If you can provide more information about where you are (like your county or zip code), we can make some quick adjustments to the database to improve location-based selection for you. I just don't know what "Tri-Cities" means in Washington State.
I actually updated that this morning, and one of the other admins has also been updating that system in the last few days. Tomorrow's refresh should look pretty good. I'll look over at Franklin County and at least get default locations in over there.
