Letter: What a gift: U.S. flag
It was gratifying, as a military veteran, to see increased numbers of residences, businesses and government offices flying/displaying the U.S. flag on Veterans Day. Just a thought to add: Perhaps a good gift idea for the holiday season would be to purchase a flag and/or the mounting...

Letter: Many valid reasons to reject new Pierce Co. Jail
