Back in the good old days, in the late ‘60s, when I was in college in the San Francisco Bay area, I remember the worry and consternation that was imagined when Lockheed Sunnyvale (remember Lockheed Aircraft) lost a huge missile contract. Politicians, engineers, mayors, all predicted dire results.

Noise disturbances increase | Letter to the Editor

Have you heard it? Or more likely felt it in your chest? That low rumbling almost sound that seems to pervade your house and life now in Bonney Lake. Maybe you have noted it before but more now? Barely on the edge of perception during the day before bed when the TVs are on and home work at the kitchen table is in progress. Now at night (all night) and most mornings it sounds like a loud rock band so far away that all you hear is the base notes rumbling through the air and your home, the structure of your house resonating with the "beat".

Question of the Day

The Seattle Mariners have played well, played poorly. Will they win as many as they lose?
