Apartments more worrying than Orca Bay | Letter

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.

Good intention, bad advice in column | Letter

The Aug. 5 Mirror contains a column titled “Why I Do What I Do” by Liz Word, which attempts to address the problem of under-performance by blacks and Hispanics in post-secondary education, but it does so in a peculiar way.

Women’s dress bears some burden of stopping assaults | Letter

I wish I could train myself to stop viewing less clad women as sex objects. But all I can manage is to stop viewing less clad women… sometimes. Among men I know (is it only we Christians?) this topic evokes knowing commiseration

Blink and the city’s grown

I have been out of circulation for the last couple months due to some medical issues. I remember going through on 320th Street and seeing the old school bus parking area cleared out. Construction was just starting on some buildings.

Signs too early, too ugly

With the pending fall acrimonious election season rapidly approaching, is it really necessary for area politicians to start defecating on lawns with their signage?

Diversity story spreads racism

Shame on the Federal Way Mirror! In the name of diversity, you let Gyasi Ross spread his racist ideology. How can you let him say, on page 24 of the June 3 issue, with no reaction on your part, “That white, individualistic, capitalist mindset that values money over everything cannot fix the problems that this world finds itself in”?

Leaders look away as airport runs amok | Letter

You can check the crime that is going on in these communities, as well as the increasing crime in the small community of Des Moines – the next small city on the Port of Seattle and the FAA’s “hit list.” This will continue to move south into Federal Way city limits.

Roegner wrong on methanol plant | Letter

I am a resident of Tacoma and have grave concerns, not unreasonable fears, about the proposed plant.

Methanol plant a dangerous neighbor | Letter

Speaking as a risk management professional and lifelong resident of Pierce County, hearing that the world’s largest anything, which also happens to be highly toxic and flammable, will be imported into our backyard piques keen interest.

Camp Kilworth | Letter

Recently, I became aware of the fact that this Boy Scout Camp, Kilworth, located in Federal Way, was closing. It appears there had been a decision to close this twenty-five acre camp after years of servicing the region’s boys and girl scouts.
