Was out at Tiger doing a hike up Lingering to bootleg and they were packing up on the 23rd.

Yes, I stopped by on the 26th to drop off some holiday food and it had vanished!

Not sure where they went at this time.

Many never left. They dispersed into woods around preston trail. Much debris remains.

I'll take a muddy tent carcass over Eastern Washington's beer cans and shot gun shells.

County truck was slow cruising the recently graded Preston trail today. Much of the winter's garbage is removed. Still a couple tarp shelters deeper into the North hillside but everything between the trail and I-90 is cleared out.

Ellensburg has a camp as well -- just not as well organized.

https://www.dailyrecordnews.com/news/focus-is-on-survival-at-homeless-camp-near-canyon-road/article_faf7f99b-734d-5b48-8ba2-2d6232c1db0f.html

Statistically Kittitas County has about 0.6 homeless people per 1000 population vs King country with 1.2 homeless people per 1000 population.

But that's a bit improvement from 2010 when Kittitas county's homeless rate was 3.2 homeless per 1000 population.  Whereas King county's rate has doubled since 2010.

I wonder what happened to improve Kittitas county's numbers -- hopefully it wasn't something like what Las Vegas did -- started buying their homeless people one-way bus tickets to SFO, SLC or LAX.

^ The issue is certainly not unique to Western Washington or King County, in spite of those who wish to perpetuate myths.

NYC has more homeless people per capita than Seattle -- yet it is fairly free of garbage-- one reason is the 5 cent per bottle and can redemption value.  Homeless people scour the streets and the parks and collect them.   Whereas informal homeless camps areas here tend to have "midden piles" of discarded bottles and cans.

The other reason it is cleaner is the legions of sanitation employees that sweep up the parks and streets.

^ in their infinite wisdom the powers that be in Olympia have chosen repeatedly to not tack on a deposit on bottles and cans here.

on Maui the homeless guys dig through trash cans for aluminum containers they can sell for cash.

apparently they don't have the same deposits on plastic bottles. on Oa'hu at the overlook on Tantalus Drive the plastic bottles were piled up two feet deep on the outboard side of the rock retaining walls alongside the pavement.

The reason there is no deposit on bottles is the dogged resistance of the beverage industry. The legislature was bought off and citizens replied with several initiatives which were fought with big money from the industry. Elections have consequences.

Ummm Centralia, Aberdeen, Spokane and an encampment was cleaned up in Omak last winter.

During the 1960s, there were "hobo camps" on the river bank south of the bridge in Wenatchee.  The population increased during Apple harvest.  Homeless have always existed but the terminology has changed.  We used to call them bums.

Meanwhile, this area is constructing apartments for the low paid agricultural workers.  Rent should be around $300/mo.  Yakima ha converted a large motel into farmworker housing.  It won't work for all homeless because the housing is for people who are employed.  Maybe more homeless ought to pick fruit?

What's especially fun about sock puppets is that you can make each one unique and individual, so that they each have special characters. And they don't have to be human––animals and aliens are great possibilities

well let me ask this... have YOU ever picked fruit?
Just to keep this honest, yes I have picked fruit in wenatchee. Some orchards you pick a variety of red apples other orchards you pick yellow. You must be much more careful on the yellow skinned apples or your finger pressure from picking will show and that is not acceptable so you have to go slower and you pick less so you make less money...As noted above the rent for pickers was 300 dollars.. How about doing this...You want people to pick because if you dont have them you cant get your apples to market so give the shelter for free....(novel idea hey)

Yes.  I had to.  There was no other way for me to pay for school.
