Considering what America is about | Letter to the Editor

  • Jul 14, 2016 at 12:15PM

In a recent letter (July 6, 2016 edition of the Courier-Herald), Jon Buss has offered us an attempted but failed effort at character assassination of Hillary Clinton and collaterally of Barack Obama, focusing on the tragic events in Benghazi, Libya. Over the course of four years, republican members of the House have tried repeatedly to tie the death of Chris Stevens and his staff to some heartless actions of both Clinton and the President. During seven Republican controlled committees, 21 hearings and the expenditure of over $7 million in taxpayer money, the allegations asserted by Buss and cribbed from hot talk radio have been investigated in depth and with the assistance of a republican chosen military expert. Secretary Clinton endured over eleven hours of grilling from the hostile Republican members without wilting.

Pepper, Weber and Morgan – Black Diamond’s new royalty | Letter to the Editor

  • Aug 3, 2016 at 4:00PM

Lest there be any lingering doubts about council members (Pat) Pepper, (Brian) Weber and (Erika) Morgan, they answered it at last Thursday evening's City Council meeting. Unbelievably, they voted no and denied issuance of an event permit for the upcoming Black Diamond Labor Days event. Is it about money? No, the event is funded by community donations. Is there something about this year's planned event that is cause for concern about issuing a permit? No. How many years has our community been doing this? Just 102. Is there something new that has come up? No? Well, what is it?

Fire benefit charge is a fair and sustainable way to fund emergency services | Letter to the Editor

  • Jul 15, 2016 at 2:30PM

Maple Valley Fire and Life Safety is asking voters to change the way tax dollars are collected for emergency services by approving a fire benefit charge. Quality emergency services are important to public safety, strong home values and thriving communities. Just as important is a sustainable and predictable method of financing those services. We believe this proposal is worth approving on the August primary election ballot.
