The Port of Port Townsend is located on the northeast corner of Washington's Olympic Peninsula, one of the nation's best maritime destinations.
In 1792, Captain George Vancouver sailed his ship, the HMS Discovery inland from Cape Flattery, putting into Discovery Bay for repairs.  While in the area, he observed what his log describes as a "very safe and capacious harbour," which he named Port Townsend in honor of his friend, the first Marquis of Townshend.

port townsend: Your Credit Profile----CHECK IT!! - 12/22/09 04:10 AM
You Can—And Should—Check Your Credit Profile For Free December 22, 2009 By Sandra Block Savvy consumers view offers for “free” products with the same skepticism reserved for weight-loss pills, work-at-home opportunities and spray-on hair.

Some companies use the offer of a “free” credit report or score to sell expensive credit-monitoring or other subscription services. The best-known example: FreeCreditReport.com, the subject of entertaining commercials featuring scruffy losers with bad credit. Since 2005, Experian, which owns FreeCreditReport.com, has paid the Federal Trade Commission $1.25 million to settle charges that its ads … (2 comments)

That's a modest number compared with metro areas hardest hit by the housing … (3 comments)
