More unsolved West End Mysteries

  • Today at 4:02PM

Is it the chill on the backs of our necks, or the acceleration of our hearts pounding in our chests that make us watch scary movies or listen intently to stories of the unexplained? Our fundamental human desire to explore the boundaries of fear and anxiety all the while knowing we are safe and secure in a movie theater, in our living room or with friends around a campfire. With Halloween about a week away, the time is right to explore more unexplained mysteries of the West End.

Chatting Around The Campfire Bill White’s Alaskan Timber Cutting Venture: The Wager XI

  • Today at 3:57PM

Bill’s challenger was very pleased with how things had gone that fine summer day in 1973 — everything had gone according to plan. He was supremely confident that no one, not even Bill, could top the numbers he had etched inside his hard hat at the end of his six hours of work he had labored this day. After all, he had fell and bucked 13 huge Sitka spruce trees with a total of 113,000 board feet, according to his figures.

Vote Yes on hunter's safety course for dogs

  • Today at 3:48PM

The other night, I read a Facebook thingy about Initiative 594 (gun control measure). It instructed Forks folks to vote no on the initiative because the entire town of Forks is going to be jailed if it passes. According to the Facebook thingy, merely handing your gun to anyone, including your dog, will get you thrown in jail if you do not go through the proper channels of transfershipness.

True Color-Part 9

  • Today at 3:46PM

I had a great job, but no address. My general orders were to promote public safety and be on hand for cliff or water rescues. I walked all day around Great Falls and on the C & O Towpath. For a while, I camped out and stayed with friends. The Park Service always is going on about crisp uniforms and I got written up a few times for looking like the homeless bum I was. I needed an address, but I couldn't reconcile myself to going back to suburbia.

Oh, the hipocrisy

Franklin Roosevelt established the Olympic National Park in 1938 in order to protect the area for future generations to enjoy. The National Park Service (NPS) has remained very serious about the “protect” part. If you look at, smell or touch anything in Olympic National Park, you can face the death penalty … or worse, be sentenced to drive behind tourists for eternity.
