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.
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!
I do not think that the Auburn Reporter Police Blotter is out of line in any way.
Jerry Cornfield recently wrote about the new EPA clean water rules coming to Washington.
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.
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.
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.
Regarding Jerry Cornfield's commentary, "Unorthodox Trump to go down swinging in our state" (Aug. 19, Auburn Reporter):
I worked for the City of Auburn for many years, leaving recently to pursue other avenues.
The U.S. alone uses 12 million barrels of oil every year to meet plastic bag demands.
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.
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.
If Auburn is already more than you imagined, then why are you, the City Council, considering spending $20 million (for downtown improvements)?
Black lives matter? Yes, of course. But that issue seems to have inspired the killings of Blue Lives. All lives matter, no matter what color: white, brown, yellow and black
I was saddened to see the front page article (Auburn Reporter, July 29) picturing a massive balloon release to "celebrate" a book launch, recently at the Auburn YMCA.
Please ban plastic bags in Auburn. According to blogspot.com, "200 million tons of plastic bags are being produced in a year. Less than 3.5 percent is recycled.
Recently a negative mailing was done on behalf of Pat Sullivan against Barry Knowles in the 47th District.
A recent editorial I read explained Trump supporters are celebrating "the politics of fear," possibly due to his policies on illegal immigrants and unvetted Muslims.
Once again, we are having problems having our mail delivered. We have lived at this address less than a year, and it has been a regular occurrence that there are problems with the delivery of packages.
On Saturday night (June 18), there were two hours worth of loud, intense, fireworks including mortars, put on by our Muckleshoot Tribe.
This fall I will be facing a real dilemma. I have always supported transportation issues and schools, operation levies and construction bonds.
A letter from one of your readers said that Donald Trump is bad news and Hillary Clinton is the only choice.
Tim Eyman’s editorial, “Taxpayers protected from our initiatives” in the June 24 issue of the Reporter is very interesting but extremely one sided.
Before you drink the Kool-Aid …. I have been watching the Republican Party implode for several years now.
I teach at Green River College and was one of those some of you may have seen picketing at the intersection of Auburn Way and 15th during our recent three-day strike.
Right turns only. The entire area we live in – east of Harvey Road and north of 8th Street – is basically "locked in" unless we want to attempt the death-defying left turn from Pike Street Northeast onto 8th Street.
How long before this Vietnam veteran's name oes on the crying wall,
President Obama had issued an executive order that prohibited companies receiving federal contracts from discriminating against employees based on sexual orientation.
Regarding: "'Limited' Trump spells trouble" (letter to the editor, by Harold B. Valentine, Reporter, May 13):
I had the opportunity to observe the lunch program at Pioneer Elementary School. Because they have a large percentage of children of low-income families, the school was eligible for a grant to provide a well-balanced lunch for students.
Just recently, Burien became the 17th city to approve a resolution calling for a constitutional amendment to remedy the onerous Citizens United decision.
In 2010 Dr. Eileen Ely became the new president of Green River College. She became the first woman to hold the prestigious office at the school. What an honor, or was it?
I may sound like a broken record by now, but I am so sick of the way Auburn is being run.
I have voted in every presidential election since Dwight Eisenhower in 1953.
In response to Mr. W. Riedel’s letter about the risk the Classic Helicopter Corporation (April 29, Auburn Reporter), the company would bring more noise, yes, but the additional risk is negligible.
Everyone is pretty familiar with the rules of a four-way stop, right?
