Letter: Councilors unfit to serve

June 4, 2021, 6:00am Letters to Editor

I was shocked and appalled at reading this morning, “Quiring O’Brien: Make it harder to vaccinate children” (The Columbian, May 27). Read story

Letter: Stop politicizing the pandemic

June 4, 2021, 6:00am Letters to Editor

It is amazing to see what this pandemic has exposed in our society: Politicizing medical issues like mask-wearing, and advocating against giving vaccine shots to students at their schools. Read story

Letter: Appreciate our veterans

June 3, 2021, 6:00am Letters to Editor

Letter: Government controls by fear

Are you or are you not protected? The vaccinated need an answer to this question.
