Central Houghton Neighborhood Association had its 22nd annual Hought-Down picnic on Labor Day. As with almost all community events, this celebration would not happen without the many “people behind the scenes”. I would like to take the time to thank them.
I live a block away from the accident that sadly took the life of Kyle Warnik last Tuesday.
It’s understandable why Mr. Pantley and Mr. Davis have their views on why Kirkland needs lower income and greater density development.
If the ARC (Aquatics Recreation Center) is going to be accessed by bike, the traffic consultant should have known Northeast 124th Street does not have any bike lanes in either direction.
“We can never have enough nature. It soothes, it repairs - it is a tonic for the soul,” wrote Henry David Thoreau 160 years ago. Clearly, Thoreau was a man who knew something about the positive benefits of open space.
I write in response to letters that are coming in opposing I-594, the measure that would require background checks on all gun purchases.
Juanita residents would like Kirkland to have an aquatic center, just not at the sites now being actively considered.
I recently received a letter from the city of Kirkland informing me I need to obtain a business license because I keep myself busy in the evenings making stuff.
I noticed Diane Meehl's letter concerning Initiative 594 in the Aug. 29 edition of the Kirkland Reporter.

This temporary victory in the use of this property [Potala Village] will be short-lived, if the owners elect to take the matter to higher courts.
Sept. 7-13 is National Diaper Need Awareness Week, do you know about the diaper need nationally… and here at home?
While I certainly can understand the previous Sammamish writer’s passionate pleas for the passage of Initiative 594 from her perspective, she is sadly misinformed or indifferent to what the 18-page initiative actually says.
I wanted to counter the falsely simplistic letter to the editor on Aug. 29 – “I-594 Will Save Lives in Our State” – that tried to explain a massive 18 page gun-control initiative in 18 seconds.
The 2014 Kirkland Summer Concert Series came to a close a couple of weeks ago, and now that the dust has settled - wow, we are feeling so very grateful.
As I sat in traffic trying to drive up the I-5 north, I bemoaned the lack of funding for our state’s infrastructure. About 67 percent of all of Washington’s roads are in poor or mediocre condition according to infrastructurereportcard.org, and needs an estimated $6.3 billion to remedy all infrastructural weaknesses.
