I’m (hopefully) going to spend time this week chasing down a bigger story: Veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan are winding up homeless and living in Tacoma. I’ll let you know how this develops.

The story of the big Spanaway family should also hit the paper this week.

I received this e-mail from a reader over the weekend:

Did you hear the one about the fire marshal shutting down the haunted house hosted by Alan Gorsuch of Sanford & Son? Numerous violations were cited… most correctable. But why was the fire marshal mentioning things like nudity (the girls were bikini-clad), underage drinking (not true), and someone feeling threatened by a chainsaw (it’s actually a table saw, and it’s stationary)? Those are issues unrelated to what a fire marshal handles. So, there are obviously some people who have to just chime in and ruin a great thing. Hopefully Alan can fix the code stuff, and we can get on with having fun and entertaining people. I mean it’s a haunted house for crying out loud! Some people need to just lighten up!!! Thanks for your time. Any questions… feel free to ask.

I’ll make some calls today and see what’s going on.
