As of Tuesday, July 1, 2014
We loved visiting the Columbia Gorge two years ago and had planned to return for an extensive visit in early fall. Having just read the earthquake story in Portland Monthly, we may be changing our minds.
What plans are being made in the Hood River/White Salmon area for the “overdue” earthquake?” How far east of Portland would be considered “safe?” Is anyone else freaked out?
Pay your share
Did you know that if you have an automatic sprinkling system in your yard, you are required by the City to have the backflow valve checked on your system every year by a certified plumber AND if it is not checked and the necessary paperwork sent to the City by a certain time, your water will be shut off? So, to those of us that are in compliance, great! To those that are not, in all fairness, pay your share. I know that I am tired of paying for the property owner that is in “noncompliance“.
Hood River is the place to be when it comes to “parade watching” on the 4 th of July!
Much time, love, and money is invested by a few for many; then have to witness the lack of respect for “Old Glory,” our stars and stripes, the pride of an American citizen.
Is it due to the ignorance of non citizens?
Then our “news media” may consider an educational article, titled “Flag Etiquette”
for the flag that represents “one nation under God.”
Park and text
With both hands on the wheel
And both eyes on the road
You’re a safe driver
And protecting your load.
You park … then you phone.
You park … then you text.
‘Cause a stationary car
Means a reduction in wrecks.
