Why on Weyerhaeuser? | Letter

As I had to leave the public hearing early, I missed hearing Mayor Jim Ferrell tell the crowd that the Sept. 1 meeting was being held as a courtesy because the Council can take no action on the proposed fish processing facility.

Police care for policy over safety | Letter

On Aug. 1, returning from our daughter’s house about noon, I noticed a rather full, unattended, backpack lying in a parking lot at the intersection of SR161 and South 342nd Street. I could have stopped and examined it myself, but I thought that the police (or the bomb squad) would be better qualified for the job. City Hall is about halfway home, so I made a slight detour there to make a report in person to the police department.

320th problems far bigger | Letter

Unfortunately, the writer of the recently published letter complaining about traffic congestion exiting southbound I-5 onto South 320th Street is too focused on their own particular experience. The congestion problem in that area is far bigger and also includes vehicles coming up from Peasley Canyon and exiting from northbound I-5.
