Pool vote unwise

  • Nov 24, 2008 at 7:05PM

It is hard to find the logic in the 4-3 decision by the City Council to cut $20,000 from the $100,000 it pays annually to Northwest Center (NWC) to operate Mary Wayte pool. But it is easy to find contradiction.

Thanks for giving

It is time to give thanks for our community of caring.

Pool vote: A letter to the City Council

  • Nov 24, 2008 at 7:05PM

What a shock to read about Monday night’s City Council meeting! I am outraged by the motion made by El Jahncke and the subsequent votes cast by Council members Steve Litzow, Sven Goldmanis, Jahncke and Jim Pearman to reduce support funds for the Mary Wayte Pool. I appreciate the wise words of opposition by Dan Grausz and the wonderful editorial that appeared in the Mercer Island Reporter on Nov. 14, “Pool Vote Unwise.”

“Not too much; less than $100 per person. I’d make my own gifts, but no one would take [them].”

Invisible man

  • Nov 24, 2008 at 7:04PM

The death of a 61-year-old man this week by suicide just before his eviction from his apartment in the Shorewood Heights apartments is a terrible tragedy. It is our policy not to report on suicides, but we felt the circumstances in this case should be made known to the community.

Scientists provide detailed, grim view of our future climate

The report with an unwieldy name, “IPCC’s Fourth Assessment Report,” is something everyone should take the time to read.

The crew that responded to the scene knew all about the structure and its residents. As a result, they called for extra help to ensure that the residents would be safe and the building could be saved. Fire units from Bellevue and Seattle responded to the scene along with extra aid cars and ambulance units. Two Metro buses were called so that the residents who evacuated could be out of the cold.
