This letter is in response to Jim Ellis's opinion letter to the editor June 1 regarding the Snoqualmie Tribe's plan for developing a 12-pump gas station on their lands.
The bathroom "guidance" policy for schools does not yet have the force of law behind it, but "tells" schools how the Department of Education intends to enforce it, including a loss of federal funding threat for school lunch programs.
Even though the weather did not cooperate the fun run had over 500 participants thanks to the Harrises and the Wilkinses.
On April 11, King County held a town hall meeting in Fall City. Deputy Assessor Al Dams attended. One item discussed was property tax rates and the county's tax assessment zoning, specifically, why is the Valley zoned the same as Redmond and Bellevue?
Many thanks to the Board of Commissioners of Hospital District #4 (Dariel Norris, Joan Young, David Speikers, Gene Pollard and Emma Herron) for their naming Tom Parker as both the Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Public Hospital District.
St. Clare's Episcopal, Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic, Mount Si Lutheran and the Snoqualmie United Methodist Churches, organizers of the recent Snoqualmie Valley CROP Hunger Walk, wish to thank all those who helped to make this fundraiser such a success.
Fourth of July is fast approaching. Last year, one of the driest summers ever recorded in this area, neighbors set off their own professional-grade firework display for three hours. North Bend is one of the last towns in King County that has not banned the use of fireworks by amateurs on the Fourth of July. Virtually all towns throughout the U.S. have recognized the danger inherent in the unregulated use of fireworks.

Do you really think that property and other taxes are fair to the senior citizens that are living on a fixed income, especially when property taxes alone are over $4,000 a year?
Tired of endless political/donation calls?
I would like to publicly express my disappointment in the Democratic caucus held Saturday at Mount Si High School freshman campus. Because the attendance was too large for the space, it was chaotic and very noisy, making it necessary to yell to be heard.
Here are some facts about teen smoking. Physically, the part of the brain involved in decision making (the pre-frontal cortex) is still under construction in teens. It is not fully developed until age 25 or so.
Like Trump, Representative Jay Rodne never seems to surprise me with his political limbo: How low can he go? Just check out HB6151. This bill had strong bipartisan support until it got to Rodne.
When you look deeper you understand why residents of Mount Si Road are not happy about the DNR's plan to add a 70-space parking lot near the end of their road.
