More taxes? I say no

In response to the school bond letter in the Auburn Reporter last week, there is one big error.

  • Oct 26th, 2016

Trump plays by the rules

I see the attack and accusations against Mr. Trump in the Oct. 20 Auburn Reporter and wonder yet again just how people know how Mr. Trump paid his employees at his businesses.

There have been no TV ads about voting for U.S. Supreme Court justices.

I would like to respond to Roni Strupat's letter regarding Dave Reichert's support of the Zika funding.

  • Sep 7th, 2016

Blotter is clever, well delivered

I was surprised to read that a fellow reader was dismayed at the police and fire blotter reporting in last week's opinion section. Sometimes, honestly, it's the only reason I open the paper, ha!

  • Sep 7th, 2016

Blotter brings some levity

I do not think that the Auburn Reporter Police Blotter is out of line in any way.

  • Sep 7th, 2016

We deserve cleaner water

Jerry Cornfield recently wrote about the new EPA clean water rules coming to Washington.

  • Sep 7th, 2016

Reichert does right

On Aug. 19, the Reporter published a letter from P. Larson criticizing Congressman Dave Reichert over Zika funding. Unfortunately for P. the facts do not back up that claim.

  • Aug 31st, 2016

Blotters leave the blues

I appreciate your paper, and most of it is well thought out and well written. However, I find the way that your crime and fire reports are written to be callous and insensitive.

  • Aug 31st, 2016

Job well done, WM

As a proud parent of an Auburn Junior City Council member, I am always encouraged and excited to see youth get involved in our community and demonstrate leadership and civic engagement.

A haircut, and a smile

Want to give a big thank you to Robin's Barber Shop, 12 S. Division St., Auburn. Our mother received a complimentary haircut there for her 93rd birthday.

  • Aug 17th, 2016

Enough with Reichert

I hope Congressman Dave Reichert is enjoying his seven-week recess. I bet the people who will contract Zika, who are dealing with lead in their water, and the Supreme Court vacancy, due to his inability to put people and country above party thank him.

  • Aug 17th, 2016

Money well spent?

If Auburn is already more than you imagined, then why are you, the City Council, considering spending $20 million (for downtown improvements)?
