To the editor — What a sad beginning of complete chaos in our country.
To the editor — There are so many problems plaguing America! As Congress continues to play their partisan baby games NOTHING is getting accomplished.
To the editor — I came upon an article in your paper about our state charging 8 cents for plastic or paper bags unless you were on welfare. Next was the destroying the hydro dams on the Snake River, which our Gov. Jay Inslee is all for. What if the salmon don't come back?
To the editor — I have known Lisa Wallace for a number of years working with her through Juvenile Court and as a volunteer through Voices for Children, a nonprofit organization for abused and neglected children in the foster care system. I've seen Lisa's passion for helping our community fir…
To the editor — Although I am thankful that Dan Newhouse is working on legislation to help mitigate wildfires and support all of us affected by them, I am deeply saddened to see he has taken it as an opportunity for name calling.
To the editor — My reasons to vaccinate -- simple. First, to hopefully help protect the people I love. Second, I know death is inevitable but hopefully it won't be on a ventilator.
To the editor -- In the 1920s, a fringe group led by a young Adolf Hitler promised to restore Germany's standing in the world and Germans' pride in their nation, under the slogan "Work, Freedom, and Bread." They blamed Jews, liberals, Communists, and pacifists for the country's woes. Many pe…
To the editor — We ask you to consider the success of St. Joseph and La Salle, and many other private schools. Some of which did not use masks in the classroom.

To the editor — With the forthcoming Yakima School Board election, we are reminded just how important it is that the district’s policy setters concentrate on education of students to engage successfully in the 21st century while standing on ancient values as they relate to our impressionable…
To the editor — Radiantly ignorant stupidity once again disgraces our public safety and society. The irresponsible naivete of the grossly dangerous left deteriorates and dissolves the truly effective tactics of law enforcement professionals.

To the editor -- This letter is in regard to the Yakima Herald-Republic, Saturday, July 10, Page 2A.
To the editor — In response to why we will not get vaccinated, cannot speak for all, but I can say for myself that I would not have gotten vaccinated under Trump just as I will not get vaccinated under Biden for these reasons.
After nearly 40 years of working and living abroad and seeing the evils of socialism and communism firsthand, I am saddened and even embarrassed to hear one of our political leaders, U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., make a statement that Generation Y has “never seen prosperity.”
I have been thinking about the tenuous state our country is in right now and I am reminded of an exchange I had with a ninth-grade student several years ago.
Walt Disney, who grew up in a small Missouri town, liked to say all his success started with a mouse. Former Starbucks CEO Orin Smith, who ended up serving as a Disney board member, might have said it all started in Chehalis, his Western Washington hometown.
I’ve been hearing a lot of people in the health professions saying that we need at least 70% to 85% of people to get vaccinated in order to acquire immunity against COVID-19. The fact of the matter is it will take nothing less than 100% inoculation to achieve “eradication” of the coronavirus.
As a Yakima-area health care professional, I’m concerned about low local vaccination rates and I’ve wondered what information I could provide to make people more comfortable receiving it. (In the interest of full disclosure, I have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19.) Of the 175,000 adults l…
To the editor -- I have had the privilege of working alongside Lisa Wallace, who is running for City Council District 6.
To the editor — Please join me in voting for our county commissioner, LaDon Linde.
To the editor — One of the most strategic points of Yakima being a charter city is the right to set policies that allow our city and its citizens to evolve and establish a form of protectionism. The passing of an income tax affects every issue we are plagued with.
To the editor — Response to Martha Rickey: Thank you for asking. I am dedicated to answering questions. Together with Citizen Courage I planned a forum titled “A Conversation with Your Candidates.” Search my name on Facebook and you’ll find my campaign page. I regularly post my stance on key…
To the editor — Among the four candidates running for Yakima City Council District 6 position, Lisa Wallace stands out for her depth of experience in the community.
