The Goldendale Sentinel - Headlines & History since 1879

It's not just a number, it's Independence Day

To the Editor


Tip of the hat to the editor’s band and everyone at the concert on the Courthouse lawn but especially to Mayor Clint Baze for his comments on the radio to another person complaining about celebrations on the most important American holiday. It’s not merely a number, it’s Independence Day. Would we exist without it?

Same with Christmas, a “happy holiday.” If you believe that, then advertise the name—Christmas. Why keep holidays humble, wimpy, quiet, clean. Should we change the Fourth of July into “Dependence Day”?
