AceI don’t know what happened to my post about the activity going on at Schmidt’s Bakery on S.W. 14th Street.

More details as I get them.





Loveland to sprout a new business?

SproutsIs Loveland finally going to get a major natural food grocery store?

For years, we have all heard rumors about Alfalfa’s, Whole Foods or Sprouts coming to town.   Not too many months ago, we got a taste (pun intended) of what a natural grocery store would be like when The Crunchy Grocer opened.

Now, it would seen that Sprouts is making a major move our way.   The place most likely to have the new Sprouts is the block on Lincoln just north of Eisenhower. So across the street from Dairy Queen to the north.   I have heard that some homes on the west side of Jefferson and north of Hiway 34 (Eisenhower Blvd) may give way to the new Loveland grocery store.


Attached is a letter about a “Special Grocery Store” and rezoning of some addresses on North Jefferson Ave.


Stay tuned.  You heard it first at


Here is the letter. It needs to be enlarged (click on it) to really read it.
