Big government is bad; big business is worse | Rich Elfers

  • Jul 17, 2015 at 3:00PM

It’s wrong to blame Big Business for the nation’s economic ills. Big Government invasively meddles into the lives of Americans with too many rules and regulations limiting people’s freedom. The 2008 Great Recession was caused by the government, not Wall Street. The above statements are the gist of what I have been hearing from some members of the community. According to them, I give government a pass on accountability and unjustifiably blame business for the ills of society.

  • Jul 18, 2015 at 10:00AM

Rich Elfers nailed the I.S. problem by citing the historical facts about the World War 1-created nation states. In “Future Jihad,” Walid Phares warned us about the rise of a caliphate and Osama skillfully snookered the U.S. into his hands with the 9/11 attacks. (The first World Trade Towers attack didn’t “take” but now we’re in our longest war ever with the “GWOT.”)

Sunday bowling and time with Dad | In The Day

  • Jul 18, 2015 at 11:00AM

Before The Summit on Enumclaw’s Roosevelt Avenue was a church, it was a bowling alley. Back in 1980-something when I was in afternoon kindergarten at Kibler Elementary, I frequented this bowling alley once a week with my dad. There was some sort of dairy farmer league in the mornings. So, after the chores were done and before the afternoon milking started, the Plateau dairymen gathered for some friendly competition.

Turn the key of confession and engines will rev | Church Corner

  • Jul 18, 2015 at 12:00PM

I have few confessions to make. First, I need to confess that I’ve messed up. I’m aiming for the middle of the road here, a practical confession. By “middle of the road,” I mean that I want to avoid the extreme of excusing myself (Hey, I only acted on natural impulses, right?), while also avoiding the other extreme of burying myself in self-condemnation (a.k.a. “I’ll never be able to get anything right!”). It’s striking how quickly these childish responses can step in to divert my path away from effective confession.

  • Jan 14, 2016 at 12:00PM

hanks to the Affordable Care Act, everyone has to have health insurance or there will be a penalty. In 2014, I qualified for free health insurance so I didn’t have to pick a plan; it was done for me, thanks to the nice lady on the other end of the phone. It was a different story in 2015.

Inappropriate use of taps during musical | Letter to the Editor

My mother came to Washington for a pre-holiday visit. She was the kind of mom who decorated the entire house at Christmas. Putting ornaments on the tree, singing carols, making and decorating sugar cookies are a few of things she did with us when we were children that made this time of year magical for us. Four years ago, our holidays took a different spin.

Recently one of my courses at Green River College was dropped due to lack of enrollment. I wasn’t happy about it but there was nothing I could do. That left me with a choice: to mourn the loss, or to appreciate that I had enjoyed the benefit for five years. I chose to appreciate what I had.
