    Yes it's great that Dane Tidwell is safe and sound! When people go missing, many times the outcome isn't great! Unfortunately, in this case it seems that this man just took a sabatical from his downward spiraling life! Some people have to live with drama in their life and play the victim card so people feel sorry for them! I feel sorry for the 6 landlord's this deadbeat screwed out of rent and legal fees. A disgrace to the gay community and all of man kind!

  • Chip Bagg ... ->-<- ...

    I read the article about Dane Tidwell.
    He and his "boyfriend" had not paid their rent for a YEAR.
    They got evicted.
    And he is a big time publisher?
    Something here doesn't add up in MY checkbook.
    In the end, given the choice between friends and money,
    CHOOSE MONEY.
    George Bailey's friendships did not bail him out of trouble.
    The townfolk's MONEY did.
    Would someone give Feliz directions to the Green Gate Compassion Center?
    Please?

1600 block Farwell labs and their owner

How does everyone handle the "neighbor" who feels its ok for his 4 labs to be off of their leashes and attack dogs who are walking by? It's a constant problem and this guy never seems to get fined or anything! The dogs are insane and extremely territorial. When they are locked up behind the gate, they consistently try to jump the fence.

This morning, all 4 of them came running at me and my two dogs on the sidewalk. I was stuck in the middle of a pack while they were attacking/biting mine. He was just like "sorry".

  • KMQ New to the Uptown Sound

    If a dog is attacking me or my dog, I will use anything I can against it: sticks, pepper spray, bullets, whatever. If people can't keep their dogs on a leash, and it comes towards me in an aggressive manner, then it/they will suffer the repercussions.
