Some items of interest from today’s opinion pages:

• The Everett Herald makes the case why a recent Court of Appeals ruling overturning a Bothell man’s 2007 misdemeanor stalking conviction because the jury that convicted him was made up of residents from two counties.

• The Tri-City Herald celebrates strong Columbia salmon returns and concludes that something short of dam breaching must be working.

• The Walla Walla Union-Bulletin cheers Veterans Affairs’ new rule that veterans will no longer have to prove their post-traumatic stress disorder was triggered by specific bomb explosion or combat event.

• The Idaho Statesman eulogizes Vernon Baker, the black soldier from Idaho who belatedly received the Medal of Honor for his World War II battlefield valor after a study concluded that he had been wrongly denied the military’s top award because of his race.
