Keep it simple!

Dear editor,

In regards to the 20 mph limit, keep it simple; enforce current limits! For example, the Edmonds Avenue speedway!

Sincerely,

Jim Diffendorfer

Renton

Renton stepped up

Dear editor,

My name is Martha Barrett and I am the Community Programs Manager here for the Renton Salvation Army. I wanted to mail you in response to requests, offers and willingness to volunteer to help at the community supper. This has been a wonderful response to a great article written by (Haley Ausbun) in the Renton Reporter, and I deeply thank you.

As I have said many times, this community is inspirational!

Our to our community supper calendar can be found at https://renton.salvationarmy.org/renton_corps/renton-food-bank?random=895. At anytime you are interested in helping out at the supper, feel free to go onto our calendar and check for any openings. If you would like to be put on a volunteer need list, please let me know so that I can add you.

The response has been overwhelming and this is a credit to the amazing city of Renton and its residents.

Sincerely,

Martha Barrett,

Renton

Proud to be in Renton

Dear editor,

As a longtime Renton resident, I was thrilled to see PRIDE becoming visible throughout the area. Flags representing the LGBTQ community were visible, displays popping up at local religious buildings, an article splashed across our local paper and much more. We were beginning to step into a new day. One of acceptance.

But, things can change so quickly. Some days you take a look around and ask yourself, why?

My former church of 14 years (United Christian Church) where my brothers and sisters remain has been vandalized for making their doors open to ALL. We ALL should support each other, respect each other, love one another and pray for one another. We have a world filled with many problems that require attention. We ALL need to make a change.

That change needs to start within our hearts. Let’s put the focus where it needs to be, not causing harm. Not causing destruction. Not damaging things that generate a safe haven for others.

Let’s pray that the hear tof the individiual(s) that demostrated these evil actions are healed because there is some major turmoil going on within them.

Sincerely,

Swannee Rivers
