  • Loper decision is a victory for representative democracy

    Paul Guppy, Washington Policy Center

    The Loper family own Loper Bright Enterprises, a modest New England-based fishing business. They pursue the same dream shared by many Americans – to provide their customers with quality service at a fair price while making a good living. Recently, however, the bureaucrats at the National Marine Fisheries Service had other ideas. The agency's budget was tight, so they decided to make the Lopers, along with similar family-owned businesses, pay for a government on-board inspector by charging them $710 a day. When the Lopers protested the...

  • The time for gray wolf management to change is now

    Pam Lewison, Washington Policy Center

    The gray wolf population in Washington state set a reproduction record, growing by an astounding 44 animals in 2023. The state’s wolf population has increased for 15 years in a row and is now at its highest level since it was listed. The question is, what will it take for the state to change its management policy for the predators? Last year we proposed a state delisting of gray wolves in the eastern-most third of Washington state. We also proposed an incremental, local approach to delisting as gray wolves dispersed throughout the state....

  • Endorsing Sandberg

    I have publicly endorsed Roger Sandberg as the next Whitman County Superior Court Judge. People have asked me why I endorse him.

The Superior Court Judge hears mostly serious [felony] and family law cases, but also decides significant cases such as the recent Pac-12...

  • Death, Taxes and Win

    Wind turbines are not real property. They are taxed like personal property. They will depreciate with the passage of time and the taxes will decrease to a residual basis that will be as low as 15 percent of the original value. The initial spike in tax revenue will throw our schools out of State programs and leave them in worse shape than they started out. Who’s going to be left holding the bag? You guessed it, YOU ARE! I’ll bet you didn’t know that. Harvest Hills know. The County Commissioners know. Ask one. Those new jobs? Those...

  • A Palouse tradition returns this weekend

    Dana Clemens, Gazette Correspondent

    Online communication is a modern marvel. It allows near- instant connection to people around the world. Although efficiency has its value, sometimes simpler is better. Take, for example, the humble community bulletin board. It provides an opportunity to intentionally stop, read, and connect with "what's going on" close to home. Having spent most of my life "back east" as an anonymous city dweller, I make it a point to examine these announcements of upcoming events. It was just such a bulletin board that informed me that the city of Palouse's...
