Dr. Mielke is back. If you’re not familiar with Dr. Mielke, let me bring you up to speed. During a board of health meeting in March 2011, Commissioner Tom Mielke – a two-time former smoker – questioned whether nicotine was actually what made cigarettes addictive. “I had a habit of reaching into my pocket, and […]
When the official minutes of this week’s C-Tran board meeting are finalized, you’ll see this phrase: “Tom Mielke motioned, Tim Leavitt seconded, and motion carried…” A new political alliance? Well, probably not.
The prayer time before public hearings that Clark County Commissioner Tom Mielke has been pursuing will be discussed this coming Tuesday, and will very likely go to a vote. The resolution for the prayer is available here. This right here is probably the most important text of the document: “NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, by […]
Okay, I didn’t have the card in front of me, but here are the results from what I can remember.

Or maybe you are indifferent on the matter. Well either way the wait is over! It’s here! In draft form! […]
Clark County Commissioner Tom Mielke wants to get a prayer in before he conducts county business. Mielke said earlier this week that he’s interested in introducing a brief invocation period before each Tuesday’s board hearings. When Commissioner Steve Stuart asked why he wanted this, Mielke quipped at first. “I need more help than I’m getting […]
Clark County commissioners will now be taking an extra 30 minutes between their work sessions from now on. Now commissioners will have a 30 min break between sessions. Have fun with all that dead time, @col_clarkgov — Stephanie Rice (@col_cityhall) February 20, 2013 I wasn’t there for the discussion (I was in Kelso), but the […]
Those of you interested in Clark County Commissioner David Madore’s January announcement that park fees would be eliminated were probably a little disappointed by the lack of depth to the discussion at a Feb. 5 meeting between the county and a parks consultant. The meeting ended with commissioners nodding in agreement that they needed to […]
