I wanted to speak a few words on behalf of Jeffrey Zheutlin, who has had the unfortunate experience of having intimate details of his personal life paraded through the newspaper (“Former VYFS therapist penalized for misconduct,” July 8). First of all, this is obviously a difficult and hurtful situation for his entire family, and I wish all sides privacy and healing in dealing with the consequences of his actions.

I am deeply disappointed that three fellow park district commissioners voted on July 7 to waive the rules and proceeded to vote to spend $240,000 more than was budgeted for the next phase of the VES Fields construction, thereby preventing Commissioner Doug Ostrom and over 11,000 islanders from participating in the most important financial discussion of 2015.

What is meant by “strengthening island health care?” From my general understanding, it means more Medicare and Medicaid providers and more services. When I grew up on Vashon, we had approximately 10,000 residents and two health care facilities. No imaging, no urgent care. We are surrounded by water, but also by two cities with excellent medical care very close by. I tried to find rural towns in Washington that currently have more health care options than we do, but was unable to do so.

When I leave my apartment and drive west on Bank Road, knowing that I’m heading for Vashon Cemetery, something begins to happen deep inside — a sense of peace and of beauty. I drive on; the feeling intensifies.

Reading the news from the past weeks, I have been struck by the relevance of what Senator Bernie Sanders is saying. Here’s a fellow who actually says what he means and means what he says. And when I’ve spoken with others about his message, folks have been enthusiastic for many of the same reasons I am.

As we say in the recycling business, “One person’s trash is another’s gold.” Vashon farmers and gardeners can mine a lot of gold from the nuggets left behind by our neighbors’ horses, goats, llamas and other ruminants.

In the booming metropolis that is the Puget Sound region, Vashon stands out. On an island reachable only by ferry, many of the our forests and beaches have not been developed like they have on the mainland. These ecologically rich places provide important natural habitat that helps sustain the region’s ecosystem. It’s encouraging that our lawmakers, at both the state and county levels believe these Vashon places are worth investing in.
