When Kathy Lambert packs her bags for a trip to Kenya later this month, she’s not likely to forget a toothbrush—or makeup. These items have earned prominent places in the District 3 King County Council representative’s memory both from her previous trip to Kenya, three years ago. The toothbrushes, possibly hundreds of them, are destined for women and children suffering from AIDS and living in the slums of Nairobi. When Lambert met some of them on a mission trip with WorldComp Kenya in 2011, she was saddened by how bad their teeth were.

Regarding the letter to the editor published in the December 4, 2013, issue of the Valley Record by Mr. Joe Monahan of Fall City, I must respectfully disagree. As a parent of a first grader I find it frustrating to discover that cursive is still being taught at all. I can’t think of any formal instruction that could better waste the time and effort of students and teachers. Any and all instruction time currently allotted toward cursive writing would be much better spent teaching keyboarding skills.
