Charles Krauthammer | Sanders and Trump: Magic sells

The New Hampshire results have solidified the reigning cliche that the 2016 campaign is an anti-establishment revolt of both the left and the right. Largely overlooked, however, is the role played in setting the national mood by the seven-year legacy of the Obama presidency.

Tracy Warner | Rivers, rights and a lesson

Some days, life’s just one big civics lesson. We find out the hard way how government works, what votes can do and what they cannot. We have rights, to think and speak our minds, to be secure in our property and not be thrown in jail without a just reason. Beyond that things can go gray.

George Will | Break the teeth-whitening monopoly

It is frequently said that, unfortunately, Americans disdain government. It is more usefully said that, unfortunately, they have abundant reasons for doing so. In coming days, the Supreme Court, by deciding to hear a case from Connecticut, can begin limiting a contemptible government abuse that the court’s passive deference to legislatures has encouraged.

Paul Parmley | Money, politics and truth

In a recent Tracy’s Warner’s post, “Their rights are just inconvenient,” the elephant in the room isn’t addressed. It’s not a matter of inconvenience at all that the Supreme Court made what many people believe is an incorrect interpretation. What is horribly inconvenient is the continued downward spiral of our democratic values. We know that Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission opened the door further for corporations to spend unlimited amounts of their own treasury (as opposed to forming a PAC) on broadcast endorsements and this has changed the campaign ...

Tracy Waner | Sanders, Trump test our doubt

Like many people today, I am trying to absorb the possibility of a Donald Trump vs. Bernie Sanders presidential race. There are many primaries and many gaffes to come, but the good voters of New Hampshire would have it this way. We had best consider it.

Common Ground | George, Brown to present at book festival in Seattle

There will be a few folks with ties to North Central Washington on hand when the Search for Meaning Book Festival convenes at Seattle University on Feb. 27, including Colville Tribal Elder Wendell George and former Wenatchee United Methodist Minister Sandy Brown.

Every kid at the PAC

“To him who is given much, much will be required.” This verse resonates with me each day I enter the Numerica Performing Arts Center. Our theater has been given so much by so many.

Tracy Warner | Protectionism, and real people

The United States government offers subsidies for solar power. If you want to install photovoltaic panels on your roof, don’t be put off by the price because the taxpayers will kick back 30 percent in a tax credit. I mean tax incentive.

World Editorial Board | A shining light …

You know what they say about the bright lights of the big city. Well, whatever they say, bright lights are nice for small cities, too. As such, it is good to shed some light on plans to brighten the situation downtown.

World Editorial Board | At Peshastin, a riverside dream

Bill and Jenny Goebel say that profit is not their motive. They are purchasing the long-vacant Peshastin mill site because, they say, they have a dream. They will take this empty land, situated handily in one of the most beautiful spots in the state, and build it into a community and environmental asset.

World Editorial Board | Assist for Alcoans

This is what constitutes good news if your highly valued place of employment is “curtailed.” The U.S. Department of Labor announced that employees who lost their jobs with the closure of the Alcoa Wenatchee Works will be eligible for Trade Adjustment Assistance, providing funds for education and training.
