You Don’t Want to Miss the Spring Train to Serendipity

Rose and I had an idea for a family homecoming last month. We hosted our kids for a week on the spring train to Serendipity. Our son lives with his wife in London; our daughter and granddaughter live in Bellingham, WA. The plan worked. It was great to have the kids home. Our children have always enjoyed the outdoors—in backyards, parks, gardens and the wild. Molly and Cooper, when they were young, even made a little walk-around money, collecting black-eyed Susan seeds for Jelitto Perennial See...

Despite Self-Congratulations NW Anti-Gunners Haven’t Stopped Violent Crime

Efforts by gun control advocates in the Pacific Northwest haven't stopped bad people from committing violent crimes, while ratcheting down on the rights of law-abiding citizens. (Dave Workman) U.S.A. –-( “This year in Washington (state),” the self-congratulatory email from Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America’s Washington chapter read, “our volunteers made their voices heard.” But those voices could not drown out the ten gun shots heard on a dramatic 911 audio released by...

Reverse Mortgage LOs Find Success With Unusual Marketing Moves

For many originators in the reverse mortgage business, there are a series of tried-and-true methods that can be followed for someone to find his or her next prospective borrower. Typical examples include forging relationships with trusted advisors, meeting seniors face-to-face at community centers, or becoming affiliated with local commerce organizations. Sometimes, though, originators can find business by looking outside the box in places not typically associated with these more standard met...

Origins: Taking Over Reverse Mortgages in a Corner of the Country

Bellingham, Wash. is not a town that many people have heard of. When someone from Bellingham is asked where they’re from by someone outside of Washington state, it’s usually easier to just say “Seattle” than to walk them through a geography lesson detailing the most northwestern corner of the Pacific Northwest. Brandi Braley Situated roughly twenty miles south of the Canadian border and about 80 miles north of Seattle, Bellingham is a medium-sized college town – home to Western Washi...

Best US ski resorts for spring break

Spring Break doesn’t have to be about the beach. Nowhere can you complement the parties and late nights of a proper spring break with outdoor adventure and even a bit of exercise like you can in a ski town. These five skiing and snowboarding areas offer ample opportunity for the whole shebang. You should still bring your swimsuit, though, because the hot tub has your name written all over it. 1.

Stephen, Murdoch Fastest Skiers ‘to the Sun,’ Hundreds Revel at Inaugural Event

 In a fitting setting for the the inaugural Ski to the Sun Marathon and Relay, hundreds of skiers emerged from a fog-blanketed morning dreamscape in Mazama, Washington as they cruised down the Methow Valley to brilliant sunshine and the finish at Sun Mountain Lodge. Kent Murdoch, who splits his time between Mazama and Fall City, Washington, took advantage of his familiarity with the final climb to lead the marathon field over the 41 km course, passing a fading Liz Stephen in the last kilome...

What the F*&@ Happened to All These Airlines?

I haven’t done an Ask Cranky post in awhile, and this one seemed like fun. Hi Brett,I was looking through the archive of “Who the F” articles you’ve written through the years, and I think it would be cool to see a follow up on each of the 19 airlines you’ve covered. Some have taken off and become extremely successful like Allegiant, and some are PeoplExpress. I’d love to read a where-are-they-now? Thanks! Great idea.

Street tracker gold: building a road-legal Harley XR750

The biggest cliché in motorcycle journalism is the ‘listicle’ of the best-looking bikes ever made. If we ever run out of ideas and succumb at EXIF, you can guarantee that the Harley-Davidson XR750 flat tracker will be in our list. And we’d lament that it was never street legal. So this streetable XR750 from Brad Peterson is right up our, er, street. And it’s no replica or lookalike, either. Power comes from a genuine factory race motor, used briefly in 2007 by National #80 Rich King, which...

Outside Bellingham, a co-worker swiped a man’s Coke can. Police say it cracked a 28-year-old murder case.

A Whatcom County murder unsolved for decades is going to trial next year, thanks to a private citizen. She obtained a used Coke can from a man who had previously refused law enforcement's request to submit his DNA. But that key evidence also became what threatened the prosecution’s case.

Free Skiing for 5th Graders in Washington, Idaho & more!

Free Skiing for 5th Graders We learned of several FREE skiing (and often snowboarding) options for 5th graders in Washington (& parts of Idaho as well) last year & it looks like they are back again this year. This is a great opportunity for kids to try out skiing for the first time to see if it’s something they want to pursue further. The good news is that we should not lack for any snow this year in the Northwest as there is already a ton of snow in the mountains, so it’s a great time to h...

How Do We Raise More Farmers?

I may have come across the future of American farming. Mind you, what I found was small-scale farming, but if farming and rural communities are to survive, it may come down to farm internships and incubators to nurture young farmers. When Rose and I were visiting family last month in Bellingham, WA, we went to the Saturday Farmer’s Market. In the midst of vendor stands full of veggie samosas, meat pies, cut flowers and produce, I found Cloud Mountain Farm. Business was booming. We bought plums,...
