Elections are getting out of hand

Dear Editor,

I walked downtown last night and once again those signs are all over the place for one or more persons wanting your vote to elect or re-elect someone or another. The sad part of every election in this state is those signs are thrown into ditches or just left standing, littering the highways and streets of this city, county and state.

But there was something more that showed up on my walk that told me that elections are getting too out of hand. I noticed one persons signs saying re-elect me for congress had been placed and their opponent’s signs had been thrown into the brush, destroyed or just removed.

I am not sure why our politicians can’t just get along, they expect us to. Removing one candidates signs because you are not secure in your job, because you have totally destroyed this economy, is not dirty politics it is dirty humanity. At lease that is my opinion.

Thank you from Grandparents Raising Grandchildren programDear Editor,

The Grandparents Raising Grandchildren program in Lake Stevens would like to thank all of the amazing community supporters who help make our group strong.

We would also like to thank The Lake Stevens Family Center for partnering with us and providing meals for our monthly meetings. The Boys and Girls Club who offers free use of their space each month so kids can play while the grandparents have their private sharing time, and to Greg’s Fishing who provided a personalized night of fishing for the grandkids this summer.

This group does not have funding and appreciates your assistance so much. The group meets the second Tuesday of each month at the Boys & Girls Club and dinner is provided at 5:30 p.m. and the meeting is from 6 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. with sharing time, speakers, resources, and amazing support.

Thank you to everyone who supports this program.

Kelli Lynn
