The next episode in a political drama sparked by President Donald Trump’s election was take place in a Tacoma office building Friday.
Today I got a notice in the mailbox informing me my mailbox was out of compliance because it was 33 inches from the ground to the bottom of the mailbox (it is supposed to be at least 45 inches).
Barronelle Stutzman’s “relationship with Jesus Christ” doesn’t give her the freedom to turn down business – even if that business violates her personal beliefs. Or so said a Benton County Superior Court judge in his decision against her in 2013.
The last few weeks have been depressing with the direction our country is moving. However, we read a letter to the editor (Courier-Herald, Feb. 8) from Dr. David Schumer from Auburn.
This may surprise you but one thing legislative leaders and the governor agree on is that new taxes are needed to help cover the state’s unpaid tab for public schools.
There was an irony in recent letters to the editor (Feb. 8) that was not lost on me.

The target is the 1 percent cap on property tax hikes which voters embraced and legislators etched into law a decade ago in spite of concerns it would weaken a historic pillar of financing that cities, counties and the state rely upon.
During the late 1940s and 1950s, Americans feared nuclear war.
Change is in the air. President Trump is in the midst of seeking to fulfill his campaign promises as quickly as possible. His supporters are hopeful that our new president will shake up Washington and restore greatness to America.
In his first week, President Donald Trump is effecting quite a bit of change in the climate and landscape of Washington politics.
The reinstating and revoking of the “Global Gag Rule” on abortion can probably be considered an American tradition, having been reinstated and revoked a total of six times since it first came about in 1984.
How important is trust to you? It is very important to me. At one point in my life, I discovered that a person I trusted completely had lied to me. Once trust is lost, it is very difficult to restore.
As of today, Wednesday, there are only 90-plus days remaining in the regular session, even less when you figure lawmakers won’t work many weekends.
