Letter: Many issues more urgent than Richland's concrete letters

January 30, 2014 

Although the recently removed letters at Fran Rish stadium mean a lot to fellow Bombers, there are many issues to worry about; much of them are more urgent, and worth the money and time spent.

Bullying is widespread, jobs are in high demand, the minimum wage might rise, there are homeless people living out in below-freezing temperatures, and the cost of a college education continues to rise.

That list of only a few of the more global issues that will directly affect billions of people, not just the population of Richland, goes to show that there are more pressing issues to be addressed than the loss of two concrete letters at a stadium.
