Letters to the Editor

*Thanks to the support of concerned voters in the Riverview School District, the Maintenance & Operations and Transportation Levies both passed, exceeding the 60 percent Super Majority requirement.

It's time to get involved - sign up for the Avon Three Day

*Last year just about this time I saw my first ad about the three day, 60-mile walk from Enumclaw to Seattle to help earn money for breast cancer research and early detection.
