    Unhappy with nuclear deal with Iran

    I believe the United States is engaged in a sort of nuclear edging with Iran. Our President insists the Iranians will ride the edge of nuclear proliferation for 10 to 13 years before finally achieving a sustainable nuclear weapons system.

    Wants city to ensure water smells OK

    I just received the City of Bellingham Water Quality Report 2014. It is attractively designed, informative and, in its way, educational. Above all, it reassures the water drinking population of the city: “Our water is safe to consume.” Unfortunately, last summer, the water had a bad...

    Finds no sense in Clinton candidacy

    We as a nation, under God, hope its citizens recognize and carefully glean our political closet of potential presidential candidates. To select and elect the right person should be based on their integrity, their ethics and their moral compass. It is often difficult to lean towards one candidate...

    Suggests licensing bicycle riders

    Students in our school districts are scheduled to take the so-called Smarter Balanced Assessments in grades 3-8, 10 and 11 English and math soon, though we have not been told exactly when. I encourage parents to watch the coverage of the recent open Washington State Senate hearing/panel on the Common...

    Unhappy with protest over dress code

    I believe the world is on fire: Iran will get the bomb, Israel may be annihilated, Hillary refuses to show her e-mail, the planet is being ruined, terrorists crucify, burn, torture and kill. Right here in Bellingham, the Bornemann family has been beset by tragedy. Yet during Easter Week, The Bellingham...

    Thanks Samaritan for aiding dog

    From my dog: My name is Bandit and I am a 12-year-old chihuahua who lives with my owner, my litter mate and our adopted sister. On April 4, while our owner was away, someone trespassed on our property and opened the gate to our fenced back yard. Freedom was exciting and exhilarating. But when my...
