Resident Appeals for the Return of Stolen New Glory Flags and Poles

July 23, 2016

Submitted by Kingsgate Resident Al Drinkwine:glory flag

July 13, 2016

Having lived in the Kingsgate community for over 20 years our family truly enjoys the many friends and advantages our community offers. Friendliness and cleanliness are assets we can all be proud of. With all these qualities however, we do have a problem. Some individuals do not respect the private property of others.

Over these 20 years of living in Kingsgate valuable tools were stolen twice from my locked truck. Once a side window was smashed to gain entry. On a different occasion someone took a hammer to our son’s windshield totally destroying it.

Aside from our vehicles, we have had three flags, with mounting poles, stolen from the front of our garage. A fourth time, our flag was burned on our lawn. The last two thefts have occurred within the past two weeks. The Kirkland police have been contacted. Perhaps this disregard for private property is in part due to a lack of knowledge pertaining the New Glory Flag we proudly fly.

To better understand the New Glory Flag let this military veteran explain. The flag we display is not a gay flag. The New Glory Flag was designed by returning WW II veterans based on their realization that the Old Glory Flag did not represent the diversity of the individuals they had protected our nation with. By utilizing the rainbow, in preference to the red and white stripes, these veterans added a far more meaningful dimension. In addition to diversity, the rainbow incorporates God’s covenant with all humankind. A spiritual symbol of peace and rebirth following a devastating war. Additionally, the red stripes on our Old Glory Flag represent bloodshed, which they may have seen far too much of.

The Gay Flag is a much later spinoff of the New Glory and does not include the field of stars. The Gay Flag is simply a rainbow, also recognizing diversity and unity.

Should these flags and poles be returned, no questions will be asked.

Thank You,

Al Drinkwine

Report Minor Crimes to Kirkland Police

June 27, 2016

The Kingsgate 3&4 HOA warns residents that summertime tends to see a spike in minor crimes and disturbances and to please report incidents to the non-emergency line at the Kirkland Police Department.

Earlier this month, a child was walking home from swim practice when a silver car that was driving by attempted to pelt him with eggs.

Also, this author’s own American flag was stolen off of the front of the house just after Memorial Day this year.

These types of incidents start up about this time of year and continue off and on throughout summer.  If you see something happen or if your home or car is vandalized, please call the Kirkland Police non emergency line to report it. The KPD does track these incidents and if enough are seen in a particular area and or a pattern developed, they will add extra patrols to that area. Thank you!

Bring Pets in to Avoid Tempting Coyotes

June 27, 2016

coyote2Kingsgate 3&4 Board President Alex Long has recommend that all residents bring pets in at night to avoid coyote attacks. A home owner on 121st reported having a coyote visit their backyard several nights in a row earlier this month to feast on the remains of a neighborhood cat. This yard is fenced-in with a 6-foot high fence.

Coyotes tend to roam the neighborhood from midnight to sunrise, so please be careful when you let small dogs or cats out in the evening.
