Links Back to the Week That Was 2/22

Aaaargh!  It happened again!  I did get time to write some more posts this week, but they’re over at the Richland and Pasco blog sites.

So, this past week, what went down?

Well, the HUGE news was the mall closing down for three hours while they looked for the third suspect in a JCPenney break-in.  As a former employee at the Columbia Center Mall, let me tell you – they NEVER close that place down.  Mostly because they want to avoid stores suffering sales losses like this stories relates.  But, I, the eternal optimist and former store manager know that the two hours between 10 and noon are NOT teeming with people, especially on a Tuesday in February, and so I’m sure the stores’ bottom lines were not drastically affected.

Money for Hanford!  Money for Hanford! Hanford is getting $2 BILLION from the stimulus package. This can create up to 11,000 local jobs. Yes!

And not to be snarky, but perhaps the reporter who penned the story for the web site might need one of those new jobs, either due to his or her unfamiliarity with the subtle nuances of English language, or just a typo –

“I was calling my friends yesterday telling them to get there resumes ready because a lot of my personal friends have lost their jobs,” said Rebecca Holland, from Washington River Protection.

It should be THEIR resumes, shouldn’t it be?

People in Olympia talked up our future and tried to lower taxes in the present.

And that’s what I’ve got, people.  Have a great week!

My husband and I came to the Tri-Cities in 1994, and we thought it would be a temporary stop on our way to larger cities. He was a television sports anchor at the time, and we planned to go wherever the "next step up" took us. Twenty-plus years later, we're still here and we've loved every minute of it! We have two children now, and we've found the Tri-Cities area is a wonderful place to raise a family. It's a great place to do outdoorsy things -- I like to hike Badger Mountain or run along the river path. I also love reading ... by a cozy fire in the winter or a beautiful picture window in the summer (with the A/C on!). I've been a licensed Realtor since 2004. I earned my managing broker's license in 2016, which means I can run my own brokerage, or create a team of real estate agents and supervise them, which is exactly what I did when I formed the Cari McGee Real Estate Team in 2018! We have administrative and marketing personnel, as well as additional agents to serve you. I became a director of the Tri-Cities Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 2016, became Secretary/Treasurer of the organization, and was elected to Vice President in 2019.
