Puget Sound Energy’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant is a speculative investment that has nothing to do with delivering power and natural gas to Puget… Continue reading
I voted by mail this week, so I’m done.
My favorite Clinton supporter makes our bar table a caucus of two, and we’re deadlocked. Saturday’s Democratic Caucus offered the hope of changing his mind.
The recent Beachcomber article about Vashon Allied Arts’ curator Janice Malman’s heartfelt, impromptu words at the final gallery show in the “old” Blue Heron struck me as a partial benediction for a space that holds as many memories as the intricate time lines of an ancient, venerable tree (“Curator marks transition from old to new,” March 23).
Who are the superdelegates in the Democratic party? Party elites and significant politicians of past and present, as well as lobbyists. What?
Democratic caucuses or the presidential primary, what is important? The presidential delegate selection method in Washington state depends on which political party you want to support.
I’m going to vote for the man who’s name begins with a “T.”
I’m sure there are some things that gun enthusiasts and I could agree on: our mutual respect for the Constitution, for example.
I have never owned a gun, nor will I ever. People I know killed by guns were shot by friends, neighbors or relatives.
If $1 million and eight teachers were to be pulled from the Vashon School District, without due notice to the public — there would be an outcry of rage.
Bernie Sanders is the clear choice for moving this country forward.
I can’t see that it matters much who is elected president in November.
I held my nose and voted for the bond because our kids need a new gym.
I was surprised by John Sage’s letter in last week’s Beachcomber (“Prop. 1 vote represents community disconnect,” Feb. 17).
I attended the “Heart of Vashon: Telling our Stories” performance at the Blue Heron in January.
I am not a rich newcomer, so John Sage’s letter spitting at such people for making the school bond fail, is apparently not aimed at me (“Prop. 1 vote represents community disconnect,” Feb. 17).
The school bond measure did not fail because it fell short of the 60 percent majority required by law.
I’m so mad about the VISD Prop. 1 bond vote I could spit. I’ve lived on this island for 36 years. I raised my kid here from birth. Vashon Island was a real community. Once.
The school bond that just failed included $1.2 million for necessary repairs — a new roof, replacing a failing HVAC system, replacing windows that fall out of their frames and more.
Families, neighbors and voters on a tiny island, in a tiny school district volunteer to help and ask each other for help all the time.
