The order, which had been set to run until May 26, also restricted travel and business, along with threatening jail time or fines for those who don’t comply.”Republican legislators have convinced four justices to throw our state into chaos,” Evers said in a statement at the time.”We cannot let today’s ruling undo all the work we have done and all the sacrifices Wisconsinites have made over these past few months,” he said in the mid May statement. “I am disappointed in the decision today, but our top priority has been and will remain doing what we can and what we have to do to protect the health and safety of the people of our state.”Shortly after the ruling, the Tavern League of Wisconsin, an industry group, posted a message on social media saying that as a result of the decision, businesses could reopen “immediately.”Just hours after the order, several bars in West Allis reopened for business, according to NBC affiliate WTMJ.At Limanski’s Pub, customers were greeted by a sign reading “please sanitize your hands upon entering” and “remain 2 bar stools apart unless from same household.”More than a dozen customers had gathered in the bar shortly after the reopening, the station reported.Customer Katie Koutski told WTMJ the outing was much needed relief.”I have a toddler at home and I’m a full time nurse so it’s been very stressful and hard to not be able to go out and be with my friends and family at the bars,” Koutski said.Kathy Goedde, the bar’s owner, said she reopened soon after hearing the news of the ruling.”I was watching the news, and I saw the order was overturned, so I was pretty happy about that, and then I just waited for the Tavern League to send out information and as soon as we got that, I mean, it was awesome,” she said.Koutski later issued a statement apologizing for not wearing a mask while visiting her sister’s bar.”While my priority was to support my sister and her attempt to restart her business which has been devastated by this pandemic, I’d like to express my regret for not wearing a mask or practicing social distancing while there,” she said in a statement, according to WTMJ. Protesters began gathering in the early afternoon near the city 3rd Precinct station, in the southern part of the city where 46 year old George Floyd died on Memorial Day after an officer knelt on his neck until he became unresponsive.
Indeed, Reed boasted that his collections on Earp and Holliday are so valuable and extensive that the actor Kevin Costner, who played Earp in the 1994 film and who is a Western collector, too, offered to double what Reed had spent on the artifacts. According to one dealer in Colorado Springs, Reed can breeze into a shop and spend thousands of dollars in a matter of minutes. He leaves behind his mayor business card, and the dealer mails out an invoice.
