The Tacoma News Tribune published an article in their "You and Me" feature, which appears in the "B" or Local section. On July 22, 2007 the following story was printed about the scale model of Galloping Gertie. As is common with publishing, some of the facts they printed were not accurate to what was said in the interview. For example, it took 4 months to build the model, but they printed 2 months. This is minor, along with a couple of other minor goofs on their part, but it still made for some interesting reading, and notariety while out in public. The timing was a factor too, as the article came out one week after the 2007 bridge's Opening Day.
