To the editor — It’s my understanding it sounds likely that the front-runners for Yakima City Council plan to follow and adhere to federal laws. How reassuring to hear that. I think it is no surprise that that is exactly why they are front-runners.
To the editor — I have served on the city of Yakima Planning Commission with Patricia Byers. I have always been impressed with how well prepared and thoughtful she is about issues that come before us. She truly makes the job easier for the rest of us on the commission.

To the editor — Way to go, Yakima School District! Instead of dealing with the underlying problem, you closed Kumler Field to the public, so law-abiding citizens are punished.
To the editor — I recently had a very encouraging meeting with Soneya Lund, who is running for Yakima City Council, District 5. Her background makes her a natural choice. She is fiscally conservative, a small business owner, an involved mom and a candidate who has high hopes for the future o…

To the editor — Our president is not royal. He is not above the law. His history is that of a bully who threats lawsuits to deter those who seek redress for wrongs he commits, lying to hide his wrongdoings and to defame his accusers, filing bankruptcy to avoid paying his creditors and stonew…
To the editor — Many mornings I drive by Planned Parenthood to see extremist anti-choice protesters outside harassing patients as they park and enter the building. These protesters think they are dissuading women from seeking abortions, but what they are really doing is harassing women who a…
To the editor — Donald Trump is our political version of a black hole. He sucks in everything around him. Think of all the people he has drawn into his political orbit who have disappeared; the same people he praised as tremendous, great and wonderful until they said or did something he didn…
