Indeed. Meanwhile in the Emerald City, a seemingly unrelated issue, or is it? If I were a real estate developer maybe.....

It is unrelated.

Certainty in the rail path is required for the east side.

the bellevue arena is apparently gonna be privately funded. like the article said, i can't see them spending all that money on an private arena and not bringing in the NBA later. more booked nights= the faster the arena is paid off. i'm sure someone will bring in the NBA before long if this arena happens, but could they be holding off on the NBA for now because of the lockout? seems like a logical explaination to me. plus the article said that an NHL team is alot cheaper right now.

A news story out of Yakima(?)regarding the blue-ribbon task force. I wonder if they have spoken to Don Levin yet.
