I think I will go back to using checks at stores and cash at gas stations. I found a gas station inRead More Eagle Rock that gives a discount for using cash and generally buy my gas there. Not as convenient as using a debit card but I had to cancel my card after using it at Target right before Christmas. What a hassle.

I've started using cash more in the past year for grocery and gas. It's simplified bill paying,Read More reducing the number of credit card receipts that need to be reconciled with statements! Though I still like the 5% discount from using my Target card and the cash back bonus from Discover. Anyway gotta have a good reason now for using my credit cards, either buying online (necessity then) or some reward incentive.

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!

Mark, Your words are absolutely disgusting. Please do not use this comment thread as a vehicle toRead More spew your racist mentality. And for your information, food-borne illnesses come from agriculture, period. All around the world, including in the U.S. Lastly, your hatred for people of colour does not mean that you understand disease, at all. Good luck in life.

i think those are overrated, but among the better ones...it WAS a rather strange assortment ofRead More places. quite an eclectic list.
Paul Gudnason April 2, 2014 at 07:31 am
The list includes two chain restaurants and doesn't include West?? Both of West's restaurants shouldRead More have been on this list but it IS based on Yelp ratings.

Poor headline. It's not up 7 percent, it's up to 7 percent!

Yet again extremely poor writing in the Patch. So weird and annoying.

They will settle and end up paying only $50,000/each. It always happens. There's a reason they oweRead More that much in taxes.

The Most Practical Economist In America (me) believes that it is criminal to have another person'sRead More property, and keep it. Theft, and/or embezzlement, or something else should be addressed in criminal court. Sales Tax means that their customers actually gave them the money, but the business owner converted the money to their own personal accounts instead of forwarding same to its rightful owner. Regardless of how much they pay back, jail time is appropriate.

Do you supposed that our legislators will not enact laws against this crime because they plan to hitRead More the crooks up later for campaign donations?
glenn bernard March 4, 2014 at 10:55 am
All of those cities sending reps to an Economic forum…..the only possible good news theyRead More could contribute is that they will no longer collect any taxes for anything, and return to the halcyon days of the 1950's where the closest government entity was that of San Diego County. How 'bout that new police chief in the City of San Diego!!??? She is actually simultaneously collecting excessively high pay and excessively high retirement pay even though her retirement is a few years off!! How can somebody claim to the poster child for law-and-order while milking a corrupt and absurd pay package? Only Government could find a way to make white collar crime legal.

Now just one more similar headline is needed……"Carlsbad City Hall is prohibitedRead More from spending tax dollars on Art and/or on any Art-related activity." (I support Art Education and Music Education in the public schools….along with everything else they teach).

I wish that when you write about a new place, besides giving the address, which really doesn't tellRead More me much about where on Palmoar it is....how about giving more specific information...i.e. is it in a group of other places (outlets, Costco, Lowes?)...is it east of ECR?, or ? thanks.

It's in the Lowe's shopping center.

The Refinishing Touch February 5, 2014 at 10:16 am
The Blue Sea Beach Hotel is set to embark on a renovation journey this spring and we’reRead More looking forward to seeing it unfold. When revamping facilities with a large amount of guest rooms such as this, many considerations should be carefully taken into account. Bypassing the purchase of new furniture assets can cut-costs, improve sustainability and meet any government regulations that may be in effect. Furniture asset management, in the form of refinishing, reupholstery and remanufacturing, does all of this and more. We hope to see it utilized in this project – best of luck to all!
