Community Mercantile outlasts competition and changing marketplace

The problem with the staff goes way back. The rudest comment I ever had from a Merc clerk happened at 7th and Indiana.

I long ago realized I was never going to meet the high standards of Merc workers. That's their problem not mine. It doesn't keep me from buying what I want, where I want: some items at the Merc and some elsewhere.

Sound Off: Will the Kansas University campus be open to through traffic Friday, which is Stop Day?

More likely a long-time resident, since the policy on this has varied (as the answer reflects).

Scot Pollard the basketball player spells his first name with only one "t." Either it's somebody else, or the document at the registry of deeds is in error (and then what does that mean?)

Sound Off: Do Knology employees who drive their trucks to/from their homes to work have special perm

+1 Not sure why pointing out a preventable cause of near-accidents is being called whining.

+1 absolutely. I'm baffled about why people don't seem to see a white turck with cones until they're right on it. Speeding is certainly one factor.

Not me, if that's what you think. Possibly more than one Knology worker prefers not to park in his driveway.

Honestly, I can't say how we'd react because we've never had a vehicle this large park on the street before (at least not for more than a few hours).

Speaking as someone whose neighbor parks his Knology truck on the street, may I point out that the trucks are wider than most cars and the cones add more width. We've seen some near accidents. Like the person who asked the original question, I wonder why he can't park in his (half-empty) driveway.

Town Talk: Tapas opens Mexican restaurant on Mass. Street; is permit parking on the way for Oread neighborhood?; talk of expanding rental licensing program continues; Landmark to buy Wellsville Bank

Still have no idea what I did to trigger this hostility, but be assured that this is my last comment of any kind on the Journal-World website. Life is too short to set oneself up for this kind of aggravation. Chad, I'm sorry I somehow set off this unpleasantness and I hope I didn't offend you personally in any way. I will still read you daily (town talk and articles).

Not sure who you have me confused with. I rarely comment here and what I do say is either neutral or light and jokey. This morning for example, I kidded Chad and he kidded me back (and Boston Corbett thinks he got the better of the exchange, which I admit is very possible). Surely nothing for you to get upset about. And, for what it's worth, Chad did say "king of Spain" and "Spanish king."
