Let me start this off by saying this isn’t intended to offend anybody. It’s actually meant to do quite the opposite.
Have you ever felt like you were less significant than the people around you? I have. Back in sixth and seventh grade, I was living in Ohio, which is a lot different than living in Washington, and I was a skater.
Unfortunately, your Editor’s Note in the Sep. 18 issue of the Reporter repeats a couple of incorrect statements by the city and proponents regarding Bothell’s so-called ‘Parks and Public Space’ levy on the November ballot.
Let's begin with the assertion that our Second Amendment rights will not be violated.
Neighbors, if you still have a land line you are very likely receiving dozens of calls from "research firms" claiming to be conducting short polls.
Thank you for Sarah Kehoe’s thoughtful piece on Jerry Munro. As the article states, Jerry Munro left behind a legacy by helping to green the yards of homes throughout the region.
I am writing to thank you for your editorial last week in the newspaper. You ticked all the boxes as to why the upcoming Bothell Parks and Public Spaces levy would benefit all the citizens of Bothell when it passes.
With three pedestrian fatalities during a five-month period, the Kenmore City Council has been forced to face what they have been quietly ignoring since we became a city 16 years ago: our roads are highly dangerous and fail to meet legal state safety standards.
Mayor Baker of the city of Kenmore in pursuit of a 4 percent tax to benefit the city and is encouraging Bastyr University and Daniel Real Estate to redevelop the failing and obsolete 90,000 square foot seminary building into college classrooms and living quarters.
I noticed Diane Meehl's letter concerning Initiative 594 on the Bothell Reporter website.
The ads for I-594 are, very obviously and expected, lopsided. I don't especially mind it as that is part of the democratic process, but it does do a disservice to the voting public who need to know both sides to make an intelligent choice.
Sept. 7-13 is National Diaper Need Awareness Week, do you know about the diaper need nationally… and here at home?
While I certainly can understand the previous Sammamish writer’s passionate pleas for the passage of Initiative 594 from her perspective, she is sadly misinformed or indifferent to what the 18-page initiative actually says.
I wanted to counter the falsely simplistic letter to the editor – “I-594 Will Save Lives in Our State” – that tried to explain a massive 18 page gun-control initiative in 18 seconds.
So many of us feel powerless to affect change in the midst of turmoil at home and across the globe. But there is something we can do to save lives right here in Washington – vote “yes” on Initiative 594 this fall.
I would like to commend the city of Kenmore for sponsoring the recent Kenmore Play Day at Rhododendron Park.
The need for open-space, parks, recreation, trails, etc. has virtually taken a back-seat to over development. Most parks are postage-stamp size in the city of Bothell, with little amenities.
I read an article in your paper last week that was very well written by a Mr. Bill Moritz of Bothell. The title was ‘We will pay and pay and pay for the new Bothell City Hall.’
I’d like to challenge our city leaders and law enforcement to stop allowing people to place chairs along the Independence Day parade route as much as a week in advance.
The June 20 Bothell Reporter contained a lengthy article and letter regarding the Bothell City Council’s decision on June 3 to proceed with building a new city hall. Unfortunately neither piece shed any light on several very troubling aspects of that decision.
