Hunting season is fast approaching. Edelweiss subdivision residents would like to remind non-resident hunters that the roads within the subdivision are privately owned and maintained. Residents of the subdivision pay for the continued and increasing maintenance of these roads.
Last year, traffic using Highland Road to access the Rendezvous area doubled during hunting season and many of those drivers exceeded the 15 mph speed limit. The extra traffic, and particularly those traveling at higher speed, contributes to the deterioration of our private roads and reduces safety for our residents.
Please use the available public roads.

McKinley for the 4th
Voters’ pamphlets were mailed and received this week and contain information about the races for county commissioner, state representative and U.S. representative to Congress. (Pamphlets available at the library earlier were incomplete.)
See page 35 for U.S. Representative candidate Douglas E. McKinley for Congressional District 4. I hadn’t been paying much attention until I read McKinley’s statement in the pamphlet. McKinley’s statement says it all! Voters please know we have an opportunity to replace Rep. Newhouse, who has been occupying an office without much effort other than window dressing to assist eastern and rural Washington. Elect McKinley, who will be working for you and your neighbors in our state. Until now we have been railroaded by having no policies and no direction from Newhouse for building long-term social and economic security. He did not attend community forums, he sent out party-line responses to inquiries and suggestions and has been completely ineffectual.
Let’s sweep the House and elect McKinley.

Moore in the 12th
I am supporting Adrianne Moore for our 12th Legislative District representative. For too long, our area of Washington has had no voice in the state Legislature because Keith Goehner doesn’t caucus with the Democratic Party, and that’s the party that holds the power in Olympia.
Adrianne has already proven to be a tireless advocate for working people, most especially those who work in service professions and laborers. She has advocated energetically on behalf of teachers and schoolchildren, for better schools and better working conditions, which is more vital than ever during these COVID-19 times. And so it is no wonder that she has garnered the endorsements of the Washington Labor Council, AFL-CIO; the Washington Education Association PAC; North Central Washington Labor Council; United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 1439; the American Federation of Teachers, Washington AFL-CIO; the Washington Democratic Latino Caucus; the Service Employees International Union 775; Washington Conservation Voters; Environment and Climate Caucus; International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union 191; Protec 17, a professional and technical workers union since 1918; and both the National Women’s Political Caucus of Washington, and the Win With Women PAC.
She has also been endorsed by several notable individuals including Sen. Patty Murray.
Adrianne shares my passion to see affordable health care for all Washingtonians. Let’s make sure she gets elected and further these causes we feel so strongly about.

We are fortunate to have Adrianne Moore, an exceptionally well-qualified candidate, running for State Representative.
I got to know Adrianne a little a few years ago when her son attended Little Star Preschool in Winthrop, where I work. Our conversations ranged widely but were often about the joys and challenges of raising children (there we were in the playground, watching them play). It didn’t take long for me to see that Adrianne is both very smart and very fair-minded. That she has a good sense of humor and a warm heart. That she pays attention. That she’s serious, pragmatic, and solution-oriented, as good a listener as a talker.
At this time many of us are wondering: How in the face of so many challenges are we going to rebuild and strengthen economies, communities and families? How will we work together to increase our resiliency? Only through rebuilding social infrastructure, through addressing inequities and lost opportunities in education, health care, housing, fair employment. Only through strengthening and nurturing the basic units and institutions of society, from the ground up. This is work that Adrianne understands, because she’s been doing it for years.
Please join me in voting for Adrianne Moore for District 12 State Representative.
