Tracy Warner | The debate, so hard to watch

I didn’t expect to cringe. I did not think I would reflexively turn my head away from the screen. I like debates. I really do. Logic at 10 paces can be fascinating sport. There wasn’t much of that Monday night. Ranting, baiting, hectoring, torment, ignorance, excuses, lies — these we get with our presidential “debate.”

World Editorial Board | Well done, Camille

We were pleased to see innovative Quincy teacher Camille Jones receive the 2017 state Teacher of the Year award by the Office of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction.

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.

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 ...

Driving into trouble

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

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. 

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. 

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.
