Expensive paint for ‘E’ Street
I’m a little puzzled with the article in the Post-Record of June 22: “Council gives green light to ‘E’ Street contract.”
I see where the city council has dedicated over half a million dollars to a Vancouver firm to provide “construction administration, engineering and field inspection, quality control testing,” and “bidding assistance and preparation of record drawings.” Am I reading this right? Over a half-million dollars and not a single minutes worth of actual work on the street?
Other than adding some sidewalks, isn’t what we’re talking about is repainting the lines in the street to reduce traffic to one lane in each direction, a middle left turn lane and bike lanes? Wow! Half a million dollars! That’s a lot of paint!

Rivers has proven track record
I have recently been so impressed with Ann Rivers, candidate for state representative in the 18th District. She is already writing legislation that she plans to introduce in Olympia when she is elected in November.
While other candidates are consumed with trying to run a campaign, Ann Rivers is working hard on legislation that will get our state back on track.
