But I think you should ask just incase, or there might even be one up there not being used that they can connect the new wires to.

Re: The Torch House has arrived

I spoke to Cesar about renting from him to start a place up. He was ok for the first phone call, said we could meet up and talk business. He quoted me a decent amount for rent per month. Second phone call he said he had no desire to rent out the space, but wanted to "partner up" and I needed to bring at least 75,000 to the table. He said that he could charge at least 7000 a month in rent because of the liqour license. I stopped there with him. He has essentially set up a spot, re modeled and bought new kitchen equipment, but wants to only collect on the business.

At this point if any place is to succeed there, they need to completely remodel. It has the stench of failure all over it.

And whoever said I was referring to the baseball field of 6th just didn't read my posts. Also I clearly stated there are no signs at the park on 8th and Brunswick...

Re: LOTS of new Stop Signs Downtown

Just this morning, I watched yet another person blow through the stop sign at Erie and First. Then I stepped in the road to cross Erie, and somebody shouted "look out!" That same car was now backing up through the First and Erie intersection.

I wasn't looking in her direction, as I don't expect cars to to be coming from wrong way on this one-way street. I pulled my dog out of the way moments before he would've been flattened.

Because yes, I am this kind of person, I ran after the car. She stopped in front of that little Montessori school and calmly explained to me that she was just dropping off her son.

To recap: This woman drove backwards on a one-way street for an entire block in order to get her kid to nursery school.

Interesting side-note: The man who alerted me was the same gentleman who walks down Erie yelling at phantoms, occasionally with a vuvuzela and/or hardhat. This is the only moment of clarity I've ever witnessed from him, and it literally saved my dog's life. I thanked him profusely, and he replied, "the people in this town drive like they're crazy."


This is why so many college music programs make you use pen. If you make a mistake you gotta live with it or start over. She missed her turn so she backs up? What a moron.

Whoa this is a really loaded statement. How many people on the plan? What ages? What genders? What will the co/pay, co insurance, deductible be? Maximum out of pocket?

These are all factors. The most costly people to insure are girls/women aged from 12-45. The next high risk group are young men. The lowest group is the elderly. You cannot just put a number out there like that without any other information.

It is not a perfect system yet, but we can't just keep going the way we were.

They certainly exist, but they're generally indicative of a failing mall. Given how thin the operating margins for grocery stores tend to be, they really can't afford to pay much more than a few dollars / SF. If the mall's doing well, they're generally able to make a few extra dollars / SF renting to a traditional anchor tenant.

Whole Foods is not a typical example.

Has anyone ever seen a supermarket inside a regional mall? Curious, because I haven't and wonder why.

Someone pointed out that Sears is on death row. JCP might not be far behind. With all the parking, why not a TJ and/or a WF?



Before whole foods was in that mall in paramus that place was just about dead. Waaay deader then newport.

Well since we broke one half of the golden rule of the internet by talking about politics I'll bring in the other half, religion. For a so called christian nation as some in both parties have said, not wanting to help care for your fellow citizens would probably have really upset Jesus.

Maybe this country is way more amoral then we think we are.

I see. So, it allows you to pursue some profitable possibilities, safe in the knowledge that if you succeed, you are good, and if you fail, I will pay your bills.

Great idea.

Oh, and the same is true for the car companies, banks, and now insurance companies, - if they are profitable, they keep the profits, and if not we cover their losses. Yep, this is obama economy.

Actually I see it as living in a community and a society. Unless you are digging your own well, finding your own source of electricity that you produce, harvesting crops, and slaughtering animals you have to get along and help others. We live in a city here of more then a quarter million people. Illness can be passed very easily.

Yes we do have to pay for others mistakes sometimes at very high levels it seems, but we could go back to people dying in factories, children working, etc etc... If GM, Ford, and a few banks all went bankrupt and all their employees were unemployed how long until the bread lines form? Obama's main job is to keep the nation stable and the job changes everyday. The fact that illness is bankrupting and crippling individuals and families that are prepared is a sign that the system needs to be changed.

No. Sorry, but I am not behind this. My kids are in school long enough. By the end of the day they are exhausted. They get home by around 4. Homework is never 20 minutes like they say it is, it usually takes an hour. Then I have to make dinner and they eat and go to bed. They barely have time to go outside and play. No fucking way would I want my kid to be in school longer. Awful idea.


4?!? I never got home before 6 after rehearsals and practices.

Pebble, I was typing while you posted. Your salary numbers, are they weighed for the fact that teachers work only about 180 days a year?? You know, the ten week summer vacation, the long holiday breaks, and every conceivable individual holiday?

Or did you not figure that into comparing salaries??


Ok how about this we just have no public education system and have a society of slack jawed yokels.

I teach privately and charge between $60 to $75 an hour for one on one instruction. Now imagine how little a teacher is getting to teach a classroom of around 25 children and trying to get all 25 to focus. They are vastly underpaid.
