To my fellow travelers on the roads of Sequim and Greater Clallam County:
For you folks who are complaining about the political cartoonist (Frank Shiers) and his right-leaning messages, especially about Obamacare ...
I read, with alarm, that residents may not support a 12-cent property tax levy to keep SARC running.
Well, I see the Koch brothers-inspired attacks on the working class have reached the grassroots level with the submission of two propositions to the Sequim City Council.
All of Jan Richardson’s comments on SARC are excellent and correct (“Some perspectives on SARC clarified,” Letters to the Editor, Sequim Gazette, Aug. 6, page A-11).
As a co-chair to the Clallam Fire District 3 Centennial celebration held on Aug. 9, I would like to share our appreciation to the community for its support in making this special event a huge success.
(Editorial cartoonist) Frank Shiers is very evident in his (right-wing) bias.
Please replace Shiers as your editorial cartoonist. Anyone with a more varied view would be worth a try.
I want to thank your reporter Matthew Nash for publishing the facts concerning David Halpern’s criminal record.
I heartily agree with the writer who was hoping to see cartoons a la Tim Quinn.
As a long time subscriber to the Sequim Gazette, I greatly appreciate the role the newspaper plays in our community. However, lately, I’ve become increasingly disconcerted by Gazette staff choice of political cartoons.
Really enjoyed the Tour de Lavender ride. My group of four loved the ride around Sequim and the very nice people, many who stopped to allow us to pass or offered directions.
Last month I relocated to Sequim and am looking forward to establishing my business here. I just started reading the Gazette and I was very alarmed to learn that the residents of Sequim may not support a 12-cent property levy to keep SARC running.
A rebuttal to Mr. Howerter’s letter, “Taxpayers should not subsidize SARC” (Letters to the Editor, Sequim Gazette, July 30, page A-10)
In response to Mr. John Jones’ letter of July 30 (“The end of lavender?” Letters to the Editor, Sequim Gazette, page A-10), I have what I consider some salient points.
Sorry to the gentleman who missed the hay wagon (“Letters to the Editor: ‘The end of lavender?’,” Sequim Gazette, July 30, page A-10).
Sgt. Bo Pinnell (U.S. Army) and his wife/high school sweetheart Johanna, above, made a stop in Sequim after spending the better part of three years in Italy. Both are 2010 Sequim High School graduates.
The letter to the editor, “Lavender Weekend disappoints from years past” by Rick McUne of Cashmere, Wash., (“Letters to the Editor,” Sequim Gazette, July 23, page A-11), was right on the money. Having volunteered with the unified Lavender Festival folks for a number of years and then the farmers’ group for a year, I can see and feel the difference between the former Lavender Festival of years ago, and the Sequim Lavender Growers Association and Sequim Lavender Farmers Association events.
The proposed property tax levy (Feb. 10 ballot) is classic example of a special interest group claiming they deserve a subsidy from the population at large. However, a facility used by only a minority of the community should “pay its own way.”
