Phil Rasmussen | Our state is failing community and technical colleges

It’s no secret that the 34 community and technical colleges (CTC’s) in Washington, including our own Wenatchee Valley College, serve more than 386,000 students with education and training to either successfully transfer or to meet the skilled worker needs of employers in our region.

Two-thirds of Americans think the country is on the wrong track. Yet after nearly two terms of Barack Obama’s corrosively unsuccessful liberalism — both parties have decisively moved left.

George Will: A cold can of ‘America’

Because advertising is a barometer that often accurately measures America’s psychological atmosphere, attention must be paid to this: From May 23 through the presidential election, Budweiser beer will bear a different name. Eager to do its bit to make America great again, the brewer will replace the name “Budweiser” with “America” on its 12-ounce bottles and cans.
