Aw, man...I still haven't even had time to write up the stand-in McEntire scandal in its entirety, and even more craziness is erupting in Port Angeles.
First and foremost (and as you saw here first), Cherie Kidd's halfhearted opponent in the City Council race, Dan Bateham, has withdrawn. His late withdrawal means his candidate information will remain in the voter's guide. All of which is a curious, curious repeat of what happened the last time Cherie ran, and Cody Blevins withdrew at the last minute, too late to be removed from the voter's guide.
Now, mind you, neither Cody "you might have heard of my grandfather" Blevins or Dan "shaky cam" Bateham were the strongest of candidates to begin with. But they both were pushed to run, and they both decided to drop out. Which could mean that whomever was pushing them to run doesn't push too hard after the initial paperwork is in, or, it could mean that Cherie, pathetic, clueless and desperate to be liked Cherie, simply made them both a better offer.
Meanwhile, speaking of crazy caving...Across the street at the County Courthouse, Selinda Barkhuis is finally surrendering...While also crying (wolf?) about an undisclosed (and life-threatening?) "medical condition" that will (supposedly) keep her sidelined until mid-October. I know that dealing with crooks and cretins like Jim Jones and Dim King Jim can make you sick, but not that sick. So this becomes just one more weird twist in the ongoing bizarre saga that is life in Clallam County.
Stay tuned for further developments, I'm sure...
