Letters to the Editor

Letter: Support Lewallen for Congress

September 27, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Having dedicated over four decades to elections in Washington state, I feel compelled to share a vital insight. In the past two decades, not one rematch for federal or statewide office in our state has resulted in a flipped outcome. This fact underlines the need for fresh perspectives and new… Read story

Letter: Something is better than nothing

September 27, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

I read the editorial “Safe Stay communities humane, efficient,” (In Our View, Sept. 21). The city, while not perfect addressing homeless, is doing something. And something is better than doing nothing. The goal in the end is to allow these sites to help stabilize, not become permanent… Read story

Letter: Place penalties on littering

September 27, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Your recent article “Marred by litter: Millions of pounds of trash soil Washington roads and state lands” (Washington State Standard, Sept. 20) makes no mention of littering laws that levy fines on people who create the mess along our highways. Read story

Letter: Lock up Trump

September 27, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Donald Trump supporters made buildings shake with that now-familiar three-beat chant: “Lock her up! Lock her up!” But after spending millions on congressional investigations of Hillary Clinton, Republicans had nothing to show for it. The FBI Director, James Comey, said, “No reasonable prosecutor would bring charges.” Read story

Letter: Salmon resource is mismanaged

September 26, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Has the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife lost its way because of the Inslee Administration? Or so it seems, the agency does not seem to care about management of game or fisheries anymore. Read story

Letter: Punishment works in war on drugs

September 26, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Thank you to the Editorial Board for stating that the catastrophic failure of Oregon’s Measure 110 in part “can be attributed to a misguided idea.” Read story

Letter: Gluesenkamp Perez on right side

September 26, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Joe Kent is at it again — twisting facts to fit his narrative and promote himself as someone with foreign policy credibility (“U.S. position cruel, irresponsible,” The Columbian, Sept. 18). Cruelty is not helping to fund Ukraine’s war effort. Cruelty and shortsightedness is not assisting. Read story

Letter: The look of influence peddling

September 26, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

The Republicans in Congress (claiming concern for justice) have been digging into Hunter Biden’s businesses. In their pursuit of justice (always nonpartisan) why haven’t they checked up on the Trump boys? Read story

Letter: Be honest about fossil fuels

September 25, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Why do we speak in euphemisms when speaking honestly would serve us better? Read story

Letter: Kent’s stance is immoral

September 23, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Joe Kent’s op-ed shows that he has little understanding of any of the issues in the war in Ukraine. Firstly, NATO cannot admit a country that is at war. It would obligate NATO to implement Article 5 and actively engage in the war to defend the newly admitted country. None… Read story
