The Yelm Community Blog broke all records this week for individual visitors & hits to the website everyday from Monday, May 11th thru Friday, May 15th.
This blog is a free community service.
I am no journalist and was never trained in reporting.
There is no staff, as several of you have asked.
I write local items of interest to me and record my observations.
I do this all on my own free time, including publishing each entry.
By the length of time each visitor remained on the site this last week, one can see those who accessed this blog were stopping to read and did not just happen to get to this site by mistake.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST!
On another note, the public comments posted on The Olympian story yesterday of the Thurston Highlands default have been resoundingly negative about Yelm’s city officials’ handling of this whole affair. Seems the public “got it” on this story!
And, thanks to The Olympian for carrying this important regional story, and on the top front page of their print edition, too!

As per usual, no comments were posted on the Nisqually Valley News story on the Highlands default. The Yelm locals just do not participate in their local city’s affairs, which is why City Hall has gotten away with so much over the last 8 years!
2009 is time for change, one can only hope, in who the citizens of Yelm elect to mayor and City Council. Do I expect any change? No! Do I hope there will be change? Yes! HMMM!
