It hurt very much for your paper to portray King County Animal Control in such a light in a political cartoon in the March 29 issue on the Opinion page. Without permission to do so or even a visit to see if it is really true, your paper made it look like we were neglecting the animals.
In an effort to stop Yarrow Bay from purchasing and developing Lake Wilderness Golf Course, the city of Maple Valley purchased the course. Now the city is looking to bail out the golf course residents again by establishing the conservation easement which would prohibit any further development – forever (March 29, Reporter, “Whose green should pay for greenery?”). And they’re asking the residents of Lake Wilderness Golf Course to help pay for it. One resident exclaimed, “I didn’t buy a golf course, [Maple Valley] did.” She’s not alone. Other golf course residents are complaining that it’s not fair.
