We need to protect, preserve our national parks

  • Sep 9, 2016 at 9:00AM

As a state with three national parks of our own here in Washington, many of us are lucky enough to have personal connections with the National Parks Service, whether it be family trips to the Cascades or hikes up Mount Rainier.

Riding Sound Transit in an urn

  • Sep 23, 2016 at 10:00AM

Based on our current property taxes, car tabs and the amount of stuff we buy, Sound Transit 3 will cost us $2,000 a year for many years, and I will never use it based on our transportation needs, the location of our house, retirement, etc.

Blotter brings needed levity

I absolutely love the humor in the police blotter. I open the paper to read that, then get interested in the other articles. While it's true that crime is no laughing matter, there are plenty of places for emphasis on prevention and plenty of negative news in the world.

Nothing amusing about blotter

Thank you, Christyl Kennedy, for putting it to the blotters section. As a citizen of this town I don't think it's cute or funny about the crime around here. It's not cute or funny to have your homes broken into, cars smashed by drunken drivers down these dark streets, to be followed on walks by strange men living in Les Gove Park, neighbors stabbing each other, and all the horrible things we endure around these neighborhoods.

Making a difference

It's amazing what you can learn when you're dressed as a recycling cart. As an intern in Waste Management's Recycle Corps this summer, I represented the company as "Chuck the Cart" at several Auburn National Night Out events. One of our drivers, another intern, and I went neighborhood by neighborhood meeting people and talking about the importance of recycling.

Question of the Day
