Wish Herald had asked before making switch of comics

Like a good cup of coffee, I count on reading the paper each morning. And, part of reading the paper is the comics section. It gives a certain rhythm to my day. The other day I read the information about the need to consolidate the comics in all of your publications to allow for more news content, but I had no idea that so many of my favorite comics would be eliminated! Needless to say, I am mourning the loss of Zits, Dilbert, Mother Goose and Baby Blues! The replacements that were randomly chosen without reader input are lame and unsatisfying!

I just re-upped my yearly subscription, and a few days later (after the check was in the mail) I got a call to renew and get my payment in. If my business was so important for the company to make sure I was still a subscriber, why wouldn’t we be asked about which comics we preferred? While I appreciate the news content of The Herald, I also need the comics to be a well-rounded reader. With all the heavy news these days, we (Herald customers) deserve a little levity of our choosing. Please reconsider these choices and how these decisions are made; paying customers deserve the chance to have input!

Editorial: Waiting could force bad choice on dams, salmon

Work should begin now to begin replacing what four dams on the Snake River provide.

Joe Kennedy, a former assistant football coach at Bremerton High School in Bremerton, Wash., poses for a photo March 9, 2022, at the school's football field. After losing his coaching job for refusing to stop kneeling in prayer with players and spectators on the field immediately after football games, Kennedy will take his arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday, April 25, 2022, saying the Bremerton School District violated his First Amendment rights by refusing to let him continue praying at midfield after games.

Editorial: Court majority weakens church, state separation

The Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision does more to hurt religious liberty than protect a coach’s prayer.
