Stopped by the library today to take some pictures of the construction detours.
Looking north on Lincoln they have closed the crosswalk in front of the library across Main. You need to cross Lincoln first then Main and Lincoln again.
Cars heading north on Lincoln by the library, There is two lanes from Spokane Falls Boulevard to Main.
Looking South on Lincoln, notice right lane right only heading to Monroe, left lane either right to Monroe or left on Main.
Here is the new driveway on the right side of Lincoln that goes to the library parking lot.
This is from the second floor of the library showing the ramps to the parking garage and the lanes leading to Lincoln.
Here is a car leaving the garage and waiting for a hole in the traffic to exit onto Lincoln.
They have closed the sidewalk heading north along Lincoln past the library book drop, so you can not walk to the garage ramps now. They have also removed all the parking along Lincoln so the traffic can move efficiently.
This is the sidewalk along Main heading towards Monroe, it is closed just past the bike racks. The sidewalk on the south side of Main is still open, but a miserable way to get to it, across Lincoln to the east, south across Main then west across Lincoln again.

The day started out interesting as the Video hookup for the Country Holmes Christian Church would not hook up to the computer of the speaker Mary Kathryn Kozy without an adapter and no one had one on them so the new projector that EWGS had just purchased was hooked up and worked perfectly. It was supposed to be demonstrated at the board meeting today, but everyone got to see it work.
Hooking up our new EWGS projector
EWGS President Pat Bayonne-Johnson started the meeting a 9 am.
After introducing guests and the treasurers report Mary Kathryn Kozy presented her first session on DNA Fundamental and mitochondrial testing. A short break to try to eat up some of the cookies, brownies and other sweets and then on to second session. This one was on Y-DNA testing and its applications to Genealogy and a little on X-DNA. Both of these sessions were very informative and a lot of questions asked and answered so I hope everyone understands DNA now.
Next was lunch and sampling all the goodies brought in by EWGS members. Same problem as always way too much food and not enough people to eat it all up.

Next the drawing for the door prize and raffle prizes and they did not even get close to my numbers.
The last two sessions started early in order to get done early so we could get home to watch the Gonzaga and South Carolina basketball game. ( The Zags won and will play for the championship on Monday)
First session was Can you Help Me Find My Cousins? Understanding Autosomal DNA. This one has changed the scientific thought on how DNA was passed from generation to generation. The last session was Using your Results, Gedmatch and other Third Party Tools. Not sure an hour to go over these tools could even scratch the surface of this subject, and then new tools are coming online also.
