    Election letter: Yes on Kennewick bond

    Kennewick is growing like crazy! Why? It is a great place to live. When families move here they look at a few things. They look at location, home prices and schools. When buying a home, they drive by the potential school for their new home. What does a large number of portables tell that potential...

    Election letter: Yes on Columbia levies

    Letters: Roundabout trouble

    I’d like to meet the bozo who thought those traffic roundabouts were a good idea. Three times now in the last four days, I have come within inches of T-boning people who blow through the yield signs while entering the roundabout at the intersection of 4th Ave. and Kellogg Street. Do they ...

    Letters: Theater needed

    Sadly the Windermere Theatre in the Toyota Center continues to live up to its reputation.
