My husband and I recently delivered some wool socks, work gloves and warm shirts to the volunteers in Oso. It was so incredibly bad; whatever pictures you may have seen aren't the real thing. The media calls it a mudslide, but I saw for myself that half a small mountain swallowed that sweet little town.

The more that I read concerning the marijuana issue, the more that I believe that Initiative 502 was and is bad legislation. Marijuana is an addictive drug and is also a gateway drug to more powerful drugs, such as methamphetamine or heroin.
The excitement was obvious when Amazon recently announced they would open a new location in Kent. This will mean hundreds of good-paying jobs coming to our area.
I admire the mayor and certain members of the City Council for their quixotic efforts to eliminate marijuana from the city of Kent.
The reasons for selling are the same reasons for keeping the par 3. The money from the par 3 will soon be gone, then what valuable asset will Kent then sell?
