Business will not knuckle under without a fight

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:28PM

Would you believe that a state Department of Labor and Industries regulation that took effect June 18 requires that employees who work outside during hot weather be provided with shade canopies or tents that have air conditioners or misting stations? And that employers provide one quart of water per hour per worker and a positive signal informing workers when to take a drink? This heat stress regulation isnt new. DLI proposed it last year but there was such a flap from employers that it wasnt adopted. Its back as an emergency rule, which means that it stays in effect for 120 days, without the usual public hearings and an economic impact statement that are required for adoption of non-emergency rules.

Relief shouldnt mean paying more

After the Washington State Supreme Court ruled against Initiative 747, I was glad the governor accepted our request to call a one-day special session on Nov. 29 to reinstate the measures 1 percent levy limit. It was our opportunity to uphold the will of the people who approved the initiative in 2001.

Memorable Christmases

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:27PM

Some Christmases live in my memory. Some dont. My earliest truly memorable Christmas took place during WWII. Arctic air and a dwindling supply of coal had caused Dad to fire up the sheepherders stove that crouched in front of the fireplace. It was fed with scrounged wood, mainly cast-off railroad ties. The trouble with ties is that they give off creosote fumes that collect on chimneys insides to form a thick, flammable layer of varnish.
