This same thing, in a different form, is going on with the barber school on Spring. There are drugs being run thru there on a constant basis. All one has to do is stand across the street and watch or talk to the shop owners to see the money and supplies changing hands, the frequency of cars coming and going, the multiple 'student body', the frequent trips to the side of the building, the double parking while someone darts in and out of a car and the frustrated calls to the police department that continue to go unheeded.
The guy running the place gets tons of money for "educating" ex-felons and I use the term "ex" quite lightly.
This pill-mill isn't the only dirty little secret Jeff keeps under cover.
First of all I cannot believe that any of my fellow neighbors have been harboring these untrue, unfounded, and completely outrageous opinions about my school!
Just to be crystal clear THERE NEVER HAS AND NEVER WILL BE ANY ILLEGAL NARCOTIC USAGE OR TRAFFICKING in connection with MY school or its students, we are a college not a bar so when our students smoke they are respectful to my neighboring businesses by going to the side of the building or sitting in their vehicles and smoking their TOBACCO or E-Cig products. You commented on the frequency of cars "coming and going" to which I must ask you..... what about traffic in a barber shop is suspicious ??? There have not been any incidents or complaints to my knowledge of anyone double parking to visit my establishment and my neighboring business owners and I have a great repertoire with one another partly due to the fact that I demand a courteous and respectful demeanor be displayed in and around my establishment by my students. Students which you refer to as "ex-cons" include many of our best and bravest from our military, college students and graduates, and many upstanding members of our local churches.
I would reckon that those of you who harbor these feelings towards my business have never stepped foot inside of it. We service members of Jeffs SWAT team and other 1st response crew from the surrounding area. We also service all of the following organizations for FREE haircuts ; Clark County Youth Services, Life Springs, Haven House, Jerrys Place, Childs Place, VOA, Dare 2 Care, Relay for LIfe, and Maple Elementary PTO, just to name a few. My students economic contribution to this community is over $3,000 a week at several other businesses including local restaurants and gas stations and in 3 years of operating in this location I cannot recall even a single speeding ticket from local law enforcement for even one of my students.
In closing I must say that while some of my students have previously been in trouble with the law, the fact that they are paying to come and learn a trade or better themselves is a positive blessing and I ask that like myself you would applaud them and encourage them instead of condemning them and exhibiting this type of hatred and ignorance.
Our schools doors remain open for ANY and Everyone to come for a hair cut, massage, or even just a friendly visit to chat with me personally!
