Letters to the Editor

Guest Editorial: Breaking through: When school gets tough

*When adolescents groan that they "just don't get it," meaning their schoolwork, what's a parent to do?

The Thanksgiving Day Fairy

*If there ever were an election for a Thanksgiving Day Fairy, my mother would win by a landslide. Every year my mother prepares a succulent Thanksgiving dinner (watch out, Martha Stewart), cleans the house for holiday guests, works full-time and unselfishly bakes pumpkin pies for the homeless. Sound familiar?

Questions about Brightwater

*I am head of the Save Little Bear Creek Coalition which has been organizing on the Brightwater siting problem in Woodinville. I have written before, and believe me, I will write again.

Should public dollars go back-to-naturing the Sammamish River, or recreation?

*The Woodinville Weekly's notice about the meeting on Sammamish River restoration led to an interesting evening at City Hall where comments were not one-sided.

Holiday gift needs

*The Northshore Adult Day Center is currently accepting donations of holiday gifts for the elderly. If your church community is planning an event to sponsor a nonprofit organization, please consider the Northshore Adult Day Center for your holiday giving event.

Take the time to learn about AIDS

*Saturday, Dec. 1, is not only a day for celebration ("Christmas In Carnation"), it is also World AIDS Day. At 2 p.m. that day, in the midst of our Christmas Bazaar, the bell at Tolt Congregational United Church of Christ will ring 21 times to mark the 21 years of the AIDS pandemic.
