    Finds future in renewable energy

    The idea in The Bellingham Herald's lead article April 18 that burning more coal is inevitable and we must reconcile ourselves to coal ports being developed on the west coast is hog wash. We should not be buying the message that I believe proponents of these projects would like us all to believe...

    Sees no victory in health care act

    Eight million signed up for the Affordable Care Act. How's that cause for celebration?

    WWU grad backs president's comment

    WWU's President Bruce Sheppard is under pressure for focusing on a student and faculty population that is representative of our country's changing ethnicity. Recently WWU asked the community, "How do we make sure in the future years, 'we are not as white as we are today'?"

    I am extremely disappointed in WWU President Bruce Shepard and his continued insistence that WWU fails as a public state college because there are too many white students on campus.

    Concerned about trade partnership

    I think of myself as conservative, but I agree with the letter in April 16's Bellingham Herald about the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

    Supports Gateway for job creation

    Most of Bellingham area citizens received in the mail the past few days a publication from GatewayPacific Terminal's proposals of the economic opportunity. As I read through their proposals "at-a-glance" in their brochure I stand bewildered by the naysayers in this community. I've concluded that...

    Suggests tax plan for corporations

    Just a though I have been pondering: If corporations are people and have the right to free speech that they now use to pour large sums of money into buying elections, then should they also not have the responsibility to pay income taxes under the same rules and rates as individuals? It seems to ...
