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.
If you were at Monday’s Sequim City Council meeting and public hearing (Aug. 11), this is the conclusion you walked away with.
This time of the year there is an especially large number of bicyclists using our roads.
Regarding helicopter flights over Olympic National Park (where biologists are conducting an annual elk census in Olympic National Park):
The greater Sequim area is losing a real asset with the resignation of Paul Haines as Director of Public Works.
