Letters to the Editor

City appreciates input; concerns will be addressed

* We would like to respond to the letter written in the Dec. 17 issue of The Valley View concerning the holiday tree lighting ceremony in Duvall. A Duvall family had an unhappy experience with the planned events of the evening of Dec. 8. The letter will be taken as a learning experience for the city.

Festival featured fun and community involvement

*Woodinville's Light Festival this year was a remarkable display of community involvement and fun. Over 700 people attended the tree lighting ceremony and other activities that took place at the new city hall building and Brittany Park Retirement Community.

Holiday tree lighting was a bright, happy event

*The city of Duvall and the Duvall Chamber of Commerce wish to express their sincere gratitude for the wonderful community spirit and contributions of many people who helped create the holiday tree lighting event on Saturday, Dec. 8.

Perspective is everything

*We have never written to a newspaper, but after reading the article in the December 17th issue "Tree Festival was disappointing for family," we wanted to share our experience.

Residents of Bothell, are you paying attention?

*Bothell wants to change the height of building codes to blanket areas of 65 feet and 150 feet. Is this what you want for Bothell?

Woodinville Skate Park

*My family is excited about the addition of a skatepark to Woodinville. In fact, one of my sons has attended meetings that the city has put on. For me to take time to write this means I feel really strongly about the issue I am about to raise with you.

Snoqualmie Valley Soccer needs your help

*The Snoqualmie Valley Youth Soccer Association (SnVYSA) will be holding its Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Jan. 14 at Fall City Elementary School at 6 p.m. This is a very important meeting as one of the decisions to be made is the future of soccer in Snoqualmie Valley.

Americans will weather this storm

*As we start another year of this uncertain new millennium, it's easy to feel worried, scared and pessimistic. But instead I feel a great sense of hope. Why? Because I know and trust the spirit of ordinary Americans.
