    Letter: Newhouse is losing hispanic voter confidence

    Freshman Congressman Dan Newhouse voted this past week to condition funding for the Department of Homeland Security on a repeal of the president’s executive authority aimed at breaking the political stalemate on immigration reform. This is disappointing and a big misstep. Newhouse defended...

    Letters: Congress vs. Obama

    It’s very good news to see that the new Congress can both read and follow the Constitution, unlike our rouge President Obama, who thinks he can go around Congress and do anything he wants. Good for the Congress for starting the process of overturning Obama’s illegal executive order...

    Letters: Bicycling roundabout

    As a recreational bicycle rider, I find myself riding west to east through the Steptoe Roundabout on Columbia Trail frequently. One has to navigate the roundabout in order to access the bicycle path near the Richland Wye. Riding through the roundabout during rush hour traffic is especially dangerous...
