Yakima is situated in the Yakima Valley, which is noted for being one of the best apple-producing areas in the world, and produces approximately 75% of all hops grown in the USA. The name originates from the Yakama Nation. The Yakama Indian Reservation is located to the south and southeast of the city of Yakima. Because of the sunny climate relative to the rest of the state, a local developer erected a sign at the edge of the city that proclaims Yakima as “The Palm Springs of Washington.” Although it is not an official city sign, it is widely known and recognized by visitors to the area.

For consumers, that means that those intimidated by what opponents called the overly complex part of the law will have to learn what will affect them, particularly if they have to buy their own insurance or pay a penalty for skipping it. Employers who ... read more »
Health care services can be mislabeled too.Advertising apples as oranges? Such type of misleading advertising occurs with health care services, too. In some states the term “physical therapy” is misrepresented or inappropriately advertised to the public by individuals who are not licensed as physical therapists. This characterization is misleading to the public, illegal in some states, and an issue of public protection for patients who think they are under the care of a licensed physical therapist, but in reality are not. “Physical therapy” is not a generic term—it describes the care provided by or under the direction of licensed physical therapists. ... read more »
