  • What's with the Signage?
    I am wondering what is up with the signage on the segment of the mall over the road... It seems like they had been working feverishly on it before Thanksgiving, and now it's dead in the water.... When I saw workers grinding at the metal lattice work, I suspected that there was a disconnect between the designer, contractor and signage fabricator... best laid plans 'o mice and men.
    • waiting...
      There is no disconnect. From what I understand the original pieces for that location were on a truck that crashed and so they are waiting on new fabrication. Simple as that. Will look very cool!
    • Planet Fitness
      I would kill for a Planet Fitness to open downtown. While I love my gym, $10 a month would make me jump ship in a heartbeat.
    • Mall Signage
      They suspended work over the road at the mall to minimize disruption of traffic during the holidays. They stated that they would resume work in January.

    1. Uh, sorry Johnnie, but you are incorrect. Despite the assertions by yourself and various defenders and captains, sports attendance is NOT off significantly at most sporting events in the US. Variances in attendance has been in the range of single digits, both + & - for years now. MLB has had most of its best overall attendance nubers in the last decade, and that trend has been consistent for most major sporting events. The number one issue cited by most fans when asked about attendance is the overall cost of attending. The presence of HD and big screen televisions in home doesn't even register, as a factor for not attending an event. VALUE in the product is the key, and apparently is something lacking in the current ICS. What other explanation is there when with what is routinely touted as the "best" racing on the planet, fans are staying away in DROVES. A "close" title battle into the last event at Fontana, with the "cars and stars" of the ICS, and who showed up? MAYBE 8K. Sorry, but HD TV isn't to blame for that kind of fan apathy.

    3. If she was worth the $ the public outcry over direct tv dropping them would have kept them on their dishes as we have seen with other companies. I too quit watching channel 13 after she showed up since I left channel 8 because of her all show rather than production results. When Randy on 8 corrected her she had a big head and incorrectly challenged his correction for pronunciation of a city. Other antics while she matures was too much for me with her very inaccurate forecasts. All the forecasters were predicting rain until Thursday except Chris. They predicted sunny on Thursday but instead of rain until Thursday upon which the sun would finally make it out in full glory Chris was right on the money just as I too predicted looking at the radar on weather.gov. One thing I love about Angela is the fear you can see in her every time it thunders in the winter. It far exceeds the entertainment value of her body language (high heel noise drags, depression, etc) when her forecasts are so incorrect. Her hair stands on end, you have to see it!!!
