In case you missed it above, the source was shared for I-937 and a statement given as to how to find multiple sources for the BPA paying windfarms for not producing power. Apparently you missed the articles in past editions of the UB on these topics. But it doesn't seem that is really what you are after.

The print article is where the editor informed me they do not print the URL for the reason stated. Nothing was stated regarding this anonymous posting area.

It seems the argument is what you may be after rather than a valid source.

downhillracer may not be aware that editors don't print URLs for sources since they do not have time to check all of them for accuracy.

Typing in "BPA pays windfarms" came up with several articles, though the story also appears in the UB so a search of their data base may work, as well.

Initiative 937 (text at: http://www.secstate.wa.gov/elections/initiatives/text/i937.pdf) removed water through existing dams as a renewable power source. It also set the mandatory increases in % of power which must be purchased by power companies through renewable sources, resulting in higher monthly consumer bills.

Sorry that you feel a statement of facts equal an anti-govt. rant.

Well stated. Don't forget about SB 5737 which would required a once-a-year visit to the home of anyone with a legally-owned "banned" gun to be sure it is safely stored. The sheriff has already stated he needs more money and manpower. How would he be able to carry out this mandated illegal search?

So true, but some people fail to realize that the government only has money to share if it receives it from taxpayers or goes further in debt!

Since some jail residents felt the TV was expendable there's not much point in replacing it. Apparently there was too much soap and shampoo available , too, so perhaps those items should be restricted.

It was heard that one area judge makes it a habit to ask defendants in his court on drug charges if they started on marijuana and the vast majority respond in the positive. But proponents continue to contend it is not a gateway drug. Really?
