Post-Initiative-594: More gun restrictions to come | Letter

  • Nov 21, 2014 at 11:20AM

While I voted against Initiative 594, I don’t believe its passage is the end of the world. Policing the provision concerning loaning your gun to another seems problematic. Is there going to be a policeman in every gravel pit and range in the state? What I do see as a downside is that there most likely will be an increase in illegal sales, and there is no doubt in my mind that its passage will have absolutely no effect on crime.

It's time for Congress to use its legitimate powers | Letter

  • Nov 17, 2014 at 5:34PM

American citizens must wonder if Congress will introduce bills to nullify harmful and unconstitutional executive orders.

The minimum wage hurts the economy | Letter

  • Nov 14, 2014 at 1:00PM

I must beg to differ with Steve Hirsh of Bothell who supports the minimum wage (as printed in the Nov. 7 issue of the Reporter). I hate to say it, but belief in the minimum wage is economically illiterate. Sort of like not believing in gravity is scientifically illiterate.

Election signs: Consider our right to ‘freedom from litter’ | Letter

  • Nov 14, 2014 at 1:00PM

Along with the falling leaves of autumn, the fallen yard signs of the 2014 election litter Redmond. Their messages have cluttered our streets since August.

Redmond is in an awkward transition of growth | Letter

  • Nov 7, 2014 at 12:08PM

Driving or walking around Redmond, one gets the feeling our city is in an awkward transition of growth. I remember the days 27 years ago where anytime you walked into a Redmond store or on a sidewalk you would recognize someone — a neighbor, a friend, an acquaintance. Redmond was a small town back then and had that cozy small-town feeling. Oh, have the times changed as Microsoft continues to grow and impact our lifestyle. Thank God for social media where we can stay in touch with those we know, even if it’s virtual.

Question of the Day

Did you give suggestions for the City of Redmond biennial budget?
