For those of you that missed the limited engagement of Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” at the Yelm Cinemas last month, this important film returns to the area at Olympia’s Capitol Theater August 19th through 24th.
The film is also currently showing a Tacoma’s Grand Cinema.
Whatever your thoughts about Al Gore, won’t you put those aside and see the science behind the global warming crisis explained?

Former Yelm Mayoral Candidate Steve Klein formally endorses Jean Marie Christenson for State Representative, District 2, Position 1.
Ms. Christenson has demonstrated her passion, energy, and focus in bringing this District’s dynamic growth to the forefront, highlighting what was once considered a backwater rural constituency into the mainstream of this State’s issues.
Jean Marie, an ardent advocate for education, has personally embraced undergraduate and graduate studies. A former teacher herself, Jean Marie is currently a student at the District 2, Yelm-based, Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment (RSE). She is stepping forward to serve her fellow citizens in bringing about change and awareness on a whole host of topics that focus on this area’s future. Jean Marie is upsetting the status-quo by challenging the old ways of thinking in district and State politics.
Jean Marie will enter the Primary election on September 19 as the only Democrat running for State Representative of District 2 in Position 1. Congratulations, Ms. Christenson.
“Our vote in the Primary election remains vital, as many elections are won or lost in the Primary even if your candidate is the only one running from your Party. Candidates must receive an impressive percentage of the votes to be considered viable contenders and worthy to receive endorsements. Endorsements are very important to a campaign, as they equate to huge numbers of votes and substantial funding. Therefore, your vote for Jean Marie Christenson on September 19 is still very important,” quoting Ms. Christenson.
If you live in Thurston County, you will automatically receive a mail-in ballot. If you live in Pierce County, you will need to request an absentee ballot for the Primary. And remember, you must be registered to vote at least 30 days before the election.
Won’t you join me in electing a woman who will utilize her unique talents in representing us in Olympia?
P. S. This writer has extended an invitation to Rep. McCune to share his vision with this blog. He has yet to respond.

When I filed with the Public Disclosure Commission 3 months ago, on May 1st, indicating my decision to run for State Representative I was told by several of the Power Structure, the movers-and-shakers in the Democratic Party I would never be endorsed. You and I kept our focus.
I entered the race without financial backing, I had no previous experience, and I was a student in Ramtha’s School. I was told, “Three strikes, you’re out.” You and I kept our focus.
Chairman, Committee Officer, Representative and Senator, told me to get out. They would not endorse me because I could not over come these obstacles. You and I kept our focus.
Last Sunday evening, July 30th, the 2nd Legislative District Committee voted unanimously to endorse Jean Marie Christenson as their Candidate for State Representative in District 2. The Thurston County Democrats had already voted unanimously to offer their services. You and I kept our focus.
Additionally, the very same folks who said it couldn’t happen were at a party Sunday evening celebrating the one Candidate who had already won the Primary Election for the Democratic Party by entering the Primary Election unopposed by any other Democrat!! That Candidate is Jean Marie Christenson. You and I kept our focus.
Today I am pleased to announce to you:
Jean Marie Christenson is the Democratic Party’s Candidate for State Representative in District 2, Position 1, and has already WON the Primary Election!
I know that you and I will keep our focus.
