The Kent City Council continues to surprise me with their incompetence.
In response to the letter to the Editor published on July 8 and written by Aaron Tam:
On Aug. 19, the Reporter published a letter from P. Larson criticizing Congressman Dave Reichert over Zika funding. Unfortunately for P. the facts do not back up that claim.
Aegis of Kent welcomed members of the Kent fire and police departments to our assisted living community for a thank you barbecue last Sunday.
It has been a long and frustrating summer of traffic gridlock, noise, dust and detours for those of us who live on, off or near James Street hill.
We live in a selfish world. But I also acknowledge up front the very many who are not.
I attended July's meeting of the Parks commission as a guest. I heard information on:
On your ballot you will find one of the most important races that you can possibly vote in. It isn't for Governor and it isn't for president.
Couldn't have been prouder the other night to be a resident of Kent. The Police Community Forum (July 19) was amazing. There was a very significant turnout.
Recent articles in the Kent Reporter on marijuana stores, medical and recreational, are thankfully illuminating the malfeasance of the majority of City Council members.
It shouldn't surprise us that our Kent City Council has proven once more their expertise at wasting time and money. Our time, and our money.
I want to thank Kent Mayor Suzette Cooke, for considering a veto on a measure passed by the City Council to ban medical marijuana cooperatives.
How much time and money did it take for the city financial task force to come to the same conclusion the voters did awhile back?
I get Tim Eyman. I get Ted Schwarz. I don't get the King County bond retired in 2015 for the Kingdome's new roof that went poof. I don't get $6 billion missing off the State Department books under Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton.
With summer comes nice, sunny weather. However, with the impacts of climate change it also means hotter temperatures, drier conditions, more frequent and severe wildfires (the 2015 wildfire season was the largest in Washington state history), possible heat strokes, water shortages and more negative impacts.
Our government grew 30 percent in the last 16 years, faster than the general population. That takes my breath away. What a trajectory.
As a senior student at Kentlake High School, I am not opposed to standardized testing as long as it serves a purpose.
How can they keep building senior housing apartments and still only give us Safeway and K-Mart to shop at?
The city of Kent's new surplus ordinance prepared for City Council approval on May 17 looks nothing like the tired and proven city of Renton's 2004 surplus policy and procedure, a comparison City Attorney Tom Brubaker said was the best example for the operations committee to reference as the city tries to recover from the $800,000 Pine Tree Park debacle.
I was surprised and pleased to see that I had been voted a finalist for the Best of Kent volunteer category.
