LETTER: What’s happened to the GOP?

Are there still conservative values in the GOP? I would like to think and hope so; but, what I have witnessed since entering the District 14 Legislative race this April along with Dennis Fred and Glen Baltrusch, makes me wonder. The once respectable conservative party that I grew up with seems ...

Letter: Where was Stenehjem as Attorney General?

Normally, I would applaud a candidate for coming out in favor of criminal justice reform-our state is in dire need of it. We have skyrocketing incarceration rates, enormous drug problems, and have a system where a 20-year old college student caught selling $80 of marijuana can be threatened ...

Letter: Giving credit where credit is due

Far too many elected officials serve for their own self interests. Motivations to retain elective office range from the desire to wield power by imposing rules, regulations and taxes; stroking one's pride to reaping the rewards of health benefits, per diem payment and travel. This reality ...

Letter: Pierce County should rally again

Fellow citizens of Pierce County:Some weeks ago Pierce County residents were faced with the "borehole" experiment. It was very impressive to the quick preparedness and aptness to communicate the case against allowing it. I was proud to observe our county residents.With that being said, might I ...
