Welcome back to Yelm. In the 5-plus years you have been away, Pastor Jeff Adams has continued his enmity towards me and others, which had mostly taken a hiatus since the 2016 election, until last week.
I just learned of a new bill that the Republicans are trying to get through Congress. It seems that states’ rights are only important when it works for their owners.
When the governors met with President Trump about what to do with school shootings, we thought Gov. Jay Inslee was very disrespectful to the President when he told the President he should tweet less about the problem.
The Thurston Conservation District has a budget of almost $2 million and is governed by an elected Board of Supervisors. But unlike other local elections, you will not receive a ballot automatically.
Regarding the recent failure of the Yelm school bond, I’d like to point out that the people who voted “no” did not necessarily vote “no” because they are mean-spirited or uncaring. Not buying something because you can’t afford it is not an excuse but, rather, a rational response.
