Not only ugly, but name on street sign is different than sign on building. Cheap looking andRead Moresloppy . Doesn't look like the kind of place I want to shop.

I agree the sign is ugly. I also agree with the person who said look to Winters for developmentRead Moregui dence. I grew up in Davis and moved to Winters in 1973. At that time it was just a small town that hadn't changed in years. I left there in 1978 with it still looking the same. But that can't be said anymore. Winters has done it right. A charming well planned community. Very attractive and a destination town today. Dixon hasn't changed since I was a kid. It lools almost exactly the same as it did in 1960. It has great potential being along side I-80 and could be a really interesting place to come to. I moved here in 2009 to be closer to my kids and quickly learned there is nothing here. To do anything I have to go somewhere else. Dixon is a bedroom community while all around Dixon towns are growing.

Our city counsel doesn't seem to be making the right choice for our town! First they decide toRead Morebuild a underpass which was extremely unnecessary just another place for crime to happen then they add another liquor store? Who is giving these people their jobs? We hire you to expect council to make the towns future brighter. There is no use for a liquor store in Dixon its a small town already what makes your think that 3 are needed. As a teenager struggling to find a summer job it would have been a huge blessing seeing a restaurant or a store that could give me the opportunity to apply for a job but now that cant happen because our great town council makes great decisions.

I have heard from original reliable respectable sources that Frederick Cohen the lawyer running for Read Morethe judge's bench is very corrupt performing official duties committing acts for which he has been sued multiple times. Charges of conspiracy, falsifying records, racketeering enterprise scheme are some accusations that Frederick Cohen has been charged and connected to in court records according to reports made public.

I understand, Martha. The dates of the stories are all right under the headlines, but the line-upRead Moreis tough to follow sometimes. I try to rotate top news to the top as best I can, but I understand your point. Perhaps the computer folks can resolve that someday ...

My apologies, Doris. Are you referring to the candlelight vigil? The story went up yesterday before Read Morethe event, but did not rotate down overnight as I expected it would. I'm sorry about that and was not happy, myself, to see that in the morning today.

You'll have to forgive him. I think only the Irish would know that, though. I've spent my wholeRead Morelife in journalism and we always spelled it with a "T" if we shortened St. Patrick because of the name with the T. After reading online more, I read several other places where the Irish are correcting us. I learn something new every day! Thanks for sharing--

Thanks, Debra. Yes, common mistake. Just made me laugh. Kiss me I'm Irish!

Pretty F'ed up when a guy like this is Citizen of the Year. Disgraceful really.. What the heck is Read Morewrong with that town?
MJ March 03, 2014 at 12:54 PM
Oh Jim, what's wrong with this town? Too much where would I begin...

No matter how it is spun, Dane "use my title as an elected official to provide a characterRead Morerefe rence for a convicted child abuser," Beasneatte is the Dixon Chamber of Commerce's "Citizen of the Year." With a Chamber like this, no wonder the only businesses coming to town are scams like that movie studio. It is a true embarrassment that our Chamber would select a person like Dane, who on this website was, rude, condescending and bullying as "Citizen of the Year." But it shouldn't be surprising, the Chamber has a $1 a year lease from the City. And Dane is on their Board and his wife is their Board President. It is truly disgusting, and we need to change this at the election time. But before that what we the people of Dixon can do is this: boycott any business which is a Member of the Chamber. Smart businesses would not support an organization which now endorses using a title as an elected official to provide a character reference for a child abuser, smart businesses would not support an organization which thinks that the kind of behavior Dane Beasneatte displayed Herr on this websit3--which was bullying, insulting arrogance--is reflective of a Citizen of the Year. Smart business people will start a different chamber with a different staff that actually does its job, and doesn't endorse Beasneatte's bullying. This is a total disgrace to Dixon!!!!l

http://www.gofundme.com/6bhrs4 Today my family was blessed with a 4000 dollar donation. ThisRead Moream azing blessing greatly reduces our stress. It doesn't cure all our issues but it is proof that the Lord will provide. In one weeks time the Lord has worked great strides. He has shown me and those close to this situation that thru faith no challenge or problem can Trump the almighty. Other than thanking our Lord I still must give thanks to those of you who have contributed thus far. Thank you for all your contributions both spiritual and financial. You have all truly been a blessing. I pray this mini success leads to greater things to come. Thank you all and blessings.      Good morning and happy February. Today I woke happy for the 1st time in many months praising the Lord for the blessings he sent thus far and prayed for continued provision. We don't want to as a family to end up back in this routine of homelessness. With what we have managed to obtain it helps knowing that when evicted from this shelter we won't be completely homeless but have some means to a have roof.       Initially when I imagined this campaign I had no idea we would make it this far. Further proof our Lord does hear prayers and answers. Since we have made it this far I must push forward. There are 2 situations in my family that need rectifying in order for us to succeed. One, is to find and secure a home. This seems like the priority above all else but my mind isin conflict. On the other hand our vehicle as of today is illegal. We must go thru the steps of catching up 4 payments to void an interstate repo, then transfer my wifes license, insurance, registration, etc. So the dilemma is take care of the vehicle issues preventing future legal issues or get a home. With the provision we have received we can not do both. So today's question is if you were us what would you do?       God bless you all, thank you for reading, and have a great weekend.
