What does it look like—a thick, blobby smear, or a watery splash on the floor and walls? Be specific, because your decision could be the difference between a flood insurance claim that’s covered, and one that’s rejected. Although that’s not exactly how claims are resolved, the milkshake imagery is part of flood insurance training, says Elizabeth Gildersleeve.

Opinion | Trading convenience for security at Valley schools, or why North Bend Elementary’s Claggett Field was fenced

  • Oct 3, 2013 at 10:33AM

True, it didn’t have EJ Roberts’ dry creek or walking path, or Si View’s public amenities. But it was closer to home, and its row of stately firs beckoned for book reads and Frisbee games on summer afternoons.
