DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - Whether it's her yard or her neighborhood, Lodia Furnas doesn't mind doing the heavy lifting.
But even she wasn't sure if the work would pay off.
"I couldn't believe it," Furnas says. "I said is it really going to happen? Is it true?"
From the day it opened two and a half years ago, Furnas says the Loch Nez bar across the street from her Huffman Avenue home has been a problem.
"It totally deteriorates a neighborhood," Furnas says. "It brings down the value of a neighborhood."
But the bar's owner, Sheryl Williams, tells a different story.
"I always think I've run a decent bar," Williams says.
So 2 NEWS took a look at the complaint the city filed against Loch Nez with Ohio's Liquor Control Board.
According to it between January of 2011 and July of 2012 the bar had 66 police calls for things like fights and intoxication.
So we took those numbers to Williams.
"A lot of them were traffic stops in or around my bar, some were phone calls saying I was growing marijuana, it was tomato plants, other times customers allegedly had guns, it was cell phones," Williams says. "A lot of it was from neighbors calling who wanted to shut the bar down from the very beginning."
But the Liquor Control Board ruled against her liquor license renewal, so she appealed.
Eventually an agreement was reached. She would close the bar at the end of April but keep the liquor license with the option to use it somewhere else.
For some neighbors it's a victory.
"Anybody if they want to solve a problem if they get together and fight it they can win," Furnas says.
For Williams, it's a reason to change careers.
"I'm ready to go in a different direction," Williams says. "Maybe I'm done with the bar business for a while."
