The citizens of Washington have spoken so this session of the legislature will begin the transfer of precious tax dollars from public education to charter schools. Never mind that charter schools’ student achievements are similar to public schools. That is of minor importance. The important item is easy money.
Letters to the Editor
I am writing this letter to encourage Camas residents to show their support for the upcoming Camas School District replacement levies on Feb. 12. As a junior at UC Berkeley I have been living away from Camas for almost three years now. In those three years I have experienced many new things and met many new people, but there is one thing that continually surprises me.
Help Camas schools continue tradition My family and I have been Camas residents for over 15 years. We also have children who attend both Camas High School and Skyridge Middle School.
Proud of WHS students I attended the Washougal High School Holiday Bazaar Nov. 17. It was great to see the different student groups participating. From students manning the Stuff the Bus table to the choir's wonderful music to the Interact Club's goodie table with the proceeds going to Uganda to even middle school students raising money for their basketball team. It was a great time shopping.
Speak up at coal hearings As you know, the forecast is to have 24 coal trains rumble through Gorge communities. These slow moving trains are each 1.5 miles long. They will degrade life for a million people all along the route from Montana to Camas and from Camas to the proposed terminal near Bellingham.
Vote ‘yes’ on Referendum 74 As a photographer’s wife, my husband and I have helped out at more weddings than we can count. We have worked all over the state of Washington while photographing couples both gay and straight.
Support Adrian Cortes As Olympia becomes more partisan, now more than ever we need real problem solvers that can work with everyone.
Vick is a leader Over the course of the last decade I have had the pleasure of watching Brandon Vick grow into a man of good character and an exemplary leader.
Where is the justice? Our Constitution states “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice,…” Yes, “to establish Justice” is stated in our Constitution. Where is “justice” in a tax code that allows millionaires and corporations to pay a smaller percentage of federal income taxes than our working citizens?
Support Shehorn for state legislature In recent months, I have had the opportunity to become acquainted with David Shehorn, who is running for the State Legislature District 18 House seat.
