Who Best to Serve Yakima as Mayor — Dave’s Diary

Tonight I was sworn in for a second four year term on Yakima’s City Council.  What and honor to be able to serve and have a say in the future direction for our hometown. Thanks again to all those who voted and little extra thanks to those who voted for me.  Tonight the council also voted for the next Mayor and we did what I feared most. We turned our backs on the best choice to make government work for the voters.

Biocentrism Answers the Question of Life After Death — Dave’s Diary

Ok, this one is admittedly out there a bit--but still interesting.  So many people wonder what happens after you die. Nobody has been able to determine that for sure—not counting the religious communities.

The City of Yakima is considering implementing a new curbside recycling program.  The citizen’s survey says there is quite a bit of interest…and why not when you consider Americans throw away 251 million tons of trash each year, before recycling:

  • 13% yard trimmings
  • 12% food scraps
  • 12% plastics
  • 9% wood and other
  • 8% metals
  • 7% rubber, leather, and textiles
  • 5% glass

Yakima’s New Anti-Gang Center Under Attack – Dave Responds

The conventional wisdom says, "Dave, shut up and let them have their say."  Me? Conventional?  Not happening.  My belief is that when people go out of their way to say something that is misleading, wrong or ridiculous they need to be challenged so that others won't take it as truth by a lack of opposition.

Members of the community and the Yakima City Council have spent a great deal of time and energy preparing for the Yakima Youth and Family Development center Grand Opening held Tuesday night.  There was an excellent turnout, plenty of media coverage and an article in the YHR that only drew two comments so far.  Both are critical, and that's ok, but both are wrong and both authors know better.

I'm no Gandolf, but this shall not pass!
