How many people really read this paper? Whenever it gets delivered in my neighborhood in Arnold I see it out in the road being driven over and over again. I do pick up mine but it has really nothing but advertisements in it. I have been told the man who owns it really gets upset with you when you want to stop advertising with him. Does anyone know what he is really like.

Does it really matter what he is like, or how many people read the paper? If you don't like the paper, don't read it. If you currently advertise with him and no longer wish to do so, that's your perrogative. If he gets upset, that's his problem to deal with, not yours.

Would it hurt you to pick up others that you see on the road? Have you seen all of the trash that is in the trees, along the road side and in the bushes on Jeffco across from the Shop n Save plaza? Instead of complaining, why don't you take a bag and pick up some of those you see along with other litter along the streets?

For your information I do pick up other peoples trash and get tired of the people in Jefferson County not caring about where we live. Drive along Vogel road. I told my husband it is a shame the way people throw their trash out along the road. I do my share do you?

Yes it does matter. I know of two people he has hurt and one could sue him for sexual harassment. My husbands company had dealings with him and my husband said he was a jerk. I wish I had been there to defend my friend. She did not know what to do and was embarrassed. Thing was someone was there and only caught part of what he said and asked her about it. she told that person too. No way she can prove it tho. Just like the write up about the Texas Road house. Uncalled for!The only thing I read in that paper is from Diane Brown on the school district. Wish she would put it in the Leader that gets mailed to homes.

It was stupid. I even called the Roadhouse and told the manager it was a stupid article and to consider the source. It was uncalled for. Dumb! Oh but his answer would be "you got exposure".

As I usually throw that red wrapped monthly in the recycle bin when I get it, I did not see that article. Will you please tell what was in it that was hurtful to the Roadhouse?

The so-called-editor of the Rock is Ron Clark, a horse's hind end. Among his accomplishments is he was on the school board and voted to fire Diana Bourisaw. When he likes you he will write about you. He is a good guy to have around when he needs something from you. You will also notice that he has not enough conviction in his craft to put by lines in the articles he writes with such Junior High newsletter command of the language.

It didn't hurt the Roadhouse. It was just dumb to put it in the paper. It happens all the time in the restaurants. When they get busy a group can get misplaced. I thought it was silly to put something like that in the paper. I showed it to my husband and he even said consider the source. That's why I called the restaurant and told them it was dumb for the article to be written. I thought what a jerk, just trying to make them look bad. You are right about him. He might think he's great, but as for our school board, that's another story. But your right, he writes well for people he likes. It must be, you rub my back and I'll rub yours. His delivery guy needs to make sure the paper gets thrown up on the lawn or in the driveway because it does trash the streets!

I laughed because I know he is a jerk and you must be his friend or you wouldn't ask stupid questions.

please ease off the Arnold First Baptist newsletter. I look forward to that little red package to show up in my yard/street. I then know its time to clean my birds cage, because I now have something to catch all the bird poop in the bottom of the cage. Sometime I do feel bad for the poop, but it seems at home with all the printed crap. But if you want to stop the Legal littering of the AFB newsletter, start contacting everyone that runs an ad and let them know what you think.

Not a friend, don't know him at all. It's just that every time you post something you say, "and I said to my husband" or "and my husband said".

Maybe because my husband and I are best friends and that is why we have been married for 44 years. We do talk. Sorry if you don't have that kind of relationship. It's great to love someone for a lot of years.

Very nice man. I love when I get the newspaper delivered.. Being in sales and marketing for Many years....it is those little newspapers (such as the Rock and the leader) that generate business for their advertisers.
