Last car for gas

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:48PM

So Sen. Maria Cantwell and Rep. Jay Inslee have asked President Bush to create a task force to investigate possible fraud and price gouging by oil and gas companies. Gasoline averaging $3.50 a gallon is dragging the economy into recession, they said in their letter to the president and its time to get to the bottom of it. Remember back in the 70s when the Legislature created its own Select Committee on the Energy Crisis which traveled all over the state conducting hearings in communities where lines for gasoline were getting longer and longer?

How far is it to Seattle?

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:48PM

How far is it to Seattle? That depends. Among other things, it depends on the time of day, the season, weather and the particular day of the week. Add the price of gas. According to the on-the-ground measure, Seattle is 38 miles away. My cars odometer agrees with maps that 38 miles is close to accurate. Though the road still measures 38 miles, I can feel the distance growing every year.

The price of tomatoes

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:47PM

Tomatoes at Thriftway were $2.29 per pound. Higher elsewhere. It took $42.20 to fill my Dodge Caravan with Safeways discounted regular gas. Green fees at local courses have been bumped up a couple of bucks since last year. And of course there was my new property assessment. Ouch.

Governor Gregoires proposed 07-09 budget too high

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:47PM

Will wonders never cease? Can it possibly be true in this blue blue state out here on the Left Coast that most of the daily newspapers have forsaken their endorsement of all things Gregoire to proclaim that Queen Christines proposed budget for 2007-2009 is too high?

Last Candidate Standing

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:46PM

It is 1,842 miles from Marysville or Arlington to Des Moines, the capitol of Iowa. Thats a far distance for events there to determine who we might be voting for, but thats the way our system works. With nearly a year until the polls open, it did seem a bit excessive for the media to be assigning so much weight to one states primary results.
