Shouldn't there be a more germane question of 'why do they have investments?'

Don't investments come from disposable income? Would it be more advantageous to lower the tuition rate to equal this excess disposable income? Wouldn't that be a better rate of return for these student's tuition money investments.

In this modern age, getting fired is like winning the lottery. I also sense a disability claim because of the mold exposure.

Rather than worrying about a study on reflectivity, because these problem signs should speak for themselves without needing a scientific study, I would like to see a budget allocation study to standardizing the speed limit signs thru out the city.

First, I do not think there is any safety correlation to justify the small speed change from 30 to 25mph and, and, secondly, it requires huge alertness to a sign change from 30mph to 25 mph in order to avoid a ticket.

If the streets are homogeneous in design and usage, then the limit should be identical for each section. What is it going to be: 25 or 30mph. Either one works for me as long as it is consistent.

What an enjoyable (and well written) article. I have always made an effort to include a trip to Venice somewhere in an Italian trip. This city is so different and so beautiful that it is a #1 destination. Barney has created some great word pictures to refresh my memories.

I think the City contributes to the quality of recycling and confusion in their waste contract to our two service providers.

I feel Allied goes by the book (the contract) and trains their workers to refuse pick up for the smallest reason; Marborg seems to be very accommodating and helpful to 'get rid' of that trash. Perhaps I can paraphrase this as 'helping the customer.'

I had some brand new, leftover 2x4s and boards from rebuilding a shelf at a downtown property and Allied's agent refused to pick up the wood pieces as green because he called it demolition.

I even pleaded with the Allied agent to take it as green. I didn't want to see this wood end up in the dump when I knew it was perfect compost.

I took the pieces to my home in San Roque, served by Marborg, and I asked Marborg if he would take the waste wood as greens and without even blinking an eye, he tossed it into his truck.

I got rid of my little pile of wood and I felt good that it would be recycled. That's win-win and I vote for Marborg.

I think #11 mistake is not showing up.

It takes a fantastically organized and disciplined life to show up almost every day of the week to lift the weights, ride the bike and sweat a bit to get the free shower.

It makes me feel good that a widely circulated public newspaper adds support to our local businesses. This is such a positive tribute to the importance of the people we visit with our trade!

My best wishes for success to Olio Pizzeria.

Where are the current hotel tax receipts being spent? Isn't the TBID just a new word describing the existing bed tax? I'm from the gov't and I am here to help you.

Would be interesting to have an article from Grandpa of his perspective and opinion of the boy's visit.
