Cutting to the core to learn about Ledgewood landslide
May 03 2013, 8:52 AM
Hoping to learn more about the ginormous landslide that rocked Ledgewood last month, geology experts spent much of this week drilling a 280-foot deep hole atop the bluff.
Under the direction of GeoEngineers, a Seattle-based firm hired by Island County, a drilling team dug a hole so deep that it went below sea level. It was drilled in the county’s right-of-way along Firecrest Avenue.
Taking regular samples along the way, the idea is to find out a little more about what caused the slide, when it will happen again and determine the overall stability and safety of the area.

Second, if these folks drive Whidbey Island Naval Air Station from our island by depriving it of the ability to carry out it’s assigned mission, are they then prepared to make those of us who lose our jobs, our businesses, or our tenants, whole from the loss they create?

The joke around Nichole Porath’s home is she wasn’t the first runner in the family to get a sponsor.
Mesa, the family dog, beat her to it.
Porath, 29, gave up her job as a finance manager to run full-time with her eye focused on training for the Olympic marathon trials.
But before she landed a contract with Brooks Running Co., her dog put her paw print on a deal with Stunt Puppy, maker of a hands-free leash that latches around a runner’s waist.
