PHOTOS: Moore-Turner Heritage Gardens

Posted By on Sun, Jun 30, 2013 at 3:11 PM

This week, Chey Scott explores the history of the Moore-Turner Heritage Gardens on the South Hill. Lost for decades, parts of the gardens were discovered after the ice storm in 1996. After a 10-year restoration, spearheaded by then Corbin Art Center Director Lynn Mandyke, the gardens were open to the public. Photos by Young Kwak.

A walkway that once gave residents of the South Hill access to downtown runs along the entrance of the garden.

The carriage road circles parts of the lower areas of the gardens.

Various flowers grow in the carriage road garden.

A staircase leads to the pond at the top of the gardens.

The pond area at the top of the gardens gives an uninhibited view of downtown.

The tea house also gives a view of the downtown area.

Trails lead visitors from one area of the gardens to another.

One area that couldn't be restored was the conservatory and greenhouses. Detailed plans could not be found for that area, so it remains an empty plot of land.

Irises are in bloom at the gardens.

The gardens provide many views of downtown.

The Mask of Pan fountain can be seen in the middle of the gardens.

Rainy Weather

Posted on Sat, Jun 29, 2013 at 8:24 AM



Jeers to all the people who whined and complained about the Jeff Dunham
OUTDOOR show being rainy. You paid for an OUTDOOR show, there's always a
chance for inclement weather, especially in this state. Those of us that
toughed it out had a wonderful time. Thank you Northern Quest for your
great entertainment.

RE: Places To Go

Even if I blinked 182 times, I could not miss your gunmetal gray stang
trying to zip by un-noticed. It was so polished, I could see my camoflauged
vehicle reflecting in your mirror, while attempting to break the barriers
of the speed of sound. It is exhilarating to be sharing the road with you!
Love wins, punk

RE: Tips

Posted on Sat, Jun 29, 2013 at 8:24 AM



Since you are someone who assumes to know everything about server's income,
let me explain something to you about the service industry. Servers are
taxed 8.5% on their total sales. This means that they receive very small
paychecks because their total sales for a given period are taxed assuming
people tip, and the percentage is taken directly out of their paycheck. At
the end of the year I file my taxes and receive about $600. My husband does
not work for tips and receives roughly the same amount (we also claim 0 and
not 1). Hence, I am not receiving my taxed income back from the government
at the end of the year. It's a normal occurrence for people to tip poorly
or not at all. It happens and I accept it as such. Furthermore, I tip out
about $4,000 per year to the kitchen which I have to claim as income that I
really don't take home. In addition, we live in a society in which most
people use some form of plastic to pay for most of their purchases, so on
the rare occasion we receive a cash tip it hardly makes up the difference
for people who don't understand the concept of tipping. I am going
to 'assume' that you are one of those people who feel it unnecessary to tip
a server (providing that they gave you good service). I would like to
extend you an invitation to take a job as a server. You can see what it is
like to walk a mile in our shoes, and get an understanding of how difficult
it can be to deal with hungry, rude people. Perhaps then you will
understand how much we rely on tips, and truly appreciate the people who
tip us well. My advice to you is simple; before you go ranting about what
you think you know, make sure you are correct in all your assumptions!

Reconnect?

Posted on Sat, Jun 29, 2013 at 8:24 AM



I think of you all of the time. When I look back on our time together I
remember how you made me feel. You were the only man who could calm me down
when I needed it most. You took the time to listen and understand me and
all of my ideas I wanted to share with you. My biggest regret is not being
able to fall into your arms when you asked me. I am sorry I needed to take
that time to work on me, I`m stronger now and I know I`m able to be the
women you need me to be and I would love it if you could relook at me
again. I heard you have moved on and if it doesn`t work out for you maybe
you would come back to me and love me the rest of our lives together. I'm
sorry I waited so long to come to you, but know I will always love you.
From the President of Ideas

June 20th, around 4:30. You wore a Chiawana shirt or sweatshirt and shorts.
I wore a WSU sweatshirt, and I think we glanced at each other for a moment.

Let The Magic Begin!

Posted on Sat, Jun 29, 2013 at 8:24 AM



Even though 300kknd miles separates us, nothing will come between us. We
are finding a way and making 'us' happen. We've got this! I can't thank you
enough for coming into my life and being exactly what I need and deserve.
You're the best! Distance is nothing when it comes to you and I. The
travels from here and there are completely worth it to be able to be with
you and spend time with you! You're my world and everything I've ever
dreamed of! I cannot wait to see what our future holds between us, I have a
feeling It's going to be wonderful!

Customer Service

Posted on Sat, Jun 29, 2013 at 8:24 AM



The dude that runs Bubble Land Laundry on 29th has awesome customer service
skills. No sarcasm. He's like Good Guy Greg or something. Saved me some
time and money by telling me what washers would fit everything I needed to
wash for less loads and even gave me a couple of dryer sheets instead of
making me use the vending machine. And he did that all while he's running
around like a crazy person to get the drop off laundry done. He even made a
point to check and make sure I was still doing okay. Seriously, he treats
his customers like customers instead of like annoyances. I can rarely get
that kind of service when eating out with friends. Living at home again
while I finish school means I won't need a laundromat as much, but you bet
your sweet fabric softener I know where I am going when I do. Also, he has
an awesome dog.

for those of you who drive past me as I wait to cross four lanes at an
unmarked crosswalk, who yell that I should "get my a** to a crosswalk and
quit jaywalking. I am at an unmarked intersection. Go back to driver's ed
and learn what one of those is, the law, and for crying out loud, STOP so
that I can cross! It is your job to stop for me. I have the right of way.
If I could ticket every one of you, you better believe I would. Be grateful
I am not walking out in front of you to make my point! RCW 46.61.235
Crosswalks. (1) The operator of an approaching vehicle shall stop and
remain stopped to allow a pedestrian or bicycle to cross the roadway within
an unmarked or marked crosswalk when the pedestrian or bicycle is upon or
within one lane of the half of the roadway upon which the vehicle is
traveling or onto which it is turning. For purposes of this section "half
of the roadway" means all traffic lanes carrying traffic in one direction
of travel, and includes the entire width of a one-way roadway.
