On Tuesday, October 17th, was the Black Diamond Maple Valley Chamber of Commerce Candidates Forum, where the Black Diamond candidates for Mayor and two City Council positions had the opportunity to talk with the citizens of Black Diamond, and to answer questions put to them by these citizens.
The last couple of weekends the St. Barbara Knights of Columbus have been involved with our annual Tootsie Roll Program.
Judy Baxley has been part of our local civics for years, and thank goodness because citizen involvement is critical to monitoring big developers.
In an election with significant consequences that will largely shape the future of our community, Enumclaw voters have a clear choice for mayor.
The newspaper’s three-part debate for the position of Black Diamond mayor has been eye opening.
I’ve heard conflicting opinions about Black Diamond City Council meetings. Lots of them. So I’ve checked out some of them myself. I called the best authorities and I read the law.
Our family enthusiastically supports Jan Molinaro as Enumclaw’s next mayor. His operations and fiscal management along with his leadership experience is superlative and would be greatly valued as a visionary leader of our community.
I have known the late Vern Anderson and his wife, Eleanor, since we were in high school and would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to them.
White Privilege. Where was it when my single mother trying to feed her four children got the windows of her car shot out as she crossed picket lines to work the night shift grading lumber in a sawmill full of men?
I am compelled to respond to George Terhaar’s recent letter to the editor “Character, not skin color, leads to success” (Sept. 6, 2017).
In response to “Character, Not Skin Color” (Sept. 6) I, too, am a white male of middle age, and very grateful to have been born in the USA.
I find the statement and the people uttering “white privilege” tiresome.
As a former Planning Commissioner for Black Diamond I believe in following the rules. But unfortunately our current Mayor does not.
I still have not heard a reason why it’s so important to have a recreational marijuana store in Bonney Lake.
The events that transpired during the weekend of Aug. 12-13 in Charlottesville, NC should serve as a wake up call and a call to action for us all.
I read the same information twice in the newspaper so I assumed that just like the internet, it must be true. Twice in print it said East Pierce Fire and Rescue needed $1.3 million more money to hire nine new firefighters.
The subject of recreational marijuana sale is once again at the forefront of discussion, and is going to be on the ballot for citizens of Bonney Lake to choose this fall.
One of the issues with any health care in the U.S. is the fact that many of us want “the best” of care without being willing to personally invest what is required to take care of our own health.
In my opinion Ed Hanrahan will make an excellent Black Diamond City Council member and deserves your vote.
Mayor Reynolds is correct we have a lot to lose if Mount Rainier’s trails, roads, sewage and water systems and historic buildings are not properly maintained.
