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.

@richard B. I so hope you are wrong. Not being a fan of meijer for a quick trip to the groceryRead More store and hating Wallmart as a whole I really want a small grocery store in there. I miss Dominicks a ton.
Katfish Jonze April 20, 2014 at 10:43 pm
If one of the other chains (Whole foods, Mariano's, Tony's, Cermak, Caputos) it would of happenedRead More already. Unfortunatly that area is already flooded with grocery stores Wallymall, Meijer, and Jewel. It's gonna be hard to fill it.

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 totally agree with you!!!!! At first I thought I just couldn't open it on my tablet. Even sentRead More them a message. I never even considered you had to print and mail. Unbelievable!!!
Laure VanAsselt April 18, 2014 at 07:17 am
They fixed it! I just took the survey on my tablet.and was able to "submit".

Actually, the better the economy, the fewer people shop at dollar type stores. Makes sense.

Anyone but Phillips Chevrolet. I got screwed at Phillips. I picked-out a truck, put down a $200 cashRead More deposit and came back the next day to find they sold my truck to someone else. Cheeseballs.
Interested resident April 2, 2014 at 09:01 am
That is a shame Lenny Kravitz. I'm sorry to hear that. The patch says Fallon will buy the truckRead More for the rep (in quotes). My understanding is that he is going to buy a truck from the rep. He said last Friday night that he didn't want to make it that easy for the sale.

Question Lenny Kravitz; Did you get your $200. back?

Who cares what reddit commenters said about it? What did potential employers say about it????

Only 4 percent of adults and 4 percent of children suffer peanut allergies ...

If someone was allergic to nuts they would not be able to be on this board lol!

Isn't Cindy against swearing? Hypocritical too!!!! Politics may be the answer for her.

Hello hello hello is there anybody in there? Just nod if you can hear me, is there anyone home?
Beth March 27, 2014 at 08:38 pm
Cindy perhaps you should check out the local chapter of al-anon. Slogans like "live and letRead More live" and focusing on yourself might be helpful to you, and you can also learn from people who truly have been affected by alcoholism, much much different than casual wine drinking.
Jordan S. Zoot March 5, 2014 at 02:49 pm
Given all of the things I have to worry about today I am sure glad that tainted nuts isn't one ofRead More them.
Oliver P. McCracken March 6, 2014 at 09:33 am
I thought folks were complaining that The Patch no longer had an editor? If there is no editor, thenRead More who deleted my nuts-&-taint-tainted remark?
