Young Brian’s liberal lies

Regarding your new Our Corner staff writer Brian Beckley.

Buckley firefighters wouldn’t ask for new station if it wasn’t necessary

Twenty-plus years ago we had just moved into Buckley. I looked out the window and saw the neighbor’s chimney was on fire. Within a minute or two of calling 911, the fire station’s siren went off and this man came flying around the corner on his bicycle, dropped the bike, ran up to the door and identified himself as a member of the fire department. Shortly thereafter, the fire engine came in the driveway, loaded with more firefighters in gear. The problem was quickly taken care of and they went on their way with a wave and a nod.

Reader asks Reichert not to run for re-election

Please permit me to again implore Congressman Reichert not to seek re-election.

Enumclaw Courier columnist got it wrong—healthcare reform is step toward socialism

Regarding your new Our Corner staff writer Brian Beckley. Judging by Brian’s photo he looks like a nice young guy, clean cut, college educated, but his youth also makes him ignorant and foolish in his writings. If we want to read liberal crap we can certainly read the failing Seattle Times or the failed P.I. on line. They failed because they cater to liberal/progressives/socialists which are about 25 percent of the population. People like me prefer the truth and the facts that go along with a subject.
