  • Our duty

    Gordon Forgey, Publisher|May 30, 2019

    Memorial Day has passed. It is the nation’s time to reflect on those we have lost. The focus of the holiday is on the many who serve this country in time of conflict, particularly those who died in combat. It also honors those who stood ready to protect the the country in times of peace. Memorial Day is not only for those missing, but for those in conflict now and those who make up the rest of the military and are ready to step up when the call comes. America has a long history of combat. The country was born in war and has been engaged in c...

  • Too Late for Censorship

    Bob Franken, Syndicated Columnist|May 30, 2019

    They say that even a broken clock is right twice a day. Like that broken clock, when President Donald Trump complained recently about social media censorship, he was onto something. We should be very concerned when Facebook executives decide to kick somebody off their social media site just because the offender is anti-social. Actually, the term they use is "dangerous individuals," and arguably what these expelled guys regularly spew out is dangerously crazy. Alex Jones was given the boot, along with removal of links to his Infowars site,...

  • Has Trump Driven Democrats Sane?

    Rich Lowry, Syndicated Columnist|May 30, 2019

    The Joe Biden polling surge has raised the frightful specter of Democratic rationality. What if Donald Trump hasn't driven Democrats insane, sending them into a spiral of self-defeating radicalism, but instead made them shockingly pragmatic? Biden's early strength suggests it may be the latter, that the reaction to Trump is so intense that it has crossed some sort of event horizon from fevered fantasy of his leaving office early via resignation or impeachment to a cold-eyed, win-at-any-cost practicality. If this is true, one of the exogenous...

  • Could Seattle Put on a World's Fair Today?

    Don C. Brunell, Syndicated Columnist|May 30, 2019

    On April 21, 1962, the Seattle World’s Fair opened. The “Century 21 Exhibition” ran for six months, drew 11 million visitors, turned a profit and left the Northwest with a wonderful Seattle Center. Well over a half century later, many of the fair’s landmarks remain and the Center’s 73-acres is a gathering place for people from all walks of life. It is Seattle’s Central Park. The Space Needle has become Seattle’s landmark. Conceived in an architect’s notebook, it was constructed in eight months...

  • Climate Change

    Frank Watson, Gazette Columnist|May 30, 2019

    It was a pretty normal day at my house for old retirees. I was trying to decide whether to go to bed early or watch another nighttime drama series. Not wanting to rush a big decision, I closed one eye and leaned back in my recliner. Thus, I was only half watching the show as they portrayed an island nation being washed away due to global warming. I came fully awake when the show indicated America was solely responsible for the demise of this small, fictional principality. I ignored the rest of the show and focused on what I knew and had heard a...

  • Alley topic returns to Colfax council

    May 30, 2019

    Discussion of alley access resumed at the May 20 Colfax city council session after the topic surfaced at the prior council session. Fire Administrator Tim Tingley reported the city’s fire truck can negotiate the alleys on the west side of Main, although clearance is very tight when a delivery truck is parked along the back of the food pantry building. Tingley added that, as a rule, fire crews check out the kind of fire response needed on an alarm and try to avoid driving a fire engine into the alley. He added because of the constricted s...

    May 30, 2019

    The Rev. Bob Ingalls in his address Monday at the Colfax Memorial Day observance at the cemetery noted the big addition to the grounds, which was posting of flags on the graves of known veterans buried at the cemetery, was the end result of a mistake.
