Letters

Response to a response

It turns out that Mayor Vini Samuel did respond to my Letter to the Editor dated 4/28/16. However, she posted it to her personal Facebook page for only her friends to see. A friend of mine found it and forwarded it to me. Here is her letter:

Bengazi

In thinking about the Bengazi murder of four Americans, I thought about King David, Bathsheba and Uriah. I still don’t understand way the requests for additional security by our Ambassador in August before Sept. 11 was turned down all three times.

Lauding Gordon

Many residents on the lower Wishkah Road have worked diligently, patiently and with firm hope that the Wishkah Road, from milepost 2.2 to 2.7 would have flood mitigation through the Chehalis River Basin Flood Authority.

Part-time commissioners?

I was glad to read in the paper that the county now has enough money to pay some property owner at least $70,000 more than his property was worth. Eminent domain laws were written just to protect taxpayers from this sort of huge over payment.

Your primary vote is important

Please vote in the May 24 presidential primary. It will cost you mere pennies and take mere minutes away from your busy life. Even though individual political parties may use a caucus to choose their candidate, The Revised Code of Washington Chapter 29A.56.010 addresses the reason to have a statewide primary.

Supporting Ayers

Ken Ayers has been purchasing auto parts from my business, Borden’s Auto Parts, for the past three years. In this time I have developed a great working relationship with Ken. He has always treated me honestly, fair and ethically.
 

Cats in need

Throughout this winter HAVA (Harbor Association of Volunteers for Animals) took in many adult and teenage cats that lost their forever home for reasons that had nothing to do with the kitties themselves — whether it was health issues with the owner, owner needing to relocate, elderly owner passed away, etc. These are well-adjusted cats, but moving from a loving home into a shelter can be scary when they don’t understand what’s going on. They struggle to adapt to the shelter, and don’t show well because of that. We are desperately trying to find good homes for these cats. They range in age from one to eight years. We also have a couple of seniors that are more than 10 years old in foster homes.

Zero isn’t sensible

Recently, I attended a meeting in Westport. The Pacific Fishery Management Council — a regional government entity that, in this state, is basically controlled by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife — was seeking public comment on its plans to set salmon-fishing limits for the rest of this year.

Not a Hillary supporter

We all know if you cannot believe what people say, you can have no relationship with them. You never know when they are telling the truth and when you are being lied to. Some people we know prefer to lie when the truth would serve them better. People who lie about inconsequential things are usually not dangerous.
