Disappointing that I won't be able to participate in the other forums. Oh well. Maybe we can have our fun here?

Well, I suppose we could discuss moving a short season barely Class A baseball team to Vancouver. The facebook side is getting brutal on this topic - and I'm not seeing much of any support for it. What's also interesting is that while Jayne keeps trying to drum up support for the move, he pretty much got chopped off at the knees by fellow Columbian staffer Stephanie Rice, in her blog Are You On the County's A-List? that can be found under All Politics Are Local. It seems project backers had a meeting back in early May to solicit support from the people they consider movers here, and they neglected to include The Columbian.

Seems I have also been left off the county's "A-List". Big surprise.

Just a quick comment on the marathon today. I am glad to see the event come to fruition for the supporters and for the local economy. One rather frustrating glitch in the planning however involving road closures. The road to Vancouver Lake Park was also closed even though not mentioned in the closures. My family, along with many others trying to access the park were either stuck in line or opting to make a very unsafe turn around and head home. The traffic control person could have simply moved a couple of cones to allow the many cars to pass through. I also would have thought the farm owners would have been notified rather than having their workers and farm equipment sitting and idling when they could have been taking advantage of a rare dry day.

You know what I liked about the marathon? That the winners are both locals. Considering this race was a Boston qualifier that was labeled flat and fast, a lot of people from elsewhere were probably among the 1000 who entered.

Yes, a shout out to the locals, congrats Cody & Lauren and to all who participated in the race.

roger and itiswritten: I, too, was happy to see Vancouver's inaugural marathon be a success!

Here's something fun coming up this weekend at Esther Short Park: The Recycled Arts Festival. Good food, music and local art.
