Re: “The Contenders

Don't forget the measles aspect, either.

Here's an article from the NY Times earlier this month talking about how getting the measles can reduce the ability of the body to ward off other infections as well: http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/05/07/m…

Re: “The Contenders

@larrycebula:

Here's what Fagan said:
“Men and women are not equal,” he said. “Biologically, there are differences between men and women. Is a 150-pound woman (police officer) going to be able to control a 250-pound, out-of-control so-and-so?”

Re: “The Contenders

Easy to pick who you will and won't vote for. Money will be raised for some of the new candidates.

Re: “The Contenders

"Ben Krauss, an analyst with the city who said he's running because of Fagan's views on pay differences between men and women working in city government."

I hate to ask...but what are Fagan's views on this matter?

Re: “Promises and Payments

Thank God, someone finally created some shade for the Ag Center each winter. Oh, change that to thank you WW for keeping our Ag Center in your very large hotel's shadow all winter and running up the city's heating costs, icing up the sidewalks and blocking views.

Re: “The Collaborator

Murray is a die-hard liberal, but can still compromise, negotiate and succeed. And she's learned that you have to act in good faith by keeping your word and not insulting your opponents. I wonder how she managed to learn these lessons, which the President has not learned.

Re: “Promises and Payments

Well that money is getting tied up probably because they are trying figure out away to give themselves raises again..... and from the sounds of it I wouldn't deal with any people like you, who renig on a deal.

So let the contamination reach the water, let city council take more raises... whatever happened to being a man of your word?

Re: “Derailed

You forget to mention how this prick treats the hospital and rehabilitation staff. How about the verbal abuse that he doles out to the people that have to help his worthless ass. As if it's their fault that he got ran over by a train. What a waste that the taxpayers have to pay for such ignorance.

Re: “Promises and Payments

I like what WW has done. The hotel is ugly however. We should not be paying for his project.

Re: “Promises and Payments

I'm not exactly sure why it is a "Grand Hotel". It looks like it was designed by a former Soviet Union planner with worse than average skills.

Re: “Derailed

In 2014, 458 people were killed on Washington state highways. 37% of them were alcohol related. In total 1,981 people died from alcohol abuse in Washington state in 2014. Is spending your adult life as a drunk or druggie really news?

The real issue is that taxpayers have spent the last 20 years paying the bills for this particular drunk. now me mangled himself and taxpayers will have to pay the freight on him until he dies. This man squandered his entire adult life on drugs and alcohol and we are supposed to feel sorry for him?

As my buddy used to say, "Play stupid games, Win stupid prizes."

Re: “Derailed

"BNSF spokesman Gus Melonas says there have been nine deaths on Washington state's BNSF railways so far this year, including a 17-year-old girl killed last weekend in Western Washington."

To be fair, that girl wasn't riding -- she and her friends were on a railroad trestle that's used as a jumping-off point into a river. Her friends could outrun the train and get off the bridge, she didn't.

Re: “Whitman Privilege

So solve the problem with lack of economic diversity among students at Whitman by impoverishing Whitman professors by making them adjuncts? Now that's some deep thinking by an author addressing social and economic injustice. How would Whitman recruit faculty, especially faculty of color or working class faculty, to live in one of the least diverse parts of the country with lower paying jobs? How about tackling root issues like bloated administrations and the tweaking of the Whitman discount rate after the 2008 recession if you want to get to the root of the matter.

Re: “Boxed Up

Based on the negative comments you all are assuming the city staff is going into this with a blind eye and open arms. Did you read the article???? Life is full of gray areas. Have you read anything else on this policy other than this one article? Did you all read this paragraph above?? " applicants with criminal records have an opportunity to highlight their work and education history first. Any criminal history, she says, should be revealed at the end of the process so the hiring manager has a complete picture of the applicant."

So an 18 yr old kid steals a car and is convicted of a felony. Now fast forward 20 years to 2015. He has not been in trouble since then, yet his one big mistake has continually followed him. He has gone to college, has a family and has walked the straight and narrow. This is the situation I believe this policy is intended to cover. Why NOT give a person who has made a mistake in the past a chance? You ASSUME that a convicted murderer or child molester is going to walk in and they are going to give him a job, no questions asked??? Duh!!! Give me a break. Not only is that an insult to the intelligence of the people doing the hiring but a display of your lack of knowledge of the hiring process. (and the kind of drama the average internet troll spews, weak.)

Do you honestly believe they are just going to hand a job to a career criminal? I'm in support of giving someone who made a mistake (note: that's not plural) a chance. Use some thought and compassion before giving your knee jerk reaction based on party rhetoric assumptions and inability to see anything other than a black and white scenario.

Further more, and here is my assumptions, you would rather a person who makes a mistake never become a productive member of society. YOU want to support them via your taxes. YOU would rather they wallow in poverty and all the associated life/societal problems that brings. (Think domino effect) Whether you are a republicrat or a demican matters not. That's just sheer ignorance with a side of no compassion.

Re: “Promises and Payments

It was the city's responsibility to remediate any contamination. How can they speak of using money wisely when they want to build a bridge from the Liberal Indoctrination Zone to Hookerville instead of paying for their environmental cleanup?.

Re: “Promises and Payments

Why should the city pay? The thing is a monstrous monument to greed begin with. Walt Worthy may have square feet but no worries Mr Worthy they match your

Re: “Deaths in the Family

Why are NCs prevention efforts highlighted? I want to hear about the schools that were directly affected and what changes *they* are making.

Re: “Deaths in the Family

Schools need to look into getting peer support specialist in the schools to be available at all times. They need to teach wellness plans and crisis plans. Arm our children with tools to cope day to day.

Re: “Promises and Payments

This is the citizens' money, and I do understand the benefits of this project," says Stuckart. "But when you are using public money, you have to be very careful."'.. Stuckart speak with forked tongue.
