The new skate bowl at the Burton Adventure Recreation Center, overseen by the Vashon Park District, certainly will provide lots of fun and exercise for many kids (“Bowl of fun,” Jan. 21). The front-page picture in The Beachcomber of a 24-year-old boarder showed him without a helmet, while young, 8-year-old Evan Kruse watched wearing his helmet. Kids must follow 8-year-old Evan and wear protective gear when skateboarding. I hope the park district will have rules for the use of helmets and other protective gear when using the new skate park.
Community Events, January 2015
I want to add to the recent discussion of pedestrian safety: I am appalled by the large percentage of pedestrians who walk the highway and other roads facing the same way as traffic.
I’ve been writing and researching about the loss of our rights and freedoms for many years now. What I’ve discovered now is something some might even consider more ominous and immediate.
Appreciation goes to the black tail deer who have given their lives (“Vashon visitors appreciate island hospitality,” Jan. 7). Not for sport, one would hope, but from a quick kill, for food, not to waste, but to give thanks.
John Hasty’s letter of appreciation of our island’s hospitality during hunting season was most gracious (“Vashon visitors appreciate island hospitality,” Jan. 7). It was good to see that he, with his family, was able to enjoy our woods and wildlife, both live and dead.
