To the editor -- I am wondering if all these people that are resisting getting the vaccine have gotten a all their other vaccines in the past. If they did, then what's their problem about getting this one?

To the editor -- Regarding the enlightening article in the Oct. 18 edition of the Yakima Herald, "Cities seek to loosen rules on spending federal pandemic aid ..."
To the editor -- The recent YHR article regarding the removal of Nelson Dam on the Naches River was informative. However, the dam is not as old as indicated in the story (1920s).
To the editor -- Shame on Dan Newhouse. In a newsletter he sent on Oct. 14, he brags about how he is "working" on his farm and has a "fantastic" crop. While up and down this district so many farmers have been forced to leave their crops unharvested because of shortage of help.

To the editor -- Washington lost a lot of good people last Monday. Their spirit is the reason America had a Bunker Hill and Alamo and raising of the flag on Mount Suribachi. And it was about power, not health.
To the editor -- I have been asked, "You are a registered Republican, why do you support Lisa Wallace?" I support Lisa Wallace because I believe in Lisa Wallace!
To the editor -- Your Wednesday editorial criticizing two state employees for refusing the COVID-19 vaccine is flawed on several points. The "rules" the employees broke were imposed after they were employed, and they never agreed to them. In fact, the public didn’t agree to them; they were i…
