Vancouver looks to finish Burnt Bridge Creek Trail:
This is a toxic area. One would hope the Columbian has not purposely published propaganda. It’s a lovely picture, but this is a toxic area. Please stay out of it for the health of your family and your children. No doubt the “Powers That Be” are trying to promote the Burnt Bridge Creek project as a Green Jewel. It’s a dangerous jewel. Poisonous water, poisonous greenery, poisonous mud. PLEASE STAY OUT OF IT.
ALERT: We have been made aware that there are people soliciting contributions in Rosemere who claim to be representing the Rosemere Neighborhood Association.

State Sex Offender Housing Limitation Law Senate Bill #6440 and House Bill #2594
Please show your support for proposed state legislation on behalf of our neighborhoods — not just in Vancouver, but statewide. This legislation is designed to prevent level II or III sex offenders from co-habitating in the same house, as has happened recently in Vancouver, WA. This proposed legislation prevents sex offenders from establishing residence with or within one thousand feet of other risk level II or III offenders currently under community custody for the commission of a sex offense (while the sex offender is on parole).
