Another Way to Influence Community:

Aside from casting your ballot tomorrow, you can make a difference this week by lending your opinion to the naming of three city parks. Until next Monday, the public is allowed to suggest official names for what are known as South Lake Union Park (near Westlake Ave. and Valley St.), the Magnolia Elementary School playfield, and Fremont Peak Park (in upper Fremont).

Your ideas should reflect geograhical, historical, or cultural references. Naming the park after someone who has passed on is only acceptable if said person has been compost for three or more years. After next Monday, a panel will review suggestions and pick their favorites to present to the Parks Department chief, who is evidently the reigning official in such matters. Suggestions may be mailed to Seattle Parks and Recreation, Park-Naming Committee, 100 Dexter Ave. N., Seattle, WA 98109, or by e-mail to
