In anticipation of this exciting groundbreaking event, Federal Way High School is forming a “Legacy Committee.” Like the fall season, this group will identify ways to celebrate the life and times of the 18,000-plus amazing graduates who have roamed the halls of this school since 1938.
We've lived in Federal Way for nine years now, and are disappointed at the lack of choice when we want to eat out. We usually have to go elsewhere.
Please explain how the lane changes on 336th Street SW are going to improve traffic flow and access to the businesses through the Twin Lakes corridor.
Let’s not group them all together as a bunch of kids who care about nothing except themselves and their cellphones.
The alchemy of making a community, city or major metropolitan area serve its residents and business well in the present while striving to be economically attractive for growth is a challenge all cities face.
One thing has become very clear to me since Federal Way changed to an elected mayor system of government. The guy that won chose to let others do his thinking and talking for him. He chose to use other people to deliver his "message," whatever that is.
Last week, The Mirror published an article critiquing our community’s response to the Pinewood Village Apartment shootings. I found it to be unfair.
Not just a “stringer” for The Mirror but the publisher himself, Rudi Alcott, seems to have gotten way off track in the “post tragedy breakdown” he has manufactured in his recent comments in The Mirror.
In response to FWHS graduate Paige Edmiston's essay, "Reinventing the Patriot" and to the certain individual who deemed FWHS unworthy of the levy that would rebuild our school because we, as students, will never amount to anything.
In Matthew Jarvis’ latest column on the proposed performing arts and conference center (PACC), he mixes apples and oranges and comes up with a red herring.
Regarding the performing arts and conference center (PACC), I am wondering whether anyone has done the simple math on the proposal.
You are asking high school kids to come up with ideas. Their only concerns are cellphones, social media, gaming and other tech-driven formats. They do not care about going downtown to a piano bar and enjoying others, listening to good music — and I don’t mean hip-hop rap crap — such as jazz, blues, ballroom dancing.
Kudos to David Green, owner of Hobby Lobby. Why should he have to pay for someone’s choices in regards to their sex life when they can’t take responsibility for their actions?
I got a ticket, explained my case to the judge and had the fine cut in half. I was pleased with it as I told the truth under oath.
As someone who has spent the better part of four decades branding and rebranding products and companies, I read with incredulity the idiocy in the front page article “Rebranding Federal Way: Ask students?”
That is pure and simple and evil abuse of young women, teaching them crap like that.
Politicians be on guard. Mayor Skip Priest and Deputy Mayor Jim Ferrell had shots fired across their respective bows by The Mirror because they did not appear at a local crime scene recently, and thus, did not demonstrate proper leadership.
To owners of large objects I think Terry O’Day is confused (letters, Aug. 13). 1. Normal people don’t own an RV. 2. Apparently when he purchased the RV, he failed to consider all the costs of ownership of an object so large it didn’t fit on his property.
