Refocus on real problems

I just read Diana Somerville’s insightful article “Going to pot: Growing our economy, protecting our environment” (Sequim Gazette, March 12, page A-13) and would like to add that almost all the problems cited with growing marijuana are due to society’s foibles.

Thanks to you, Emily!

In the very early 1980s I was a member of the Chamber’s Tourism Committee. Not having lived in Sequim very many years I suggested that we initiate some hanging baskets to brighten the town up.

Also for school bond

As your state representative I have an interest in seeing local school districts succeed and the state provide the needed funding for that success to occur. Part of that success lies in the framework we provide for our children to learn, the actual buildings needed for education.

Pay it forward, voters

A crucial vote for all taxpayers within the Sequim School District will be on the upcoming ballot. The word “crucial” is apropos because it addresses an issue that impacts each and every citizen.

Vote for school bond

One of the most important lessons we as parents can teach young people, including our kids and grandkids, is the civic responsibility to register and vote during elections.

Teach the basics for my vote

As a former teacher and military veteran, “Why my Constitutional issue is important to me” piqued my interest [Sequim Gazette, page B-8, March 5, 2014].

Perspective on school bond

As a member of the Community Facilities Committee for the Sequim School District, I would like to share a few observations.

Governing by ‘divine right’?

Though not a scholar of the state constitution, there is a question I would like to ask. Where, in our state constitution is the power granted to the governor to arbitrarily change the legally enacted laws with which he does not agree? Personally, I cannot believe that the governor has, or had, the authority to abolish the death penalty in the state simply because he doesn’t not agree with it.

Investing in Sequim’s future

What do you think is the best type of investing? Stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real estate? WRONG. The best investment we can make is in our community and particularly our schools. Next month voters in the Sequim School District will be asked to vote for a school bond to fund multiple school construction projects.
