    Letter: Support Toppenish gun decision

    I stand up and applaud Superintendent John Cerna and the school board of Toppenish School District in their decision to arm staff members — including the superintendent. We get school shootings that hit the headlines and then they fade away in the public’s mind until the next one hits...
