Houses that should be demolished or repaired

It sounds so simple - just demolish the house. Not so simple at all. A demolition permit is required. To get the permit, the dollar amount of the bid must be given to the city. The city deposits the money and holds it until the demolition has been completed to the city's satisfaction. No trace of the building, the sidewalk to the building or the driveway can be remaining. Just in the paper the other day was that a bid of $4700.00 had been approved for the demolition of some building here. Once it has been approved, the money is refunded to the owner. Suppose an owner could do the demolition but the deposit would still be required and the cost for big dumpsters is not cheap and most would need to rent equipment to get the job done.  (Oct 13, 2013 | post #123)

cableNone

Paper said we were still going to have TBS, TNT & TOON. Flipping channels, I see those still show up but nothing is on them. The channels we "lost" don't show up at all. Isn't the cable contract done by the city? Wonder when the contract is up? I "survived " when I stopped getting HBO & the other premium channels. I know lots of people that don't do cable at all and rely on Netflix and Hulu. At $7.99 each a month plus whatever for WiFi internet, the option of leaving cable is looking better and better.  (Oct 2, 2013 | post #9)

Douche Bags at Miller Bros

I stopped going there years ago and now don't even remember why. Could be because the guys on the east end station are always so nice. Nice to go to a place where they always seem happy to see you even if they don't know you. Many other businesses in Independence could take customer service lessons from the Miller Bros on East Main.

weird second grader

Could be that he wants to be a dinosaur but you will never know unless you ask someone. I would suggest you ask in a more diplomatic way than how you posted on here. AND ask a person that might actually have an answer say like the teacher, the principal, his parent.  (Sep 7, 2013 | post #16)

I can't believe 94.9 fired Spankie!!!!!

What a piece of crap you are!!! You don't hesitate to name people on here and hide behind "same ol same ol". Register, sign in and put your name to any post you make that will contain the name of some one else that you have heard a rumor about. Shame on all of you that hide behind some stupid name and bash others. Very brave when no one knows who you are. Why do I ever come here thinking I can learn about something that might be going on in Indy and not get upset reading junk. I read this post hoping to hear something good about Spanky and wind up reading trash from rumors posted on here by some coward. SHAME ON YOU!!! KSKathy also known as Kathy Worthington. Step up COWARDS!!!  (Jul 27, 2013 | post #30)

Train derailed

Heard a loud sound but not too many sirens after so thought it must not have been anything. Went out a bit ago and saw a train was stopped on the overpass on Penn by Woods. Looked to the left and saw a white car looking to be off the tracks on what might be 8th street. Police cars and emergency vehicles all over the place. Road behind Woods is now blocked.  (Jul 27, 2013 | post #2)

place to play pool?

Club 301 has a room with several pool tables. At least they did the last time I was there.  (Jun 9, 2013 | post #8)

Service at Star Lube

I've gone there for years and never a problem. There have been times that I haven't even been charged for the time it took someone to check on something such as tires. Once took a car in for oil change and was informed that I really didn't have enough miles on the car to warrant a change - even though it had been way over a year since the last change. I appreciate that type of honesty and will continue being their customer.  (Apr 17, 2013 | post #44)

Anyone watching the Jodi Arias Trial? Thoughts?

I just keep thinking back to the Casey Anthony trial when it was just almost a sure thing for most of us that she would be found guilty - and she wasn't. We see all this stuff and hear quite a bit of facts and opinions that the jury will not have access to until after the trial. An example is the video of Travis shooting with friends that was given to a show and not to the persons connected to the trial. Apparently there were requests for the video after it was aired. ??? I firmly believe that she planned this waaaay before she got to his house and I think the evidence that has so far been presented and the testimonies clearly show this. Just hoping that the jury sees it that way too. 1st degree premeditated with the death penalty. Why death? I believe that in prison she will become "Miss Congeniality" and fit right in to prison society. Have you seen her "friend" Donovan? Thought it was a male but seems to be a female and she speaks of "our" hopes and plans. Same song for Jodi just different people and place. Just my opinion and very happy not to be on that jury.  (Mar 3, 2013 | post #11)

Would you pay for an online edition of the Independence R...

"Local news is available at various websites around town, and local obituaries are listed at the funeral homes." Where are you finding local news or better yet what "various websites". I get the Reporter "Daily and Sunday"???? and would stop if I knew there was a reliable place to get local news.  (Feb 11, 2013 | post #5)
