Rant & Rave: $900 lost and found

RAVE To the U.S. Postal Service delivery person who rang our doorbell and instead of just leaving the package, waited to tell us that package thieves were in the neighborhood and gave us tips to avoid losing future deliveries.

Daily Rant&Rave: Dogs aren’t allowed on Seattle beaches

RAVE To the two gentlemen who saw my car keys fly two floors down the outdoor staircase at REI at night, in the dark. The keys had landed in the mud, and the gentlemen pointed the spot out to me and offered to climb over the railing to retrieve them. It was my goof, so I…

Daily Rant&Rave: Bully’s kids are bullies

Daily Rant&Rave: Thanks, WSDOT, that feels much better

RAVE To the engineers of WSDOT who recently installed plates across the expansion joints on the Interstate 90 East Channel Bridge bike path.

Rant & Rave: Charged for time spent stuck in parking garage elevator

RAVE To the wonderful people who stopped to assist me after I was hit by a car while crossing a local intersection. I was thrown onto the wet, cold street, where I had to lie until help arrived. Despite holding up traffic during rush hour, drivers and passengers got out of their cars to call…

Daily Rant&Rave: Watch for holiday shoppers, drivers

RAVE To the stranger who kindly offered us an extra ticket to the Whitworth University Christmas concert.
