"Father of city's new-monorail movement says he wants to revive can-do attitude"
Seattle Times - 9/5/03
Dick Falkenbury has a vision
"It's that network approach to transportation that made us think about
what Dick Falkenbury had to say the other day. He's been searching for
a way to recycle the old Monorail system --somewhere-- instead of just demolishing
it. One suggestion is the new South Lake Union loop. We like this creative thinking..." Seattle PI, August 7, 2003
"He's about the most honest guy you would ever want to meet...
Nobody will work harder than Dick Falkenbury." Tom Carr, Seattle City Attorney
"Dick has an incredibly creative mind." Tom Weeks, Seattle Monorail Project (SMP) Board Chairman
"Falkenbury--speaking without the benefit of a microphone or a script--has
quietly dominated campaign events, winning sincere applause and even, at a
forum held by Northwest Seattle Democrats in Ballard two weeks ago, one
amen." The Stranger
Dick served as a volunteer on the monorail board for six years - and never missed a single monthly board meeting.
When Dick and fellow board members traveled to other cities to see monorails in an urban setting, they paid their own way.
more with less
The City Council gave the first monorail agency $200,000 to last
for one year - and they used that money to survive for two years
When Seattle taxpayers gave the second monorail agency money, the ETC
did the job on-time and under-budget. They actually returned(!) $300,000 to taxpayers.
The monorail is one of those rare public works projects
that is on-time and on-budget - always has been and is today.
It's time for Seattle to be the future, again!

In most health conditions prevention is wiser and easier than treatment and hemorrhoids are no exception to this rule. While they are quite easy to treat as soon as the first symptoms arise, they can evolve into a source of terrible discomfort, pain and embarrassment if left untreated. Hemorrhoids develop as a result of pressure […]
ExtenZe is a formula that is all natural and it’s supposed to be effective and safe. After all, when you’re not getting a prescription, you expend that they will give you those results, right? And you expect that it will give you other benefits, because of course herbal ingredients have to be that way, right? […]
I recently started a job as a kitchenhand at a dining hall. Since I’ve been working there, Ive learned ALOT about baking. Everything we make needs to be made in bulk due to the amount of poeple we serve each day. We make sheet cakes and cut them into slices, plate them, and then serve […]
I have not found a bread that wasn’t made from grains, but there certainly is a variety to choose from. However, one of my favorites has been – and probably always will be – finely ground spelt flour. It is termed the ancient grain for a reason, and one of the ones least likely cause […]

Almost every French pastry has two main components; a cream, and a paste or dough. There are only a few different creams and pastes/doughs that you need to be able to […]
SUGAR, PURE AND NATURAL. I am a great believer in using pure, natural ingredients where possible. I am a fan of home cooking, and don’t like using pre-prepared packs or ingredients. Sugar comes from sugar cane or sugar beet, and in many different forms – granulated, syrup, unrefined muscovado etc. Some are more processed than […]
Don’t turn your nose up at dried herbs and spices. First off, you’ll deprive yourself of any-time access to the world’s greatest aromas. Secondly, you’ll lose dozens of opportunities to improve everyday dishes because you can’t harvest or purchase fresh herbs that are obscure, out-of-season or too expensive. The more you use dried herbs and […]
