they don't want much, do they? and I didn't see even a whisper of starting salary in there.

I'm confused. Who doesn't want much?

I used to live in Indy and I haven't been able to remember the name of a grocery store for months. I was finally about to ask here and as I started typing it came to me: "Mr. D's".

Stop 11 and Madison. I lived in the Creek Side South apartments just east of there.

It wasn't at all important that I remember that, but it was REALLY bugging me that I couldn't.

Thom-E, that is now a Lo Bill. Marsh bought Mr. D's, and O'Malias. Most of the O'Malia's are staying, but a number of the Mr. D's are changing to either Marsh stores or Lo Bill.

Lo Bill? Never heard of it. I left in 1997, I think. I shopped at Marsh on, I think, Madison and Evergreen. I think that's closed now.

Mr. D's was a nice store, but a little expensive. If I was really poor, I went to Cub on 31 and s (oops) and Stop 11.

But I left the freezing weather and live in the desert again. I remember -20 degrees for days on end. Now it's 110 degrees for weeks on end. Quite different. Both uncomfortable.

Maybe it's Edgewood, not Evergreen. Once I slid through a 4 way stop at Edgewood and Madison going down the hill on ice. The cop behind me slid right through with me.

I also got stuck at the light at Southport and Madison on ice. I had bald tires and when the light turned green I went nowhere. Finally backed way up and got a run at it.

Sorry to reminisce, just don't have anything better to do at the moment.

Thom-E: The Cub is gone, but I know that area pretty well. Romana lives over in that area, so did Alan. I used to live across the street from what I liked to call "The crappy Kroger in the 'Hood". WE lived in a nice neighborhood, and this Kroger was horrid. We went to get juice from there, but since I didn't bring an ice pick to chip them out.

I liked the area when I lived there. My ex-inlaws still live near Thompson and Keystone. There are alot of nice neighborhoods in that area, and the housing prices were reasonable. I guess there is a lot of new development just north and east of there. That was going on when I lived there.

Oh, I remember now, it' Southport and McFarland that I got stuck. The street names are all coming back to me now.

Since I moved away from Phoenix and then back here, even though I was gone for 10 years, it's like I never left. Indy and Louisville are like a dream (Louisville was more like a nighmare).

Marsh bought out O'Malia's?? That kinda sucks. The O'Malia's on East 56th was rather plush...never seen a grocery store with carpeted floors before.

The O'Malia's stores are still operating as O'Malia's, though. Haven't been in one, yet, but I understand that they're pricey.

O'Malia's has stayed the same, other than thier prices going down a bit. They can now use Marsh's buying power to get name brand product. Other than that, I haven't seen any changes in O'Malia's since the buy out.

Marsh more or less wanted (and got), a high end grocery chain, to complement thier mid-level and low end grocery chains (Marsh and Lo-Bill). It makes more sense for them to keep O'Malia's the way it was, to accomidate that high end consumer.

It sounds like good business. Here (in Phoenix), Kroger owns some chains, but they maintain their names. Familiar names here. Most people I know have never heard of Kroger, but Kroger is making money from their grocery purchases.

Thom-E, Kroger, I believe, is suppose to be one of (if not the) largest grocery chain in the US. It's kinda like the Walmart of the grocery chain business... it just keeps buying up little stores and them implimenting their d*mn club card.. (grumble, grumble, grumble)...

As for the south side of Indy, I live there now, and I lived there back in the early 90's. Mid 90's I moved up to Carmel for about a 4 year stint. Decided to move back to the south side because it was more affordable. It's grown quite a bit over the last several years, although the economy is hitting Indy hard. Seems like there are quite a few buisnesses that have gone under over the last 4 years.

I liked the south side of Indy. It was quiet and clean. I lived on the east side for a short time (Washington and Post area) and wasn't thrilled with it. When I moved to the south side it was very nice.

I felt bad seeing so many corn fields turning into housing developments, but most cities have the same issue.

The thing that was the most different to me living in Indy was the predjudice.
I wasn't used to it. I've grown up in Phoenix which is mostly white and hispanic. Some people have some problems with it but in general most people just get along. The things I heard in Indy about (against) black people was amazing to me. How people could hate others so strongly was a new experience.
I never heard the word ni**** so many times in my life. Even in casual conversation as a normal word to use from my exwife's grandmother.

But I think I belong in the desert. I feel most comfortable in this part of the country.

I live on the southside of Indy near Greenwood and have almost my whole life. I love it here.

Kroger owns the Ralphs chain here. I've used my Ralphs Club card at Kroger stores in Indy and Jackson OH...

Now, I wonder if I can get some Ohio-regional stuff by special order...probably only by the case.

I can use a Kroger card at Fry's here. I have no idea if I can use a Fry's card at Kroger. Since there's no Kroger here, it doesn't really matter.

Actually, it's not just Indiana. I've moved all over during my younger years. I could have just been oblivious to it because I was younger, but I don't remember much prejustice in the West. South seemed to have it, as did the mid-west. It's sad to see when people cannot view a person for who they are but for what they are (ie, good/bad person vs racial makeup).

Shadow, talk to the store manager. You never know what they might be able to bring in unless you ask. :)

It was an interesting experience when I lived in Louisville as I lived in a mostly black neighborhood. Most of the black families had lived in their homes for several generations, and the white families rented the newer houses in the neighborhood. All the adults got along just fine, but my daughter had a rough time being picked on constantly by teenagers.
