Disagrees with take on government, business | Letter to the Editor

  • Jul 30, 2015 at 12:00PM

I read with almost amusement the writings of Richard Elfers and his analysis of big government vs. big business. If Mr. Elfers would do us all the favor of developing a basic understanding of economics, we would all be better served. Perhaps his first lesson should be the teachings of Adam Smith and a reading of the “Wealth of Nations.”

Expanding trail would better serve Tait legacy | Letter to the Editor

  • Jul 23, 2015 at 11:00AM

I read the story (Courier-Herald, July 7) about Dr. Tait and his legacy, which is the Foothills Trail. I think it is admirable that the group wants to honor him; the trail is a fantastic way to get exercise and spend some time in nature.

Enumclaw will not experience a flood of new houses | Letter to the Editor

  • Jul 18, 2015 at 4:00PM

On June 23, 2015, there was an article in The Courier-Herald indicating that approximately 400 homes were approved to be built in Enumclaw. The recent Courier-Herald article could be misunderstood by our community to believe that there is immediate major growth coming to Enumclaw in the near future.

Disappointed that papers haven’t joined in fight | Letter to the Editor

  • 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.”)

Questions surround debate over farm land | Letter to the Editor

  • Jul 16, 2015 at 12:00PM

Some thoughts after reading the City Council workshop meeting notes of May 2, 2015. Notes regarding the Thomas farm property located next to state Route 410 on the outskirts of Enumclaw. There was another meeting on July 6 regarding this same purpose. People could attend the meeting but there was no opportunity to comment, hence this letter to the editor.
