Who has even heard of these stores? Didn't Aaron Bros.go under in 1987? Who wants to take the timeRead More to hack into these accounts? Dummies that shop there don't have any money! Low-brow and low income customers who bring in their 5 screaming kids ( 4 are obese!) And their parents let them terrorize the rest of the shoppers. Free babysitting while Mommy orders an extra large Slushee for Remo and his ADD. Why ? Parents weren't parented either. Or its considered cute as Jr. has his meltdown with sticky chocolate fingers ! Count me out...

Security is a deterrent not a preventative measure. There is no way to be secure from everyRead More possibility because it is impossible to even conceive of every possibility. Instead we try to secure against the threats we know of through experience and those we may anticipate through inference extrapolated from those experiences. The businesses are naturally and rightly profit driven and things that do not directly and or immediately hurt the bottom line do not get priority funding. Thieves too are profit driven though they are less regulated than business and in general face more personal risk than businesses typically do toward realizing their bottom line. Due to the actual few distinctions between the thief and business the thief must be the more resourceful of the two and thus more innovative. Security is always going to be a reactionary means of preventing theft. The proactive means to prevent theft are to accept there is no absolute security and otherwise either too expensive, too harsh, too time consuming or some combination of those. Considering how long humanity seems to have dealt with the issue, one might think we would have tried all of the available variables and figured it out sometime during the last 5000 years through trial and error. Oh wait, we have. Communities where the moral code is instilled in the population from cradle to grave coupled with punishment, justly applied, for infractions have almost zero crime and it costs them almost zero dollars. Face it folks, we're all hippy freaks living in/on a commune we call Earth. Continually spending good money over top of bad as our orthodox approach has required over the centuries has only produced more crime and or prisons. This implies more crime/prisons is the goal if you THINK.

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!

Mark, Your words are absolutely disgusting. Please do not use this comment thread as a vehicle toRead More spew your racist mentality. And for your information, food-borne illnesses come from agriculture, period. All around the world, including in the U.S. Lastly, your hatred for people of colour does not mean that you understand disease, at all. Good luck in life.

I am just curious whwn this list was compiled. 3rd Street Grill has been out of business for quiteRead More sometime, also we have new restaurants in Ramona. If thus was compiled recently, no doubt the new Thai Time restaurant would have been among the top ten!

Gail, Where do you see 3rd Street grill on this list?

So much for having a local editor in Ranona. We aren't Santee, and the standard stock photo usedRead More doesn't represent the actual architectural design worked on by Tractor Supply, Design and Review, and the RCPG. Too bad.

I don't buy coffee at Starbucks and I don't plan to shop here. I like to support locally ownedRead More businesses.

It would be one thing if we had a local option for tractor parts, but we don't. Escondido, is notRead More local. I'll continue to use Burt Guidry for repairs, but for the tractor itself, I hope the name lives up to what they will offer. As for pet supplies and the like, sure, we have multiple locally owned options that will continue to have my business.

I'm sad to hear this news. I felt as if this casino was my own private place....all the staff wasRead More very friendly and the prices were reasonable. I never thought a bankruptcy could be denied. If they cannot pay their debts, does one start going into servitude ?

Our California politicians are totally UNFAIR to all Calif. Indian Casinos. All federally recognizedRead More tribes in Calif. have their own sovereignty which means they govern themselves. Therefore it is illegal for Federa,State and Counties to force them into paying any taxes from money made on their soverein land period. Like our governer Arnold Switchinager told them at the time like a raging bull "You pay your fair share!" Its not a fair share at all and its called ripping off Indian soverein nation so in return Dianne Jacobs our San Diego county supervisor can deny the Indians temporary tax renegotiating during economic hard times and our State denying them chapter 11 bankruptcy which every Amercan tax paying citizen has a legal right to on their own juristiction. So why are our native people being treated this way? Pure GREED and corruption will never stop but I will be writing more letters soon to all our governments about this. I happen to know that Calif's native people are a giving people and want to please. They are a humble Nation that would of given back to our State and communities on their own instead of threatened to do so. Sincerely, Heart Broken 💔

Francis Soyer: Point of information if you will. When one is going to install the new LED light bulbRead More which would be the preferred choice? The MiracleLED Un-Edison 60W Equivalent Frost or the Samsung A19 60-Watt Warm White. From the knowlege you demonstrated above I thought I would ask an expert.
Francis Soyer January 30, 2014 at 07:27 am
Vincent - Honestly I'm not too familiar with either product. Neither is an "industryRead More standard" name brand. Samsung is obviously know for their electronics, I don't know if they are actually manufacturing their LED's or using somebody else's, but Samsung generally has good products. MiracleLED, unknown??? However I did a quick search on both. Samsung: 10.8 watts, 810 lumens, 27,000k, 15,000 hrs, 130 degree beam angle. MiracleLED: 5 watts, 500 lumens, 27,000k, 30,000 hrs, they claim "360 degree lighting" but do not list an actual beam angle, but it would certainly be much greater then the 130 on the Samsung. I would look at application first. Can you see the bulb in the fixture you are putting it in? If so the Samsung's heat sink is very visible and if it were in a glass fixture that I could clearly see the bulb I wouldn't want to see the Samsung bulb, I would pick the MiracleLED even though just by first appearance the Samsung looks like it is made better. I think the only application I would use the Samsung would be in a can light as the light output is more directional especially if I needed more light as the Samsung puts out 60% more light. Both seem to be priced at about $16 each. The more recognized LED name brands are Cree & Nochia, also, GE, Phillips & Sylvania make them as well. I like the "Cree 60W equivalent soft white (2700K) A19 dimmable LED light bulb", sold at Home Depot & Lowes.
