Letters to the Editor
The solstice recently delivered some wonderful weather, and the Island's kids celebrated their emancipation by pouring out of classrooms into the sunshine that lit up streets and public parks.
Community Events, July 2016
I loved Bill Severson's letter of June 15 urging us to support Initiative 732 to fight climate change and save the planet for our children and grandchildren. And kudos to state Sen. Steve Litzow for endorsing I-732. But I want to tell Mercer Islanders more about why folks across the political spectrum can get behind I-732:
On behalf of the entire Board of Directors of the Mercer Island Farmers Market, I would like to thank the Mercer Island Community Fund for generously funding our 2016 community program, "Meet You at the Market!"
Jerry Cornfield's latest column, "Hateful speech rhetoric ramps up," is poorly researched and misleading. The column discusses Initiative 1515, an initiative that aims to repeal Washington's current non-discrimination protections.
I moved here from Queen Anne over four years ago. The Island atmosphere is great but I am aggravated by one daily annoyance I didn't notice nearly as much in Queen Anne, as there were more sidewalks there. I've never seen so many seemingly intelligent adults walking and riding bikes on the incorrect side of the road as I do here on the Island.
