Need to accept responsibility

I know this must really stick in the gullet of Liberals, but I guess maybe the Republicans were right. Obamacare is being shut down for an “extended” fix.

Where is the personal responsibility? | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

s it too much to ask that our elected county office holders simply do the job they were elected to do? I read the past articles and letters to the editor regarding the activities of various county employees and the County Executive and all sorts of “cloak and dagger” emailing, FOI requests, and smooth–talking non-answers regarding all this activity and wonder why they aren’t simply doing the work of the county and nothing more or less and regarding their public office as an opportunity to uphold it with dignity, honesty and integrity?

Sen. Haugen should be re-elected | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

n 1999, Initiative 695 passed ending the motor vehicle excise tax (MVET) which car owners used to pay when renewing their car tabs. But since roughly 75 percent of this lost MVET revenue had gone for transportation purposes including ferry operations, the ferry system has been in a budgetary crunch these past twelve years.

Who would steal from a food bank? | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

A small church near Granite Falls offers a food bank once a month. They have a little room for storage. Someone went in (broke in) and stole all the food in the freezer and food in the little storage room.

White billionaires want to control the education of poor people. Why?

We support Sen. Haugen

We are writing you this letter in support of our mother, Senator Mary Margaret Haugen. This is the first time in her political career that all four of her children have felt the need to speak out. Our mother has worked tirelessly for all of the citizens of the 10th District, not just Democrats or Republicans, but for all people. We are writing you this letter because we are deeply offended by all of the negative “Hit” pieces that have been mailed out by her opponent’s supporters.

Thank you for the support | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

We would like to take this time to praise and give thanks for all the prayers, support, donations and ongoing efforts to help the family of Bryan Walden. For those who don’t know Bryan or hadn’t heard of his accident, he was topping a tree on his property when something dreadful went wrong. He fell about 25 feet with the ladder and tree landing on top of him.

Women’s rights? | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Offensive! That is what Suzan DelBene’s latest television ad was to me. First, because of the internet and all sorts of editing programs, she was able to insert her opponent, John Koster, holding “yes” and “no” signs as if in answer to what she perceives are women’s rights.

A reminder to small businesses | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

After purchasing several products as gifts from a well-known Arlington business, our family member (the recipient) found that one of the items didn’t fit. She and her partner, with receipt in hand, entered the business and kindly requested to do an exchange. They were met with skepticism and a less than cordial attitude. They live out of the area and are not your “typical” couple.

Thanks for supporting food bank | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

On behalf of the Arlington Community Food Bank we would like to thank the Stillaguamish Tribe, Arlington Hardware & Lumber, city of Arlington, Wal-Mart and the greater Arlington community for their very generous donations to the Food Bank capital building fund. Soon you will see the ground breaking for the new building. We have to vacate our current facility by Jan.1, 2013, so time is of the essence.

Good Law or Bad Law? You Decide. | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

In order to fully understand the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Affordable Health Care Act, one has to understand what the Supreme Court actually is authorized to do under the Constitution. It is only authorized to rule on the “constitutionality” of anything brought before it.

Food Bank thanks community for support | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Those of us at the Arlington Food Bank wish to express our heartfelt gratitude to all the organizations who were involved in helping us with our holiday food drive. It was with the assistance of those in the Arlington and Lakewood School Districts and the Arlington Fire Department’s Santa Run, along with considerable support from the food drives at our local grocery stores, that we received substantial food donations which made the holiday food drive a huge success. Overall, our community enabled us to assist more than 300 families for this past holiday season. Your kindness helped so many who have so little.
