Letters to the Editor

Woodinville needs a center piece

*I'm confused. I had to reread the newspaper's front page notice several times about the city of Woodinville wanting to hear from the public concerning the future of the downtown. Did I miss something?

Vote yes, yes and yes for Northshore schools

*Northshore School District is one of the best school districts in the state.This is, to a large extent, because of the strong support that we, the Northshore community, have given the district.

Practice of prudence is important

*Our district has been fortunate to be provided with over half a billion dollars in levy funds for different programs over the last decade. But sooner or later we must ask the question, "Will there ever be a time when a particular school levy will not be needed?"

Past school remodels helped learning experience

*I urge voters in Northshore School District to approve all three school measures on the Feb. 5 ballot. Each proposition replaces expiring taxes. If approved, they will decrease the school tax rate we are paying today from $5.98 per $1,000 of assessed property value to $5.17.

No land ethics

*I heartily agree with a letter in last week's paper about the trash- littered roads in the Woodinville area. However, this is not just a problem in Woodinville.

Questions keep popping up

*I am writing to you with questions that keep popping up. The first is: Why does it appear that a stop light is being installed at the intersection of 124th and West Snoqualmie Valley Road.
