Letters | Small-town thinking in North Bend's tattoo vote
Mar 28 2013, 2:52 PM
Much as I enjoy where I live, I’m disappointed at times in the ‘small town’ mentality that I sometimes run into here. It’s doubly sad when that attitude comes at the hands of our town leaders. Here is the case of man who wanted to move to North Bend and bring his established business with him. The problem? His business is tattoos.
No matter how you read the details, the city council’s actions on this issue are troublesome at best. Mr. Herman dealt honestly and openly with the city. His clear intent was to operate within the framework of the law. The city itself verified that his business, as intended, was allowed under current regulations. They knew he was moving forward, expending money and effort to bring his business to North Bend, based on the information he had been provided.

Kindness patrol: Lower Valley students use 'Random Acts' club to inspire others, do good | Photo gallery
Mar 29 2013, 4:52 PM
They start at one end of the balcony overlooking the Cedarcrest High School commons, and work quietly along the wall hanging the colorful “kindness” chain like bunting over the lunch crowd. There’s no announcement, no presentation, but by the time the chain reaches halfway across the commons, heads are turning and students are elbowing each other.
It creates a brief ripple, as students notice the addition but then go back to their lunches. Maybe some of them smile when they see the chain, each link representing an act of kindness someone did in the school that week. Or maybe not. What matters is they saw it, and some may find inspiration in it.
That, essentially, is how the Random Acts of Kindness Club, or RAK which coordinated the making of the chain, operates. Do something good, watch what happens, do another good thing.

Mar 29 2013, 4:35 PM
It may sound corny, says owner Phil Stafford.
But Finaghty’s Irish Pub is a bit like the “Cheers” of the Snoqualmie Valley. The pub, voted “Best Happy Hour” in the 2013 reader poll, is a place where regulars and staff are on a first-name basis.
“Finaghty’s has always been focused on providing a great atmosphere that people of all ages enjoy,” Stafford tells the Record. “We want our guests to always feel comfortable and our staff knows most of them on a first-name basis, including what their favorite food and beverage are.”
Letters | Gun control: What if bad guys wear white hats?
Mar 29 2013, 4:35 PM
I am a gun owner but not a member of the NRA. I have a pistol and a permit to carry but usually don’t, so what category do I fit in? I am not on one side or the other; just looking for a sane way to navigate the discussion.
One argument, made by Wayne LaPierre of the NRA, is that “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” If that statement defines the terms of gun ownership according to the NRA, let’s follow that thought. Clearly, we would want the good guys with guns to vastly outnumber the bad guys with guns, and we wouldn’t want to be letting more bad guys get more guns. So, how do we tell the good guys from the bad guys?
