Thank you, Mukilteo! Kushpointe, your local recreational and medically endorsed cannabis dispensary, would like to acknowledge a few priceless things about this community. Our team of eight …

Looks like this letter might be redundant as I see a survey shows that most residents do not favor a change in renaming the Speedway. However, it does call into question the sensibilities of the …

The City has proposed the zoning of Hawthorne Hall (the old Boys and Girls Club) at 1134 Second St. be changed from residential single family to commercial mixed use. Our community has made clear …

Regarding racism in America, it’s my opinion that it has to be officially acknowledged as having existed, with all the ugliness and warts it has. One thing that I hear from some White Americans …

Thanks for the colorblind column

Just got around to reading what you said about learning to be colorblind. I can relate. I’m 75 and was raised mainly in La Habra, California, where I saw lots of Mexican kids in high school, …

Colorblindness the new racism?

To Andy Galuska, the City Council, and the Planning Commission: How tragic to see the City resorting to the destruction of the quaint small-town feel of Mukilteo. I lived in Mukilteo for over 38 …
