I’ve had very good luck hunting Monkeyshines in the West End over the years - sometimes days later. Don’t tell anyone ... and good luck with your hunt.

February 19 2015 The Year of the Sheep - Monkeyshines 2015

The rules seem strictest (even if self-imposed) with the official monkeyshine balls and medallions. I’ve found a ball in the past and kept looking. If I found another one that was more interesting to me, I’d swap it out and leave the previous one. Only take one in the end.

Since marbles are going out now I believe they count separately. If you find a marble this week and a monkeyshine next week, I don’t think anyone is expecting you to return the marble. It’d be great if you did, but the

Steilacoom has been included in the past. I found one hidden there a few years ago and I’ve heard of others. I don’t know about Lakewood or UP.

This looks like Marbleman and not the official hunt. Thank you, Marbleman!

I assume you’re referring to the pdf referenced and linked in the “red ink” paragraph.

The very idea of a machine learning based system is that it isn’t “one size fits all” as you describe it. Sure, it’s only a tool. But it is one that can track a lot more variables in real time than any individual can keep track of themselves.

I see this as a good thing.

February 24 2014 TNT Response Re #ZeeckBag Issue

Who’s doing the PR for The News Tribune? When they first received the criticism, the TNT should’ve acknowledged it. They don’t have to agree with it, but they should listen and at least pretend like they care. Instead, they choose to get defensive, dismiss the complaints outright, and delete all criticism that appears on their pages. Then they hire additional security at their building. This is not how an organization that wants to play well with the community acts.

February 24 2014 TNT Response Re #ZeeckBag Issue

The TNT’s article  about the orange bags ends with the City Manager’s salary? How is that relevant? If that’s what they consider to be a serious look at the issue, the neighborhoods and city need to double down and go get them.

I saw this elsewhere on the internet and thought it should be said here:

“Your inability to find a Monkeyshines is not the Monkeys’ fault.”

I don’t know about this year, but I’ve found one in Steilacoom before.

Where have people been finding the marbles?

January 16 2014 What goes in your time capsule?

Wow. People who write in all caps should always be taken seriously. 1) I see a link to a story and questions about it. Exit 133 does that. I don’t see conclusions. 2) This seems to hit a little too close to home for you. Would you like to disclose your connection to the subject at hand?

August 28 2013 Tacoma City Council Meeting - August 27, 2013

This is created by the convention and visitor’s bureau. They will always need some brand foundation to push our image out to writers, conventioneers, and anybody that will listen. They need one. Do they change? Yes. That’s fine. Also, this is about Pierce County and not just Tacoma. Any rant about Tacoma probably doesn’t apply to the twenty other communities around here. This is a regional image tool. This group is already talking about the region. Now we know the story they’re telling as they
