Letter: Beware of I-594

France had gun registration. World War II arrived. Germany invaded France, obtained the registration lists, stormed through the country picking up arms, if denied ownership, or refused they were executed on the spot.

Letter: Vote for Yacklin

My wife and I have known Kim Yacklin for over 20 years. She is exactly what we need in the Auditor's Office, someone who has a high level of understanding of the operations of the county and someone who has the integrity, professionalism and intelligence to run a department.

Letter: Slap on the hand for sloppy French

On Cooper Postcard from Paris (Sequim Gazette, Oct. 15)

Letter: Personal attacks on Porter unwarranted

As with most folks at this point in an election campaign, I just want it to end. I’m tired of reading and hearing the charges and countercharges, the nasty Letters to the Editor and the bitter, personal attacks some candidates launch against their opponents. Some of these aspiring officeholders need to learn that there really is a difference between one’s “opponent” and an “enemy.”

  • Oct 29th, 2014

Letter: Support Porter

It is always interesting to watch disparate politicians at the end of their failed campaigns. Almost instinctively, they dive head-first into the gutter and start making personal attacks throwing mud. Such is the case with Cathy Marshall. She has made numerous false accusations about Judge (Rick) Porter. Wisely, Judge Porter has not reciprocated; nor will I.

  • Oct 29th, 2014

Letter: Think Positive

The local population, especially in Sequim, is intelligent, well-educated, mostly financially comfortable and old enough to appreciate the prosperity that used to be.

  • Oct 29th, 2014

Letter: Perhaps operator error

I want to comment on the recent tragic sinking of a 67-foot vessel off the Dungeness Point (Dungeness Spit).

  • Oct 29th, 2014

Letter: Guaranteed: Less pain, more energy, better balance

Serious about improving memory, energy, balance, strength, flexibility = quality of life? Start today by focusing on your posture/core alignment all day long when walking, sitting, standing, in the kitchen, yard or hobby spot. Everyone can improve somewhat!

Letter: Stop poaching

My letter to the poachers on Chicken Coop Road: How can our community virtually ignore the poachers’ crimes? It is time to report poachers’ crimes against wildlife, the community and Washington state.

  • Oct 29th, 2014

Letter: Support Marshall for judge

Cathy Marshall has spent her career — and her life — helping others. She has worked with the homeless, she has worked to beautify the communities in which she lives; she even helped start a free legal clinic in Port Angeles.

Letter: Riggs is qualified choice

I have seen several letters in the paper touting the virtues of both candidates for county auditor. Both are said to be good workers, good administrators, honest, kind and all that, which I don’t doubt. Since this is not a partisan race for the office, political opinions do not enter in here.

  • Oct 22nd, 2014

Letter: Support Winborn

Mary Ellen Winborn is the best candidate for director of the Department of Community Development (DCD).

  • Oct 22nd, 2014

Letter: Support Bell for commission

I recommend the election of Ron Bell to the Clallam County Charter Review Commission, District 1, in the upcoming general election.

  • Oct 22nd, 2014

Letter: Council afraid of transparency

Why are Mr. (Roger) Fight and the City Council afraid of transparency and individual rights?

  • Oct 22nd, 2014

Letter: Of fear and freedom

In his letter to the editor (“Charter Review Commission choices important,” Letters to the Editor, Sequim Gazette, Oct. 15, page A-12), Roger Fight could have been “forthcoming” by stating his chairmanship of the Clallam County Democrat Party.

  • Oct 22nd, 2014

Letter: Another vote for Yacklin

I am writing this letter because I want citizens to know that the Clallam County Auditor’s race is also an important race and we need to make sure we get someone in there that will bring a fresh perspective to how the office is run.

  • Oct 22nd, 2014

Letter: Vote for Payne

I urge you to vote for William Payne for Clallam County Prosecuting Attorney.

  • Oct 22nd, 2014

Letter: Elect Kim Yacklin

We need a change in the County Auditor’s Office leadership. You may have done business with Karen Shewbert who owned the Sequim Vehicle and Vessel Licensing office for a number of years. On May 15, 2012, County Auditor Patty Rosand suddenly closed Karen’s office without notice and left us without a Sequim licensing facility until November 2012.

  • Oct 22nd, 2014

Support Riggs for auditor

After reading the article in the Peninsula Daily News about the two candidates for Clallam County Auditor, I was struck by Kim Yacklin’s statement: ”I can learn those tasks if I need to,” in reference to the diverse job duties under the Auditor’s position.

  • Oct 15th, 2014

Bruch is best representative

Sissi Bruch is by far the best candidate to represent both District 3 and the county as a whole.

  • Oct 15th, 2014

Roark Miller flip flops, vote for Winborn

The Clallam County Department of Community Development (DCD) is charged with advising the Clallam County commissioners on matters of land use.

  • Oct 15th, 2014

A vote for Yacklin

I would like to recommend Kim Yacklin for Clallam County Auditor. The public and I have had time in the past few months to analyze the goals and objectives of the various candidates in the upcoming elections.

  • Oct 15th, 2014

For Sissi Bruch

We need new leadership for our area and Sissi Bruch is the ideal candidate to provide that leadership.

  • Oct 15th, 2014

Charter Review choices important

When you look at the long list of candidates for Charter Review Commission on your ballot you may be able to pick out one or two that you have heard of and figure it wasn’t from the police blotter.

  • Oct 16th, 2014

Bruch has needed experience

Sissi Bruch’s willingness to serve as Clallam County commissioner gives us an exceptional opportunity for outstanding leadership.

  • Oct 8th, 2014

Porter earns my vote

For years (usually at election time) certain people around here express misgivings and anger about the highly successful Pay-Or-Appear Program in Judge Rick Porter’s District Court I.

  • Oct 8th, 2014

Bruch will represent all of Clallam County

I attended three Sissi Bruch-William Peach forums for their bid for County Commissioner.

  • Oct 8th, 2014

Council makes wise choice

We have the Sequim City Council to thank for their unanimous vote to reject the Freedom Foundation’s Prop. 1 and Prop. 2, measures aimed at stripping our city’s employees of union protection.

  • Oct 8th, 2014

Kudos to Sequim talent

Saturday night (Sept. 20) my husband and I attended a musical production for our Sequim community in the high school auditorium. It was an outstanding production and a very enjoyable evening out.

Education doesn’t add up

Principal reasons the United States public education math ranking is 27th among other industrial nations: Public schools have low academic standards for grade level achievements compared with other nations, as exemplified when foreign students relocate to the United States they perform two or three grade levels higher than American students.

  • Oct 1st, 2014

Abuse of power?

“Bullies,” “minions of greed,” “pick your pocket,” the Left uses the language of oppression to demonize their freedom-loving opponents and hide an abuse of power by the Sequim City Council.

  • Oct 1st, 2014

Support Riggs for auditor

I have seen all those signs out there for candidates. Just because some have the money to spend on lots of them, it doesn’t mean they are most qualified. Before you vote, take the time to get to know the candidate.

  • Oct 1st, 2014

Turn camera back on stranger photographers

I just read “Strangers photographing kids: creepy.” (Letters to the Editor, Sequim Gazette, Sept. 17). The letter stated problems in public areas such as playfields, parks and also a store.

  • Oct 1st, 2014

Who’s been working on the railroad?

Unlike Tim Wheeler in last week’s Gazette (Letters to the Editor, “A prop point clarified,” page A-9), I know Propositions 1 and 2 are not “anti-union” but pro-taxpayer and pro-employee.

  • Sep 24th, 2014

Writer stereotypes ‘old men’

I’m writing in response to the parent whose letter was published Sept. 17 (Sequim Gazette, “Strangers photographing kids: creepy,” Letters to the Editor).

  • Sep 24th, 2014

City should step up for tennis courts

Many high schools across America like Sequim High School are very good about letting the public use their courts after school, on weekends, holidays and vacations. This is all good and well when schools have funding to maintain courts and there are public courts in the area.
