Letter - Help volunteer firefighters; don’t shoot off fireworks

Take a moment and show your appreciation for your volunteer firefighters in Columbia and Walla Walla counties. They are on duty for us, providing first-class, responsive fire and property protection, including education for rural forest homeowners.

Letter - Band to end 25th anniversary with July 4 concert

The Walla Walla Valley Concert Band will complete its 25th anniversary season on the Fourth of July in Pioneer Park when it performs at 1 p.m.

Letter - Salmon will continue to survive

Wow! No salmon, fewer salmon, breach the dams, destroy crops, orchards. Some nuts just cannot get out of a rut. So let’s look at things from the beginning.

Letter - Gossip can cause great damage in people’s lives

“Loose lips sink ships” was a saying from World War II.

Letter - Bible makes clear homosexuality is wrong

In the June 24 “Our Reader’s Opinions,” Randy Klassen stated that Sodom and Gomorrah were not judged by God for homosexuality because Ezekiel did not mention it. That is rather shortsighted, because the Old and New Testament condemns the practice in no uncertain terms.

Letter - Evolutionary frauds perpetuated on public

Wow! A new evolutionary human lineage based on nothing more than a partial jawbone, allegedly human! How many times are they going to trot out this evolutionary dead end before folks get fed up with being duped?

Letter - Our fool’s paradise won’t last much longer

What’s going on with the debt ceiling debacle? Did the so-called Supercommittee solve the problem? No, the Supercommittee was a disastrous flop. I guess this is the real world and not the comics where you can just pencil in a superhero to save the day.

Letter - Time to have equal rights for everyone

The civil rights movement has clearly become a fraud, it now has nothing to do with equal rights for all. It is now used to create special interest groups that are protected and allowed to discriminate against others.

Letter - Letters help reader keep up with state of world

Catching up on the news reading the Union-Bulletin letters to the editor, I’m relieved to see the Obama Threat Level has been lowered.

Letter - Litter at intersection looks trashy

I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s noticed the unsightly accumulation of litter at the Plaza Way and Ninth Avenue intersection. Even grass that’s long past due for mowing doesn’t hide the plastic bottles, Styrofoam cups, paper, etc., etc., that mar this entrance to Walla Walla.
