Make your opinion heard about Gilman development
How many of you who witnessed the 2009 (and 1996 and 1990) flooding around Lombardi’s thought that the best solution for that site would be to add three five-story buildings, 400 automobiles and 600 residents? And with no requirement to do anything to keep the site from flooding again?

Minimum wage talk starts good discussion
Income equality is the driving force behind the much talked about potential for a $15 minimum wage across the state. The $15 question was put to a vote in the city of SeaTac in November and narrowly passed.
Washington state currently has the highest state minimum wage in the nation, which increases with inflation and stands at $9.32 this year.
While we believe every worker should have the right to a decent wage, the $15/hour equates to $31,200 annually, not even the $41,000/year estimated as a living wage for a family of four in King County. So why stop at $15?
