Letters to the Editor

Write a letter and change a life

A hand-written letter is a powerful tool. Especially when combined with thousands of others. Amnesty International uses this tool to put pressure on governments to shine a light on forgotten prisoners. This year, the Kitsap County chapter of Amnesty International is again joining this effort through its annual Write for Rights event.

Our EMTs are competent and compassionate

Many thanks to the emergency medical technicians from Kitsap County Fire District 18 (Poulsbo Fire), who responded to our home a few times in 2014.

Celebrate our local police and the good they do

Since the news lately has been so full of the story of Ferguson and then, today, about a grand jury in New York deciding not to indict a case there, it seems that law enforcement folks are having a tough time. Likewise, citizens are doubting the people who have been tasked with keeping order. There are race and discrimination issues at play, and I have been appalled at some of what has been shared on social media. But I think that one way through this is to support and value our local officers for the job they do.

Thanks to smart and quick thinking by our police, many businesses were saved from potential losses. My sincerest thanks to our police force.

Child gun protections are reasonable

Discussion of I-594 details is now a moot point, however I found Art Ellison’s rejection comments superficial, and questioning of wealthy funders’ intents demonizing and without basis (“I-594: Some things to think about,” page A15, Oct. 31 Herald).
