Hot water for the 21st Century

  • May 30, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:59PM

I once hated green olives but that was back in my childhood. Over a few decades I passed from getting used to them to actually enjoying their flavor. Some changes are like that. Slow and incremental. When it comes to petty issues such as liking or not liking green olives, incremental change is okay. But when our well-being and way-of-life is at stake it doesnt pay to let time slip by.

Im glad I was unable to attend this years Mainstream Republicans of Washington convention in Wenatchee or I wouldnt have been able to keep my seat or my mouth shut when the MRs clapped enthusiastically (Seattle Post-Intelligencer) for former U.S. Attorney John McKay.

Foreigners: The ruckus over illegal immigrants

  • Nov 28, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:58PM

The ruckus over illegal immigrants has the nation pulling in different directions. Everyone wants to live under a rule of law that protects rights and property but not everyone wants laws that pounce on laborers who traveled here to find work. Yes, many are illegal. No, theyre not necessarily bad people. Yes, they provide a needed function in our economy. No, they shouldnt be entitled, nor do they expect the entire package of citizens rights unless it is made readily available.

OK, OK, Im recycling

OK, OK, Im recycling. As a disciple of the late Gov. Dixy Lee Ray, Im not convinced of the value of it yet, but Im willing to listen to those who are and do.

Green buildings focus of conference

  • Mar 28, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:57PM

Architects and builders from across Snohomish and King counties converged on Everetts Events Center to hear leaders in the building industry expound on green issues. Over 750 building-trade professionals took the day to hear and share whats new in the fields of design and materials. But first they had to get past a clutch of demonstrators wearing goofy costumes. They were such a jolly lot that it was difficult to determine whether they were seriously peeved over Weyerhaeusers timber practices or just out having a good time.

Its a dirty, dirty business

  • Mar 28, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:57PM

One of the first things I learned when I started writing politics in 1961 was that naming federal prosecutors is part of the political patronage that goes with being elected president. Those are political plum jobs like postmasters and liquor store managers. Every lawyer who got a federal prosecutorial appointment knew that while he had a four-year term, he served at the pleasure of the president and could be let go at any time without being given a reason.

Norm Maleng gives a lifetime of public service

  • Jun 6, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:57PM

Norm Malengs problem, I thought and why he got left at the post in his two tries for governor and one for attorney general, was that he found it difficult to blow his own horn.

Everyone has their favorite Strawberry Festival activity. For some its the Grand Parade or the fireworks that follow. For others it may be the Pig Out on the Farm, the trike races, the Funtastic carnival, the talent show or the Berry Run. For many, last years inaugural Poochapalooza became an instant favorite and will return this year.
