Greenville wants to build elevated rapid transit system

At first it sounds implausible, and it just may be, but a Greenville County-affiliated board has asked for bids to build a personal rapid transit system filled with tiny, futuristic-looking electric podcars on an elevated line that could stretch across 20 miles to connect high-traffic locations in Greenville. At least two Greenville County councilmen believe it’s going to happen. And soon. Four companies said they plan to file a proposal to design, build and privately finance the system, which, if built, would become one of five in use in the world. The immediate plan would likely cost north of $50 million to build a 4.2-mile line off Laurens Road from Verdae Boulevard to East Washington Street.

Perhaps that was a response to this event? Maybe the screen was trying to protect you.

Not too many years ago I thought it amazing that one in ten Americans lived in California. Now, it's down to almost one in eight. 
The state, along with much of the West, has gone through worse dry spells lasting decades. Development and climate change complicate predictions.

Reading this makes my head hurt. 
In The Wall Street Journal, Eva Moskowitz, writing about Mayor Bill de Blasio’s plan for New York City schools, says that if student A’s fist ‘impacts’ student B, they don’t need ‘to dialogue.’ Student A needs to be disciplined.

Good thing they got this desperado. You start letting 3rd graders pull this and by 4th grade they'll be hardened criminals. They are recommending expulsion and didn't even call the parents. "The school principal notified parents Tuesday using the automated telephone calling system." http://www.greenvilleonline.com/…/rd-grader-expel…/25839811/

Feature Five Forks SC neighborhood: Ravenwood | Absolute Storage LLC News

Ravenwood is a neighborhood in the Five Forks area of Greenville County South Carolina. It is near Mauldin and Simpsonville.

I bought a new battery online, jump started my car to get to this location and they installed it for free. It was actually cheaper to buy it online because there was an online-only discount. There was a core charge which gets refunded when you turn in the old battery. Since they installed it, they knew they had my old battery and refunded the core charge automatically without me having to do anything. Perfect.

I called the 800 number a few weeks ago and asked how much they'd give me for a 1996 Ford Probe. No body damage and no real mechanical problem. It's just been sitting for 12 months. They offered me $350. I thought that was okay but the title was in my son's name, they said he needed to be there in person and he couldn't get away from work. So we transferred the title to my name. I called the same 800 number back and was offered $150. Um. I don't think so.

I was not at all concerned about the nominal $2.00 admission charge that seems to annoy other reviewers. I will say, however, that I didn't see that on the website. They should disclose that online so it's not a surprise. You bring your own tools to pull your own parts. Be prepared to have your toolbox searched. I didn't mind but some people seem to. The other thing that they should disclose on their price list is the "environmental fee". I paid $3.50 for that but I don't know if it's a flat fee or depends on the purchase price. The price list on the website did disclose the core charge but I needed a tailgate and didn't have one so this is part of the price. It's unclear to me what they would do with a broken or dented tailgate if I had one. Core charges at most parts stores are for things like alternators which can be rebuilt. One more negative: The cars and trucks are only loosely grouped according to model and type of car. I'd expected some kind of grid showing, say, that the Chevy S-10 I was looking for was in "B-12" or other designated square. Nope. It's a big lot and I spent an hour just finding a suitable Chevy S-10. Fortunately, it was a bright dry day. I don't think I would want to be on that unpaved lot after a big rain. The website shows what cars and trucks are in their inventory but there is no way of knowing before you look if they still have the part you are looking for attached or if a previous customer pulled it off already. On a positive note, the guys who worked there were friendly and polite. For all of my minor complaints, I still give it a 4 out of 5. That's because I would rather go pull my own part than have someone do it for me - or lie and say it's unavailable because they don't feel like doing it for some nickel and dime item. Salvage yards are not known for their customer service. And the prices are good compared to the alternatives that I know of. Make sure you ask them to mark your part for return. You have 30 days to return a part if it doesn't fit but only if the part is marked. LKQ isn't perfect but I'll be back the next time I need a savlage part for one of our cars or truck.

Tried this for the first time last night. I liked the look of the inside. Not fancy but attractive and comfy. There were a couple of things I really liked about the food. A lot of Mexican restaurants don't worry at all about presentation. I've grown accustomed to too much food swimming in a pool of too thin frijoles. Tequilana served us food that was the right amount, not too little or too much, and it looked fabulous, as if it was prepared for an ad shoot. I was surprised that they don't offer traditional pinto beans. Not a problem for me since I prefer the black beans they served us, but my wife slightly prefers pinto beans. The only thing I didn't like was the chips. They were a very unusual hard texture and felt stale. I don't think they were, but they have a way of preparing them that makes them unlike anything I've had elsewhere and I didn't like them as much, although that didn't stop me from eating them. The best part was the service. She struck just the right balance between too little attention and too much. I didn't get her name, but my receipt says the cashier was Yassi so perhaps that her name. We'll be back.
