Letter: How could this happen?

An Oregon jury recently acquitted seven anti-government activists of the heavily armed seizure of public lands and destruction of public property at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. This so-called sagebrush rebellion was led by two sons of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, who has overgrazed public land and not paid his grazing fees for years.

Letter: Trump demonstrates lack of sensitivity and respect

Most Americans are fed up with partisan politics from both parties and tea party obstructionism, both of which have occurred at taxpayer expense. The result of this voter frustration is President-elect Donald Trump, who has demonstrated a lack of sensitivity and a lack of respect for just about everyone unless they are white, male and Christian.

Letter: Name new Richland middle school after C.J. Mitchell

Regarding the new middle school naming in Richland (“Libby Middle School opening doors in August,” TCH, Nov. 23). All of my children went to Richland schools in the 1980s and 90s. So we are not outsiders, as some call non-Tri-Citians. I have a suggestion, naming this for a man who dedicated his life to the betterment of Richland — Mr. C.J. Mitchell.

Letter: America is battling racism

Racism has been a major issue in America since the 1900s. Why should people be judged for the way their skin is? It isn’t their fault that they’re black or white. All people are given unalienable rights when they are born. Why can’t they be treated equally? What made it so black people aren’t equal to white people? There is no legitimate reason for this.

Letter: What are you grateful for?

It’s easy to be grateful when things are going good in our lives. But what about when the opposite occurs. What happens when one is going through the toughest storm they have encountered? Do we tend to look at the negative, and become incapable of finding anything to be grateful for? As I am walking through my most difficult storm, I was encouraged to find things to be grateful for and write them down. I decided I would follow their counsel.
