Power outages: City needs to use more common sense in tree maintenance

First major wind storm of the season last week and the first round of major power outages hit [“Winds leave thousands in dark,” Local News, Oct. 25]. Looking at the City of Seattle’s outage map, trees are usually always the root cause. Why can’t the city be more proactive about keeping tree growth in check? A…

Global warming: Is Seattle heat a side effect?

Times headline was a disservice to readers Editor, The Times: The headline on your [July 29] page-one weather story was an attention-grabbing “Hottest day ever?” But it was the subhead that has been bothering me all day: “Global warming? More like a high-pressure system and humidity that are parked over our region.” This subhead irresponsibly reassures people that…

It’s hot in Seattle: Does this prove global warming exists?

100-degree summer days will be the future of Seattle Editor, The Times: Professor Clifford Mass neglects climate change in his statement, “One day, your grandchildren will ask you did you really experience the temperatures of July 29, 2009?” What was it like? How did you survive it? I hope my grandchildren ask me those questions. But it…

City management: Seattle officials rewarding poor performance

Resignations should come over $40k bonus The Seattle Times informed the public of Mayor Greg Nickels inappropriately paying a bonus to Seattle City Light Superintendent Jorge Carrasco. When the city cannot balance its budget and the superintendent allowed City Light to have a $90 million budget gap, there isn’t an acceptable reason to have paid Carrasco…

Snow response: City should be praised for investigation

It’s time to move on from snowstorm blunders For about six months now, much has been said about the Seattle Department of Transportation’s (SDOT) performance during the December 2008 snowstorms. Even as the summer sun breaks through to give us these beautiful Seattle days, it is right to check the overall emergency preparedness in the event…

Snow: the never-ending story

Ask not what your city can do for you Much discussion about the winter storms has focused on what our city and our county did not do for us [“Staff botched snow response,” page one, March 19], and there seem to be real grounds for these criticisms. But far too little has been said about our…

Seattle’s snow job

Next time, check with Spokane As a former resident of Eastern Washington, I agree the city’s response to the December snow was less than satisfactory [“Staff botched snow response,” page one, March 19]. As a retired military individual I also know there are lessons to be learned from every operation, successful or otherwise. Rather than go to…

Seattle’s snow job

There’s a reason leaders must get to their jobs Most jurisdictions have an emergency response protocol that includes, among other things, the ability of the executive staff to convene at an appropriate site to be able to make decisions and authorize actions and/or expenditures in order to mitigate an emergency. I assume the city of Seattle has…

Seattle’s embarrassing snow job

Did I wake up in Chicago? When I opened Thursday’s Seattle Times, I blinked away the notion I was reading Chicago’s Tribune! What the heck is going on? The mayor and sub-mayor get their streets cleared immediately [“Staff botched snow response,” page one, March 19], while blaming Mother Nature for two weeks’ stop-action at Christmastime (pity…

Seattle’s botched response to snow

Suspicions confirmed Courtney Blethen/The Seattle Times Denny Street on Capitol Hill going down towards I-5, was closed all for days due to the December snow and ice. Sledders took over the hill Editor, The Times: Thank you for the page-one story [“Staff botched snow response,” March 19] that confirms what any Seattleite who was paying attention during the December…
