World Editorial Board | A riverfront saved

A landscape so rare and so loved, the Columbia shoreline sand dunes, beach and crags south of the Odabashian Bridge, will be preserved for all time. This will happen through a recent agreement between the Chelan County PUD and Chelan-Douglas Land Trust, greatly enhanced by a $250,000 donation from Cliff and Mary Bates of Quincy.

World Editorial Board | Our law too lax

It is pointless to second-guess Douglas County Prosecutor Steve Clem on his decision not to charge East Wenathcee police officer Kaiti Wilkins in connection with the shooting death of Cameron Ayers Sept. 3. Not only are we not privy to all evidence and reports, Clem’s decision was all but inevitable regardless. Washington law says an officer using deadly force cannot be guilty of a crime if they acted “without malice and with a good belief that such act is justifiable.” Malice is “evil intent,” actions purposely bad. If Clem had ...

World Editorial Board | Don’t send the Dreamers away

No newly elected president makes good on their every campaign promise. Many sincerely pray Donald Trump will be no different, especially in his cruel and impossible vote-winning vow to round up and deport 11 million undocumented aliens. (“They have to go.”)

Wilf Woods | Apple Cup, Cougs and Dogs

I write this before the "war" in the Palouse, where thousands are crowded into Martin Stadium to see the Cougs and the Dogs duke it out.

World Editorial Board | Joy and giving go well together

So begins our season of joy. We are overwhelmed and grateful for our good fortune and the abundance we share. Our blessings are uncountable, our prosperity great and our future star bright. With joy to share, it is only fitting we also make this a season of giving. Through small acts of generosity our comfort and blessings can be shared with our neighbors, so all may know peace and plenty.

Tracy Warner | Let’s all change the subject

Today Americans gather to give thanks, feast, nurture the love of family and friends and devise clever ways to change the subject. Steering a family conversation is an art few master. Steering it away from politics days after a presidential election is nigh to impossible. At best, political burbles can be held to short spurts of agitation and suspicion. Peace is passed with the turkey gravy.

Tracy Warner | Free speech is worth keeping

The First Amendment to the United States Constitution, the sacred foundation of our liberty, which forbids any restriction of religion, speech or press, has been declared by the voters of Washington to be worthy of rewrite. Government, which now has almost no power to limit what we say or write about it, should be empowered eliminate all rights of organizations, we say. It should regulate the means by which we express our opinions of our elected representatives. In other words, the First Amendment will no longer guarantee freedom of speech, ...

World Editorial Board | The Y is strong

 Eric Nelson did not make the Wenatchee Valley YMCA an important institution. It was that already when he took over as chief executive in 1993. He did do what many doubted could be done. Under Nelson’s skilled and creative guidance the Y expanded. Its worth to families, from the bottom to the top of the economy, was magnified. Its breadth of services was greater. Its mission to serve youth is a self-evident success. Its mission to promote healthy living cannot be matched. Its mission to give back to the community ...

George Will | Did academia help elect Trump?

Many undergraduates, their fawn-like eyes wide with astonishment, are wondering: Why didn’t the dean of students prevent the election from disrupting the serenity to which my school has taught me that I am entitled? Campuses create “safe spaces” where students can shelter from discombobulating thoughts and receive spiritual balm for the trauma of microaggressions. Yet the presidential election came without trigger warnings?
