  • Feb 18, 2016 at 11:00AM

More than 17 percent of Washington’s tobacco retailers illegally sold tobacco to minors in 2015, according to the annual Synar Report. Washington’s 2015 retailer non-compliance level is the highest it’s been since the state began tracking in 1997, when the rate was 19.8 percent. If the rate exceeds 20 percent, the state could lose federal funding for drug, alcohol, and tobacco prevention and treatment.

Black Diamond should lose its outside influence | Letter to the Editor

  • Feb 19, 2016 at 2:00PM

Some points from the last Feb. 4 Black Diamond Council meeting. While having a quorum on a council committee may not be illegal if properly noticed per RCW 42.30, there are still serious conflicts of interest if this were to actually occur in the small town of Black Diamond.

  • Feb 17, 2016 at 2:00PM

My math just didn’t add up, either | Our Corner

  • Feb 17, 2016 at 12:00PM

Last week, Ana Karen wrote an Our Corner about speeding and how little time you save and how much you’re putting yourself at risk when you speed. In the column, she used the math I computed to base her column on. Well, my math was wrong. “Execrable” and “appalling” were the words used by one reader, and I can’t say I disagree. I’m pretty embarrassed, since I even double checked and triple checked my work during the staff meeting in which I did all this. Whoops.

Black Diamond’s new council members are doing all the right things, but their opponents from the election are wasting time and taxpayer money trying to disrupt them.
