Lawmakers urge community to stand up for neighbors

Yet again, a fiend rears its awful head. Intolerance seeded in ignorance and reaped in hate has surfaced this past year against the Islamic Center of Bothell (ICOB). Loathsome acts range from spray-paint vandalism, to the burning of an Islamic Center flag, to the destruction of Islamic books. The mosque had scheduled informational meetings around the community. Sadly, however, fear for the safety of congregation-members forced cancellation of these amiable gatherings. A good many residents of Snohomish and King counties … Continue reading

Stanford Does JLARC, Part Deux

It goes by the beguiling moniker “JLARC,” and its raison d’être is boosting efficiency and accountability in the public sector. Doing more with less, some call it, or just plain old working smarter. But call it what you will, the fact of the matter is that taxpayer dollars simply have to be stretched as far as possible. In that good-government vein, state Rep.
