After getting over the initial shock of nearly 1,000 pages of spending, taxes and education policy being released and acted on without any measure of transparency or time for public comment, I finally have had a chance to review the 2017-19 budget deal. Combined with yesterday’s shocking actions...
City council works very hard and is to be commended. Grants fund the majority of their projects. Whether the grant is funded by a non-profit, or state or federal monies, the taxpayer foots the bill. Just, because it’s a nonprofit does not mean it can’t earn money. To stay in business and promote...
 Teachers are “taking back control of their profession” bleats Jami Lund, employee of the extremist and inappropriately labeled organization, the Freedom Foundation.

What an ignorant “publisher” you have. I love how he blames calls impeachment discussions for “making a mockery of our election process” as if Trump didn’t already do that with his campaign tactics, personal/work BS, and Twitter activity or that the calls for impeachment are because he won in...

  The public outcry against Sound Transit’s unfair and excessive car tab taxes has painfully illustrated how public officials make life hard for working families when they impose high taxes. The one message the public has successfully delivered to lawmakers this session, big time, is that high...
    Talk about the “Elephant in the room”! Unless you watch Fox news, just Fox news, and nothing but Fox news, you have no doubt heard about Bill O’Reilly’s sexual harassment lawsuit. Fox news stands mute on the subject, and especially their boy Bill. CNN, MSNBC, Local news and RT consider it to be...
  Washington, along with every state in the nation, utilizes a gas tax to provide a major source of funding for roads and bridges. It has been a reliable workhorse for decades, but its future sustainability is uncertain as vehicles become more fuel-efficient and alternative fuel sources emerge.  We...
