Are there any blocks where every house is decorated?

2015 will bring positive changes and new programs, namely an Environmental Education Center and an Artist in Residence program. The Education Center will be located at our recycling facility and will welcome residents, school classes, youth groups, and community organizations to learn about recycling and how it is processed and sold.
With a Waste Zero rallying cry, staff at Recology CleanScapes strive to educate customers about the financial and environmental benefits of recycling and composting. We continually work to provide a quality service while reducing garbage to make Shoreline cleaner, greener and more livable.
Why should parents care about SIPs? These plans might appear to be just another bureaucratic requirement that does not have a connection to the classroom. It is true that both creating and making sense of an SIP involves digestion of data: SIPs present student data by subject areas and demographic groups, and set goals for improvement.
This year, the SIPs come with a caveat. With Washington State changing to the Common Core State Standards and to a new “Smarter Balanced” testing system, setting targets for improvement is challenging since nobody knows how scores on the new tests will compare with scores on the old tests.
Seattle City Light does not call, email or visit customers demanding immediate payment to avoid shutoffs. Anyone who falls behind on payments will receive at least two written notifications before the shutoff process starts.
If someone claiming to be from City Light approaches you at home and asks for personal or financial information, requests to enter your home, or cannot provide you with employee identification, immediately shut your door, secure your home and call 911.

“The Great Recession has had a devastating impact on Washington’s most vulnerable – children, single mothers, those with disabilities, and the elderly,” Kagi said.
“Poverty and child homelessness have increased significantly in the last five years. It’s time to recognize the devastating effect the recession and budget cuts have had on our families, schools, and communities.”
“We know that almost half our state’s children arrive at kindergarten unprepared to succeed,” Kagi said. Quality early learning can change the trajectory of a child’s life, but Washington invests less than one cent of each tax dollar on early learning. We can’t afford to keep missing this window of opportunity. All Washington’s children deserve an equal opportunity to succeed.”
“This is an ordinance my colleagues and I hoped we would never have to consider, but the unfortunate reality is that homelessness is still a serious issue in this county,” said Dembowski. “We must renew our commitment to end this systemic problem with every tool at our disposal.”
While Monday’s action is evidence that homelessness has not ended in King County, the effort has successfully funded 5,685 new units of permanent housing, and supports 2,763 emergency shelter units and 2,638 transitional housing units.
“In every part of King County, people are struggling with homelessness. By renewing this ordinance, the King County Council is acknowledging that we have much more work to do to ensure that no one sleeps outside,” said Alison Eisinger, Executive Director of the Seattle/King County Coalition on Homelessness.
“For years, organized tent cities in King County have successfully provided individuals and communities an alternative to people surviving on their own outside. They offer important additional measures of safety and stability, as well as opportunities for concerned members of the public to learn about and take action on homelessness by helping neighbors.
"Living in tents is an interim means of survival. As we approach the annual One Night Count of people who are homeless outside, the Coalition on Homelessness calls on community members and elected officials across King County to redouble the needed public investments so that no woman sleeps under a bridge, no man on a bench, and no child in a car in King County.”
“My goal is to identify long-term stable housing and put an end to the ongoing cycle of temporary and emergency shelters,” Dembowski said. “Innovative housing projects that are better options for both the homeless and the taxpayer are being implemented throughout the country, and we need to seriously consider these ideas.”

“We have an opportunity to put a brand new face on what people associate with marijuana and I hope that we can bring in those who haven’t found a cannabis store they feel comfortable in just yet.
‘Living Dockside’ is all about getting out into the natural playgrounds that surround us and experiencing the beautiful Pacific Northwest,” said Maria Moses, Director of Dockside Cannabis.

"Imagine Zillow, Angie’s List and Pinterest (because half the fun is posting photos of your completed projects) all wrapped up in one site." says Chief Marketing Officer Asha Sharma in an article by Caroline McMillan Portillo in Upstart Biz Journal.
Here's how the platform works, Sharma says, "After registering, users can see the cost and details of remodels on their own home. They can see photos of neighbors’ recent home improvement projects — including the actual cost — and see which professionals did the work. And they can peruse reviews of the 1.5 million professionals who’ve registered with the site."
And now Matt Ehrlichman has been honored as the first to be selected as Entrepreneur of the Year by the national publication USA Today. See the video story here where Matt explains and demonstrates the site.
"Looking back on the previous year makes me realize that there is no such thing as “typical year” for a startup and the “right “ strategy lies in building on your strengths and assets and taking full advantage of the opportunities that come your way."
According to the Herald of Snohomish County,
The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office dive team has ended its active search of Blackmans Lake for a missing 38 year-old fisherman last seen Nov. 6.
After seven days, they were unable to locate the Lake Forest Park man, sheriff’s spokeswoman Shari Ireton said. The Snohomish Police Department, search and rescue personnel and volunteers will scan the lake periodically for signs of the victim, Ireton said.
