Typical that the people of Woodinville are against the Wellington Park.

Because of these anti-park feelings, it took years to get the soccer fields in downtown Woodinville.

Kids need parks as them stay out of trouble.

Good thing Redmond, Bellevue, Bothell, and Kirkland residents believe  parks are a good thing.

So Woodinville, do you feel those cities need to pay and supply parks for your kids or do you want your kids to get in trouble?

Eight to 12 empty kegs valued at approx $50 each were stolen from the Station Pizzeria last week.

I was hoping that once the tweakers realize they can’t sell them for cash (it’s illegal for metal recycling companies to buy them), they might want to drop them back off anonymously or might just end up ditching them somewhere.

We’d really like to get them back; it’d be great if people kept an eye out for them, but I know that’s a lot to ask of people. I suspect they will end up in a dumpster. I am just frustrated because I’m guessing the people who stole them won’t have any use for them and we’d really prefer not to pay the breweries $1,500 for this if there’s any chance of getting them back.

Bank America is handing out flyers that effective August 27, 2012, drive-up teller services will not be available at certain branches across the USA. Cottage Lake Woodinville is one of them! They are trying to encourage online banking, texting, etc., which many senior citizens do not do.

This affects handicapped people who are able to drivebut not as able to get out of the car as easily and this will affect parents with small children who will have to pull all the kids out of the car and drag them into the bank!

Shame on them for taking away drive-up services that will affect so many people in so many ways.

Call the branch and complain at (206) 358-2971 (press option 4 to reach branch personnel).

The flyer phone number gets you someone in North Carolina or elsewhere who hasn’t got a clue as to what you are talking about.

The Woodinville Falcon cheerleaders held a food drive Saturday, July 14 at the Cottage Lake Safeway to help the Hopelink End Summer Hunger program. Over 860 pounds of peanut butter and jelly were collected and donated to Hopelink.

Thank you, Woodinville, for being such an incredibly supportive community.
