and, "Closing a Woodinville Landmark"
Once the County installed gates in front of the parking area (for the old club house and country club) it was only a matter of minutes ... and up popped several declaration signs, from the new masters. New rules are now in force.
There's even a phone number if you want to rat on someone who has a dog on a leash over 8 ft. in length or, heaven forbid, they are walking around with golf clubs!
I have a feeling there will be a bunch more signs in the days to come. Signs that more or less will say:
"You will not have fun unless you pay for it."
There's something Kafkaesque about forbidding the playing of golf on a golf course.
Then again, I've never worked in a department within a local government. Nor have I spent hours sitting around big tables deciding how to profit by making changes - both to the land and to people's lives.
