I just got done meeting with the general manager and she says tickets will be a very reasonable $10. (May 12, 2009 | post #2)
As I understand it, the number of accidents have gone up at intersections with red light cameras. I would assume this is because people are trying even harder to beat the red light. So what it has done is make the honest drivers paranoid and the reckless ones more dangerous. They are a great money maker for the cities they are in though! (Oct 30, 2008 | post #9)
It is about time! People like this are a danger to everyone around them and on the roads with them. Sad it has taken 10 convictions to get him locked away. (Oct 30, 2008 | post #1)
This is entirely wrong. Over a year ago cleaning workers 'accidentally' put a cage with a live monkey through a washer and killed it. No one prosecuted and a citizen finally petitioned the judge to do something and he basically has blown it off saying that 'he doesn't feel a jury would find them guilty.' What he thinks a jury would decide is ludicrous! Here is a link to the full article: http://tinyurl.com /5dshty You can find the contact info for the judge to complain on my blog at: http://jacquieclif f.com/Real-Estate- Blog/ (Oct 29, 2008 | post #1)
I live in an area that had a roundabout installed on one of the busier intersections, and I have to say that it has made that location much safer. Cars no longer have to wait to turn left across a heavy flow of traffic, and cars don't get backed up any longer. My biggest fear is drivers that aren't competent to understand and navigate through them, but they are a danger no matter what! (May 5, 2008 | post #1)
I find this pretty ridiculous. If she had found actual pornography, I could have seen some reason to be outraged. But from the sounds of this article, the books she found were far from that and no more pornographic than anything on TV, the magazines for teens, or even the ads for clothing itself. I applaud her for taking the time to stand up for what she believes in, but I think her time would have been better spent talking to her children about life and sexuality than bitching at government officials.

A politician proposing a sin tax is sort of ridiculous considering the number of 'sins' they commit on a regular basis. (Apr 2, 2008 | post #369)
For those interested in the matter, Snohomish County is planning to enact a moratorium mobile home park conversions next week. If you would like to find out more visit http://www1.co.sno homish.wa.us/News/ for a link to the announcement! (Mar 21, 2008 | post #2)
A good portion of the current lending trauma stems from pure greed on the part of some lending companies. Anyone with even the smallest amount of business sense would not given out stated income, 100% loans to people with credit scores in the 400 and 500 range. Lenders in their rush to make more loans and make more money put loan products on the table that just didn't make sense from a business standpoint. Of course very few real estate agents or loan officer are going to complain when lending companies are handing out loans to anybody and everyone. Let us also not forget there is a good deal of fraudulent loans being put together. I have read several articles about loan officers that falsified income and bank records so that their clients would meet the minimum requirements for "minimal documentation " loans.

It is interesting that this article spins are real estate market as negative, because it hasn't declined heavily, while other areas of the country have. In my personal experience, I'm beginning to see more activity at least in the Lynnwood area. In fact, I recently had a client miss out on a property because they waited too long to put an offer on it. As with any market homes that are priced correctly are still selling. The majority of homes that I am seeing sit on the market are either new construction, or most likely overpriced to start with coming into the winter. When things slow down anyway.

Yes, the numbers are up, but they are no where near what they are the hardest hit areas. For those that are prepared, I still say this Spring will be one of the hottest markets for real estate buyers that we will have seen in some time! (Feb 27, 2008 | post #1)
I find it very disturbing that the drugs that our doctors prescribe to us are not dictated to us by what we should really be taking, but by what drugs are being pushed on them by the pharmacy reps. Considering that many doctors make a substantial portion of their income from pharmacies, I find it very disreputable. (Feb 27, 2008 | post #1)
I think someone needs to have a serious talk with the mother about who she lets watch her kids! (Feb 27, 2008 | post #1)
Someone is having a bad week. That is a lot of money to lose. Of course the big losers here are the people that owned the property. Even if it doesn't get seized by law enforcement, the damage to homes from grow operations is pretty substantial. All that heat and water is just dandy for growing mold and messing up drywall.

This underscores a major problem not just in Western Washington, but in most cities across the country. The land mobile homes are on is more valuable as condos and town homes, but the seniors living in the mobiles and manufactured homes can't afford them. There needs to be a considerable effort made to provide quality housing at affordable prices to our seniors. Either that or we need to move back more towards the traditional family structure with the senior relatives living at home. (Feb 27, 2008 | post #1)
