Vote for Bill Blake | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

With all of the hugely negative political news everyone has been hammered with lately, it almost seems that a lot of people may be pretty apathetic about voting in the upcoming Nov. 5 election. However, I once heard that changing things on the federal level is a pretty hard thing to do while doing the same along local lines can at least sometimes yield changes that benefit the community.

Klein for Snohomish County Council | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Not long ago, Americans were told that Detroit, one of America’s largest cities, filed for Bankruptcy. But, wait, since then, Washington D.C., Camden, N.J., Cincinnati, Ohio, San Diego, San Jose, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Calif. and Baltimore, Md., are all facing similar fates. Can it happen in Snohomish County? Most would say, “No way!” But, I would caution you that the 1,000,000 people who once lived in Detroit and fled probably said the same thing. So, what does this have to do with a County Council race in Snohomish County? It has everything to do with it.

Look at expanding mental health services | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Boom. Kaboom. Bang. Shots ring out in our schools, shopping malls, streets, and we believe we are powerless to stop it. Responding to the chaos, police around the U.S. end up shooting mentally ill individuals because the police don’t know of any other way to interact with them — to calm the storm of symptoms. Enraged and scared, citizens yell for gun control, arming children, armed guards in schools, return to religion — anything to save a child, anything to stop the madness.
