Letter: Ancestral fish are overharvested

September 12, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Real is in the numbers from our state hatcheries. Read story

Letter: Mental health, alcohol help available

September 9, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

I’ve recently had my first trip to jail. Some may consider it impressive that I’ve managed to stay out of trouble for so long, considering that I’m a middle-aged man and have been a degenerate alcoholic most of my life. Read story

Letter: Quit being a jerk on the road

September 9, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Many of us older adults remember the Victory Gardens of World War II and the oil embargo during the 1970s when the speed limit was lowered to 55 mph. We worked together and fought together for an equitable change. Why is that not happening now? I look forward to a… Read story

Letter: Petitions push bogus claim

September 9, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Today, as I left the Hazel Dell Safeway store, I was asked by a man at a table in front to sign a petition. He stated it was an initiative to eliminate the gas tax and stop “them” from instituting an income tax. I declined and explained that his petition… Read story

Letter: Review citizenship responsibilities

September 9, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

There must be other citizens completely disgusted by the complete hatred for America that putting an indicted criminal on the ballot for the highest office in my country displays. A man so depraved that he had his attorney pay off a sex worker, followed by an attempted rape of a… Read story

Letter: Impact fees don’t make sense

September 9, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

I would expect any traffic impact fees would not be applicable until traffic exceeded that originally anticipated and fees paid when Kmart was built (“Living Hope Church wants Vancouver food cart owners to help pay $45K bill for traffic study,” The Columbian, Aug. 18). Surely neither the church nor a… Read story

Letter: Minority rule leads to frustration

September 9, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Many Americans are frustrated and angry, and I think I know why. The average American sees their country as out of control and they have zero ability to do anything about it. Joe Biden is too old to be a second-term president. Donald Trump is also too old and too… Read story

Letter: Repent before it’s too late

September 9, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

After creating mankind God gave us some suggestions to live by. Abe Lincoln said of our Bible, “… it is the best gift God has given men. … But for it, we could not know right from wrong.” Read story

Letter: Issues to consider

September 8, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Three cheers for the paper printed on Saturday, Sept. 2. The column on public funds being spent to support private schools is one all taxpayers should be aware of (“Greg Jayne: Private schools get public funds”) and the cartoon regarding self-service in places like grocery stores and gas stations was… Read story

Letter: Where is Evergreen school board?

September 8, 2023, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Evergreen Public Schools remain closed due to a work stoppage. This is disruptive and frustrating for students, families and employees. Details regarding the negotiations are limited. Information from the district appears to be focused only on teacher pay while information from teachers suggests that it is about the lack of… Read story
