Letter: Use common sense on Halloween

November 8, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

I know it’s after the fact, but in case no one noticed, it was raining hard and dark on Halloween. Read story

Letter: Build a tunnel, not a bridge

November 8, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Look. The overriding purpose of a new Columbia River crossing is to replace an ancient, inadequate, dangerous bridge and connect I-5 South to I-5 North and Highway 14. It’s not to make a trip to downtown Vancouver or Jantzen Beach. Period. Read story

Letter: No easy answers for bridge

November 8, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

I was amused at the opinion article in Friday’s paper describing the challenges surrounding the new bridge design; can’t be too low, can’t be too high, can’t bypass this, can’t bypass that, can’t create traffic bottlenecks, can’t (or must) have tolls, can’t (or must) have light rail . . .… Read story

Letter: Sad memories of perfection

November 8, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Congratulations to the Astros on their no-hit win over the Phillies. It’s only the second no-hitter in World Series history. Read story

Letter: An alternative to Halloween candy

November 8, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Candy at Halloween is a waste of money. The plastic wrappers end up on the street and on people’s lawns, then likely in the ocean where we ingest them after eating fish. Why not give the kids money instead? This way there is less garbage, the kids’ teeth are saved… Read story

Letter: A better path for democracy

November 8, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

I am fortunate to have been born in and raised in this great democracy. I am thankful I am an American. I believe in faith, hope and charity. I also believe in family, a strong family that works through its differences and problems. Read story

Letter: Narcissistic violence is shown

November 7, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

In case you missed it, a small brief appeared in The Columbian on Wednesday, Nov. 2, on Page A6 about a teacher who had been beaten to death by two teenage students unhappy about a bad grade they received in her class. Read story

Letter: Seek diplomacy in Ukraine

November 7, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Americans and the world need economic recovery, diplomacy, and peace. Read story

Letter: Adjust school times to daylight

November 7, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

It is time to turn our clocks back again one hour from daylight saving time to standard time. The main argument that we hear against having year-round daylight saving time is that schoolchildren would need to be out waiting and getting on their school buses in the dark. Read story

Letter: Consider truth about Jan. 6

November 7, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

I’ve just had another conversation about the difference between an insurrection and a riot. No riot took place that stopped a constitutionally mandated electoral process. During any riot that took place nationally, police officers were never killed. Nine people died because of the treasonous insurrection of Jan. 6, 2021. Go… Read story
