Snoqualmie Valley Record Letters to the Editor | Aug. 20

Dear Mayor Hearing, city council members, staff and city officials: Every day that I drive through our new traffic circle at North Bend Way and Cedar Falls, I swear to myself, “I am going to write these folks a letter!” Well, here it is.

Snoqualmie Valley Record Letters to the Editor | July 30

When I received my Valley Record on July 23, I was not surprised to see an article about Kathryn Lerner’s family’s decision in the paper. I had been asked to make a comment but was unable to comment by press time. I was surprised by the increased emphasis of the subject by the paper with the additional editorial and the “people on the street” feature.

Snoqualmie Valley teachers’ work day plenty long

I have taught in this district for eight years and have lived in the Valley for over 15 years. I appreciate what you were trying to say in your editorial (July 9), but was disappointed in your comment saying “the work day is typically shorter.” I don’t know of any teacher that puts in a shorter day than any other professional. The actual time in the building may be less than another type of job, but I am pretty sure those other professionals aren’t lugging home papers to correct, lessons to plan and phone numbers of parents to call from their home at night.

Change’s real reasons

In John Carlson’s Op-Ed, “Barack Obama’s often-shifting policies of change” [Valley Record, July 9], a number of position changes are cited as evidence of inconsistency and inability to stay the course. Of course, unmentioned are the detailed explanations Obama has provided for each of these moves.

‘Thumbs up’ to Snoqualmie campground sweeps | Letters to the Editor

On your article in the July 2 Valley Record, “Camp Sites Get Clean Sweep,” I just wanted to give a big thumbs up to the officers patrolling the Middle Fork and other problem “hot spots” along the I-90 corridor.

Teen health center would rob parents’ rights | Snoqualmie Letters to the Editor

As a Valley parent with four children, two attending public school, I am opposed to placing a Teen Health Center (THC) in our schools.

Fall City park Letters to the editor

A great deal of work has gone into getting a Fall City Metropolitan Park District initiative on the ballot. While this was the first, and key step in bringing a local park district into reality, the fundamental task now at hand is the passage of the ballot initiative.

There was a time when going to the emergency room at the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital was like stepping into a third world country.

Letters to the editor

Now that you have decided to go ahead with the plans to build a new hospital without voter approval, we hope you will pay off the outstanding three bonds of $25 million dollars that you extended to 2022. Commission Speikers stated [in the June 5 meeting] that the outstanding bonds would all be paid, so we would start with a clean slate on the new loan of $70-plus million dollars (actually, the exact cost to build the new hospital is unknown).

A recommendation has come to the Snoqualmie City Council to adopt a tagline to be added to the city’s new logo. This would be used selectively on marketing materials as the city seeks new businesses, residents, and visitors to our evolving city.

Day of Silence

As a senior at Mount Si, I am appalled by the behavior of our parents and adults in our community in response to the Day of Silence this year. In recent e-mailings from both the Coalition to Defend Education and supporters of the GSA, I have noticed a trend of blatant hypocrisy that does not become our Valley.
