    The Gazette, Whitman County Gazette

    ST. JOHN — Thousands of sprint boat race fans braved what felt like four seasons of weather on Saturday, June 15, to watch the high-speed action at Webb's Slough.

    Who could have predicted this? A lot of us. The number of people tapping the taxpayer-provided Paid Family and Medical Leave fund is increasing every year. The paid-leave program, abbreviated PFML, was launched in 2020. It imposes a tax on employers and workers, whether or not the workers paying in ever use the program. The money collected is used to allow some workers taxpayer-paid time off of work if they have a serious health condition, need to care for people or want to bond with a new...

  • Trail Life has anti-woke scouting program

    Family Policy Institute of Washington

    You may have heard the news that the beloved Boy Scouts organization is rebranding for the sake of inclusion. Their new name is “Scouting America,” which allows not only all girls, but the so-called “transgendered” girls who think they are boys. The rebrand includes a concerted effort to recruit more LGBT members in the organization. This shift is a direct result of the dominance of the so-called “woke culture.” Why, you may ask, is this shift necessary? After all, girls who are interested in becoming scouts could just as easily...

  • Route 27: From Here to There, and Vice Versa

    Dana Clemens, Guest Columnist

    GARFIELD -- Buried within the brief section of Route 27 that connects Garfield and Palouse is a mystery: For some reason, the road sign from Garfield lists the distance to Palouse as 8 miles, while the sign from Palouse declares the distance to Garfield as 10 miles. Whatever the distance, the road is a scenic paradise. Beyond the rolling hills encompassing thousands of acres of cultivated land are railroad tracks, the meandering Palouse River, rock formations, trees, barns, and grazing cattle. As if that wasn’t enough, the changing seasons...
