PCS editor follow up:
Jovita Blvd closed SAT AUG 23, from 6 AM to 4 PM, says City of Edgewood construction road advisory sign.
Closure is from 114th to West Valley Rd.
A: According to a Pacific patrol officer, and VRFA’s first responders, the construction crew will let through emergency vehicles….hmmmmm, how about the regular police patrols for Pacific’s west hill neighborhoods?
Maybe the city’s Public Safety Director will elaborate during his Report at Monday’s City of Pacific Council Meeting?
Pacific’s mayor, Leanne Guier, will take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge TODAY, at 3 PM in the City’s Centennial Park. We hear the Kids from the Gym/Rec Center will be dumping the ice!
Location: Centennial Park, 100 3RD AVE SE (Next to Senior Center) Pacific WA 98047
Challenge-ees can “opt-out” of the icy water dump by donating to ALS, but I bet Leanne will make a donation and take the Ice Bucket(s), and challenge a bunch of people, too! Way to Go , Leanne !!!!!—-pcs
"Moby Chick, Epiloge: My wayward, broody, sneaky, free-ranging, Americana hen has been found and captured. She had 13 eggs hidden in a nest under blackberries and some vines. She came back to the chicken coop every night but the last two…so I thought the coyotes or raccoons got her, but her camiphlouge was so good predators didn’t find her. Anyhow, the mystery of "no blue eggs" aka Moby Chix, is solved. the "capture" will have to be posted on youtube, it is a lot longer.Stay tuned!

"In June, the city of Fife approved an outright ban
on marijuana businesses. One prospective pot store is suing the city in
Pierce County Superior Court and hopes to overturn the ban.
The case could cement Washington’s pot law or unravel it, depending on the success of arguments from the State Attorney General’s office and the ACLU, who have both intervened in the lawsuit.” Source: Seattle Times* Online.*

The annual show and shine is the non-profit’s big fund-raiser of the year. Proceeds go to help pay for living expenses of Terry Home residents,
Terry Norman was an a 18 year old young fellow severely brain-injured in a car accident, and then moved to a nursing home… but his mom wanted him to be with people his own age. It took her ten years, but she did it!
Terry Home Inc opened in Pacific in 1996 to provide age-appropriate living for Young Adults with Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI).
Terry Home Inc opened it’s second residential home in Auburn last year to meet the need for “beds” for young adults with TBI.
Sadly, Terry’s mom, Mary passed away this summer. But Mary’s vision was strong, and the Board of Terry Homes I & II carrys on her commitment to young adults with traumatic brain injuries.
