I would be mad too if appliances that were intended for others were stolen from my curb. That is wrong and should be stopped/punished.

But, as long as the scrappers/recyclers/scavengers are NOT leaving more of a mess than was already there why not reduce the amount of "trash" going to our landfills.

Should there be a "recycling" ordinance? I wonder what policies most major cities have concerning recycling.

What is your favorite Christmas movie?

I guess I should note that I voted for "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation", although "A Christmas Story", "Elf", and "The Polar Express" are high on my list too.

whoops, found the typo, meant to say thanks to the McCrary's! Probably have to do extra stairs for forgiveness!

Bulldog Days bounces back with return of free workouts

I had a great time participating in "Dog Days" this summer, even went enough times to receive a t-shirt. The workouts were challenging but you could go at your own pace. Can't Wait for next summer - going for Mighty Dog status! Thanks to the McCray's, BCRC, and Baker University!

Mediacom has done it again !

I have always paid a rental fee for my modem.
However, I am still waiting for my cable line to the house to be buried again. When I built my house in '01 I waited over 5 years to get it buried. When it was finally done, the independent contractor hit the siding on my house, for which I was given a calling card (gee thanks, who uses a calling card anymore?) Then, it turns out the line was nicked so when it rained I would lose service until it dried out. So, they came out to replace it and still haven't buried it .

when was the last time a tornado hit Baldwin City?

Another close call happened while I was going to Baker in the early 90's, one touched down just east of the 59/56 junction. You can still see the "break" in the tree line.

Column: Resolutions, predictions for 2011, oh my

Mr. Gillispie,
- I also play tennis, and I hope to make it a habit once the weather turns. I know there is a group that plays on Tues or Thurs (perhaps both) evening at the Baker courts, and they encourage all skill levels to participate. I just need the wife's permission.
- I have said to your before and will say it again, it's never too late to drop the Raiders and get on board with the Red and Gold. Although, I do think it is absurd to go undefeated in a division and not be considered the champs.
- Superbowl, can I even call it that legally? Um, Seahawks v. Chiefs, okay seriously, Eagles v. Steelers, I want to see Vick v. Polamalu!
- Oregon over Auburn 56-55.
- "Tiger" Woods and Lance Armstrong confess to using Performance Enhancing Drugs, not the bedroom variety.
- NASCAR revealed to be Professional Wrestling with wheels.
- I am not sure predicting a cross-country state title is a "bold" prediction. What a consistently great program! Hats off to them!
- My 2011 "bold" prediction - Royals lose 100 games, about to my breaking point with my favorite team.
- lastly, of course a Rock Chalk Jayhawk Final Four appearance!
