World Editorial Board | Well done, Camille

World Editorial Board | Lester property shows collaboration

For years, the Lester family of Wenatchee allowed community members to access the foothills trail system from property they own off of Sage Hills Drive. They put up a sign that welcomed trail users, making them aware that they were using private property.

Driving into trouble

Man has made a big mistake in making driverless cars, when all they are doing right now is recalling cars.

Native American leader’s story is fascinating

I am continually reminded of the important role our Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center plays in building helping connecting us to the past as a way of deepening our understanding and appreciation for our heritage. 

Hawkins deserves support

Brad Hawkins is one of the most genuine, honest, and hard-working individuals that I have ever met. He is self-disciplined and driven to achieve the high goals that he has set for himself. We should take comfort sending Brad to Olympia as our State Senator, knowing he will exercise the same strong work ethic he exemplified in his experience on the Eastmont School Board and as our 12th Legislative District Representative. Brad has always served with integrity and distinction, and we can expect the same from him as our next State Senator. 

What an experience

I had never been to Wenatchee and a little game of football brought our family there. We arrived at the Lincoln Rock campground and the boys were extremely excited. As they hit the field you could feel the excitement through the air. The marching band, the cheer leaders and the patriotism is something our young men had never seen and I am sure they will talk about it forever. The games were incredible. There was no rivalry, only a crowd of fun. The Wenatchee boys play a dignified, respectful game ...

Eugene Robinson | Two types of gun laws: one for blacks and one for whites

WASHINGTON — If you are a black man in America, exercising your constitutional right to keep and bear arms can be fatal. You might think the National Rifle Association and its amen chorus would be outraged, but apparently they believe Second Amendment rights are for whites only.

George Will | Deepen Charleston’s port, and the big ships will come

CHARLESTON, S.C. — Technology has put powerful computers in billions of pockets, but an invention much more mundane than the smartphone — the shipping container: a rectangular steel box — also has changed the world. Because of it, two of today’s preoccupations — infrastructure and globalization — are connected by a chain of events that began more than 60 years ago and today runs through Congress and to the wharves of Charleston’s booming port.

Cal Fitzsimmons | Mail voting has changed our coverage

Washington state has been one of the leaders in vote-by-mail elections and by almost all accounts it has been a huge success. While frustrated voters in other states stand in long lines on one day to cast their ballots, we vote at our leisure and either mail it back or put it in a drop box by election day. Simple.
