A column I wrote a couple weeks ago about the Clark County Republican Party led to an interesting conversation with a friend of mine. The local Republicans had chastised Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler for voting to end the government shutdown, and I questioned whether it was wise for officials to cannibalize one of their own as part of an ongoing fight for the soul of the party.

Now that the election has ended and the people have spoken and the results have been tallied, the time has arrived for the most important part of the entire process — removing those campaign signs.

I remember the first time I voted.

I sure hope they know what they're doing.

I like David Madore. Well, I've never actually spoken with the man, but I like the fact that he's willing to shake up county government.

I received a call awhile back, during my previous life as a sports editor, from a gentleman who identified himself as a Native American and wanted to talk about the furor over the Washington Redskins' nickname.

I didn't intend to turn this into "Brian Baird: The Miniseries." After all, I wrote about the former U.S. representative last week, and that's normally a big enough dose of anything that has to do with Congress.
By Greg Jayne September 29, 2013 6:01 a.m.
Frankly, I wanted to dislike Brian Baird.

We need to talk. About violence. About guns. About mental illness. We need to talk about the things that seem so maddeningly difficult to talk about in this country. We need to talk about the same things we needed to talk about after the last mass shooting, and the one before that, and the one before that.

OK, I'll admit it. I looked it up. In the wake of Russian President Vladimir Putin chastising Americans through the pages of the New York Times, I looked into the concept of "American Exceptionalism."

I love the letters.

"It's an embarrassment," Biff said, taking another gulp of Budweiser, "a national embarrassment."

Well, I've put it off about as long as I can.

After 25 years in journalism — honing my craft, interviewing governors and Hall of Famers, sharing stories both inspirational and tragic — it has come to this.

Let's start with a disclaimer: No, I'm not obsessed with the CRC.
By Greg Jayne August 4, 2013 6:02 a.m.
Hey, where did it go? Where is the CRC? Where is the plutonium-like fodder — both powerful and deadly — that it promised to provide?

History suggests that roughly 50 active major leaguers will eventually make the Hall of Fame.

You could spend a week or three viewing Mariano Rivera's statistics on baseball-reference.com and marveling at his dominance.

Alexa Efraimson felt humbled, and still she hinted at bigger things to come.

We don't write often about managers here at By the Numbers. Frankly, it's because we don't know what to make of them.

Considering that one year ago he had never hit more than 21 homers in a season, Chris Davis seemed like an unlikely candidate to be chasing history in 2013.

With one of baseball's most beloved franchises visiting Seattle this weekend, putting together a list of 20 Chicago Cubs factoids is an irresistible proposition.

While there was nothing magical about the post-game comments of Portland Timbers coach Caleb Porter, there is a bit of wizardry going on with his squad.

For some reason, as a young, numbers-obsessed baseball fan, I was always fascinated by doubles.

We don't know who is going to win the NBA championship, but we do know that it's not going to matter.
By Greg Jayne June 1, 2013 6 a.m.
Well, I'm glad we cleared that up. Dustin Ackley, the once and former hope of the Seattle Mariners, has been demoted to Triple-A. And the problem, we know now, is . . . wait for it . . . mathematics.

Alexa Efraimson ran to another state title Saturday, but the most compelling race is one that won't take place.
By Greg Jayne May 23, 2013 8:11 p.m.
The magnitude of Alexa Efraimson's achievement Thursday was reflected in the sound. As the Camas sophomore crossed the finish line in the 1,600 meters at the state track and field meet at Mount Tahoma High School, and the scoreboard flashed her time, a loud and collective "WHOAAAAA" could be heard from the stands.

The big names performed as expected, but Friday's Class 4A bi-district track and field meet was really about people like Camille Parsons.

What once was a gentle breeze has turned into hurricane-force winds. Major-league hitters are swinging and missing at a record rate.

When Peter Zalk, James Phillips, and Josiah Schmidt went 1-2-4 in the first race of the day Thursday, it was a harbinger of things to come for the Prairie boys track and field team.
