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 care about ...

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 ...

Re: New construction near Sprouts/Cheddar's

Oooooh. I didn't realize that was called Shoppes at Shoal creek--since Shoal Creek is down where Sprouts is. That's great since that is closer to me and easier to get to. :-)

Re: Sprouts

We've gone there a couple times now. It won't be our primary grocery location, but we do like it. It is really good for their sales, but the stuff that isn't on sale is usually cheaper at Hyvee. It may just be the new factor, but so far each time we've gone it has been pretty packed. Ditto, though ...

Re: New Restaurants/Other Businesses in Northland

I have no idea about Falls at Crackerneck Creek (Who came up with that name?!?), but have to say that my husband does this, too. He considers anything north of I-70 to be "Northland" (We've only been here for 5 years, but you'd think he would get it by now.). I just roll my eyes at him...

Re: Topeka to lose skyline building

I don't think anyone who works in that building will be sorry. My sister and brother-in-law work there. They found bedbugs on the floor below them this week. It is always too cold or too hot. Something is always broken.

I think fewer people are having traditional funerals/burials due to the cost. I see more people just having private memorial services at a church, home or center.

Re: Costco

I belong to both Sam's and Costco. I live in Liberty. I almost never go to the new Sam's here--just doesn't seem to have as much as the one on N. Oak. Honestly, I'd rather drive to mid-town to Costco. It's only about 12 miles or so.

I love that this is a free world where we can all have and express our own opinions. :-) Think what a dull place it would be if we all thought and felt the same way.

Re: Flintlock Flyover is Open

Potential seller disclosures would include such things as leaky windows, noisy neighbors, major major construction, possible noise from motor vehicles and airplanes, or building development projects nearby.
