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.
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.
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.”
