Tim gets Published!

Last night, I spoke at a Burien City Council meeting, and a reporter for the Burien Daily asked me to send in a “letter to the editor” saying what I just said.  So I did- here’s the link that got published this morning.
The City Council meeting was about the Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP) for Burien through 2018.  I was naturally interested in what people had to say, and was internally debating myself on whether to go up and speak.  When it came time for comments, an older guy came up and said that we needed MORE parking downtown- I told myself, “that’s my sign!” 🙂

I never knew our area was so darn beautiful. Check that- I did. But I didn’t know that there was access to this area.

This will become a popular hike for our family this summer and as long as we are here.
