Jackies at the TANK?

I think moving Jackies to Atkins will be a good move. They're kinda moving home and the Tank has been struggling for a long time. They were new to the restaurant business and it has been challenging for them.  (Mar 12, 2015 | post #8)

new Sheriff

I think we need someone to come forward that has no connection with the department. We need someone that has experience in the military, other police departments or other kinds of law enforcement. It is not good to have someone lead the department that already has friends and enemies that they will be managing. It is not fair to anyone.  (Jan 24, 2015 | post #11)

Best place to get brakes/rotors put on

Many places won't install owner supplied parts or will do so only at a high price. They won't warranty the repair and they are open to liability if there is a brake parts failure problem. I would check with Bucks or Garys to see if they will do it. I doubt the Chevy place would consider it.  (Jan 20, 2015 | post #8)

utility trailer

Unions are the best way to run off businesses and increase unemployment. You young whippershappers don't remember but that is why Mouldings came to Marion from Oregon. The workers said they wanted a union. The owner said if they voted in a union, he would leave. they did and he did. There is a reason that all auto manufacturing companies that have been built in the last several decades were built in the south and not the north. If this area is perceived as pro-union, we will never have another company locate here.  (Jan 4, 2015 | post #9)

Wolfe's BBQ Restaurant & Catering

Look at the regulations and then look at your own kitchen you are so proud of. I'll bet your kitchen would have dozens of violations. It would be next to impossible for a home kitchen to meet most of the standards.  (Nov 19, 2014 | post #26)

dish

I've had Dish over 15 years and I have been happy with them. The equipment and service has improved tremendously over the years. The last problem I had was on a Friday night. I called them and they apologized that they couldn't come and fix it the next day (Saturday) but they came out and fixed the problem promptly on Sunday. My brother griped about his cable and got Dish. He then griped about Dish and when he was eligible he switched to Direct. He was very unhappy and switched back to Dish as soon as he could. He no longer complains.  (Oct 26, 2014 | post #3)

Used Cars

Almost all car lots have good and bad cars. If you know what you're doing, you can judge for yourself. If you don't know anything about cars, you will need to take someone who know with you or take the car to them for inspection. If you buy a bad car, you have only yourself to blame.  (Oct 2, 2014 | post #5)

mshs band

I had Carl Azzara from the 4th or 5th grade through the 10th grade. He left and I stayed on one more year. The best thing that ever happened to me was to get out of the band. Mr. Azzara was one strange and twisted person who treated people very differently. Some loved him but many of us had a less favorable opinion.  (Sep 2, 2014 | post #3)
