Letter: Sentencing leads to questions

February 14, 2024, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

There is much to grieve in the article regarding the sentencing of 16-year-old Kikarson Asan for shooting at two teens outside Evergreen High School in October (“16-year-old pleads guilty in Evergreen High School shooting, sentenced to 93 months,” The Columbian, Feb. 2). Read story

Letter: Supporters blind to Trump’s faults

February 13, 2024, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Letter: Sociopaths are in charge

February 13, 2024, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Letter: Don’t forget Trump’s chaos

February 10, 2024, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Letter: Save democracy, reject Trump

February 10, 2024, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Trump wants to be in the spotlight (i.e. president) for several reasons: to placate his ego, to absolve himself from his crimes and to exact revenge on his enemies. It’s not “Let’s make America Great Again,” Trump really wants everyone to believe “Let’s make Trump the greatest.” Read story

Letter: Make good use of Heritage Farm

February 10, 2024, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Thank you to The Columbian for the article published about the 78th Street Heritage Farm (“Plans for Heritage Farm finally taking shape — and selling the property is off the table,” Feb. 1) and to the Clark County Council’s direction to do a sustainability plan that increases community access and… Read story

Letter: Put cap on rent increases

February 10, 2024, 6:00am Letters to the Editor
