Danville Prepares for VP Debate http://wkms.org/post/danville-prepares-vp-debate <p>Politicians are not the only ones hoping for a boost from Wednesday’s vice presidential debate. Danville is preparing for visitors and recognition too. The city of about 16,000 has repaved streets, planted flowers and erected new signs all in preparation for the debate and the many visitors that it will bring into town. One of the local bars has even created cocktails bearing Joe Biden and Paul Ryan’s names. That’s a big change from the last time the debate was held at Danville’s Centre College in 2000, when alcohol sales were banned in the city.

The most outward signs of this increase include chain-link fences and concrete barriers on the streets surrounding the college. Centre’s Debate Committee Co-chairman Clarence Wyatt says planning this year is much more complex than when the college hosted its first vice presidential debate in 2000. Roads around the campus will be closed starting Tuesday and anyone attending the event should expect their bags to be searched.
