whatif 1 year, 10 months ago on Conference center concept detailed in new proposal

Having lived here many years ago and moved back about 6 years ago, the difference I see is the people this time around will bite their nose to spite their face. It wasn't like that when I first lived here. And as one poster said the people here aren't friendly. They carry the native Jefferson City pride thingy to a fault. And I am not sure what they are proud of, only if they are native Jefferson Citians. I have been to several public affairs and I here this over and over and over and over -- this is how they introduce themselves. Best I stop here.

I am sorry if I gave that impression, but it certainly was not my intent. Worded poorly I admit. My frustration comes from lack of tolerance toward any religion. I have been to many different religious ceremonies and have enjoyed them. And after reading all of these opinions, I still fail to see why we make such a stink about religion. What are people afraid of? Isn't religion what started most of our wars? Is it not religion that separates us from embracing each other? And for what - in the end it is not going to matter one way or the other. It seems to me people worry too much about the small stuff, and I say small only in the context we make mountains out of molehills. It seems there is always somebody wanting to stir the pot. If I were at a function where prayer was offered and I did not have such a belief system I would listen intently and maybe gain something from it and just love all. We can argue these points till the cows come home and when all is said and done we are still right back where we started from. So what was really proved - how combative we can be. Simple minded - yes, I will accept that comment as a compliment..... Namaste

Sorry, but I think he is issuing a warning, not tending to our business, as he also including other states. Don't think this is a bad thing but a good thing as we all need to pay attention to what is going on around us.

Okay, so why should the U.S. bend over backwards to make sure nobody is offended because of their religion/beliefs/life style that come into this country. Why can't they respect our way as it has always been. And as far as the discrimnation point - do you really believe that by taking out prayer/ten commandments is going to change any persons opinion/beliefs or how they conduct business - excuse me but I don't even see that happening. After all what do these people expect if we were to move to their country or even visit their place of worship -- do you really think they are going to change their ways for us. I have no problem with people from other countries moving to the US, I really do appreciate diversity, but to expect to change it to what they left. I want to wish everybody a Merry Christmas not Happy Holidays and if they have a problem with that that is their problem not mine. If they want to wish me greetings of their origin I would have no problem with that. I respect their differences as I would expect them to accept and respect mine. When in Rome do as the Romans do.....

OH MY GOSH!!!!! With all that is going on around us, crime, drugs, texting while driving, child abuse, and the list goes on, and this is all this person has to complain about -- who is this hurting and how? It is beyond my comprehension how anyone can be so petty, let alone heartless to only think of themselves. If this is affecting anyone negatively, then they have personal problems beyond a prayer. Ooops, just figured it out, they need praying for.

whatif 1 year, 10 months ago on City looks to gauge interest in conference center

I put out my trash out maybe once a month, prior to this deal I could buy 10 trash bags for $14.95 which would last me at least 6+ months, now it costs me $49+ every three/four months at a cost of 147.00/196.00 per year which before it only cost me less than $50.00 a year. I'm all for recycling. Even before the city offered it I took my recycables to recycling collection centers. I have never lived anywhere that charged so much and still offered recycling. I don't know about you, but for me this is a big deal. I even compost so I do my share and then some. But its costing me triple. There were a lot of other people in the same situation.

I think they meant "gouge". Who is behind this convention center idea besides those in the article. There must be some driving force for it to continuely be considered over and over and over and on it goes. Do these people not get the picture? Maybe they hope we will tire of it and ignore further gauging efforts so they can move in and do as they please. WATCH OUT PEOPLE!!!! They are up to something and I'm guessing it will be like the trash debacle.
