Our community needs transit and revenue. But the funding plans in Sound Transit 3 Proposition 1 are not practical and do not merit passage. This issue is non-partisan and not ideological.
We are a team of three high schoolers from Redmond. Over the course of a year, we have developed a climate change strategy game that we believe will have a positive impact on society. We aim to educate youth about the consequences of their actions on the environment and potential alternatives.
Our Curves is going away on Oct. 29. I say “our” because I have been attending the Redmond Curves for 14 years. The trainers and the gym goers are my friends and keep me (and others) encouraged to keep moving. I’m not sure where I will go now.
• I don’t know many people who are excited to cast their vote for president this year. We are one and a half weeks from the general election and yet nary is there a bumper sticker or yard sign declaring a person’s candidate of choice for the Oval Office. I’m not sure I can stomach watching or even listening to one more presidential debate. To all this I say “Bottom’s Up!”

There are a number of misconceptions from a previous letter on homeless encampments that we would like to address.
Why I support the April bond and you should, too. I avoid going out of my house between 7:30-8:05 a.m. and again between 2:15-3 p.m. Wondering why? I live in a neighborhood close enough to a middle school with extreme overcrowding and these are the start and end timings for the school. The situation is so bad that I would rather schedule my life around that time than stay stuck in traffic.
The Lake Washington School District convened a Long Term Facilities Planning Task Force in late 2014. In August 2015, the district published the task force’s report and a separate bond committee recommended the $398 million construction bond measure for the April 26 ballot.
I wish to present my opinion regarding the April Lake Washington School District (LWSD) bond, which would grant the district $398 million to build new schools and expand old ones while maintaining the current tax rates.
• I’m a Lake Washington School District (LWSD) parent, and I am writing to encourage voters to vote “yes” to support the school district bond on April 26.
