Chime In: Quarantine Changes

We want to hear from you. There’s no doubt that things have changed over the last few months. The United States has been turned a bit upside down by the impacts of a pandemic. What changes do you think and/or want to stay afterward?

We’ve lost loved ones, been reminded that healthcare workers are on the front lines of our safety every day, and learned exactly what we all individually consider to be essential. 

The question now: what changes will be maintained? Will local restaurants continue to offer takeout and delivery? Will many employees continue to work from home? Will there be a surge in new homeschool and homelink families this fall?

I know many who can’t wait to rejoin society as we used to know it: embrace a loved one, share conversation that doesn’t require a phone or internet connection, or simply go anywhere in public without a shadow of fear hanging over us. 

How have things changed for you? Will the changes you have made during quarantine turn into long term habits?

Letter To Editor – Jesus wasn’t a Republican. Nor was he a Democrat.

Unfortunately, the system in which we live, plays to only two parties, that hold a strangle hold on power. As such what is one then to assume? That my identity in Christ is dependent upon who I vote for or don’t vote for? Shall I say then that it is my Christian Duty to vote for Biden or Trump? Neither statement is valid. The shame is a false equivalence within political and false religious dogma.

Letter To Editor – A Touch Of Class In The Northeast A

On Thursday, February 1″ the boys’ and girls’ basketball teams from Riverside traveled to Newport for the final regular-season games against the Grizzlies. Both girls’ teams experienced injuries to key players during the season and had endured humiliating lopsided losses. In the first meeting, Riverside had won by 30. On that morning, as my granddaughter, who plays for Riverside, and I did our morning chores on the farm, I said to her “Lets’ show a little class tonight.” She was way ahead of me and commented…

Emergency Powers – Letter To Editor

It has been two years since the Covid lockdowns and since Governor Jay Inslee was granted emergency powers. This is much too long for this much power to be given to one man. In the beginning there was much ignorance and little knowledge about Covid. The argument was made that decisions needed to be made quickly. That may have seemed to make sense then, but not now.
