  1. > Pot shop clashes with tourism stores in eclectic Arkansas town.

    That's an Alaska town. Also the linked story starts by describing the town

    … the two long blocks that make up its Main Street, where tourists – many who arrive in Alaska on cruise ships and are bused about two hours north from Anchorage – wander into storefronts like Nagley's General Store for ice cream or slip through its back door for a cold one at the West Rib Bar and Grill.

    and goes on to describe the "problem" thus:

    some shop owners – the ones who built a multimillion-dollar business from the steady stream of mountain climbers who use Talkeetna as a staging point for treks up Denali – say this one shop could ruin the tiny town's historic atmosphere and harm business like the eight or so stores that serve alcohol along Main Street could never do.

    Sounds like the "historic atmosphere" ship sailed a long time since.
