Kokanee salmon run -

Vote for I-732 and preserve salmon | Letter

  • Oct 15, 2016 at 12:00PM

I recently moved back to Issaquah, and was able to attend Salmon Days for the first time in four years. As a kid, I never really appreciated the beauty and uniqueness of a festival that celebrates the return of such a resilient animal. I love our salmon, and want this tradition to be preserved for years to come.

Fine parade in Issaquah, but lose the ‘Jesus nut’ | Letter

  • Oct 8, 2016 at 11:30AM

Congratulations on a fine parade. I especially liked the Hawaiian barefoot chief in a grass-skirt who blew a conch shell when I asked. But the lone truck to broadcast on a PA system was a Jesus nut — I find it objectionable to be proselytized to when watching a public parade celebrating salmon.

Giving diapers to families in need is really important. Help Eastside Baby Corner (EBC) spread that message through Oct. 2 during Diaper Need Awareness Week by supporting the National Diaper Bank Network. You can do this by following EBC on Facebook and Twitter as we share stories of families impacted by diaper need and ways that we can all work together to help local families thrive.
