Once upon a time there was a young fella that had a big dream. His dream was to escape the world of difficulty into which he had been born. He grew up with his grandparents supporting his dream day by day.
Nothing more sophisticated than the truth! There are always divergences of opinions; however, to turn the simple act of informing the public you work for that they will have to pay more for services received into a major project is ludicrous!
It’s frustrating to hear that there’s a call to raise $1,000,000 to save a manmade structure like the grain elevator. Sure, it’s a piece of history, but $1,000,000. Really?
In writing about the spirit of solidarity he found in Finland, John Burbank reminds us that we are all in the same boat (“Finland, a fine role model,” Sequim Gazette, May 21, page A-16).
Fifty-five percent of greater Sequim’s population is over 60 and only 3 percent of those choose to implement any type of exercise in their daily life. (U.S. Census 2010). Who cares if you die prematurely? I don’t!
Broom Busters II, a River Center Rally team, wishes to thank all the volunteers who joined us pulling the invasive Scotch broom along the Olympic Discovery Trail.
Last week’s letters in the Sequim Gazette prompted me to wonder why Warmies promote their voodoo science even though there’s been zero proof of manmade warming. Zero — None — Nada! I think I’ve found two reasons thereto.
Where is the government of which we were so proud? And where the country that stood out high above the crowd?

The Sequim Gazette’s article on wastewater treatment for the Carlsborg UGA adequately covers the topic (“Carlsborg wastewater: Sequim bound?”, May 21, page A-1).
Bob Lynette’s letter in last week’s Sequim Gazette (“Time to curb fossil fuels,” page A-16) perpetuates liberal falsehoods.
This letter is written in rebuttal of “Time to curb fossil fuels” (Sequim Gazette, “Letter to the editor,” page A-16, May 22):
Don Brunell’s guest opinion in the May 14 Sequim Gazette (“‘The Princess and the Pea’,” page A-10) reminds us that fossil fuels provide much of our sustenance and creature comforts.
Do you know that the U.S. taxpayers are spending $2.7 billion for earmarks this fiscal year?
This letter is in reference to: "School bond: More work to be done" and "School bond advocates eye next step" (Sequim Gazette, April 30): My "Random House Dictionary of the English Language" defines the word "arrogance" thusly: "Offensive display of superiority or self importance; overbearing pride."
I believe the Sequim City Council members should be paid for their attendance time, but a 60 percent increase is obscene.
One of the greatest obstacles facing medical cannabis dispensaries is the image — firmly planted in the minds of some people – of what a medical cannabis dispensary is, what cannabis patient looks like and who they are.
Everyone complains that there is too much money in our politics and elections these days … on both sides. If you would like to see this changed, there IS something you can do about it right now … Sign the petition to get Initiative 1329 on next November's ballot.
The dangerous staging of a toddler's abduction at Carrie Blake Park deserves to be revisited for prosecution. The perpetrators, the Holden family, should be held accountable in a court.
What is a biker? It really is just about anyone. The hardcore down hiller to the old lady on a three-wheel heading for the store.
