Letter to the Editor: Red-light camera reevaluation

  • Feb 26, 2015 at 5:01PM

I also have other reservations about the red-light cameras. Bremerton is a town full of working-class families that often cannot afford a $124 ticket. Citizens who cannot afford the ticket are often the least knowledgeable about the justice system, and most likely to fall through the cracks. All too often, governments view citizens primarily as a source of revenue.

I am not going to say this is a male trait, because between me and my husband, I am the one who doesn’t like to ask for directions. Maybe it is an introverted thing. I’d rather wander aimlessly through the hardware store aisles than ask for help, because then I might have to make conversation. Worse, I might get an overly helpful employee who wants to hand-deliver me to the correct place. Both instances strike fear and awkwardness in my heart.

Art Commission can live again

In November 2011 the City Council, in a 5-4 vote, approved an ordinance that put the city’s 1 percent funding for the arts program and its subsequent Arts Commission on hold.

My Turn: President Obama on wrong track with Alaska energy

  • Feb 20, 2015 at 11:00AM

In his State of the Union address, President Obama highlighted plunging gas prices. Ironic, since Obama has done everything in his power to curtail domestic oil production and drive up gas prices.
