    Letters to the Editor, June 17

    Mr. Don Bremmer’s recent letters to the editor (March 11 and June 10, Gateway) regarding City utility rates paint a skewed and sometimes erroneous picture of utility rate history in Gig Harbor. First, the City’s three utilities are separate entities. Second, rates have not been raised...

    Is it time to completely ban outdoor burning in Pierce County except for small ceremonial fires in a container or a three-foot pit when weather conditions allow?

    Ms. Elliott's recent letter (Gateway, April 8) states the courts should decide the validly of the referendum against the $230 million new administration building.

    I am an 88-year-old senior citizen who crosses the Narrows Bridge daily to visit my husband who is living in an adult family care home in Tacoma. I never thought I would see the day that it would cost $4.50 to cross the Narrows Bridge, and now the toll is rising to $5, then $5.50, then ???? Let'...
