For me, this coming year is going to be all about supporting principals and their plans for academic achievement for every child. Last year was certainly a time of listening and building — a foundational year — as I came to Tukwila. That included shaping our new strategic plan with the input of hundreds of voices.

Tukwila Village, which will jumpstart further revitalization of Tukwila International Boulevard, is 15 years in the making, fulfilling a vision by city leaders that’s even older.
Three words come to mind over this past 16 years: patience, persistence, and determination. I sincerely appreciate everyone who stayed the course and never gave up on our original vision for this important corridor in Tukwila.
Why have a law if it is not going to be enforced? It’s a common question. After July 4, one usually hears about illegal fireworks. Other times, it is illegal parking, exceeding the speed limit, talking on cell phones. The list is long.
The Small Business Administration (SBA) celebrates veterans. As these men and women transition to civilian life, we stand ready with training courses to make their dreams of business ownership a reality.
Today, there are more than 1.4 million lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT)- owned small businesses in the United States. These businesses play an important role in our economy and our communities. And, $790 billion was the estimated buying power of the LGBT population in 2012. This was a 20 percent increase in the buying power of the LGBT community from 2006-1012.

Understanding that people need a chance to improve their lives and contribute, our Tukwila court works to combine accountability and justice with compassion and opportunity to move in a better direction.
I hope your family has a safe, energizing, and fun respite from school during the next few months. As the district’s lead educator, however, there is one seasonal danger lurking in the warm weather that I must warn you about: Summer slide.
Our first-ever Residents’ Guide for the Tukwila community is in this month’s issue of the Tukwila Reporter.
I have spoken with my doctor and, when referrals are needed, I seek out those who will take care of me and support my end-of-life choices. How about you?
Cascade Water Alliance ensures that each of you – more than 350,000 residents and 20,000 businesses – have clean, safe and reliable water every day. Our membership, consisting of the cities of Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland, Issaquah, Tukwila, and the Sammamish Plateau and Skyway Water and Sewer Districts, work to produce water of the highest quality.
The New York Times has deemed the Tukwila School District to be the most diverse in the nation, and this type of true multiculturalism — where no minority is the majority — is perhaps the greatest life lesson in itself. We do not believe in separate and unequal, but equity and equality for each and every student, not just some.
Our environment, health, safety and communities are at risk from decisions being made now to transport and export trainloads of coal and oil through western Washington, Billy Frank Jr. wrote in his monthly column "Being Frank" released Monday morning.
