    People are overreacting to measles outbreak

    Listen up, folks. Measles is not a killer disease but a rather benign childhood illness. What we are experiencing currently is not an epidemic. One hundred and twenty cases of measles in 17 states so far this year , hardly epidemic status. Some more numbers: The Center for Disease Control reports...

    City wrong to scrap Harbor Patrol program

    I read with dismay a recemt front page article about the demise of the Harbor Patrol. The myopia of this decision is, in my opinion, astonishing and truly sad. But for the expenditure of a paltry $30,000, the City is dismantling what I believe is a “Poster Child” example of what an...

    Deposit fee on beverage containers is needed

    I am with you R.W. Hanson about beverage containers needing a deposit fee. I have seen so much litter along the roadways and parks. Washington used to be a beautiful state.

    Liberalism is a sickness cultivated by Democrats

    Boy, you have to love those Democrats. The labor unions are whining because the military was razing a building and taking food from their members’ mouths. Yet, they vote in the likes of Murray, Cantwell and Heck to represent them. Every one of those politicians support unfettered immigration...

    Give us black history for Black History Month

    This is Black History Month and every year I watch the history channels anxiously waiting to see history of African Americans. All year on the history channel I’m constantly viewing D-Day, Nazis, KKK, and Hitler reruns and the one month I expect something different I’m disappointed...

    New Yorker had details about the Koch brothers

    It was really good to see two letters (Jim Keogh, Feb. 9, and Delwin D. Fandrich, Feb. 10) and the “Boo” in Our View about the Koch brothers. I was alerted to the actions of the Kochs back in 2010, thanks to an article by Jane Mayer in The New Yorker. A few quotes reveal what we are...
