Ballot-box blues: What’s a voter to do?

Every year, when my ballot appears in my mailbox, I feel a little pang of loss. It reminds me that I don’t get to vote in person any more, don’t get to go into the church basement, and chat with the election volunteers, don’t get to find out if the trick for finding my name in the voter list — the second one after all the Andersons — still works, don’t get to watch as the ballot box whooshes my marked ballot back and down into the “vault” in the bottom.

Mount Si High School committee looks at adding credits to improve graduation rates

In two years, Washington high school students will be required to earn 24 credits before they can graduate. That's two more credits than the classes of 2017 and 2018, today's seniors and juniors, will need. Twenty-four is also the exact number of credits that students at Mount Si School can earn right now, assuming they don't fail any classes.

Taking an election vacation

Last year when every Valley city had council races and most other local government entities did too, emotions were running high and a lot of people spoke without thinking, which was especially unwise in this age of mistakes living on indefinitely, courtesy of social media. I announced then that I would be taking vacation the entire month of October this year, because I knew, with national races on the ballot, that things would only get worse this year.

Rodne, Ritchie field policy questions in Chamber candidate forum

The two candidates for 5th Legislative District Representative, Position 1, agreed on several points when they met at the Snoqualmie Valley Chamber of Commerce's second candidate forum last Wednesday. Both the incumbent Jay Rodne (R) and challenger Jason Ritchie (D) concurred, to varying degrees, that small businesses need state regulation reforms, that school districts need the local control that local levy authority gives them, that the state's Growth Management Act is outdated, and that a state income tax is not a good solution.

‘Country cool’ Carnation eyes changes to code on keeping chickens, other livestock, in city

Carnation is not a sleepy little town any more. The city of about 1,800 people is starting to grow, with 65 homes permitted, or almost through the permitting process, for construction in four subdivisions, plus infill development. That growth, while welcome for its potential revenue to the city, may be a threat to Carnation's "country cool" culture, according to about a dozen people — and two chickens — who spoke at last Tuesday's Carnation City Council meeting.
