It has become socially acceptable these days to just slap every one on the wrist for their wrongRead More doings and move on down the road. I am sorry I wasn't raised that way. This young man at a minimum should be suspended from the team and quite honestly from the college for a set given amount of time. Don't QQ me on how that will affect his future blah blah blah....he should have thought about that before he got drunk and got behind the wheel of a car. If we ever get back to personal responsibility and punishment for crimes we might as a society actually see a decrease in crime. Not a sermon just a thought!!

I agree with you Larry. There needs to be accountability with adult responsibilities. DWI isRead More socially unacceptable and irresponsible. I think he should be on the financial hook for this year of school. If he keeps his record clean and stays in shape, try out next year, show your stuff. Then if he qualifies, renew the scholarship (assuming he has one). He is a member of society, not a hero (as many football stars are held).

Good stuff Dan. I'm good with whatever is the quickest way to get a team.
Brent Champaco May 16, 2013 at 02:15 pm
Crystal - it sounds like the Kings are not your favorite team. Just a hunch :)

I'm glad we didn't end up stealing another city's team, but that was never in danger of happeningRead More anyway because I know full damn well the NBA was never going to let it happen and was just using us to get a deal out of Sacramento.

Tacoma Narrows Airport will be attractive to private aircraft during the Open so everything fromRead More luxury transportation services to hotels and restaurants could benefit if we can bring ourselves up to 'par' with Seattle. If the weather is beautiful, boating excursions will be popular. There may be a demand for waterfront homes available for lease. And, all real estate agents should get their high end properties advertised in the appropriate publications before and after.

Perhaps it is a sign of the times but we here at the Gig Harbor RV Resort have already takenRead More reservations for this event. Will be posting the event in our news letter and on our web site as the date draws near.
Been there May 14, 2013 at 01:30 pm
Does Gig Harbor want to be like Bellevue or Seattle? I hope not.

I'm with you Brent, except in one respect. Perhaps the Sonics would have stayed in Seattle ifRead More leadership, both Wasington State and Seattle, had generated a committed vision for a stadium. At the time, our local capacity for action was nil. Sacramento, today, has generated a serious, committed effort in an incredibly short time led by a mayor. Imagine that! So, noting that distinction, Howard, David, and even Clay, are kind of absolved. The threshold criterion in Stern's mind is the will to act on an arena. In that sense, he appears consistent. As for Howard, on one hand he appears to have had his one great imaginative idea when he opened the latte site. Hansen, on the other hand, is a creative generator. I still think a team will emerge, if not now, relatively soon, say within two years.

I am so pleased and appreciative of this terrific group, led by our wonderfully focused ChrisRead More Hansen-you are keeping our hearts, souls, and dreams alive for our future NBA Basketball Team!! We will persevere! No fear-even if it is a few years off-this may be just a warm up for the final steps necessary to bring our Sonics Home!!! They are coming! One of your biggest fan and supporter!!

Any way to dump the annoying, deceptive, and potentially destructive Mackeeper ad? See thisRead More apple.com users forum for info: https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-3691

Kristie - user Carly posted this on our Facebook page: "My dad didn't run this year due to anRead More injury! Cordell Council as well as our family are all here in Gig Harbor and safe!!" Hope that helps!
Kristie Comer Matthews April 15, 2013 at 08:53 pm
thanks Carly council.... glad your family is all safe and sound. blessings for those in Boston

"The [City of Boston] will recover stronger and run the event again in honor of theRead More victims," Boston marathon participant Dr. Pat Hogan said in an email to Patch.

Life lesson for Austin and everyone that looks up to him that drinking and driving don't match. JustRead More don't do it, way too much at risk..Here's hoping he gets back on the field soon, and that he is able to spread the word on how lucky he was that no one got hurt or worse.
Brent Champaco April 10, 2013 at 12:51 pm
Well said, Jay.
Sam Shumaker April 10, 2013 at 01:49 pm
Hopefully a life changing lesson.

The only thing that makes people crazier than politics, religion or gun rights is professionalRead More sports. I suggest we invite the Sacramento patch users to join us to have a discussion on this topic. Might be fun to watch!
