On Janesville Ground Round closes doors
lindaf....that is correct - there was a CVS by Logli's that closed. There was an explanation in an article in the Gazette last fall, but I don't remember what it said regarding the building of a new one when the old one failed.
frusion: CVS Pharmacy.
ChsMkr: they tore up the area around the Damon's building with the intention of moving the building's entrance from the side of the building (facing Fuddruckers) to the front of the building (facing Hwy 14). That work had already started....the mold issues that may require the building to be razed just came to light within the last few days...I'm guessing through the process of tearing down interior walls to make the entrance remodeling changes.
On Janesville high school students to have longer days
Verotika, your daughter fell victim to the rumor mill. And common sense would question that anyway.
The new school day, under this proposal, will be 7:45 - 3:20, 20 minutes longer (Gazette says 10, but I think that's a typo) than the current school day. On Tuesdays, school will start at 8:05.
Class times and and lunch period are being shortened by a few minutes to accomodate the additional class period. Seriously, I think everyone is over-reacting....the change is far less dramatic than the drama being created on this news blog.
On Tensions between bicyclists, drivers
jcommon, I have no problem sharing the "multi-purpose" trail with hikers or dog walkers, even during May 15-September 15 when the dogs are specifically prohibited within the trails in the City of Janesville. It's when the dog walkers are inconsiderate of the others using the trail that I get a little ticked off. But I certainly do have an issue sharing the trail with ATV's since they are motorized vehicles and certainly NOT allowed on the trail!
Billace22...I have had the same issue. Warning that I am "passing on the left" seems to create more hazards sometimes than just passing with no warning.
My favorite spring/summer/fall exercise (weather permitting) is a bike ride in the morning before I start my day. I go out early enough that most of the crazies aren't out driving yet, and most of my ride is on the bike path. But even the bike path intersects with city streets at certain points and I always have to be extra careful. On Tuesday this week, I was crossing Wright Road, where the bike path crosses at the Wright Road/Hwy 14 stop lights. I crossed with the pedestrian light, but the lady driving on Wright Road, wanting to turn right onto Hwy 14, actually SPED UP to get to the stop sign ahead of me so that she wouldn't have to wait for me to cross in front of her. Instead, I had to go around her with my bike as she blocked the crosswalk. This isn't the first time this lady has done this to me. My other pet peeve is the dog-walkers on the bike trail who let their dogs walk on the opposite side of the trail so that the leash is extended all of the way across the bike trail. Some will retract the leash when they see me coming, but others pretend not to notice me until I have no choice but to leave the paved trail and go around them in the grass. I always look forward to May 15th when I don't have to share the trail with dog walkers anymore...sadly, there are A LOT of dog owners in Janesville that don't obey that ordinance. If you are going to break the law by walking your dog on the bike trail when it is prohibited to do so, please have some courtesy for those of us who just want to enjoy a nice bike ride.
On What makes rabies vaccines important
Another thing that is obviously ignored by the majority of pet owners in the City of Janesville? City licenses. I obtained the city licenses for both of my cats in late February. When I got the tags, they were numbered in the low 300-range (they are issused sequentially). That means that almost two months into the licensing process, there were less than 350 cats licensed in the City of Janesville. That is a ridiculous number. It is a city ordinance that cats and dogs be licensed. If you are going to be a responsible pet owner, then assume ALL of the costs of pet ownership and buy a license!
On Wrestling those big blue trash bins
wiswoman, the city's website says that the carts (all of them, regardless of whether you ordered the smaller one or not) will be delivered by April 28th. So possibly they haven't reached your neighborhood yet?
After a few weeks, many of you will find that the "large" size container is not as big as you think it is. We received our containers during the first week of delivery. Since we didn't have room in our garage for the new containers and the old ones that we had been using, we got rid of the old ones. We started putting our recyclables in the new container (to accumulate until next week when we can put it at the curb) and used the trash container for our trash. Since we can't put the trash one out at the curb until next week, we simply grabbed the bags out of the container and put them at the curb. After just three weeks (which is just one week longer than what the recycling schedule is) our 95-gallon recyclables container is full (good thing our recyclables are collected next week) and we had to put some of our otherwise recyclables in our trash this week. Our household is just 2 adults most of the time...with an occasional visit from my 25 y/o son. We aren't a heavy trash household....these containers don't hold as much as you think they do.
On The tax man cometh; are you ready?
frogger....he specifically said his investments that he gets taxed on were NOT part of a 401(k).
