Re: Holy Shnikies! What’s wrong with that Marysville council candidate?

It’s still called Gratiot. The commercial district has certainly seen better days. There are some nicer prosperities along the river (take the cutoff from Busha Hwy). Many of the homes inland are fairly average. Port Huron’s homes seem to get worse the further away from the river you go, along with ...

Wow, if VerHagen can command that wipe-out curveball consistently as well as his fastball.... :!:
He's looked like a keeper his last few times out. :hat

The bottom will drop out. Even Nate Cornejo had two or three good starts.

Re: Can't Get WADL over Antenna

The stacker antennas (if it’s the one I am thinking of) are junk. A friend of mine replaced his old Channel Master with one, and reception was worse. Fewer channels and more dropouts.

Re: Fenech Banned

Chris Thomas - sports editor for the Free Press - finally offered a detailed explanation of the history between Verlander and Fenech. Assuming Thomas' portrayal is accurate, I'd have to say (i) JV is very paranoid and (ii) Fenech acted within reason in the performance of his duties. So, unless JV's...

Re: Dick move by Verlander and the Astros

We don’t know all of the details right now. Given what we know, so far, and based on the characters involved, I agree with MW and side with Verlander.

Of course the Detroit reporters are going to side with Fenech.

Re: Holy Shnikies! What’s wrong with that Marysville council candidate?

Marysville is mediocre in pretty much every way. No downtown. Gratiot has seen better days. It’s not a terrible place, but not great either. I considered buying investment property there at one point. Backed out due to a sudden personal financial issue at that time. Port Huron is a mix of beauty (ne...

Re: Fenech Banned

I love how all the sports reporter assholes are rallying around Fenech without even knowing the facts as to JV's beef. Also love how the Freep refused to take calls from JV's people not once, not twice, but at least three (!!!) times. The Freep loves to defend unethical staff, especially sports wri...

Re: City Shopping

Wichita itself is larger- almost 400,000. Add the suburbs, and they are pretty close to Toledo, maybe slightly larger. Like I said, not the most exciting place, but it has what you need. Vegas has several suburbs. The home prices were cheap when the crash hit. I am sure there are still some areas wh...

Re: City Shopping

Co Sprgs shouldn't get nearly as much as Denver. Lightning is impressive there, ok maybe just scary. I visited in the summer, not long after those wildfires years ago. The Springs is south, but also 1,000 feet higher than Denver. I don’t know if those factors cancel each other out. There are fears ...

Re: City Shopping

How far are you willing to move? You said you don’t like hot, so that rules out Phoenix, Las Vegas, etc. Wichita isn’t too exciting, but it has what you need and is a decent place to “settle down”. Have you given the Indianapolis area some thought? I wouldn’t touch Portland with a ten foot pole, unl...
