Letters to the Editor

Guest Editorial

*We as a family wanted to bring an upcoming event to the community's attention the week of February 25-March 3 is National Eating Disorders Awareness Week.

'There's no place like school'

*I was a lucky enough parent to be present at Hollywood Hill Elementary at 10:55 a.m. on Wednesday's real duck and cover drill.

Crosswalk is not clearly marked.

*On several occasions I have had the misfortune, and also witnessed others having the same problem, with the crosswalk which is behind the Red Robin leading across to the Target store located in approximately the middle of that block between the two traffic lights.

Residents have come to rely on Medic One

*I was shocked and disappointed to learn that Evergreen Hospital Medical Center is planning to discontinue Medic One service because the administration believes it has cost $3 million allocated by King County to operate the two Medic One units.

Traffic moves better without lights

*A couple of interesting observations about traffic flow in Woodinville. Quite possibly the worst intersection in town is the 4-way stop on the west end of 175th by McCory's.

Let's check our math

* I'm out with three friends and we decide to order a pizza. Three of us put in $3 each and the other friend puts in $10.

Extinction of any species affects all.

*I feel compelled to clarify some of the "facts" in a letter to the editor on Feb 19.

'Road Warrior' drivers (remember that movie?)

*Today I saw yet another driver pass aggressively in a no-passing zone on a rural two-lane road (Woodinville-Duvall Road). I am seeing this more and more these days.
