It could cost Americans 20 percent more to get their bacon fixes as a deadline virus sweeps through the nation's hog barns. (Patch file photo)

There is always a reason for a price-increase - I can't remember ever reading about a reason for aRead More price-decrease. It's possible no one else has noticed this. Isn't capitalism wonderful?

The disease came from China! Aids came from Africa, other diseases come from Mexico but yet we letRead More people flood to this country and they bring those diseases with them!

The price of pork can also go up because the price of beef is up. It's not just weather andRead More disease, it's also cost of fuel.

Love Da Tuna Shack! Some of these others I've never heard of...time to go explore my little town.

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.

Someone mistakenly posted to the Buckhead Patch and now every time someone responds to someone elseRead More via their email, it goes here. Respond through the Royal Oak Patch website to get it back on track.

Stan - u should check your view settings. It seems like your comments contain a **** load ofRead More periods.
stanley seigler January 27, 2014 at 05:58 am
RE periods...PATCH could eliminate the periods if they would format the comment section to recognizeRead More paragraphs... ......................................................................................... apologies if periods annoy ...they are an attempt to recognizes paragraphs ......................................................................................... anyone, any suggestions? would '+++' be better??? ......................................................................................... BTW not sure if 'T' is 'bustin my whatever'...but i have no idea what view settings are or how to check them...

Just another Obamanation. A disgusting president.
Stephen D. Clark January 18, 2014 at 08:03 am
Baloney. The "disgusting" president was the one who falsely alleged a threat to theRead More national security of the United States in order to dishonestly justify the Invasion of Iraq, which condemned 4,486 American armed forces members (http://icasualties.org/) to futile deaths and sparked a conflagration that has consumed the lives of what has been scientifically estimated as well over a million Iraqis (http://www.globalresearch.ca/new-analysis-confirms-1-million-iraq-casualties/7950).

don't expect employers to call you back. most managers are busy and they can forget things. callRead More them a few days after the interview. good news is their are jobs... if you want to work retail for 8 bucks/hour. who can live on that? hard to not take it personally. I applied for a driver at pizza hut... was turned down via email, no meeting, no interview... I have lots of work experience, no criminal record, no accidents or points... no drug issues... how can they turn me down based on a resume and email? my age I'm guessing.
