That wouldn't have been a threat of any sort, now would it, alleycat?

"Oh wonderful, liquor stores to remain open longer...just what we need...more drunks on the streets longer."

Actually, longer hours will cut down on DUII. It is why I am pushing for the sale of liquor to be privatized and available in regular stores as well. When you have someone that gets off work late or works an off-shift that gets out later, what do they do when they want to have a drink after work? They go to the bar. Many people would be more likely to stop by the store and pick up something to take home if the option were available to them. Most DUII's are due to people leaving businesses that serve alcohol, not driving after having a drink at home.

Have you noticed? Another problem with going to the Facebook comments is that when a Facebook page is deleted or comments are deleted from a personal Facebook page, it deletes the comments from the Columbian. All of the comments from "Just Say No to Farrell House Event Center" are now gone from the Columbian because they deleted that Facebook page, and when a reply to a comment from Jon Russell was posted he didn't like, he deleted his own comment from his personal page, thus deleting that comment and the reply from the Columbian.

So far the Facebook log-in is working better than I expected. Sure hope you all eventually give it a chance. Thanks.!

Really? Yes, I know I said that would be my last comment, but, really? Controversial articles and opinion pieces, once loaded with comments, now none. The Greg Jayne blog post on the County Commissioners re: the contract with the Bears would have been loaded with comments. Now, none.

It appears to me that the only comments you are getting of any number are on the articles about converting to facebook comments.

This is what you expected? Really?

It looks as though they have deleted all the previous comments on the articles. This is my last comment, and I suppose that many others will be lost as well. So much for community dialogue, Columbian.

Commissioners balk at baseball contract

"Rejecting the advice of their own attorney.." That says a lot right there, doesn't it.

At least you, E Terrific and I can agree on something...will wonders never cease....

Commissioners balk at baseball contract

It's not economically feasible, and Vancouver's not really a viable sports town

mrdennmann — May 31, 2011 at 3:15 p.m.

Amateur sports are going lights out in this area. New fields for the kids are being built as we speak. Vancouver IS a viable sports town. Paying 70% for a facility that will be used 70% by the public is appropriate, and the entertainment tax pays for the bonds, not the facility, which allows for no surprises for additional costs to the taxpayer. Tournaments come to areas that have the facilities to meet their needs. With them, come participants, their families, and fans that bring money into the community.

As noted in another thread, 4,300+ fans on average no longer have a baseball team in Portland. If we can even bring a third of those here, we have half of the 2,800 expected average attendance for the pro baseball team right there.
