Before voting this week to adopt the written minutes of several 2017 meetings of the Board of Supervisors, Hampton district Supervisor John Lesinski called attention to numerous typos that needed to be fixed, one of which drew loud laughter from the audience.
During a public comment period last year surrounding the request from landowner Bill Fletcher to turn an agricultural field into a public events venue, county resident Jay Miller pointed out that previous functions held in the county attracted large crowds with no problems, as Fletcher hoped for.
Miller “is sure that the Hooters event was more than 8,000 people” — or at least that’s what the meeting minutes said.
Hooters, however, is a popular restaurant chain that features a wait staff of ladies dressed in revealing outfits. As Lesinski figured it, the county employee who took the notes that day confused Hooters with Cooter’s — as in the former Cooter’s in the Country store in Sperryville, which closed its doors in 2016 and moved to Luray.
