Letters to the Editors



Letter to the Editor: Clean water

To the editor: I enjoy fishing and boating on clean, healthy rivers. Greg Walden’s committee has just supported legislation (HR3043) which, if passed, would make it easier for owners and operators of hydroelectric dams to avoid complying with our nation’s Clean Water Act.

Letter to the Editor: Opioid Crisis

To the editor: I was pleased to see in the news recently that Oregon District 2 Rep. Greg Walden has taken an interest in the opioid crisis in Oregon. For messaging purposes, so far, so good. But for actually meeting the needs of people affected by opioid addiction, not so good.

Letter to the Editor: Kindness counts

To the editor: What ever happened to those days when macaroni necklaces and handprints on a card were priceless treasures? What ever happened to those days when $5 would buy a family of six a gift for Christmas? What ever happened to the true meaning of Christmas?

Letter to the Editor: Living treasures

To the editor: One of the many benefits of small town life is the presence of “living treasures,” individuals and enterprises that rise to the occasion of community needs and honor us with the bounty of their expertise and leadership. We are their opportunity and they are our mentors. They’ve put The Dalles on the map in music and the arts, sports programs, ecology, education, spirituality, entrepreneurship and social welfare.

Letter to the Editor: Intolerant path

To the editor: I'm trying to figure out when intolerance trumps intolerance (no pun intended). A recent letter praises Mr. Trump, saying “God bless Donald Trump.” Do people that follow Jesus, God and such really buy into Trump's path?

Letter to the Editor: Why not stand?

To the editor: Where have all the decent Republicans gone? I am a life long Democrat who has voted for Republicans who have exhibited genuine concern for the well-being of their constituents. There were some I didn’t vote for, but later found them intelligent, reasonable and respectable representatives. However, today’s Republicans are a different beast.

Letter to the Editor: The future is bright

To the editor: This letter to the editor is about opportunity, about Oregon, about positive Oregon politics. It’s about a candidate for Governor who is making waves. A candidate who offers you solid pragmatic opportunity without the far left’s hide and seek politics of irrational tax programs that make our lives expensive, restrict growth, offers highly expensive but poor education for our children, that turns our cities into vagrant slums full of drugs and needles.

Letter to the Editor: Walden serves self

To the editor: There should be no more question as to who Congressman Greg Walden truly serves: Himself. Thanks to Walden and the Trump administration, you can expect to pay more and get less service from your internet service provider.

Letter to the Editor: Time is now

To the editor: Now is the time to get behind our own Senator Jeff Merkley and urge him to run for President in 2020. Those of us here in Oregon know his progressive and common sense views on the issues and his beyond reproach integrity.
