It helps combat anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions (awesome) and saves money.
My only beef with it is the dilemma if one forgets to put out the garbage (big trouble as it won’t be picked up for another two weeks.Same thing with the recycling.One has to be very vigilant and not make a mistake Before forgetting to put out the weekly garbage was a darn I missed it but workable.Now it can be a bigger smellier hardship.
I have downsized my garbage service to save money on my utility bill but

July 25 2014 Every-Other-Week Trash Pick-Up Update

I think that the Tacoma City Council will be safe for a while (again) from Gadfly Robert Hill as I just looked upon his name at WA Courts online and saw a Robert Jesse Hill booked in the Kitsap County Jail on a Felony Promoting Prostitution charge with a $150,000 bail.Not 100% sure but I think that it’s him.

July 12 2014 Tacoma City Council Meeting - July 8, 2014

How about bum shacks and a tent city there for the street people that normally live in cardboard boxes.

June 22 2014 Tacoma Dome Transit Oriented Development - Who's Interested?

I am commuter cyclist on a specific route so personally I’ve never riden yet on the Scott Pierson trail.Is that where they just have a crosswalk between the trail parts in that busy area?
If so maybe they could put up a narrow elevated bridge?
It might be costly yet how much are lives,injuries worth?

June 18 2014 Tacoma 2025: What's Your Vision for Tacoma?

Already there is a lot of on street (Motor Vehicle) parking on those fairly narrow streets in that multi family/single family home part (the orange/yellow colored map section) area so a bicycle lane would be futile without banning on street parking.
Biking is not too bad right now as long as there is not a lot of motor vehicle traffic.

May 22 2014 (Re)Planning the Tacoma Mall Area

Most People should commute to work no more than 10 miles (5 miles or less is better) from where they reside.
Auto Dependency is harming much of life on Earth.

May 21 2014 Finding the Right Job-Housing Balance for Tacoma

With 10 story multi family housing where will people park their motor vehicles?
If it’s self contained it might work (except for insane local area auto dependant gridlock traffic)
With a massive increase in Motor Vehicles due to increased density it will be difficult to cross any street in the area without street lights,crosswalks with signals etc.
The only way to mitigate this would be to eliminate the motor vehicles or limit them somehow.
Eventually in several decades petroleum fuels will be

May 21 2014 (Re)Planning the Tacoma Mall Area

I need to ride more anyways but I was disappointed seeing so few people on bikes on Earth Day.In fact I saw little mentioned of Earth Day in the newspapers or online.
It bummed me out as though saving the Earth and most species means nothing compared to the almighty dollar.I saw only one other bicyclist that day (April 22nd) most people just didn’t care as I saw them driving their fossil fueled CO2 emitting monsters.

May 01 2014 Get Excited for Bike Month!

Motor Vehicle traffic will get worse but in the calculus due to petroleum world resource depletion issues and even alternative fuels fortunately congestion will diminish just in a couple of decades as fuels or even energy becomes much more prohibitive (costly) and scarce.It will become unsustainable as there will to quote a title of a famous study from the 1970’s called the Limits of Growth.By 2040 or 2050 the Interstate Highways system itself will become mostly a Velomobile,surrey,bicycle or

April 18 2014 I-5 Congestion Around JBLM - How Do You Fix It?

If I had not changed service levels this would have become a never ending trauma/torture costing me around $35 a month for 60 gallon service I didn’t need (comes to roughly $420 a year).

Edit sorry I meant around $35 a month EXTRA for 60 gallon service than for 30 Gallon service.

January 09 2014 Every Other Week Garbage Pick-Up

Contunued

I can understand workers being wrong but I will not like being forced to pay for services that I don’t get.One can never know because often times someone is overbilled because of a possible embezzlement possibility on the part of greedy/corrupt accountants/billing workers (Hey if tens of thousands of ratepayers were overcharged that would add up to lots of money right?). I am not accusing them of this though but there was clear resistance on their part either because of this new

January 09 2014 Every Other Week Garbage Pick-Up

If you request a switch your level of service at the same time that the city utilities solid waste department phases this in your area you might have headaches.Check your Utility Bill closely and contest any overcharge.

I was still being overcharged for a 60 gallon garbage container service level on my bimonthly utility bill during the period in which my pickup had changed to the Every Other Weekly Garbage pickup area.
I had also switched to 30 Gallon Garbage Every Other Weekly service and

The city of Tacoma would have been fabulously rich if it had listened to the advise of Robert Hill and invested in Gold at the time no matter how nutty Robert Hill seems to appear to be.

January 05 2014 What will we be talking about in 2014?

Wow a Tacomic we can comment on without having to use Facebook.
This is so awesome.

How about RR Anderson as a city council member choice
At least he would make us laugh and might even make watching the council meetings on TV Tacoma funny and entertaining again

December 17 2013 District 1 Bingo

I lived next to a townhouse that was built next to my single family residence 5 years ago.They each have a parking garage and a driveway.Guess what most of the residents use the garage for storage and have 3 or 4 motor vehicles.One resident chain parks his SUV’s in front of my house and occasionally some dum***s parks in front of my driveway blocking my right of way.Trust me on this.They can build underground parking all they want but on average each resident renter dweller or family will have

December 13 2013 Are You Ready For a New Proctor?

Just appoint a valid sane person to the city council like Robert Jesse Hill (he can serve from his jail cell and will soon be released from in a few months from, now).
