Letters to the Editor
This past week the Washington State House of Representatives members were given a 33 percent daily per diem increase. Their $90 per day per diem was increased to $120. The per diem amounts are used for housing and meals. Each member of the House whose home office is 50 miles or more from the capital receives the per diem. Both representatives from the 31st District qualify.

AMBER-BROOKE – sounds like a microbrew, doesn’t it? It would be appropriate for a bicycle team to be sponsored and named after a cold brew, but such is not the case.
I would like to give thanks to our city manager, staff, administration, mayor, and City Council members for all the hard work they did in the year 2013.
I’d like to offer a rebuttal to a portion of Mr. Keith Matthews’ letter. I thought Mr. Matthews’ letter was well written and was very cordial to the hard-working firefighters.
I am a senior at White River High School and got the chance to watch how technology grew over the past few years. We are able to learn things from current events going on around the world. I am grateful for the technology we have, we use it a lot and it comes in handy. On the other side of that, I would rather go back to using books.
