This time, Carnation may have gotten it right. Although a small majority of city voters have historically rejected any proposed tax increases for police services—the ‘no’ votes outnumbered the ‘yes’ by as few as 23 in the last three ballot measures—they could be the minority in November. Carnation’s Proposition 1 on the general election ballot is still a tax increase for police, but for increased coverage only. So, if voters approve the ballot measure in November, the city will have $70,000 to spend on things like extra night and weekend patrols and drug house surveillance, but not on the standard cost of the city’s service contract with the King County Sheriff’s Office.

Discipline issues are down, so are failing grades.

They work well together. It’s age appropriate.”

When the man got inside, he took out a 2x4 and started chasing the caller, threatening him with it. The caller said he'd outrun the man so far, but didn't know where he was.

The other day, after much procrastination, we took the plunge and got a new car—not brand new, mind you, but new to us. That’s what counts, right? The new ride lacks the smooth ride of my old domestic sedan. A Nissan, it’s not plush, and there aren’t a lot of frills. But besides that great ‘new car smell,’ it’s got one good thing going for it—it costs about $29 to fill up. I love that fuel economy, and that was single biggest reason to get it.
