Letters to the Editor
As a Washington State Council on Aging member, I send this letter because November is National Family Caregivers Month. Each year, more of us are caring for a loved one with a chronic condition, disability or simply the frailties of old age.

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?
