Note: The allegations Tattershall presents in the following letter are being investigated. In response to the inaccurate opinion article in the April 11, 2018 edition of the Evergreen titled “Don’t allow athletics to siphon money from housing, dining,” I’d like to set the record straight. Hous...

Thanks for your editorial supporting high school students’ right to speak up, especially when it involves their safety (“Support students’ decision to speak up” by the Editorial Board, The Daily Evergreen, March 22, 2018). Many seniors can vote because they are often 18, but all students can ...

Letters to the Editor | Don’t increase parking price

PATTI ELSHAFEI, Pullman

February 27, 2018


Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

Parking wants to increase rates … again. Absolutely absurd.  They need to take a 2.5 percent decrease like academic programs on campus instead of raising parking rates.  They tried to trick the university consumers into believing that there was no increase this fall 2017 — but by changing...

Letters to the Editor | House should consider immigration bill

NORM LUTHER, Spokane

February 27, 2018


Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

Americans’ memories for political events are notoriously short-lived, but one event should never be forgotten amid our great immigration controversy.  That involves the bipartisan immigration reform bill the U.S. Senate passed by a veto-proof 68-32 margin on June 27, 2013.  The bill included a nationwide...

RICK FLORES, Pullman

February 13, 2018


Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

These opinions and comments are mine and mine alone and do not represent the views of any clubs or organizations I am affiliated with. I did not realize how little ASWSU Senators sought out the opinions of their constituents until I watched the live stream of the senate meeting where they voted on the ...

Judge Lanese’s ruling against legislative exemptions to the Public Records Act was definitive and obvious: The legislature is a state agency and hence subject to the act, as a rational person would conclude.

Letters to the Editor | Higher student voting turnout necessary for change

WILLIE DICKERSON, Snohomish

February 1, 2018


Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

Only 7 percent of the student body voting raises questions. (“Server issues didn’t impact turnout, chair says” by Linh Nguyen, The Daily Evergreen, Tuesday) Is this a mistake? Do these elections matter? How many of these students vote in state and national elections? Do they know they live in the l...

Letters to the Editor | Pink Pussyhats should not divide feminists

RUTH GREGORY, Pullman

February 1, 2018


Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

It saddened me to see the opinion article “Pink Pussyhats problematic for populace” in The Daily Evergreen on Tuesday, which criticized the wearers of the political hat without any context. I say “without context” because I am the woman in the picture and my husband is the man. Our picture was tak...

JOHN MILLER, Tacoma

Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

I am discouraged to read of the proposed cuts to The Daily Evergreen. If there is one thing that is needed in our society today, it is the demonstrated importance and independence of the media.
