Last week, Ana Karen wrote an Our Corner about speeding and how little time you save and how much you’re putting yourself at risk when you speed.

I’m pretty embarrassed, since I even double checked and triple checked my work during the staff meeting in which I did all this. Whoops.

This sounded highly unlikely). When I went to the organizations the superintendent spoke with, I asked the people there: “Was Mike Nelson here to get a yes vote?” They all said yes.

More than 17 percent of Washington’s tobacco retailers illegally sold tobacco to minors in 2015, according to the annual Synar Report. Washington’s 2015 retailer non-compliance level is the highest it’s been since the state began tracking in 1997, when the rate was 19.8 percent. If the rate exceeds 20 percent, the state could lose federal funding for drug, alcohol, and tobacco prevention and treatment.

Some points from the last Feb. 4 Black Diamond Council meeting. While having a quorum on a council committee may not be illegal if properly noticed per RCW 42.30, there are still serious conflicts of interest if this were to actually occur in the small town of Black Diamond. Having three members of a five member board on a standing committee makes no sense.
