LETTER: Five Stories in Everest

Sent by: Marvin Scott Sent on: December 12, 2017 I have sent many letters along with hundreds of others outlining why your vote and decision is a bad idea for the South Kirkland community.  Hundreds of people have testified.  I, as have others, suggested alternatives that would be a compromise.  And yet you went against […]

LETTER: Houghton Rezone

Sent by: Dan Ryan On: November 26, 2017 The Kirkland City Council is about to approve changes in zoning at the Houghton-Everest Business Center. The effort to prepare for future growth has failed. By not setting viable standards for development, changes in the center are effectively deferred until a future rezoning. But maybe we can […]

LETTER | Kirkland’s top cop blows it

Editor:

Are we to believe that we are safer by not checking for immigration papers at a time with ISIS waiting around the corner to kill people?  What made her make that decision?  Is it because it would add to their workload, was it because they don’t want the responsibility to help insure our safety, was it because our Council directed her response?  

In any case, I believe they are avoiding what should be their responsibility to keep us safer.

LETTER | Unhappy about Dancing Marijuana Sign Holders

Editor:

I am pretty unhappy to see the advertiser for the local pot store next to Costco dancing and swinging a giant marijuana sign on the corner of 85th and 120th. I was told that this is completely legal and is considered Freedom of Speech. I wish that the City of Kirkland would have taken this into consideration when issuing business licenses. I drive by this corner several times a day with my children and am unhappy to see this sign literally waving in our faces…

LETTER | Election Results

Editor: I am very pleased to see my fellow Kirklandites who are readers and contributors to this blog have refrained from pontificating about the election results.  Other social media is filled with posts either gloating or decrying the results depending on their political point of view.  Many of them quite nasty.  We have many spirited […]
