    Supports continuation of Adult Day Health

    Experience causes us to understand value. We learned the value of the Adult Day Health program (due to close Jan. 1) in Bellingham when my father-in-law was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease four years before he passed away. My mother-in-law did her best to care for him in their home. This...

    Remains unhappy with President Obama

    I recently read the book “Boys in the Boat,” a great story about the UW rowing team that won the 1936 gold in Berlin. An underlining story is that of the propaganda machine of Nazi Germany. Two weeks ago President Obama stated “I don’t have a strategy for ISIL.”...

    Backs VanWerven for legislature

    I spent my toddler years on a small farm in Oklahoma. If someone had told my grandfather he needed a permit to put up a shed, he’d have driven them to the nearest loony bin.

    Says Cherry Point good place for industry

    I strongly encourage elected officials to take a fact-based approach to the Gateway Pacific Terminal, a unique opportunity for Whatcom County. After several years in the construction industry, I understand we need to carefully examine environmental impacts, and base that review on facts, not innuendo...

    Says state judiciary has no right to challenge legislature

    Since when does the Judicial Branch of government have the right to call in and confront the legislative branch of the government? The court’s job is to interpret law. Nothing more. They have no right and no business challenging the Legislature. Maybe the Legislature should cite the judiciary...

    Worried coal terminal would harm environment

    Good for the Aug. 28 letter to the editor writer who believes the number of full-time jobs cited in the Gateway Pacific Terminal permit application as 257, not the 1,250 permanent jobs cited by Craig Cole in his opinion piece Aug. 15. Is this enough jobs to justify what I believe will be the degradation...

    Says CEO compensation also aids shareholders

    The author of the Whatcom View Opinion column headlined “Take time on Labor Day to recognize accomplishments” takes issue with business and quotes an unfortunate statement from the Boeing CEO to demonstrate that all businesses are evil. Just as not all workers are evil, not all business...

    Unhappy with more trains in county

    Maybe it is “good news” for Bellingham that a rail siding through downtown is allegedly not the plan. But even if BNSF is being honest (they haven’t exactly been forthcoming or transparent with details thus far), it still falls utterly short of addressing the many other concerns...

    Says Gateway terminal will harm Whatcom County

    I would like to address two issues connected to the Gateway Pacific Terminal project than I believe are overlooked; the long-term strategic value of America’s natural resources and the foreign exploitation of said resources. I believe that our resources are finite, and I believe that their...
