Be safe and smart this Fourth of July | Opinion

  • Jul 2, 2014 at 3:05PM

The Fourth of July is a time for parades, barbecues—and loud bangs. Fireworks are a time-honored American tradition on the Fourth, but one accompanying tradition that I tire of is when people don’t follow the rules, and wind up bothering their neighbors, making a big mess, and hurting themselves or others. There were 45 fireworks related fires and 54 injuries reported in King County in 2013—down from 70 fires and 51 injuries in 2012.

A family deals with autism | Letters

  • Jul 1, 2014 at 4:04PM

I woke up this morning with a very heavy heart. Life with our kind of autism is absolutely mentally, physically and spiritually exhausting. Life with our kind of autism isn’t featured in the media because it’s not uplifting or involving early detection (which are both so important). What is our kind of autism? It involves aggressive behaviors that often come out of nowhere. Something misfires in my son Trevor’s brain and he goes into a rage. He doesn’t want to. This rage involves attacks on others but also on himself and ends with hysterical crying. These are not premeditated. Autism as a whole generally robs the person of social skills and awareness.
