Chas 1 year ago on Rep. Walsh heard both sides before deciding

The right of children to a future outweigh anything involving a gun.

Why I know anything about some ancestor's at all is that they mustered at the local armory and presented their weapons to inspection. Most were fined sometimes throughout their lifetime. Amazing what records survive over three centuries.

You want Original Intent? It's there for you to read and discover on your own. You're not going to like it. They were Regulated Militia.

Mr. Shane Laib, your attendance demonstrates your dedication and respect, or the lack thereof, of the People's business. Please step down before you become an embarrassment. Sometimes life becomes a different plan than what you'd thought.

We know now that the Washington State Constitutional Convention considered super-majority votes—and did purposely not require them.

I suggest the district ask the public to build a great Sciences building. That is the greatest need.

It's time to consider building to a storm-severity measure, ie: no asphalt shingles/ flat roof. (Does the Green Park Library or Sharpstein atrium, or Blue Ridge still leak?) Many schools built with flat rooves were later trussed.

When the second gym was built a bone was tossed (to the non-jocks) to build the lecture hall. It lacked a Green Room, make-up rooms, rest rooms in the back-stage areas from the beginning. It was then over-sold/marketed as a theater/ performing arts building. Some portion of these monies were to fix that 1990s omission.

I'd recommend the district ask the public for a state-of-the-art Sciences building. Technology is advancing so quickly that classroom teaching as we know it may be significantly different. (If I could have tested as fast as I read I'd have finished the history/civics portion of my education by 15)

Show us a great project involving smaller monies and bring it in on budget and on time.

That would be how many different weight rooms since 1980?

Education is changing so quickly that the classroom as we know it may soon be gone. This would most especially effect the high school grade levels.

The lab vents are direly needed. But too much money and too large a project for too little value.

I'm pleased to see the Aviary settled. I'm sorry to see it go, but it is finally decided.

I'm pleased with the priorities. (and thankful we have a newspaper to report them)

For not thrilled and disaster—get over it.

Time only moves in one direction. Many of us are weary of the same social conflicts by initiative every two years.

i'm not crazy about the MJ law. Our present law and its enforcement have brought a general disregard of law. That was the primary reason Prohibition ended. Too many flout the law and society cracks.

The letter to the editor that heaped abuse of Rep Walsh brought out the most vile of the extremists. I hesitate to call them Republican.

Rep. Walsh voted equality. There's not a greater issue. No one has lost anything.
