Letters to the Editor

Letter: Work to preserve democracy

July 12, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Thanks to Dennis Allison for his opinion on gerrymandering (“Address gerrymandering,” Our Readers’ Views, July 7). I strongly agree that in order to prevent gerrymandering we need an amendment to the U.S. Constitution and that it should use an objective mathematical methodology to create districts. Read story

Letter: Support fire rescue levy

July 11, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Soon you will receive your ballot to support the Clark-Cowlitz Fire Rescue EMS levy. If this levy passes, it will provide full-time around-the-clock paramedics at each of their six fire stations and drastically reduce medical response times. Read story

Letter: Crack down on parking scofflaws

July 11, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Is it just me or am I missing something? While having a nice dinner at Mio Sushi on 134th, I saw four vehicles park in the handicap zone and use the Bank of America walk-up teller machine. Not one of them had a handicap placard or license plate. Read story

Letter: Republicans pro-birth, not pro-life

July 11, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Well, I guess it’s time for us women to buy our burqas, not black of course, but bright MAGA red. Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell have finally brought their radical “conservatism” to America, so we must dress appropriately. Read story

July 11, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

I served as a Clark Public Utilities commissioner for 30 years (1982-2012) and worked alongside Nancy Barnes when she was first elected in 1992. Read story

Letter: Court creates potential targets

July 10, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Current Republicans in Congress, and our former president (by packing the Supreme Court with liars), have decided to protect the unborn and still allow the sale of assault weapons. I get it, create more potential targets. Read story

Letter: Enforce fireworks laws

July 10, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

I read the report today that hundreds of fireworks complaints were lodged in the city of Vancouver, but the fire marshal decided to tell the lawbreakers “Shame on you” instead of issuing any tickets or fines. Read story

Letter: Bigotry is evident in letters

July 10, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

I have grown used to the tilt of the letters published in this space, but I must still register my shock and disappointment at the open anti-Catholic bigotry, reminiscent of the Know Nothings of the 1850s, or of the KKK in Oregon in the 1920s, which appeared on this page… Read story

Letter: Provide easier access to parks

July 10, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

I was disappointed but not surprised to see the Clark County Council once again bow to pressure from local developers by easing the rules on open space for new multifamily developments. Read story
