Great job, Enumclaw City Council and administration, in dealing with the serious mistake the past city council and or administration made not taking care of their business with Enumclaw’s gas company.
The recent town meeting and a subsequent letter to the editor have me wanting to share some thoughts on, among other things, fact and emotion.
The following is my response to Judi Puttman, Christopher Bock, DPM, Sam Cargill, MD, Daniel Clerc, MD, Brian Hiller, PA, Dennis Mauricio, MD, James Merrill, MD, Jeffrey Rose, MD, and Jude Verzosa, MD, for their rebuttal letter in the April 2 Courier-Herald regarding Councilman Darrell Dickson.
In last week’s “In Focus” column, Rich Elfers asks, what if the Indians came back today and asked for “just compensation” having sold the island of Manhattan to the Dutch for $24 worth of beads in 1626.
The letter on March from Mary Ballard, M.D., states that council member (Darrel) Dickson stepped out of his boundaries and that he had no business investigating anything without the permission of the mayor, the city council and the other council members. That is wrong.
Facts for thought... In regard to the (Enumclaw) council meeting March 10, John Damazio didn’t take sides but suggested emotion be left out of the equation and only deal in cold, hard facts. I totally agree with him, so here are some facts.
We are writing in response to recent events regarding the Enumclaw City Council as reported in The Courier-Herald. We are also responding to Mary Ballard’s letter to the editor (March 26).
I am writing in response to the recent events regarding the Enumclaw City Council as reported in The Courier-Herald. Since I was not present at the meeting in question, my assessment of the situation can only be based on the information provided by your newspaper.
We would like to thank all of our wonderful friends and cousins that helped so much during the loss of our dad, father-in-law and grandpa.
The Enumclaw Garden Club would like to thank the community for the wonderful support given to us at our 49th annual Breakfast for the Birds on Feb. 19.
Well, looks as if we will see a lot of Green Cross in and around our town of Enumclaw within a short time. For those who don’t understand or are scratching you head, the “Mary Jane” growers, harvesters and sellers will open shop.
If you have lived in Enumclaw very long you have had the privilege of a misty morning. A thick cloud that saturates and fills the town with a quiet calm that seems timeless.
I’m writing this about your March 5 article (“Tempers flare between mayor and councilman”) and to say thank you to Darrel Dickson for doing a fine job of looking out for us, the citizens of Enumclaw.
This past week the Washington State House of Representatives members were given a 33 percent daily per diem increase. Their $90 per day per diem was increased to $120. The per diem amounts are used for housing and meals. Each member of the House whose home office is 50 miles or more from the capital receives the per diem. Both representatives from the 31st District qualify.
AMBER-BROOKE – sounds like a microbrew, doesn’t it? It would be appropriate for a bicycle team to be sponsored and named after a cold brew, but such is not the case.
I would like to give thanks to our city manager, staff, administration, mayor, and City Council members for all the hard work they did in the year 2013.
I’d like to offer a rebuttal to a portion of Mr. Keith Matthews’ letter. I thought Mr. Matthews’ letter was well written and was very cordial to the hard-working firefighters.
I am a senior at White River High School and got the chance to watch how technology grew over the past few years. We are able to learn things from current events going on around the world. I am grateful for the technology we have, we use it a lot and it comes in handy. On the other side of that, I would rather go back to using books.
I am writing on the issue of the White River technology levy.
As your state representatives, we are encouraging the voters in the Enumclaw School District to vote “yes” on the M&O levy that is currently on the ballot.
