The headline in yesterday’s Rapid City Journal says it all: Spencer’s ends sales of adult items. This unexpected action by the giant corporation — Spencer’s Gifts LLC — is a testimony to the positional strength of Rapid City’s Adult Orientated Business Ordinance (AOB). In 2003 the Rapid City voters overwhelmingly approved restrictions on AOB’s. This was done in order to protect our community’s children from the destructive nature of pornography. Our community standards were set in place and our city officials have been diligent in the enforcement of them.
