LOOKING FOR LAND
I’m a veteran looking for a parcel of land in the Bothell/Woodinville area to build my dream home. I’ve looked in the area but not too much is for sale. If you happen to own a parcel you are willing to sell to a veteran, my price range is around $125,000.
I am more than willing to answer any questions. I know this is a long shot, but thought it was worth a shot.
Below are some of the questions you are probably wondering about:
1. What type of veteran are you?
I was active duty for 16 years, deployed three times, was discharged honorably and currently in the reserves.
2. Why Bothell/Woodinville?
My son and daughter are autistic and go to a wonderful school in the area that accommodates their special needs. I promised my wife I would exhaust all resources before leaving the schools boundaries.

WOODINVILLE-DUVALL ROAD MEDIANS
To the City of Woodinville: Why do we have medians/islands instead of lanes? I thought we needed more lanes to handle our traffic. Silly me! Have you seen the line to turn north at Mack’s Corner? Have you seen the traffic coming and going during peak traffic and school drop off/pick up times? Have you seen the Saturday westbound back up at 156th? Maybe a designated right hand turn lane would have been better than a median taking up a whole lane. Also, it seems to me that the large (and ugly) evergreens being planted (Why?! We don’t need those!) in these silly medians should have been planted along the shoulders on people’s properties that lost their privacy trees and bushes. Those property owners received twigs instead. I’m sure they’ll have some of their natural screens back in 15 years with those scrawny plantings.
