Cancer is an epidemic that needs to be eradicated | Letter

Today I am talking to you about how cancer has torn families apart but has also brought families together. My father was diagnosed with kidney cancer five years ago. When my dad told my two brothers and me, I immediately thought this might be the last time I would be able to talk to him. I was frightened about this. Everything else I was thinking about just vanished. All I could think about is the good and the bad times that my father and I had gone through together. The doctors told my father that the tumor was just as big as his kidney. It had been growing for 10 years. My dad smoked cigarettes every day, but after he got cancer he stopped and hasn't smoked since. Today my dad is healthier than the day I was born.

An opinion on transportation revenues generated in Bothell | Letter

The proposed Regional Proposition 1 (ST 3) is a $54 billion tax and spend proposal that would have a long lasting and huge impact on the finances of the City of Bothell and our region. ST3 is way out of the realm of reasonableness. It buys trains to Seattle at 12 times the cost of WSDOT's $4.6 billion SR 520 Bridge Replacement Program.

Bothell’s construction boom needs to slow down | Letter

Bothell's population has nearly increased 10,000 people over the span of six years. Traffic, detours, and new housing developments are creating issues throughout the city daily. King County employment rate grew 3.6 percent in 2015. Sounds good, right? The construction employment grew 18.4 percent in the first quarter of 2015.

Find out the facts and then voice your opinion on TPP | Letter

The TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership - 12 country trade agreement written by corporations in secret, with no public input) is for the benefit of corporations but not for the people. It will be brought to a vote in Congress after the elections, at the time when many congresspersons are leaving office and have no need to please their constituents. It is being pushed as a good thing by the administration, polls appear to be in favor at first glance, but if you look further, you'll find that 67 percent of the people either know very little or nothing about it. I have not talked to one person who is for it.
