As a Boy Scout from Troop 425, our troop tends to use the trails on Mount Si and Little Si because they are the closest trails to where we live.
We sit here under the warmth of a tree that is supposed to mean something, but some people are striving under other trees just to stay warm and dry. Maybe they lost their home or jobs — whatever the circumstance, the reality is that the homeless are here in our community, without a place to live and thrive.
I just wanted to drop you a note about your recent article on the local homeless folks.

Did you notice Congressman Dave Reichert’s vote against Democrats’ health insurance legislation to provide affordable health care for all Americans?
King County has failed to manage the gravel build-up for several years now, and this past winter, the built-up gravel at the mouth of the Raging River created a dam. That caused the river to overflow, and (cause) the destruction it did. The damage is still visible today, with evidence in place for all to see.
You’ve taught us strength, grit, the importance of family and unconditional love.
Sometimes it takes the tragedies around us to appreciate the men and women who protect and serve our community.
Well, my friends, I am here to tell you, “I am the one!” That’s right, I am the one responsible for the escalating cost of health care.
Thank you to King Councilwoman Kathy Lambert and King County Parks Director Kevin Brown for attending the Fall City Park District meeting, held Tuesday, Oct. 20.
During the past ten years, I have had an opportunity to work with both Terry Sorenson and Councilmember Maria Henriksen. While I respect Terry’s genuine passion and concern for the city, Maria offers Snoqualmie voters the best choice for council position 5.
