  • Jan 10, 2014 at 12:15PM

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.

Students need tech skills more than cursive | Letters

  • Jan 10, 2014 at 12:18PM

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.

  • Jul 11, 2014 at 1:16PM

Things were slow at the newly opened Carnation Public Food Bank on July 2, but in a good way. In an hour’s time, about eight people stopped in at the Myrtle Avenue building. About half of them were collecting some needed food and clothing items, and the rest were dropping off donations, or just there to chat. And that’s pretty much what Fred Vosk had in mind when he envisioned the re-opening of the food bank. “I want it to be a local food bank,” he said. “I want the community to feel involved… I’m not looking for big truckloads of food coming in from somewhere else.”
