided child labor to paint a wall size mural on the Home Bar located on Portage Street.

Concerned parents and relatives sat in Premier Mortgage Funding Inc's downtown parking lot, under the hot sun: to "make sure" the children did not go in the bar to use the restroom. Even channel 3 News showed up to air the atrocity with a positive spin. The final insult occurred on Thursday August 4, 2005. DKI had a celebration party for the Kids N Bars type event. Apparently, even Mayor Robert Jones was present to celebrate Kids painting a bar. Jones has also announced that he plans to seek election in November 2006 for the 60th District House seat that will be vacated by Alexander Lipsey due to term limits. Kids and bars do not go together, Period.
