|At first I was totally going to run downtown to join the YMCA for their co-ed topless steam rooms.
...then I looked at the towels. Now I have these horrid visions of the Village people and the YMCA song.
So, I'll be hiding under the covers and crying for a week.

|From my father's accounts, naked used to be the norm at the Downtown Y. We're talking swimming, steam room, basketball...ah, the 70's.|

|Pierce County failed to inspect properties for tax purposes as required by state law for seven years, and the blame lies squarely with the county’s former assessor-treasurer and his chief deputy, according to a new report.
The report concludes then-Assessor-Treasurer Ken Madsen and Deputy Assessor-Treasurer Kathy Fewins directed employees to perform statistical appraisals of properties for tax purposes instead of the in-person inspections required by law. Then they directed employees to pass off the statistical appraisals as in-person – or “physical” – inspections in reports submitted to state and county officials.

|Inspections done by Pierce County appraisers have turned up thousands of commercial properties that were undervalued or overvalued for tax purposes, according to Assessor-Treasurer Dale Washam.
Washam says the assessed value of nearly 6,800 commercial properties rose by a collective $1.6 billion after inspections. The value of another 2,600 properties fell by a combined $599 million.
It’s difficult to determine the specific impact of the assessment changes because Washam declined to answer many questions about them. He won’t say why the properties were undervalued or overvalued, except to say they weren’t inspected. And he won’t divulge the location of specific properties.

|I for one want this investigated. I've seen the evidence, and there's no doubt in my mind it NEEDS to be investigated. The 1.5 billion dollars in under-assessed commercial properties (so far) and 588 million in over-assessed commercial properties (so far) proves that taxpayers, at least those who own the commercial properties listed here, were paying either too much or too little taxes. Those who were paying too little shifted the burden onto others.
Instead of trying to paint Dale crazy, I suggest you spend some time reading the evidence which clearly shows the taxpayers have been harmed though falsified inspection data and doctored records.
