Letter: Demilitarize local police

April 8, 2021, 6:00am Letters to Editor

We need ways to keep us safe in our communities. The thought of military equipment being used on our community streets puts fear in my heart and serious concern about those who are charged to keep the peace. One must be trained in war tactics to use war machines. Read story

Letter: Take back the 3rd District

April 8, 2021, 6:00am Letters to Editor

From 1960 to 2011, the 3rd Congressional District had a Democratic representative, every year except a four-year period in the late '90s. The district has been deeply blue. Now, Democrats only see urban strongholds as their base. How'd we get here? Read story

Letter: TV needs censorship

April 8, 2021, 6:00am Letters to Editor

I grew up in the '50s; there were three TV networks and strong censorship. Elvis danced, but you could not see his hips; Lucy and Desi had twin beds. Today you cannot even watch the news in the evening without seeing ads with homosexual exposure. The evening action shows seem… Read story

Letter: Representation requires response

Letter: What about dangers on the road?

April 7, 2021, 6:00am Letters to Editor

I read The Columbian online news several times a day. Every so often I'll buy a print version because it has more to offer. Recently I've been surprised at the uptick of deaths caused by motorists. Why do we talk about COVID-19 morbidity but not the high morbidity on roadways? Read story

Letter: Let nature guide you

April 7, 2021, 6:00am Letters to Editor

I was motivated to write this letter after reading Thomas Friedman’s book “Thanks for Being Late,” an optimistic guide to thriving in the age of acceleration. Read story

Letter: Council’s reasoning is dubious

April 6, 2021, 6:00am Letters to Editor

I was dismayed that the Clark County Council rejected the housing advisory committee’s recommendation for a zoning change that would allow construction of low income housing (“Clark County Council balances job creation with affordable housing in land-use decisions,” The Columbian, March 21).

Letter: Comments don’t show racism

April 6, 2021, 6:00am Letters to Editor

The Columbian has printed several articles and letters about Judge Darvin Zimmerman's live mic conversation with Court Commissioner Abbie Bartlett. Comments Zimmerman made have been criticized as racist or racially biased by judges, lawyers, politicians and others. Read story

Letter: Republicans not what they seem

April 6, 2021, 6:00am Letters to Editor

I have been a Republican for 67 years and would like to apologize to the Republican Party; I have not been sick for over a year, so I will be continue “masking up” during flu season. I would also like to apologize to the Republican Party for keeping the Bible… Read story
