In defense of city's trees; tortured arguments for strong mayor
FW traffic solutions hit gridlock
I have lived in Federal Way since 1999.
Now that we understand yellow traffic lights, would the person responsible for changing our “once safe” walk lights please come over to the intersection of 312th Street and Pacific Highway South in Federal Way?
This is in response to Walter Backstrom’s April 5 opinion article (“Story of a single dad and education in Federal Way”).
Still angry over primary election
In response to Sara Slater’s sea lettuce opinion (April 19), we were one of the neighbors who complained about the stench of the sea lettuce. Dumas Bay is a shallow, protected bay and we’ve lived here for 21 years (hardly new citizens). The beautiful summer (2006) was one of the worst for the smell. Maybe Sara could sit out on her deck without any smell, but we couldn’t. Perhaps her location is different, upwind/downwind or farther away. How many of our citizens farm and eat the Dumas Bay seaweed anyway? It just rots in the sun.
The community already has voted for David Larson’s replacement on the Federal Way School Board — it’s Ron Walker.
