I hope this gets out in time! I just heard about it. Judges are perhaps the hardest races to figure out. I tend to call at least a handful of attorneys I know, to ask their opinions. They tend to have information about whether a particular candidate pays attention, respects all who come before them, get reversed by higher courts, has a broad knowledge of the kind of cases that will come before them as judges. There is a forum this evening at 7 PM, and I just now found out! I hope it is recorded for later. I will be sending information as I find in on ways we can all get information so we can be informed voters. The amount of influence each of us has is greater when there is a smaller number of voters. This is our moment!

FDA is warning consumers and health care providers that the agency has seen a sharp increase in hand sanitizer products that are labeled to contain ethanol (also known as ethyl alcohol) but that have tested positive for methanol contamination. Methanol, or wood alcohol, is a substance that can be toxic when absorbed through the skin or ingested and can be life-threatening when ingested. This link contains a list of symptoms to watch for, and a six page list of products and brands currently known to be a problem. There is also a link where reports of problems can be submitted online. Thanks to Jim Zito on E Walnut Street for the heads-up.



Would love to pass this along to some other neighborhood kids.  Who wants it? https://imgur.com/a/eq5ltw0   Nate Melanson, Cherry St  nathanmelanson@yahoo.com


I have 2 bags of rhubarb seeds to give away free. Two paper grocery bags…dried stems full of dry seeds.  ~ Jenny Maida-Young  360-353-4192


I bought a 5# bag, and then discovered the corvids don’t want them. Apparently they like peanuts, but those are far too dangerous to the neighborhood toddlers, who put everything in their mouths. Parents of babies with life-threatening peanut allergies can’t take their little ones outside because birds drop shells everywhere. And there is nothing on earth faster than a crawling baby who has been asked, “What did you just put in your mouth?” Oh well. The crows and jays hang out anyway, and look reasonably healthy. I was just hoping to make friends a little. Love/Fl!p 360-671-4511 flip@columbianeighborhood.org


Is anyone going inside the post office this week? Zeke needs to ship a package to eastern Europe and it has to be taken to the counter at the post office. We have not been in a building other than our home since early March and I’d like to keep it that way! I would rather not ask anyone to increase their own exposure, but it someone is going anyway, we would love your help. ~ Thanks, Fl!p 360-671-4511 flip@columbianeighborhood.org

No music today in hopes this will get out faster. Maybe music later…
