Tracy Warner | Hunting, and moral judgment

These debates often devolve into arguments about hunting, and hunting ethics, and the morally acceptable ways to slay another animal. I always find this a bit baffling, from both sides.

Sandra Vaughn | GOP health plan will have a devastating rural impact

OROVILLE — We are health care workers and concerned citizens in Okanogan County, in the 4th Congressional District, who are strongly opposed to the new American Health Care Act as it currently stands. We, along with the American Medical Association, American Academy of Family Physicians, American Academy of Pediatricians, American Nurse’s Association, Washington Academy of Family Physicians, Washington State Hospital Association, and the American Association of Retired Persons urge you to ask your representative to vote no on this bill. We ask you to look carefully at this bill’s proposals ...

Tracy Warner | Impeachment is very hard to do

A president of the United States cannot be impeached for lying on Twitter. A president cannot be impeached for having a bad hair style or strange complexation. A president cannot be impeached for being an obnoxious, sexist boor. He cannot be impeached for insulting a visiting head of state or calling reporters fakes. He cannot be impeached even for saying, without evidence, that a former president illegally wiretapped his high-rise. He cannot be impeached for having destructive economic policies or harboring animus toward immigrants. He cannot be impeached for proposing ...

World Editorial Board | A three-way deal good for Pybus

The Pybus Market is still a fledgling enterprise, yet to reach its fourth anniversary. Even so, we cannot imagine Wenatchee without it. It is so embedded in our communal hearts, a focal point of our collective lives, the tangible result of our forward thinkers, that we would go very far to ensure its future.

Art of Community | WVC becoming key player in economic development

Wenatchee Valley College is quietly doing some critical work engaging the community and supporting the economic development of North Central Washington. The college is a critical asset in the valley and to see it quietly and effectively engaging in significant projects is heartening.

Tracy Warner | They said it about the Irish

Our open borders leak like a screen door. The dregs of humanity forced from their wretched homeland overwhelm our filthy cities. They pour in by the thousands. The poor, destitute, uneducated hordes offer themselves up for low wages and drive out the deserving native born. We are infested by criminals. Our jails overflow while justice turns away. Citizenship standards are ridiculously lax. Ballot boxes are stuffed by immigrants just off the boat. Worst of all, their minds are corrupted by our traditional enemies and their primitive religion that commands their ...

Charles Krauthammer | The real world of Obamacare repeal

The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away, but for governments it’s not that easy. Once something is given — say, health insurance coverage to 20 million Americans — you take it away at your peril. This is true for any government benefit, but especially for health care. There’s a reason not one Western democracy with some system of national health care has ever abolished it.
