The Bite Of Yakima Wants YOU — Dave’s Diary

This could be considered “misleading”.  Google search for “The Bite” and what you’ll get first is the synopsis of a 1989 movie about the aftermath of a radioactive snake bite:  After a young man is bitten on the hand by a radioactive snake, his hand changes into a lethal snake head, which attacks everyone he comes into contact with. Also, his body becomes filled with snakes. Now, he must prevent himself from hurting others.

Bad Behavior: The Average Brush With the Law — Dave’s Diary

I had the pleasure of having lunch with the mayor and the chief of police today.  Mayor Micah Cawley is a longtime friend and the chief is fast becoming a friend, too. He is a man of vision and honor. He has a passion for his work and he has a wicked sense of humor!  He is just a lot of fun to be around. He is a cat person, but I overlook that because of all his other positive qualities.

 OK, file this under “Saw this one coming”.  Premise - you aren’t passing your college classes so you drop out. You could make a case for that individual “Not Being Too Smart.”  Stay with me.  You don't tell your parents you dropped out--thus reinforcing the case for being "not too smart"!

Leave It To The Laser To Control The Weather — Dave’s Diary

This week’s weather forecast looks amazing! Low to mid 80’s thru Friday.  Global warming?  Kidding!  The feds just came out with another report on global warming which has both sides of the argument scrambling to shore up each side of their argument.  Do you think man’s activity really does affect the weather?

Dave Defends the Council Responding To The Political Machine — Dave’s Diary

I’m getting better at not taking the bait, not feeling the need to defend or challenge every printed swipe at city council.  I’ve been on council for 4 ½ years and we aren’t perfect and we’ve made mistakes for which we deserve our lumps but I still feel defensive when attacks, subtle or overt, aren’t justified.
