ODESSA — The mayor of a western Missouri town expects hundreds of residents to speak out at a meeting against a former white supremacist leader's plan to open a nightclub.
Odessa is a community of about 4,800 people a half-hour east of Kansas City.
Mayor Tom Murry said the city is doing everything it can to prevent Charles Juba from opening a nightclub aimed at people under 21 years old.
Juba is a former self-proclaimed Aryan Nations leader. He said he has left his racist past behind, but opponents worry he'll use the club to recruit youths to his views.
Thursday night's special Board of Aldermen meeting is the second in three days. At a similar meeting Tuesday, Juba was shouted down when he discussed plans for the club.
