Letters to the Editor

The end of lavender?

  • Today at 2:00AM

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.

Support for SARC

  • Jul 23, 2014 at 12:34PM

I am a citizen of Sequim in support of maintaining SARC. Let’s forget as to what may or may not have happened in the past … now is the time to act. Our community and expressly myself need to have SARC in our lives. As recipient of three prostheses, SARC’s facility, and expressly its pool, is vital to my mobility.
