I don’t normally respond to things like this but cannot help it for this one.  To the person who was peeved that Publix put 6 items in 6 plastic bags and you should have said something but that is how they are trained. REALLY?? You should be concerned about all the plastic. Publix will give …

I’m all for groups to use the park. In the beginning rocks were painted with nice sayings on them & placed where you could find them. Loved that. I was walking our beautiful new trail & styrofoam plates with cut out sayings were pasted on them, it does not break down after the wind s…

Thumbs down to the poor sport parent booing heroically on Monday night at the East Lincoln Rec League basketball game. It’s okay to disagree with a call but totally inappropriate to loudly boo the 10 year old child shooting free throws. It’s parents like you that give youth sports a bad name.

Are we going to allow our area to be overgrown with new neighborhoods to the point that traffic just stands still. Looks like DOT and Lincoln County would get ahead of the growth and 4 lane Hwy. 73. We have enough growth now with the Lake, Business, new neighborhoods and a Nuclear Plant with…

Enough with the turkey necks already! If I’m buying my turkey by the pound please do not include the useless part which was cut off to kill the bird in the first place. Aside from a few neck nibblers and gravy makers we’re all tossing the neck in the garbage can.

I went to the craft fair expecting to see exactly that : crafts. Yet, as I walked through , I was bombarded with various multi-level sales pitches and pushy sales people promoting their businesses. This was very annoying. Can something be done to keep the craft fair just that ? ...a CRAFT FAIR.

Read in the Denver paper where more traffic lights are being planned for Business 16! They can’t regulate ones we have now! Take them down and let side street traffic work their way in.  Traffic would move so much quicker. Guess Denver’s not on their radar to look into such things, though.

What is wrong with you??? You entered the arena of national debate and division by publishing a one sided opinion of an angry black man who believes our community is racist. Our community is one of faith, kindness, generosity, tolerance and respectful of all people. Instead of this man takin…

Peeved - 1) In general, I am a not pro stop light, but one thing Denver must have is more stoplights on old 16. People have to be able to get out on the road safely. 2) Drivers please stop pulling out and driving down the turning lane before you kill someone. I promise if you count 30 second…

I’m peeved at people who have not noticed the new 35mph limit on Club Drive by Cowan’s Ford Golf Club. 50 is not acceptable. It’s not only breaking the law but it’s distracting when I’m in the middle of my back swing. It may cause me to slice a ball toward your car from the 3rd tee.

I see a least a dozen times a week where neighbors cut the grass and flies into the road. Up and down Killian Farm Rd. From Hwy. 73 to Hwy. 16. This is what we call rednecks. You live in a $300,000+ homes. Have respect for your neighborhood.

So, little miss Audi driver, how’d that tailgating work out for you on 16? I was the guy in the red pickup truck who you apparently think is number 1 after your little gesture! Your immature hothead maneuver really made me laugh, does hubby know you drive that way?

What is Lincoln County up to hosting a solar farm discussion?   The county already has in place new rules governing solar farm installations.  There is no need to discuss the attributes of solar farm energy as a clean energy, agreed.   The discussion is ‘billed’ as  providing “unbiased infor…

People should not drive their golf carts on the reads in Westport. It is very dangerous as well illegal. Makes it worse that young kids are driving these carts. Someone in the future will get hurt or killed.

Learning which side of the road to walk or ride a bike on MIGHT help some folks not to be hit when doing either of those things.  It MIGHT keep you safer.  If you are walking, you walk FACING traffic - look for the cars to come towards you.  If you are on a bicycle, you ride LIKE the traffic…

It’s cruel to whet our appetite with Elle’s Kitchen rhubarb pie recipe when rhubarb is so hard to grow here and good quality is hard to find in stores. I’m lucky my Iowa mom packs a small cooler of her rhubarb crop each year and sends it to me. There is nothing like good rhubarb delicacies!

To the peeved citizen that lumps all "transplants" together, maybe you should try talking to newcomers instead of judging them, the "northerners" I know, also are opposed to incorporation.

If we are incorporating can we change the name? I've never met anyone who actually liked the name Denver. Catawba Springs would be nice.
