Every year, the second full week of April is dedicated to the men and women who serve as public safety telecommunicators. The National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week recognizes the invaluable work of telecommunicators, who provide that vital link to public safety services we rely upon daily.
On behalf of Fire Districts 10 and 38, I would like to thank voters for participating in the recent election.
Senator Murray has an imminent opportunity to support not only Washington constituents' wishes but a majority of Americans'.
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. This community has raised concerns that have been largely ignored. The saying "government by the people for the people" is in serious question.
A big community thank you for making Fall City Day 2015 so successful! We didn't have as many families in attendance since school had already dismissed for summer break, but we were still able to donate over $10,500 back to Snoqualmie Valley youth organizations.
Thank you, Snoqualmie, for hosting the valley's winter shelter these past couple of months.
So will the DNR take all the trees and put them in a tree museum and charge the people a dollar and a half to see them and then pave paradise and put up another parking lot?
It's very disappointing that in order to have input in the Best of the Valley contest, we must not only do it online, but we must even set up an individual account complete with password, agreeing to terms of service and a privacy agreement. It's not worth it.
Having lived in the Snoqualmie Valley for the past 16 years, I have seen an increase in road rage recently. When driving, we expect people to follow the law and drive safely. When people don't, other drivers have weird thoughts about their behavior.
I am embarrassed and sad that Donald Trump has gotten as far as he has in the Republican primary.
As a resident that lives right off Mount Si Road, I have to weigh in my disapproval of the DNR's proposed new trailhead and 70-car parking lot for Mt. Teneriffe.
After reading Casondra Brewster’s comment in the latest “Letters” I wanted to jump up and down and say, “Finally, someone is paying attention. Someone understands.”
I want to thank board members of King County Fire Districts 10 and 38 for coming up with a plan to protect emergency service levels for the rural and unincorporated areas where we live.
A single person in the city of Snoqualmie pays roughly $120 per month, which over 12 months is $1,440 per year for their water bills. Someone making minimum wage and working 40 hours a week (with some overtime) makes roughly $15,000 after taxes per year.
State Representative Jay Rodne has done a terrible job of representing the citizens of the 5th Legislative District. He pinned a target on Muslims and then said “arm yourselves.”
