  • Papers Please

    Chris McDaniel, Courier Publisher|Oct 27, 2021

    "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..." A tale of two states. As I was perusing the website of a newspaper I used to work for in Western Washington, my eye was caught by a headline that made me grateful I no longer live there. It was, "Proof of vaccination required at these businesses and events." That means, for the unvaccinated, entrance is barred. Your money is no good. You are an outcast. I am pretty sure such policies are the definition of discriminatory practices. The... Full story

    Jim Elliott|Oct 27, 2021

This is the kind of publicity that most communities would not want to have because it would serve as a deterrent to the economic growth of an area. Well, that would have been the case years... Full story
