Bats have an unfortunate reputation. A small, unscientific survey of our staff said they associate bats with “vampires,” “Mitzvah,” “Michael Keaton,” and “Nelson Cruz.” Clearly, we needed to learn more. So we sat down with our in-house expert, Public Health Veterinarian Beth Lipton, who reminded us that bats aren’t all bad, but you really shouldn’t touch them.

I desire to make it clear that I am speaking as an individual and not on behalf of the King County Fire District 28 board of commissioners. A great amount of work has taken place in KCFD 28 since I was elected two years ago. It has been a tumultuous time, but we have made some major course corrections. The state of the fire district has improved immensely, but we still need your help at the polls in the next few weeks.

‘Tis the season for charge and countercharge, smear for smear, for endorsing candidates through letters to the editor, for articles from pundits like me, pointing all this out. Usually, the tactics of character assassination and ethics violations are used at the state and national level, but this year’s local contests are following the higher levels of government at least in their viciousness.

Our (Enumclaw) City Council has been plagued with failed proposals, mismanaged funding, petty bickering among themselves and with other city services long enough. A few examples are the nonexistent “Welcome” center with an appealed debt of $582,000, the failed proposed town theme (Equestrian City Of The West), the Expo Center that recently needed bailing out along with the district’s proposed $65 million needed for our failing school’s infrastructure. All of which has become a crippling strain on the citizens of our community.

I am voting for Darrel Dickson because he understands he has a duty to the taxpayer and is not afraid to ask the tough questions. He stepped up and had the taxpayers’ best interest at heart when the PSE gas utility negotiations for the city of Buckley were in front of the Enumclaw Council.
