Gambling: Just another pleasant pastime?

  • Jun 27, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:46PM

I was in a queue at Safeways Western Union counter the other day, waiting to wire some money to a friend overseas. Four people ahead of me were scanning chits through a machine on the counter. It was a Lotto scanner, and written across its front was this message: Its good to play Lotto.

In your recent column about the world wide toilet revolution with the effort to expand the availability of public toilets, you wrote that most grocery stores did not allow customers to use their employees facilities, which was why Rep.

OBrien, my store has added a public facility. Why didnt the other grocers allow use of employee facilities?

  • May 7, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:46PM

So Sen. Maria Cantwell and Rep. Jay Inslee have asked President Bush to create a task force to investigate possible fraud and price gouging by oil and gas companies. Gasoline averaging $3.50 a gallon is dragging the economy into recession, they said in their letter to the president and its time to get to the bottom of it.

  • May 7, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:45PM

How far is it to Seattle? That depends. Among other things, it depends on the time of day, the season, weather and the particular day of the week. Add the price of gas. According to the on-the-ground measure, Seattle is 38 miles away. My cars odometer agrees with maps that 38 miles is close to accurate. Though the road still measures 38 miles, I can feel the distance growing every year.

New Arlington Library deserves support

  • May 7, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:45PM

Ballots for the May 20 special election should have already begun appearing in area mail boxes, as local residents will have the opportunity to decide if Arlington needs a new library.

Christmas, 1947

  • Dec 13, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:45PM

It was a world of one-car families, one salary incomes, one-car detached garages, and one bathroom homes.
