  1. Dear Rebecca,

    Thanks! I appreciate you taking time to write notes about the meeting tonight. I want some traffic calming and a stop sign by the school.

    So sad that we have to have these human sacrifices before we confront the car gods.


  2. Julia Cadieux says:

    Thanks for the thorough coverage of the meeting tonight. I wish the principal of Eckstein had spoken. I’m curious as to why there is not a greater presence of crossing guards during school hours. I think they could help a lot because they do effectively create a stop sign and stop the cars.

  3. What time will the bus curb be painted? After school closes or earlier? Thanks!

    • Looking at the school’s website (ecksteinms.seattleschools.org) , the students will be dismissed at 12:20 PM. I would guess any painting would happen after that.
      We live just down the hill from Eckstein, and will be heading out to look for paint action around 12:30.

    • It’s done! I missed it. I was so hoping to have a post titled, “Watching Paint Dry at Eckstein (LIVE COVERAGE).” Oh well.

  4. Hey, that’s the greatest! So with ll this brain power AWHFY?

  5. It’s great to find an expert who can explain things so well

  6. Hallelujah! I needed this-you’re my savior.

  7. At last, someone comes up with the “right” answer!

  8. I’m not easily impressed. . . but that’s impressing me! 🙂

  9. That’s not even 10 minutes well spent!

  10. You’ve captured this perfectly. Thanks for taking the time!

  11. That’s a shrewd answer to a tricky question

  12. Gee willikers, that’s such a great post!

  13. This info is the cat’s pajamas!
