As you wait patiently for your morning coffee at your local cafe, consider this.
Sixty years ago, two soldiers came home from war. We tell part of their stories in this issue.The men were two of the many thousands who were shipped off to war as young men, many still teenagers. They put their young lives on hold, leaving home and family to go into a great unknown — their destiny in the hands of others.

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

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.
