    Load pipe with your favorite weed, light and inhale. It’s that simple.

    Oh, you want to know where to watch fireworks, load pipe with your favorite weed, light and inhale, and turn on the fireworks coverage on TV. It will be like you were there.

    The cause of the accidents is due to the forced route of the BG trail. The tracks have been there for decades. The unsafe conditions for bikes was existing, the tracks are smoke and the accidents are fire. The accidents didn’t occur until the BG trail was extended through this industrial area.

    I am not affiliated with any business along the proposed Shilshole route. Unlike the CBC rhetoric offered up by the “I want a bike path no matter what the cost” bike groups.

    When I ride I go around Shilshole as it is unsafe due to it being an industrial area, not because of the missing link.

    Why is there an objection to a cycle track up Leary and across Market? The short term parking along this route is inconsequential.

    Shlisole is not a major bicycle transportation corridor. It is a major industrial transportation corridor. How many bicyclists use Shilshole daily to commute? Why can’t they go around? Why this route? Because it’s flat? an easy commute?

    I have more sympathy for the vitality of Ballard businesses than for a recreational trail.

    The city needs to follow their own industrial zoning rules.

    It’s an Industrial area. The best way to keep bicyclists safe is to bypass the Seaview corridor. SBSG has been at that location since 1907. Not a good neighbor? they are part of our history, our identity along with all the other manufacturing companies. Ballard industrial business’ are trying to protect our neighborhoods foundation from outside interests that think recreation is more important than jobs. The city adopted regulations providing protections to our remaining industrial areas only to ignore these protections and force this BG extension onto our community. SBSG and the maritime business community are not the cause of injuries in the Ballard industrial area. The city and BG political groups that pushed the BG trail onto Shilshole Ave. directing bike traffic into a congested industrial area are the real cause behind the multiple accidents occurring along Shilshole.

    Such drama. Nothing like a loner living in Mom’s basement to liven up this almost dead forum.

    Why not use the new multimillion dollar Dexter bike corridor? Do we need another on Westlake?

    Our constitution day or syttende Mai which means the 17th of may. It is not referred to as independence day, but often as Nasjonaldagen or National day.

    I would think that someone of Norwegian heritage could spell it right.

    Cate, anarchists bombed the police when they were dispersing a crowd during a labor rally in Chicago on May 4th 1886, it became known as the Haymarket affair. The Haymarket affair is generally considered significant as the origin of international May Day observances for workers.

    No worries, as I understand the stolen car situation in North Seattle, Subarus are the favored transportation of the criminal set. There are easy to steal and cheaper than a cab and usually show up somewhere after the thieves get where they are going.

    1. Cut operating expenses, 2. Raise the cost of riding the bus, 3. Stop trying to fund buses, bikes and bullshit with a car tab tax.

    I’ve had many replaced, in a shop and in front of my house and business. I had one done a few weeks ago and used Speedy (contracted out to Novus). They were $60.00 cheaper on OEM glass than Safelite. They did a great job, it was about an hour, very professional.

    I like Safelite but they seem to be on the higher end.

    Also, OEM will cost $40.00+ more than the alternatives.

    Paint stores in Ballard
    Parker Paints 14th and Market Good
    Sherwin Williams between 15th and 14th on Leary Better
    Miller 15th and Leary on West side of Bridge approach Best
    Fred Myer, don’t bother

    Doors
    Franks Lumber (the door store) North City
    Builders Hardware on Elliott by Magnolia Bridge

    Wood Screen Doors
    There is a place on 8th next to the sandwich shop around 67th? Can’t recall the
    name.

    New screens for screen doors
    I like Crown Hill hardware, they are fast, reasonable prices and do great work.

    If the door is in good shape I would strip the paint with a heat gun, sand, primer and repaint. Pick a warm dry day, remove door and hardware leave the hinges on. This wood be a good time to update door locks. By high quality primer and paint. Use semi gloss or gloss for easy cleaning.

    Complaining about noise occurring in a maritime industrial area is like complaining about jet noise after you moved next door to SeaTac Int’l.
