I have lived in Bothell for 27 years. My husband and I moved here for three reasons: first, Bothell was near Redmond where we worked, and we could even commute to work by biking on the Sammamish Valley Trail; second, we happened to find a house we liked and could afford as we started out to raise our family; and third, we loved the area.
I have no quarrel with those who use their Constitutional rights to object to Shell Oil drilling for petroleum. That they are wrong in their concern has been adequately documented by responsible scientists is another issue.
I urge all the friends of Joshua Freed to call and congratulate him on the wisdom of his decision to sell the back 9 to Forterra.
Recent events in the Northshore School District have uncovered a painful reality: an epidemic of racism, intolerance and bullying in our schools.
Bravo on your pledge to focus on diversity within NSD. Academics, testing, and funding have monopolized our “schools bandwidth” for the 11 years I’ve been involved with NSD. However, I believe our lack of willingness to sacrifice time and energy from these to address social-emotional learning in our students has crippled us.
At our last board meeting many families came to share their comments and concerns regarding a situation at Timbercrest Junior High School involving racially insensitive statements and threats made by a student and their personal experiences regarding race, harassment, intimidation and bullying in Northshore schools.
Washington has a reputation as a nationwide leader on things like access to abortion and birth control, but the truth is that there is still a lot of work to be done. Right now, fair access to affordable birth control does not exist and it’s going to get worse.
The Seattle Times article that ran in Sunday’s paper clearly shows the massive amount of dissatisfaction and frustration with the mayor [of Bothell] from the homeowners of the Bentley neighborhood properties.
Usam Ahmed's letter said he attended a "protect religious minorities persecuted by ISIS" and then decried the "un-islamic violence" against the Texas cartoon contest where two people were killed.
My sister lives in Bothell. She wanted me to move there to be closer to her.
As a member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association, the conviction of Dzhokar Tsarnaev reminded me of the pain I felt when I first heard of the Boston Marathon bombing. It pained me to see the loss of the innocent lives of my fellow American brothers and sisters.
Local media (television and radio), are making our city council the "laughing stock" of King County. Apparently, we have an ethics code that is considered "aspirational." As one TV anchor said, he wished he could "aspire" to do many things, but sometimes it's too difficult.
It seems to me that there are some striking similarities between the demolition of the historic Freed farmhouse, declining reputation of our Bothell Mayor Joshua Freed, and the construction of Bothell’s pricey new city hall.
Along with 200 other delegates of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association, I went to Capitol Hill to gain Congress' support for the "Protecting Religious Minorities Persecuted by ISIS Act of 2015" (H.R.1568) on Friday. Today, I find myself again advocating against the unjustifiable and un-islamic actions carried out by extremists at a “free speech” event in Texas.
Stop being bad to nature! You're not even thinking of it. You leave garbage, and garbage is damaging to nature and damaging to nature is damaging to us!
Have you ever seen homeless people asking for food and money? Give them some.
I support our teachers and district staff as they seek to encourage the state legislature to fulfill its legal obligation to full fund education. I also support families who can be considered as part of our vulnerable population, for whom a one day walk-out by our teachers creates, not an inconvenience, but a hardship. I do not believe that the two concepts – supporting teachers and supporting families – is mutually exclusive.
Deanna Isaacs's article of April 27 (Bothell City Council, staff violated law by discussing Wayne purchase in executive session) raises more questions than it answers.
The last Bothell City Council meeting was non-committal to say the least. There was no decision to preserve any of the land, and in particular the back-nine [land of the Wayne Golf Course].
Among the minorities, Sikh community from South Asia is one of the oldest settlers who came to America to live their American dream. They live and abide by true American values.
