Engineers have started emergency procedures to stabilize a Washington dam after they found a 65-foot crack in the structure.
The Wanapum Dam, a hydroelectric project located on the Columbia River in Grant County, Wash., is still running after divers discovered a 65-foot crack that is 2-inches wide.
The problem was first identified after an engineer noticed a “bowing” in the roadway above the dam and later discovered that a concrete spillway was raised above the water by 2.5 inches, according to Grant County Public Utility District spokesman Thomas Stredwick.
From Gavin Seim for Congress – Live Town Hall Recording from Feb 27th Blog Post:
Tonight we did a live event that was unique for a Congressional campaign. In fact I don’t believe it’s ever been done in this district. But then we’re not running a traditional campaign. We got a lot of people involved and talking, I think we had around 100 watching live. I love seeing that.

From WA 4th CD Candidates Gavin Seim's blog post...
Got a Permit for that Free Speech? Congressional Candidate Educates City on Constitution
Some days it feels like officials want to violate the Constitution just so I can start a conversation. I don’t make it up. This stuff lands right in front of me and I do not back down on the Constitution. Not at home, not in DC. None of us should.
The race for Washington 4th Congressional District is getting interesting...
Gavin Seim, A 29 year old Congressional candidate from Washington’s 4th district officially announced his campaign against congressman Doc Hastings in December of 2013 to openly challenge the 10-term incumbent's unconstitutional voting record and for a bigger Federal government.
Have you guys heard the news of the planed construction of a new canal through Nicaragua? Don't we already have the Panama Canal? What will be the environmental impact? I haven't heard much publicity on this project, have you?
The wild west meets the 21st century with modern day hitching posts. Without government, who would build the bike racks?
*** ACTION ALERT ***
Doc Hastings just announced that he will not be running in the 4th CD.
LIBERTY has a great opportunity to take a seat in our federal congress. We have been working with a young man from Ephrata who understands self governance, a strict adherence to the US Constitution, and a genuine appreciation for the 10th amendment.
Please quickly get introduced to Gavin Seim... If you like him, please help immediately to generate some buzz on our 4th Congressional District News media. Help us get on their comments section and get some links to his web page.
Year by year
in town square
turn streets to
Rocks to toss
Now comes the
part we know
A show of force
Wait! What if -
imagine now -
As shaken people
ranks of crony's
Removes his gear
and throws it
A torch aflame
lays vibrant claim
Sage birds scuttle,
At the subtle
A splintered cackle
Green leaves whither,
Flames grow bolder,
Start to smolder;
A brilliant sight!
Their thoughts ignite,
This night is dark,
but just one spark...
According to an interesting tidbit in a book I have read, and internet searches, human flesh tastes like pork. There is no definitive answer, and I am assuming at least half of you guys are not already cannibals.
So I have some questions for the DP Brain Trust.
Is pork considered unclean by jews and muslims because back in the day it was so prone to carrying disease, or was it common knowledge that pork was similar to human flesh?
Seattle Seahawks Cornerback, Richard Sherman Was Fined $7,875 For 'TAUNTING'

NEW YORK (AP) — Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman was fined $7,875 for unsportsmanlike conduct/taunting in the final minute of the NFC championship game against San Francisco.
Sherman's fine was confirmed by the league Friday.
Gavin Seim is a 28 year old congressional candidate from Central Washington, challenging the 9-term incumbent Rep. Doc Hastings (R) for WA 4th District US Congress.
Here's what happened when Gavin called into a Yakima radio show and challenged Doc on voting record regarding the NSA and the against the Amash Amendments.
OK, so here is my hypothetical scenario: If Rand managed the Republican nomination, and Hillary was the Democrat nominee, and Jesse Ventura talked Howard Stern into joining him for a 3rd party run.
Most don't think Jesse would have a chance of winning, but would Jesse draw more votes from liberals than libertarian leaning Republicans? What if he was able to pull over 10% of the vote. Would he take enough away from Hillary that Rand would win? Perot was essentially a spoiler for George H.W. Bush. What do you guys think? Possible?
This speech says great emotion and heart! Martin Luther King Jr. is a real american champion of liberty! Every year when I watch it, I feel humbled by listening to the true words of a strong upholder of freedom!
