Sidewalks Chalked Around Shelton

The sidewalks in Shelton were decorates with chalk Tuesday as part of the 2017 Chalk the Walks, a project of The Joy Team, which is all about spreading joy, optimism and inspiration through the magical power of sidewalk chalk. Businesses around the City allowed children of all ages to draw on their sidewalks. Here is some of what MasonWebTV Powered by HCC found at Hood Canal Communications’ Shelton Office, Maple Glen Senior Living, and along Railroad Avenue and Cota Street. Some specific locations included Off the Wall, Cooper’s Studio, Smoking Mo’s, Mason PUD 3, Case by Case, and the Shelton Mason County Chamber of Commerce Office.

Chalk the Walks is held on the  third Tuesday in August.

Posted by Washington State Patrol on Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Patrick Happy Dog - SliderThe WSP Homeland Security Division (HSD) dedicated a new K9 memorial monument to Patrick, the first and only Washington State Patrol explosive K9 to die in the line of duty. His passing in April 2016 was a tremendous loss for the agency. Patrick was a three-year-old German Shepherd who worked in the Seattle area. You would often find him and handler Trooper Mike Allen patrolling Coleman dock. The pair started their career together at Lackland Airforce Base in Texas in October 2015. On December 10, 2015, Patrick and Trooper Allan became a certified K-9 explosive team and served the citizens of Washington faithfully.

But let’s not forget that the primary function of the commission is, precisely, to monitor those forces over time and take whatever appropriate, incremental, measures are necessary to bring about a balance.  Perhaps if the commissioners had spent less time micro-managing other departments and more on their own, mandated, duties we might not be in this situation.
