I’ve lived in the Randle area for the past 20 years, moving here from Kent in 1999 to get out of the city life and never looked back. I have three children, my oldest daughter lives in Seattle and the younger daughter and son live in Randle. I’m blessed with three beautiful grandkids.

Broadband Survey Results
A while back I wrote about the broadband survey that the Lewis County PUD was conducting to assess the need for better, widespread internet access for our rural communities.
The results are in. The PUD received over 3500 responses to the survey. 98 percent of those who completed the survey indicated that they consider internet to be an essential utility. No surprise there!
Now that it’s known how the public feels on this subject, the next step will be lengthy one. As you know the wheels of progress turn slowly, especially when the price tag is so high.
The PUD’s first part of this project will be to extend broadband access to the under-covered area from Chehalis to Pe Ell out Highway 6, The plan has a 5.5 million dollar price tag and has been sent for approval sometime this fall. It would bring broadband service to 800 to 1000 customers and take three years to complete.
When East Lewis County will see any additional internet access hasn’t been addressed yet.
Have a good week,
