Suggesting that school levies should be cut and replaced by making budget adjustments is an uneducated and naïve statement. There is clearly a lack of understanding about school budgets and levies. Levies pay for a variety of expenses, such as teachers, technology, safety and security, nurses, buses and extra-curricular activities.
Many voters don't see the election just ahead as important; they instead look to the midterms of 2022 or the presidential election of 2024. Those thinking that way are making a big ... possibly huge ... mistake.
In response to the letter, “It’s not extreme to care” by Rob Linebarger on October 17: As related to First Amendment rights as citizens of the United States, we have the free exercise of religion, freedom of speech (in most situations), freedom of press, the freedom of assembly (in most situations), and the right to petition the government for redress of grievances.
I am writing to encourage voters in the CVSD area to join me in writing in Stan Chalich for CVSD School Board Position 5 this November 2nd. Both my parents were students of Stan's, as were both my sister and I. After I took Stan's Civics class I asked to be his teacher's assistant, which I was for 3 semesters.
Is no one else concerned about the $3.5 trillion (that’s 3.5 followed by TWELVE zeros!) social welfare/climate change bill proposed by Mr. Biden and the progressive Democrats? Or the $1.5 TRILLION infrastructure bill, which at least makes some sense in terms of fixing roads, bridges, and rails?
Let me get this straight: Nick Rolovich could have gotten the vaccine - just like every student and state employee at WSU - and remained the Cougars' head football coach. Or refuse to be vaccinated - in the middle of a pandemic - and get fired from a job which paid $3 million annually.
I am writing this letter on behalf of all of the children in Spokane who regularly experience the magic that exists in Underhill Park. Unfortunately, the opinions of children are not taken into consideration when development projects are planned and proposed such as the one currently threatening Underhill Park.
I’m puzzled! How can Pam Orenbaugh expect our votes? One issue is getting kids back to school without masks. Everyone agrees on this goal! Responsible adults accept evidence that vaccines, mask wearing and limiting social gatherings are solid steps towards this goal and also protect elderly, infants and chronically ill. A disturbing trend among Orenbaugh’s supporters is they rant about choice and openly defy these practices. Everyone has freedom to choose, but society is stronger, safer and more cohesive when we choose to benefit communities, not act in selfish ways that have potential to harm.
90-year-old William Shatner's first voyage into space -- and all he wanted to do was look out the window. Being in space in the movies was a lot different. Standing on the bridge of the Enterprise and looking at the viewscreen can’t compare with the real thing.
Cris Kaminskas needs our vote as mayor of Liberty Lake. In the short time that she has served as mayor she has streamlined City Hall operations and brought technology up to date ... in other words, brought a fresh perspective of leadership during COVID.
