Letter - Turner committed to safety of citizens

Please join me in re-electing John Turner for sheriff of Walla Walla County.

Letter - Admission to the fair is too high

Whoever did the Walla Walla Fair & Frontier Days website did the public a great disservice.

Letter - Sheriff Turner changes with the times

I began working for the Walla Walla County Sheriff’s Office in 1993 as a jail officer. I have been a reserve deputy sheriff since 2001.

Letter - Highland Road needs to be fixed

The neighbors who live near or on Highland Road would be more open to a city pool if the city would consider a new street.

Letter - ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ was well-done show

I, my husband, some family members and friends attended “Fiddler on the Roof” on July 11. Wow, what an evening of great entertainment!

Letter - Let’s discuss what is really disgusting!

Sue Flemming’s personal attack on me is utterly ridiculous. She obviously did not investigate Tom Cooper’s background.

Letter - Turner wrong to release undocumented immigrants

At a recent Walla Walla Tea Party meeting held before the primary elections, a former Los Angeles police officer — Sheriff John Turner — proudly announced that he was one of the first county sheriff’s in Washington state to prohibit holding anyone in a county jail who had been identified by Immigration and Customs Enforcement as being an undocumented immigrant.

Letter - Proud to serve with Sheriff Turner

Having spent the better part of 25 years as a resident of Walla Walla, I consider it a privilege to serve the people as a deputy sheriff. Although I have only been with the office since 2012, and some may deem my voice as that of “the new guy,” I have spent the last decade of my life serving in the United States Navy and the United States Marine Corps on both active duty and in the reserves.

Letter - US does nothing to save Christians in Iraq

Immigrants from all nationalities have been seeking refuge in America from oppression and certain death. So why aren’t we giving refuge to the Christians about to be slaughtered in Iraq?

Letter - Younger Americans will pay for Obama’s debt

You have senseless killings going on all over the world in Syria, Iraq, Israel, Palestine, Ukraine and Afghanistan, just to name a few.
