Gun initiative goes too far | Letters

  • Oct 30, 2014 at 5:03PM

Please vote no on I-594. This bill is not about closing loopholes in purchases of firearms, but is about gun control, period. For instance, if I give my guns to my son for safekeeping while I am on vacation, we have broken the law. If I want to teach my wife safe gun handling at any place other than a shooting range, we are criminals. If I teach a youth group about gun safety and let them handle a gun, we are all criminals. That is not about closing loopholes.

It’s simple. Every child in the Snoqualmie Valley is worthy of the opportunity to learn in an uncrowded classroom. By voting yes on Initiative 1351, you will be providing our Valley’s children with the kind of education they deserve. Here’s why: Washington ranks 47th out of 50 states in class size. I-1351 moves us to the middle.

Hospital's future: What about SR-18 interchange?

  • Oct 23, 2014 at 12:59PM

I haven’t paid much attention to all the talk about the new Snoqualmie Hospital; and I don’t live in Snoqualmie or the Ridge. But lately I’ve had to drive past the I-90-Highway 18 interchange quite often, and most of the time when I pass it, there’s a long line of cars waiting to exit—in both directions. Once, I even had to be in the afternoon line of cars for 10 minutes, just to turn right onto the Parkway.
