FERRIES: No mystery when low tides are due

Radio and print media do a good service advising ferry users of cancellation of runs because of low tides.

Tide charts are published more than a year in advance. Why doesn’t the state ferry system just not list those runs it knows will not be operating?

    Roll_On, I totally agree.

    Lest we forget, ferries fall under the DOT. We all know just how well they do everything within their jurisdiction. Why would one expect a different outcome with this issue. Add into the mix that if schedules were actually dependent on the known tides union jobs would be lost due to the excess that would pile up on top of the excess people already plowing money into the union coffers. Not a chance they will cut off their own cash cow.

    Good Day! Roll_On’s Detective Service.

    We have no life so we worry about who is behind which moniker on the comments threads.

    Of course we don’t worry about who we are.

    How can we be of service to you today?

  4. It is astounding, so was the miscalculation when the barge with the part for the new bridge hit the old one, and the nalley valley ramp fiasco.

    Speaking of no life… one who spends the better part of their day here has soo much room to talk.

    One of my favorite internet comments (aside from “your stupid”) is when someone comments about how much “time” someone else spends on a blog or thread. Now mind you, it would require that the accuser take the time to monitor and calculate said time of the other person, but that is a good use of time…..right?


  6. whatIdo says:

    No, all it requires is a casual observer glance at a few letters. Interestingly enough, the posts you write 9well, at least most) remain in the thread.

  7. For some reason, the TNT does not like anyone referring to the person using the name of the city NE of Puyallup.

    The moderators must be back from vacation, because my comment regarding that city name was removed today.
