Actually, Scrooge,, had the best ever Holiday!!! Don't need to diet (slim and trim I am.) Here's w/the name calling, Your attack on a very well-meant comment I (and others) made some time ago when you were giving hell and four letter words to the Poets. Saw you then for what you were with nothing better to do than argue & name call w/really nice strangers in pain and otherwise. You were cruel and horrifying & L0...Livesay pops up again, so I allowed myself 20 secs. to spend in your loathsome company. I think K-Mart has been gone a long time. Wouldn't know. I like my Macy's coupons, thanks. I do love the Dollar Store in Pleasant Hill (not in So.Hampton) to buy a candy bar when I go to the movies in my Donald J. Pliners. Bye Lunatic. (Oh, I won't be back) Frances

I grew up in Benicia, moved away and now I'm back after 23 years. Our household makes $110,000 a year. We shop at the Dollar Store and I drive to Winco in Vacaville every two weeks to get groceries. (I save $250 a month on average for groceries shopping at Winco) Benicia is way too expensive. Too expensive to grocery shop, go to the dentist, go out to dinner, etc. When I was in school here it didn't cost $250 for a kid to play sports, we didn't pay to park our cars at the highschool and the school buses drove us to school. We also didn't have 50 million Vallejo kids in our highschool. I welcome a Dollar Tree to Benicia. We are a family on a budget and we need more options in our town. Benicia residents need to come of their perch and realize that not everyone in this town is rich, some struggle more than others and Benicia is not too good for a Dollar Store.

Well stated TW. Why pay $5.00 for a birthday card, anniversary, or Christmas card when one can purchase them at a Dollar Tree for $1.00 or less.

Kudos to you TW well said... Benicia residents do need to come off there perch. Personally I am excited to see a Dollar Store coming to our beautiful town of Benicia and all you moms out there what a great way to put affordable snacks when it's your snack day for your children's sport activities.
