Executive Bailout Letters To The Editor

As an American citizen, I am totally fed up with our judicial system. They can put Martha Stewart in prison for her actions with the stock market but the CEO’s of all these banks, stock market and mortgage companies can walk away with their big salaries and huge bonuses.

Appel for judge

Ever since hiring George Appel as a deputy prosecutor over 15 years ago, I have been impressed with his uncommon work ethic, sound character, good judgment and superior legal skills. He was a valued member of our staff and enjoys to this day great respect among his peers.

What ever happened to common sense?

We incarcerate people, set them up to fail, and then complain about recidivism. We ignore poverty and all the other underlying causes of crime, then decide to be “tough” after the fact.

Val Stevens is the right choice

Since Val Stevens was elected to the House and Senate, she has worked tirelessly for those “just average voters” in her district, no special interests.

The end of an era

This is so sad. I started working for Bayliner boats in 1986, prior to them being bought by Brunswick. A lot of changes have taken place in our lives and in this company.

Vote for Wilson

I turn on my TV and I see Barack Obama and John McCain. During commercials I see Dino Rossi and Christine Gregiore. What a breath of fresh air it is to have a candidate come to my door and actually talk about what’s important to me. That candidate is Joe Wilson.

Victims’ Rights

We represent various aspects of Dawson Place Child Advocacy Center, a child-focused environment that has been decades in the making. We know George Appel because he has worked for over 15 years holding our county’s worst criminals accountable, providing justice for the most vulnerable victims and keeping our communities safe. He is a mentor, a judge pro tem, a community leader and one of the most honest, genuine people you will ever meet.
