Fire Chief Urges Caution on Fair Parking Lots

With drought conditions persisting, Washington Fire Chief Bill Halmich is urging those going to the Town & Country Fair to exercise caution when using grass parking lots bordering the fairgrounds. No Smoking signs have been placed prominently on the lots because of the high fire risk. Halmich also asks drivers to be aware of their catalytic converters, which could spark brush fires, particularly in high grass.
Fair Board member Jon Ballmann told the KLPW Morning Show that there will be barrels of water on the site of the lots, to help douse any potential fire as soon as it arises. The Washington Volunteer Fire Department will also be on standby in the event of any brush fires.

I am a woman. I would be more than happy to have more money in my paycheck. Too bad the Paycheck Fairness Act won't do that for me. Who wants "equality" if it comes because everyone makes less money?

Nonetheless, the Paycheck Fairness Act is the latest weapon in the War On Women, part II--2014 election style.
