Some Questions For Readers

While I am searching for more information, just a few questions for the usual readers.

Kroger wants to provide more selection in their Chevy Chase market, yet The Fresh Market and Trader Joe's can bring in great selection and variety without exceeding to 70,000square foot floor plan.  Why is that?  Go check out the competition for  yourself.

EKU has begun a "Farm to Campus" program to supply more local Kentucky Proud products, yet the University of Kentucky, the flagship, land grant institution, built to train our states farmers wishes to "outsource" their food service.  Does this make sense?

If folks are driving less (for the fifth year in a row) and auto pricing is rising (as well as the length of financing required to buy), does it make sense to fund newer, wider highways rather than transit?

Does anybody have better suggestions?

This is what happens when you open the comments section to every anonymous spammer who comes along. I need to be on my toes more now.

Good idea in theory. But, we, as a largely suburban community, will never get rid of the notion that parking needs to be abound and at the front door. I ride local transit nearly every day. Bus stops are immediately on the highway or sometimes in grassy shoulders. We need to revamp the idea of local transit and give riders a sense of dignity. I have always thought that LexTran should begin a foundation type "Friends of Lextran" etc to help build non-essentials like updating bus-stops, benches, shelters, public art, improving the look/feel/cleanliness of transit center and more.
