November is National Family Caregivers Month | Letter

  • Nov 26, 2014 at 10:40AM

As a Washington State Council on Aging member, I send this letter because November is National Family Caregivers Month. Each year, more of us are caring for a loved one with a chronic condition, disability or simply the frailties of old age.

Post-Initiative-594: More gun restrictions to come | Letter

  • Nov 21, 2014 at 11:20AM

While I voted against Initiative 594, I don’t believe its passage is the end of the world. Policing the provision concerning loaning your gun to another seems problematic. Is there going to be a policeman in every gravel pit and range in the state? What I do see as a downside is that there most likely will be an increase in illegal sales, and there is no doubt in my mind that its passage will have absolutely no effect on crime.

It's time for Congress to use its legitimate powers | Letter

  • Nov 17, 2014 at 5:34PM

American citizens must wonder if Congress will introduce bills to nullify harmful and unconstitutional executive orders.

The minimum wage hurts the economy | Letter

  • Nov 14, 2014 at 1:00PM

I must beg to differ with Steve Hirsh of Bothell who supports the minimum wage (as printed in the Nov. 7 issue of the Reporter). I hate to say it, but belief in the minimum wage is economically illiterate. Sort of like not believing in gravity is scientifically illiterate.

Election signs: Consider our right to ‘freedom from litter’ | Letter

  • Nov 14, 2014 at 1:00PM

Along with the falling leaves of autumn, the fallen yard signs of the 2014 election litter Redmond. Their messages have cluttered our streets since August.

Question of the Day

Do you agree with the St. Louis County grand jury's decision to not indict officer Darren Wilson?
