I was sitting in the stands a couple of weeks ago when the Huskies football team saw a potential victory evaporate faster than spilled beer on a hot sidewalk – all because of a referee’s call. A fan sitting just behind me meant to shout, “This is an outrage!” But instead, the words came out, “This is bull____!”
The autumnal equinox is here. Labor Day may be the ceremonial finale to summer, but the equinox is the meteorological “so long, see ya next year.”
Back to school is a special time. One million students in Washington state will fill their backpacks with new books, nervous energy and optimism and board yellow buses to return to school.
The inevitable happened last week. The Bellevue Reporter lost one of its best reporters - Carrie Wood.
Now that the Bellevue teachers’ strike is over, it’s time to ask and answer a simple question: are teachers’ strikes acceptable?
When I was younger, my dream was to become an elementary school teacher. When I told my mother, she was horrified and quickly tried to dissuade me.
Teachers went on strike here in Bellevue on Sept. 2.
My granduncle was the oldest man I had ever seen. His name was Father William Cashman, and I guessed his age at 500 or 600 years, but that was just a guess. He may have been older.

No one likes a strike, certainly not one by school teachers. The one in Bellevue is particularly upsetting.
Your first clue may be as obvious as the unexplained cuts and bruises on your daughter’s body or as subtle as her odd preference for long sleeves on hot days.
I suppose this is coming a bit late in the game, but I don’t have much going on right now - so I have decided to run for president.
Football season! Words to make your pulse race if you cheer for a jarring tackle or a long-bomb pass. Yet, for many fans, this is where our knowledge of the game’s convoluted jargon ends.
Election day, is still a couple months away but I’m ready to make some predictions on how our state will vote. I think Washington will cast its votes for Democrat Barack Obama for president and Republican Dino Rossi for governor. Here’s why.
News media mimic domestic beasts of burden: Sometimes lazy, often trainable, but always hungry.
You might have seen the news story last week: A couple of guys from Georgia told people that they had a found the body of a dead Bigfoot – and they were going to show it at a press conference, proving once and for all that such a creature really existed.
When the early vote totals were announced after Tuesday night’s primary, it looked like good news for the Democrats. Gov.
