As the summer approaches, it is the time of year to fix the damage that was done during the winter. This is the perfect time for scammers to come out and play. It has been reported that there is a traveling asphalt company by the name of Evergreen Paving and Seal-coating (EP&S)that is going through the eastern Washington area looking for clients.
The Better Business Bureau has received a complaint from a Wenatchee area resident and a Spokane area resident regarding this company. The Better Business Bureau is warning people about Evergreen Paving and Seal-Coating because they are unlicensed and do not seem to care about obtaining their license.
An investigator working with the Better Business Bureau contacted the company to inquire about their license, and someone working for the company stated that they don’t want clients who care about a license. Spokane area residents should beware of this company. If approached by anyone working for this company do not do business with them. Report them immediately.
Around this time of year, people need to beware of companies such as this one. They are likely to do a bad or incomplete job and skip out when they have collected their payment. Traveling companies are not a good way to go. It is best to find a business with a permanent location. Beware of asphalt companies that offer door to door sales. This is unconventional in this field of work and should raise some red flags. If searching for an asphalt contractor, do your research first.
Growing up in Spokane was interesting… and I use that word with air-quotes, but as a teenager, we always looked for something to do, somewhere fun to go with friends. Staying away from alcohol and drugs and from popular parties in town, left very few choices. This was back in the 1990′s, but today (the 2010′s), things have changed a little.
We’ve got our selves a RiverPark Square downtown, which is a nicer place to hang out for youngsters, still have the Wonderland and Patisons roller skating alley up North, NorthTown and Valley Mall, and a few bowling places. We have the ice-skating rink downtown and up on Francis in the winter.
I remember we used to hang out in Manito park too, sledding down the hills in the winter and feeding the ducks in the summer, which is no longer allowed today.
Casinos have sprouted up all over the area so a lot of young adults tend to rush out there whenever possible. Probably not a good thing for Spokane’s health, but good for the pocket-book.
An effective website clearly conveys a message about a business to the customer and drives that customer into buying the advertised product or service. Whether the business model is selling products or services via the internet or pulling customers into a real Spokane based brick and mortar store, the website needs to educate the consumers in how and why that business can fit their needs. A website can be effective and have style, but if the site developer focuses on eye-catching graphics that distract the customer away from the core message, that site is a failure. Depending on the nature of the business, in any city in Washington state, an ugly website that presents its content clearly can be more effective than a beautiful one that does not. Continue reading
To understand the role that art plays in web design, a person must first understand art verses design. Debated for generations, it would be easy to dismiss the connection between both art and design. In fact, the word “web design” has the term design in it. This only blurs the line between what is a interconnected and interwoven topic of art and design.
Professional web designers and web users can agree, web design has come a long way since the 1990′s! This includes websites that are from Spokane just the same. Why do I want to focus on Spokane websites, is because we in the technological sense are a little behind as a city. This is not a bad thing, but in terms of staying on top of the latest technological and design developments, we take it easy and not rush into it as for example a bigger city like Seattle.
Take a look at some of the top trends that can be seen in modern Web design. We see cleaner design, mobile device considerations, user experience and style as some of the elements that have changed and improved.
