EXACTLY, Tim!!! Well Stated. I couldn't agree more with you!!! I saw Commissioner Madore turn to his own agenda when he started testing the waters for running for office. He wasn't listening to the people. If he was, he would know the majority wanted the bridges replaced but without light rail.

As far as I'm concerned, a bridge on the West Side makes way more sense. Metropolitan Portland Continues to expand westward and southward and Clark County is already busting at its seams with plenty of space towards Ridgefield and LaCenter awaiting commercial businesses (some being built right now). Even Cowlitz County is expanding (noting the obvious with regards to grain tower upgrades in Kalama). They will run out of room in the Camas area as well as near the Port of Vancouver. The Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area Act has seen to it that there is no new building anywhere east of Washougal OR Troutdale unless the people are in a designated town.

Yeah...a west-side bridge makes way more sense.

Humans are a member of the mammalia class, order of primates. Technically, we actually do wear "animal coats" unless we do a complete body shave including the hair on our head and face, over our eyes, arms, legs, and body.

As far as anybody not liberal wearing animal "coats" other than our own, you're wrong on that part. BTW, do you own leather products of any kind? How 'bout a woolen coat or cashmere sweaters or even wool socks for the winter?

JJ and luvit,

I like the positivity you brought out of kn's comment, although the Ermine "mustela erminea" and Mink "mustela vison, aka "neovison vison," are from the same Genus, they are actually a different species from "mustela frenata."

What makes you think he hasn't been here already, hawk? He's not going to just beam himself down on Earth like Captain Kirk from Star Trek. He is present in everything good according to believers.

Don't you ever wonder why there isn't a scientific explanation for everything in the world?

Whatever gets me down the road??? You asked a question and I took valuable time out of my day to try to find an answer which compared to my silly comment which referenced God and Mother Earth. What gets me down the road is usually our family car or my feet and my strength in what I believe in, but thanks for the neutral way of saying what you say...and I wish the same for you, JJ.

Just wondering...what is an Oat Tree??? Oh...silly me, you meant OAK Tree. (just teasin')

Regarding the article you posted about the makes one wonder just how much of our climate has been altered already by this crater. I'm wondering if it's the only one or if there's more across the globe. Maybe Craters of the Moon National Park would be a place to check out...or even Yellowstone. It looks almost like the crater from a geyser. In the realm of science fiction, it reminds me of something I saw on Stargate SG-1. I almost expect to see one of those ring stargates to pop up from beneath the ground. The hole is too perfect.

Actually, I was quoting scriptures from the Bible...the world's number one bestseller of all times, hawk. Didn't say if I agreed or disagreed with them...just quoted them. Yet another prejudicial strike by you once again. Some things never change. Remember hawk, JESUS loves you.

frobert — July 23, 2014 at 11:38 a.m.

Maybe someone did...and the person didn't follow the rules, bringing drought, heat and toxic air to the land. They have found signs of life on Mars, you know. I'm just being silly.

Nice misinformation bit you presented, hawkster. NIce and subtle but misleading.

FWIW, the roadway improvements in the GPNF are necessary not only for selective thinning and clearcutting by loggers who can only harvest what the USFS allows them to harvest, it is also necessary for those of us who routinely utilize the forest for not only entertainment purposes, but for foraging of wild edibles and recreational mineral and gemstone hunting. On top of that, it is also necessary for those who risk their lives fighting on the wildfire lines as well as those who are maintaining the forest in the manner of reduction and elimination of pests and diseases. They too need a drivable access out of the wilderness. And last but not least, shall we mention the importance of a secondary escape route in case of emergency??? Folks in the Glenwood area as well as Northwoods and Randle appreciate this fact.

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. Still a work in progress on my computer.

In regards to your question and comment, it was not the words of God that showed skepticism. It was my comment. Here's some food for thought, though. Has it ever been explained how Jesus Christ managed to feed 5000 men plus their women and children 5 loaves of bread and two fishes?

In regards to herbs and plants of the Earth and their significance towards better health:

Genesis 9:3: Every moving thing that lives shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.

Or what about Revelation 22:2, speaking of the tree of life???

Again...just some food for thought. It's my thought that the suggestive writings of life's discoveries were made in the Bible to begin with.

Good point, nails...and the same goes for Russia. If the rumors are true, Putin may have had everything to do with the attack on MA 17, an airliner not even destined for Russia or Ukraine.

Drift, maybe the Big Guy and Mama wanted....naw, I won't say it. They wanted to keep it out of the mouths of their babes.
