Links Back to the Week That Was 4/5

By in Week That Was with 0 Comments

Wooo-hoo! My birthday was on Wednesday, so I’ve been really busy chowing down on cake and haven’t been looking too hard for links.  But I did find a few –

On Thursday, money for jobs was announced. Over Friday and Saturday, over 2400 people showed up for a job fair held at the Shilo Inn in Richland.

“On top of ol’ Bad-ger, all covered with snow…”

Okay, not covered, and not really ‘old’, but it’s still an attraction.  Friends of Badger Mountain, a non-profit group, combined resources with the state of Washington in order to buy the 150 acres on top of the mountain.  But, they were unable to do so, due to negotiation troubles with the land owner.  It’s a tough call  – keep some space open and undeveloped, or make a ton of money as our available land area shrinks and we head into a seller’s market.  I don’t know what I would have done in the land owner’s shoes.

And if you have time to kill while musing about what you would do if you owned 150 mountain-top acres, or if you’re waiting for a call-back from one of the Job Fair companies, go check this web site out. The Tri-City Herald ran an article about this eagle-watching phenomenon.  I could only watch until the first big wind came up and started ruffling the eagle’s feathers.  I wanted to high-tail it over to Hornby Island and erect some sort of shelter for the birds.  My officemate keeps it on in the background and sometimes I hear the call of the eagle while I’m working on other tasks.  I worry so much about those darn birds catching pneumonia!  OK, you’ve been warned.

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.
