Letters to the Editor

Family has a wonderful friend

*I just read the letter from Jennifer Elden concerning her friends, the Smiths of Woodinville.  Blair Smith, a father of two young boys is fighting a costly battle with cancer.   

To parents who like to be pals:

*Having a son in high school, I know how difficult it is to keep the lines of communication open, how tough the challenge is to indicate your love while at the same time, parent them toward becoming fine young men and women.   

Owners who keep a horse on small acreage must make a commitment

*I agree in part to the recent letter on the impact of the bus barn project. It certainly would have some of the mentioned impacts on LBC (Little Bear Creek).   

It's time to look at Northshore's writing system

*I read with interest last week's letter from "Anonymous" regarding penmanship standards.   

Writer will remain on her soapbox

*No, I will not get off my soapbox, as the writer puts it, and I hope others will not when it comes to the treatment of animals.   

Horses do have need for food, shelter, safety

*I agree wholeheartedly with the original writer's fact-based opinion that there are a growing number of horses living in questionable conditions.   

Support by community was appreciated

*One of the advantages of a small town is how the whole community rallies about its school and senior center.   

Workers should be able to make their own decision about union membership

*Right now in Washington state workers are being denied a basic right of choice.
