Primary opponent endorses Kloba for state representative | Letter

  • Sep 26, 2016 at 9:30AM

I am writing to offer a unique perspective on my former opponent, Shelley Kloba. Opposing candidates don't often speak highly of one another, however I was immediately struck by her insight into issues, dedication to working with others, and openness with me leading up to the primary.

Protect our children, put retail marijuana somewhere else | Letter

  • Sep 26, 2016 at 8:49AM

I was recently in the Seattle area visiting my daughter and grand children. When visiting I pick up my grand kids at Frank Love Elementary. Our first stop after a hard day at school is the little Ice Cream Shop a few blocks from the school on Meridian and 228th Street.

President pledges to continue fight against diseases | Letter

  • Sep 23, 2016 at 3:30PM

Good news from Washington: the President pledged to continue America's robust pledge to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria that inspires other donors and will help save millions of lives. It is the Global Fund that provides 151 countries with money for projects that battle these three pandemics while strengthening the local health care systems that carry them out. Also the House passed the Education for All Act that will help countries focus on providing sustainable programs to educate all children. With education comes higher earnings, lower birth rates, and less conflict in our world. Of course it still needs to pass the Senate, which is where our calls and letters can help. We can make a difference in keeping the good news coming from Washington.

Take part in forum on our aging population | Letter

  • Sep 22, 2016 at 8:06AM

Washington State is experiencing an age wave. People are living longer, particularly those 85 and older. In 25 years, adults aged 60 and older are projected to make up 25 percent of King County's population.

Beautifying silos is inappropriate and offensive | Letter

  • Sep 2, 2016 at 12:00AM updated Sep 13, 2016 at 12:03PM

Are we celebrating air pollution. It will certainly look like it. I am all for public art. I find this particular project (Kenmore Beautification Project to paint silos in the industrial park on Kenmore's waterfront) inappropriate and offensive. A slap in the face to all who experience, daily, the health consequences and who all who are suffering because of this industry and it irresponsible refusal to allow monitoring of the fumes and the air that it huffs and puffs into our lungs daily, in a residential city. Leave it as it is.
