Having keenly followed transit development in the area for some time, I found Sen. Andy Hill's inability to properly represent his constituents with the ST3 funding measure (SB 5987) to be rather disappointing.
Community Events, March 2015
This is in response to Don Kaufman's letter in the March 20 issue of the Reporter. I am with you 100 percent. I am an employee of a major grocery chain with two locations in the city of Kirkland. Not only is a food borne illness a risk for consumers, it is also a risk for employees, along with other factors.
As I understand it, the Rose Hill Fire Station is made up of three fireman and serves the area from Bridle Trails to Kingsgate (now labeled by the Kirkland City Council as Evergreen Hill). It also happens that it is the only Kirkland Fire station east of 405.
After reading all of the articles on the "one-time use plastic bag," it is apparent that the official of Kirkland, and other cities that voted for the ban, do not realize that almost everything we purchase is contained in plastic; a loaf of bread, prepackaged lettuce, some egg cartons, roses usually are wrapped with plastic, greeting card are made with plastic, nuts, bolts and washers are in plastic boxes, yard care products are in plastic bags, etc. These are also not biodegradable. Also, when we purchase fresh produce we use a plastic bag.
