A memorial day tribute

 Today, there are those who never wore the uniform of our country, but they, too, continue the fight to preserve the values we all cherish. Some of them will probably lead the effort to decorate graves and handle the myriad details of memorial services. Let's remember to say "thanks" to them, too.

Thanks to the Maehrens

 Susan, stand up and take your share of the credit with Dave.

Some services are now missing in Woodinville

 I have noticed for about three years, if not more, that there has been no weed abatement provided to the streets in our community. Under King County jurisdiction, they were very prompt about performing this service, and it was provided community-wide, not just on the main thoroughfares. So, what has happened?

Newly elected Kenmore Council members are excellent

 Even though I did not win the election, (I lost by 45 votes) I wish my opponent the best, as well as the other elected council members, as they establish the new city of Kenmore.

Sports teams are suffering

 This freshman athlete is disappointed in her school and school district for viewing the incompletion of certain school sports facilities with indifference.

Lack of sports facility is causing problems

 The lack of these facilities is also becoming a problem that is resulting in injuries for many student athletes. Without a suitable area to practice in, the students are running and training on a variety of surfaces. Exercising on concrete, for example, is very hard on the legs.

Let the county know you don't understand

 The notice mailed by King County to rural landowners about the "voluntary incentive program" for transfer of development rights (TDR) lies when it says people with RA-2.5 zoning can currently develop at only one house per five acres.
