Went to Newport, Washington

Today, Cece and I drove up to Newport.  A brief meeting was arranged between myself an a lawyer  and his longtime assistant who has his practice in the county seat of Pend Oreille County, Newport.

We did our work, but when it came time to file a number of steps had to take place:  The materials had to be reviewed and signed off by the county assessor as perfect.  Next, the materials had to be reviewed by the Treasurer, and then the Auditor.  I had been through this before– the people who were the guardians of their systems had to be sure, as they should be sure, a try to be sure, that the was nothing untoward taking place.
