‘Gentlemen’s club9 coming to county
By CRAIG HAMMETT
A legal showdown is brewing between the Courtland the owner of a 'gentlemen's dub1 planned to open this month in Bulverde.
The proposed dub bas also caused concern among area residents, who plan a town meeting Tuesday evening at the Bulverde Community Center. County Commissioner Ntil Craigmile and other county officials will attend the meeting.
The Beaver Dam, located on blanco Road, is scheduled to open July 29, said owner Bill Stewart of Bulverde. Stewart filed for a beer license with the county on May 31 and was granted that license June 7. He did not apply for a sexually oriented business license.
Comal County does have an order, created in 1989 and updated in 1991 regarding SOB’s — sexually oriented businesses.
Tm net a pimp, I’m not a drug pusher, I'm net a child molester M The only people we want to be at the dub are those who want to be here.’
— Bill Stewart, owner of The Beaver Dam
“We have not received an application (for an SOB license) from him or anyone ever in Comal Co.," said Sheriff Jack Bremer. "He has made his intentions dear to me that he intends to open an establishment of this nature."
Stewart baa not filed a petition for a $2,000 SOB license because he feels
his dub does not fall under the county definition as an SOB. Stewart claims the Comal County order is a copy of one used in San Antonio and that he and hts attorney have studied the Comal County order and feel secure they are not violating any law.
“We feel he should have applied for a license,” said County Attorney Nathan Rhein]ander. "There are dvil and criminal measures available for failure to secure a license."
Rheinl andor said the problem comes with the interpretation of the wording of the order regarding the definition of nudity and semi-nudity.
"What this means to me, if the girls are wearing pasties and a G-string, that’s not breaking the law," said Stewart.
"We don’t agree with his interpretation at all,” said Rheinlander who added the county has contacted Dr. David Guinn, a expert on constitutional
•We IMI Im should have applied for a license. There are civil and criminal measures avail* able for failure to secure a license.’
— Nathan Rheinlander, county attorney
law from Baylor University, for advice on the county order. Rheinlander said Guinn has mentioned recent Supreme Court rulings that affect these types of issues and regulations government bodies can enact.
Stewart said he has contacted county officials about his intentions and asked if they had even read the order.
He said he has not beant a reply from either Rheinlander or County Judge Carter Casteel.
"I've never been anonymous with anyone," he said. “...I don't warn to break the law. Tell me where the line is. I don't want to cross the line"
Stewart has been running ads in the Canyon Lake Hnm-GuardUm and the BulverdeStandard that say, "If we build it, they will come," and "The first and only nightclub of its kind in Comal County...EVER! Coming
"We're only one mile inside Comal County," said Stewart who claims to have been misquoted by many in the community.
"No one has even seen what we’re doing here. I’m not a pimp, I’m not a drug pusher, I’m not a child molester...lite only people we want to be it the dub are those who warn to be
