The city had "planned" on new families moving to Enumclaw to help cover their "overbudget" sewer plant.

Increase in sewer rates puts strain on residents

Not many years ago, the citizenry of Enumclaw (or any small town), would have been up in arms if the city fathers forced a 55 percent raise on them for anything and this is just on part of our utilities.

Weighing in on the mayoral race

Regarding the mayor's race, we have one tried and true mayor, with a good record and accomplishments that can't be denied. John Wise goes out of his way to be accommodating, cares about people and lives quite graciously through some staunch criticism. Older and Wise-r is a good combo. I hope at the time to vote, people will think, not act upon impulse and just vote for a friend, regardless of which friend that may be.

Reader opposes Obama’s view on abortion

I am writing this letter because I am deeply disturbed because of President Obama’s support of the practice of abortion. And the Catholic Church is also, like me, adamantly opposed to killing in the womb. But Notre Dame University awarded the president the privilege of being its commencement speaker and the recipient of an honorary degree,

Thank You

A big thank you for the wonderful support from the Enumclaw community for the AIDS/HIV Caregiver Kits Project sponsored by Enumclaw Rotary working through World Vision. On June 6, more than 30 volunteers from Rotary, Calvary Presbyterian Church, Mutual of Enumclaw and community members assembled 175 basic health care kits to send overseas. This was made possible by the $5,260 raised by the community to underwrite this international outreach. We hope to continue this fun and productive project again. Anyone interested in helping to plan the next kit build can contact Nancy Baer at 360-825-4484.
