The family told Foothills Business Daily that the parents will still be around, but working more “normal hours.” The Pakistani restaurant was opened in 2013; the Khans immigrated to the US from Pakistan in 2004.

Lake George Skate Plaza Condemns Graffiti But Welcomes Artist Input
The Lake George Skate Plaza posted on Monday a plea for the graffiti at the park to stop. “We encourage growth and have a deep respect for taggers/artists, but what is present isn’t art, and doesn’t have any positive contribution to the park whatsoever.”
That being said, they are actively seeking out artists to help design and paint/tag a cohesive theme for the park.

Herbicide Plans Put on Pause for Hague Bays
The herbicide debate continues with the Lake George Park Commission (LGPC) and the Lake George Association, the latter of which filed a lawsuit last week.
The suit claims that the Adirondack Park Agency (who is working in conjunction with the LGPC, and who received approval to use the pesticide) did not comply with certain laws and regulations, and that the approval process was rushed.
The LGPC has agreed to hold off using ProcellaCOR EC on the planned two bays in Hague until June 15, reports News 10 ABC.
