  • Volunteers keep organizations thriving

    Dale Brown, The Journal|Updated Apr 16, 2024

    RITZVILLE – Without a cadre of folks willing to invest their time and skills to keep clubs, churches, school-sponsored programs and not-for-profit organizations running smoothly, many would languish. Others might disappear entirely. During the week of April 21-27, dubbed "National Volunteer Appreciation Week," volunteers will receive a measure of recognition for their efforts. President Richard Nixon began the tradition 50 years ago with an executive order, and successive p...

  • Schoesler keeping tabs on gun case

    The Journal|Updated Apr 16, 2024

    RITZVILLE — Sen. Mark Schoesler is following a gun case in Western Washington closely. On Monday, April 8, Cowlitz County Superior Court Judge Gary Bashor ruled that the 2022 state law banning high-capacity magazines is unconstitutional. “As you might guess, Attorney General Bob Ferguson did not take this news well,” Schoesler, R-Ritzville, said in an email. The case involves Gator Custom Guns in Kelso, which was sued by the state in an effort to stop the business from selling magazines capable of holding more than 10 round...

  • Study: capping rent costs won't help

    Mark Harmsworth|Updated Apr 16, 2024

    In a backwards approach to helping tenants, the Federal Government is capping rent increases on subsidized housing at 10% in a bid to reduce the cost of rental properties. The result, should the measures be adopted, will be exactly the opposite and rents will go up. When you place caps on rent, instead of letting the market drive the pricing, the supply of rental property declines and the result is higher demand and higher prices for rent. There is a short-term impact to...

  • Welcome to My Kitchen

    Laura Estes|Updated Apr 16, 2024

    Four seasons of weather all happened in one day this past week. Sometimes meal preparation is like the weather. Life throws out multiple tasks and responsibilities each day and cooking must happen in between. Several easy to prepare recipes came my way and they are a nice change from slow-cooker dishes. Barb Schlimmer of Odessa shared the recipe for Sloppy Joe Casserole, a dish she brought to a recent potluck dinner. She found the recipe on all-recipes.com. Chop the...

  • Elect Conroy to represent Eastern Washington

    Updated Apr 16, 2024

    Carmela Conroy gives Eastern Washington voters the unusual, important opportunity to elect a foreign policy expert as their U.S. Representative. As a foreign service officer for 24 years, she served in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Norway, New Zealand and Tom Foley’s Japan office. Voters must weigh foreign policy experience much more than usual in their 2024 voting decisions.

  • Now get to work

    Dale Anderson|Updated Apr 16, 2024

    There have been a lot of changes in NCAA basketball. UConn won its second championship in a row — in case you forgot. Coaches moved to different challenges, replacing coaches who were fired or took a successful season and received a bigger paycheck somewhere else.

I like Riley, but I wish he hadn’t said this was his dream job because a lot of dream job...
