Town Talk: Honoring firefighters, renovating Dillons

Chad- on a totally separate development issue...has anything more been said about Freebirds moving into the old Maurice's bldg on Mass? Last I'd heard last summer was they were going before the historic committee to propose changes to the building. We NEED our Freebirds fix without having to drive to JoCo (yecch!) Please advise... :)

Town Talk: Kwik Shop plans to rebuild store at 19th and Mass.; hobby shop on 23rd closes amid tax problems; loan program for Douglas County businesses raises $63k

Randy- I often had the same experience. I figured it was just a lack of funds to be able to restock, not that I would expect Roger to admit that to the public. But yes the response was always the same..."we had a big rush, just sold out"...yada yada.

With that said though, I would much prefer to frequent a small business (non-chain) owner than a "box store". Don't get me wrong- I'm not anti-WalMart or anything of that nature, but if I can help out the little guy, I will certainly try to do so.

Try Sweet! on Mass.(717 Mass) They have a location in Topeka and just opened this one a few months ago. Pretty good selection of supplies and an awesome classroom area!

Town Talk: Dunkin Donuts to open by mid-November; KDOT doing survey on tolls for SLT; rumblings of new downtown businesses

thanks! I figured it had to be some sort of grocery type store.

isn't there a new turn lane in front of Anderson's? And I don't think that you can exit onto/enter from 6th at the DD parking lot. Now for those folks wanting to continue north on Michigan, that could be a little dicey once you've cleared the intersection at 6th.

Can anyone tell me what is going in at the spot where the old Burger King was at on 23rd? It looks like a SunFresh store kinda, but I'm sure that's not the case...

Tennessee firefighters let home burn down after owner didn't pay $75 fee

I too am not an attorney, but like so many others here- I have an opinion on your comment.

I would think that by the homeowner or resident calling the fire department/911, that would show an intent to have services rendered by the fire department. By showing that intent, they would be verbally contracted to pay for the services requested-even after the fact. This should be enough for the fire department/city to have claim to file a lien against the property if they were not paid for their service. Again, I'm not an attorney, so maybe there is a loophole here I am not aware of.

I also wonder- is there not some sort of hippocratic-type oath for public servants as well? I mean if a doctor were to refuse to render assistance to someone in emergent need- society as a whole would be asking for their head on a stake, not to mention what the medical board would do to them. Why is it not the same in this situation? I agree that folks need to pay their bills and do so timely, but in a situation that it seems the city would be able to protect their interests on, how can they defend their decision to "let 'er burn" as the right one?
