    Heartless. To op’s original question. Do you feel that the rv’s around WS are exempt from the law?? If laws were EQUALLY applied to all that would end any and all sympathy for complainers.

    Maddy. Jort(formerly Jort Sandwich) is a longtime blog commenter. Well known for WAY over the top anti car rants. It’s interesting to note that based on past comments moves to a different neighborhood in WS every 6 months or so and knows about traffic in WS because he drives all over. Honestly makes for entertaining reading but doesn’t sway anybody’s commuting/shopping modes. We do need to encourage non car transportation options but it’s not helpful when you read “nobody needs to drive” comments from posters to the blog that if you read all their posts turn out to own and drive cars themselves. They want you out of a car but I guess that’s so they have more room to drive their cars.

    All the city neighborhoods are established. Meaning unless a house (or small business) is torn down there’s no space for denser housing. Unless the city condemns and kicks someone out it’ll be hard to build-unless they build in a green space. Tricknology. Developers have always been able to do things individuals can’t. There really are one set of rules for individuals and a set of rules(wink wink) for developers.

    Good friend is an ER nurse at Swedish. Takes ALL her will not to abandon patients. Which ones?? The anti vaxer/maskers who end up in emergency. EVERY SINGLE ONE asks for the vaccine or any other experimental drug out there. When she tells them they’re TOO LATE to get the vaccine they moan “shoulda got it” To quote whoever said it: YOU CAN’T FIX STUPID

    Have seen some lawn care vehicles advertising they do snow removal. Also check with local contractors. Several years ago saw Met Market getting their lot cleared by a backhoe. Calling around should find someone that knows someone.

    Waitress at my favorite restaurant(not in WS)said the #1 reason restaurant workers won’t ask is that they’re afraid of the verbal and/or physical abuse they will get from irate customers. They simply don’t make enough money to want to deal with it and they have no confidence that other customers will come to their defense. Also have to ask: how many people ask to see the vax card proof of all the workers in a restaurant.

    What also adds to cost is shoplifting. Clerk at Admiral Safeway told me Safeway loses thousands A DAY in Seattle due to shoplifting. They’re not getting back up from legal system so they don’t even try to detain. Guess who ends up paying-yep-US.

    Best way would be to go to the store and ask for the manager.

    Don’t have the completion schedule but when they’re done it means 24/7 container ships and 24/7 truck and train noise and traffic. SDOT is even banning the business owners who have passes to use the low bridge from going across during the day.

    To Mark47n’s comments. Homeowner’s MUST verify and ensure people working on their property ARE licensed and bonded. Call the state to confirm. If they’re not and someone get’s injured YOU THE HOMEOWNER ARE LEGALLY LIABLE and WILL be sued. IT happened to a friend of mine in Shorewood and the gal that does the home remodeling show on KOMO radio on Saturday’s said it happen to her years ago. To his other comment…my mom needed some work done on her house on Genesee Hill. We kids were busy so she found a “handyman” that said he could do the work. Mom said he was a “little scruffy” and had an old car. Turned out work he did was excellent and charged a fair price. When her oil furnace went out she had the oil company service van come out. The repairman was uniformed and clean cut. When he left it not only wasn’t fixed right it was leaking oil!! They did come back(different guy) and fix it correctly. Moral of my story is that homeowners MUST do their homework on who they’re hiring and PAY ATTENTION

    aa. Trust. Last time at Jiffy lube(MANY years ago) i left and got on I5 to visit family. LUCKILY i had an oil pressure gage and saw my oil pressure drop. Got to the side and had to be towed. Turns out they hadn’t tightened the nut on the pan. It had come off and drained all my oil on the freeway. Went back the next day and spoke to the manager. He basically accused me of trying to get a “freebe”. Won’t EVER go there again. There are a lot of good auto repair businesses and YES trust is important even for an oil change.

    I now use Tom’s Automotive exclusively. They’re not cheap but the work they’ve done on my vehicle has been done right the 1st time and i’m confident in simply getting in and going because i’ve never had an issue.

    Daily walker on Alki here. When i’m out-7:30 to 8:30 there’s been 1 sometimes 2 regular guy’s with their metal detectors checking the sand. I suggest if you can, come out in the morning and see if you can catch one of them so they can keep an eye out. Good luck!

    I got Pfizer. 1st shot was Feb 24th 2nd March 17th. 1st shot I had a slightly sore arm for @36 hours. 2nd shot has a less sore arm the 1st day and felt a little fever/headache/low energy the 2nd day. I’ve felt fine since. My sister and brother in law had Pfizer just before I did and had less side effects than I did. My other sister and brother in law had Moderna just before I did. They had the same side effects I did. As of today we’re all feeling great with NO vaccine issues.

    All neighborhood’s are dog friendly. However, that’s assuming you keep your dog leashed and pick up after it. As far as ditching your car. If your recreation needs include going to the coast/mountains/San Juan’s you’ll need a car.
