Why is it important to have purpose in early childhood development? This was the question I asked myself.
Last summer freeze-proof fountains were installed at the new lacrosse and soccer fields in Big Finn Park. This was a great and well worth the extra cost.
Thumbs up to the Kirkland City Council for supporting climate change initiatives. Thumbs down to the Kirkland Reporter for the curious addition of an out of context paragraph referencing a recent study by Johnstone and Mantua published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS 2014 111(40) 14360-14365).
I recently read the letter by Mr. Smith in the Nov. 7 issue of the Reporter. My response was “really?”
Path America and Dargey Development submitted their design options for review nearly a month ago. Citizens were feverishly preparing to give the Design Review Board extensive feedback on each of the Potala Village proposals. So why the sudden delay by the developer and why is there no reschedule date?
Mr. Smith should take a step back and accept the fact: Guns don't kill people; people do. His overzealous reference to "outright warfare hardware" and suggestion that such free speech (advertising a legal product) should be restricted - even 'voluntarily prohibited' - by the Reporter, are downright Orwellian.
Sibling House is a children’s charity that started in Kirkland 13 years ago.
Most of us could not survive on $9.47 an hour. That's next year's state minimum wage. It may be the highest in the country, but it's still not enough for workers to support themselves, afford the basics and contribute to the economy.
I must beg to differ with Steve Hirsh of Bothell who supports the minimum wage [as printed in the Nov. 7 issue of the Reporter]. I hate to say it, but belief in the minimum wage is economically illiterate. Sort of like not believing in gravity is scientifically illiterate.
We've always enjoyed reading the local news in the Kirkland Reporter. Yet, I have been increasingly disturbed by the distribution of outright warfare hardware (crossbows, tactical rifles and revolvers) advertised in Cabela's - an insert to your newspaper. I'm particularly disturbed by the timing of this week's distribution.

As a Washington State Council on Aging member, I send this letter because November is National Family Caregivers Month. Each year, more of us are caring for a loved one with a chronic condition, disability or simply the frailties of old age.
I am sitting here horrified and angry by the vile and wicked act of the four students who sexually assaulted a special needs student at Juanita High School. Shame on them and on their families.
This Tuesday, voters in the 48th District are fortunate to have the opportunity to elect Rep. Cyrus Habib to the State Senate.
I support Lisa O’Toole for King County District Court Judge. Ms. O’Toole has practiced law for 27 years.
If you’ve had the chance to meet Andy Hill, you know how genuine a person he is. As our state senator, he’s been just as genuine in following through on the promises he made when he first ran four years ago.
The city should build on existing plastic-bag recycling efforts, instead of enacting an intrusive and ineffective bag ban that takes money from our wallets, hurts our local merchants and lowers Kirkland's tax revenue when people shop elsewhere.
I’m supporting Joan McBride for 48th District Legislature and here’s why.
We were surprised by Duane Illg's negative letter in the Oct. 24 Reporter.
Listening to all the rhetoric of the campaign season you would be led to believe every candidate relentlessly works across the political aisle and is the model of bipartisanship. Frankly, I doubt it.
