Our Democrats in name only southwest Washington politicians fail to represent a growing progressive and environmentally conscious constituency. So don’t blame failure to push a narrow business biased political agenda on urban elites. When it comes to school levies I agree that property va…

As usual for many local politicians, the Longview City Council did not do due diligence in vetting this project when they moved it forward. Mary Jane Melink was the only council member asking for more study. No secret the Mint Farm contains wetlands, is in a liquefaction zone, and accordi…

According to Methanex, June contract price for N. American methanol is $419 per metric ton. The Asia Pacific price is $350/MT. So given there is currently a trade war with China and last year China slapped a retaliatory 25% tariff on U.S. methanol, why would China even be interested in bu…

Kudos to Natalie Stricker for tackling a very tough road to improving her family’s financial future and stability. Her career choice in healthcare is in the fastest growing job area locally. Don’t know on what Ted Sprague is basing his statement that “the increased taxes may not hit Cowli…

This "business" owner owes City of Longview $200, 000 and the city is going to give her permits to try it again? How many time does City Council need to get ripped off before they get group therapy?

There is what NWIW has been telling the community and then there is what they tell potential investors. Let the public read for themselves what they are pitching to those they hope to part from their money.  In the ongoing shell game the March 2018 Investment Overview (confidential) now d…

Interesting that Cowlitz County ranks in the top third of counties in the state in employment. I'd expect less whining about lack of jobs.
