Re: Historic Elements of Country Club Plaza - Slowly Disappearing

It's difficult for me to see it the way it is now. I worked in the offices of Caldwell's Shoes (over the grocery store; next to Country Club Bank where Jan Stenerud & Len Dawson worked at the time) in 1971-73. I miss those days of lunch at Putsch's, getting prescriptions delivered by the pharmac...

Re: Aggressive panhandlers

The ones I detest are the "professionals." I see them a lot in Liberty. Same people, same intersections. Often a very healthy-looking dog with them, nice backpack, cellphone, etc., but holding a sign about hungry, out of work, etc. We've lived here for almost 8 years and I've seen a couple...

Re: Liberty Commons

Louie's Wine Dive is also opening in a month or so. Not at all surprised about Gordman's. Dreadful store. Once was enough. I keep wondering if Natural Grocer's will make it. It is completely dead every time I've been there. Odd concept of a store. Grocer's is a bit of a misnomer since it is mostly s...

Re: New Restaurants/Other Businesses in Northland

Starbucks going in at 96th and N Oak Trafficway next to the new Platte Valley Bank. Not far from there, on opposite side of N. Oak, they are renovating the building that used to be an Italian restaurant (Rosetti's or something like that--closed for a long time). Any idea what is going in there? Bas...

Re: At what point does DT become overbuilt with respect to Apartments

Thanks for the suggestions! We will check it out! When condo shopping, ask how long the building owners have had full control since handoff from developers. Three years+ is ideal for association to figure out right level of dues needed - or accept that dues may go up. Also ask how much they have in...

Re: At what point does DT become overbuilt with respect to Apartments

We are an older couple who want to move downtown--want to buy a condo or townhouse. But for some reason, the developers seem to think that all of these need to be "luxury" and have so many building amenities that the maintenance fees are way too high. We don't care about a pool. We don't c...

Re: Layoffs at The Star

Well, I asked for a full refund, plus the month of credit from last year that we were due. They are supposed to be crediting my credit card. I have no faith this will happen any time soon. The last time there was a billing issue, I was told that there is only 1 woman who works in billing and she is ...

Re: Layoffs at The Star

Is there anyone actually running this paper any more? I do not understand them at all. My Mom (elderly, I manager her affairs) has gotten 1 newspaper in over 2 weeks. This has been an on-going problem since she moved to the New Mark area. The account has been escalated to VP-level and they still can...

Love Pete and his innovative takes on down home food. The POur has become one of our favorite places now. The food is so fabulous and the prices just can't be beat!

Re: Layoffs at The Star

Thank you! Distribution problems have gotten so bad that I have seriously considered writing advertisers to tell them they are being mis-led about circulation figures. People can't see the ads if they don't get the paper. I handle the subscription for my elderly mother, as well as ours. In the past ...

If I understood the sign correctly the other day, we will be entering 35 south on the new ramp in a couple of weeks.
