But your original post did imply that you don't read any of the liberal opinions. Why not take them into account? You may learn something.
You seem to be the one with all the anger. I know who the Parent company is and I know who the owners of the Seattle Times backed for President and governor. I guess I really don't know the point of your post. Is it supposed to mean the UB is liberal because of the parent company or conservative because of the parent company? Or something else?
Your comment could be interpreted in a number of ways. Are you referring to the owner of the Seattle Times that backed a Republican candidate for governor, or the backing of Obama for President?
It is so unfortunate that Mr. Webb has to expose himself to another stream of thought. Maybe the U-B could produce two editions. One for Mr. Webb and others that want to remain in their insular, cloistered bubble and one for the rest of us that like to read opposing viewpoints.

Our police forces across the United States are becoming far too militarized. Military equipment and highly trained SWAT teams are expensive and increase pressure to justify the expense by using them, whether needed or not. We are seeing more and more examples of using far too much lethal force to handle situations that do not require it. The MRAP is clearly not needed in this county and I don't know what the reasoning was to get this equipment. It is going to be excessively expensive to maintain .
I guess voters, other than the College Place School District, have some common sense when it comes to approving large school bonds that do not target the most pressing needs.
It is good to see so many people getting decent healthcare, many for the first time. I hope our elected officials can finally come together and support making any improvements to the ACA that may be required.
I didn't see anything about a zoning change causing the problem. It is the opposite. They need a zoning change in order to operate legally. They have been out of compliance ever since they started selling on their property. I do hope they get the zoning changed..
My guess is, if this contract is partially funded by federal money, prevailing wages must be paid no matter if union or not.
The prevailing wage law is very corrupt, but that is for another article.
