We have the Sequim City Council to thank for their unanimous vote to reject the Freedom Foundation’s Prop. 1 and Prop. 2, measures aimed at stripping our city’s employees of union protection.
Saturday night (Sept. 20) my husband and I attended a musical production for our Sequim community in the high school auditorium. It was an outstanding production and a very enjoyable evening out.
“Bullies,” “minions of greed,” “pick your pocket,” the Left uses the language of oppression to demonize their freedom-loving opponents and hide an abuse of power by the Sequim City Council.
I have seen all those signs out there for candidates. Just because some have the money to spend on lots of them, it doesn’t mean they are most qualified. Before you vote, take the time to get to know the candidate.
I just read “Strangers photographing kids: creepy.” (Letters to the Editor, Sequim Gazette, Sept. 17). The letter stated problems in public areas such as playfields, parks and also a store.
Principal reasons the United States public education math ranking is 27th among other industrial nations: Public schools have low academic standards for grade level achievements compared with other nations, as exemplified when foreign students relocate to the United States they perform two or three grade levels higher than American students.
Many high schools across America like Sequim High School are very good about letting the public use their courts after school, on weekends, holidays and vacations. This is all good and well when schools have funding to maintain courts and there are public courts in the area.
Unlike Tim Wheeler in last week’s Gazette (Letters to the Editor, “A prop point clarified,” page A-9), I know Propositions 1 and 2 are not “anti-union” but pro-taxpayer and pro-employee.
I’m writing in response to the parent whose letter was published Sept. 17 (Sequim Gazette, “Strangers photographing kids: creepy,” Letters to the Editor).
I can’t believe that I have to spell this out, but due to several recent encounters, I guess I do.
I am one of the elderly ladies who uses the SARC facilities regularly. Eighteen months ago I fell and badly injured a hip.
In an otherwise informative article on the vote by the Sequim City Council to reject Proposition 1 and Proposition 2, anti-union measures, I was misquoted.
Thank you for publicizing “The Guys’ 9/11 tribute” in your Sept. 10 Gazette. This better-than-Broadway performance was a patriotic tearjerker that I otherwise would have missed.
(City manager Steve) Burkett et al are at it again … additional bonds to pay the cost for civic center.
Chapter 28A.640 and 642 RCW is the new discrimination law that is being forced on us, our schools and our children by Washington state. It sounds good, but as I went to the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) website, I saw that their way of accomplishing zero discrimination was to do away with bias.
The pro-union, anti-Propositions 1 and 2 testimony at Monday night’s (Aug. 25) Sequim City Council meeting provides a clear and inescapable reason of why the city council should immediately adopt both propositions.
The Clallam County Director of Community Development (DCD) oversees building permits and code enforcement. The DCD “manages all long-range and current planning activities” and “administers zoning, land division, shorelines, growth management and related programs.” This is a big deal.
I would like to express my gratitude to everyone who helped to make the Grange ice cream socials a success this summer.
We’d like to send a big “thank you” out to the folks in Sequim who helped us in our time of need.
When I read that Sequim was recently rated as the top spot in America to live, I became curious. What do people value? Not surprisingly, I discovered that crime rates are always a concern.
