Lifetime Mount Vernon resident Denny Clark, who worked for former
bar owner Joe McClain, has purchase Joes International Airport.
Clark and his wife, Coreen, renamed it C and D Lounge and removed
the airplanes, but will continue the tradition of renting the basement
for parties and hiring Cornellians to tend bar. Why fix something
when its not broken, Clark said. Another downtown establishment,
the former Billi-Bobs, reopened this summer as the Hilltop
Bar and Grill owned by Chris Meuleners'02. He has created
a menu including burgers, sandwiches, and fried appetizers. Its
a mix between the Ratt and Applebees, Meuleners said.

Jackson stumps for 28th amendment, not presidency
U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.) proposed a constitutional amendment
to guarantee public education of equal high quality
during April appearances on campus. He spoke for the annual Small-Thomas
Lecture Series, Dreams of Peace: Visions of the Future,
funded by Richard Small '50 and honorary alumna Norma Thomas
Small. Jackson spoke from the same
King Chapel podium where his father, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, campaigned
in 1987 during his bid for the Democratic nomination for president.
When asked by an aud ience member, the younger Jackson did not rule
out running for president, but said pushing for a constitutional
amendment is more important to him. I may never be president
of the United States, but if I pass this amendment, Im a founding
father, he said.
