Why would anyone want one more light added to the commute?

*I've been following the proposed roundabout debate (at State Route 203/ Northeast 124th intersection) with great interest and some dismay.

Roundabout will keep traffic flowing

*In response to the letter in last week's Valley View asking for e-mails expressing opposition to the proposed roundabout at 124th and 203

Fifteen votes made all the difference

*Thank you to the 15 special parents or community members who put the Riverview Maintenance and Operations Levy over the top.

To vote or not

*To validate a special election requires the vote to be at least 40 percent of the total vote in the preceding November general election, and to pass, a measure needs to receive at least 60 percent of that vote.

Once a Marine, always a Marine

*The Seattle-Evergreen Chapter, 1st Marine Division is looking for members throughout various communities to join our ranks.
