Burning Ban Lifted for Grant County WA

According to the Grant County Website Press Release the burning ban was lifted on October 1st.

Now we can burn brush, etc on our properties. In Lake View Park, my neighbor the fireman tells me back yard fire pits can be up to 4 feet. And as I understand it, burning must be done in a fire pit as opposed to just burning a big pile of stuff.

For the Seahawks’ Fans

Next Game Thursday, October 22

So, on Thursday the Hawks are playing the Sanfrancisco 49ers. Their Web site schedule says the game starts at 5:25 p.m. Pacific time on CBS.

I was able to catch the game they played the other day, and understand they are having a pattern of gaining big leads and then losing the game in the 4th quarter. But Pete Carroll didn’t look too upset. Maybe they are just having to do some real-game training for some of the newer team members. Better to work out the kinks now instead of later on when their backs are against the wall for a play-off spot.
