This is great effort but is still behind the times and now may cause more waste into our landfills.
The recycling at safeway is full the day it is put out. It's quite obvious that many business's are taking large quantities there especially cardboard and it is filling up within hours. Now that waste management is charging for drop off recycling this will only cause more of a mess at the green machines and more waste in the landfills. I understand charging for a pick up service like our trash but charging the community to drop off recycling in now 2014 is going backwards and will only create more waste. I had the chance this yr to use the recycling at the ski area and just dont understand why Stmbt has some of the worst recycling guidelines around.
Most of the recycling I saw was already in plastic trash bags and then tossed into the recycling bin. From what I have known for years is that plastic bags (gocery bags, garbage bags, etc.) are not to be put into the recycling yet people keep doing it. The ski area is by far the worst I have seen. The recycling bin under gondola square is full of them. Plastic bags can be taken to most grocery stores for recycling. Recycling material must be loose when put into recycling containers and not in a garbage bag and then thrown in. That is not recycling, that is now trash.
Will always miss haveing it a block away from home in OC.
Yay for Cheleas, although I am not excited about your new location. There are few great functions held there because of the large banquet rooms but most locals cant stand the Gand Plummet due to how it originated and built through ASC and how they treated Stmbt.
I will be courious to see how the rent will reflect the prices. Hope it doesnt become an expensive special occasion kind of place. Cant get enough of those tasty egg rolls and dan dan noodles..
It does suprise me that the USSA is dropping funding in an event that we medaled in 4 yrs ago.
We have also done quite well in the national and world events where the European and Japanese have dominated since forever. Now that the Americans are showing great promise they loose funding....Pretty Crappy!!!
We need to do better in the jumping field. That is what hurt us at Sochi. We jumped great in Vancouver giving us a great start for the sprint.
Poor jumping in Sochi put us to far back in the sprint line up against great sprinters.
Almost imposible to come back from that distance.
We have a world known jump hill in our back yard so jumping should be our stong suit but we seem to struggle there.
Great effort for all of them. Nordic Combined is one of the most difficult and grueling winter events. Hope to see most of them back in Soul. :~)
We had one. From what I understand they couldnt afford rent in central park and closed down. There is a small one in Craig.
Something like a Panera would probably do quite well here with Stmbts demographics although the building may be to big..
When natural gocers was put here I always thought that it should have been a whole foods instead. It is a much better style store for a town like this. I would rather see that then any other box chain store and the building is to small for most others.
Maybe it should stay vacant for a while so a real plan can be put into place that fits the demographics of Stmbt.
Just another park to give up to tripple crown for most of the summer..(LOL)
But realisticly a parking structure makes great sense. We have had a parking issue forever downtown and talk about metered parking is something I hope we avoid. A 2-3 level parking garage would alleviate some of the stress and it would be centraly located.
I coudnt agree with you more Robyn. This gives the seller a chance to perform a long term test at a much less cost providing a more accurate reading. Short term tests are a base average usually performed by a home inspector for the buyer of a home. Both tests need to be done in a closed house environment (all HVAC to home should be turned off, all windows closed, no fans on and unit should be placed in an undisturbed area at the lowest habital spot in home).
A long term test is a must if home will be somewhat distubed.
Beware of any company that performs radon testing along with mitigation.
It is a conflict of interest and could cost you uneccessary $.$$$
If mitigation is needed, the average cost is usualy anywhere from $800~$2000
