DIRT SLOPE

Further to the article a few weeks ago regarding the dirt mountain on Hollywood Hill, with all due respect to the community of Mounterra and the contractor who both ultimately have benefited from this project, this is hardly a “correction” of sinking land. If this were, then it would have been done in keeping with the topography of the area, not a man-made hill of such height that it seems to pose more of a safety threat now than the original landfill did!

BEER AWARDS

Woodinville brewing industry has grown rapidly over the last few years from just one large craft brewer to seven and counting. Bothell and Kenmore have also seen several breweries open as well. I was pleased to see recognition, in the Applause section of last week’s paper for Redhook’s beer “No Equal” winning a gold medal for American Light Ales at the 2015 Washington Beer Awards. This was not the only medal won by our local brewers and I think we should equally recognize their achievements.

CAMPAIGN SIGNS
It has been brought to my attention that my signs have very recently been removed from parts of the Woodinville area, including signs that were on private property. Interestingly, I have been informed that my opponent’s signs remain untouched.

SAFETY REMINDER
This is a reminder to everyone that school is back in session and the kids are out and about. Please, please, please stay off of your phones, at the very least when you’re coming through the crossings near schools!

Today I had a woman roll into the crosswalk (where kids were being crossed) because she was busy looking at her phone. Another woman, who had the green light, was also looking at her phone and had no idea the other cars were honking at her because she was just “busy” reading her phone!

WOODINVILLE-DUVALL ROAD
Well, well, here we are in August of 2015 and what do we see? Stan Palmer trucks slinking around working hard to complete the job that was supposed to be completed last November. We now have a (seems permanent) welcoming sign on Woodinville-Duvall Road: “Road Work Ahead, Expect Delays.” Not surprising as that’s what you get when you give a contract to the low bidder without the necessary language spelling out an end date with monetary penalties for non-performance. The Stan Palmers love those contracts as they start work on the “open ended” job and soon disappear for weeks at a time to put their crews on jobs that have a penalty for not completing the work on time. To give the illusion of working on the low bid project, they set out lots of orange barrels and move them around each day. Then the change orders start to appear and now the low bidder isn’t so low after all. Great job!
