At PM, a buzzer from downstairs sounded, and bartender Buddy Rasmussen, an Air Force veteran, asked Luther Boggs to answer the door, anticipating a taxi cab driver. Boggs opened the door to find the front staircase engulfed in flames, along with the smell of lighter fluid. Others saw the floor to ceiling windows as the most promising means of escape despite the fact that there were safety bars on the windows with a 14 inch gap between them to prevent dancers from breaking through the glass. Several people managed to squeeze through, some still burning when they reached the ground below. Luther Boggs was one who came through the window in flames after pushing his female friend through the gap.
A woman is suing the leaders of a north Mississippi town, accusing them of conspiring to prevent her from opening a gay bar by denying an application for a business license. Pat Newton filed the federal lawsuit Tuesday against the mayor and six aldermen of Shannon, a town of about 1, in Lee County, where Newton has been trying to open a cafe and bar called O'Hara's to cater to the gay community. The year-old Newton, who is a lesbian, is seeking monetary damages and an order to allow her to open the business, as well as attorneys' fees and court costs. It says Shannon Mayor Ronnie Hallmark "led a conspiracy to deny Newton a business license" and solicited community opposition to the bar.
