Former Super C owner seeks new license

September 24, 2007

AUGUSTA, Ga.---A controversial restaurant may be making a comeback. Up for discussion in today's Augusta Commission meeting is the Super C nightclub, whose former owner, Charles Cummings, is seeking a new business license.

This time, Cummings wants to simply operate as a restaurant. News 12 has learned he will not request a liquor license.

The Commission voted to close Club Super C back in August. Sheriff Ronnie Strength told the Commission committee that for years, the hotspot has been a headache for law enforcement, citing more than 40 recent problems there, including the murder of Stedmund Fryer in July.

    To Fred:

    I do understand how that portion of the video may have conveyed to you that we had more than a professional connection to the mother whose son was fatally shot in the Augusta nightclub. Every story at News 12 goes through an editorial process before it is pursued and aired. We agree the video of a woman hugging a reporter in her greeting does put us in a light of being overly friendly or familiar with the person we were interviewing. That is not the case and we believe both sides of this story were presented and many voices were heard from in our follow-up about the nightclub murder. Thank you for your comments and thank you for watching News 12.

    I think it's not fair for Mrs. Fryer to blame Super C for the incident in his place of business. He did not allow the person to enter into the club in the first place. The gunmen's sister had the weapon hid under her wig. When security scans the hair it may go off if the bobby pins go off. If anything, her son should have not been there in the first place. The gunman's mother is the one you should be pointing the finger at, not Super C. We had Richmond County police in the establishment. Blame them for the weapon to be allowed in there. Please I need to reopen. Please may God open your heart and eyes to reconsider. Thanks and be blessed.

    Super Bias on Channel 12 - How can you endorse a reporter hugging anyone on video in a story that should show no bias toward either party??? Piss-poor journalism, highly unprofessional. Fire the idiot.

    The community is better off with the club closed, and safer too

    I think that is a great thing because I didn't go there to club but I have eaten there several times. The food was great and a reasonable price. Good Luck
