Don and Kelli Reiter led a recruitment event at Covington Library July 22 for prospective trainers of guide dogs for blind people.

Let’s hear from people in power

From Donald Krenzer:

I would be interested in seeing a column called something like “Ask your City Government.” The idea would be that readers could submit questions (not commentary) specific to issues of concern related to the city. Those questions could be passed on to the city official for a response, which would later be published along with the original question.

Folks often express themselves in letters to the editor, which often receive bantering responses from other readers. It would be nice to hear from those that have the power to really address those issues.

Love those puppies and the coverage

From: Kelli Reiter, co-leader of PUPS2C4U Puppy Raising Club for Guide Dogs for the Blind:

We wanted to thank you so much for sending a photographer to our recruitment event at the Covington Library and, especially, for the beautiful publicity you gave our club with the front cover of the Reporter on July 26. We were on vacation and a friend actually sent it to us in California.

We appreciate your coverage of our event and helping our club recruit new folks in the community to raise guide dog puppies.

Heavy hitter

From D’Ann Tedford:

The softball player pictured on page 14 of the Aug. 9 edition is Tom Patterson, not the “home run king” you describe. Tom Leavitt (pictured) hit a home run nearly every game of the 24-game seniors’ softball season. He is indisputably the Maple Valley Senior Co-ed Softball home run king.

Speaking of kids and precious clutter

From Kim M. Sheppell:

I read Tiffany Doerr Guerzon’s column about preserving kids’ artwork minus the clutter. It was very informative. I wanted to share a service/product we created just for his purpose.

We have young school-age children and struggled with what to do with the barrage of artwork they came home with from school and the artwork they created at home. My partner and I started the ART:archives. It is a custom-designed digital solution to showcase, store and archive these precious treasures.
