April 26, 2020, 6:01am Columns

How would you feel if the city wanted to turn your residential neighborhood into a major urban area? That is what is proposed for our Vancouver Heights neighborhoods and, not surprisingly, we Heights residents aren’t happy about it (The Columbian, Feb. 10 and 20).

McManus: Union eroding before our eyes
